MWC 2013

Drop by for all the latest phone and tablet news from MWC 2013. Every year, the GSMA holds Mobile World Congress, generally referred to as MWC. It’s one of the largest tech shows in the world, and focuses on mobile products like phones and tablets. Given how popular these sectors are these days, it’s a pretty big deal. MWC 2013 is particularly interesting because many of the big tech companies held back products that might in previous years have been outed at CES, another tech show held in Las Vegas. We’ll be out on the show floor, eyeballing all of the latest gear and bringing you previews on all the best bits. Want to know what to look out for? We wrote a feature on all the biggest phones and tablets to expect this year. It’s a healthy crop. Some of the best bits include the super-slick Sony Xperia Z tablet, the rumoured Firefox OS phone from ZTE and the slightly silly-sounding Asus Fonepad. It should hopefully be a good deal less silly than the oddball Asus Padfone, though, as it’s essentially a super-powered, metal-bodied take on the Google Nexus 7. Did you know that Asus actually made the tablet for Google? Mobile World Congress 2013 kicks off on Monday 25 February, and takes place in Barcelona, Spain.

Huawei Ascend P2
Is the 'fastest smartphone in the world' actually the best Android phone to buy?
Sony Xperia Tablet Z
Does Sony make the best 10-inch Android tablet around?
Huawei Ascend G350
Hands-on: A budget Android phone with serious waterproofing power.
Huawei Ascend G510
Is an affordable price tag enough to overlook performance issues?
Motorola Razr HD
Motorola's Razr HD looks sharp thanks to its Kevlar armour and impresses with its long battery life.
ZTE Grand Memo
Hands-on: An Android phone with a giant 5.7-inch screen. Fingers crossed for a bargain price.
Asus Fonepad
The Google Nexus 7, reborn with a metal body and memory card slot.
Alcatel One Touch Star
Hands-on: Alcatel's budget smartphone looks to offer great value for money.
LG Optimus G Pro
Hands-on: the 5.5-inch 1080p screen and 13MP camera impress, but build quality is suspect.
Asus PadFone Infinity
Hands-on: A phone-tablet convertible hybrid. Good, but crazy expansive.
Nokia Lumia 720
A Windows Phone 8 mobile with an affordable price and decent camera.
Nokia Lumia 520
The cheapest Nokia Windows Phone 8 mobile to date. A top bargain.
