What's Nokia got cooking in Barcelona today (and tomorrow)?

| February 15, 2010 | Reply

Nokia aren’t attending MWC, but they are still in Barcelona hosting their own event.

  • Monday 15th Feb, 10:30 GMT, Nokia have a joint press conference with Intel
  • Tuesday 16th Feb, 11:15 GMT, Nokia have another press conference.

Apparently there aren’t going to be any new device announcements. Not that they would have had to make much effort given Samsung and Sony Ericsson’s offerings yesterday.

The N87/N8 and N98 have been on the rumour mill for quite a while, as with the Maemo 6 device. But these high end Android eaters probably won’t be officially announced until another separate event as Nokia in Barcelona is meant to be focusing on software and services. Hmmm….

From Nokia Conversations:

Let’s be honest, conferences are massive noisy venues where hoards of people push themselves from one place to another like herds of cattle. Not an ideal setting to converse with media, customers, investors, analysts and invited guests, don’t you think? So Nokia is trying something new this year, we’re spreading out!

Nokia is moving its home base to ONCE (headquarters to Spain’s National Association of the Blind), just 300 meters from the FIRA, a venue that can truly accommodate all our guests. In it you’ll find multiple levels containing lounges, demos, meeting rooms, catering, and an auditorium. Be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes video coming later today for a sneak peek.

In addition to our off campus location, you’ll find NAVTEQ’s booth in Hall 1 (#1D59). Qt has their own booth in Hall 1 as well (#1E44). Nokia Siemens Networks will have a hospitality booth in Hall 8 (#8C01 + 8C03) plus a press/analyst briefing at ONCE. Nokia will be sponsoring the WIPJam developer event at the App Planet sideshow in Hall 7. And Nokia will have a total of eight speakers participating in MWC panels.
