2016 Smartphone avalanche begins


Blue & Elton: Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word

Subtitle: Mobile World Congress 2016

The above video is officially to commiserate anybody who has purchased a high end mobile phone in the last 3 months.  All I can say is commiserations, and I really hope that you got a good deal...

because

As I have been constantly nagging:  Mobile World Congress  (MWC) in February of each year is where you will find many of the latest Smartphone announcements.

So if you have finite funds, and you buy Smartphones yourself, with your hard earned money, then it is best to wait until after MWC, because then you can decide on what to buy, the latest phone, at a premium, or the outgoing generation, which will have experienced a suitable promotional, inventory clearing price cuts. Or if your current Smartphone is good enough, to defer purchase until 2017.



Just 3 phones
Even though MWC starts on Monday there are already at 3 significant new phone releases.  This is presented below. 

I also further comment, yet again, ad infinitum, that I am not bloody interested in speculation, rumours, renders of phones from a spotty kids bedroom, or maybe's or perhaps.  Wait for the damn manufacturer announcement!

And So
To conclude, MWC 2016 formally starts Monday Feb 22 and so there are 3 more days of announcements. Like us if you too are in the Technology sphere you will study and analyse the actual announcements.  Let Google and YouTube, and of course this Blog and G+  be your guide.
