It's a glorious time in the mobile industry, for leaks and rumors are spreading like wildfire. Refusing to get overwhelmed by the barrage, though, we once again bring you what may very well turn out to be Nokia's first phablet...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

I cannot stand these people who are leaking the news. Meanwhile people like myself who signed Non Disclosure Agreement has to stay Mummed!!! Yes I can confirm this although I shouldn't that there is a Major announcement coming in September 2013!! Everything regarding Nokia Phablets, a Windows 8 Tablet Pro, and the next generation of Lumia's that will make the competition wake up. The Nokia Zoom will change how you think of taking pictures forever.

Uh...your first parts and the rest can start a war, lol.
I'm very curious... Landscape mode would look good on the phablet.

yes please!!!!! makes no sense that tablets have landscape mode and not phones
12. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
It is meant to start the war. I love competition it fuels the best out of OEM's!! But in all seriousness Nokia's R&D has been hard at work expect to see waterproof phones and tablets. Solar Charging phones and tablets as well. The Nokia ZOOM is something everyone needs to pay special attention to. You will hear more about that tomorrow.
18. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3866; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Oooooo...tomorrow. I'm getting the chills!! :D

Yes it is!! thats what makes the world go round lol
26. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
It should, I have a feeling the competition will be keeping a very close watchful eye. Nokia is out for blood!! I expect Sony to come with the big guns not too long after.

