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.
LG showed off a number of new handsets at Mobile World Congress last week, but it seems the company hasn’t quite finished yet. It has today unveiled the Optimus LTE III, a new Android-powered smartphone that will succeed the Optimus LTE II (obviously), with a 4.7-inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel camera, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Many questioned whether Sony was really committed to Mozilla’s Firefox OS this week when the company announced it had “an ambition” to launch its first Firefox OS smartphones in 2014. But to prove it is getting behind the new platform, the Japanese company has released an experimental Firefox OS ROM for the Xperia E, which anyone can download and install on their device — providing they have the know-how.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — European carrier Orange is at Mobile World Congress this week to show off its latest lineup of own-brand Android devices. There are three altogether — called the Lumo, Nivo, and San Remo — and like the company’s previous own-brand devices, they’re midrange and entry-level devices aimed at budget-conscious consumers who want a modern Android smartphone.
Two of them are particularly interesting: The San Remo is Orange’s first large-screen smartphone, packing a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display; while the Lumo is its first to boast speedy 4G LTE connectivity.
We went hands-on with all three devices to see if they’re any good.
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.

BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — Cat isn’t normally known for its smartphones, but here at Mobile World Congress, the company has unveiled the new Cat B15 — a rugged, Android-powered device that’s almost begging for a good beating.

BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — During a Samsung developer conference here at Mobile World Congress this morning, the Korean company unveiled a new service called Samsung Wallet, which lets Samsung smartphone owners turn tickets, coupons, membership cards, boarding passes, and more into digital cards that they can store in a virtual wallet.
The service probably sounds familiar, and it is — Samsung Wallet is basically Apple’s Passbook, but for Samsung phones. It works in almost exactly the same way, and looks very similar, too.
