The Battle of Barcelona is underway as the world’s high-tech giants exhibit their latest gadgets at the Mobile World Congress. The event is expected to draw tens of thousands of techie fans eager to get a glimpse of the newest smartphone and tablets.
Our correspondent in Barcelona, Claudio Rocco, said: “Among the many devices on display in Barcelona is what Nokia claims is the best ever camera in a smartphone.”
The Nokia 808 Pureview can generate pictures roughly 5 megapixels in size and performs well in low light, it is claimed. The company is hoping to regain market share lost to its major rivals.
Samsung is showcasing its Galaxy 10.1, tablet, which it hopes will compete with Apple’s new Iphone.
But it is not just the big boys, a host of smaller companies are aiming to make an impact at the Congress.
Sweden’s Scalado has come up with a phone which, it says, allows the user to erase images of passers by who happen to wander into shot.
