Another Nokia teaser for Monday, June 18th pops up

After posting two teaser images late on Friday, Nokia's U.S. Facebook page just posted up yet another image this morning that teases some kind of special event that's happening on Monday, June 18th. This time the image has the date along with an image of three circles that look something like targets that are intersecting each other against against a blue background.

As we have mentioned before, these teasers have a date that just happened to be the same day that Microsoft is holding a mysterious press event in Los Angeles. Rumors are flying that the event will feature the introduction of some kind of Windows RT-based tablet device. However, other rumors suggest it could be Nokia's launch of its 41 megapixel PureView camera for the US market. Neither Microsoft nor Nokia has officially announced if the press event and these Facebook teaser images are linked in some way.

We will be keeping an eye out for any more teaser image from Nokia's Facebook page this weekend to see if we can get any more hints about what June 18th really means. We are also scheduled to attend Microsoft's press event in Los Angeles and will bring you the information from that event on Monday. It promises to be a very interesting week, for both Microsoft and Nokia.

It's definitely the Nokia 808 Pureview (and not a Lumia). They wont to get this thing released in the UK before their Lumia version

I wonder what they hope to achieve releasing a phone running a dead OS, especially as its unlikely to be on a major carrier which means its unlikely to get any major sales. Wouldn't it make more sense to get the 900 on other carriers, like Samsung is doing with the latest galaxy?

Well, US aside, the 900 is going on more carriers, in other parts of the world that is. They have that AT&T exclusive deal which we don't know for how long and Nokia has also officially stated that they'll be making "exclusive" versions of the Lumia brand for the different carriers. So expect a updated Lumia 9xx model for Verizon or Sprint and so on. I could see Verizon getting the first Lumia WP8 device unless AT&T puts up a better offer again and snags more exclusivity. Only time will tell.

You can already buy a Lumia 900, SIM free of course, everywhere in Europe.
My first WP phone was a HD7 and since it died and I bought a Lumia 800 I miss the bigger screen; of course with WP8 devices around the corner I am not going to spend another Euro 600, I will just suffer a little bit longer and see what WP8 will offer.

Lumia 808!

Its got to be the Lumia 808 running WP8 and 808 State are going to play us a tune at launch. Not really that difficult to guess. Now do I get a free one if I guessed right???

It won't be called the Lumia 808. The Lumia name was slapped on sort of as a marketing term. Nokia phones are typically referred to just by their model numbers, and repeating numbers for two different phones simply wouldn't make sense.
