A teaser image for a Wednesday Nokia (NOK +3.7%) event promising "something new" strongly suggests a new QWERTY phone is on tap. Many think the phone is a new Asha model, particularly given the event has been announced online with very short notice. Nokia's Asha sales fell 46% Q/Q in seasonally weak Q1, as the touchscreen feature phone line battles in emerging markets with Android hardware that's steadily getting cheaper.
