Nokia CONFIRMS October 22nd Launch Event in Abu Dhabi

Nokia tweeted this message earlier this morning confirming they will be hosting a launch event. Scheduled for October 22nd, this supports the tweet that appeared last week with the save-the-date announcement with a desert theme.

The event is set in Abu Dhabi after it was believed that the company would host an event at the end of this week following their corporate parent Microsoft’s new Surface Tablet presentation.
