Still getting the hang of this Google+ Auto-Awesome thing - here are a couple of very poor efforts from my hands on with the Nokia X phones at MWC last month. Only took Google+ a month to decide to Auto-Awesome them... #nokiaxl   #mwc2014

Gah! Google+'s 'Auto-Awesome' feature in theory should be just that, but in practice is poorly executed and anything but awesome. Anybody know how to get under its covers?  #autoawesome

What? An actual smartphone for less than 15 quid? Here's what you need to know.
 
Need to know: Firefox OS and the $25 Firefox Phone - MWC 2014
Mobile World Congress this year has been abuzz with talk of the $25 Firefox Phone, but just what is it and who would want one?

Many will know +Mozilla Firefox  as a popular and powerful open-source web browser for PC, Mac and Android smartphones.

With more of what we do every day taking place through the web — email, word processing and even gaming — it stands to reason that a web browser on its own might make a solid platform for an operating system. Just ask Google, whose Chromebook laptops run nothing more than the +Google Chrome web browser yet accounted for 2 of the 3 best selling laptops at Amazon last Christmas and 20% of all notebooks sold in the US last year.

Firefox OS then is a fully-featured free operating system for mobile phones, tablets and even televisions complete with its own app store.

At Mobile World Congress this year there were several announcements from Mozilla, the not-for-profit organisation which develops Firefox, including availability of 7 new handsets running the Firefox OS. 

At the moment the operating system is predominantly used in smartphones destined for developing markets such as India and Africa, seen as a potential upgrade path from the less-functional ‘feature phones’. Aside from the commercial lure for handset manufacturers to expand their business into countries not already saturated by smartphones, affordable devices such as those running Firefox OS can be enablers for individuals, providing easier access to online resources such as banking, learning and retail. 

Among the new handsets announced this week is the ZTE Open II. A budget smartphone running the latest version 1.3 of Firefox OS it sports a 3.5-inch display, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 2 megapixel camera and 256 MB of storage. Paltry specifications in comparison even to low end smartphones in maturer markets but, at the right price, it’s an affordable and attractive upgrade from a candy bar feature phone in many countries.

The so-called $25 Firefox Phone unveiled this week is another developing market device, although it won’t be available quite yet. Mozilla has, in collaboration with a mobile chipset supplier Spreadtrum, shown a prototype handset which it claims manufacturers will be able to build and retail for as little as $25. That's right, just £15 for a smartphone.

Again, the specifications aren’t great — on your 15 quid phone you won’t even be able to download data over 3G networks, but as a relative experience it’s significantly better than the handsets they’re set to replace. 

While it’s unlikely we’ll see a £15 Firefox Phone making a splash in the UK any time soon, other handsets running Firefox OS have been a hit closer to home, particularly in some Eastern European countries. And thanks to a partnership with Mozilla, Firefox OS is now set to power a new range of smart TVs from +Panasonic Corporation  — if only they could cost as little as £15... ^DM
 
Are you excited by Firefox OS? Would a £15 smartphone have a place in your pocket?

More of my Mobile World Congress coverage over at +O2 Guru TV today, including a couple of pieces on the latest wearable technology.
 
Wearable Technology - Huawei TalkBand B1 and Alcatel OneTouch Pop Fit at MWC 2014

In the technology world wearable is where it’s at right now, but as we’ve been seeing at Mobile World Congress this week it’s not all about what fits around your wrist...

At first glance the +Huawei TalkBand B1 follows the model of other fitness bands with an intelligent removable capsule secured in a simple wristband. It sports a 1.4-inch curved OLED screen and captures your activity through an accelerometer — so far, so standard, you might say.

However, pop out the water-resistant capsule from its rubberised wrist support and you’ll find that it doubles as a Bluetooth headset letting you make and receive calls from your smartphone.

Huawei describes the TalkBand B1 as world’s first ‘Hybrid Smart Band’ and with prices slated at 99 euros we think it might tempt many into the world of wearable tech.

Alcatel has taken a different approach with its OneTouch Pop Fit, zapping a smartphone with a shrink ray (although we’re confident there’s more to it than that) to produce a 2.8-inch touchscreen wearable. While in the past we’ve seen media players miniaturised to within an inch of their lives the OneTouch Pip Fit stands out because it still functions as a fully-fledged phone. Pre-loaded with RunKeeper and with 16 or 32 GB of storage for many marathons worth of music the OneTouch Pop Fit comes with an armband and selection of colourful covers and is set to retail at 89 euros.

Mobile World Congress 2014 promised to be big on wearables and, with exciting products from the likes of Sony and Samsung plus intriguing statements of intent from HTC and Motorola, it hasn’t disappointed. What wearable technology innovations would you like to see between now and next year’s Mobile World Congress? Let us know in the comments below. ^DM

I preach and practice what I call smartphone creativity. iFilmmaking and mobile journalism have been particular passions for the last couple of years and, as those who know me will know, I'll happily talk until I'm blue in the face about iPhoneography apps and accessories. So here's an interview I did for TV about a year ago talking through some my professional mobile filmmaking rig. I'd love to year your thoughts.
