They were slicing a giant pork roast here in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, but all I could look at was the amazing array of mobile technologies the folks at Mobile Focus (put on by Pep Com but not affiliated with MWC) laid out. Exec producer Fritz Nelson, videographer Matt Conner and I avoided the carcass and spent our time checking a surprising array of mobile technologies. There were several main themes I noticed. Lots of announced but still unshipped devices were in use by the app makers. The upcoming LG phones and the here-any-minute RIM BlackBerry PlayBook were in full sight, showing off games, fancy personal networking technologies, 3D maps and developer toolkits for every device imaginable. A lot of companies were taking mobile aim at Skype. I loved a product from VMware that will allow two operating systems to run on one phone -- theoretically, that means they could put iOS in a virtual session on the Android. That video is coming soon. Take a look at some of things we found. As I said, Fritz and I both shot videos at this locale. Keep a look out.
