The 3GSM World Congress ends today in Cannes and the mobile phone industry left us with new phones and new technology to hope for getting in our hands somewhen soon.
The big topics were new, smaller and cheaper 3G phones. Sony Ericsson topped the MP3 player phones trend off with the Sony Walkman Phone announcement. The PDD Helix Phone (photo) was maybe the coolest new concept phone shown.
TV streaming onto mobile phones is supposedly what consumers want. Also HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) or so called 3.5G promisses 14Mbps and more downstream bandwidth (see article on The Register).
On the smartphone front Microsoft stole the spot light with the Peabody phone platform announcement making it easy for mobile phone vendors to produce and offer Windows Mobile based smart phones.
