OK everything’s happening so fast so I decided to just post it in full here. I got this from Nick of SMART not via a press release but, well, via Facebook. Touche? Note: Globe and SUN Cellular are not part of this promo. The details are not final as SMART is still in the finishing … Continue reading Facebook announces free or discounted messaging services, SMART Communications sole PH telco in program
Straight from the camera of Jim Ayson, here’s a rather interesting video he took of a Samsung ad on the bridgeway of the convention center for Mobile World Congress 2012. It’s been a year since I was last in Barcelona for the Netphone launch and seeing these photos and videos brings about a tech nostalgia … Continue reading Samsung congratulates SMART for LTE Networks at Mobile World Congress 2012 😉
Despite being the venue for telcos and everything wireless, the irony of it all was that Internet in Barcelona was a tad crappy. I guess that’s what happens when you have 60,000 people trying to connect at the same time. You should have seen the behind the scenes — my blog posts were written in … Continue reading The irony with MWC ’11 was …
You’ve probably read the news that the XPERIA Play running Android 2.3 will also be a ‘Playstation accredited’ phone. You know what? Even if you aren’t into gaming, the XPERIA Play is actually a really good phone by itself. Huge screen, thin, and it just so happens to be able to play very nice games. … Continue reading Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play feels pretty good to hold. Hope the games deliver!
Andi and I walked into Hall 1 to officially start our MWC ’11 sojourn. After ogling after some booth babes (a post reserved for another time), my eyes met a tiny booth with a very familiar bird sitting on the counter. Yup it’s the ROVIO booth. Rather humble actually. All eyes were on us as … Continue reading Day 1: Angry Birds Stuffed Toys and Schwag
The organizers and administration have really cool MWC 2011 pins. They’re on video! Here’s what they look like!
Wait, it’s not a booth. It’s a portable office!
Why is TOEI here? Maybe because of this:
I really had to take a photo of HP’s ‘Let’s Do Amazing’ tagline. It’s waiting to be meme-ed. On another note, webOS tablet tomorrow!
There’s only one thing we want from BlackBerry and that’s the PlayBook. They have it. The last photo shows some guys doing a technical demo before the big day.
The Samsung booth is huge. They’re showcasing everything with full force. But the main showcase is twofold: the newly updated Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which puts it head on with the Motorola Xoom (since both are running Android 3.0 Honeycomb) and the Samsung Galaxy S II. More of this at MWC ’11 later!
Passing by the LG booth during construction, I was able to hang for a bit to see the fabrications they were putting up. Yup. 8.9 inches ladies and gents. That’s the Optimus Pad. Protect your Intel core i7 laptop from online threats using a comprehensive firewall software and an extensive ESET security software.
EDIT: Latest posts are below! Scroll down for more! To make it easier to digest the event, I’m creating a post that summarizes all MWC-related coverage between myself and Andi9. This will be updated daily. 🙂 Follow me on Twitter @jayvee for live updates from the floor. DAY ZERO SMART announces Netphone running Android 2.2 … Continue reading TLDR: Running Summary of MWC 2011
EDIT: Found the app! Courtesy of Miss Google Earth Philippines, Aileen Apolo-De Jesus I was able to get a sneak peek into the Google Android booth before the conference. I must say, this is THE booth to visit for MWC 2011. They’ve practically got everything ‘Android’ here including schwag, phones, tablets (yes they have the … Continue reading Day 0: Peek into Google’s Booth and launch of “Androidify Yourself” personalized avatars
