I'm live from Nokia's CES 2012 press conference, and while we're 99 percent sure the 4G LTE-powered Lumia 900 will be stealing the show, there's always room for surprises.  Could we see a series of US-bound Nokia Windows Phones?  New services?

The liveblog starts at 3:00 PM Pacific/6:00 PM Eastern, so be sure to bookmark the page.  And hey, leave some questions for Nokia!  Rumor has it that some may be answered...

Eduardo Ordaz
Eduardo Ordaz Maybe they will announce that wp7 is just not cutting it 4 them?
Eduardo Ordaz
Eduardo Ordaz Both IOS And Android! People don't like these wp7. The prefer something else like IPhone,Android and blackberry. Wp7 is boring u cant customize ur stuff nor customize the background behind those pizza boxes. Its all stale and boring and cold. The apps on IOS and Android are waaay better than wp7. Plus rooting and jailbreaking is great. Use both IOS and Android. Wp7 is just boring and it sucks.
