Nokia teases 'Green with envy' announcement for Monday
Nokia is preparing to make an announcement on June 23rd, according to the Nokia Conversations blog. Light on clues, the post includes a countdown timer that will run until Monday, a green graphic with a white stripe, and two statements: "Green with envy" and "Summer brings out our inner glow." Pocket-Lint suggests the event is by the Nokia Devices and Services division bought by Microsoft, rather than the remainder of the company, and while it could be for another Windows Phone, it could also be an updated version of the Android-based Nokia X.
