Nokia to launch a new handset on January 26th


Whoo! Looks like free turn-by-turn navigation wasn’t the only good news to come out of Nokia’s press announcement earlier today.

In a once-in-a-blue-moon event, the guys over at Pocket-Lint asked for details about when Nokia might be launching new hardware and actually managed to get an answer. According to Nokia UK managing director Mark Loughran, Nokia will be launching something new on January 26th – just one day before Apple launches their something new.

Alas, the date is all they could squeeze out of him. When the sentries PR flacks got wind that Mark was spilling the beans on something unannounced, they appeared from a cloud of smoke to shut the conversation down. Oh well!
