Get Ready For The Biggest Nokia World – Yet

In 15 hours from now, Nokia World’s biggest and most awaited keynote will start and Nokia World ’09 would have truly begun. Nokia’s CEO OPK Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo and Anssi Vanjoki, Executive VP, Markets will take the stage to talk world domination in the keynote titled “The future of consumer driven mobile solutions“.

Nokia World '09

In the days leading up to Nokia World, Nokia has already announced a string of devices including the much awaited – N900, the bolt out of the blue – Booklet 3G and the Nokia 5230. A brand new services in the form of Nokia Money has also been announced. While it is possible that the string of leaks has pushed Nokia’s announcements, I have a feeling Nokia has managed to keep something big under wraps that we will be pretty happy to see announced tomorrow.

As far as rumours go, the N97 Mini is all but confirmed, there is also talk of a new naming scheme for devices – Cseries and Xseries that Nokia trademarked a little while ago. Word has it that the Xseries is in all probability the new name for the Xpress Music range. If it turns out to be true, then each of Nokia’s four series’ (C,X,N & E) will have a minimum set of specifications and higher models within them will build on those.

In terms of services, we will hear more about Nokia Money and possible a video store announcement. Lastly, as far as pure speculation goes, I also have a feeling we’ll see something in the imaging department.

Unfortunately, I will not be at Nokia World to get you all the latest from the floor, but fortunately for those of us unable to make it, Nokia will be webcasting the event live, starting 9:00 am CET (12:30 pm IST). Nokia Conversations will also be bringing complete coverage of the announcements, so make sure you keep an eye there as well. If Twitter is your thing, the #NW09 hashtag should do it as well.

What would you like to see announced?

Nokia also has a special developer agenda planned and one of the topics from which is “Technology Update: Evolution in Nokia Software – Cross Platform Development” or how developers can develop for Symbian and Maemo in one go. This could be the beginning of the change we have been expecting. More here:

I would love to make it this year, and if you are interested as well, the conference fee is EUR 700 + 19% VAT. This includes conference sessions, entrance to the Nokia World experience lounge, lunch and refreshments across the two days, as well as the Nokia World party on the evening of 2 September.
