The most credible hint yet that next month will see the release of Nokia's next hardware flagships has surfaced today.
Nokia's Twitter account on Tuesday tweeted a picture of two men sand skiing with the text "#blazing #stories #innovationreinvented" and a message that more will be revealed on 22 October.
The date chimes with reports earlier today that the launch of a Nokia phablet, originally scheduled for the end of September — when Nokia traditionally does hardware launches, previously timed to coincide with its Nokia World event — had been delayed until late October.
Rumours have also suggested the event will see the debut of a Nokia RT tablet codenamed Sirius alongside a six-inch phablet which is expected to bear the name Lumia 1520.
The event was reportedly delayed following the €5.4bn acquisition of Nokia's devices and services unit by Microsoft earlier this month, and may have been moved so as not to clash with the launch of Microsoft's second-generation Surface tablets in late September.
