Further investigation leads us to 2 clues that the countdown is about ‘new messaging solutions.’ That vague statement could mean new devices, services, or apps.

Have you seen the Nokia Messaging Musical video yet? It’s corny but worth watching if you have a few minutes to spare. It’s The Office meets Glee. Nokia users familiar with Nokia Messaging and others who don’t know the simple email setup email on compatible Nokia devices should watch this video.

@nokiamessaging tweeted on Friday that the US has been turned on for Nokia Messaging. This means we can now set up our Nokia Messaging accounts directly from the phone. Previously, US residents had to press a button at email.nokia.com using a computer, then wait for an SMS on the phone.
