High on everyone's list is, of course, Samsung. There's been a lot of speculation that the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet will be unveiled at the show, though Samsung has no press conference planned, and hasn't made a point of teasing any new hardware leading up to MWC. Still, Samsung unveiled a number of new products on the down-low at MWC last year, like the Galaxy Beam. A refreshed Tab lineup could be in store, as Samsung chose MWC as the venue for the Galaxy Tab 2's announcement last year. Needless to say, the Samsung booth is on our list of stops.

HTC will likely be showing off the freshly-announced One, which we've already had some hands-on time with. LG is set show us some of their new products, and I'm personally hoping to get a look at the new 5.5" version of the Optimus G. NVIDIA will be displaying demos of its new Tegra 4i processor (and, we're guessing, the Phoenix reference platform). Huawei and ZTE will be both be holding press events to unveil new devices. Finally, we're expecting a new Transformer tablet from ASUS, based on this teaser video.

It's going to be a busy week, and we'll be bringing the news to you as quickly as we can.
