After the lackluster performance of the original Galaxy Gear, Samsung has to be thrilled with the response that their Tizen-powered wearables are getting. Most of the praise, however, is lavished on the Gear Fit rather than the more traditional looking smartwatches in their lineup. The GSMA (the organization responsible for Mobile World Congress) came away so impressed that they named the Gear Fit the “Best Mobile Device” of MWC this year.

It has been almost a year since LG set foot on stage at MWC, announcing the LG Optimus 3D (known as LG Thrill 4G in the US). This device was pretty exciting and revolutionary. Very few manufacturers have a glasses-free 3D option for their customers. Though an impressive device, most users expected more from the Optimus 3D.

Huawei has yet to make a real impact on the American market with the handsets they’ve released so far, but CES 2012 left us yearning for more.
