Top Three Innovations at Mobile World Congress 2015

by Jörgen Eriksson on March 4, 2015

mobile world congressI used to visit Mobile World Congress (MWC) every year while it was in Cannes, until 2006. Then the event outgrew the Festival Palace and moved to the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona in 2007. Since then I have been only a few times. This year MWC is on between 2 and 5 of March and it pulled in over 90,000 attendants from all over the world.

Below are two videos from Financial Times reporting about this years event. First, easily digestible, a two minute video about the Top Three Innovations this year. A bit further down, a five minutes interview with Eriksson’s CEO Hans Vestberg, about the Internet of things.
