I see why Forsooth used last years MWC sign. It is difficult to find a pic less than 600 pixels for this event. Most seemed about 630 pixels or so.

Many of the devices at MWC will be used at least part time as eReaders.
Here are some excerpts about the event from

MWC 2014 news, rumours and what to expect
by Sam Loveridge 21 January 2014


"Sony
Earlier this year, it was rumoured that Sony would launch its next flagship, codenamed "Sirius" and expected to be called the Sony Xperia Z2, in Barcelona next month.

LG
in fact, the latest rumours tip a series of mid-range Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone will be part of LG’s MWC announcements, with several already spotted on HTML5Test earlier this month.

There’s also been rumours of an LG-made Google Nexus 10 2014 tablet, plus it registered a Google Glass rival called the "Glasstic" so that could also make an appearance.

Samsung
Another smartphone that could make an MWC appearance is the heavily rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite, a smaller, lower-res version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Nokia
is tipped to launch a pair of new devices at MWC, building on the successes of the camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

The Nokia Lumia 2020 is supposedly the name of the 8-inch tablet that will launch at MWC 2014, alongside the new flagship Nokia Lumia 1820.

HTC
This year, HTC is tipped to launch its new flagship that’s currently codenamed the HTC M8, but has been given the (rather silly) moniker of the HTC One Two. It’s not clear whether HTC will have a separate event, or use MWC as a launch platform as before.

The HTC M8 is said to feature a 5-inch 1080p full HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and run Android 4.4 KitKat with the new HTC Sense 6.0 UI.

Google
It is possible an updated Google Nexus 10 could make an appearance, especially as it’s the last of the Google range to get an update this year.

ZTE
Rumours suggest it could pull a new flagship model out of the MWC bag this year, most likely in the form of the 6.44-inch ZTE Nubia Z7.

Tizen
is scheduled to have a rather large presence at MWC 2014, including the launch of the first Tizen OS running hardware. Samsung is tipped to launch its own Tizen OS smartphones at the event, with other manufacturers like NTT Domoco also tipped to launch Tizen devices"

Actually, Docomo has announced that they will not be releasing any Tizen phone this year.

Do you have a reference url handy?

Does that statement cover Tizens from everyone?

I read it on some Japanese site that covers mobile stuff, sorry I didn't save anything since Tizen doesn't particularly interest me. A Docomo spokesman said the "timing for Tizen devices isn't right". Now, remember that Japanese doesn't differentiate between singular and plural so he could have meant device, no way of knowing, but a general statement like that would imply a general, hence plural, policy.
