Nokia shuts down main store in Helsinki for September re-launch—something big planned
The main Nokia store in Helsinki, Finland has temporarily closed for renovations and is now emblazoned with big signs noting that “Something Amazing is Coming…7.9.2012” (that’s September 7th, for our American friends).
What makes that date interesting of course is it is directly after Nokia World—Nokia’s annual event where they announce all of their big products (well, most—the Lumia 900 wasn’t announced until CES). This year, the big expectation is that Nokia will of course show off their new Windows Phone 8 devices including a much speculated PureView camera phone with WP8. In addition, there are rumors of a Nokia tablet in the works too running Windows 8.
Could all of this just be coincidence? We don’t think so but it still doesn’t really answer what the store has to do with it nor why it’s going to take a month and a half to renovate. Still, it looks like Nokia has some tricks up their sleeves (actually, when does Nokia not have a trick up their sleeve?).
Now for the other cool part—if you scan the QR code below, the same one that is slapped on the Nokia store, you’ll be taken to a Nokia website. That site will ask for permission to your SkyDrive and form there you can add a photo to have Nokia “graffiti” done to it. You can see our result above—kind of cool, eh?
