After four action-packed days, the 2012 Mobile World Congress has come to an end. As CNET puts Barcelona, Spain, and a couple dozen new smartphone announcements in the rearview mirror, we bring you the sights of the wireless and mobile industry's most important mobile trade show. Barcelona's Fira Montjuic has been the home of Mobile World Congress since it moved from Cannes, France, in 2006. The complex of exhibition halls and courtyards sits between Placa d'Espanya and Montjuic, a large hill with some of the Barcelona's most important sights, including the Joan Miro Museum and the 1992 Olympic stadium. The white telecommunications tower on the right side of Montjuic in the distance was designed by prominent Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
Mobile World Congress is so big that it takes over an entire street with temporary pavilions and huge monitors that broadcast keynote addresses from atomic slim 2 case for apple iphone xs max - black/transparent one of the halls, The show is so massive, in fact, that beginning in 2013 it will move to the Fira Gran Via, a new exhibition center closer to the airport that opened late last year, Though the modern facilities will have their appeal, you can't beat the Montjiuc location for character, The Venetian Towers in the distance serve as the show's main entrance from Placa d'Espanya..
The Fira complex climbs the hill past the Font Majica, a huge fountain that puts on a spectacular water and light show at night. As we said, it's spectacular. The illuminated fountains extend all the way down the venue. A tech reporter's dream come true: a wired Ethernet connection at every seat. Wireless networks at most big speeches and press conferences are crushed by interference and heavy traffic, and that ticks off reporters while messing up Wi-Fi-based demos. HTC's press conference was a breath of fresh air. Next up: power strips, please.

Here's a close-up shot of the winged horse's smartphone skin. Towering above the Fira is the Palau Nacional, or National Palace, which houses the Catalan Museum of Art. The National Palace, illuminated here with spotlights on the eve of Mobile World Congress, looms above the mobile technology trade show. Two rows of heavily armed policemen prevented anyone from entering the Fira when student protestors demonstrated near Mobile World Congress. Four giants of the cell phone world, Samsung, ZTE, Huawei, and LG, face off in Hall 8.
