Honestly, it's my first time going to Mobile World Congress (MWC) which takes place in wonderful Barcelona, Spain, Europe. So I'm quite excited what will happen there and what this huge event will look like. What I do know already: I'm going there with Intel in order to video blog about all the cool things which will be shown at the Intel booth in Hall 7, A49 (App Planet) and beyond. Some information needed?
- At the Intel booth there will be several software partners (ISV) who will show their latest and greatest applications running on a netbook. Namely there will be demos showing Eyesight, JacCut, Fluendo, Popcatcher, Axel, Fring, Igalia, Scalado, Digital Chocolate, Abby, BL Stream and BMAT. All these demos will have their dedicated time slots at the Intel booth from Monday, 15 to Thursday, 18. And if you want to know more about these apps - I'll provide some more information during this week.
- Another highlight at the Intel booth will be the tech talks between Steve "Chippy" Paine from umpcportal.com and Sascha Pallenberg from netbooknews.com who will come together four times at the Intel stand and chat about the different aspects of the mobile market. Watch this space for more information about these live sessions.
- If rumors are true the real MWC only starts when the halls are being closed. Means we'll do this whole networking stuff at dedicated mobile event like WIP Jam, Mobile Sunday and many more. If there's anything interesting what we should share with you be ensured that we will blog about it.
- Beside the consumer part behind netbooks and Intel AppUp Center there is a developer aspect of course. So if you are creating interesting apps which are meant to be applicable for netbook usage come and stop by at the Intel booth. There you can meet the right people who can tell you everything about the Intel Atom Developer Program and beyond.
- So, come to Barcelona from 15 to 18 February, 2010 and visit the Mobile World Congress in general and Intel at hall 7 (App Planet), stand A49 in particular. Learn everything about netbook apps and how you can make money out of them. We are really looking forward to meeting you!
