What is Nokia up to?


The last time we heard from Nokia, it was using social media to tease a November 17th event, which would reveal to the world "how the Nokia story continues". There have been a lot of rumors that we are about to witness the announcement of an Android-toting Nokia smartphone, but this is not really possible, at least for the time being, due to the Microsoft deal forbidding Nokia to build smartphones until 2016.

Today, the company took to Facebook again, with yet another cryptic message. It's a picture of a device that looks like a set-top box, or perhaps a Mac mini-type of PC, with a scarce text explanation, informing us that Nokia is "up to something" and the date November 18th scribed above it.

So, we guess tomorrow is the big day, but it seems Nokia is going to stay away from the mobile business for now. What do you guys think this is? An Android TV set-top box? A super-powerful mini PC? What's in the b-o-o-x?

Someone cut the penis of stephen elope and put it in a black box. Nokia hired an event management team saying they have a new product to show off on 18th november. To be continued...

Nokia is trolling us. You open the box and boom, a shiny new NoPhone.

Considering their wireless business, it could also be a router + added features.

I think its the last Smartphone Nokia will ever produce... Since the brand itself has such high value. i think this is gonna be expensive. Yes they said that they are no longer making smartphones. who knows a last request before they leave the smartphone industry.

nah, if that's so, their tag line is contradicting if you speculation is true, probably a tablet, since nokia is not allowed to make a smartphone under its name, or they will introduce jolla smartphone, but this is just me exaggerating. :D
