MWC 2012: Schedule of events

MWC 2012: Schedule of events
With MWC 2012 kicking off in just a few days, we though that it wouldn't be a bad idea if we share the schedule for the event with you, so that you know what is going to happen and when. What you'll see below is a schedule of the press conferences, or the official events that will be held by each manufacturer. Note that although you won't see the names of some major players like LG and Samsung below, that doesn't mean that these guys won't be showing anything. Basically, they won't hold any official events, but they will attend and showcase their newest stuff, so don't worry, you'll get your hands-on with that Optimus L7...

Of course, besides these press conferences, there will be a lot of other keynotes taking place at MWC 2012, focused on various topics like the carriers' strategies for emerging markets, the development of the cloud, etc. However, many of those overlap with the new product announcements, so we'll naturally focus on the latter.

Hooray! LG will be coming out with the Optimus 3D Max while ignoring those who bought the Thrill 4G and leaving us on Froyo. Really? Froyo? That came out 2 years ago for my Nexus One. Fool me once, shame on you....

Huawei and ZTE might have something.. I notice that Samsung is....not in the picture. I assume that Google keynote is gonna mention a lot of Motorola since they become official.
