Nokia organizes October 22 event, possible Lumia 1520, Sirius launch
Nokia is holding an event on October 22, which is expected to be the launch of the six-inch <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294082==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/09/nokia.lumia.1520.gets.new.photo.leak.ahead.of.laun ch/" rel='nofollow'>Lumia 1520</a> and possibly the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294083==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/13/nokia.tablet.to.weigh.13.pounds.measure.035.inches .thick/" rel='nofollow'>'Sirius' tablet</a> as well. The event itself is believed to have been delayed from a late-September launch, though it is reported that the original plans were pushed back due to the announced <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294084==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/03/microsoft.makes.big.step.into.mobile.with.nokia.bu y/" rel='nofollow'>acquisition by Microsoft</a>. <br />
<br />
The original plan would have seen Nokia revealing new devices, including a phablet at the end of September, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294080==http://news.yahoo.com/nokia-delays-phablet-launch-microsoft-deal-source-225642560--finance.html" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Reuters</em>, but its sources claim the deal postponed its launch plans marginally. The deal, said to be worth around $7.2 billion, was announced on September 3, with Microsoft and Nokia hoping to close the deal by the first quarter of 2014. <br />
<br />
The event teaser, posted on the Nokia <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294081==https://twitter.com/nokia/status/379959058712637441" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Twitter</a> feed, offers the hashtags #blazing, #stories, and #innovationreinvented, three tags which do not at first glance give any clues for what is being launched. The phablet mentioned by <em>Reuters</em> is most likely to represent the Lumia 1520, which is said to have Windows Phone 8 GDR3 onboard, a 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and microSD card support. The Sirius device, a 10.1-inch tablet with a 1080p display, may also make an appearance, complete with a 6.7-megapixel camera, a quad-core processor, and Windows RT installed.

I take it they won't be announcing that Android phone they'd been working on.
