Making a Comeback: Nokia back at Mobile World Congress, Has Something Significant to Show

After a three-year absence, Nokia has confirmed that it will take part in this year’s Mobile World Congress.

The Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest mobile industry exhibition and conference featuring prominent Chief Executives representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from all over the world. The annual even takes place in Barcelona. This year’s edition begins February 27 all through March 1.

Nokia withdrew from the 2010 World Congress, stating it would use its resources and funds to drive other marketing activities.

In 2011, Nokia decided to focus its attention and efforts at its own Nokia World event instead. It was at the 2011 Nokia World in October that Nokia unveiled the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710.

Nokia said that it will participate in this year’s congress in a big way with “a lot to interest people.”

The exact nature of what Nokia will reveal at the congress is still a closely guarded secret for now but an unveiling of a GSM version of the Lumia 900 or perhaps even the rumoured spiritual successor to the Nokia N8 – the 12MP Lumia 910 – doesn’t look so far-fetched at the moment.
