the MWC has been more about laptops than mobiles

  • 26

The Mobile World Congress is an event open to technology, but focused on mobile telephony and wireless networks. However the MWC 2022 has been especially prolific for computers, especially laptops, which have been unexpected protagonists of an era where attention was stolen from smartphonessmart watches, augmented reality glasses or wireless headphones.

The very light Galaxy Book 2 Pro and Pro 360, the first ThinkPad based on ARMS, and another that seems designed for the company but convinces gamers, a convertible Huawei with an OLED screen that looks spectacular, a MateBook X Pro that raises the level of Huawei laptops and even a all in one handsome guy that instantly earns the label of “the iMac with Windows.” Computers that have encouraged the market surely more than what the newly introduced smartphones have shaken the telephony market.

Running out of mobile battery can be a problem, so this company has had an idea: rent powerbanks by the hour

Between the pandemic and the competition for attention

Samsung’s decision to pull its flagship out of the show and present it a few weeks earlier began to erode the Mobile. An event that was previously conceived as the perfect space for big launches and then It came to be considered by many as a space where the viewer’s attention was too much disputed. The economy of attention, the events of attention.

2021 was a spectacular year for computer sales, despite the shortage of chips, and the first events of 2022 are in line

The death of the mobile telephony division of LG, the setback of Sony that no longer announced that it would not have any presence at the fair, the non-appearance of HTC, the KO of Microsoft’s Nokia, the state of Huawei since the commercial war between China and the United States, a surprisingly shy OnePlus… Various news that have accumulated in recent years and have tarnished the mobile aspect of this event. Little, Honor or Realme have taken the baton, but there remains that feeling that the most important thing is not the mobiles, but the accessories, such as watches or headphones; and computers, especially those aimed at gaming or to professional environments.

Perhaps the pandemic has also helped with this trend. Laptops are more coveted in companies that until 2020 preferred to work with desktop computers and remote work has shaken the sale of convertibles and even desktops themselves. The 1920s, with the post-PC era stabilized, have brought an unexpected return to good computer sales. And the MWC is a button. Perhaps the post-smartphone era is not so much that of watches and headphones as that of giving prominence to the PC again. Something that leaves us all with the face of doing divisions with decimals.
