Nokia World has usually been one large Nokia conference each year, but the format is going to change. It will now split into smaller, more intimate events around the globe. The first of these will take place in Helsinki on September 5-6th for operator and retail partners only.
Circle September 25 and 26 on your calendar. Nokia World 2012 will be held on those days in Helsinki, Finland. The two previous Nokia World events were in London. It will be held in Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre. I’ve attended in the past 2 years, covering the event for The Nokia Blog. I hope I can attend again this year to provide live coverage for you with high quality videos.
We got a closer look at the Nokia Asha 300 at Nokia World. The Nokia Asha 300 is a touch device which also offers the convenience of a keypad. The Nokia Asha 300 has a 1GHz processor and 3G. It has a 5 megapixel camera, a music player, FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity and can handle memory cards up to 32GB.
We found a white Nokia N9 at one of the booths in Nokia World. It’s glossy and not the matte-like material that we’ve previously seen (Cyan, Magenta, Black). It looks great. Take a look.
Here’s a concept device from Nokia called the Kinetic. You use it by bending and twisting. It is not a touchscreen! This new technology is very beneficial for those who live in cold environments because gloves don’t work well with touchscreens.
We took a look at the Nokia Asha 303 at Nokia World. It has a 2.6″ capacitive touch screen with a QWERTY keypad. The Nokia Asha 303 is built with Internet and social networks ease in mind. There’s a 1Ghz engine, 3G and WLAN. It will also be affordable.
I guess this is the first episode of The Nokia Blog Weekly Nokia News. I’m trying something new. I’ll summarize the top Nokia news each week on video. Let me know if this is something you’d like to see regularly. This covers the top news from October 1st to 7th.
Nokia World is a little over a month away. It’s probably safe to say we’ll see official announcements of Nokia Windows Phone devices at this event. A number of Microsoft executives are listed on the speakers list to discuss various things. Take a look.
Nokia has been off-site the last couple of years at Mobile Word Congress (MWC), but 2012 will be different. At the upcoming event, Nokia will exhibit in a 2,300 square meter space and CEO Stephen Elop will be a keynote speaker. MWC is the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry.
Phil McClendon, Product Marketing Manager at Nokia, gave us a demo of the social application on the Nokia N8 from Nokia World. With the social app, you can see your Twitter/Facebook feeds, enter your status and even your location. The events section lets you RSVP and add it directly to your Nokia N8′s calendar. Watch the video after the jump.
