Amid all the excitement surrounding the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the insufferable ‘iPhone 5’ speculation and the intrigue of BlackBerry’s Wake Up campaign, Nokia has been quietly preparing to launch the new Lumia 900 and 610 models.
The Finnish phone giant will be unveiling these two devices in Sydney next Thursday (17 May 2012), though it is unlikely that this ‘media preview’ will include pricing and carrier availability, based on Nokia’s past form.
Current.com.au recalls the ‘media preview’ of the Nokia N9 MeeGo smartphone, in which one rival hack asked, “Will Nokia ever hold a normal press conference with dates and prices?”.
Current.com.au will be there to cover all the news from this launch – check back throughout the week ahead for any updates.
Nokia's new Lumia 900, which runs Windows Phone 7, will be on show next week.
Also being previewed is the Nokia Lumia 610.
This story has been updated to reflect the following: The Nokia Lumia 900 runs Windows Phone 7, not Windows Mobile.
