A few days ago we told you that Samsung may just launch a new Nexus device in the near future, its third handset reportedly conceived with Google in as many years, the Galaxy Nexus 2, aka the GT-I9260. That model number is awfully close to the Galaxy Nexus’s GT-I9250 number, which is why almost everyone in the tech news-reporting business is speculating that we’re looking at the second-generation Galaxy Nexus device.
If you’re smitten by the Xperia T – perhaps after seeing that unboxing video that we just posted – and can’t wait to buy it, it looks like several stores are selling Sony’s latest flagship model early. Those in the UK, France, and Germany can get their wallet out now.
In an age and era when five million people rush out to buy a very pricey iPhone 5 in the phone’s opening weekend, you might start to think that there’s no more place for lower end, but affordable mobile devices.
Following the launch of Google’s Nexus 7, the rumor mill almost immediately began spilling reports about a bigger version of the Jelly Bean tablet, specifically a 10-inch model that’d be known as the Nexus 10. Although that rumor is yet to be substantiated, we’re now hearing reports of an upcoming Nexus 5 device.
Despite getting to as slow of a start as pretty much anyone else, Samsung seems to at least want to speed up the Jelly Bean updating process. The latest and greatest Android version is being rolled out to the international Galaxy S3 as we speak, but an additional 15 Sammy phones and tablets will be getting the same update at some point.
Every time a new version of the iPhone hits the market we get a slew of articles from tech writers explaining why they are switching to Apple’s latest wonderphone and leaving the fractured hell that is Android behind. Obviously this kind of article is classic clickbait and fair enough, writers want people to read their articles and it’s their job to deliver eyeballs. The fact that most of them are full of fatuous reasoning and lack any real substance is what tends to aggravate the reading public.
The Optimus Vu 2 was first mentioned in August, but at the time LG was completely mum on the second gen phablet’s spec sheet and availability details. However, someone seems to have spilled the beans big-time, because Android Greed has a trio of very legit-looking images showing off the Optimus Vu 2’s new design and listing most of its features.
The Sony Xperia T is expected to land in stores in select European markets in the coming days. So it’s really about time that we finally see the unboxing video of the 007 phone. Also, special James Bond wallpapers and ringtones can now be downloaded.
Being a simple competitor seems to not be enough for Pantech anymore, who is looking to push for the leadership position in the Korean smartphone market with a new quad-core beast. The Vega R3 is the name of this new “monster”, one who has already been proclaimed as the “best existing quad-core smartphone” by its makers.
It’s not that often you come across a dual-SIM Android phone in the U.S. that has spacious display and good specs. The special edition Galaxy Note 2, which comes with dual-SIM support, is a great if somewhat expensive option, but its global release hasn’t been confirmed yet. For something less extravagant that doesn’t necessarily scream budget, there’s always the BLU Vivo 4.3.
