Mobile World Congress is chugging along at full steam in Barcelona, Spain and TechRadar, our sister site from across the pond, is there! Journey with us now as we give a quick rundown on the third day of MWC 2011.
Wednesday is already a memory in Barcelona, Spain, where this year’s Mobile World Congress is already past the halfway point and winding down on Thursday. Worried that you might have missed some cool announcement or gadget hands-on? Fear not, because our friends at TechRadar are there in full force, and here’s a quick rundown on all of today’s happenings so you don’t miss a single thing.
The iPhone already has it, but the Sonos Controller will soon be coming to Android devices, arriving in the U.K. on March 28 with a free app.
It looks like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor is only scratching the surface of its power with current handsets -- among the quad-core chipset’s feats of strength is support for up to 20 megapixel digital cameras! That’s a lot of pixels...
Maybe you want Android, but you don’t want the hassle of a monthly wireless bill. Apparently, that’s why Samsung created the Galaxy Mini, and TechRadar has a look.
Was it recorded in “Dubly”? If so, you’ll soon have devices to take advantage of, as Dolby Digital Plus is set to improve the audio output of key handsets in the near future.
Get a hands-on look at the refreshed Incredible, which HTC is positioning between their Desire and Desire HD handsets.
At last year’s Mobile World Congress, the HTC Desire was the belle of the ball. So how does the sequel stack up at this year’s show? You’ll have to read on to know for sure.
You didn’t think that TechRadar would leave MWC 2011 without getting their hands on the new HP Pre 3, did you?
Forget the debate over software keyboards versus hardware keyboards -- Snapkeys 2i wants you to throw out the keyboard altogether.
More Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet madness, this time from Acer -- and one of the few tablets at this year’s MWC 2011 to embrace a smaller form factor. Seriously, maybe Apple CEO Steve Jobs was right -- 10-inch tablets are everywhere this year!
ViewSonic may not get the same attention that its rivals do, but that isn’t stopping them from throwing their hat into the tablet ring in a big way.
In case you were worried about further Android fragmentation with 3.0 Honeycomb being exclusive to tablets, Google CEO Eric Schmidt claims that the platform will merge in the near future.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Take a popular handset, strip out the cellular radios and release it. But we’re not talking about Apple’s iPod touch -- it turns out Samsung is taking a page from the same playbook with the new Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0 Smart Player.
With this year’s show three-quarters over, TechRadar takes a look at which tablets will likely fare best when they hit the market.
LG isn’t about to sit idly by and watch Motorola, Samsung and others have all the fun with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. TechRader has some hands-on video with the company’s new 8.9-inch heir to the iPad throne.
They may be polite Canadians, but Blackberry maker Research in Motion doesn’t appreciate being dismissed by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, who considers his new love-fest with Windows Phone 7 part of a “three horse race” which also includes iOS and Android -- and not Blackberry.
Get an up-close look at HTC’s latest low-cost Android handset, which TechRadar gives a pretty enthusiastic thumbs up.
See how MWC 2011 wraps up with Thursday’s thrilling final installment!
