The Mobile World Congress is taking place next month in Barcelona, Spain. A lot of companies use this as a time to showcase their next wave of devices to come out in the following year, much like CES (except it’s global). Sony’s mobile department, Sony Ericsson, will be making an appearance and as the invite above states, showing you “the new members of the Xperia family.” The Xperia family already includes the Xperia X10, X10 Mini, Mini Pro X10 and the X8. It is predicted that the new children will include the famously mysterious Xperia Play/Zeus Z1/Playstation Phone as well as a slew of probable WP7 handhelds.

For more on the Xperia Play, take a peak at the following articles:

Frozen treats anyone?

Android Ice Cream – I kid you not. The next installment to Google’s Android OS (possibly 2.4?) is dubbed Ice Cream, and ironically it has a summer target release date. Last week Google officially released Android 3.0 Honeycomb (a tablet exclusive operating system) amongst the CES craziness (although it wasn’t like no one knew). Honeycomb will grace us with its presence on Motorola’s Xoom tablet when it is shipped this Spring… but Google tried to pull a fast one on us.

A Sony Ericsson Xperia device was seen running Android 2.4 on the showroom floor which got the rumor mill churning. Rikard Skogberg wrote in the SE blog that the number was an error and a misconfiguration and it was nothing to get excited about… yet that doesn’t stop us. Pocket-Lint (an odd name) cites multiple sources “familiar with the matter” that Google has Ice Cream down for a June/July release and will announce it at its I/O conference in May. Google has said in the past that it focuses on two major releases per year and Ice Cream paired with Honeycomb in January would comply with this agenda.

Fun fact of the day? All of Android’s OS updates have been in alphabetical order and names after desserts. Check out the table above for more information on each individual update since Android’s birth in early 2009.

The latest news came from TechCrunch, Jason Kincaid (writer for TechCrunch) heard firsthand from Andy Rubin (Android chief) that the next Android OS update will be called Ice Cream Sandwich. Why is that? Google creates a sculpture of the latest Android-flavored dessert to place out front of their HQ, and it would be too hard to differentiate between Froyo (frozen yogurt) and Ice Cream. Ha! Once again, I kid you not.
