Nokia's "Something Amazing" for September 7th is a disappointment
posted by Alan F. / Jul 28, 2012, 6:56 PM
As you can imagine, speculation ran amok with talk of a Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia Lumia model being introduced September 7th, or that a Windows Phone flavored Nokia 808 PureView model was coming. The September 7th date is the first day after Nokia World closes, so it would make sense for this all to be related to a major product announcement.
The truth is far less exciting. All Things D says that the whole campaign is merely being done to promote the remodeling of a Nokia Store. This makes the comment about amazing things at "your new Nokia Store" a great example of foreshadowing.

well actually i thought it was a remodeled store... usually they do it something like that.. but since you make news that they are making something else and it is close happening after the nokia world i change my mind.. but then again my first thought was right...

"(Hopefully you are aware how Europeans write dates in order of year, date and month, and if you didn't know, know you do)" uh, if it were today's date, it should be 28.7.2012. They don't put the year first. Like you couldn't tell by the banner, sheesh. And also, it is "now you do" not "know you do."

Except 7.9.2012 can be viewed, in America, as July 9th, 2012.

hahaha, that's the problem with tech blogs that are easily carried away by speculations. (whistling...)

OMG! Nokia World is still more than a month away and I'm sure they would be revealing some of their plans by way of WP8 devices during the affair! The WP8 SDK is scheduled to be released anytime soon so I'm sure Nokia would already have some idea what they're going to do about the new OS' devices come Nokia World in September!

So a store in one location in one city in Finland puts up a sign saying it's being closed for renovation and that something amazing will appear when it re-opens. Then someone takes a picture of the sign, and next, it is hyped beyond belief. Then the store owner says "wtf? We're just re-opening the store?" and the hypers say we should be disappointed? Eh? Had Nokia been putting up banners on their web pages, through their partners, putting out ads etc, then sure we would be disappointed if nothing appeared. Now we're just disappointed media is hyping something up without reason.

Gosh what could it be? Profits? Marketshare thats above single digits again? Ummmm, stock prices above junk? A clear strategy to regain market share that doesnt involve being a mere front for ms? God it could be so many things. I just dont buy the store re-modelling story. lol
