Nokia Teaser Video telling us things are about to change on the 5th September

We are ever so close to the 5th of September where it’s possible Nokia and Microsoft are planning to reveal all about Windows Phone 8. We still have much to learn about the next version of Windows Phone such as possible consumer features for the OS that include Xbox Live and music improvements, as well as anything else Microsoft may still have hidden up their sleeves.

While there is still much to learn about Windows Phone 8, a recent video release only adds to the mystery of what's in store for September 5th.

The video has a very carefree cyclist riding through a shipyard looking directly at the camera. We have no idea why shes making a wave sign whilst cycling along, what does it all mean? We’re certainly hoping that Things are about to change on the 5th. With rumours of Nokia Windows 8 tablets and the tantalising prospect of Pureview technology who knows what we could see?

We love being teased, but do you? Tell us how you feel… Go on, share with us…

Jnbs says:

I want to know!! I bet is a Pureview Phone!!! I can't wait!!

Odd-i-See says:

Maybe the vid was shot using PureView?

This was my exact first thought. Pretty much confirmed. Woo!

scottaii says:

Anyone else feel like Making a spoof video where she crashes into something? ;)

Lol if u do send me a link to it :P

WinPhanKyle says:

The suspense is killing me!

aubreyq says:

Nokia sure knows how to do marketing, don't they? So good that they're using Windows Phone.

Sergio0694 says:

There's just one thing I can't stand: Nokia has pureview, gorilla glass, a great design, dedicated apps, now it will also get multi core CPU, HD AMOLED ClearBlack screens... So why the hell do they still use PenTile AMOLED screens?!
Why don't they get AMOLED+ screens with RGB matrix?
I'm never gonna buy a pentile screen, ugh...
I'll go for HTC with its Super LCD 2 HD screen :)

Jnbs says:

I thought that the Lumia 900's screen was/is not pentile (even thought its Clearblack AMOLED). Am I wrong?

J4rrod says:

No, you're right actually

aubreyq says:

"I'm never gonna buy a pentile screen." Said no one who isn't a geek/nerd. Even then, some geeks/nerds probably don't care about it.

dtboos says:

Like Jnbs said, the Lumia's weren't pentile, and I doubt the new ones will be either (at least not the high end ones).

Sergio0694 says:

I've used a Lumia 800, and the screen had that typical "pixellated" effect of the pentile screens, if you look carefully. I have an old LG Optimus 7, which has an average LCD RGB screen, and even if the image has low contrast and poor colors, it is more detailed and the edges of the tiles and the letters are sharper. Trust me, there's a HUGE difference between pentile and RGB screens. That said, the Lumia 800 remains a great phone, btw :)

Nataku4ca says:

Hi Sergio0694
just fyi, only the 800 is using pentile as far as i know, the 900 isn't
 
i have 800 too, but it doesn't bother me so...

pr0phecy says:

Nokia Wave? Featuring PureView tech? :)

restlessdan says:

I would agree with that right kind of clues are there.

inteller says:

before shot video with current Lumia 900.  Expect another video from her shooting stabilized PureView 1080p video.

Vidjda says:

+1 with maybe noise reduction recording

erichon99 says:

that's what I'm hoping....the next video will be the same bicycle run in the shipyard but the quality will be sharper and stabilized....with sound.  She'll say "Told you so"

Varsi9 says:

It is that simple, that has to be it.

Arun3 says:

Pure view..... is possible.. The rest of the video could zoom out to a longer distance showcasing the technology.. And speaking of waves, this is a Nokia official photo taken using Pureview..

Oli Gill says:

Usually I like Nokias marketing but im getting a serious "Don't drink and drive" campaign vibe from that teaser!

Maybe I have just spent too long on the internet...it's tarnished me lol

gtbuzz says:

Ditto. I don't know why but there was something in the back of my mind telling me she was gonna ride that bike straight into the side of a truck or something.

mcmaui says:

Haha! Exactly my thought!

pallentx says:

haha, yes, I kept waiting for her to slam into the back of a bus or someting.

