nokia microsoft new york inviteNokia and Microsoft have sent out invites to an event in New York September 5th, in what is expected to be a Windows Phone 8 release.

After leaks of what is reported to be the front cover of a new Lumia Windows Phone device and a working prototype it seems that things are hotting up in the Nokia workshops.

Members of the press have been invited to a joint Nokia and Microsoft event in New York on September 5th, which everyone is presuming to be the great unmasking of Noks range of mobiles equipped with the Windows Phone 8 operating system.

The invitation has little information other than the time, date and location, but it does feature the Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia logos.

The stateside event will take place during Nokia World in Helsinki, Finland.
