Back in February, LG announced its latest Optimus L Series devices, including the Optimus L3II, the Optimus L5II, and the Optimus L7II. All three devices were on show at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but LG couldn’t tell us when two of them — the Optimus L3II and the Optimus L5II — would be going on sale.
The company has now announced that the Optimus L5II has launched in Brazil ahead of its international rollout.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — Sony’s initial unveiling of the Xperia Tablet Z came just after CES back in January, so Mobile World Congress here in Barcelona this week is the first chance we’ve had to get our hands on it. On paper, the device is very impressive, featuring a speedy quad-core processor, a high-resolution display, and a sleek form factor that measures just 6.9mm thick and boasts water resistance.
But specifications aren’t everything; we were itching to find out what the Xperia Tablet Z is like, so we went hands on with it this morning to find out.
Cult of Android will soon be on its way to Barcelona for this year’s Mobile World Congress — which kicks off Sunday, February 24 — where we’re expecting a whole host of announcements regarding new smartphones, tablets, apps, and accessories. More than 65,000 people will attend the event, and they’re all there for one thing: to see what’s on the horizon in the world of mobile for 2013.
We’re expecting new devices from Samsung, LG, ZTE, Huawei, Nokia, Asus, and more — and you can follow all of our coverage from here. In the meantime, here’s what you can look forward to.
One of the devices we’ve been most looking forward to getting our hands on at Mobile World Congress next month is the HTC M7, a new flagship Android smartphone that’s set to introduce HTC’s new Sense 5.0 user interface. If the latest rumor is accurate, however, the M7 won’t be at MWC; it’ll get its own launch event the week before instead.
Google is said to be preparing a second-generation Nexus 10 tablet for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The device will reportedly offer a quad-core processor and faster graphics, making it a significant improvement over its predecessor — which was only launched last November.
Rumors surrounding the Sony Xperia Tablet Z first surfaced last week, and we expected Sony to confirm them at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. But in Japan on Monday morning, the new flagship tablet was unveiled. And boy, does it look good.
Specifications for Sony’s upcoming Xperia Tablet Z were leaked on Wednesday, and we were looking forward to seeing the slate’s grand unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. But according to one Japanese carrier, Sony’s new flagship tablet will be unveiled on the company’s home turf on January 22.
