WMPoweruser claims to have some information from inside Nokia World that this year was mostly for Nokia’s partners. Such as operators, suppliers and so on.
Nokia employees are of course proud of the new Lumia phones and Nokia is still as committed to Windows Phone as ever. Even so according WMPoweruser there was some mumbling about Microsoft lacking “the sense of urgency which Nokia exhibited”. From Nokia’s and Samsung’s WP8 announcements it seems clear that Microsoft simply isn’t yet ready with Windows Phone 8.
Nokia confirmed it would have all of the accessories right on the launch of the new Lumia’s. Something Nokia sees important, as it should seeing how much attention Nokia received from the clever wireless charging accessories.
Also rightly so it was pointed that Microsoft has not marketed Windows Phone as aggressively as it should. This has clearly been the case just seeing what kind of impact Nokia took in matter of months entering Windows Phone and how much they invested on marketing.
You would expect something similar from Microsoft that knows like we all do that a software company like Microsoft simply can’t hold it’s current position if it’s not big in mobile. To answer this Microsoft is apparently pushing hundreds of millions towards Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 marketing in key countries like US, Germany, UK and France.
Not surprisingly the tablet question came out and Nokia confirmed they have tablet in the works. From previous rumors this tablet would be in the making in California partly by the same team that was working on Nokia Booklet 3G.
