I asked “what about the touch screen cell phone that I’ve seen rumors about?” He said that no one had gotten it right yet. He said that even internally only a handful of people have seen the new device they’ll be announcing on Wednesday
‘Device’ he says. Does that mean its not a phone? It may be wishful thinking on my part but maybe it’s the announcement of the new Nokia Tablet. The one with 3G, hi-def camera and a Cortex A8 core on the Ti OMAP platform. Or is that just too small a deal? Are they going to announce something to go head to head with the iPhone? Are both the tablet and the new device one and the same thing. Is this the device that’s going to replace the E90 and see the tablet and phone products coming together for the first time? Somehow I doubt that. Fortunately I’m in the Barcelona timezone so I’ll be looking out for news as it breaks on Wednesday morning. Stay tuned.
Update: This Nokia countdown clock indicates that the announcement might be in the keynote tomorrow morning (0915 GMT+1)
