Oslo/New York: While Apple and Nokia fans are eagerly waiting for the iPhone 5 and Windows Phone 8, the release date of both the phones has caught the attention of everyone.
Mobile phone maker Nokia had said that it will hold a joint media event with Microsoft Corp in New York on September 5, fanning speculations that it will unveil its much anticipated Windows smartphone upgrade before rival Apple Inc rolls out its next iPhone.
The joint event with Microsoft will occur a week before Apple is expected to unveil its own hotly anticipated iPhone 5 which is expected to get released on September 12.
Nokia has not commented on specific plans for its Nokia World trade show event in Helsinki on September 5 and 6.
Elop has been recently quoted talking about the Windows Phone 8 smartphones over its expected release date in the "relatively near term."
