Best smartphone of Mobile World Congress 2011

Which is the best smartphone announced at Mobile World Congress 2011?

Despite the Nokia and Microsoft headlines at the start of the show, this year's Mobile World Congress was definitely dominated by Android. Most of the 15 or so smartphones that were announced in Barcelona, Spain, sported either 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread, which is music to our ears. Here's a list of all of the smartphones that were announced at Mobile World Congress 2011.

LG Optimus 3D : Yes, it's 3D on a phone! Though we're not sure if it's for everyone, it's certainly an impressive leap in the mobile space.

Samsung Galaxy S II : Samsung continues its Galaxy S series with the superfast and shiny Samsung Galaxy S II.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play : Sure we had our misgivings about its Super Bowl ad , but the Xperia Play does look like a decent phone. But will it be the true "PlayStation Phone" that people might be expecting? We'll see.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo : Sony Ericsson released other smartphones too, like the Neo with the 3.7-inch touch screen.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro : This is the Neo with a slide-out keyboard.
