MWC News (Android and Chips)

If you don't know what Mobile World Congress is, think CES, but in Europe and more smartphone oriented.


Android

Finally, an iPod touch competitor: Coby introduces an $81 Android mini-tablet with a 4.3 inch screen.
Alas, it does not have the Google Play Store on it.

It's good to see HP finally doing something competitive in the Post-PC world:
Hewlett-Packard to make $169 tablet using Google’s Android software, eschewing Windows

This link contains the full HP PR text:
HP Slate 7 Android tablet rocks Beats, $169 price tag; due out in April

And this one talks about HP's future plans:
HP building multiple tablets this year: 'we want to be the number one computer vendor'

The title pretty much says the whole store:
Firefox OS Hits The Ground Running With Phones From Telefonica, T-Mobile, Firefox Marketplace For Apps; 18 Carriers In All Signed Up For Mozilla’s Open Web Effort

I'm looking forward to more details about this one, sounds nice:
Samsung's HomeSync 1TB Android-based media server streams apps to your TV, keeps your data in sync

Will definitely take a look at this one when it ships (though I want a wifi-only one):
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is an Android tablet that's also a huge phone


Chips


Out of ARM's way, Brit chip juggernaut runs over analysts again

Tegra 4 benchmarked... wow!
