One of the largest mobile trade shows on planet earth, Mobile World Congress, took centre stage last week in one of Europe’s beautiful cities, Barcelona, Spain. The annually held showpiece took place at the Fira Gran Via a convention centre that can handle over 60 000 attendees.
The event drew people from across the globe and never failed to deliver plenty of fodder for both consumers and the enterprises.
Wireless networking companies such as Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks and their carrier partners Vodafone and Telefonica dazzled those in attendance with their new mobile broadband technology. The obvious catch of the event was smartphone manufacturers announcing their latest enticing offerings that are to keep consumers connected.
Samsung revealed its latesttablet the Galaxy note 8.0 an offering described as bigger, faster and has the capabilities of sharing more content. It is expected that the device will keep its rival Apple’s iPadMini on its toes. On the other side manufacturers such as LG, Huawei, Sony and Nokia also announced their latest devices which are to flood the fiercely competitive phone market.
Now that major players have announced their offerings, let’s see who will rule the market, but don’t expect much change because between you and I, we know who will rule.
