Facebook (FB) 
A week after it was announced that WhatsApp was being bought by Facebook for $19B, the service has said it is going to expand to voice communications later this year. Hmmmm... so all the haters that thought Mr Zuckerberg overpaid may have to do a recalculation. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum, said: "We want to make sure people always have the ability to stay in touch with their friends and loved ones really affordably. We're going to introduce voice on WhatsApp in the second quarter of this year." Mr Koum revealed the service would first be available in iPhone and Android apps later expanding to Windows Phone and some BlackBerry devices.

Sony (SNE)
Wearable devices were also part of Sony's new releases showcased at the Mobile World Congress - SmartBand SWR10 which provides users with a track of everything they do. t CES 2014, Sony introduced SmartWear Experience as representing emotion as well as motion - moving, and being moved, now we see exactly what this means, as SmartBand and its innovative core extend beyond fitness tracking, to add colourful, fun entertainment experiences to users' lives.

SNE also has introduced the Xperia Tablet, thinner and lightning fast with Snapdragon chip and 3GB ram
