The top 5 stories from Mobile World Congress

The Mobile World Congress trade show wound down today, leaving in its wake more than 60,000 exhausted attendees (the figure represents a record number of visitors). This year's event hosted nearly 1,400 exhibiting companies and occupied more than 58,600 net square meters of exhibition and business meeting space, according to the GSMA. Further, more than 2,900 members of the press attended--and, as usual, the Fierce editorial team was out in full force for Mobile World Congress. Jason Ankeny, Mike Dano, Sue Marek and Phil Goldstein spent the week in Barcelona, Spain, covering all the press conference, keynote and show floor news.
