MWC canceled over coronavirus fears.
The GSM Association, the organizers of the conference that was slated to take place at the end of the month in Barcelona, said it won't happen, according to Bloomberg.
Many high-profile companies, including LG, AT&T, Sony, Nvidia, Intel, Facebook and Ericsson had pulled out. The GSMA stated over the weekend that the conference would still go ahead, with stringent health-monitoring policies in place. Apparently, it had a change of heart.
