Android overload at Mobile World Congress

[ Thanks to Amy Bennett for this link. ]

"The Mobile World Congress is happening in Barcelona, Spain this week, but as is typical these days a few companies couldn't wait for Day 1 of the show to start talking. Samsung, Sony, Huawei and HTC either held press conferences or spoke privately to the press yesterday, and I have to tell you, I'm already losing track of the vast number of handsets and tablets being announced. I'm not in Barcelona so like you I'm following various gadget blogs who have reporters on the scene, and scrolling through post after post of shiny new handsets is just causing my eyes to glaze over. And I'm a fan!

"I don't know what the solution is (if a solution is even needed) but I guess it's going to take the smartphone equivalent of Amazon's Kindle Fire. Some heavyweight brand is going to have to heavily customize Android and put it on a device that can somehow rise above the noise and get traction. I thought Samsung might be that company but it doesn't seem to be happening yet."
