After indicating it would not announce the Galaxy S III at MWC last week, Samsung has now all but confirmed to PCMag it won't be showing off anything particularly exciting in Barcelona this month - because they won't be holding any sort of press conference during the event. Yikes.

After the S III unveil rumor was shot down, we had been guessing that Samsung would be using this opportunity to announce some sort of successor to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but that now seems exceptionally unlikely, as well. Samsung is known for its high production value keynotes and press events, and we highly doubt they'd unveil any kind of noteworthy mobile computing product without a full-blow dog and pony show to go with it.

Sad news indeed.

    I think Samsung is waiting to see what apple does so they can one-up them....and or make sure apple wont be able to sue them to stop their products.

    It's not about the quantity, its about the quality.

    Sounds like they are trying to duplicate the effect Apple has with their keynote announcements. It makes sense and it's kinda amusing to watch. I like that Samsung is trying the celebrity style approach while HTC is approaching it more from the social/gorilla marketing style.

    It's disappointing that we won't be seeing a press conference or the Samsung Galaxy S3 at Mobile World Congress. I wonder if Samsung has something else under its sleeve to generate buzz during the event.
