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?
