They say history repeats itself, and in the coming weeks and months in particular we will all find out how true that is. Nokia, a company which went from a simple goods supplier of the Finnish Army, to the most dominant mobile phone company in the world may just come full circle.
Nokia showing off Windows Phones isn’t anything new, after all we have already had a glimpse at the Sea Ray, a Nokia N9 which simply runs on Windows Phone. But if you are to believe Stephen Elop’s ignorance when he asked everyone to put away their cameras before he showed it, it was not an official unveiling.
Well, that all changes soon, the good people over at Techie-Buzz have found an invitation for a joint Nokia-Microsoft party on August 17th. Reports also state that this event will be held at GamesCon in Cologne, Germany.
Looks like all of the hard work on Nokia’s part has come down to this, all of the flip flopping, double backing and confusion. The fruition of a plan beginning with a burning platform, and the future of a company has come down to this. Soon we will see if Microsoft really is the future of Nokia.
