Mobile World Congress wrapped up Thursday in Barcelona, Spain and TechRadar, our sister site from across the pond, was there! Journey with us now as we give a quick rundown on the fourth and final day of MWC 2011.
Mobile World Congress 2011 is now just a memory, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss all of the events from the final day on Thursday -- our friends at TechRadar were there in full force, and here’s a quick rundown on all of today’s news so you don’t miss a single thing.
Graphic chip maker Nvidia was on hand to give TechRadar a preview of their new quad-core processor code-named “Project Kal-El,” which will fly into products in late 2011. (Did you catch the Superman reference we just did there?)
You’ve already seen TechRadar’s hands-on review of LG’s entry to the tablet wars, but you’ll have to wait a few months before it lands on U.K. shores -- and no word yet on when it will wash up on U.S. shores.
Near-field communication for mobile phones is set to explode this year (especially if Apple adopts it for the iPhone 5 as rumored), but Samsung’s head of product management for the U.K. claims it’s an expensive proposition.
Facebook is taking over the world, and soon it could take over smartphones as well -- assuming HTC rules the world, that is.
Lest you think that Motorola is planning to sit out the near-field communication party, the company told TechRadar that it’s going down sooner than later.
While LG clearly thinks that 3D will rock on mobile devices, Samsung isn’t quite sure, claiming they “haven’t seen a need” for it as yet.
TechRadar has already groped HP’s TouchPad and Pre 3 at MWC 2011, but they couldn’t leave before giving the same tender lovin’ care to the smallest member of the webOS family.
In the battle for GPS navigation dominance on mobile phones, ALK’s CoPilot Live is a formidable opponent. TechRadar took some time out to see what’s new with the latest CoPilot Live 9.
Last but not least, get the condensed version of all of MWC 2011’s highlights on one handy TechRadar page.
And that wraps up Mobile World Congress for 2011 -- TechRadar will see you there next year!
