MWC 2010: Live Report
New year, new Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The paradise for mobile related media – the place, where almost all major companies gather to introduce the devices and services that will make the news months ahead. We are covering the event live for the fifth consecutive year now, so expect to see our first-hand impressions of the hot phones that make an appearance here. Do not forget to update this page so that you can keep track with the latest stuff from MWC 2010.

Want to be the first to know about what is new? Follow us on Twitter or Google Buzz. We will post there some short info lines while we are preparing our full news and hands-on coverage.

------------

We've already arrived in Barcelona. As soon as we got off the plane, we met the new Samsung Wave in a huge billboard. A picture is worth a thousand words, so we wouldn't talk much. Wave is the first Bada OS phone and is expected to be officially announced tomorrow. Expect our hands-on with this pretty smartphone with AMOLED screen and 1GHz processor. We cross our fingers it will not be the only Bada phone, don't you? There are rumors that Windows Mobile 7 will be announced during the show. The ads we saw are not as descriptive as these of Wave, but we expect to see some news on Monday. Stay tuned!

And here's the schedule of the interesting events that will take place, so that you know when to check back with us.

WTF.... How do you go to talking about Samsung Wave which is a BADA OS phone on a Windows Article???? I just watched two vidoes on this OS and it is amazing..... Can't wait for this to come out later this year.... Might be switching from my Droid back to WinMo

Broken, It isn't fair to yell at galen. This string of updates is numbered 1-7 so far and WinMo7 is the last, as of right now. So if you want to post on any of the previous pages, it shows up here under 7. I am sure the next update on page 8, will have people confused as to why yuo are talking aboutt a WinMo7 series topic for something else... That being said. I am excited for the WM7 series to be released. I have been waiting (as elig to upgrade by extending my contract) since february of last year(2009). I am pretty sure VZW hates me for not being under contract. But I want a "worth it to me" upgrade. This would be worth it. I am sad it won'y come out until november of this year, as my phone is on its last leg. I want a WinMo phone with a snapdragon, tegra, and 512 ram.... HD2 or TG02

Nice point on that. Not something I noticed. Phone Arena must fix this :-)

Oh and btw, a buddy of mine who works for MS, said it should be out sometime in September to compete with anything Apple or Google puts out. So I'll be exicted to see what is going to happen. :-)

competition is good for everyone. it took this long for MS to wake up and quit trying to pawn the same 1990's crap on us. maybe this will be a new life for MS. Im going to be cautious. Sticking with android till MS can show me that its better.. for the longhaul as well. Its hard to beat an open development platform that can change to any manufacturers desire.

I was expecting sooooooooo much more from the VPhone, namely video chat based on what they were talking about in November.
