Live from Mobile World Congress 2012

MWC 2012

Mobile World Congress 2012 officially opens tomorrow and for the first time What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision will be reporting live from the show in Barcelona.

MWC is the CES of the mobile world and we're expecting a host of new smartphones and tablets to be unveiled, with a smattering of apps and in-car entertainment technology thrown-in for good measure.

With mobile technology already making a big impact on the AV industry, from smartphones as media players, to tablets as remote controls, we thought it only right that we added MWC to our calendar.

The action kicks-off this evening with Sony's Xperia event, followed by the main show opening its doors on Monday morning.

We'll bring you news on the most exciting new multimedia devices, with an obvious bias towards those aiming to deliver the best audio and video performance.

New products are already breaking cover, from Samsung's Galaxy 2 (7.0 tablet to LG's Optimus 3D Max smartphone.

Look out for more news from MWC over the next few days.
