Android is on Fire at Mobile World Congress 2010
Feb 16, 2010 11:30 AM –
There are many other mobile products unveiling like Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 which really looks promising. However at Mobile World Congress 2010 in Spain, Google’s Android operating system is fully saturating the annual event with the release of many new phones and carriers. Here is a quick recap of the phones coming out…
Android Phones unveiled at MWC:
Acer beTouch Android Phones
Lower end to prosumer smart phones set to ship in early Q2 of this year.

Acer Liquid E
Marketed as “The world’s first Snapdragon™ and Android™ 2.1 smartphone”, Acer launched a series of Android phones; the Acer Liquid being the flagship device.

Samsung Beam Projector Android Phone
Samsung showcased its own mobile operating system called Bada but still gave Google fan boys a snack with their Samsung Beam (code name Halo) phone with reportedly latest Android OS version 2.1, TouchWiz skin and second lens that is actually a projector! No bulky attachment add-on like the LG eXpo.
Motorola CLIQ XT/QUENCH
Motorola CLIQ XT does away with the physical QWERTY keyboard for all touch screen, an upgrade of the Motorola Cliq.

Xperia X10 Mini & Xperia X10 Mini Pro
My assumption is that these phones are aimed at low end to prosumers. The Mini and Mini Pro are dainty versions of Sony Ericsson’s most anticipated Xperia X10 phones in a compact screen size of 2.5 inches and running at about half the processing power or sibling (which is what most Android phones today have). The Mini Pro features a slide out QWERTY physical keyboard.

Garmin-ASUS Nuvifone A50
Targeting mobile users with strong focus on their navigation maps, Garmin-ASUS launched a sleek cell phone.

Huawei Android Phones
Huawei’s announced phones and an MID device… but again we haven’t seen nothing (physically) yet! Here’s pics though…
Huawei u8800 Android Phone
Huawei u8300 Android Phone
Huawei U8100 Android Phone
Huawei u8110 Android Phone
Huawei SmaKit S7 HID
Made of a solid mold of aluminum, HTC upgraded their Hero phone to the Legend. Of course touting Android OS 2.1 and new HTC Sense UI.
Think Google’s Nexus One but without Google’s strong-hold on the device design, mashed with HTC’s Sense user interface software, which brings your information and social media to you on the home screen! Like the htc hd2 but don’t like the software, well fortunately the htc desire runs Android so maybe that will swing your decision?
