The Best in Disruptive Tech from MWC2019
Mobile World Congress 2019 is well underway here in Barcelona, and we’re excited to be able to experience the fun!
Major tech innovators around the world have gathered at MWC2019 this week to share their latest mobile technology, learn about the hottest startups, and connect with industry leaders. With keynote speakers like Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins and Citi President James Forese, as well as dozens of partner-led programs, GSMA seminars, and summits, MWC2019 presents a unique opportunity to explore the cutting edge of the mobile world.
This year’s core themes, encompassing “Intelligent Connectivity,” include AI, Disruptive Innovation, Immersive Content, Connectivity, Digital Wellness and Trust, Industry 4.0, and The Future. With insightful content focused around these topics, MWC2019 promises something valuable for everyone.
And as 100,000+ key decision-makers and business leaders convene in the city of Barcelona for the world’s largest mobile event, we’re excited to participate in the festivities at Pepcom Mobile Focus Global and showcase our AI-Powered Smart Storage Platform, Amber.
We’re proud to join the innovators and visionaries who are pushing the mobile industry forward — and without further ado, here are some of the tech innovations that have caught our eye:
1. SanDisk Extreme 1TB microSD card
With a whopping 1TB of space, SanDisk’s new microSD card has made a splash in the world of smartphone storage. You might not need so much space, but if you tend to run into phone storage issues (4K video and mobile games, anyone?), it’s a good bet that you’ll appreciate the extra capacity.
2. 5G and foldable phones
When it comes to smartphone tech, Samsung and Huawei dominated the show with the Galaxy S10 and the foldable Mate X, and others like the Nokia 9 PureView gave a glimpse into powerful new rear camera technology. It’s pretty incredible to see the strides being made as phone screens, cameras, and next-generation 5G connectivity continue to improve — and did we mention smartphones can be folded now?
3. Microsoft HoloLens 2
The new mixed-reality headset from Microsoft, HoloLens 2, is a major upgrade to the first HoloLens. It’s more powerful, more comfortable to wear, and offers a field of view that’s more than twice the size of the original. Designed for business and enterprise, the HoloLens 2 allows you to work smarter with business-ready solutions from industry partners on Microsoft’s trusted foundation.
4. Amber Smart Storage Platform
