Nokia to hold event on October 22nd to "reinvent innovation"; expect the Lumia 1520

Nokia never ceases to innovate. That's the mind-set for the majority of it customers and also the company, who has taken to Twitter to unveil an event happening on October 22nd.

What makes this date so special? Nokia cancelled a New York event for this month, which was to announce the Lumia 1520, a 6-inch Windows Phone and also a Windows 8 RT Tablet. There's not much to go on regarding location, but there are some subtle hints in the image, we're sure.

Nokia October Event

Earlier, the Twitter account Evleaks reported an October 22nd date for Nokia's next "launch" and that appears to be accurate. So what do we expect to see at this event? We believe this announcement will be what was to be held in September - expect to see the Lumia 1520 (as noted above), as well as a potential Windows tablet codenamed 'Sirius' from Nokia and other accessories that are surely to follow.

Yesterday Windows Phone Central reported that the Lumia 1520 will be launching on AT&T on November 8th for an expected $699 off-contract price tag. The device will also come in four colors, including red, yellow, white and black. With the October 22nd date on hand, that will give Nokia and AT&T a two week launch window for the device, falling in line with their recent Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 launches.

Check out our recent coverage of the upcoming device. We'll reach out to Nokia and see what more we can dig up.
