MWC – MadCatz

Are you a gamer on mobile devices? Do you get frustrated with having fiddly controls on the phone? If you have answered yes to either of these questions then you may want to point your browser to Madcatz. They have got some really good-looking gaming controllers which

MWC – KAZAM, 21 month report.

I’m from the UK, so a local company operating in the mobile space is always going to be on my radar. KAZAM are definitely on that list, and we first mentioned them way back in June 2013. They launched a few days earlier, at the start of

MWC – Ford looking to solve your city transport problems

In London our underground system works very well considering the age and complexity of it. People commute in and out of the city and leave their cars in expensive car-parks or, if you run a business servicing the city, you have to try and get your big

MWC – Dell and their Skinny tablet

Dell are here at MWC 2015 and whilst some of you may be thinking that it is odd for this to be case it isn’t really. The reason why it is not that odd is that although they are currently not making phone hardware, Dell still have

MWC – Sandisk release new memory solutions

We went to visit Sandisk today and during our time on the stand we came across a few devices that were really interesting. So lets get into them. First up we have the real unexpected surprise a 200gb Ultra microSDXC, which is worlds highest capacity MicroSD card.

MWC – YotaPhone 2 becomes available in the USA

It’s via Indiegogo and not a network, but you can get your name down to have the two-faced smartphone in the summer. There’ll be “exclusive pricing” for “early adopters” (even though the phone is already built and selling elsewhere) and the campaign will begin in April. So,

MWC – Doro announce a smartphone for Blind People

The other day we went to see Doro and they showed us a variety of phones designed for the elderly, one of the phones was the Doro 820 Claria. It is a smartphone designed for deaf people, it is controlled via a touchscreen, a custom launcher, a special

MWC – giffgaff to range the HTC One M9 too

Some hours ago, or possibly days (I’m not totally sure as Mobile World Congress week is always pretty insane at the best of time), we mentioned that giffgaff are to offer the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Now they’ve announced that the HTC One M9 will

MWC – HTC One M8 to become the HTC One M8s

If I’m honest it’s difficult to know exactly where to start with this one. I mean, the HTC One M8 is still a fantastic handset, regardless of the HTC One M9. However, just a couple of days after the HTC One M9 launch, there’s news via

Three to offer Honor 6+ exclusive

Three have just announced they will exclusively offer the Honor 6+ on a monthly contract here in the UK, away from having to purchase the phone outright. We’ve already had a hands-on with this thanks to the guys in Barcelona. The Honor 6+ is a device not

MWC – Hands on with the Honor 6 Plus

The Honor and Huawei branding is a little confusing. The Honor range was “meant” to be their budget range but this the Honor 6 Plus is a gorgeous device, it is similar to the Huawei Ascend G7 in design. But overall this is higher spec’d and built

MWC – Lenovo new tablet range demo and hands on

Lenovo have been busy at MWC 2015 and have launched the updates to their mid-tier Android Tablet range and a new Windows 8.1 entry-level tablet. I have already covered the tablets in a previous article here so we will just dive straight in with the video demo

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 – DTS Technology and Headphones X

Do you want to look as happy as this woman in the picture above? Well, now you can. DTS Technology have just announced that they are rolling out their Headphone:X custom audio experience to some major Chinese brands including Huawei and Gionee (Kazam in the UK). It

MWC – Tesco Mobile to take on the Doro 820 Mini

We had a look at the Doro 820 Mini just moments ago, and if you’re interested in getting one, Tesco Mobile have confirmed that they will be selling it. Yes, it’s for the elderly, but Tesco are keen to point out the “beginners” who might be interested

MWC – Hands on with the Doro Liberto 820 Mini

Yesterday Doro announced the Liberto 820 Mini and today we got to have a play with it and the services offered by Doro. So to recap the Liberto 820 Mini is an Android based device for the elderly or for people who want a really easy to

MWC – KAZAM announce the Tornado 552L

We’ve managed to get a first hands-on with the new KAZAM Tornado 552L, which was only announced minutes ago. It’s at the top of their range and carries on from the KAZAM Tornado 348, which had a 4.8″ screen. This, the KAZAM Tornado 552L, has a 5.2″

MWC – MHL bringing Smartbook to the market

Do you remember the Motorola Atrix back in the day. It was a brilliant concept but was fundamentally flawed. Palm also tried to get into this space with the Folio which never went any further than the R&D labs. Well today I discovered that MHL have picked
