Stephen Elop, the former CEO of Nokia and currently the Executive Vice President of the Microsoft Devices Group, will be making a keynote speech on September 9 as part of the "Super Mobility Week" conference at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

While we don't expect much in the way of new product announcements as part of this speech, it's possible that Elop will use his keynote time to give an overall update on Microsoft's first party hardware plans, including the company's Lumia devices for Windows Phone and the Surface tablets for Windows RT and Windows 8.1.

Elop has only been back at Microsoft as head of the devices division for about three months and there's a ton of challenges that he has to face, including little to no market share growth for Windows Phone devices in the US.

The "Super Mobility Week" conference, which is organized by the wireless industry trade group CTIA, will also feature keynote speeches from the CEOs of Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint. It will even have Thomas Dolby (remember "She Blinded Me with Science"? )as the conference's music director and house band leader.
