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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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: 897; 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.

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...

38. Dr.Phil (Posts: 897; 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-Window​s-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.

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: 897; 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.

Dr.Phil is a paid shill, working for the competition, and his/her sole purpose is to write fundamentally negative and dishonest comments about Nokia and/or Microsoft products and services.

PHONE ARENA, please stop letting paid employees of other companies interfere with the user feedback process!

What a pathetic attempt to get people's attention away from what is really going on here. If I remember correctly, I just recently commented on an article in which I said that I believed Samsung had gone stale with it's innovation and how I believed they needed to pick up their pace in order to compete with the new offerings from companies like Sony. Would a Samsung employee or fanboy really say that about his own company?

In all honesty, I like to tell it like it is no matter what manufacturer or what OS is on the line.

Also, isn't it strange that CardiWPfan still hasn't mentioned what company he works for?

Not to get involved in any conflict between you guys but I have two questions that one of you might be able to answer. When will Sprint get some Nokia Lumia phones? Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have Windows Phones from Nokia except Sprint. What is going on between Sprint and Nokia?

The majority of people buying Nokia smartphones aren't buying them for WP8, they are buying them because Nokia builds great hardware, and their cameras and mapping app is great. Windows Phone, any version, is an anchor on the SS Nokia, keeping it from sailing to Prosperity Cove.

Just look at the user reviews on WP devices. They are consistently among the highest rated phones accross multiple carriers. Hell the HTC trophy has a 4.4 on verizon's website, the GS4 only has a 4.2. It's true, Nokia is running away with the compitition with their build quality, apps and camera's, the 928 has a 4.8 on verizon's web site. Yeah people really hate windows phone.

That is one cluttered home screen. Why not take advantage of the medium and large sized live tiles to make the simplicity of WP8 shine?

8. CardiWPfan (Posts: 129; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)


I believe that is an adobe emulator of a Windows phone 8 screen with addition tiles. The premise for this is to showcase what a bigger screen phone would look like with multiple tiles.

Anyone looking at this photo should see that if that were a large device, the thumb holding it would look smaller. As it is, I think it is a hacked Lumia 920. They simply shrank the LiveTiles.

Another bet I wouldn't take... The name. Nokia doesn't name like that. They use a series name, a lá Lumia or Asha, followed by a number, or a letter and number like the N8, or the brand name and a number, like the Nokia 3310. They've even said on a FAQ page for the Lumia 925, that they don't plan on changing their naming structure.
