Nokia might have agreed in principle to sell its phone business to Microsoft, but it is working to pump out a few devices under its iconic brand name. The company has an event scheduled on October 22nd in Abu Dhabi where it is expected to unveil as many as six new devices. A Windows RT powered Nokia tablet and a Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia phablet are already expected to be announced at that event. Nokia might also be working on a low end Lumia smartphone that’s focused on music. The device may internally be known as Nokia “Glee.”
Infamous Twitter leak maestro @evleaks was first to break word about the Nokia Glee. The tweet was quoted by expanded upon by a well known journalist, who added that the Glee is actually a low end Lumia smartphone that’s music centric. Nothing else is known about this device right now, so we can’t just conjure specifications and features out of thin air. The interesting thing to note is the fact that this smartphone is supposed to be music centric. Is Nokia about to launch a new music service, or is it going to unveil something that revamps the music experience on its line of Lumia devices? Obviously there’s no saying if the company will reveal anything about it on October 22nd, but its likely that we’ll hear more rumors about this device in the near future.
