Nokia teases event for Monday; could be a maps related announcement
posted by Alan F. / Jun 15, 2012, 10:13 PM
Getting back to the tablet for a second, there is the possibility that Nokia is manufacturing the Microsoft tablet. But what then to make of the Hawaiian Islands display and zoom controls reference? Back last month we told you that Bing Maps is going to get traffic info powered by Nokia along with Geocoding which could be the subject of the announcement being teased. Actually, it would make a lot of sense considering the picture that Nokia is teasing us with.
The good news is, we will find out what it all means on Monday. Until then, we invite you to give us your best guess at what Nokia is trying to tell us. And no, it isn't "Bobby Jo fell down the well." You can give us your best guess by typing your comment in the box below.

They gonna announce something related to Nokia 808 PureView. b'cuz that's a map of Hawaii and Hawaii has '808' area code.

I really hope the 808 comes to the states. I'll have plenty of options come November for my upgrade.

But please don't have hopes too high as Tr0janH0rse has already said its selling 808-Pureview for FULL PRICE and no contract/ subsidized price... But I would be happy, if I am proved wrong... Lets wait and see...

Facebook is full of speculation that it's about the 808, due to the Hawai'i area code (as mentioned by modernkoro above) and Roland TR-808 also being an 808-named model (edit: as stated above by cityeighteen) http://www.facebook.com/#!/Nok

This Nokia event might be in connection to Microsofts event. Microsoft might be announcing the software for their Win8/WP8/RT and Nokia might announce the hardware (i.e. new Lumia phone and a tablet).
