This year’s Mobile World Congress officially begins on Monday February 24, and while the expo will continue running through that Thursday, we’re already expecting a majority of the show’s big news to arrive on that first day. Nokia was the first to announce a February 24 event, and later Samsung shared news that its Unpacked 5 event would round-out the day. Today we add one more company’s announcements to the calendar, getting word of Sony’s event.
Now, for the moment we don’t have an official invite to refer to, but Xperia Blog reports with confidence that it’s learned of a Sony MWC event for 8:30 CET on February 24.
That’s precisely the same time as Nokia’s MWC press conference, and considering the news we’re expecting out of Nokia (a little phone you might know as Normandy), Sony is going to need to stir up a lot of buzz if it wants to get anyone in attendance. As it stands now, there’s the presumed “Z2” that might make an appearance (which may or may not have anything to do with that super-narrow bezel we got a look at), and we’d love to hear more about Sony’s plans for Windows Phone (if anything’s actually going to come of those talks); maybe we’ll get a better idea at what might be on Sony’s menu over the course of the next week or two.
