Nokia dominated coverage of MWC says study
An analysis conducted of tweets containing the hashtags #MWC, #MWC13, and #MWC2013 before and during MWC 2013 revealed that Nokia was the most talked about brand name during that period. The study was comprised of 7,260 tweets sent out by 619 bloggers, journalists and analysts and 419 other media outlets from February 18th (1 week before MWC opened) through the last day of the show on February 28th.

Nokia did introduce a number of new models like the Nokia Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia 301, Nokia 105 and the Nokia Asha 310 and Nokia Asha 205. Number two was Samsung despite the Korean manufacturer's position on the sidelines during the show. Still, with the Samsung Galaxy S IV set to be introduced on March 14th in the Big Apple and with a huge event happening in Times Square, the manufacturer remains on everyone's mind.

Lumia received more mentions than Windows Phone
While Android was positioned as number three, the still in beta Firefox OS is making waves as Firefox was number five. During the show, Sony announced that it would give a Firefox OS ROM to developers or owners of its low end Sony Xperia E Android model. The open web based software is based on HTML5 and other web standards and just might catch on with manufacturers and carriers trying to bust up the iOS-Android duopoly. LG was fourth while upstart Chinese smartphone manufacturers Huawei and ZTE were eighth and tenth respectively.

The mystery over which chip is in the ZTE Grand Memo played a part in the Grand Memo name finishing 26. The Chinese manufacturer at first insisted that it was the first phone to use Qualcomm's new high end Snapdragon 800 inside while Qualcomm said that it was the Snapdragon 600 in the phone. At the end of the day, it turned out that there will be various versions of the phone. Apple and the iPhone name came in 24th and 40th respectively while BlackBerry, trying to become relevant again with BlackBerry 10, was listed at 38.
