Every February the mobile industry gets together in Barcelona, Spain for Mobile World Congress.

It is one of the biggest trade shows on earth and collects everyone in the industry from infrastructure and backbone manufacturers to all the big service providers and handset makers right down to the smallest mobile application companies.

Internet of Things technology was one of the big themes with some wondering just when we will start to see real enterprise use of the technology.

But research released by HPE’s Aruba Networks at the show showed surprisingly high enterprise use of IoT and even more surprising satisfaction with what is still a relatively new technology.

Of these 56 per cent are managing lighting and air conditioning systems, and the majority of enterprises are using IoT for location-based services.

Unusually IoT seems to be outperforming the hype and business expectations.

We saw an early concept 5G robot that mimics a human's movements.

Watch the video to see which other crazy innovations impressed us.

4G skyrocketed smartphone sales and 5G – with the promise of blazing speeds, reliability and enhanced responsiveness – is taking it to a new dimension. As infrastructure grows at a steady pace, 5G enabled smartphones, for now, are just about doing what 4G phones do, only a little quicker; but that’s enough for 5G smartphones to be the talk of … Continue reading

As we speak, the second big tech event of the year is going on in Barcelona.

The Mobile World Congress is where all the big phone companies (and others) come together to show off everything they didn't feel like showing us at CES.

That means new flagships, new gadgets, and lots of tech innovations that the general public won't get to see anytime soon.

If you want to stay up to date with all the news and announcements, but can't be dealing with scrolling through our blogroll, then we have you covered.

Over the course of the next few days we'll be updating this post with all out MWC content, and since Editor O'Malley is on the job in Barcelona we'll have plenty for you to enjoy.

MWC 2017: Samsung announces two new gadgets that come in the box with other products

The future of mobile is here – or, at least, it’s here in prototype form, or behind glass, or as promising roadmap with little to show for it today.

Mobile World Congress 2019 isn’t immune to trade show hype, and this year there’s a double-whammy of 5G and foldable phones to stoke expectations.

Features are fine, but framing is everything

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 wasn’t, officially at least, announced at Mobile World Congress this year.

Still, the new Android flagship is the clear specter looming over handset announcements from every other company.

Samsung may not have been first to offer it – indeed Huawei was, with the Mate 20 Pro, back in October last year – but it did position it better.

Mobile World Congress is right around the corner, and all sorts of smartphones are expected to be announced.

Apparently, Motorola has a bit of an untended leak on its hands—Spanish retailer Ktronix accidentally went live with press pictures and specs of some upcoming budget smartphones.

The page was quickly taken down, but nothing like this ever disappears from the Internet, and in this case, some Twitter users , managed to snag some pictures.

The thing about a good idea is that, all too often, someone else has had it before you.

That certainly seems to be the case with Vivo’s attention-grabbing Apex concept smartphone from Mobile World Congress this past week.

Problem is, it looks like Essential got there first.

Apple’s iPhone X and Essential’s eponymous smartphone opted for a notch.

Each has a cut-out in the upper portion of the touchscreen, within which the front-facing camera resides.

As a design compromise it has been the subject of no shortage of criticism – not to mention seemingly starting a trend, with a number of other Android phones shown off at MWC 2018 with notches of their own – but there’s another, more complex fix out there.

Good news for fans of finely crafted, exquisitely detailed smartphones - sources in South Korea say production is about to start on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, putting them on course for an official unveiling at the Mobile World Congress expo in Barcelona at the end of February.

ETNews reports that as soon as the New Year celebrations are ended, the wheels are going to begin to turn in earnest as far as cranking out the Galaxy S9 phones goes.

In other words, everything's right on course as Samsung looks to wow us with its 2018 offerings.

One of the upgrades that parts suppliers are hinting at this year is an upgraded, 'stacked' motherboard, similar to the one used in the iPhone X.

As well as enabling the usual speed and efficiency improvements we've come to expect each year, the board also means there's more room inside the phone for a bigger battery.

With the S9 and S9 Plus reveal now probably less than two months away, we've heard plenty about what to expect from Samsung's next top-end handsets.

LG will reveal updated editions of its K8 and K10 phones at Mobile World Congress 2018, the company has announced.

The update promises to bring premium features to the mid-tier phones, including improved cameras with high-speed auto focus and noise reduction for better low-light photography.

The phones will be available in three new colours: Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, and Terra Gold.

"LG's 2018 K Series range of smartphones is focused on delivering even more value to consumers looking for the right device that fits their lifestyle and needs," said Ha Jeung-uk, senior vice president and business unit leader for LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

Both models will roll out across Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East this year.

MWC is all about slabs with screens – and this year's Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona was packed with head-turning smartphones, tablets, and a fair bit more to boot.

LG unveiled its long-awaited G6, a massively promising return to form after last year's experimental G5, while Sony's Xperia XZ Premium wowed us with high-end tech and Nokia seemed to equally delight and perplex by reviving the stone-cold classic 3310 dumbphone.

True, MWC isn't the end-all, be-all for early-year announcements, as Samsung will showcase the Galaxy S8 later this month and HTC surely has something afoot, but it's still ground zero for a lot of the big tech that we'll fondle and admire throughout 2017.

We've already handed out our best-of-show awards, but if you haven't been paying attention the past few days, here's everything you missed.

Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which ended last week, used to be all about new handsets and consumer gadgets.

There were enterprise announcements but they were all about the big names which provide the technology to run the mobile networks.

MWC is now about enterprise technology and enabling the security to allow business to make the most of mobile phones, tablets and other devices.

Increasingly it is not even about mobile phones any more.

There are so many other devices connecting via mobile networks like Internet of Things devices for running logistics systems, car sensors and location-based services that phones are taking a back seat.

Aside from the news-grabbing announcements the show is a great example of the other change in enterprise technology in recent years.

Microsoft is holding a press event at Mobile World Congress next month, and it looks like we’ll get some details on HoloLens 2.

The software giant will hold its event on Sunday February 24th at 5PM CET (11AM ET), and CEO Satya Nadella, Technical Fellow Alex Kipman, and CVP Julia White will all be in attendance.

Kipman’s name indicates this will likely be a HoloLens 2 event, given his close involvement with this project.

Microsoft has typically avoided Mobile World Congress in recent years, after killing off Windows Phone.

The company used to hold annual press events for Windows Mobile and Windows Phone updates at Mobile World Congress, alongside mobile device announcements.

This is an unusual return to Barcelona for Microsoft.
