Rumours: Nokia Lumia WP8 for Verizon due September 5th? Slates incoming?

There’s been plenty of rumours flying around that I haven’t got to yet.

First up

Anywhoo, insideris reckons that Nokia may be launching their WP8 device as soon as September. They say that back in March they were tipped off anonymously about the Verizon Lumia WP8 handset appearing September 5th. But how could it be if WP8 was to be released in Q4?

They’re trying to connect the dots that due to today’s WP8 launch and Nokia World being rescheduled early, there’s a possibility that Nokia may be, the most unlikely thing you’ll hear combined in a sentence, ahead of schedule.

Cheers  BrownFinn for the tip!


Slates are coming. Not tablets as such just large screened phones. I don’t know how large but I’m expecting something like the Galaxy Note (5.3″) if we’re calling this a slate.

Remember, Nokia was said to be bringing some ‘hybrid’ device. Something between a phone and tablet.

Someone called Matthew Thornton seems to believe this device will have PureView. I don’t know if he is just rattling off the rumoured specs or if he knows something. They’re pretty much right on the expected WP8 specs (though they were much rumoured, public info too).

In 2013, Nokia are supposedly launching a thin QWERTY WP8
