Prelude to Mobile World Congress 2012
James Rosewell and Mark Bridge report from Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. In today's programme they discuss some of the pre-show news and also look forward to Monday's events.
Huawei has announced the Ascend D quad, described as “the world’s fastest smartphone”.
It’s powered by the company’s own quad-core processor, which apparently reaches 1.5GHz, runs on the Android 4.0 operating system and is equipped with Huawei’s proprietary power management system, providing up to 30% power saving compared to other devices. The 1800mAh battery is claimed to last for up to two days under normal usage.
Sony Mobile Communications - formerly Sony Ericsson but now wholly-owned by Sony - has announced two new smartphones on the eve of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Joining the Xperia S in the company’s Xperia NXT smartphone series are the Xperia P and Xperia U.
