Nokia to launch six handsets at MWC?

Yes, we're still getting the pre-event gossip for the big MWC show, with the latest rumour blowing our way suggesting six mobile phone launches from Nokia at the trade show.

Yes, six phones, although we suspect two of those handsets will get much more attention than the other four. Pocketnow claims to have the lowdown on the company's MWC launch line-up, which is said to include two Windows phones, one Symbian handset and three S40 feature phones. Like we said, two jump off the page.

The Lumia launches are said to be the global version of the Nokia Lumia 900, aka the Lumia 910, along with the Lumia 610. With the former, that's expected to offer up a 1.4GHz processor, Windows Phone 7.5 for the OS, 16GB of storage, HSDPA (21Mbps) and a 4.3-inch screen, along with an improved 12-megapixel camera, if the grapevine is correct. As for the latter, that's simply described as 'an entry-level' Windows phone. Nokia certainly seems to be have done its job in keeping that one quiet.

As for the rest of the bunch, the Nokia 808 PureView has been rumoured as as a full touch-screen successor to the Nokia N8, with the Asha 302, Asha 203, and Asha 202 making up the numbers as S40 phones. So while Samsung might be playing down its launches at MWC, Nokia is really pushing the boat out at the event, as it looks to capitalise on the good press the Windows platform has so far received.

Of course, you'll get the full lowdown as soon as those launches break at the end of this month.
