CeBIT, the annual digital industry trade show is getting underway at Hannover, Germany from March 2nd. That’s tomorrow. And Nokia is expected to unveil a new C-Series of handsets during the event.
A Nokia spokesperson, wrote in the Nokia Conversations newsletter
“Of course, we don’t comment on rumours or leaks, but we are looking forward to C BIT for the next series of Nokia announcements. Right we’re off to pack our rucksacks and lederhosen, C you there.”
News about a new C series phone from Nokia have been doing the rounds for quite some time now and incidentally, Nokia’s trademark application for C6 was approved by FCC just last week. With an implicit reference to the “C” in the spokesperson’s statements, we expect Nokia to spill the beans about its new series tomorrow.
The Google Phone could soon be made available on AT&T and Sprint’s 3G networks. If rumors are to be believed, work on this is already happening behind the scenes.
Documents submitted to FCC recently have offered indications of the Nexus One becoming available on AT&T’s 3G network soon. If you are wondering if this is something that is already possible, here is a clarification : Unlocked version of Nexus One is available for $529. However, you cannot use the device to access internet via AT&T or Sprint’s 3G networks. The device can only access the 3G network from T-Mobile. Users who do unlock the device can only access internet via AT&T’s Edge or 2.5G networks.
While partnership with AT&T appears likely after documents submitted to FCC, the speculations about Sprint remain sketchy though. Folks at Gizmodo write that they received the following response when they contacted Sprint for a Nexus One handset

Not very convincing, but sure gives an indication that something’s cooking.
