Nokia Corp had announced it was pushing back the publicity launch of its first smartphone after the company had sold its handset business to Microsoft Corp. Despite the sale, the company still has plans to start selling its phones as originally scheduled.

The new smartphone is expected to be under the Lumia line and would run on Microsoft Windows software. The company though did not comment on the specifications of the new product or the schedule of the launch for the new smartphone.

There are many discussions though that the new smartphone's dimensions would be larger compared to the other devices in the current Nokia product line. It will also be carrying camera technology developed by Nokia. There were plans to provide the public its first peek into the new phone this September but the unveiling was re-set for October, according to anonymous sources. 

This is the first event and one of the important milestones for Nokia as a company after it had announced that Microsoft would be purchasing the handset business of Nokia for a price tag of USD7 billion.
