Sony Xperia Z4 Tabletony, XFor fans of the Xperia series of tablets, a new update is hitting shelves. At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sony has introduced the latest Xperia Z4, which will be even thinner, lighter, and maintaining many of the same features that made its predecessor such a hit.

Of all of the high end tablets on the market, Xperia has managed to impress consistently. The Xperia Z4 already looks to be continuing on the tradition, being more lightweight than its already incredibly weightless former model, as well as waterproof for added security. But it is the specifications that give it the real edge.

Huawei E5786 MiFiWith just a few hours before the official start of the Mobile World Congress 2014, Huawei officially announced E5786, world’s fastest MiFi. For starters, a MiFi is actually a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.

This little new device supports 4G LTE download speeds up to 300Mbps and upload speeds of 100Mbps, which is quite amazing knowing that is pretty hard to find a device reaching these crazy speeds in theory.

The device looks nice and it comes with some impressive specs besides being fast. Huawei MiFi comes with a HiSilicon LTE Cat6 chipset that runs on a powerful 28 nm HPM Cortex A9 processor, which is already popular on a lot of smartphones.

The Mobile World Congress is not attractive anymore

Mobile World Congress 2013Over the past years, we’ve usually wrote articles from Mobile World Congress. The event takes place every year in February at Barcelona and it’s populated with gadgets and announcements. Unfortunately, year-over-year event’ glow started to fade away and it doesn’t have the same interest it had in the past. It’s not a surprise since companies started to announce their products by organizing their own events.

If I remember well, two years ago Samsung was unveiling Galaxy S II smartphone, during a MWC 2011 conference. This year was different. Sure, there were some released, but none of them were very important. I appreciate what LG did this year at MWC, because they had the courage to make some interesting announcements: they bought WebOS from HP and plan to incorporate it in Smart TVs, they brought Optimus F7 and F5 phones and demoed a 4K UltraHD streaming from a phone to a TV.

In other words, not pretty much happened during MWC. Here’s what was interesting:

The biggest release from MWC 2011: Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy S IIThis year Mobile World Congress is almost finished and the biggest news is that Samsung had announced the second version of Galaxy S called Galaxy S II.

The toughness of an operating system (Android 2.3 Gingerbread) should be combined appropriately with a lot of factors though, such as hardware, software, and design, so as to be able to make an impact in the more and more crowded smartphone market.

Samsung Galaxy S II tackles the design aspect by squaring all of the corners at its outer body so some might say “it looks like an immitation of the similarly squre iPhone 4“.No one knows exactly what was going on inside the designers room at Samsung, but iPhone-ing inclination in design had been evident indeed as far as the older Galaxy S, the body of which was “similar” to iPhone 3GS. However, that inclination is not relevant in the eyes of the field reporters that reported the launching ceremony from Barcelona.

HTC unveils at MWC 2011 three new smartphones: Wildfire S, Desire S and Incredible S

HTC Wildfire SHTC announced at MWC during their press conference the release of three new smartphones, each one having special features, but all three have the same operating system, Android. HTC Desire S, Wildfire S and Incredible S are the smartphones that they expect to be very popular as their previous versions ruled the market and faced too few complains to mention and they are likely to keep their perfection in the coming phones too.

Along Android OS, another common thing found between all these phones is the use of HTC Sense UI, which we all know is the HTC customization layer that fits perfectly the Android. HTC are going to ship Wildfire S and Desire S phones with the 2.3 version of Android which is also named as Gingerbread and Incredible S will come to the market loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo but will support an upgrade to 2.3 version ‘in the near future’.
