TouchArcade at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

This might be a long shot, considering this event seems to be overrun by Android and other non-iPhone mobile devices, but I will be at Mobile World Congress all week this week in Barcelona, Spain. In addition, I will be on two panels of sorts this coming Thursday, one announcing the winners of the International Mobile Gaming Awards and a second “live pitching session". If you happen to be in Barcelona either for the event, or just because you happen to live in the area, I’d love to meet up with you if you’ve got something new, cool, and/or exciting to show off.

If you’d like to schedule a meeting, send an email off to tips@toucharcade.com and be sure to include “MWC 2011" somewhere in the subject so it properly gets filtered in my inbox. Keep in mind, I’m very much a typical American and really only speak fluent English. If you don’t (wait, how are you reading this?) I’m still totally willing to meet up, but communication might be difficult.

For everyone else not at the event, I’m really not sure what to expect. I’ve been told this is the “CES of mobile phones". I sort of thought CES was the CES of mobile phones, but you never know. If I see anything neat on the show floor that pertains to iOS on any level, you can look forward to finding out about it on TouchArcade. The show hasn’t even started yet and I’ve already seen some flat out insane Tegra 2 tech demos, and I seriously can’t wait to see what is coming in the next round of Apple hardware if it’s anything like that.

Here’s Galaxy on Fire 2 running on the Tegra 2 chipset:

That’s just crazy for a mobile device.
