Mobile World Congress 2010: The Plan

Published by at

With Mobile World Congress just 10 days away, it's time to share some of our plans with you. This year All About Symbian (AAS) is teaming up with Mobile Industry Review (MIR) to bring you in-depth video coverage direct from Barcelona. We're combining our resources to bring you in-depth content that we hope will inform, educate and entertain. In addition, you can expect our usual flow of live updates and editorial from all the All About Symbian team.


This is all possible because of the support of the Symbian Foundation. We're planning more content coverage from MWC 2010 than ever before. Getting to Barcelona, taking all the camera and production equipment, accommodation, and travel - the costs mount-up, especially when over 50,000 mobile industry people converge in one city! As a result, this extra Mobile World Congress video coverage on AAS and MIR will be brought to you courtesy of the support of the Symbian Foundation. However, I also want to underline that all editorial control remains with All About Symbian and Mobile Industry Review.

What can you expect to see?

  • Hands-on with the latest devices and gadgets.
  • First thoughts, views and updates direct from the show floor delivered via video, text and Twitter.
  • Interviews with the major players in the Symbian ecosystem.
  • Walk-about style videos at MWC (see our earlier Nokia World videos - LINKS).
  • Mobile developer showcases and profiles.
  • Behind the scenes look at what really goes on at MWC.

Ewan MacLeod (Mr. MIR) and I will be on the ground in Barcelona from Saturday to Saturday. We're aiming to video anything that moves with a Symbian connection as well as providing some general coverage. We'll be publishing video both before, during and after MWC week. Ewan Spence and Steve Litchfield will be managing the usual textual and audio content and keeping on top of the news from the UK. They'll be sharing their immediate thoughts on All About Symbian, as they do every year.

What would you like to see?

Got questions you want answered? An area we must cover? More information of an area of interest? Let us know, via email, Twitter, or in the comment thread below.

If you're going to be in Barcelona and want to be included in our coverage, please get in touch. We're especially keen to hear from any developers as we want to get their opinion on Symbian, mobile development and the future of mobile.

You can expect to see our extra video coverage of MWC on:

Once again, thank you to everyone at the Symbian Foundation for making this extra content possible for us here at AAS, and MIR.
