Next Monday morning, Nokia will hold its Mobile World Congress press event. It’s then when the Finnish company is widely expected to announce new devices. In fact, last week we heard that it will intro two new Windows Phones there, the Lumia 610 and Lumia 900. The Lumia 610 will supposedly be Nokia’s cheapest Windows Phone to date, and it will run Windows Phone Tango. That upcoming version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system will finally bring support for lower-end hardware than before, which is what will make devices such as the Lumia 610 possible.
The Nokia Lumia 900 is expected to be just an internationally-sold version of the smartphone bearing the same name that was announced for AT&T last month (maybe sans LTE support).
Today we get yet another ‘confirmation’ that these two models will be unveiled at MWC, this time from Reuters. According to “two sources close to the company”, Nokia will show both the Lumia 610 and the Lumia 900 in Barcelona.
We were pretty much convinced that the above would happen anyway, but if you needed another reason to be too – this was it. We’ll be at Nokia’s event in Barcelona and we’ll bring you the news as it happens.
