HTC Rezound features wireless charging, gets a hands-on


We know a lot about the HTC Rezound, previously named Vigor, but this feature is definitely the coolest. The Rezound may be your average superphone, utilizing a 1.5GHz dual core, 1GB of RAM and a 720p display, but it’s the first smartphone not running WebOS to use wireless charging, comparable to the workings of Touchstone. I guess the picture says enough.

On top of this, we’ve got an unboxing video and some additional information to show you.

Someone going by the name of Worldofjohnboy (but you may call him John) owns a pre-production sample of the HTC Rezound and he’s done an unboxing video. Before we treat you with some unboxing love, here’s the confirmed and final specs of this phone:

  • Android 2.3.4
  • HTC Sense 3.5
  • Software # 1.02.605.1
  • PRI Ver. 1.12_002, 1.83_002
  • PRL Ver. 52498
  • ERI Version 5
  • Hardware:
  • Version 002
  • Processor 1.5 GHz dualcore
  • Memory 1GB (16GB SD card pre-installed)
  • Display 4.3″ 720p Resolution
  • Main Camera 8MP w/dual LED flash
  • Front Camera 2MP
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 3.0

So, here’s the video:

So, what do you think? Will this be your next phone or would you rather have the Galaxy Nexus?

AT&T Scheduled to Get Xperia X10 Late July, Who Cares?

Engadget Mobile is reporting that AT&T is signed up to receive the Sony Ericsson X10 in week 30 of the fiscal year. This could mean that we could see the handset released in late July or early August. This would bring AT&T to the Android table in a significant way, with the last of the “big 4″ carriers supporting an Android flagship device. Their earlier Android handset entries being somewhat disappointing, the X10 could give the Android faithful on that carrier something to look forward to.
