Mobile World Congress 2014 Day Two [Liveblog]

The venue.

The venue.

This year we’re covering the Barcelona Mobile World Congress a little differently. Each day there will be one liveblog post here on Cult of Mac and one on Cult of Android.

Instead of gathering up press releases and writing them up in the press office at the show, and then hitting the parties, we’ll be posting quick photos and snippets of info from the show floor itself.

Think of it as a kind of Instagram/Twitter hybrid, only right here on the site. Currently the newest posts are at the top, reverse-chronological style. And if you want us to check something out, Tweet us @mistercharlie or @killianbell.

Now, let’s get on with Day Two.

I agree with Killian — this would have worked better if there’d been two holes to stick our heads through.

Killian shows his love for Android. The kind of love that can only exist between man and robot.

Samsung’s stage presenter on the Tab Pro:

“If this battery was a motorcycle, it’d be a Harley Davidson.”

What does that even mean? That it’s only used by 50-year-old dentists with a mid-life crisis?

The 12.2-inch Tab Pro is a pretty great size. It’s light too, although the back is cheap plastic.
