Mobile World Congress (3GSM) roundup

I survived another GDC, and the Mobile World Congress (3GSM) ended almost 2 weeks ago (already!), so here’s a roundup of what was interesting and exciting to me in Barcelona this year…

1) Nokia

N96, successor to the N95 with 16 GB of internal storage and micro-SDHC, DVB-H tuner, but without xenon flash or lens cover:

N78, slim successor to the N73 with FM transmitter, HSDPA, WiFi, and GPS, but only a 3.2 megapixel Zeiss AF camera without xenon flash or lens cover:

2) Sony Ericsson

Xperia X1, slim Windows Mobile 6.1 (!) device designed by HTC, with touch screen, sliding QWERTY keyboard, HSUPA, WiFi, and GPS, but only a 3.2 megapixel AF camera without xenon flash or lens cover – definitely awesome:

3) Samsung

G810, a Symbian device similar to the Nokia N95, but with xenon flash, lens cover and 3x optical zoom (!) – possibly my next device:
