While we're all eagerly awaiting to see what Nokia will bring to consumers in terms of Windows Phone 8 hardware, we've got word that CEO Stephen Elop will be delivering a keynote speech next year at Mobile World Congress. This will be the next step for the Finnish manufacturer -after the holiday season- to really step up its game and continue to produce innovative Windows Phones.
Before we reach the festive period, we're still approaching Nokia World 2012 which will be held in Helsinki, Finland, later on next month. This event will follow on from whatever is announced (if anything at all) at Nokia's party next week, which Windows Phone Central will be attending. It's positive to see Nokia planning ahead and is a reassurance the manufacturer has some tricks left up the ol' sleeves.
It would be interesting if both Stephen Elop and Steve Ballmer decided to rock next week's party with a duet performance of "The only way is up" by Yazz - we'll have to see what the evening brings.
