Nokia asks "Have you heard what's coming?"

Nokia asks
Nokia has posted a 15 second video on its YouTube channel that teases something new. The clip, which is accompanied by the sound of a motor revving and a vehicle driving away, says in printed white letters, "Have you heard what's coming?" on a black background. Considering that earlier reports had the Nokia Icon delayed until this month, this could be a teaser for that Verizon exclusive.

The Nokia Icon offers the same high end specs seen on the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, albeit with a more pocketable 5 inch screen. An earlier report gave Microsoft's purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services business as the reason for the delay. According to this report, Verizon wants to deal with just Microsoft and not with Nokia as well. This way, Big Red and Microsoft can work on a cohesive marketing plan for the phone without worrying if another company is on board with it.

On the other hand, this could be a spot for the Rich Recording capabilities on the Nokia Lumia 1520. The Finnish manufacturer has already released a short 17 second video for the feature, which should also be found on the Nokia Icon.

"Have you heard what's coming?" Yes, Microsoft is selling Nokia to Lenovo! :D

He is right. I feel disgusted when I saw Windows Phone logo under the great Nokia name. I love Nokia but I hate Mictobitch

That is your personal opinion, I on the other hand are happy to see MS and Nokia work even closer together, great software and hardware, that is a win in my book.

Ha ha...that won't be Nokia hardware anymore once the deal is done, cowboy. Bet Apples to Oranges you won't see a ton of former Nokia employees stick around for too long at Microsoft either.

Comments like yours is what annoys me about uninformed individuals who give opinions without actually doing some research beforemaking such comments, had you done that you would have known that all 32,000 Nokia employees are now a part of Microsoft as part of the deal and that they will indeed be working on future Lumias. Now you know cowboy. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/press/2013/sep13/09-02announcementpr.aspx

Where did I say that they weren't going to be MS employees? I said good luck if all of them stick around. No matter how you try to put your fanboy spin on it, Microsoft handsets will not be Nokia handsets. Bunch of Herbert's on this site these days...

The engine sound just doesn't make much sense. It would have been more of a teaser to show a brief fly-over glimpse of a part of a device body.

We're all going to laugh at your comment when Nokia unveils their new smartphone with a built-in diesel generator and a 20 liter fuel tank. What we heard in the clip was someone starting their new Lumia, then running away. Huzzah, no more need to worry about battery life! Innovation!

Perhaps the idea is - being that the sound in the back is most probably from a muscle-car engine - that the idea they're trying to go with is - "Do you hear what's coming"- Answer being - something powerful, by the sound of the roars from the engine - 1820 maybe?
