    Nokia Delays Publicity for New Device
    By John D. Stoll

    Nokia Corp. is pushing back the publicity launch of its first smart device since agreeing to sell its handset business to Microsoft Corp.MSFT -0.69%, but the company still plans to start selling the phones as initially scheduled, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The new smartphone is expected to be sold in the Lumia line and run Microsoft Windows software.

    The company declined to comment on the new product or timing of its launch on Tuesday.

    The new smartphone will likely be bigger in dimensions than other devices in the current lineup and will carry camera technology developed by NokiaNOK1V.HE -1.22%.

    Nokia had been planning to give the public its first glimpse of the new phone in September, but now the event is going to be scheduled for October, these people said.

    This launch represents an important milestone for Nokia following the announcement that Microsoft will purchase Nokia’s handset business for more than $7 billion.
    I wonder if this means the November launch will be delayed also. Let's hope not.

    Nokia is just delaying the launch date, not the release date. Makes a lot more sense to officially announce a device and release it 2 weeks later than 2 months later (like the 920). Nokia can't afford to make those mistakes again.

    Agreed. This was a HUGE agitation for me when I waited on the Lumia 920.

    I hope they add a stylist and a microUSB 3.0. I know, do you really need it? No, but do I want it on the 1520, yes.

    If MS don't officially "debrand" Nokia 'til the contract comes into effect in 2014, do we think this be the last branded Nokia Lumia?

    Can't see how you'd fit a hairdresser onto a phone even this size to be honest..

    Everybody is using those announcement, release date and launch date mixed. Be it The Verge, Engadget other blogs.

    But yeah, the availability hasn't changed with the delay of the announcement in any of these rumors.

    Yep, however you want to phrase it, you can't get your hands on the phone from a retail outlet until Nov. 8th
