Microsoft doesn't appear very interested in using the Nokia brand, even though it negotiated the rights for the next 10 years when acquiring the Finnish company's mobile phone division for $7.2 billion. However, we haven't seen the last of the Nokia name -- not by a long shot. Last week, reports surfaced that Nokia is planning to re-license its handset brand to other interested third parties, and now the company is taking to Twitter to tease an upcoming reveal.

"We at Nokia love the feeling of a fresh start. Can't wait for what's next!, #thinkingahead," the company posted to Twitter a couple of days ago.

The Twitter post was accompanied by a closeup of the Nokia brand name etched into a black device of some sort, though it's impossible to tell from the one picture alone. However, another Twitter post today showed a little black box in the shape of a NUC device.

This isn't likely to be the packaging for a smartphone or anything of the sort -- Nokia's done with manufacturing handsets. However, with all the interest in streaming products lately, it could be a streaming set-top box like Fire TV, Apple TV, or Roku. Or it could simply be a box with a totally different type of product inside, like a wearable device. A smartwatch or fitness band would fit with today's Twitter post, which features a picture of arms raised up in the air.

At least we won't have to wait very long to find out -- it looks as though Nokia is planning to make the big reveal tomorrow, November 18. In the meantime, care to venture a guess of your own?

Does the world need another streaming set-top box? especially from Nokia of all people?
