Mobile World Congress has officially kicked off in Barcelona, Spain and TechRadar, our sister site from across the pond, is there! Journey with us now as we give a quick rundown of this weekend at MWC 2011.
It’s no secret that Apple’s iPad dominates the fledgling tablet market, although Samsung had other plans that didn’t quite work out when they released their Galaxy Tab late last year. Now, Samsung is back at Mobile World Congress with a more worthy followup.
Only yesterday, MacLife.com reported on a story circulating that appeared to show Android-based tablets were becoming a real threat to the iPad’s market dominance. Unfortunately, the sales figures for the dominant Android tablet thus far, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, were not quite accurate.
Samsung has been slowly encroaching on Apple’s iPhone and iPad turf, and now it appears the world’s second largest mobile manufacturer plans to assault Cupertino on a third front with an Android-powered media player at CES.
Apple's recent quarter earnings report showed the enormity of iPhone sales across the globe. Recently though, the device took a bit of a hit in Japan, where a report has the new Samsung Galaxy S as the new number one there.
