Leaders in the mobile technology and cell phone market will gather, collaborate, and network in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress in a couple of weeks. We’ll probably even see some product announcements. I just got an overview of Nokia’s activities during the conference so you can prepare for what’s to come.
To celebrate Qatar’s win to host the 2022 FIFA Football World Cup, Qatar Airways are offering free economy class return tickets with purchase of Nokia phones: Nokia N8, E5, E63, E72, C7, C6, C3, X3-02 and Nokia 6120.

An improvised explosive device was defused by police outside a concert hall in Chechen Republic, Russia. A police spokesman told RIA Novosti the bomb contained 6 kg of TNT, chipped iron rods, screws, and a Nokia cell phone. Thankfully, the police intervened in time and no one was hurt.

One of the things shown off at Nokia World was the Booklet 3G, a Windows-based mini laptop with up to 12 hours of battery, 10.1in display, built-in SIM slot, A-GPS, front-facing camera, and more. I’ve asked a Nokia spokesperson at the event to give me an overview of the device in front of camera. Take a look.
I’ve been asking my new Twitter followers what Nokia phone they are currently using and which are they looking forward to. I’m surprised that the majority of those who responded still currently use the Nokia N95. The phone they are looking forward to vary, but most say the Nokia N97. Let me also ask the question here.
As some of you may recall, when Nokia Chat launched around August of last year, an enterprising Howard Forums member wrote a small bot that would echo messages sent to it to other users who had sent the bot a message, forming an ersatz IRC channel.
