Second look at image on Nokia site suggests a QWERTY equipped Asha model will be announced on Wednesday
Earlier today, we told you about an an announcement scheduled by Nokia for Wednesday morning, confirmed by Nokia's own website. We passed along an image from the site which displayed pieces of a yellow handset with rounded corners and a QWERTY keyboard. With the rounded corner not resembling any Lumia model, and the Nokia employee involved in the post announcement Q&A working on the Mobile Phones team rather than the Lumia group, it would seem that the announcement tomorrow could be for the Nokia Asha line. The placement of the arrow with the adjacent "Z" as appears in the picture is a layout used before on earlier Asha models like the Nokia Asha 302.
 
With the announcement set for 7am GMT, it would seem that whatever is being introduced is aimed at the European and/or Asian market. A QWERTY equipped featurephone could help Nokia recapture some lost market share overseas and return to the black in the second quarter. For the first quarter, Nokia recently reported an operating loss of $196 million.
