Mobile World Congress is the most important global tradefair for mobile phones and the underlying technologies and infrastructure. MWC attracts both visitors and exhibitors from around the globe, showcasing the latest developments in the marketplace. MWC is quite different from the other trade shows we visit as it is totally targeted towards mobile communications.

Despite the global recession there are lots of announcements and excitement buzzing around just in time for the show. Garmin and Asus are collaborating to produce the NuviPhone, CSR have just taken over SiRF. Android seems to be on everyone's lips... Not forgetting the Apple iPhone. Apple will not be there, but there are many other companies with iPhone accessories and applications. We are already hearing rumours of more Navigation applications, but none have reached the AppStore yet.

I will be travelling light for this show and will not have my computer with me, but hopefully I will be able to keep you up to date using the on-site press facilities.

Hi Mike,

Most grateful to you for giving us the 'skinny'.

Would you be a star and collate a list of the vendors showing/claiming to have an iPhone turn-by-turn solution?

It would give those of us that are 'rabid' for a solution a list of targets to keep a close eye on.

Thanks again, enjoy the weather, and don't down too many Sangrias! Thumbs Up

I can help with that, two I know of are ALK CoPilot and Sygic's McGuider.

IIRC Navigon might also be one of those with a working demo. TomTom although rumoured to have a working app have not to my knowledge ever demonstrated it.

The problem with the iPhone apps is that people tell me or show me and then say you can't tell anyone... It's a bit frustrating.

I can tell you that Telmap have one as it was on open display on their stand.
