Barcelona 15-18 Feb 2010 sees the MWC 2010 conference take place. I would like to say that I am reporting live from Barcelona, but due to problems with Easyjet yesterday myself and 200+ other people wont be at MWC this year… More of which later.

MWC is always an important event but this year we could be on the cusp of the supreme dominance of SmartPhones particularly in the navigation and LBS markets. The battle is on between Android, iPhone, RIM and Windows Mobile. Will this year see the rise of Android and the demise of Windows Mobile? I wish I was there to find out! Thanks Stelios!!!

However, unlike Easyjet, we do have contingencies for problems and our roving reporter treading the boulevards will be MaFt, who while I am writing this is flying on his way to Barcelona.

Keep a check on the home page for headlines and bookmark our MWC Blog for more detailed MWC news as it comes in.

Huh! Three days ago, I received a series of three emails from them, cancelling my flights to and from Corfu this summer "due to unforeseen problems" and offering me either a full refund or free transfer to another flight within 30 days of the original. With my accommodation already booked and paid for in advance, you may imagine I rather panicked and started doing the headless chicken thing. The three emails came at regular intervals leading up to 7:49pm and by the time I found a phone number for Easyjet, I found that they close at 8pm and it was already 8:10pm.

Almost four hours later, at 11:45pm started another series of three emails arriving over the next half hour saying sorry, the earlier emails were a technical error and the flights weren't cancelled, just changed from daytime to night-time.

PS you could've sent me, I've never been to Barcelona.

As soon as I'd posted that I thought MaFt will surely post that they wondered about sending me, but decided to send somebody competent instead. So I got off lightly!
