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.

Huawei Ascend P2 hands-on

As night follows day, so Huawei's Ascend P2 follows the original P1, a slimline smartphone launched at Mobile World Congress today. Aesthetically similar to its predecessor, the Ascend P2 does pack some more interesting specifications - such as a 13-megapixel camera on the rear - but there's a catch, since the display isn't the 1080p slab of loveliness we were hoping for.

Apple and Samsung grab over half smartphone share as phone sales slim in 2012

Apple and Samsung now collectively dominate more than half of the worldwide smartphone market by sales, according to new research, though the phone market as a whole shrank slightly in 2012, year-on-year. Samsung held pole position, Gartner said, in both smartphones and phones generally, with almost 385m global sales in the year; Apple's sales reached 130m units for the same period. Meanwhile, Huawei managed to snag the number three spot in Q4 2012, though Gartner points out that it's far from a stable position.

Huawei shocks smartphone market with 3rd place finish in 2012: IDC

Huawei shocks smartphone market with 3rd place finish in 2012: IDC

This week we're having a bit of a double-take on the IDC's release outlining the fourth quarter mobile device market share breakdown for the end of 2012, with none other than Huawei taking third place. This is absolutely surprising as all get-out as Huawei has never before cracked the top 5 smartphone vendors in the world - it's only been inside the top 10 before now. Groups like LG, Motorola, and Nokia do not appear in the top 5 for smartphone sales in the quarter, while Nokia sits pretty in second place for total mobile phone "Vendors, Shipments, and Market Share" for 2012 (that includes non-smart phones).
