Nokia EOS Windows Phone to make a cameo May 14, BlackBerry prepping mid-May roadmap event, too
Turns out that we might see the Nokia EOS Lumia monster with the 808 PureView sensor announced together with the slim Catwalk version of the 920 destined for AT&T.

Sources are now implying that it will be the EOS as well unveiled at the May 14 press conference in London, and we won't be exaggerating when we say that fans have been watching and waiting for a while now that a camera the rank of PureView Phase 1, with its 41 MP, pixel-binning and lossless zoom tech, receives a modern mobile OS to go with it.

Mid-May, said the sources, is also when BlackBerry will giddy up to unveil a roadmap with new phones and other products, during the BlackBerry Live conference in Orlando May 14-16. The BlackBerry Q10, with its QWERTY keyboard, is expected to be detailed again there, but also new mid-range models for markets where BB is strong like SE Asia, Middle East and Africa.

The BlackBerry Q10 sales have been strong so far, the observers noted, with Vodafone, Orange, Bell, Rogers and Telus, as well as some retail shops, going low on inventory.

I believe the rumored 6-incher phablet will be reserved for this year end as the flagship, to go head on with Galaxy Note 3. After all, Nokia needs to wait for the GDR3 update to be able to slap in 1080p resolution. Personally in my opinion, this EOS has only 4.5 to 4.7' screen, it wont reach 5', hence there is no need to for 1080p resolution.

HTC (One series and Butterfly series) and Samsung both makes 2 flagships (S series and Note series) in a year. So, year end will be something like a giant competition, literally.

THE Lumia EOS wil be introduced in May 14. But I think it'll be available sometime in Q4. I'm hoping the sooner though.

I guess a new Flagship (with new Processor and Pureview Phase 3) might still be introduced in year end in conjunction with the release of Windows Blue.

The earliest will be Q3. It wont be available by Late June i believe. I just hope that Nokia decided to put in Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM just to shut up the haters. SD 800 is the only Snapdragon processor that can handle that much pixels, unless Nokia use a lower powered processor and bundle in a dedicated image chip like what they did on the 808.

Battery? Go for a minimum of 2500mAh, It should provide average to decent battery life (given that i dont expect the screen to be 1080p, and it will be in AMOLED variant).

The closest other brands can come may be the rumored 20MP cybershot Sony Honami, but i dont think it can surpass the EOS - unless Sony proves to me that they dont repeat the mistake of "shows off how great the camera is" and ends up being underwhelming. Sony has not slapped in a spectacular camera into their phones since the Ericsson name is gone.

And for wendy, thanks for entertaining me with the funniest joke of the day.

EOS will be huge.
The 808 weighs 170g with a 4 inch screen, and thick as two galaxy s4 phones
