You could be forgiven for thinking that Samsung’s mobile strategy is 100 per cent Android, what will all of its MWC releases in the mix of new products this week. Not so, however; the company is still going to “significantly” increase investment in Bada – the same OS it’s merging with Intel’s Tizen — as well as continuing development on Windows Phone 7.

Worried that you’ve missed the best announcements from MWC 2012? Worry no more, because here is a roundup of the phone and tablet news from this week, including local coverage, that you should know about immediately. Chop chop.
