Dell’s 7-inch Android tablet, the Streak 7, appears to be headed to T-Mobile once it’s finally unveiled. A recent FCC filing shows the device listed with a M02M model number with support for a 3G modem that works for both AT&T and T-Mobile bands.

I am not sure what to make of the following items. Last week, I received a package on Wednesday that looked and felt an awful lot like it would contain a review unit cell phone. The name on the box indicated it was from HTC’s PR firm, Waggener Edstrom. Excited that it might be a new HTC phone (EVO Shift 4G, Thunderbolt), I tore into the box.

According to LG’s official forum, Verizon’s LG Ally handsets will see Android 2.2 in February 2011. After making its debut with Android 2.1 all the way back in May 2010, the handset maker later promised Android 2.2 would eventually come.

Attention gamers! EA Mobile has dropped the price of their Android games down to the very attractive price of 99¢ each! This means that for a limited time, users can download and install Tetris, The Sims 3, Need for Speed: Shift, and FIFA 10 for less than a Venti White Chocolate Mocha.
What started out a custom skin for Android phones back in 2009 has evolved into a user experience that, ultimately, will not be confined to handsets. HTC’s Head of User Experience, Drew Bamford, was recently interviewed by Forbes where he outlined the future of Sense as a platform.
After delivering the first 4G phone ever, the Sprint EVO 4G, HTC went on to provide T-Mobile’s first 4G device, the G2. What’s next for the handset maker? Well, why not drop the first Verizon 4G handset, too? Such is the case, or at least that’s what it appears to be.
