So, That “Something Amazing” Coming to Nokia? It’s a Helsinki Store Remodel.

Earlier this week, some interesting signage appeared outside Nokia’s flagship store in Helsinki, promising that “something amazing” will occur there on Sept. 7. “Start the adventure now” … “prepare to be amazed at all the new things in your Nokia store,” the messaging reads.

Understandably, this is causing all manner of speculation. Nokia World occurs on Sept. 5 and 6 this year, and some observers are theorizing that the “amazing” thing that is to occur at the Helsinki store on Sept. 7 will be the debut of some fantastic new devices.

Well, that’s not the case. Reached for comment, a Nokia spokesperson told AllThingsD that the signage is simply promoting a big retail remodel. Said Nokia spokesman Keith Nowak, “That store is undergoing some scheduled summer maintenance/renovation and will reopen on September 7. This has been made into a lot more than it is.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
