This month sees the World Mobile Congress return to the Fira de Barcelona at Montjüic. From the 15th to 18th February, some of the biggest names in Mobile technology take over the city for the 4th year running.
Anyone and everyone who is someone in the world of Mobile Phones and technology is attending this year. Of course, many are eager to see how Google will probably steal the show with the launch of it's Nexus One handset, as it did in Las Vegas recently. In fact, Google are obviously taking things really seriously by sending CEO and "Do No Evil" Eric Schmidt as a keynote speaker, alongside the CEO's of the likes of Ericsson, Huawei, Vodafone and many other big players.
It's said that the New Phone - technically not a Google phone at all as it's manufactured by HTC - will be the iPhone killer, which to be honest I'm a bit sick of hearing. This is about the 4th or 5th iPhone killer we've had launch on the market, isn't it? I don't care either, as I've got a BlackBerry!! The Nexus One is not even available yet in Spain, and if reports across the net are anything to go by, the customer service and after-care attention leaves a lot to be desired!! Do you like the look of the new phone? And are you queuing up to get one? Apparently Vodafone will have the phone, but they may not be the only one. We'll wait and see.
