SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: February 21, 2012

Today was the day that many of us had to go back to work from a well-deserved holiday weekend, and we’re here to give you the rundown of everything that happened while you were busy catching up. For starters, we’ve got a preview of Huawei’s MediaPad 10, and also a look at Ubuntu’s debut on Android, making the Google OS a “full desktop experience.” Read on for even more big news of the day.

Featured: Our Chris Burns has been busy as always summarizing what the latest trends in tech mean for the average consumer, as he shows in his latest two columns – Android 5.0 Jelly Bean is Android@Home, and Barnet & Noble $199 tablet a godsend. The new $200 Nook Tablet isn’t the only new consumer electronics device hitting the market this week. We’ve also got PlayStation Vita, and in case you haven’t kept up to speed, here a look at the PS Vita release week rundown.

Mobile World Congress: So the Mobile World Congress is just about a week away, and we’re still getting in new tips every day – for example, these articles popped up earlier today: ViewSonic Viewpad G70 7-inch Android 4.0 tablet to debut at MWC 2012 and Nokia Pure View camera device tipped for MWC 2012. You know SlashGear will be at next week’s show to give you all the latest scoops. Until then, we’re signing off from today’s evening wrap-up. Be sure to come back tomorrow, same time, same place.
