Nokia’s MWC teaser is confounding, while Sony’s is just vague


Samsung isn’t the only company getting us pumped-up for its MWC event early next week, and as we finish trying to read meaning into all the imagery it threw at us in its own teaser video, we have a couple more companies generating interest for their own MWC events, with new teasers from Nokia and Sony arriving.

Sony isn’t expected to have new hardware that’s quite as buzz-worthy as Nokia’s or Samsung’s, but there are at least a couple models we’re looking forward to, including that second-gen Xperia Tablet Z. But you wouldn’t be able to guess that from this teaser (above), as it’s just incredibly vague, mentioning little more than “something extraordinary” and not depicting any hardware at all.

Nokia, on the other hand, has us a little more excited with its Vine-based teaser, but that doesn’t mean we have the slightest clue what’s going on here. The 1020 is front-and-center, sure, but what might that have to do with MWC? After all, the word on the street’s been that this year’s MWC wouldn’t deliver any new Windows Phone hardware. So, could this have to do with a new software release? We’ll get our answer first thing Monday morning.

Update: Sony’s got a video now, too.
