Nokia is promising big things for a September 5 event in New York City.

The mobile company today posted a video showing a woman riding a bike down a street. About midway through that clip, a text overlay comes up that reads: "Things are about to change." The video's description on YouTube adds a bit more details, saying that the change is coming "5 September 2012. Stay tuned!"

Nokia announced earlier this month that it will host a New York press conference on September 5. The company said the event will be in partnership with Microsoft, leading many to believe that Windows Phone 8-bundled devices will take center stage.

Microsoft made some waves with Windows Phone 8, saying that Windows Phone 7-based devices won't be upgradeable to the new operating system. Instead, the devices will be upgraded to Windows Phone 7.8 -- a version that adds some of the features found in Microsoft's new operating system, but not all of them.