RayWP7 says:

Or a sasquatch O.o

Superscythe says:

Hahaha, great timing!

gmantione says:

Well then it would be a jack links commercial =P

skrundarlow says:

Read some interesting theories at wmpoweruser comments. Wavy motion (and the fact that they're on bikes) could be hinting at camera stability enhancements, the 'telescope' she makes with her hand could be hinting at pureview, and the final downwards motion at enhanced low-light performance.

Vidjda says:

I definitely agree and can't wait for them to show new stuff

Forget the phone, I want that girl riding the bike...

IamDefiler says:

She's a cuttie...

Viipottaja says:

Notice how the seat of the bike is completely under her skirt and how happy she looks ? I bet there is some amazing haptic feedback/vibrations going on there! :P

clmbngbkng says:

Wow, we really went there on the comments?

Hey look, we're men...we got a lot of testosterone flowing through us, we have to vent every now and again lol.

iqbalsn says:

Forget the phone, gimme a surface like tablet !

ejlee072006 says:

My lumia 900 al of a sudden started freezing yesterday... I think that's a sign to get me a wp8... Hahahah

pbroy says:

I think the girl might be deaf. She's using her hands to communicate. Nokia phones with speech to text conversion so deaf and silent people can use cell phones. Look for it people!

theefman says:

Guess this is just like the "beta test is over" campaign, only it wasn't. Lets hope they live up to their own hype this time.

Beat me to it! I'll never be able to take Nokia serious again. Lumia 900 owners and WP7 users are the true beta testers.

JamesDax3 says:

Troll harder.

laserfloyd says:

Nokia Wave? Or now that you've seen this in 720p, wait till you see it again in 1080p shot with a pureview WP8?  Hmmm, damn these teases. :P

renisans says:

My hopes and excitement are up. Man, I hope for a gamechanger...something that'll make the other fanboys prick up their ears

vijax21 says:

rather concerned about the lady in the vdo... :D didnt she ram in something

carltone65 says:

I think that there is some else riding with her......maybe her boyfriend or something, because it looks like she is talking to someone and at the end she tells them she loves them.....I think the person who she is talking to is riding as well and he/she has the new nokia phone recording the video....so if the person is riding and recording with one hand and she riding as well...there has to be really good stability enhancements going on for the video to look that good...or else the video would be all over the place...won't it? 12 pureview with stability enhancements maybe?
 

kinaton says:

Suprised the battery lasted that long :-D

TheDoros says:

This would be amazing. I can't wait. 

I'm excited for WP8, but not anything from Nokia. After being a beta tester (aka Lumia 900 owner), I'm done with them. But HTC on the other hand, I can't wait to see what they come up with. Always had great, reliable phones when I bought HTC.

Big Supes says:

I guess we all act out of personal experience, but I for one, won't be going back to HTC after my HD7. The touch screen is atrocious.

True. I've never had problems with any HTC phone I've had. But this 900 is horrible. Constant freezes & reboots, worst camera I've had on a phone since my old pay as you go flip phone, and the list goes on!

aubreyq says:

Did you apply the update yet?

Bouncin Back says:

My HD7 is just fine. Faulty phones are faulty phones no matter who makes them.

Big Supes says:

Gimme that Nokia goodness. . . NOW! Pureview and Nokia tablet?

kinaton says:

Maybe they are fixing all the bugs lol

Also if you're going to view the vid on your phone, watch the one at wmpoweruser, the one here is so low quality you can't see jack shizz, lol.

NIST says:

Same video dude. No problems here. I was able to see jack shizz.

lippidp says:

Nokia is releasing a new bicycle?

zu2779 says:

Nokia will announce a new anti blur tech in their camera. im sure this has to do with that.  There will NOT be a pureview announced btw.

aubreyq says:

People sure have a hard-on about the PureView, don't they?

sinime says:

Anyone here know sign language? Looks like she is signing something with her hands.
 
Maybe it's for new features for the hearing impaired ;)

MastrMeatWad says:

It appears she is signing at the end of the video.  I can only make out a couple words however.

pbroy says:

She's saying Nokia stocks are going up and down. Then she says "I love you".. :D

ChanceW says:

There is probably something else to the video as well but the colours of the girl and the bike my be relevant to the colours of Nokia's new phones.

macastle says:

THIS SUCKS!!!! Can't wait till the 5th. MS & Nokia are about to do some serious a$$ kicking.

ne0cr0n says:

Maybe the wave, the moving camera and the guitar playing is a pointer to a rolling shutter effect free cam inside the new lumia phone ;)

zekerrific says:

Is this old? The date says May 9th 2012?

NIST says:

Day/month /year

Wyn6 says:

Rest of the world flips it as NIST wrote. 5/9/2012 is 5th of September, 2012.

bokchoy1 says:

Except in Canada, where America and "the rest of the world" collide. We poor Canadians are so confused, we even started using year/month/day. Although, most people have given up and will just write September 5, 2012 in full.

mrdeezus says:

Id like to see a Pureview upskirt on that chick, that would be sweet! lol

iSeeiSheep says:

I got the Lumia 900 and was aware of the risks. Anyone buying a single processed non NFC enabled device with minimum specs got what they paid for - I paid zero!

As for the "Beta Test" ads, that was a huge marketing error and it pissed me off. We were the freaking beta!!!

As for Nokia, I will remain loyal for one more round. Hopefully Lumia owners get the right to out of cycle phone upgrades with AT&T.

Going back to Apple is NOT on my to do list. They have grown too arrogant for my tastes.

U kno the silent advertising with music are the best

irspecere says:

Well, she's wearing a peach-ish outfit. New color?
And as far as shooting this with the cell phone camera, there is no rolling shutter issues in this teaser, so perhaps this has something to do with Purerview. Although all cell phone cameras use a rolling shutter, which leads to a "bending" of moving images. Is it possible that Pureview doesn't?

COME ON PEOPLE ITS A SCHWINN COMMERCIAL !!!! lol ;)

wpos8 says:

They still make schwinn? lol...

buhoymarmota says:

The video looks great!

MastrMeatWad says:

I would love too see some great new features baked into the os that I cannot get through ios, android. Signing in with facial features, thumbprint, more voice integration, integration with Xbox and Kinect.

I would like to see videos sent via text now, connect and send data, pics, videos to other phones by touch (like galaxy), cloud storage for music and upload your music cds and DVDs into zune-Xbox music and able to download to phone without cables (WiFi), smartglass baked into every wp, improved calendar-emails and dictate via voice, in fact everything done via voice (pipe dreams) and phone reads emails to you, and hd camera-video.

I think the things I would like the most is the xbox music service allowing you to upload-transfer your personal music and DVDs, link it through their market, and able to download anywhere onto the phone at anytime through data connection, wifi, without having to buy it since you own it. To be able to access my 400 music cds at any moment through my phone would be awesome

wpos8 says:

I can't wait for wp8 it strange has I don't give a crap of new iPhone 5 or 6 whatever stupid number. Or dont even care when android S3 came out. I feel more excited for wp8 coming. I guess it just the awesome UI and live tiles etc... Makes it a great OS

wpos8 says:

Who is she? She's cute hahahah the wave sign could be a tsunami of windows phone 8 coming out this fall. Hahahah

larspassic says:

Wave = new name for Metro?

kittshelby says:

does anyone else think that since the video is 21 seconds long, the camera is going to be a 21 MP Pureview????? clever tease right!

winbot says:

That "wave" and "down" sign is a clear indication that the new lumia will be water proof. Yellow will be a new color and we all know that yellow is a favourite amongst underwater swimming. Also she's on a boat dock.

winbot says:

Underwater pureview experience. This changes everything.

winbot says:

Underwater pureview experience. This changes everything.
EDIT: What the hell?.... double post?
 

ironnmetal says:

Ok, she's on a dock and does the water wave motion. An earlier comment linked to the released PureView photo entitled "Waves." I am going to go ahead and say that the two are linked and that this video is secretly referencing that photo. Thus, PureView for WP8 will be announced.

bokchoy1 says:

From the Youtube comments, someone mentioned phi being the 21st Greek letter and that the video is 21 seconds long. Coincidence?
