It’s been a long road for the Bionic, from its announcement back at CES to Motorola’s delay, aimed at bringing an “improved form factor,” and most recently, a rumored August 4th
I have to admit, Verizon’s LTE coverage has been growing a lot lately, and it doesn’t look like they’re stopping anytime soon. After launching 28 new markets last week, Big Red
You know that saying, “Patience is a virtue?” Well, it would seem that it’s not Vodafone’s strongest, as they’ve pulled the HTC Evo 3D from their “Coming Soon” page. HTC
Back at CES, we got a sneak peek at Samsung’s flexible AMOLED screens. Well, we’re finally seeing them take shape (see what I did there?) with the “Samsung Galaxy Skin”,
If you’re not familiar with Olivetti, they’re an Italian electronics company that doesn’t play around, and that shows in their two new Android tablets. They’re both going under the name “Olipad”,
Netflix has been both a blessing and a curse since the release of the Android app. It originally only worked on a handful of devices, until someone discovered that by
Eventually, the guys over at Samsung are going to run out of letters to put at the end of “Galaxy” in order to name their devices. First it was the
We’ve been waiting on this for quite some time now, but it looks like HTC and T-Mobile finally have that Gingerbread update ready for the G2. Of course, it’s about
Lenovo’s been in the groove lately with Android devices, haven’t they? First we got a look at the Honeycomb-equipped ThinkPad, and now this. The guys over at Engadget have gotten their hands
Well, the development team behind Dolphin Browser HD has just released an update, and it brings an awesome new feature to the table. They’re calling it Webzine, and it’s actually pretty nice-looking. It’s essentially a thumbnail view of web pages and bookmarks, and users can scroll through the thumbnail as if it was the actual page. And if they want to go to the desired page, a simple tap of the thumbnail is all that’s necessary. Webzine looks to take bookmarks to the next level, and I’m duly impressed.
It’s that time of the week again, as the rumor mill is in full swing, this time with a new tablet from Motorola that’s sure to turn some heads (if it even exists). A rumor has reached the guys over at SlashGear, and it’s proposing that Moto is working on a new Android tablet, one to truly rival the iPad 2. This device is said to sport a 10-inch HD display, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and the speculation doesn’t end there. The rumored tablet will be running Ice Cream Sandwich, something we haven’t heard much about since Eric Schmidt gave us some details on it.
Remember the Huawei Ascend? It launched on Cricket Wireless in October of last year, along with a few other regional carriers. Well, it looks like Huawei has put the finishing touches on the successor to the Ascend, which they’re calling, creatively enough, the Ascend II. It’s packing a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a measly 600MHz processor, Gingerbread (Android 2.3), 5MP camera, and the usual WiFi, 3G connectivity, and a micro SD card slot.
We first heard about Android 3.2 when Huawei announced their 7-inch MediaPad last month, and we learned that it is essentially a version of Honeycomb that was built with more processors and smaller displays in mind. It would appear that the guys over at DroidLife have gotten their hands on some information, and they’re claiming that the Moto Xoom is getting a 3.2 update that’s already begun to roll out in small batches.
Well, we knew this day was coming sooner or later. Verizon has confirmed the date for what many people feared: their switch from unlimited data plans to tiered data plans. Starting on July 7th (that’s this Thursday, folks), Verizon will offer three options for smartphone users.
