Update: We’re Live From Barcelona and Excited! – Come Dance With Nokia

Hey guys, just thought I’d drop a quick update; we reached Barcelona a couple hours ago (flight went by smoothly). As soon as we reached the hotel I hit up CJ (AKA Clinton Jeff) and we zoomed over to “Fira Gran Via” the new location for MWC this year. We got our badges printed and our NFC apps verified and did some quick scoping of the scene in anticipation of tomorrow’s action.

Nokia appear to be set up in hall 3 (all hush hush, no one allowed anywhere near there); but they did have some billboards stating “Come Dance With Us”. Of course we have no idea what that means; but it could be simply referring to the Nokia/Asha/Lumia dance they were doing at last years event:

Although Microsoft/Windows Phone don’t have a booth this year (AFIK) they are somehow the platinum sponsors of the event (In a show of true MSFT stubbornness rather than moving their TV truck a few feet, they decided to saw down the tree that was blocking the view- See pictures below). Hopefully we’ll see something from them this week, or at the very least a cameo at Nokia’s event to reassure/announce something regarding the platform.

*P.S.- It’s quite cold.
