Harmattan to be unveiled tomorrow?
Tomorrow, in Singapore, Nokia Connection will “unveil the next chapter”, with presentations by Stephen Elop (CEO), Mary McDowell (EVP of “mobile phones”), Marco Argenti (SVP, “developer & marketplace”) and Marko Ahtisaari (SVP, “design”). Simultaneously, a number of invites have been sent out to Nokia events around the world; with the one in Australia gathering most of the attention. ITWire describes their invite: “Nokia is set to take the wraps off its “newest, soon-to-be-named” device, with a live on-site demo of the product and then the live broadcast of Nokia CEO Stephen Elop’s Nokia keynote in Singapore on June 21. With a real Nokia event invitation in my inbox that’s thin on details yet, leaving the mind to conjure up a universe of speculative possibility, Nokia’s June 21 announcement promises a new market disruptor.” MeeGo fits into Elop's new strategy under the “Future Disruptions” banner, so the use of the word “disruptive” to describe the new device favours the suggestion that this will (finally) see the wraps being taken off Harmattan and one or both of the rumoured devices (the older, keyboarded model for “developers” and the sleeker, tightly controlled “consumer” device – of which very little is known, or even suspected).
