Nokia has a surprise in stock for September 7
It looks like Nokia has something exciting to amaze us with, judging by the signs posted in front of its flagship store in Helsinki. The store is currently closed down for renovation and will open its doors again on September 7 when "something amazing" will also be in stock, apparently.

Given Nokia's current state, the only things that could possibly amaze us are a Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphone or two. Could the first arrivals land on September 7? There is a slight chance of that happening since Nokia World begins on September 5 this year, so new device announcements might be planned for the first day of the event. Of course, putting them up for sale two day after their potential announcement would be quite a feat, although that would not be entirely impossible.

If you are of the observant kind, you have probably noticed that on the photo below, there is a QR code being displayed as well. Unfortunately, the link it leads to does not reveal much. It takes you to a Nokia web site called Graffiti Me where you can upload a photo of yours and turn it into a graffiti-like image. There are also hints about amazing things "at your new Nokia store", and that is pretty much it. Nokia promises to reveal more in the coming week.

What kind of surprise could Nokia have for us? Could it really be a Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphone, as we are hoping, or is it something far less exciting? Let us know what you think by dropping a comment.

So we can't expect a Lumia Windows Phone before that or any other WP8 Devices?

Stephen Elop Action Figures. Limit 2 per customer. Try not to get too excited.

I was thinking more along the lines of an epic bankruptcy announcement... perhaps followed by an enormous celebratory public corporate liquidation picnic with lots of macaroni salad and devilled eggs, where Elop will be graciously taking his turn in the dunk tank? It would be great to get three baseball throws at the dunker for a dollar... if enough ex-Nokia employees from Espoo show up, they could make a real killing and place a good down-payment toward getting an attorney to defend them from their shareholders... my only request is that, when he takes his turn in the dunk tank, for Elop to NOT wear a speedo...

Whatever you do, just don't shoot the messenger...

How have you been, gator-man? As always, good to see you on here.

I'll probably be away for a while as we get closer to the end of July. I am going in for surgery again, so I'll be out of it for a while. And by the way, I'm not killing you... your laughter is. Nyuk nyuk... =8-P

Have a great week!

"you crazy rest of the world" ... i would say "we normal people rest of the world" .. You see, America is a great country, it really is! But there are some things i can't support. Like the fact you call Football soccer, And name a game that doesn't have nothing to do with a FOOT and a BALL, Football! And expect to be right! Well, you're not! Same thing with the date! You're wrong, won't admit, hit the nail hard on the matter! I think i made my point.

i know this is not a dot.uk site but you commented on the picture posted in this article and it was mentioned that 'its flagship store in Helsinki' which is in finland. Its all I'm saying, don't get me wrong man.

So you insult him/her; but you just had to preface the insult with 'American' - why? Did you assume he/she was American because of Cleveland in the username, or because your general opinion of Americans is that they are not intelligent?

In either case, you would be wrong - everyone in Cleveland wasn't born and/or raised in America, Cleveland could be his name (and not a place), and Americans are no less intelligent than anyone else in the world.

I don't want to offend anybody here. That wasn't my point. I assumed he's American for his logic!
I'm not saying Americans are less intelligent than anyone else in the world (the contrary if so!).
But if you're from the US and come with the point that Cleveland could be his name.... bad news for you too :(

No disappointment here... I've already been expecting the worst for many, many months in advance!

I love being a cynic... I tell everybody about how awful things are going to be, and then when things don't happen that way, I am relieved along with everyone else. On the rare occasions when the worst does happen, I get to laugh aloud while everyone else cries their eyeballs out... I am almost never surprised by anything, ever.

CDMA phones, please. WP needs devices on every carrier.

Be nice to see Sammy and HTC try and beat them. Competition is fun.....

AN internet article stated Mr. Elop said that Nokia has a special relationship with Microsoft therefore it is not stupid to think that Nokia could Launch their Windows 8 smart phones in September. Microsoft knows that Nokia has lost a lot of money in setting themselves up as a Windows smart\ phones only company so Microsoft will allow them to have First crack at selling Windows 8 smart phones. I think in the End Microsoft will ether buy The Nokia Smart phone division or loan Nokia billions of dollors to stay afloat. I think it would be better for Microsoft to buy them out right so Microsoft can sell it's own brand of windows smart phones as well as Nokia branded smart phones. Also look for a Nokia RT Tablet computer to go on sale.

If it's not a Windows Phone 8 phone Nokia will probably die as the company the very next day.
