  • NOKIA 4 LIFE
  • Uh you mean Microsoft.
  • No not Microsoft, people respect Nokia because its supported the people in hard times with affordable phones.
    Nokia is for the people. I love Nokia and everything it stands for.
    I salute you Nokia :)
  • 4FS
  • Exactly
    looking at my first love the 8210 made in finland :)
  • I still got hopes the deal won't go through.. Just a feeling I have it shouldn't. Go buy blackberry instead Microsoft! sorry guys..
  • Can't wait hear about the new products.
  • Sorry, guys, CNET had theirs up first, so I have to watch them ;p
  • Why? They won't have anything good to say.
  • always good to hear different voices and laugh at the nonsense ones. "I can't post to instagram"
  • Watch here instead... this is OUR community. iCnet doesn't even share our passion for Nokia and Windows Phones.
  • Indeed.
  • Thought it was tomorrow?
  • Depending on your time zone, it could be today
  • So basically, its now? Video stream?
  • It's 11.40pm there I think
  • Nope but it is in California ;)
  • Check phone arena where there is a countdown clock...
  • Any word on what the Nokia 1320 is? Another evleaks showed a picture of it. Ah well, guess I'll know soon enough.
  • Big Screen, low specs
  • 1520-big screen great specs
  • So excited! Hope more than the 1520 come to AT&T, like the 1320.
  • The countdown has begun
  • I think there's still more than 11 Hrs to go..!!
  • More like 12m.
  • Is anything confirmed to be coming to Verizon?
  • Anything for T-Mobile?
  • Nokia needs to give T-Mobile something good. Tmo has all the high end phones from Samsung, HTC, LG, Apple. Even the new Sony xperia Z1 is coming. The only thing missing is a high end W8phone with decent memory.
  • I agree I hound them on twitter...
  • 929 I believe for Verizon. Not confirmed but you will soon find out.
  • Damn you schoooool ;(

  • Weird that they are pushing Asha still. I guess they have to continue business as usual till 2014, even it if means trotting out a soon to be dead platform.Asha will probably be swallowed into the low cost Lumia line
  • They should continue with asha line. Some ppl may not require a smartphone all the time. I would definitlely like a asha as my backup phone
