Mobile World Congress has a history for outing some of the year’s hottest handsets. It was dominated last year by the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a device that is still rivalling the likes of the Apple iPhone 4S for the mantle of the king of the smartphone scene, though the follow up did not make an appearance this year.

However we were treated to a range of quad core smartphones, innovative tablets and even a tech loaded car.

Samsung launches

While there was no Galaxy S3, Samsung did launch some impressive kit at this year’s show.

It brought an end to weeks of rumours, officially unveiling its latest touch and pen tablet at in the form of the repeatedly leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Following on from the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, the Samsung Note 10.1 has adopted a more traditional 10.1-inch form factor with touchscreen controls and the less-standard S-Pen (a pressure sensitive stylus) and S-Note software, as well as specifically designed Adobe editing software.

In a press conference at MWC, the company said that the major difference between the Note and Tab 10.1 is the S-Pen functionality, which encourages a different user experience.

Elsewhere, Samsung expanded its array of personal media players with the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2. With a 4.2-inch WVGA touchscreen display, it is described by Samsung as “the best of Android experiences with powerful gaming on the go.” It comes preloaded with FIFA 12 and a bevy of premium EA titles.

Finally the Samsung Galaxy Beam is a new Android handset that comes sporting an inbuilt projector. The ultra-bright 15 lumens projector allowing users to seamlessly share multimedia content with others, simply by painting a nearby wall with it.
