The massive European tradeshow has had a slightly downbeat air in the last couple of years as the industry waded through the recession. The crowds we saw at CES at Vegas in January suggests that the wireless business is well ready to shake off recession times and the MWC show should cement this.
So look for champagne and tiny snacks to be plentiful at the evening events. Light Reading Mobile will be there in force and we're expecting to see a few key trends emerge at the show:
- Base stations will get smaller and smarter
- LTE will spread
- Androids will get cheaper
- Tablets will be everywhere
Let us know what you're hoping to see on the message board below.
