Nokia US posts up video teaser, possibly for Lumia Icon

Information and images of the Nokia Lumia Icon have been leaking on the Internet for months, but so far the folks in Finland have yet to make an official announcement on what may be their final Windows Phone device. Today, the company's U.S. branch posted a YouTube video teaser that may finally signal the end of their silence.

The brief 15 second clip displays a simple phrase, "Have you heard what's coming?" while the sound of a rather loud car engine is heard in the background. The engine noise continues as the phrase changes to "See and hear what you've been missing" before ending on the Nokia and Windows Phone logos. It suggests that the device will have a strong audio component.

The clip doesn't even offer a date for whatever they are planning to announce. However, the chances are extremely good that it will be the official reveal of the Nokia Lumia Icon, which is supposed to be an exclusive for Verizon Wireless in the U.S. The smartphone is rumored to have a 5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and a 20 megapixel PureView rear camera.

How many times have we had leaks and teasers for the icon already while saying "oh, its rumored to be only next week!". First it was early November, then Black Friday, then Christmas, then Early Jan, then Late Jan, then Early Feb, now Valentine's day.

Verizon doesn't care about this phone. They are going to throw it out in the slowest part of the season, watch it fail, and blame Windows Phone for it, only to go back to promoting Droids.

So we hear a car engine and that suggests a strong audio component? As opposed to suggesting, I dunno, a car. To me this is more likely to suggest a tie-in with another car manufacturer to use HERE Maps and have some integration with WP phones.

Some more excitement from the Windows Phone ecosystem would help. Awareness and buzz are not at the peak these days.

I agree, though the whole smartphone market seems to be in a bit of a rut. I don't have many friends who "can't wait" for the next phone anymore. Most are pretty content with what they have.

Seriously, won't be too long until we see the new 8.1 devices without the old school 3 physical buttons at the bottom and new Microsoft/Nokia branding post acquisition.

I still have an old Titan II running 7.8 until the new 8.1 hardware is released. Maybe this fall?

I think I read that new devices could hit the market in May or June, if the big WP8.1 reveal is at build in April, then this sounds right.

Telstra advised me that I can End my Contract with them on my Lumia 920 without a cancellation fee
And so I might wait for this to be released and drop my Contract

Telstra allowed me to cancel my contract with my fault ridden ride with 3 x 920's... Happily on my 1020, but will always curse myself when something newer comes out!!!


I got away from it because they dropped the insurance on it , and the L920 didn't have "Stay Connected" attached to it ..

But thinking to get Windows Phone 9 ( If its ever going to be released lol )
