At this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia (now owned by HMD Global) has done something it hasn't done in a long time: It innovated.

HMD Global has sweetened the deal by offering a $100 discount on the phone in the first week of sales, bringing the price down to $599. The price goes back up to $699 on March 11.

Mashable's Ray Wong had some hands-on time with the PureView 9, and he found some of its features impressive, though the phone overall lacked polish. Hopefully Nokia can iron out the kinks in time for the U.S. launch.
