painful. Waiting for the waiter to bring the cheque is painful. People


love this. People turn their backs to a long line. Consumers love it.


They do not have to wait in line. We have not just seen a blooding of


the line separating phones from tablets but it is getting more


difficult to tell where the virtual world ends and the real world


begins. That was a round-up of this year's sure. I think it is fair to


say that the smart phone revolution only really got going with touch-


screen technology. Specifically, Capacitive touch-screen technology.


Check this out. This is the prototype of a new type of touch


screen. Firstly, you don't actually touch it. More importantly, you can


see that it can detect, with a good degree of accuracy, how close the


tips of my fingers are to the screen. That is clear there on this


lap top. This paves the way for apps and devices that can be


controlled using 3D gestures. This is also limited by your imagination.


You can get more accurate as you move your finger closer to the


screen. I find this quite exciting. The guys behind the touch-screen


say they already have an interested manufacturer. These devices could


be on the shelves by the end of next year. Next up, tech news. A

phones and tablets. They plan to integrated into their TV range and


other devices, which include cars and... It is ironic but one of the


things that we struggle to get here are the Mobile World Congress is a


decent signal. Like any large gathering of people, the local


services are flooded. Many people are from Spain. The data on the


phone can cost more than the hotel bar bill. Roman charges kick in


when you leave your country of origin. Within the EU, the chances


of getting a bill running into thousands of pounds are remote.


There is a service to warn you when you build its 50 euros. Networks


offer data at Dons we significantly reduce the cost. Many also offer to


stop the connection may you hit a predetermined limit. The high price


of roaming is also prompting alternative services. Goodspeed


takes 10 some cards for a different countries. Globalbig give several


devices access to data. At the moment, it is all a active in the


UK, States and Australia. It offers rates more comparable to those at


home. It is interesting to note that in most parts of the world,


rates have gone up. Our pricing in all zones, even in two years time,


will be based on domestic prices which will be lower than the EU


charges. And indeed things are looking up. Next year, for the EU


regulation allows us to choose which network build us for our


roaming service. Essentially it allows us to the couple are phones

trying to improve the customer experience. They will provide you


with apps that allow you to track your usage then you are roaming.


They will be very transparent about prices. They will try to keep you


on their network. It sounds like Europe has strict regulations


coming in to keep the prices down. What about the rest of the world. -

fighting to find the right path through books like Death Trap


Dungeon, mastering the five fingered bookmark so you could jump


back a few stages when it all goes horribly wrong. They've even bilge


cheating into the app so you can jump back using the Bookmarks,

sound effects and tension music. And you don't need to carry a dice

job to help them make use of that data by classifying and counting


the animals that you see. It helps the famous wildlife reserve keep


track of what's going on. It's like crowd sourcing the job of park


ranger, and you get to look at some really cool photographs while you


work. The complicated species IED process

Russell. So we have established the mobile industry is moving rather


fast, it is mobile after all, as well as this year's big


announcements there are plenty of other things to see down there on


the show floor at MWC. Here's It's a crazy fast-paced world of


communication we live in. Especially the Mobile World


Congress -- at the Mobile World Congress. Thankfully there are some


people just trying to take life that bit easier. And Concepts


giving us time to contemplate our surroundings. Ideas like this from


Japan, a pair of augmented reality specs, reflecting an emerging trend


towards wearable tech. Look down and they could show you where you


are. Look up to the heavens and you might get the weather forecast or


some other useful information. Unlike project last, these build in


gesture to. For point your way to a menu when their horizontal and you


get your apps -- for example. Fancy brushing up your artistic skills?


No problem. They're still in their infancy and right now they still


need a helping hand from a man at a laptop, but definitely a pointer to


what ahead. There was no shortage of colourful expression at MWC and


it's good to know some outfits are working hard to fully exploit that


processing in our smartphones for creative ends. Creative self-


expression through your mobile is all well and good when you're


trying to take videos and pictures sometimes they can be prone to a


bit of camera wobble. That's when sock where image stabilisation can


help to counteract the very worst effects -- software. Mobile


processors are now so powerful that smartphone cameras can now take two


images almost simultaneously, one of the subject and one of its


background. Because they're taken at two different focusing points


the camera can isolate one from the other and that can lead to some


very cool effects. Excuse me. And here we have the so called shallow


depth of field effect so beloved by pros. You can see it's all blurred


in the background and the best thing is you can dial the effects


down or up according to your creative win. Now with all these


innovations is easy to lose sight of the core purpose of mobile tech,


to communicate. Right now that tends to mean a voice call is made


through your phone. That's beginning to change. O2 has just


launched to go, and app letting you take your phone number on multiple


devices to let you make phone calls and texts. Soon we will be able to


extend that phone experience to the Web as well. Imagine this is your


mobile phone account on your operators website, or your contacts


are here and you can use your regular phone number to touch base


with each other. It's thanks to a technology called real-time


communication and it will soon be implemented in the likes of the


Firefox browser as well as kugel's Chrome. It means you can make voice


and video calls from within the browser environment. -- Google. Or


you could send any other data as well simply by dragging and


dropping. The best thing is you don't need to download any


additional software or plug-ins, it will simply work on any compatible


Web browser, on any device, phone, tablet or PC. The mobile world can


be an intimidating place, especially for mature users who may


not be all that familiar with tech. The power of the Web is being used


here as well. Loved ones can been put Granny's contacts or snaps into


a web browser and then they are sent to her handset. For the more


sophisticated Saull the surface there are devices that Givet --


silver surfers -- give. There's a screen with haptic feedback which


response to harder presses. There's even a panic button. For the health


conscious there as a barometer. It does some sophisticated processing


of incoming calls like noise cancelling, adjusting the frequency


of the boys the according to your age, and even slowing down their


voice and so you can hear them more clearly -- the voice. I'm on my way,


I'm sorry I'm late. I know I'm late but I will be there in five minutes.
