Nokia World 2012 to feature new format with multiple events taking place

Nokia World 2012 was announced earlier this year and is set to be held in Helsinki, Finland on September 25-26. As was the case with London 2011, we expected a single event to be held in a fairly large convention centre. It seems Nokia has other ideas for this year as the manufacturer has revealed plans for a new format with holding a number of events separately.

The first of said events will be held on September 5-6, a handful of weeks in advance than previously announced. More information and details will be published in the coming months, but you can be sure Windows Phone Central will be at Nokia World to bring you the latest Windows Phone juice. The first event will target carriers and large partners, but follow-up events will cater different audiences.

Nokia has stated that we should look at future Nokia Worlds as more SXSW, rather than CES. All we know is that it's going to be an un-missable look at what hardware the manufacturer will have for Windows Phone 8 "Apollo".

  • Bring it!
  • Can't wait to see what happens
  • Man I gotta say if it was not for the "WPcentral" app I be in the dark about WP7 developments.
  • True statement
  • I second that comment. Having the WPCENTRAL app with notifications definitely keeps updated. I would refer my self as a addict of the app. Open 20 times a day
  • Agree. It's also one of the smoothest apps in the marketplace!
  • Great app and great material, but... We're not all fluent in the tech jargon, so why not decypher those acronyms sometimes for us dummies? Like SXSW and CES in this article.
  • South by southwest and Consumer electronics show. Duhhhhhh!!!
  • Much obliged. And what might the orientation SXSW mean in this context?
  • + 100%!
  • Your welcome.
  • For the tip.
  • Man I love WPcentral. I live in india and there are no sources from where I can find info about windows phone, I am the only guy with windows phone in my college of 10,000 students. So all info I get is from wpcentral. I own a Nokia lumia 800 and a Samsung galaxy s 2, but love my lumia over sgs2. And am thankful to wpcentral to lend me knowledge about the advancement in the Os. Thank you WPcentral.
  • I'm glad people agree, I actually check it many times a day its my most used app.
  • This is Nokia's dying attempt hopefully they kill it.
  • What u mean dieing attempt lol Nokia is above apple
  • +1 to the 20x's per day ;-)
  • At the behind the times in the Microsoft technology center in Dallas,TX I told everyone to get wpcentral cuz its the best that and tech news for other news to keep u ahead of the game
  • I prefer following WPCentral on Twitter through my People hub. The app is nice but I don't like the smaller browser window.
