Nokia hints at QWERTY device ahead of announcement on 24th
Nokia is making an announcement for one or more new mobile phones on the 24th of April, according to a company blog <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283920==http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/04/22/whats-up-at-nokia/" rel='nofollow'>post</a>. The timing of the announcement, set at 7am Greenwich Mean Time, suggests it will be for a device destined for release primarily in Europe and Asia, with the accompanying image giving a few clues as to what it could be for. <br />
<br />
The image appears to show a pronounced curved corner that isn't typically associated with Lumia devices, a point compounded by the post telling of a Q&A session with Neil Broadley from the Mobile Phones team, rather than someone working just on the Lumia range. Part of a keyboard is visible, showing an arrow and what appears to be the letter Z. This has been shown before in earlier Asha devices, including the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283921==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/02/27/we.take.on.nokias.latest.asha.models/" rel='nofollow'>Asha 302</a>. <br />
<br />
A new feature-phone with QWERTY keyboard may help the phone producer rebound from its small <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283922==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/18/nokia.shows.positive.signs.with.lumia.sales.up.27. percent/" rel='nofollow'>first-quarter loss</a>. In the quarter, it managed to sell 61.9 million devices, 5.6 million were Lumias, and 400,000 were sold to customers based in the US.