My advice would be to not take CardiWPfan for an actual employee. Please read my comment below. I believe CardiWPfan is impersonating an employee in order to make his information sound more legit.
45. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
I never claimed I worked for Nokia though. I'm just in the know. You don't have to take my word for anything. As I stated wait until tomorrow folks.
25. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
I know you do but unfortunately my N.D.A forbids me from sharing too much. I can tell you though tomorrow is the start of something big for Nokia. If you all think the announcement of the 41 Megapixel variant to the Nokia 808 is the only Phone coming. You would have been sadly mistaken.
28. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
Yeah, but WTF sort of a name is Bendit? The EOS sounds cool, the bendit, it makes no sense until it has a bendable screen.
39. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
mmmhm I don't know perhaps there maybe a flexible screen in the works!! Food for thought! Ooops I said too much. In all seriousness the name can always be changed. I wouldn't worry too much on that particular name keep a look out for trademarked names.
46. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1635; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Hmmmm....why has there been NO leaks of a bendable screen them If your going to pose as an employed at least say stuff that makes sense!
55. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
WHoyton1, quit your pointless yapping. CardiWPfan is free to speculate as much as he or she wishes...
22. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1214; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
Just curious, what do you do at Nokia? What department are you involved with and what is your position? I just have to make sure that we are getting a legitimate source and not someone who is just spouting off information, making people think that you are something that you're not. I mean in all honesty, the information you just posted are things that have already been rumored and suggested for a while now, so I guess my real question is what kind of information do you have to offer that would be new to us?
34. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
Dr. Phil I take no offence and yes some of these info has been shared relatively recently. I absolutely hate leaks it annoys not only us but Nokia has an entity. Expect more details on things to come tommorrow. Most of us are "HERE" in New York for the announcement tomorrow and the 41 Million reasons why Nokia will change photography onwards.
42. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1214; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
Your grammar is absolutely atrocious for a Nokia employee. If you truly are one, then I would like to write them an email asking them why they would hire someone who can barely write a proper paragraph.
50. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
Dr. Phil again let me make this clear "I DO NOT WORK FOR NOKIA". I never stated I did. As for my grammer, I suppose your an educator by profession?
61. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3866; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Dear Dr.Phil, are you the real Dr.Phil or just another impersonator who thinks he's Dr.Phil telling people not to impersonate someone not themself.
Seriously, if i were you, i would make ONE statement against Cardi (if you have to) and leave the rest for tomorrow. And this, i don't mean i'm against anyone!
70. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1214; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
My point was not whether his real name was CardiWPfan or whether your real name is Nathan. My point was that he was coming onto this site making comments in an attempt to try to make people believe he was someone who was "in the know" with "non-disclosure agreements" when, in reality, he was just an avid Nokia fan who liked to read up on information from various sites. I would've been more than alright if he made his comment without saying that he was some kind of employee with secret knowledge, when he really doesn't. It's knowledge that you can find by doing a simple Google search.
56. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Dr.Phil's great at impersonating other people himself, and is most likely working for Samsung. Too bad his favorite company's stock value dropped about 25 billion during the last two weeks...
32. Jeradiah3 (Posts: 1038; Member since: 11 Feb 2010)
Do you have a twitter page or sometihng because to know someone thats IN the mobile industry is a good thing. it keeps us comsumers informed of whats coming as well as your opinion about them
38. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1214; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
Actually, I did a little snooping using your screen name to find all of the past times you have commented on this site. I have to say I don't believe you work for Nokia or Microsoft or whatever you are claiming you work for. All you do is take information that is already out there on the internet and regurgitate it with this "non-disclosure agreement" to make it sound like you know something everyone else doesn't. The truth of the matter is, if you were an actual Nokia or Microsoft employee that had true access to that kind of information then I would assume you would be pretty high up in whatever department (whether it be R&D or marketing) to be able to see those kinds of devices. For someone who I would assume would have at least a college degree, you write as if you are still in high school. I'm not necessarily talking about this comment right here, but rather your past comments on this site (within the past 6 months).
Please tell me, why would someone who is "in the know" say something like:
"It seems very plausible that a Lumia Tablet announcement is imminent. based on the patents filed" -April 29, 2013. (http://www.phonearena.com/news/First-Nokia-Windows-Tablet-coming-May-14th_id42427)
If you are "in the know" then you shouldn't have to look at patent files to determine whether you think it's "plausible" that an announcement is imminent. I mean after all with all of those "non-disclosure agreements" that you have supposedly signed, you would imagine that that kind of information would be common knowledge.
On another article regarding the upcoming Lumia 928 for Verizon (at that time it was just rumored that there was going to be a Lumia device on Verizon, with no mention of the model name) you wrote:
"This will be either the Lumia 922 or Lumia 1022 device variants. Rumoured to be a 12mp or 16 mp still with dual core capabilities and improved functionality than its predecessor." (Jan 19 2013)
Wouldn't someone so "in the know" about those types of things at least have the model number right or the camera capabilities right? You were wrong about both.
Finally, I would assume a Nokia/Microsoft employee wouldn't have to go on their company's Facebook in order to tell their company about a problem, but in your case:
"I smell a law suit and patent infringement from Nokia's legal department. I have a Nokia Lumia 900 and these new Apple ipod nano's look awfully familiar!! I am about to bring it to Nokia's attention on facebook!!" (Sep 12 2012)
So I would advise everyone to please regard everything this person says to only be the equivalence of an internet rumor. I do not believe this person works for Nokia or Microsoft and has not signed any non-disclosure agreements. He is merely regurgitating information you can find on many tech sites and blogs.
44. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)
Dr. Phil I did not state I worked for Nokia, lets get that clear. Non Disclosure Agreement can always be signed in regards to affiliation to or a 3rd party vendor.
Since I am merely regurgitating information that many can find on many tech sites and blogs. Perhaps its best for everyone to wait until the "Big Announcement" tommorrow". Fear is fear Dr. Phil I take no offence.
49. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1214; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
So tell me then what company do you work for? Non-disclosure agreements do not cover stating what company you work for. If you truly are who you say you are then you should be able to answer that question.
You did say: "Everything regarding Nokia Phablets, a Windows 8 Tablet Pro, and the next generation of Lumia's that will make the competition wake up. The Nokia Zoom will change how you think of taking pictures forever." I assume that if you are in such the know about Nokia products and Microsoft products then you would be working for some kind of company involved with either of the two.
