- Nokia will take part in MWC 2010 after all, but will be shift its focus to its infrastructure business. The official announcement made at GSMA further clarifies that the manufacturer will participate in the exhibition, so as company representatives can visit business related meetings and take part in the many conferences, but their attention will be centered on Nokia Siemens Networks. This doesn´t mean Nokia will not introduce different cell phones (like quite a few rumors had it), but simply, we shouldn´t expect ground-breaking novelties. (source: GSM World)
- New images of a case designed for the LG Chocolate BL40 have appeared. We do think that once it gets released in mid September, the case will prove to be one of the most wished for presents, at least by women. Friendly advise - just do what we do and make sure your wife doesn´t see the pictures. (via: Flickr)
