Greetings from Barcelona!

 

That was a long flight from Seattle, USA to Spain, but it’s great to be here getting ready for Mobile World Congress.  We’ve started to unpack and have unboxed something amazing right here as we set up.  As for me, last Friday I was having fish & chips with the family in Seattle and tonight its authentic Spanish fare!  Can’t wait to share the sights, sounds, and flavors of Barcelona.

Well, we need to get back to work preparing for MWC and our press conference on Sunday.  Can’t wait to see what we “unwrap” next!

All the best from Barcelona, John

 

I Wonder What These Could Be

While it's nice of him to say hello to all of us here on the Internet, and we certainly wish him well, we're more interested in the picture he attached. 54 pieces of "something amazing" are in that box (we counted), covered teasingly in pink bubble wrap.  We don't have much to go on, but I have One good guess.

Everything from how their phones are designed, to Beats Audio integration and even a behind the scenes look at HTC and some of the crazy personalities of their employees and customers. Aside from their “hello” announcement, they’ve also teased a box of new devices ready to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress.

Aside from their “hello” announcement, they’ve also teased a box of new devices ready to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress. While it’s tough to see through their protective bubble wrap, I suspect it will be something amazing. I’m rooting for HTC and hopefully this new line of devices — the HTC One V, HTC One S and HTC One X — will be enough to get them back on top. Press conference starts on Sunday so make sure you keep it locked to Phandroid where the better half of our team will be reporting live from the event. [HTC Blog] [...]

    Is this the VERY-LONG awaited quad-core tablet? You know I’ve been waiting for this since last year. I refuse to buy iPad or Galaxy Tab. Being an HTC fan I can’t wait for the release date of this quad-core tablet… COME ON! Make my weekend!!!

  67. [...] HTC is about to take the stage at this years Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona. Earlier this week, Pocketnow reported  a leaked photo of the rumoured HTC One X smartphone. The HTC One X is claimed to have HTC’s first quad-core smartphone, using Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and will launch with ICS and HTC Sense 4.0. The phone should also include LTE, 8MP Camera, a 4.7" screen, and if this is true, we can't wait to get our hands on the new One X. The last few devices we reviewed contained audio issues so hopefully this model and others planned for 2012 will be much improved. [...]
