The tech blogosphere takes pride in its canny ability to leak information about upcoming devices and announcements before the company themselves make the information “officially official”. But execs at Nokia say their countdown clock (which runs out soon) is counting down to a huge announcement that nobody on the internet has yet predicted, leaked or anything else.

You can be pretty confident it isn’t the Nokia touchscreen XpressMusic phone because that has been leaked on more times than a portipot at Preakness. Apple and Android have their sight set on taking over the mobile industry and Nokia, whose Symbian OS is currently the market leader, doesn’t want to let that happen. So what will they announce?

For all the supposed “bragging” that Nokia execs are doing, it better be something good. We can be pretty sure it isn’t an Android based phone since Nokia owns Symbian, which competes directly with Android’s Linux based OS. But if somehow, some way it WERE an Android Phone… what are the chances it would be made available on Verizon Wireless? There you have it… the LEAST likely scenario… Nokia announces an Android Phone on Verizon Wireless.

But in all seriousness, most phandroids out there are also just mobile and tech enthusiasts in general and we’re curious to hear your predictions… what does Nokia have prepared to announce?

Will it be a phone or other hardware? Will it be about developments in the Symbian platform? Will it be a contest announcement and SDK of some sorts like the Android Developer’s Challenge? Or will it be something else altogether?
