Tomorrow is the day when annual Mobile World Congress expo will be held in Barcelona and all the top mobile vendors from all over the world will be there to bring their latest devices to show off to the world. According to the latest report, we have found out that Nokia is planning on bringing several new entry level devices at the MWC event tomorrow. The report also suggests that some of these devices will be powered by Windows Phone as well.
The report comes from Reuters, actually Nokia is trying to get more attention in the entry level market and now that the Finnish manufacturer is facing some real competition due to the popularity of Chinese manufacturers like Huawei and ZTE in the same field.
That’s not the only new report about Nokia which we have heard. Another rumor which has been confirmed by various sources has suggested that Nokia is also planning on showing off its new flagship device powered by Windows Phone. It will be named as Nokia EOS and it will be coming with the same PureView phase one camera technology that was introduced by Nokia last year in its Nokia 808 PureView handset.
Well, it seems like Nokia has really accomplished its main targets of getting popular in the Windows Phone market, as Nokia is the leading manufacturer of the Windows Phone devices and its WP smartphones are selling pretty well all around the world. And now Nokia is also planning on getting more customers by expanding its target to the entry level consumers. Right now we don’t have much info about these new upcoming entry level devices from Nokia but we are expecting to see more from their very successful Asha series of handsets.
Only in the last quarter of the last year, Nokia was able to sell over 4.4 million units of Lumia smartphones which is a pretty impressive record. Of course Nokia is unable to compete with the 50 million smartphones sold by Samsung in the same quarter, but they will need much more work and time to get there.
