MWC 2015: Android Community Top Picks

And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause. Here are some of the most noteworthy products to come out of MWC 2015.

Avast announces two apps that will clean up, speed up your phone

Anybody who’s anybody in the smartphone and mobile device industry is at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, including famed antivirus and security software experts Avast who have themselves just announced two new mobile apps that will aim to “clean up” our phones. “Avast GrimeFighter” is a no-nonsense clean up app, while “Avast Battery Saver” says it all in the name.

Kazam Tornado 552L stuffs robust midrange specs in 5.5mm body

Kazam is probably one of the outfits that have made the MWC 2015 in Barcelona its breakout party. Over the last few days, they have announced a number of budget phones, with specs getting better as they go. Today they announced the Kazam Tornado 552L – but hold up, this is no budget phone. The slim form factor and the metal accents may just betray an actually very serviceable midrange phone from Kazam.

Doom 3, Crysis will be coming to NVIDIA’s SHIELD Android TV

So NVIDIA’s big reveal at the MWC 2015 is an Android TV gaming hub – aptly named the NVIDIA SHIELD (yes, again). This device marks the third time this naming convention has been used for one of NVIDIA’s devices – first for what is now the SHIELD Portable, and then the SHIELD Tablet. But enough of the name, the exciting part is that you’re going to be able to run DOOM 3 and Crysis – yes, freaking Crysis – on the new NVIDIA SHIELD.

Nokia N1 hands-on: an unexpected but pleasant surprise

It might be a long, long time ago, but there was a time in mobile history when Nokia was famous for its phones. It fell on hard times and it was eventually left with a shell of former shelf. While the Finnish company is set to make its own smartphone after the sale of its mobile business to Microsoft, it has worked around that limitation and "launched" its own tablet, the Nokia N1. Limited to the Chinese market, the tablet makes a surprise appearance at MWC 2015, where we get to see and feel it first hand.

The new NVIDIA SHIELD: hands-on with Android TV, gaming style

NVIDIA is once again shuffling names, this time maybe for the last time. The NVIDIA SHIELD moniker once belonged to what is now known as the SHIELD Portable, a standalone gaming handheld that looked like a gamepad with a built-in tablet on top. Now the name is being used, without specification unlike the SHIELD Tablet, to refer to NVIDIA's MWC 2015 surprise: an Android TV device. OK, maybe it's not all too shocking considering the direction it has been going, but it makes the surprise no less pleasant nonetheless.

Windblockers let you talk outdoors with less wind noise

Windblockers might look like carved Ping-Pong balls or those little foam orbs you get from the craft section at Walmart, but that isn’t what they are. These little devices are made to attach to your smartphone mic and block wind noise so you can have a clearer conversation without shouting.

Bluetooth Keyboard BKB50 to go with Sony’s slimmest tablet

Sony may have just announced the world's slimmest tablet with the Xperia Z4 tablet, but already people are talking about accessories that can go with their future new gadget baby. Well if you plan to use it as your work station away from the office, then you definitely need the Bluetooth Keyboard BKB50 which can turn the tablet into a laptop/netbook so you can work easier and more conveniently.

Hands-on with the Lenovo Pocket Projector

Gone are the days when projectors are known to be always big and bulky. There are still many models in standard sizes but the trend now is for gadgets to be so small that they can fit inside your pocket. There is now a demand for small pocket-sized projectors if not being embedded on a phone or tablet. The latest to join the bandwagon is Lenovo with its Pocket Projector which was recently shown off at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
