isn't their first Android smartphone, but the new CAT B15 could be a good alternative for those out in the field. This is one of those rugged smartphones that actually might be worth taking a look at thanks to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
LG has also made some smaller announcements. Of which, one is actually being touted as the "world's smallest." This one happens to be the LG WCP-300 Wireless Charger. Another item being shown off is the flip cover case for the Optimus G Pro handset. We recently spent a few minutes checking out each of these while on the show floor here at Mobile World Congress.
Google Now has been one of our favorite features in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and I'm pretty sure we're not alone in that thinking either. Google's continued to update and improve both the feature in general, as well as all the backend services. However, today our very own Chris Davies and sister site SlashGear sat down with Google's Matias Duarte to talk Google Now, Project Glass, and more.
Lenovo have announced a trio of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean powered tablets to take on the market. More importantly, Lenovo wants to take on Google's own Nexus 7 with two aggressively designed and priced 7-inch tablets in their new A-series. Then we have a new Lenovo S-6000 10.1-inch tablet also coming soon. Check out all the pictures and specs below.
Samsung has talked about BYOD (bring your own device) before and already have the SAFE for Enterprise program which has always been touted as offering "solutions that include the necessary security and feature enhancements suitable for business use." Coming out of Mobile World Congress however, it seems Samsung has taken the BYOD offerings a step further by adding some additional layers of security. The new program is called KNOX and this one is said to be the "comprehensive mobile solution" for work and play.
Sony is ready to take on the Android tablet market again with their new and improved Xperia Tablet Z. Claiming it's the "world's thinnest 10.1-inch tablet" it offers some top tier specs all in a sleek and lightweight design. Their previous tablets haven't been too popular, but Sony hopes to shake things up with the all new Z. It's only 6.9mm thin, has a quad-core processor, and will control your TV with ease. Read on for our full hands-on.
Alcatel One Touch Idol X announcement earlier and in addition to that, we also have some hands-on images to share. The One Touch Idol X is the handset with the edge-to-edge 5-inch 1080p display and Jelly Bean. There is also a variety of colors, quad-core processor and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.
LG have unleashed a full array of smartphones here at MWC 2013, and we've been able to get our hands on all of them. For those who don't want a massive 5.5-inch HD phone (since that isn't for everyone) LG has already announced three additional smartphones to hit all the other respective size points. Just like last year, we now have the LG Optimus L series, only this time it's the L II. Below is the new L7 II, L5 II, and L3 II. Odd names, but check em out.
Grand Memo here at Mobile World Congress and while it is hard to ignore the large size, the handset also has some other notable features. For example, the Grand Memo is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Coincidentally, this is the first time we are seeing that particular processor being used. If you remember back, it was announced in early-January.
