Nokia to unveil 'Pure View' at Mobile World Congress

It's not clear what Nokia plans to announce, but it will almost certainly have something to do with snapping a picture on your smartphone.

Nokia has released its first teaser video leading up to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, hinting at a new camera-centric announcement. "Get ready to capture a pure view," the teaser reads before flashing February 27, the first day of the trade show, on the screen.

While it's not clear what Nokia plans to announce, it will almost certainly have something to do with snapping a picture on your smartphone. The teaser video shows a series of snow-covered vistas followed by short one-liners such as "pure detail," "pure depth," and "pure definition" followed by the message about capturing a "pure view."

Some critics are guessing Nokia will be bringing 12 megapixel cameras to its Windows Phone this year such as a rumored Lumia 910. Another possibility is that the announcement will bring new high-definition video capability to upcoming Nokia devices.

Nokia has produced smartphones with excellent cameras in the past. Nokia's Symbian-based N8, released in 2010, was widely acclaimed for its 12 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash. PCWorld gave the N8 three out of five stars, praising the phone's "superb camera."

Nokia says it will be releasing updates about the company's "Pure View" plans on its Twitter account during MWC. But if you miss it, PCWorld will have you covered with on the ground reports and commentary from the year's biggest phone and wireless show. The fun starts Monday.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
