Nokia has confirmed that it will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month, ending a three-year exile, according to a report by Mobile News.
A Nokia spokesperson said: “The last couple of years we have chosen to have things outside the main event, but this year we have chosen to be back in the main arena.
“It’s going to be a big one, we are there in a major way.”
The Finnish manufacturer withdrew from the MWC 2010, stating that it would use the money to drive other marketing activities. Similarly, the firm chose to continue the absence in 2011, instead focusing their attention on the Nokia World event.
Perhaps in part due to their successful showing at CES in Las Vegas last week, it seems that Nokia has had a change of heart for this years event. Details of exactly what will be on show remain guarded however, with a European launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 unexpected.
The brand will be displaying in the Apps Planet section of the congress during the event, which begins on the 27 February. More than 1,400 organisations from around the world will be exhibiting at MWC 2012.
