I'm off to to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Sunday. Our very compact two-man team (me plus camera/lights/sound/editing specialist Peter Page) is hoping to bring BBC viewers, listener and readers coverage of the most interesting products and stories from this annual shindig of the mobile industry.
Last year was all about the iPhone - or rather fear of the iPhone. Apple's new phone wasn't out, but the established players were all rushing to bring out shiny handsets that might steal the market before its arrival.
This year the theme is not hardware but software. With Google's Android operating system just over the horizon, the battle to be the dominant operating system is hotting up. We'll have interviews with Nokia, Google, and Microsoft, who'll all be explaining why they think they should be crawling all over your mobile screen.
But Barcelona will also see the start of an experiment for this blog. Darren Waters and I are keen to start experimenting with mobile blogging, using a variety of technologies to bring you more video from key stories.
I'm taking a couple of mobiles with video capture to Barcelona, and when I'm not broadcasting for the BBC's TV and radio output, I'll be recording a few shaky clips to post on this blog. It's a modest start - and we'll hope to try various other methods over the coming weeks. Here's a quick video explanation - let us know the kind of thing you'd like to see.
