0. phoneArena 18 Feb 2013, 09:56 posted on

It's the same every year - before we know it, MWC is knocking on the door. The biggest mobile-related technology tradeshow is now just a few days away, promising to unleash hordes of new handsets and tablets against us. Well, you know what? We're fully armed and ready to face this assault. In fact, we'll be heading to Barcelona later this week so that we can find out what our dear hardware manufacturers have prepped up for us. And make no mistake, there will be tons of intriguing devices worth seeing...

P.S.
Why countdown timer on PhoneArena.com shows different time than countdown timer on official HTC webpage (difference in one hour) ???

Here's what to expect in the mobile world:

Apple to maintain current marketshare, death of BB and Windows phone.

Oh, do they talk about market share in the MWC?
If that's so...here's what i expect, Decline in Apple marketshare to sea-level...rise in WP inching closer to Android and BB slowly making up for the lost time.

You must be kidding me...i never meant it literally!

I sincerely hope it doesn't look like this iphone/BBZ10 chimera on the leaked photos.

I have a really really good feeling about HTC One's impact on the market..

Lumia has even greater impact. Pureview lumia will be the main focus of mwc this year.

Agree completely. Pureview 41 mp phone will dwarf everything including HTC. They (HTC) has lost most of its fan base and most just don't carry the name EVO

Galaxy S IIII (4 I's) ??
Maybe you mean Galaxy S IV, correct your roman numbers
and anyways Xperia is a great device but does not hold power.

In my opinion, the Galaxy S IV will only show off specs and a few new features here and there, but I see no redesign in the OS until KLP is announced and release. That's what I look for nowadays because Quad Core flagship phones are now becoming standard. OS is now the game changer from how I see it.

I am super excited for the HTC One. However the Huawei phone in picture 8 looks great too. I love how they lowered the screen to make using on screen keys make sense. Hopefully this catches on.

There're two Xperia Z available as demo at the Sony store, here in Paris. The salesman told me it'll be on sale next week, which means this week.

I hope that if Asus introduces a new Padfone that it will be comming to US carriers this time. I love the idea of having a phone and tablet.

I'm only interested in what NOKIA has to offer ,, hopping it'll Steal all the lights with an unrevealed new Stunning innovation, although the Pureview Lumia is gonna be absolutely Awesome ....
but i mean ; something completely new & different which will BLOW everybody away , just like the 41-MP thing did last year .

I hope Sony will announce the world wide availability of Xperia Z & ZL just like they did last year with Xperia S & Ion besides introducing some mid-range handsets.
