    So does the lack of leaks about new devices leading up to MWC indicate

    A) We're not going to see much in the way of truly new devices

    B) They're keeping a tight lid on things, and we're going to get blown away with a few surprises.

    C) The focus is really going to be post event and the Win8 rollout.

    well we already have a good 5-10 rumor devices announce

    LG , Samsung , Nokia , HTC .....

    honestly im hopping they share some light regarding Apollo/tango and fragmentation

    more then useless devices that are gona have the SAME (more or less) specs as phones we have now... so blah PINK NOKIA 900 WOOT! LMAO!

    better phones wont really come out till Apollo.( end q3-q4) i think NEWS related to WP will slow down till at lease tango.

    It's easy to miss things when we're all so eager here. :)

    Cheer up Winterfang, only 5 days until the 27th.

    Can't quite remember why that's important though. (Scratches head) :dry

    That's what it must be Winterfang, although I didn't know that, so it must be something else.

    Well I was born in the Dominican Republic. Maybe I should take the day off from work, Mondays are so boring though but I'm sure there must be something to do in the internet.

    Considering the way the Titan and Focus S have dropped into oblivion I'm not expecting anything much from those two companies or any other. Really seems like Nokia is the only OEM putting any effort into WP7, the rest are just chucking one or two devices out there and going back to their android business.

    That's what I'm afraid of too.

    We're going to be disappointed, just the low end 610 and global 900 for WP, the super-camera phone is Symbian:

    Reuters sources confirm Nokia Lumia 610 and Global 900 for MWC | WMPoweruser

    And this is what is going to be the norm for the competition from now on:

    Have to start wondering if WP will ever get anywhere with such a small number of choices or really competitive designs.

    @tomwarren Beware: It might be hard to hear the Windows Phone news above the stampede about Windows 8

    Which seems to imply the info will be coming after MWC and the Win8 Consumer Preview annoucement. It is worth noting that this is a new Twitter account with absolutely no track record of having inside info.

    Twitter is only showing 6 total tweets for him/her right now. But it's also acting pretty buggy this morning anyway.

    Thats nice, but I'll believe that when I see it. Not going to be at MWC which looks like it'll be another droid fest, just like last year.

    Well I'm also sad with the whole Nokia making a Symbian devices that's more high end than the 900.

    Well, we will know this Monday if Windows Phone is death or not.

    For me the news about the Nokia devices id x very good nerws and hopefully we will hear a definite date for the ATT 900 and with the Euriopean version announcement that will be a big deal and seller quickly for WP and get the buzz built up even more. Roll Nokia Roll!

    Meh, we knew Windows Phone 8 will support SD cards already and the Focus is an outdated phone anyway. That link did nothing for me, except make me angry. I feel like we will see nothing new.

    I'm telling you, if Windows Phone 8 doesn't blow my mind, I'm going apple >=(
