We’re Going to Barcelona! (What to Expect at MWC This Year)

| February 22, 2012 | 85 Replies

That’s right! Didn’t want to say anything until it was 100% sure, but MyNokiaBlog will be at MWC 2012 Barcelona LIVE to cover whatever amazing goodies Nokia has to give show off.

If all things go as planned, hopefully I’ll be on the conference floor getting some hands on pictures, footage, details and much much more while Jay (who couldn’t make it due to university commitments –  real shame) will be updating the blog with the device press releases, specs and other things (as it takes a while to upload the hands-on footage and video; also we’re not sure how dependable the WiFi will be at the exhibition hall).

Just to give you an overview of what to expect Nokia related:

This years MWC is the first time Nokia attends since 2009, but all evidence points that they plan to make up for lost time. Nokia have booked 2,300 Sq. feet of floor space inside the hall and have 3 separate booths (and one more for developers day)- Nokia will have booths number 7I10, 7H40 & 7H30 which as you can see from the image is a LOT of space.


As for Nokia’s agenda at the conference they actually have several different talks spread over 4 days (Feb 27th- March 1st) the first day is Nokia’s Developer conference (I assume this is to draw developers to develop for the Asha and Lumia range), day two covers Advertising and Social Media marketing (which should be interesting considering Nokia’s new take on advertising- with the ‘Amazing Everyday’ campaigns; yesterdays ‘Pure View Teaser’ and all the Lumia 800 & 710 ads ). Where things get really interesting is day 3 (Feb 29th) which is the Nokia Official Keynote starring none other than Stephen Elop (this is probably where any new Nokia devices will be announced); on the 4th and final day (march 1st) covers Monetizing on mobile markets.

Feb 27th:  Nokia Developer Day 

Feb 28th:  Mobile Advertising: Context is King – Advertising & Marketing with Mobile Social Media

Feb 29th: Keynote 5: Mobile OS & Applications (Stephen Elop)

March 1st: Mobile Money: Emerging Markets – Where are the Opportunities for Mobile Money?

you can find the full Agenda here:  ;however for some reason clicking ‘More Information’ gives me a 404 -page not found error?

Just to refresh what devices/ features to expect at MWC this year:

Of all the things to come; as anyone else I’m most excited about the N8 successor/PureView thing which inspired this tweet:

The fact that my N8 will be obsolete in a couple of days doesn’t bother me at all; in fact it excites me! #MWC

Honestly I can’t express how lucky I feel to be going to this probably once in a life time event! Anyone else going to be there?
