Details of the conference have been kept strictly under wraps but rumours have been circulating about a potential tablet launch, as well as the integration of wireless charging and Nokia's market-leading Pure View technology.

There has been no official word from Nokia on this yet, only a short teaser video, which was released last month featuring the words 'Things are about to change'.

Matt Farrington-Smith from our MSN UK Tech & Gadgets team will be covering the event in full with a live blog from 3pm today. Keep up to date with all the developments from New York as they happen here:
