Nokia says it's "invading" CES 2014 - but not exactly with new Lumias


While Nokia has nothing new to announce at CES 2014, the company did arrive in Vegas for the trade fair. In a post made at its official Conversations blog, Nokia stated that Lumia was “invading” CES this week. However, we can't help but feel that invade is too big of a word for what Nokia is actually doing at the show - it’s simply presenting already announced Windows Phone 8 handsets, including the 6-inch Lumia 1520 and the camera champion Lumia 1020. We're not sure how many CES attendees will notice Nokia's presence with all the new devices announced until now, including Samsung tablets, Asus tablets and handsets, Sony Xperia smartphones, wearables, TVs, and so on.

Still, Nokia says that its visitors will have the chance to win “some fun prizes”, although it’s not clear how that’s going to happen. Also promised were “appearances from Nokia execs, including a special guest from the PureView engineering team.” So, in the end, if you’re interested in Windows Phone or Nokia, a visit to the company’s CES 2014 stand will probably not disappoint you.

CES 2014 aside, Nokia is supposed to announce at least two new Lumia smartphones in the near future: the Lumia 929 (a Verizon exclusive) and the Lumia 630 / 635 (the 630 model possibly being be the world’s first dual SIM Windows Phone handset). We'll certainly let you know when these will finally become official.

It's too late for symbian. But there is still hope for Sailfish. Don't get me wrong I love symbian, I still use Nokia 808 as my main phone. But Symbian is a very mature system with all its consequences. If You put down project, that has years and years of development in its sources, it's hardly possible to revive it.

they already sold device department and pureview comes with device department too, so that means Nokia not have pureview anymore. right now nokia can do is they have to make their new line up, except lumia and asha.

I believe M$ now has access to PureView as well... Nokia is in deep slumber until 2016. Maybe it's the calm before the storm as M$ starts where Nokia left off? xD

I wonder, what would happen, if after the transition, all PureView team has left Microsoft, and came back to Nokia? As far as I know, Nokia kept it's patents, and Microsoft only bought ten year right to use them... I know it seems unlikely, but microsoft doesn't own people, and I imagine - as Nokia was considered national treasure among Finns - most Nokia workers are probably Nokia fans.

Good point. People passionate about their work. Just like how post-merger die-hard Nokians united to work on Jolla, which itself looks really promising and has great potential, I would say Nokia will emerge from the darkness after the licensing agreement, and hopefully lead the mobile world through innovation as it did in the past, dominating all other OEMs. That's one area where Nokia's been before, so it's not at all new to Nokia. Also, the opposite i.e. Nokia failing like BB, or R.I.P Nokia is not likely to happen - that's why the M$ merger was established in the first place, right? M$ didn't buy Nokia because it was a dead upon arrival, sinking company. Further proving this is the fact that barely anyone is interested in buying out BB. I think M$ is playing smart by sprucing up Nokia by 2016. M$ has a Nokia ace up its sleeve.

Could the special guest from the PureView team be none other than Damian Dinning?
