MWC Scorecard: Who were the winners and losers in Barcelona?

The FierceWireless editorial team was in full force in Barcelona last week covering all aspects of the 2009 Mobile World Congress. If you were there, you may have seen Jason Ankeny, Phil Goldstein and me as we hustled to press conferences, attended the keynote addresses and visited with exhibitors on the show floor. Check out our photos of press conferences, keynotes and GSMA Gala here.

On the long plane ride home to the U.S., the Fierce team had time to contemplate some of the themes of the show and decide what some of the big news announcements meant to the industry. Clearly some companies at MWC emerged stronger than ever. Likewise, there were those that failed to get their message heard among the noise and hype. In tough economic times, it's particularly important for companies to make a statement at Mobile World Congress because it often sets the tone for the rest of the year.

On that note, the Fierce editorial team decided to compile a scorecard on the companies that we think emerged as the winners and losers at last week's confab. Check out the MWC scorecard here. As always, we welcome your suggestions and criticisms. Please use the comment section to tell us which companies made an impression on you (either positively or negatively) last week at MWC.  --Sue
