Nokia teases October 22 launch event; surely the Lumia 1520?

Nokia teases October 22 launch event; surely the Lumia 1520?Earlier today we reported on Nokia having decided to postpone its Lumia 1520 phablet launch event that was scheduled for the end of the month in New York, and now the replacement date has been revealed: October 22.

Nokia has just Tweeted a teaser for an event on October 22, complete with the hashtag #innovationreinvented, and while no specific device is mentioned, the Lumia 1520 is the obvious favourite.

The image itself (which also mentions the tags #blazing and #stories) is a bit of a head-scratcher. It features two cross-country skiiers in a desert, one walking up a dune in the background, and a larger skiier in the foreground going downhill.

The size difference between the foreground and background could be a hint of the larger screen of a phablet (the Lumia 1520 is expected to come with a 6in full HD display), while the setting and #blazing tag could be a hint that Nokia has switched to warmer climes for its rescheduled event.

The accompanying text says only “at Nokia, we never stop innovating. More to share on October 22”.

with the recent trend for teasers not having anything to do with the product, and for 'innovation' to be woefully misused. it would be nice if this event launched something different to the expected 1520 - perhaps a ruggedised device combining mobile and nokia's mapping, sporttracker and imaging.

your comment about the size difference, Martin, reminds me of father ted "no Dougal, these cows are small - those cows are very far away"
