Live at Mobile World Congress

Smartphone Experts' always-on-the-go editor-in-chief Dieter Bohn is in Spain and on the floor, ready to send us back any and all news from Mobile World Congress this week. Of course, Apple isn't there, and most general-purpose smartphone shows are pretty happy to pretend the iPhone doesn't exist, so while we won't see anything in the way of new hardware or firmware, we have heard some rumors about pretty big software announcements. (Hint: rhymes with socs2go).

For those interested in what the competition is iCloning doing, keep an eye on these Mobile World Congress sections of PreCentral (including GSM Pre!), WMExperts (including the Touch Diamond 2 and Pro 2), Android Central (pending), and Nokia Experts (pending).

See anything that should make Apple nervous?
