Round up of the new Mobile World Congress phones, arriving on UK networks


One Mobile Ring attended Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, where new mobile phones were unveiled by Sony Ericsson, Samsung, LG, HTC, ZTE and Huawei. We covered the launch of these handsets, along with producing images and video. Unfortunately, we didn’t write about which mobile phone networks will be picking up these devices in the UK – until now.

The following is a simple roundup of what networks will be carrying which new mobile phones, in a guide that OMR will update as and when we discover more.

Vodafone will be exclusively carrying the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1-inch large screened, dual-core Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 tablet.

A range of Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 phones are also arriving with Vodafone, these are the latest HTC Desire S flagship mobile, the HTC ChaCha with its dedicated Facebook button along with the  HTC Wildfire S – the successor to the budget Android handset.

Vodafone is carrying the Sony Ericsson Xperia ‘PlayStation’ Play phone and the company’s Xperia Neo exclusively in the colour red. The network will also be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S II, which will sit alongside the LG Optimus 3D – the world’s first 3D smartphone.

T-Mobile has made public they have picked up the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Arc and Xperia Neo – with the Play arriving in April.

One part of Everything Everywhere has also unveiled it will be stocking the LG Optimus 3D, with its 4.3-inch widescreen stereoscopic 3D LCD display and the ability to display 3D content.

T-Mobile announced last week they will be carrying the new range of HTC mobile phones, in the ChaCha, Desire S and HTC Wildfire S.

The mobile phone network Three has announced they will carry HTC’s first tablet the Flyer, with its 7-inch 1024×600 capacitive touchscreen, along with the HTC ChaCha, Wildfire S and Desire S.

This is coupled with the LG Optimus 3D, Samsung Galaxy S II and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – making Three the most well stocked network of them all.
