The hip, hot highlights at Mobile World Congress

Science
-Yes, Virginia, mobile is huge. This year's Mobile World Congress pulled in more than 72,000 attendees, a new record, all in Barcelona to see the latest in phones, tablets, mobile services apps and trends. -All right, we're here at Huawei. This is Jeff's first hands on with a phablet. -It is-- It is not just any phablet. This is the Ascend Mate and it is gigantic. -It was announced at the-- It made a huge splash and it's a huge so to speak trends -Yes. -I think in most bigger phones. -Definitely. I mean, do I look stupid? Hello. -Well, it's not for that. Stop pretending that phones are for talking. Trust me. I think we're gonna see a lot more this. This? This is the next big thing, get it? Because these are really big phones. -It is big. It's a large thing. -Everybody's get in that 7-inch tablet game. -Yes, lots of these around these parts. -Another big trend in mobile phone development, China. These manufacturers that you're just starting to hear of, Huawei, and also up-and-comer ZTE are starting to make some very cool phones. Expect them to be sort of the next generations Samsung. Remember how they came out of nowhere and now the own it. Let's say in ZTE, this grand memo and some of their other announcements at the show looking pretty good. Oh, it's so easy. That's a very nice keyboard. -It is. -That's affordable. -It is. It is. -Traditional audio devices had been on the market for years. What we have done is we've integrated a display on the front. -I'm videoing you guys, videoing me and those are menu in the upper right. -Wow, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is super nice. It's a good size too. That was a really good idea that Apple had to build this 7-inch tablet. That's actually an 8-inch tablet. -Yet another 7-inch tablet. This one is from Huawei. It's the MediaPad 7 Lite, which is kind of an ironic name when you consider. It's not very light when compared all the other ones we have been seeing. It's the least impressive of the 7 inches I've seen at the show so far. It's big and think and clunky. And it's only got Android 4.0 on it. No Jelly Bean here. Color me unimpressed. -And of course, there were new gadgets galore. Here are just a few of the big announcements from Barsa.
