What's more interesting is that for all the shouting and yelling about new products/apps/etc at MWC, not a single one is available TODAY, for me to buy/download/use.

From Samsung and HTC's new hardware to Windows Phone 7 to TAT's new Android homescreen to SPB's Mobile Shell 5, NOTHING is available right now. It's all at least a month or two away.

Nokia, who didn't shout about anything, really (save for MeeGo), could *easily* announce a phone next week at some private Nokia-only event and start shipping it a week later - much to the chagrin of the other companies that spent MILLIONS on their MWC presence.

Granted, history doesn't really indicate Nokia *will* do this, but the point is, they COULD.

I mean, currently the company doesn't have a single smartphone that's been announced and isn't shipping, save for perhaps the 16GB version of the X6, which doesn't really count, IMO. They're due for an announcement, and if they are able to ship it quickly, they'll actually have the cheaper upper hand.
