We’re sure it’s already in your calendars, but we wanted to give you a quick reminder that next week we’re at MWC in Barcelona.

For all the news as it happens, make sure you’re following us on Twitter.

Next up, we all know Android adverts never fail to disappoint. Aired at the Grammys, just days ago, ‘Monotune’, was no exception. In the clip you can see a pianist playing the third movement of Beethoven’s much loved ‘Moonlight Sonata’ on two different pianos. Whilst one features the usual 88 pitches, representing Android, the other is tuned so that only one note can be played – middle C. Android asks – what would happen if we were all the same?

Now, from one piece of music to another, how would you like to not only meet singer songwriter Charlie Puth, but also travel to New York?

One of the world’s fastest-rising pop stars, with three Grammy awards under his belt, Charlie Puth is perhaps best known for his record breaking hit with Wiz Khalifa ‘See You Again’ – a hit that quickly became a YouTube phenomenon and even broke the Spotify record for most streams in a single day ever.

If you’re a fan, your dreams could soon turn to reality, courtesy of Xperia™ Lounge. In its latest competition, Xperia Lounge is offering one lucky winner the chance to win a trip for two to New York City (travel and hotel included) to see him play live at Webster Hall on 7th April, before meeting him backstage.

All you have to do is answer one simple question. You can enter by following this. Good luck!
