Nokia has announced the dates and location of this year's Nokia World - the event that covers everything 'Nokia'. While Nokia World 2011 in London was a blast, we're looking forward to the next event from the manufacturer as it's most probable that Windows Phone 8 ("Apollo") handsets will be unveiled. All we know for the moment is that it's going to be a fairly sizeable show with it being held on Nokia's home turf in Helsinki, Finland.
September 25-26 are the set dates and the Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre is the designated venue. 2012 will be the first year that the event has been held in Finland, which couldn't be better timed with Helsinki being officially titled as the World Design Capital for the year.

This makes me thing that a November release for WP8 sounds about right to me.
Will there be a WP8 PureView phone on show -- and then on sale for Chirstmas?
You bet you blueberries there will!
Ok, Ok! I want a Nokia 1010 with a 4.4" HD screen, HDMI out, 3000mah battery, Dual core, Pure view camera, 1080p capture, NFC, Barometer, and WP8!! Yeah that will do.
I'm so glad they're holding this year's event at their hometown. I'm thinking this event is when Nokia fully comes back, especially with Windows Phone 8 releasing around that timeframe. I'm also expecting a Windows 8 tablet (anything can happen lol). I so can't wait to get a Nokia device next year :)
