Meet the Team Covering Mobile World Congress
With Mobile World Congress less than a week away, questions are already flying around about what’s being announced. The most notable of which, what will Samsung announce if its not the Galaxy S III, are the Huawei Diamond rumours true, and will HTC have ended its lawsuit with Vivid Entertainment?
It’s no easy task covering events, producing countless videos and photos away from a quiet and controlled environment, but we don’t want you feeling left out. During the week of the event, our UK-based team will be upping-shop and moving their production efforts to Barcelona.
