Nokia rumored to be announcing a trio of smartphones at Mobile World CongressAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
We've already heard rumblings of what several companies, including the likes of HTC and LG, may have planned for Mobile World Congress later this month, and now a report has emerged claiming to have the goods on what the folks from Nokia have up their sleeves for MWC. According to Pocketnow, Nokia is prepping a sextet of handsets for the big shindig that'll consist of three smartphones and three feature phones. The smartphones that the Finnish firm will reportedly show off include two Windows Phones — an international Lumia 900 and an entry-level handset referred to as the Lumia 610 — as well as a Symbian-based handset dubbed the Nokia 808 PureView that may be the Nokia 803 that leaked last week. Meanwhile, the feature phones are said to be new members of the Series 40-powered line of Asha devices: the Asha 202, Asha 203 and Asha 302.
So that's what the rumor mill thinks that Nokia is planning for this year's Mobile World Congress. Many folks have been anticipating that Nokia would pump out an international Lumia 900, an expectation that was backed up by a photo of a white 900 without any AT&T branding that surfaced last week. As for the Lumia 610, it'll be interesting to see what Nokia could be cooking up for the rumored device, especially considering that many already view the Lumia 710 as the Finnish firm's entry-level Windows Phone. We'll be live on the ground at MWC later this month, so whatever Stephen Elop ends up pulling out of his pockets at the big show, we'll be there to cover it as it happens. What do you all make of Nokia's purported MWC lineup? Is there anything not mentioned that you'd like to see the company unveil?
