Don't expect a Windows Phone, although those are in the pipe as well

Nokia Oyj. (HEX:NOK1V) was pounded by shareholders for missing its revenue forecast, but is still showing some decent growth with its Windows Phone lineup, whose sales have more than doubled on a year-to-year basis.

The company on Monday teased fans with a shot of what looked like (based on the key size and positioning) a QWERTY-keyboard equipped phone.  The company writes:

What’s up at Nokia?

You won’t have to wait long to find out.

On Wednesday morning at 7am GMT we will be announcing something new, followed by a Q&A session with Neil Broadley from our Mobile Phones team and a special guest.

Nokia QWERTY teaser


But before you get too excited, this is reportedly not a Windows Phone, but rather the Asha 205/210.  Nokia is also expected to possibly announce the Asha 501 at the event.  Much of the Asha family already comes with QWERTY keyboards -- namely the Asha 200, 201, 302, and 303.  But this appears to be the first Asha phone to borrow the Lumia line's iconic colorful one-piece polycarbonate body-style.

The new Asha phone(s) looks to offer a budget alternative to BlackBerry Ltd.'s (TSE:BBfresh Q10 3.1-inch QWERTY device.  However, the Asha phones are rumored not to even have 3G support.

Windows Phone fans still have something to look forward to: Windows Phone Blue is fast approaching, and in the meantime Nokia is rumored to be preparing to launch a trio of Windows Phones.  Those phones reportedly will include an upgraded version of the flagship Lumia 920, a larger phablet-style device, and the long-awaited Windows Phone variant of the 41-megapixel PureView shooter.
