Macworld plans to bring iPhone to MWC 2011

Organizers for the GSM Association's Mobile World Congress revealed today that Apple would have an unofficial presence at the phone trade show through Macworld Mobile. The magazine will have full-day training and sessions for developers specific to iOS devices. The next Congress is due to start February 14 next year.

The presence isn't supported by Apple but could represent its first footprint at the annual Barcelona gathering. Apple has regularly avoided attending third-party, platform-independent trade shows since Steve Jobs' return. It first focused on outside but Apple-focused events and has gradually withdrawn to where it only hosts its own shows.

While the company has often been the subject of comparisons and informal talk at Mobile World Congress, its absence has usually given free rein to LG, Nokia, RIM and other phone giants that may be losing influence to the iPhone but which can use the show to draw added attention to their own work.
