Nokia to hold press conference at MWC on February 25th

Nokia to hold press conference at MWC on February 25th
Those Nokia fans in the U.S. and Canada should be prepared to stay up late on the morning of February 25th, because that is the date of a press conference that will be held by the Finnish handset manufacturer. The event will take place at 9am Barcelona time on the first day of MWC. That translates into 3am Eastern time in the states and midnight Pacific time. We expect to hear about a number of new devices including the Nokia Laser which is expected to be a variant of the high-end Nokia Lumia 920 for Verizon.

Other possible topics include the Nokia EOS which is the long awaited Windows Phone 8 model with the same camera sensor (41MP) found on the Nokia 808 PureView. We've seen a lot of demand for this one, so it should go over big. Allegedly coming to AT&T later in 2013, it will have an aluminum body with square edges. And hopefully we will hear more about the Nokia Catwalk, which is supposed to be a slimmer successor to the Nokia Lumia 920. These are all code names, so perhaps we will find out the real moniker for each of these models during the event next month.

We're sure that there will be a lot to talk about after the press conference. It might not be as full as drama as Allen Iverson's famous "practice" press event, but we're sure it will give us plenty to digest.

And the remaining 23-ish percent prefer iOS. So WP isn't exactly dominating.

the same was the case with android and iOS during their initial years and Symbian had the majority market share..So only time will tell...

The press invite offers a number of clues: Super-sensitive touchscreen - as indicated by the fork/hand juxtaposition Eco-friendly design. Probably uses recycled material - hence the tree ?? Nokia may well showcase some new camera technology, but I don't think they'll use MWC to launch a new flagship. This will happen later in the year at Nokia World. So what will they annoounce ??? My guess is a successor to the 710 and possibly even a tablet. This is only a wild guess, but we could see the clam-shell design make a return

Probably a Tablet and certainly the Lumia 720 will be unveiled in the MWC...

Nokia's striking back to take its position. I don't know if this would be possible, but feature phones (like the asha series) powered by windows should do some good i think.

Really hope Nokia will be coming out something that is novel, that is beyond what our minds think. Not just 41 pureview but something more attractive. The technology is advancing at the speed of light. It is no point to use the same type of innovation. It is best to keep on introducing something new to the market to attract all the youngster. Even those Android users might switch to Windows.

I will be the odd ball Nokia will announce an Android version of the 920 at the very end of the show and shock the world. They will announce a Nokia Windows RT and Windows 8 Tablet. The Windows 8 tablet will come out in the fall. I am a Windows phone fan Nokia makes the best Windows smart phones
