Nokia set to launch an LTE Phone during MWC in February?
The claims listed below are not hard facts - rather a mix of what inside sources say and common knowledge dictates - but the bottom line is that it's likely that Nokia will announce its first 4G (LTE) enabled handset during MWC in February, as well as more details about its upcoming high-end smartphone/tablet platform - MeeGo.

Nokia didn't unveil any devices during CES, but this didn't stop the Finnish company to publish some intriguing posts on its Nokia Conversations blog (titled "Why you want LTE" and "From 1G to 4G") on 5th and 8th of January, respectively. Furthermore, there are wild rumours going on that Nokia is set to have a very strong MWC presence (as usual, really), and it's hard to believe that the company may delay the introduction of its first 4G handset any further. Nokia spokeswoman Anna Martin neither confirmed, nor denied these rumours:

"As for LTE, it is an important technology which Nokia is firmly committed to, but at this point we haven't announced any further details or plans."

CES 2011 is over and we're already looking forward to MWC 2011 (and we'll be there to tell you all you need to know), which will take place in Barcelona between February 14-17. It is shaping to be quite an interesting event - Sony Ericsson is expected to announce the XPERIA Play, it is anticipated that Samsung will show-off some "next-generation" tablets and chances are we will see the first 4G Windows Phone 7 handset there.
