ASUS plans to enter US smartphone market in 2014

ASUS has enjoyed a variety of successes with its Android tablets, perhaps most notable among them being the Transformer series and the Nexus 7.

Samsung files for phone/tablet docking device trademark in USA

This week the folks at Samsung have suggested - without saying so to the public - that they're not about to let ASUS leave them in the dust with a phone that docks into a tablet. While Samsung's device isn't exactly the same as the ASUS Padfone, the trademark we're seeing here doesn't put it all that far off from the mark.

Make or break the show for the press, that is. Case in point: our several articles written from our chat with Google's Mathias Duarte - they ended up easily becoming some of the most popular posts we had this week, and Google didn't reveal any new products at the convention. In fact, they didn't have a stand - the chat we had wasn't even on the map. And yet, there it is - Google stole the show anyway.

MWC 2013 Post-Mortem

Mobile World Congress 2013 scrambles to a close, a week of new phones and tablets, a shiny new venue, and more questions as to whether the days of the big trade show are numbered.
