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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
