4-Plus-1 Tegra 3 system on a chip. While the device itself isn't quite ready for prime time yet, Fujitsu is showing off a new Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich phone with some tricks up it sleeve, namely an incredible 13.1 megapixel camera and a waterproof design. Officially designated "quad-core prototype" for the time being, expect to see something similar coming from Fujitsu sometime this year - though probably not outside of Asia, at least at first.

HTC One V is perhaps the least-covered of the three. But as the cheapest and therefore most accessible of the Android phones, it's arguably the most important piece in the strategy: if HTC can win converts on the low end, it's more likely to garner repeat business. Android Community swung by HTC's booth at Mobile World Congress to get a better look at the budget-minded Ice Cream Sandwich phone, and while it's obviously not the high profile machine that the One X and One V are, it's definitely worth a look.
isn't the first time we've talked about FXI Tech's Cotton Candy "world's smallest PC" but here at Mobile World Congress we learned some exciting news about this neat little dual-core packing computer. FXI has promised that it will be receiving Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in March, they are just waiting on driver support that should be available any day now.
we got to glance at the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. We received a few snapshots with it alongside the original 5.3" Galaxy Note for an easy comparison. Usually you don't see devices ship with Adobe Photoshop, but the Note 10.1 will already include Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas - a few apps that cost $10 each on the Android Market.
before Google's deal to buy out Motorola was approved by both the US and EU, they had stated that each company would remain completely separate from on another. And had stressed that Motorola wouldn't be 'favored' by Google in any way. Recently here at MWC, Google's Andy Rubin had a few words to say on the subject, as many people have been asking why Motorola's CEO Sanjay Jha would be replaced by Google employee Dennis Woodside.
Galaxy Note 10.1. We swung by Samsung's booth later in the day to get a closer look. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is physically similar to the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (man, they've got to work on those names) but uses a faster processor, an active digitizer stylus and Samsung's customized apps. As an extension of the original Galaxy Note it's pretty compelling - much more so than the lukewarm refresh that the primary Galaxy Tab line seems to be getting.
stole the show yesterday at Mobile World Congress, as HTC showed off their new 'hero devices' for 2012. All three looked extremely nice, and going back to the aluminum unibody as we saw in the HTC Legend a while back was a nice touch. As you know, HTC will launch two version of the One X, an international version, and one specially designed to take advantage of AT&T's 4G LTE network. It seems Best Buy has already jumped to pre-orders for the device, and it's sure to get some attention.
a trio of new smartphones, one of which is the rather temptingly titled ViewPhone 4S. As you might have guessed, it's got more in common with a certain Cupertino phone than a similar name. We took a gander at ViewSonic's MWC booth to see if it could match the goose.
