    Today is the start of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, but before we start the deluge of MWC articles we have to share some news from the weekend.

    • 1.6GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 16 to 32GB of internal storage
    • A microSD card slot for expansion up to 64GB

    • 1.3 megapixel camera on the front
    • 4,600mAh battery

    Definately a "must have" device. Perfect for what I need. Looks like my Nexus 7 will be heading to my son!

    My thoughts exactly. My kids love to play on my Nexus 7 as it is, I may give it to them and snag one of these for myself. Would love to know what kind of display it will have.

    With the home, menu and back buttons on the bezel, does this remove them from the screen so that there is more app area? I don't remember how it was on the Note II when I played with it at Verizon.
