Android Smartphone Developments At CES 2013

There weren't many smartphone announcements at CES 2013, but most of them were for Android phones and here they are, including one phablet. Pantech, Sony and Huawei all announced phones — some exclusively for the Chinese market — and Intel released a CPU and reference platform optimized for Android and also designed for low cost in emerging markets.

There hasn't been much action on the smartphone front at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Most of the Android devices have been in refrigerators, cars and other such devices, not phones and tablets. But there were a few Android phone announcements.

The highlights:

  • Pantech announced the Discover phone, which they market as a less-expensive alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S3
  • Huawei showed 2 Android phones, including the more interesting Ascend Mate, with a display large enough to qualify as a phablet.
  • Sony's Xperia Z has a slick design, including water-resistance.
  • Intel is getting into the mobile phone processor market with a chip and reference design targeting Android phones for emerging markets.

Next: Pantech Discover (AT&T)
