As the Mobile World Congress is a platform for the technology giants to announce new launches as well as showcase their products, it may occur to some that it is only meant for the big names, but it is really not that as several not so big companies also use this platform to showcase their innovation to the world market, this makes the MWC 2013 a truly global platform for innovative new products. As far as innovation is concerned, last year, the Samsung Galaxy Note and Asus Padfone had managed to merge the boundary between a smartphone and a tablet and this trend is still followed in the ongoing MWC. However, this time it is still more apparent that the tablets are here to stay.
The recently completed MWC 2013 is a stage which is crowded by high profile announcements as well as the emerging ground of the first mobile device manufacturers making their debuts in this year's tablet lineup.
Generally, outside Apple’s iPad, the tablet market is ruled by Google's Android mobile operating system. The latest and the most popular being the 4.2 "Jelly Bean," it is expected to power most of this year's major tablets. Even HP has caught up with the Android bandwagon as its experiment with WebOS failed on the HP Touchpad. On the other hand, LG has taken the opportunity to gain its rights on WebOS to use its technology, but the company contemplates to use it for the smart TVs and not tablets.
Needless to say, there are innumerable devices on display at MWC Barcelona and sometimes it can really get puzzling. The new and innovative devices at this year's MWC are pushing the boundaries, and some can really make one wonder whether it is a phone or a tablet or an amalgamation of both.
There are tablets that can make voice calls such as the Asus Fonepad and phones that can act as tablets like the Asus Padfone. Name it and you have it all at the MWC.
Smartphones have become a necessity in today's digital age. Be it browsing the web or connecting with you...
