Another mobile event has finally wrapped up only this year we had the opportunity to enjoy New Orleans for CTIA 2012. Below we’ll run down a quick list of some of the things that were worth seeing this trip. With Samsung and HTC making announcements earlier in the year we were worried, but still found plenty of excitement in the Big Easy. To start off right hit our CTIA 2012 Portal for all the goods, then enjoy the pictures, galleries, and video below.

From accessories, cases, charging packs and more we saw plenty in New Orleans but we’ll start off with the new HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE heading to Verizon. Officially announced at the show we have some hands-on and plenty of pictures of the latest DROID to get the Verizon 4G LTE treatment.

We were covering everything live at our sister site SlashGear too. Check out what they reported by the CEO of EA games and the death of consoles and mobile gaming. Then we saw some impressive water-proof techniques to save our precious devices from HzO and their Waterblock.

OtterBox had a slew of new cases for the HTC One series, the iPhone, the new DROID Inc 4G LTE, and even the Galaxy Note. We also took a minute to check out more from team LG, stopping in for a hands-on with the LG Optimus Vu Phablet — as well as the Tegra 3 quad-core LG Optimus 4X.

The folks from Kyocera (remember them?) announced a few new budget friendly Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones and you can see our hands-on of both of the new phones from Kyocera by clicking here. More importantly, we also enjoyed some time with the brand new HTC EVO 4G LTE and have some impressive pics from its camera below but to start here is our hands-on video.

ZTE was showing off their new 10-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with 4G LTE running on a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm processor, one of the faster tablets on the block and we even had a few minutes to sit down and talk with the CMO and Community Managers from the popular 3rd party keyboard for Android SwiftKey.

We were able to enjoy more time with the Samsung Galaxy S III and even got some hands-on showing specifically some changes to the software side of things with their improved TouchWiz user interface. I really want this phone and can’t wait for more details on the US launch.

Last but not least was more about the impressive new HTC EVO 4G LTE. Thanks to the folks from HTC I had the opportunity to take a full tour of New Orleans as well as test out the 8 megapixel camera on the EVO 4G LTE in our New Orleans photo tour through the lens of the EVO 4G LTE. The photo below was captured by the new EVO while on a moving vehicle — impressive right?

We have a lot of interesting news we can’t share yet at this time, and tons of exciting things we’ll be bringing you over the course of the next few days and weekend. Once more hit our CTIA 2012 Portal for all our news, and stay tuned to Android Community for more coming soon.
