I’m currently in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress. I didn’t expect this show to be very well attended this year and on Monday I was beginning to think it might be a waste of time to be here. Tuesday and Wednesday proved me wrong and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The amount of foot traffic, even in the smaller halls, is significant.
The buzz this year has been around mobile applications. The amount of people in this space is mind boggling. How applications will affect our lifestyle was apparent on every 2nd stand. One theme I saw repeated over and over again was “How you can be a journalist armed only with an iPhone”.
This explains the dearth of updates recently as preparing and working a show such as this takes a lot of time.
It’s now time to break down the Accedian stand and try to find a beer so I’m cutting this post short. I hope to have a larger post covering other aspects of this year’s show done by this weekend.
