BARCELONA -- Mobile World Congress 2014 -- 5G flavors were in the air on Wednesday as Light Reading stalked the halls and meeting rooms of the Gran Fira, but we saw some groovy wheels and weird creatures too.

Come on, click below, we have some sights to show you:

Nokia's MagiX Bus?
Nokia's new X phone has an open-source license to the Android OS but no access to the Google App store yet. Will users go port and multiply?

Re: No. 9
Context: I turned the corner in hall 8 and took that picture. MWC might be even more gruelling than CES now. It is supposed to be a 20 min walk  between Hall 1 and Hall 8 but it can take much longer. I'm just glad I don't have to cover CeBIT anymore. CES-MWC-CeBIT would be a brutal 3 months.

Re: No. 9
Maybe therapists wearing logo-embroidered t-shirts are the next hot swag items!

Re: Oh, and the tentacles...
Yeah, that makes sense, Poeople said they had a booth in the hall somewhere but I certainly couldn't find it.

Oh, and the tentacles...
... weren't they advertising some product with an octo-core?  I assumed, which means guessed, which means I don't really know.

That bus - you've all got it wrong
... the bus on slide one is actually a real world example of a 'massive device' that DOCOMO are going to connect accordign to slide 2.

 

Get with the program people!

Re: Better to look cool
Let's hope the white visor can dispense some wardrobe improvement selections for the wearer.

I can't be held reponsible for what happens next time someone asks me if they should get a Galaxy S5 or wait for the next iPhone.

Better to look cool
Do Tizen developers sit on the back of the Android bus and smoke cigarettes and try to look cool?

Tentacles don't have to be "about" anything.

That visor is great for rocking the Geordi LaForge look.
