How are you getting to work? Notes live from Mobile World Congress

We had a very busy day here at Mobile World Congress; the booth was consistently busy with customers coming to see all the cool things we’re doing at HP.  I’m sure you saw the news about some of the new devices that are now available.  Hybrids, convertibles and new cool tablets were the hot topics of the day.  Check out the HP 360…

I spent a good part of the day demonstrating HP Anywhere and the HP Access Catalog to what seemed like an endless stream of people interested in learning more.   Everyone I talked to is struggling with how to deal with the BYOD challenges that you are facing too—fear not, you are not alone.  When I was doing my demo, I got to use a cool new red HP Slate 10 HD.  This is a GREAT tablet.  It is light and bright, consistently connected and great in the demo.  The textured back is really nice; I never worried about it slipping out of my hands. (I’m already trying to figure out when I’m going to get one. At under $300, I think it’s a great deal.)

Another highlight from the show is all of the different car companies that are demonstrating their vision for the future. They are displaying cars that are close to being fully autonomous and “self-driving” to a variety of “Car2Mobile Device” – M2M integration solutions.  It’s clear that the car is yet another app platform and falls within the concept of BYOS—the theme from yesterday’s post (Bring Your Own Stuff). Cars probably need to be included in the list–especially if it drives you it to work.

In my next post I’ll share with you what I saw in the Apps Planet expo.

What do you think?  How soon will we have self-driving cars on the market? If it makes my commute easier, I will buy one tomorrow!
