Nokia Innovation to Attend Nokia’s MORE Event in San Francisco #MORELUMIA
With just one day to go, the Microsoft Build conference is set to kick off in San Francisco, where they will announce Windows Phone 8.1 along with a number of other Microsoft products. The conference was sold out in just over 24 hours and unfortunately the NI team won’t be making an appearance there, but that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on all the fun! As we all know, Nokia also has an event planned for April 2nd later in the day, where they are expected to make a few announcements of their own… And in what I describe as a stroke of awesomeness, I, Derrek Leigh, have been selected to attend!
What does that mean, you ask? Well obviously it means that I will have firsthand coverage of the event. I’ll be there tweeting, taking photos, hopefully catching some videos/demos, and most importantly networking (this is my dream job, after all!). It’s quite fortunate that as the only NI member on the West Coast, I live only 60 miles (approx. 95km) from SF, which is a hop, skip and a jump from the sleepy town of Santa Cruz.
As for what Nokia has planned to announce we can only guess by the title that we’re to expect… more Lumias! This will likely come in the form of the Lumia 630/635 “Moneypenny” (seen above), and hopefully the Lumia 930 “Martini” (maybe, maybe not). Any other Lumias we may have in the rumor mill will be absent from this event.
The Lumia 630 is expected to have the following specs:
- 4.5 inch touch screen
- 854×480 resolution
- Virtual Windows Phone navigation keys
- Size: 129.5 x 66.7mm.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1GB RAM
- Dual SIM (variant)
As for the Lumia 930, not much is known about the device, but we expect it to be an international version of the recently released Lumia Icon. If that’s the case, it will likely have a different design than the boxy Verizon flagship while toting the same specs: 20MP Pureview camera, 5inch 1080p touch screen, and 4 microphones for superb audio capture.
In addition to the April 2nd event, Nokia also has a little adventure planned out for the attendees, and I’ll likely tag along for that too. If you wanna follow me as I brave my first ever Nokia event, feel free to follow me on Twitter (@derrekleigh) as I’ll probably be tweeting up a storm! I’ll do my best to report back on what’s happening as it happens! Also make sure to follow @NokiaInnovation for more in-depth posts of tomorrows announcements! Doors open at 4pm (PST) and things are expected to get started at 5pm, so set your clocks accordingly!
I hope you’re as stoked as I am for tomorrow! Stay tuned!
