It might be famed for its football, but this week the World Mobile Congress has also kicked off in Barcelona.
There are all kinds of wacky gadgets, but our correspondent Claudio Rocco says it is the latest smartphones which are stealing the show.
‘‘On your TV screens you cannot see it, but I can assure you that this mobile phone I have in my hands is in 3D. 3D mobile phones have been the ‘stars’ in Barcelona this year.’‘
More than 50,000 visitors are expected to visit the event in the Spanish city to taste what’s on offer. One smartphone by LG is the first that can film and upload 3D videos and photos, according to the manufacturer.
The battle between the industry’s big beasts to grab a share of the lucrative PC tablet market is also as fierce as ever, with Samsung unveiling its much awaited Galaxy model to rival Apples Ipad.
Not just an e-book, the Galaxy is expected to offer a range of quirky features, which include a powerful camera and phone.
