Both Nokia Lumia EOS and the Nokia Windows Phone Phablet coming later this year?
Other things that Windows Phone fans have to look forward to according to the post, include the roll out of the GDR2 Windows Phone 8 update to all Windows Phone 8 models in June and July. The Nokia Lumia 925 already sports this update out of the box. GDR3, which brings support for 1080p displays, will be pushed out in the fall. Early next year, we will see what the source calls the "final chapter in WP's book," Windows Phone Blue. This, he says, will unite all of Microsoft's platforms with common APIs. He mentions Windows Phone, Xbox and Windows all integrating into one united platform.
The post goes on to add that the eagerly awaited Nokia phablet/tablet will be launched around the 2013 holidays. And we shouldn't forget that the tipster says HTC and Huawei will each release a Windows Phone handset this holiday season, and one low to mid range model this summer. Nothing new is expected from Samsung.
Sounds like we should be tossing around the old salt shaker. While there is not anything too outlandish here, it is those plausible rumors that make the most sense that are usually the ones that come back to bite you on the rear.

Well they didn't come yesterday (I am disappoint), so they obviously come later this year. A pity.

EOS is coming around summer and Phablet (1080p and Quad core) is coming on Nokia World, but i think nokia will launch NL920 Borther with quad core and 1080p in Nokia World too.

if nokia makes the EOS really big and thick, big bezels, 2012 spec but only having a great camera, then I don't think they will sell much, since people want thin phones these days with lots of features, camera alone wont help.

Nokia would be foolish not to release a phablet, especially once WP8 provides support for 1080P displays. It's EOS 808 style technology would also be a boon to the WP platform, but hopefully they can slim down the camera module, since a camel hump on the back of the device isn't exactly sexy...
You can erase my previous comments on this thread. Thx!

If the EOS is the L edition with the 41+ Mp PV camera, it won't drop until the holiday shopping season. Most likely November, 2013. Add in 1080p display support around that time, and the release date becomes compelling. And EOS will be exclusive to AT&T.

They could, just as well, launch a camera centric device first, followed by an all encompassing flagship/phablet in time for the holiday season. In any event, a PV phase 1 device on WP8 will require the hefty processing power of the latest quadcore snapdragon. Recall, the older 808 accomplished this feat with a powerful GPU AND camera dedicated scaling chip. Therefore, the EOS timeline is tied to WP being quad core capable. For this reason, talk of an EOS announcement earlier this week was for the benefit of those shorting NOK stock...and the ingnorant crowd that bought this line.

My guess...first week in June, just before Apple's WorldWide Developers Conference on June 14.

...but I doubt it will be EOS...more than likely a small tablet.

I think Nokia would be crazy not to release a WP camera with GSM/4g. This will be the next significant form-factor imo.
