MWC 2010: Gadget Watch Slideshow

BARCELONA -- Mobile World Congress -- Will 2010 be the year of the Android operating system? Or can Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) strike back with fresh devices and its new Series 7 phone operating system?

The Redmond, Wash., software giant may have its work cut out for it, as our Gadget Watch slideshow from Mobile World Congress shows. Vendors like Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) and High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC) (Taiwan: 2498) were eager to show off many new Android devices.

One ray of hope for Microsoft: HTC is playing both sides of the fence with new Microsoft-based smartphones -- like the HD2 -- also gaining acclaim here in Spain.
