What are people expecting to see here at MWC'13?

Nokia will announce two new Lumia smartphones:
I'm certain about those two. Both look similar to the 820 but are somewhat thinner.
They might also announce one or two high end Lumia's, but I think they won't. They will likely announce them a bit after MWC.
I expect Nokia to also announce "Nokia Play" for WP8. Possibly also a new version of Nokia Drive... if not at MWC then shortly thereafter.
Many here know what my take is on Microsoft's standardized platform strategy, meaning they won't announce a new hardware chassis spec.
HTC won't have anything WP related to announce. They will be focusing entirely on the HTC One.
Microsoft too is unlikely to have anything interesting to report.
edit: almost forgot... Intel is expected to demo their Merrifield 22nm phone SoC

I come to not expect much on the high end my feelings now is WP8 will be a low to middle end OS....I think we will see some very awesome high end Android devices and a couple of low to middle WP8 devices with the famous saying coming soon. sorry it's how i'm starting to feel about WP.

Well after Nokia music did the Harlem shake, I'm half expecting Stephen Elop to give it a go with Steve Ballmer coming in typical fashion to join in.
On a serious note, I'm curious to see how this EOS device is going to turn out.

Lumia 520, Lumia 720 and 2-3 Asha devices for MWC. No updates coming from Microsoft for Windows Phone in MWC=no new high end hardware.
EOS will be a Q4 thing, RM-680 will be out before summer for Verizon and Catwalk will be announced in couple of months.

It looks like my prediction (post #2), which I made before the 520 and 720 renders started to leak, are spot on. Even the bit about Nokia Play. Yay for me!

MWC is now finished. This thread no longer served a purpose. Closed.
