It's time. MWC officially opens the show floor this morning and Microsoft is first out of the box with an early morning press event. We'll be on hand to cover it all live, and we're bringing you with us. So put on a pot of coffee, grab some breakfast, and join us in the liveblog below!

Everything kicks off at 8.30 a.m. local time, which is 7.30 a.m. GMT, 2.30 a.m. Eastern so for anyone in Europe and anywhere west it's a real early start. If you're wanting to find out when it is in your time zone, use this handy converter
