Barcelona Congress Unveils The Future

Barcelona hosted the Mobile World Congress last week and offered a glimpse into some of the technology that could be enjoyed by consumers this year and beyond.

Fifty-five thousand people gathered to see what the year ahead holds for the mobile phone market and numerous manufacturers vied for consumers attention.

Vic Gundotra, vice-president of engineering for mobile at Google, suggested that it would be looking to implement all-new features it develops on mobile handsets.

"Comparing today's possibilities with what was possible 25 years ago and then thinking ahead 25 years from now, it's incredibly exciting to imagine what we might be able to do," he said.

Mobile recycling could be one option to consider for users wishing to get their hands on the latest devices.

Eric Schmidt told the congress that more than half of new web connections are coming from mobile devices, a rate that is eight times faster than the same point ten years ago for the desktop.
