Nokia promises to "wow" with announcements (video)
Nokia’s chief executive officer Stephen Elop took over the Finnish phone maker nearly two years ago, and now, a year and a half after he announced that Nokia will adopt Windows Phone as its main platform, the company’s today event will be the big test for not only the phone maker but the CEO as well. We’re roughly two hours ahead of the event, and setting the tone for the allegedly upcoming Lumia 920 with PureView technology and a more affordable colorful Lumia 820, Elop promised to wow customers this time.

Nokia’s head showed great confidence in the upcoming devices and said they are a part of an ongoing plan, the next step in the development for Nokia’s Lumia lineup of Windows Phone smartphones.

When asked about Samsung’s ATIV S, the first officially announced Windows Phone 8 phone, Elop smiled and convincingly explained that on September 5th Nokia will be showing “the very first working Windows Phone device” with the focus on “working,” obviously as opposed to Samsung’s ATIV S that we don’t know all that much about.

After nearly two years at the helm at Espoo, Finland, Elop also promised that today will be the first time for us to see the “full power and might of the Nokia R&D team” and the “fully differentiated experience” on Lumias. And while investors are not so certain and generally bearish for Nokia's prospects, but there is still hope for the company. Stay tuned, the event kicks off in less than two hours and we’ll be covering it live.
