With Apple’s iPhone 5 unveiling finally behind us, it’s time to start focusing on some other (and hopefully more exciting) events set to take place in September. First up, we know Motorola and Intel will have something new to show us on the 18th in London, but, unlike Apple (yeah, I said it), they’ve managed to keep the secret rather well while also raising some hype.
Every major player seems to be struggling with sticking to deadlines and getting Jelly Bean out.

Earlier this month, Verizon Wireless and Motorola Mobility held an event in New York City to announce three new Android smartphones. The Motorola DROID RAZR HD, the Maxx variant of that device, and the DROID RAZR M. That last one, the M, is now available both on Verizon’s website and in their retail stores.
ZOMG! So like, has the iPhone 5 finally arrived!? Yawn. Forgive us for not sharing the seemingly blind enthusiasms that many are feeling, but it comes with the territory when you’ve been spoiled with such a diverse and impressive Android lineup this year. A 4-inch display? Welcome to 2010, Apple.

Up-and-coming prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless seems to really be on a roll. On top the launch of Cricket-powered RadioShack Wireless last week, Cricket has also launched its own version of the HTC One V, which has now become the most powerful Android smartphone in its portfolio. That doesn’t seem to be enough for Cricket though, and another enticing Android mid-ranger is heading to the nation’s eighth largest carrier. We first spotted the ZTE Nova 4.0 V8000 back in May at the CTIA, and, just as we suspected, this will be a Cricket exclusive phone.
There’s plenty of hoopla already surrounding the LG Optimus G, but the “beast” might have just become even more intriguing.
