Nokia will hold a mystery VIP event in Los Angeles on July 28, could be related to HERE Maps
If you consider yourself an avid fan of mobile gadgets and technology, but are completely oblivious as to why Nokia is still loved by many despite the fact that it's basically out of the market, then you should certainly re-evaluate the claims that you're an industry enthusiast. Either you hated or loved it, Nokia was the driving of the mobile industry for a long time, but sadly, due to one reason or another, it was forced out of the market it partially created. 

It's quite easy to see why the once-dominant handset giant is still loved by many, who eagerly anticipate Nokia's return that has been rumored for a long time now, as well as its long-expected embrace of the Android platform. We will have to wait a couple of months before we could hypothetically see a new device with the Nokia logo at the front, but this doesn't mean that it will mum the word until then.

On the contrary, it seems that Nokia Technologies, which is basically the owner of the Nokia brand, is holding a VIP event in Los Angeles on July 28, invites for which are already flying here and there. The slogan on the invite is "Nowhere, now here", hinting that the company's past, present, and future will likely be discussed.

The acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent as well as the partnership with Meizu will probably be some of the topics that will be covered on July 28, but all of us are probably hoping for the big news, i.e. Nokia to announce that it intends to return to the market with a bang next year. Judging from the invitation, the rumored off-loading of HERE Maps to BMW, Audi, and Mercedes could also be the topic of the VIP event. Until July 28, however, our speculations will be merely wishful thinking.

Thank you Nokia for establishing the smartphone world. You were the largest phone manufacturer along 14 years. This world would have been much different without you. I hope your legend comeback soon
Billions still adore you!

Sounds like the Nokia N9 Tablet is coming to the USA with a pure view camera aboard it
and Perhaps Nokia is partnering with ether Google or another company. they said they wanted to partner with someone when they come back to selling smart phones.

This is about Nokia Here and not about some new phone, Nokia is working a while now on payments with Here!
They want one system which allows you to pay with in different countries for public transport!
So NOWHERE makes sense to me :)

Or this is a camera related product, I know there are working on cameras!

It is interesting to note that Microsoft's Windows 10 debuts the next day Us Windows fans have been wanting Nokia to introduce their new N1 tablet running Windows 10 mobile for sale. why not the Windows 10 operating system would be FREE to nokia because the Nokia N1 Tablet has a 7.9 inch HD plus resolution screen. WOW what a great Tablet it would be to have. Folks incidentally the original surface Mini was rumored to have this sized screen Hmm maybe Nokia toke over the design since Microsoft gave up on the surface mini and made it their OWN.
