Consumer electronics, communications, IT and media industries are all transforming, and Nokia is in a key position to drive the transformation with compelling products and superior technological understanding."

At the event, the manufacturers showcased the latest range of handset models. Sony Ericsson showcased J200i, K508i, K700i, S700i. Nokia launched its new series, N9300, N7270, N7280.
