Bienvenidos

Mobile World Congress takes place this week at the Fira de Barcelona, a huge complex of several exhibition buildings that sit beneath the city's Montjuic park, the Catalan Museum of Art, and the site of the 1992 Olympics.

Though the show doesn't officially begin until Monday, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, and Samsung have press conferences Sunday night (9 a.m. PT).

Inside Hall 8

I forgot my hard hat so I couldn't get inside Hall 8, but Moto's booth looks like it was imported from CES. Most handset manufactuers will set up in Hall 8, which is the largest at the show.

T-Mobile

T-Mobile's pavilion will occupy its usual place next to a reflecting pool. This year, however, it's a bit more imposing.
