Nokia will unveil new mobile devices including its first ever tablet at an event in Abu Dhabi.

People ‘familiar with the plan’ told the WSJ that several Lumia devices, lower-end devices and Nokia’s first tablet will all debut at the event on October 22nd.

The Lumia smartphones will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, while the lower-end devices will be based on Nokia’s S40 software.

The tablet, code-named “Sirius”, will run Windows 8, competing directly with Microsoft – the company that bought Nokia’s Devices & Services business in September.

Last week Microsoft unveiled the Surface 2, which will be released on the same day as Nokia’s announcement – October 22nd.

With six mobile devices in total, these will be the first unveiled by Nokia since the buyout on September 3rd 013.

Last week, @evleaks posted a tweet suggesting the Nokia Sirius will actually be called the Lumia 2520.

On the smartphone front, some rumours suggest that a six-inch Lumia phablet will be unveiled at the event.
