The show is packed, with hardly any room across the vast Fira show grounds in central Barcelona to swing a cat (should anyone consider such a maneuver…). Estimates put the visitor numbers this year at above 60,000.
Conversely, most other things appear to be shrinking, with small-cell architectures and increasingly tiny and slim devices being unveiled.
Overall, the buzz is positive at this year's show. Here's what the Light Reading team has reported so far -- look out for lots more coverage on our Mobile World Congress Show Site:
