BGR at MWC 2015: On the hunt for the next big thing

The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday.

But that’s not all that’s happening at MWC, as there will be plenty of interesting products on display coming from much smaller players. More →

Apple Watch vs. Pebble Time: New renders give a fantastic side-by-side comparison

The Apple Watch is going to be available in stores soon, but Apple’s smartwatch is not the only such product you can buy, as plenty of companies are also selling high-tech watches.

The project was an instant smash and has already topped $11 million in pledges, well over its initial $500,000 funding goal. More →

Not sure which Apple Watch to buy? Here’s every single model Apple will make

When Apple unveiled its “one more thing” at the end of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus media event, the company repeatedly spoke of the numerous ways the device can be customized. Apple Watch buyers will be able to choose a case type, size, strap model, digital watch face, apps and many other features

In total, Apple said there will be millions of different combinations — likely a valid claim when taking into account all the different things buyers can customize — but Business Insider points out there are just 22 versions of the Apple Watch to choose from. More →

Massive SIM card hack might have been too sophisticated to be caught in time

A new Snowden leak a few days ago revealed that the NSA and GCHQ conducted a complex hack operation that focused on obtaining the secure encryption keys that protect mobile communications in devices with SIM cards. A subsequent report revealed that the goal of spy agencies might have been a lot bigger, as they may have been hunting for other security keys that would let them deploy spyware on any mobile device with a SIM card inside, and users would have no idea that anything had happened.
