Mobile World Congress--Smartphones Wrapup


It was a pleasure covering the Mobile World Congress from a distance. I learned a lot about fact checking and finding multiple sources for stories. I also learned that blogs can be credible and can give you good information. You just have to double-check the facts.

New smartphones were introduced at the Mobile World Congress. A theme this year was the size of smartphones. They are getting bigger! ARM, Mozilla, NVIDIA, Nokia, Asus, and LG launched new smartphones at the Mobile World Congress and it’s safe to say that the default size for most top tiered headsets will be about 5 inches. The 5-inch headsets will replace last year’s default size of 4.7-inch headsets. Some of the smartphones that were introduced ranged from about 5.5-inches to about 4.7 inches.

LG announced its new LG Optimus G Pro Android smartphone at the Mobile World Congress. The phone has a 5.5-inch full HD display screen.

The ZTE Grand S LTE Android smartphone was introduced at the Mobile World Congress. It has a 5-inch display screen.

The Huawei Ascend P2 was introduced and has a 4.7- inch display. Huawei is a Chinese manufacturer. 

Will the bigger smartphones catch on in the U.S? Only time will tell.
