Tweet: Nokia packing four new handsets in its luggage for trip to Barcelona
A tweet sent out by Alan Mendelevich, the guy who runs Windows cross-promotion network Adduplex, mentions some interesting things that have been turning up in his company's logs. By interesting things, we mean a number of new Nokia Lumia models that will be unwrapped at MWC 2013. One model he mentioned is the Nokia RM-914, which is expected to be the Nokia Lumia 520, a low-end entry level device that is expected to be equipped with a 4 inch Super Sensitive screen with a dual-core 1GHz processor under the hood, 512MB RAM, 8GB of native storage available (expandable with a microSD card), a rear-facing 5MP camera (no front-facing shooter) and of course, Windows Phone 8 installed.

This tweet says Nokia is packing heavy for MWC

Also mentioned is the RM-885, which is expected to be the Nokia Lumia 720. This model has similar specs to the Lumia 520, but with a larger 4.3 inch screen and a 6MP camera on back. The last two handsets are rumored to be the phones codenamed the Laser and the Catwalk. Both are high-end handsets said to be coming to Verizon. The Catwalk is allegedly a lighter, thinner version of the Nokia Lumia 920 with a lightweight aluminum body. The Laser is rumored to be the Windows Phone flavored model with the 41MP PureView camera sensor.

So now it looks like we have four new reasons to look forward to MWC 2013, which starts a week from Monday.

Android is everywhere, Nokia's fine where they are, but they only need to refine WP8 further.

Curious whether the PureView 41 Mp device gets to share the L9X0 numbering scheme, or does it get its own number (L10X0)?

Either way, PureView 41 Mp on VZW could be a reason for me to consider a WP8 Nokia as my next phone. Props to Nokia if they release the new flagship in a reasonable timeframe.

pureview 828?

828 would imply an improvement to the Symbian edition. If it is a WP8 version, it would probably be either an L930/L940 or L1010 (?). Maybe the VZW flagships get the L930 and L940 designations?

Then again, Nokia is supposed to be telling all in a week from Monday.

Always is a long time. Symbian is great, but can be outdated. Much like how we don't use Windows 98 anymore.

They're a crummy carrier but they have over 100 million subscribers, and subscribers with a history of trying new things (the Droid series for example - how many people refer to Android as just Droid because of that?) so it is a good move for Nokia

I really hope this carrier-exclusive baloney ends ASAP. Nokia needs more sales, and best way to do that (as Samsung and apple can attest) is saturation. Nit many customers are going to eat carrier ETFs just to get a phone with someone else unless there is added incentive.

Unfortunately it is Nokia, so even if it only has a 4.5 inch screen and is thinner and lighter than the 920, it's still going to be roughly the same size as the 5 inch screen Xperia Z and ZL. Which is a failure.

HTC will be only slightly worse having a 4.7 inch screen that is the size of a 5 inch phone.

Nokia phones are larger than competitors for a reason - watch their devices' torture tests with other gadgets and you'll understand. I'm sure Nokia could make their phones super slim if they want to, but they don't want to soil their reputation for amazingly durable phones.

HTC M7 and these new phones from nokia.. will certainly make headaches for Sammys S4..

optimus pro and XZ are having a hard time to beat galaxy series, just concluded from the reviews..
