Nokia's Mobile World Congress teaser thin on details

Something is afoot at Mobile World Congress next month, we just can't say what. But we'll put money on a new Windows Phone smartphone design anyway.

Nokia is planning something at Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona, Spain. Of that I'm sure.

Usually the pre-trade-show teasers hint at one thing or another, but this one is frustratingly detail-free. If there's something we journalist types abhor, it's a lack of news clues.

Nokia did e-mail the press with invitations to a press conference on the show's opening day, February 27, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. local time. CNET will be there to cover it.

There are only a few reasons why a company would call a press conference, and that's usually to launch a new product or service.

The fact that Nokia is plotting something sends strong signals that we'll see at least one new Windows Phone from it as the European mobile conference extraordinaire kicks off a month from now.
