Mobot’s Big List of Mobile World Congress Stuff

Mobot’s Big List of Mobile World Congress StuffAlright? Wendy Cameraface was having a browse through our Mobile World Congress content (not bad if I do say so myself, considering there are only two of us here) this morning and remarked that there's a lot to take in. I kinda understand where the little lady is coming from, in the sense that we’ve got hands-on content here, video there, and countless scribbles in between.

Being a gentleman (honest), I hate to see a damsel in distress, so I’ve put together a menu type thing that’s alphabetical by manufacturer. I know, I know; it’s a pretty good idea. Thanks, me.

In an attempt to push the list below the ad for the HTC One X deal (no, I haven't ordered mine just yet), I'll now ramble on for a few lines. Bear with me here. It's just that my poor list was all askew.

I'll be popping back in here to add links to the new content as it appears (feel free to poke me with a virtual stick if I miss something), and little Wendy will be out and about capturing video on an ongoing basis.

There, did that work?

Ahh, job done!

Yeah, like I thought MWC was designed to dull our senses into submission - to whatever Apple want to launch or not launch :p

In all honesty, I care far more about the iPad 3 launch than I do about the HTC One X. The Tegra 3 is "meh" at best and the phone as a whole doesn't really appeal to me for some reason.

To be honest,
the iPad 3 launch doesn't have me all that excited. I'm quite happy when I lay my hands on my BH's iPad 2. Of course, that'll change if I fail to avoid a demo iPad 3 in the local stores....

Phonewise, nothing at MWC 2012 has excited me. Sorry.
Once the 808 is out and people start selling them 2nd-hand, I'm sure I'll try and lay my hands on one. But pffft... I won't mark my calendar for any of the devices announced.
Actually, the Acer CloudMobile may become a nice back-up phone...once Acer actually release it...which will be 2014 judging by the Iconia Smart's launch schedule.

By then it'll be £150 at expansys...

I kinda agree...for some reason mobile tech. doesn't seem as exciting this year as it did last year, maybe that's because my Desire was showing its age whereas my S2 isn't outdated at all really.

I care more about the iPad 3 but that's just in comparison to phones at MWC that haven't excited me at all...I'm more excited about getting that nice bread I bought last week, again, than I am about the iPad or MWC's devices.

I guess you have a point - anyone less up-to-date and in need/want of something new, may find it all very exciting.

I mentioned it elsewhere: it is telling that a Nokia Symbian device was probably the only mass product on show with something "new" to offer. I'm sure there were loads of things on display that we'll only learn about over the next few months - services/accessories etc etc...

I found MWC far more exciting last year, my Snapdragon S1 powered Desire was beginning to struggle to play the latest games and load heavy webpages, my S2 doesn't struggle with anything (apart from the usual Android crashes :p).

I agree with you about the 808 camera, there were literally no rumours about it and it'll genuinely benefit "normal" consumers, it'd be a fine point and shoot on holiday with the family, for example. When the tech finds its way to WP (probably 8 by then), I think we'll see it really take off.
