Microsoft's Nokia unit teases ... something on Vine

Now that Nokia's smartphone unit is in the hands of Microsoft, the division is wasting no time in offering a teaser for ... something. Today, the Nokia Vine account, which is now in Microsoft's control, has posted up a new and quick video that is definitely a head scratcher.

The clip has a old, and blue, Nokia feature phone being moved and starting a sequence that involves many more classic Nokia blue phones falling down in a row like dominoes. At the end of the clip, we see the last phone fall and hit a switch that controls a container with a plastic water bottle. That container then moves and starts up something on a blue typewriter; all of this happens inside a yellow room with yellow ramps for the phones.

What does all this mean? Microsoft's Vine's message says that "something epic approaches .... More Soon". It also has the hashtag "#MoreColorful." But what could Microsoft have in mind? The Vine clip does say we will get more information "soon" so at the moment all we can do is sit and wait for the message that involves phones, water bottles, typewriters and the colors blue and yellow to become clear.

MoreColorful...how much more colorful can they get.

Ahh, the LEDS :) semi-transparent cases that change from blue to red. Probably nothing new there, but for the Lumia it would be.

I'm guessing after the Windows Phone 8.1 update is coming email I got a few days ago, they're going to make a big fuss over the colourful background images you can now put on your phone's start screen. Oh the joys to be had.

No LEDs yet? Should be standard in every phone and personally, will not buy a device without it.

Background images on tiles have already been announced dont think that would be it. Guess just have to wait :)

Yeah Nokia really need to start putting multi-colour LEDS in their Phones.

The Glance Screen is all very well, but tiny static icons aren't the most noticeable of things.

If you could customize the LED colours to Contacts/Apps, that would be great.

Maybe a super cheap low-res phone running WP? Don't see why they can't do an Aisha-like WP device now that they own the infrastructure.

Fingers crossed this means we might get another cyan Lumia this year...

Still no idea why they dropped it with WP8 (other than a couple of devices with cyan covers).

The have phones in the picture...
Surface tablets are limited in color...
They will introduce surface phones that have different colors.

Makes sense with the Surface announcement coming soon, and the rumour they have more up their sleeve than a mini...
