Nokia to announce its next big thing on May 14th in London

Nokia to announce its next big thing on May 14th in London
Nokia has started sending out media invites to its next event, which is scheduled for May 14th in London. The company is teasing the event pretty simply by saying that "The Nokia Lumia story continues". Obviously, there is no word on what exactly will be shown off, but there could be more than you might expect.

It seems fair to assume that we'll get information on the Lumia 928 as well as the Catwalk, but the event is scheduled to take place from 10AM to 4PM, so there is plenty of time for other goodies to be shown off from other Windows Phone devices to possible Windows tablets that are rumored to be in the works. 

We may get a better idea of what to expect as we get closer to the date, but worst case we'll find out what Nokia has in store in just under 3 weeks. It is interesting that Nokia scheduled the event for the day before Google I/O starts. That doesn't seem like an accident.

Last "next best thing" event from another company was a huge disappointment. I'm not falling for that again.

I dunno...Nokia spends a lot of money in R&D, and they attract top tier engineers. I don't necessarily expect to see new inventions, but I do look forward to seeing what cool stuff they've been able to incorporate into the upcoming Lumias.

I agree with the Mics, but OIS is something that have been on DSLRs since the 90s, nokia is just the first to have it on a phone, and low light performance is a consequence of many factors (Aperture, OIS, Shutter speed...), NOT a technology by Nokia, Super sensitivity is a Synaptics technology, and Wireless charging has been there for a while (Remember the Palm Pre??)

Everything, has been pretty much there. But the fact that Nokia improvised it for smartphone purpose is a neat feat! That is why they are steps ahead of the competition in hardware innovation (i don't mean processors and stuff) terms.

1) I did not say that Nokia invented all this, I just said that Nokia had used it already in 2012. 2) the OIS in DSLRs is different from OIS in the Lumia 920.

Come to think of it, all those innovations didn't come scattered in multiple devices... Everything came with the 920. That's something to be proud of.

“HAAC” Rich Recording Was first in Nokia 808 PureView, but yes all this technology is in Lumia 920.

I think you are addicted to thumb down (red thumb you name it) either that or you just stupid. This post is completely unnecessary, the first post is something I would expect for someone very dumb. So... I'm just hoping you are addicted to thumb downs. Won't let you down and giving a great red thumb.
