MWC14: Day 1 – Bustlin' Barcelona

BARCELONA -- Mobile World Congress 2014 -- We came, we saw, we stood in line...

This year's show in Barcelona looks to be bigger than ever, with more than 70,000 visitors expected this week. That means some lines for the coffee stands too.

Click on the picture below for some images of the first day at MWC:

Re: Coffee Nope, no tapas! MWC probably has the worst selection of food of any trade show I've been to.

Re: so why is it in Barcelona? Used to be in Cannes, until it outgrew it. May outgrown Barcelona or at least the single train option soon too.

Re: so why is it in Barcelona? Yeah its the hotels and transport not the technology. Same reason big US conferences end up in Chicago and Las Vegas rather than Silicon Valley.

Re: It's peeeeeepul! I pranged my dad's car when I was 17 - but it had nothing to do with mind-altering substances.

Re: Coffee Sarah, 

"Yeah, but then I tried it and remembered I don't like coffee, so I got a tea instead. True story."

I had to rate your comment as the funniest comment of the month. :D I was sipping my own tea here, and it almost ended up all over my desk.

Re: Coffee Sarah, 

Was your coffee still hot after carrying it through three halls? :D No tapas in the press room?

so why is it in Barcelona? Is it simply a place where they happen to have big hotels and convention centers? I hadn't really heard of Spain being a hotbed of mobile development. I mean, why Barcelona and not Germany?

Zuckerberg Long line to hear a guy say that paying $16 billion for something was a bargain.

Re: It's peeeeeepul! I had to look up "pranged" as well. Shouldn't it have been the caption for the Nokia pictures instead?

For those innocent, unaware minds, pranged, from Urban Dictionary:
to be intoxicated, often by mind altering drugs.
"dude last night I was totally pranged - I became the lamp, I was the light... yeah...."

heat treatment Re slide 2: "Was that a squirrel I just hit?" "No, looks more like a dog on the heat sensor map. Or maybe a large cat." "I hope it was a stray."
