Your favorite announcement from MWC?
We saw a ton of Android at Mobile World Congress, and that's a really good indication of just what kind of year 2011 will be for Android fans like you and I.
With so much to absorb, it's always fun to see what everyone else feels is their favorite -- that's what this thread is for
Take a minute to go over it all one more time and let's hear what you think was the best Android news from Barcelona!
And of course I have to start with mine
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
Yeah, it will probably be locked up tighter than a drum, and it runs SE's Timescape UI over Android, but I'm really digging the "boat" shape. And since I have a bunch of phones here to hack on, I guess I can overlook it all and use it stock. As long as the hardware is up to SE standards, including the camera, I'll deal with it.
Now bring it to the US please.

The Google Booth
That place is paradise and made me really jealous. I hope they return next year with an equal if not a more awesome booth design and 'play pen'.
and if the booth doesn't count, then the Viewsonic 350.
That dual-sim phone is pretty awesome and sure as heck solves a lot of problems for travelers.

Either Wifi XOOM or Galaxy S2. Not sure which
Biggest dissapointment: HTC Announcements. Would be cool if they had some competition to the high end moto/samsung phones. They build is awesome, the internals aren't. Expected more from them.

best smartphone: HTC Desire S (best looking design + smooth running system, it's not all about the power ! )
best tablet: HTC Flyer (only tablet that looks different from all the others and introduces new features that no other tablet manufacters has come with --> changed their own gui for tablet, new pen feature ...)
best folow-up: LG, like the balls they have to jump into the 3D screens/cameras, now I'm only curious how many hours it can last ...

In terms of phone hardware, I'd say either the LG 3D or Samsung Galaxy S 2. I'm very partial to the Galaxy line(using the epic atm) due to how amazing the screen is- no other android phone comes even remotely close to them, and the S 2's SAMOLED+ just furthers that gap. As for the 3D, the specs are great...
But my biggest surprise was the quad-core announcement, didn't expect that until next year at the least. If I don't upgrade my laptop, my cellphone will have more cores than it come August. WTFruit.
