Invites are going out today for a joint Microsoft and Nokia event in New York.The event is almost certainly for a new phone from Nokia powered by Microsoft’s next mobile operating system called Windows Phone 8.

Windows Phone 8 won’t be ready until this fall, so it’s likely Nokia’s won’t have too many solid details on the new phone.
