For now Mobile World Congress 2010 seems to be a vacuous event and the risk of this actually happening is increasing with the growing number of manufacturers opting out. Recently we found out that Nokia won’t exhibit in Barcelona this February and intends to focus on promoting its infrastructure business through Nokia Siemens Networks.
Recent rumors that has just surfaced on the web has it that LG is about to follow suit and will not be showing anything at MWC 2010 either. People from LG International, say that one of the major reasons behind the manufacturer’s decision is the high cost of a pavilion at the fair. The Dutch division of LG Mobile has confirmed the information and went on to clarify the company would actually be in Barcelona, although not as an exhibitor at MWC 2010 and several new products would be showcased in a separate pavilion.
Nevertheless we believe that Nokia takes similar approach and we get to see, one way or another, their new handsets in February and also that the MWC 2010 won’t be less exciting.
