As you know, today is over the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, the most important event on mobility around the world. Here more than 75,000 attendees know first hand updates to both new devices and services, applications, and accessories brands. Is the nerve centre of a market in which, every year, is more important for technology.
In Weblogs SL, we have attended the event to tell you first-hand all the news, views, first impressions and references, where the companions of Engadget you have kept informed almost instantly everything what happened in Barcelona. His work covering the event was exceptional, and there you have the details to satisfy your curiosity. To my I would like to tell you everything that has lived here more relaxed way, these sensations, all these days.
However, how do an Apple lover live an event like this? Get a cup of coffee and talk about it.
From the perspective of a user of Apple
Apple, as a corporate decision, does not attend or this event or to any other who is not one of those who organize themselves. The last glimpse of event do not own to which flocked, Macworld Expo, gave way to events organized by the company exactly on the appropriate timing and When they have something to present. They are not adapted to events, they create them when they need them. We know them as keynotes.
Although the new devices called attention, was much heard the question “what will Apple with the iWatch?”
according to ezinesports,That is why that the Mobile World Congress, even without the presence of the company, has had it very present. Significant that even with all the presented novelties, the award for the best tablet of the exhibition is the Air iPad. A sense of “waiting room” in which also is evident, after seeing what the manufacturers have shown here, remains to be seen what Apple proposed for this year 2014 where he still hasn’t said anything. Comments on the “iWatch” Apple or requests for updates to iOS products originally released for Android by Sony or Samsung have been the order of the day.
The Mobile World Congress is a perfect showcase to know the path of the year: as crazy about technology, a product does not have to be Apple to enjoy testing it, reviewing it and sharing the feelings of the ideas in the market of mobility of the marks for this year. And I’d like to share those feelings with you.
The MWC’s “weareables” devices
I have not translated by the way. While writing this article in the press room, talking about translation with partner David Arráez: not to reach an agreement of how we should call it. He told me that even a forum had been opened to discuss the way to refer to them in press.
There is a translation so accurate as the English expression, does not mean that the devices are not coming. On the contrary, the proposals of Sony, Samusung and other manufacturers indicate that quantification is important for brands because it has finished being important to our customers. Sony with its SmartWear presented really attractive bracelets, which cross the barrier of technology to become one more fashionable complement with its colors and textures,.
And now not only is the hardware of these devices: an application that break out this information and both Samsung with its updated S-Health, like Sony with the new Life Log is required (very descriptive name) are already doing so. Even Apple It seems to be preparing for any upcoming release with Healthbook, but that we’ll talk another day.
The most interesting, and one of the devices that most liked in Congress, has been the Samsung Gear Fit. A real hit that enjoyed among the companions of press, even overshadowing the launch of the S5 Galaxy the day of the presentation. Many think that the mistake of Samsung is not to make their products more compatible because not with iOS (I would buy one), but with the rest of the Android range. And esto hasn’t done more to start.
Interesting new features in smartphones
The big not failed to quote, and if we talk about Samsung and their S5 Galaxy, the feeling is that the rumors leading up to its release (screen 2 K, better performance) heated too expectations that ended up taking a toll. Little evolution in design on a mobile which is based on the premises that already sat the S4 last year. It’s funny because esto happened to Apple virtually on every iPhone release, although time has the iPhone become best sellers. Even so, a great mobile that time will tell if it is accepted by the “premium” user Android community.
The Z2 from Sony with its fantastic camera caught attention
One mobile phone which I liked the most was the SSony Xperia Z2. An amazing camera recording videos to 4K, you have to see it to believe it. In addition device occurs in a built design very compact and very lightweight, although being so large 5.2 “screen you can become uncomfortable in hand. But I had a very good pint that will not disappoint at all to the fans of the brand.
Nokia proposals were perhaps the most commented, as the decision to create a mobile with Android just not having access to all Android applications, the Nokia X, more I think a statement of intent than a well-defined product for the user.
On the other hand, had interesting models like what we saw at the booth of Jolla, a Finnish company with a proposal for a different operating system: Sailfish OS, Linux-based and with the ability to use native Android applications. It is based on gestures to navigate and the interface was smooth and quick. Thanks see original alternatives and new ideas of this type.
A 2014 trends and uncertainties
It is clear that the path was defined last year with Smart Watches and quantification devices It will be the basis for this second generation which we have begun to see in the MWC, above all in as unknown devices for brands as its use by the general public. How would they have to be? What they would have to do? And although it seems that watches and bracelets are realized in actual features, the question revolves around “what will have prepared Apple?” (I have heard much in this Congress, and not only journalists).
If we were that draw the strokes of this moment, we could say that for these devices we are in the same situation in which the mobile were pre-iPhone in 2006, in my opinion (even though, I repeat, the fantastic product which believe me Samsung Gear Fit, and that iOS users should feel – for now – a bit of envy).
No tablet stands out but in moving the race is frantic: 2014 promises us a great competition between brands
I have seen very loose the overview of the tablets, there is no clear favorite in the Android world (perhaps the Note… but do not know if they consider it a tablet or what) and although for example I liked much Ubuntu (found me it nicely designed, taking advantage of more space for tablets with very good taste), I think that the overall level isn’t notable by any aspect. Not the case in mobile, where Android has been – and much – batteries and accompanied by powerful hardware it presents very good machines to choose from. If I had to choose one, I would stay with Sony and its Z2.
Importantly, the conclusion to all this, these days, is that the world of technology is moving in unstoppable form and promises to give us many joys and surprises this 2014. We live in a time where there is no mediocre products: brands play all in high competition and thereby, we left always gaining users, who in the end and after, for whom all this is intended.
