The biggest show of the year for the mobile industry converges every February in Barcelona—MWC Barcelona (formerly known as ), held by the cellular industry group . This is my fourth year attending MWC as an industry analyst and the show always gives me a perspective on the state of the global cellular industry that I might not get otherwise.
At this year’s event, I expect to see smartphones with refreshing new form factors and, because AR and VR companies have become so focused on mobility lately, I predict some important announcements there, as well.
The main focus of the show, though, —without a doubt. Expect announcements from every major network operator in virtually every region. L
