Nokia teases a QWERTY mobile phone, but don't get excited for a Lumia

Is it a plane? Is it a bird? No, it's a QWERTY Nokia mobile phone. The company has shared the above image alongside the teasing of an announcement, which will be published this coming Wednesday (April 24th). Has Nokia produced a QWERTY Lumia Windows Phone? We're going to say that's a negative. An Asha product is more likely.

The tease also states that Neil Broadley from the Mobile Phones team, as well as a special guest, will be present to show off what the company is looking to announce. It's a real shame as the image does reveal a Lumia-like design. Sorry, folks but we'll have to wait and see what's going to be announced this coming Wednesday. Just don't get your hopes up for a Windows Phone with a physical keyboard.
