Mobile World Congress 2011 - We're here. Now what we expect...

Well our plane(s) have landed and some of the vast SmartphoneExperts staff are here at Barcelona getting ready to cover Mobile World Congress 2011 aka the biggest mobile phone/technology conference and show on the planet.

Head editor Dieter Bohn (also, PreCentral), Phil Nickinson (ex-WinMo, Android Central) and myself will be here for the full show, covering every aspect.

For Windows Phone 7, we'll have plenty of things including Steve Ballmer's keynote speech tomorrow, events with HTC, Samsung, LG, SPB, Qualcomm and a Microsoft developer day on Wednesday, with Brandon Watson giving a "State of the union" address on WP7.

Things we can expect:

  • More on the NoDo update, specifically timing of release
  • CDMA support? Sprint & Verizon hopefully announcing their devices
  • Updates on the chassis requirements for WP7 (Chassis 2?)
  • Oh and probably some talk about that Nokia thing

We'll have plenty of video, photos, interviews, etc. on hand in the next few days, so stay tuned. Remember to follow us on Twitter at @wpcentral (or me personally @malatesta77 if you want behind-the-scenes shenanigans) and on Facebook for all the latest. Also the tag "mwc11" will bring you just Mobile World Congress content.
