MWC 2011: How we survived

Mobile World Congress 2011 is over. We’ve had an absolutely amazing and crazy time here in Barcelona, where we got to play around with some of the best new phones and tablets that’ll be hitting the shelves in the months to come.

First and foremost we’d like to say a massive thank you to Vodafone, as we uploaded the majority of our stories from MWC with Vodafone’s Mobile Wi-Fi device. In a press room where hundreds of writers, reporters, photographers and videographers were all hogging the venue’s Wi-Fi to upload their stuff, being able to upload our stories on the go whenever was a godsend.

The iPass Android app was also indispensable in sniffing out open Wi-Fi hotspots, so we could check emails on our phones without eating into our roaming data plans. We also used an Eye-Fi 4GB + Wi-Fi card in our camera to upload hands-on pics, which was a huge timesaver.

We’ve got an early flight to catch tomorrow so we’re turning in now. Thanks again to everyone who made it possible. See you next year!
