Nokia’s Live-Streaming Its MWC Keynote So You Can Watch It Live


If you’re itching to see Nokia unveil its first Android-powered smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, then you’ll be pleased to know you can watch the entire thing live from the comfort of your own home. The Finnish firm has today confirmed that it will be live-streaming the announcement via the Nokia website.

The presser kicks off on Monday, February 24, at 8:30 a.m. local time. That’s 2:30 a.m. Eastern, 11:30 p.m. Pacific, and 7:30 a.m. GMT. Unfortunately for Windows Phone fans, it’s expected to focus entirely on the Nokia X — the handset we’ve already heard so much about in recent weeks.

Codenamed Normandy internally, the Nokia X will be Nokia’s first Android-powered smartphone. It’ll be an entry-level device that’s expected to cost just $100 off-contract, and specifications are to include a 4-inch WVGA display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Nokia X will be available in six color options, according to the ever-reliable @Evleaks, and it will run apps distributed by Nokia and third-party Android stores.
