BARCELONA -- Google (GOOG) and its Android operating system dominated Mobile World Congress being held this week in Barcelona as the search engine company's foray into the mobile world has quickly reached a crescendo. Google's fun green and white two story booth, complete with a smoothie juice bar and a circular slide where attendees could slide down in the middle of the booth and get their picture taken, represented a stark contrast to the more formal and stuffy business-like booths in this B2B-oriented, mobile industry show. The booth itself represented a departure from Google's normal trade show appearances, which have usually been much smaller and more utilitarian in design.

In June, Sprint launched the first 4G smartphone, the EVO 4G, onto the market with great anticipation and fanfare. So how does Sprint top the EVO 4G? With the new Epic 4G from Samsung, of course. The Epic 4G offers a great combination of features including the 4.0-inch AMOLED display, that is sure to wow with its super bright screen, vivid colors and high contrast ratio, and the full QWERTY keyboard. It also comes with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording plus a front facing VGA 640x480 camera for video chatting, and, of course, 4G WiMax connectivity, which is Sprint’s biggest advantage over its mobile competitors currently.

Sprint’s EVO 4G Android smartphone by HTC is the first Android smartphone from a major carrier to get the long awaited version 2.2 (Froyo) of the Android mobile OS from Google.

Adobe, having been shunned by Steve Jobs and Apple, has made a great effort to get cozy with Google and its Android OS using it as its launch platform for its Flash mobile initiatives.
