As the Mobile World Congress has literally morphed into the Everything Connected Show, the stuff we spotted on the show floor this year tend toward the universal.
What we saw ranged from Ford Motors’ foldable “connected” electric bicycle to connected car keys (NXP’s NFC chip inside an iPhone cover), a Project Ara Phone, M2M network technology and lots of slideware for the still nebulous 5G network.
Oh, and then, VR booth tours. Why people come to an actual booth at a trade show to get the booth tour in virtual reality remains a mystery.
While we’ve covered a few big announcements at the show (or before the show), the following pages are devoted to small and curious things encountered at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
A common thread is a “connected life” – term talked to death at this show (or any other trade show these days) – that covers cars, cities, mobile devices and network infrastructure.
