The next evolution in wireless networking holds promises of self-driving cars and movies that download in the blink of an eye. 5G is big at this year's Mobile World Congress, but don't expect it until 2020.
Mobile World Congress starts next week in Barcelona. The largest wireless party on the planet, MWC is famous for showcasing new smartphones and wearables that you'll actually be able to buy.
The company's "Unified Wireless Networks" concept promises to more than double your download speeds, boost your upload speed by 55 times and double the Wi-Fi range.
Two versions of this stylish phone give you different sizing options and specs.
At MWC 2015, Alcatel showcases the 7- and 8-inch variants of its OneTouch Pixi 3 Android tablets.
Powered by Cyanogen OS, the phablet will hit North America in either April or May for just $299.
Made in a range of materials and colors, Alcatel hopes there's an affordable OneTouch Watch for every Android and iOS owner.
Countless permutations on specs and even the phone's OS mean that there's no one way to get a Pixi.
A partnership with Verizon and other carriers is aimed at bringing the browser-based operating system to wealthy countries. But don't expect ordinary slab-of-glass phones.
With support for 3G, 4G and 4G+ networks, these affordable mobile hotspots let up to 32 devices connect at the same time.
