Samsung has reigned supreme in Twitter buzz relating to Mobile World Congress, but one week before the start of the show, HTC has leaped over the Korean handset giant on news of a new “superphone” being unveiled in Barcelona, according to social media number cruncher anly.tk.
MoDaCo and several other gadget blogs have recently begun leaking details of the HTC One X or Endeavor, an ultra-skinny Android 4.0 device, which could be the world’s first smartphone to contain Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The news vaulted HTC to the upper echelons of Twitter chatter, according to anly.tk, generating nearly 5000 tweets with MWC-related hash tags last week.
HTC recorded about 12 percent of the 38,427 MWC-tagged posts, so buzz surrounding the show is definitely becoming more dispersed since we last reported on anly.tk’s numbers. Samsung, LG and Nokia all made good showings.
