Firefox OS, Tizen and Wi-Fi coffee machine shown off at MWC

As MWC rumbles into its third day, the CNET team has been combing the show to make sure you don't miss a thing.

As Mobile World Congress rumbles into its third day, the CNET team on the ground in Barcelona has been combing the show to make sure you don't miss a single product or announcement. Here are the highlights from the last tech-packed 24 hours.

Operating systems have been big news at the show this year, with Firefox showing of its new OS on Sunday and the Tizen Association unveiling its own OS at a press conference yesterday.

CNET UK's very own Luke Westway and Rich Trenholm went hands-on with an early device so check out their first take , video (below) and photo gallery for a short tour.

Back with Firefox, Andrew Hoyle got his paws on the Geeksphone Keon , and took it for a test drive. We've seen a total of four Firefox phones at MWC now -- the others being the ZTE Open , the Geeksphone Peak and the Alcatel One Touch Fire . Take a look and let us know what you think. Do you think it looks more interesting than other new operating systems like Tizen or Ubuntu?

Other unique devices that passed through our hands and in front of beady eyes included the NEC Medias W N-05E , a dual-screen phone that folds out into tablet. Another fairly niche blower to rock up was the Cat B15 . Bearing the name of the same company that makes industrial forklifts, tractors and mining equipment, the B15 can operate in temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius (-4 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit) and can withstand drops of up to 6 feet.

Fujitsu launched the Arrows X F-02E , a powerful Android phone with an exquisite screen, a quad-core 1.7GHz processor, not to mention a 16.3-megapixel camera, a fingerprint scanner, and a water- and dust-resistant shell. It also announced the Stylistic S01 , a phone aimed at the senior market.

It wasn't all about the phones though. A bunch of other snazzy gadgets were unveiled, including a concept Wi-Fi coffee machine and the Ford EcoSport with Spotify voice control , which will be heading to Europe later this year. A Samsung home-cinema hub also caught our eye, as did a paper nano-SIM and Dell's Project Ophelia , an Android-powered device that plugs into any TV or monitor.

Head over to the main Mobile World Congress page to make sure you don't miss a thing and let us know what's impressed you the most so far in the comments below or over on our Facebook page.
