MWC – Your next smartphone could have a sense of smell

Each year I come to Mobile World Congress with the same thought. “Where else can smartphones go?” Yes, there’s better cameras, faster processors and sharper screens, but it’s just quicker with incremental changes. It’s not always new technology and new ideas. After meeting Elliptic Labs, who have

MWC – GUESS who do smartwatches

MWC – giffgaff to range the HTC One M9 too

MWC – HTC One M8 to become the HTC One M8s

Three to offer Honor 6+ exclusive

MWC – Hands on with the Honor 6 Plus

MWC – Global Mobile Awards. Winners announced.

Believe it or not, it’s the 20th Global Mobile Awards ceremony this year. Hosted by John Cleese there were no awards for HTC this year and instead the “Best Smartphone” award went to joint winners – the Apple iPhone 6 and the LG G3. Why those two?

MWC – Full hands-on with the HTC One M9

During the big HTC One M9 event we only had a brief and very sweaty few minutes with the device on video. Sadly, even when we went to the stand today, there wasn’t any HTC staff to give us a demo or show the device off. So,

MWC – Pebble Time Steel announced

I’m currently trying to find ways to tell James that I’ve “accidentally” kept his Pebble watch. I’ve been here in Barcelona since Saturday, it’s not been charged once and it’s received endless notifications during that time. Email, calendar notifications and tweets all pop up and I’m just
