Nokia to announce a "market disrupting device" on June 21st

Nokia to announce a
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.

Nokia has held firm on it being late in the year before they have Windows branded devices, and 2012 before the devices start really rolling. Still, they should have SOMETHING to get people talking, right?

i cant remember when they came out with a phone that was hardware wise the best on the market. They have been on par with what is already out and usually well after htc, motorola, lg, and samsung.

The better chance for NOKIA to stop loosing market share is Meego (which has ANDROID compatibility), not W8.

Let's hope that NOKIA will come with a WP&(8) devices as soon as possible. This is the best OS by far on the market and with the help of the finns, it will grow market share. PS: Nokia'd better stay really far far away from Android if they want to be accepted seriously.

No, lets not hope that... I had to suffer through M$ monopoly on my desktop for years, I don't want M$ on my mobile devices, no thanks. Nokia, don't give up on Megoo, that's your only chance of selling me a device anyway. Symbian is hell and Microsoft is trying to copy Steve Jobs, I don't need little dictators in my phones and tablets telling me what I can't do, and I don't want to waste a lot of time jailbraking/rooting etc after every little software patch Apple or M$ pop out. Linux rocks, no matter if they call it android or megoo. I'll have one as soon as you come back down to reality, Nokia. Make a range of 4 good phones and offer each with W7/W8, Megoo, and Android, then see what sticks... Don't get under the wheels of M$' drive and hopes to make up for their horrible blunders on Nokia's back...

What we already know is that Nokia will finally present the N9 Meego running phone with a Carl Zeiss 12MP camera. Too many questions about meego, we'll have more information shortly... this meego story has been taking forever... Nokia it's high time to wake up and smell the coffee!! PS : Hope they'll have one or some Nokia Windows phone to show as well... 6 days to go ... If they can built a Nokia WP with mango, 4'' high res CBD screen and the Carl zeiss 12 MP or more (as on the N8), I'm in and am ready to wait until end of this year. Personally, I won't buy a smartphone if it has a bad camera. It must be as good as the N86, N8... or better.

A Nokia tablet?

Well, WP7 on Nokia is not expected until the end of 2011 or beginning of 2012, so I doubt it will be that... A Meego device would be kind of cool, like the N9 or the briefly bantered-about N950 design, but would not be much of a game-changer (especially after Elop's comment about Meego being an "oh sh** moment" as of late). A Nokia tablet... with what OS? It won't be Meego or WP7... I don't think it will be a tablet. It could end up being a really freakin' wild Symbian Anna super-phone, but I think that trick is getting old... it would tick off a lot of people. What ever it is, it will probably be really cool to a few of us, but will not even make a dent in the market at all...
