Huawei’s bulging MWC sack confirmed: smartwatch, smartphone, two tablets

Huawei’s bulging MWC sack confirmed: smartwatch, smartphone, two tabletsAs is often the case at these trade show thingies, we’re starting to get a pretty clear idea of what to expect at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, with the Samsung Galaxy S5 looking set to steal the show.

For what it’s worth, Chinese manufacturer Huawei (say: Way-wey) will be in attendance too, bringing with it a smartwatch, a smartphone and two tablets.

That’s the good word over on The Wall Street Journal’s Digits blog, with credit seemingly going to a Huawei spokeswoman. Lovely.

Unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot of detail to go on at this stage. And when I say “not a whole lot of”, what I really mean is “no”.

Oh, one thing we are told is that we shouldn’t expect the Huawei Ascend P7. It’ll be launched at a separate event later this year. Brilliant.

I’ll go out on a limb and suggest a Huawei Ascend D3. Er, assuming it’s not already a real thing. Or how about a Windows Phone-fuelled Huawei Ascend W3?

One of the tablets could very well be the Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0, which I scribbled about around a week ago. It sounds surprisingly impressive, and could shift a fair few units if the price is right.

As for the smartwatch, you'll forgive me for assuming that this thing probably won't set the world on fire. We're still waiting for the Apple iWatch to come along and make the whole smartwatch thing credible (sorry, other manufacturers).

MWC 2014 gets underway on February 24.
