With Mobile World Congress behind us, and all of the wildness dying down, we are left wondering what your favorite thing was from this years event. With tons and tons of new phones announced, innovative ideas flowing, and news beyond what we could comprehend it was a wild few days. Was it the Samsung Galaxy Beam, HTC's new line of phones, or the Carrier IQ information they announced?

Hit the break with us and check out some of our very own favorites, and be sure to sound off in the comments and let us know what your favorite was!

Texas Instruments shows off ultrasonic stylus that can work in three dimensions

As someone who spent more time in front of a SolidWorks workstation than any normal man would want to (or should, for that matter), I can appreciate 3D modelling. Using a product like the ultrasonic 3D stylus in conjunction with a slimmed down 3D drawing viewer on an Android tablet would would be a nerd-engineer's dream.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Based on my experience with the Galaxy Note, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't use a stylus on a day-to-day basis, but it's clear that there are a lot of people who would, and to that end, my favourite device at Mobile World Congress was the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. The tablet form factor is much better suited for stylus input, plus Samsung has refined their pen so that it has a bit more grip to it. I'm eager to see who ends up buying these and what they use it for.

HTC One Car Dock & App

I spend about 20 hours a week driving so the car dock and app with the Bluetooth dongle for the HTC One X impressed me the most. Looks like the best in car solution I've seen in an Android device so far and is something that I would genuinely use every day.


Since no-one else has, I'm going to pick the obvious choice -- the HTC One X. OK, it's lacking a removable battery, and it's made of polycarbonate instead of deep-fried aluminum, but for me this device represents an important return to form for HTC, with top-tier hardware and the best version of Sense yet.
