Nokia back at Mobile World Congress after three year absence

Handset manufacturer expecting to exhibit in the Apps Planet section, promising “to be there in a major way”

Nokia has confirmed it will end a three-year exile and exhibit its products at the 2012 Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month.

Nokia withdrew from the 2010 World Congress, stating it would use the money to drive other marketing activities.

In 2011, Nokia decided not to return with a stand to MWC, with the firm focusing its attention on its Nokia World event instead.

A Nokia spokesperson told Mobile News it was expecting to be in the Apps Planet section of the congress during the event, which begins February 27.

Nokia 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.

“We are looking forward to going and we think we will have a lot to interest people.”

More than 1,400 organisations from around the world will be exhibiting at MWC 2012.
