Nokia launching Windows 8 Lumia on Sept 5?

Nokia Corp. and Microsoft Corp. have sent out invitations to an event in New York on Sept. 5 that many are predicting will focus on Windows Phone 8.

The invitation, shown here at the Wall Street Journal, includes both a Windows Phone logo and a Nokia Lumia logo.

The WSJ also points to a tweet from Chris Weber, sales head at Nokia (NYSE:NOK), which says: “Samsung take note, next generation Lumia coming soon. #nokia”

The event is scheduled the same day Nokia will be holding its Nokia World event in Helsinki, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), which has a Mountain View campus, is expected to release the Windows Phone 8 with Nokia, which will compete with both Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google Inc.’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) phone products.
