    CNet's Notable Phones of Mobile World Congress 2012


    The folks at CNet did a writeup sharing what they called the "Show stealers: The memorable phones of Mobile World Congress 2012." These following phones were their favorites that debuted at the show (in no particular order):

    Nokia 808 PureView -
    41-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and more! (This one is technically not Android but the camera in it could just be the tip of the iceberg for future phone camera tech.)

    Samsung Galaxy Beam -
    This is the phone that can project images and video onto walls. Of course, it's immediately obvious application is for boardroom meetings and business presentations. However, who wouldn't like to play Angry Birds on their living room wall?

    LG Optimus 3D Max -
    3D tech will probably just be relegated to history as a passing fad, just like it did before (until the day when they perfect holographic tech). However, this one can supposedly record video and display apps like Google Earth in 3D, which seems worth a second look. It also comes with a 4.3-inch WVGA display, and an NFC so it could be worth it for many users.

    Huawei Ascend D Quad -
    This one has a custom quad-core CPU powering, and the company claims it is the world's fastest smartphone. We will wait for some benchmarks before we believe this claim, but regardless, this one looks like it could become a major player in the Android world very soon.

    HTC One X -
    Of course, many folks are fans of HTC, but even if you are indifferent toward them, the specs on this monster beast are impressive. This one has a 1.5GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, an LCD 2 Gorilla Glass display, an improved camera lens (f/2.0) and sensor, Android 4.0/ Ice Cream Sandwich, Beats Audio, NFC and More! Plus, HTC has promised to reduce the bloat in Sense UI 4.0 that comes on the device, so it's hard not to be tempted by this one.

    That's a wrap-up of the major phone tech announcements out of MWC this year. What do you think? Was the show a boom, a bust, or something in between?

    Asus Vs Samsung

    The Asus Padfone was the steal of the show for me. Only if the SGS 3 would have been there, then I would have been able to make a decision on what phone to upgrade my OG Droid to.

    Yeah, but expect some kind of variant will most likely come.

    Exactly, Verizon should have their own version of it.

    Veriozn should have their own version. But who's to say they will get one. We don't know. We assume. Verizon has been playing buddy buddy with Samsung and Moto for too long. HTC is probably saying, "Yyyeaaaaaah, we get more attention elsewhere. They like us over there at AT&T and T-mobile."
    My phone is now a part of my DNA.

    really? then why did verizon skip out on Samsung's flagship phone the Galaxy S II (Galaxy nexus doesnt count as their flagship since its a google phone)
