Nokia to announce a "market disrupting device" on June 21st
One of the biggest events for Nokia, Nokia Connection 2011, kicks off in less than a week on June 21st in Singapore, but some of the mysterious devices coming up as “the next chapter” have already been teased. Namely, Nokia Australia has sent an invitation to iTWire for the announcement and demonstration of a “market disrupting device,” a definition coinciding with the terminology over at Espoo about MeeGo, “a future disruption in mobile ecosystem.”
The disruptor “will be unveiled and demonstrated for the first time by Kurt Bonnici, product and technology marketing manager at Nokia Australia.” But don't expect to hear anything more than the technical details, as swiftly after the announcement, Nokia's chief executive will go on stage for its keynote speech at Nokia Connection.
All additional business details about the mysterious Nokia handset will be given later on. But we expect to see more than just one device as the agenda for the event also includes a speech by Nokia's executive VP for Mobile Phones, Mary McDowell, who will elaborate on “the global launch of brand new mobile devices and related services.” Can we expect a Windows Phone that early? Stephen Elop has pointed out that a Nokia-branded WP device is on track for release this holiday season, so even if something gets announced it will probably take quite a while to reach the end user. What are your expectations about this “market disrupting device”? Feel free to share in the comments below.
