Buenas noches gadgeteers. I've just arrived in sunny Barcelona for the year's biggest mobile phone show, Mobile World Congress – and it looks like some manufacturers are so excited about their products that they've announced them before the show has even started.

Sitting in my inbox when I arrived were press releases from both LG and Sony Ericsson giving the lowdown on some tasty new handsets for 2008. Sony Ericsson looks to be boasting some real treats with, among others, two new Cyber-shot phones.

The C702 (pictured) might only have a 3.2MP sensor but the ability to use its built-in GPS to tag your snaps and sort them by where they were taken is a phone first. Meanwhile, upping the megapixel count to five is the C902 with auto focus and face detection. LG has the KT-610 - a Symbian-powered smartphone with GPS, QWERTY keypad and HSDPA for internet that's quicker than Theo Walcott after a few too many Red Bulls.

In a world first, British company ARM is also showing off a prototype phone running Google's operating system, Android, which i'm eager to track down. Will it be as sexy as multi-touch? I'll be among the first to find out.

And do you know what the best thing is? We haven't even started yet. I'll be trawling the halls for the next two and a half days on the look-out for which cool new phones will be fighting for a place in your pocket in 2008. Keep an eye on this blog and our news feed for the latest as i see it. We'll also have some video footage going live soon after i get back to Blighty so keep your browser pointed at the only gadget site that matters - Stuff.tv.
