We had already seen images and leaked specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S Pro. Well this device has now become official with the real name of Samsung Epic 4G. This device is remarkably similar to the Samsung Galaxy S, which has already launched in Europe, but offers a five row slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Of course, it also comes with 4G data connectivity which the Samsung Galaxy S does not have. Similar to the Galaxy S, this device will launch with Android 2.1, but is slated for upgrade in the near future by Samsung themselves to Android 2.2, aka Froyo. So…

Here’s the first part of my video review of Verizon’s Motorola DROID X Android smartphone.  I love the hardware design (no touch sensitive buttons, yay!) and like the look of the display, too.  But I really love the new Motorola developed widgets, which are obviously MOTOBLUR based.  Check them out, below.

So yeah, I should have posted this yesterday, but I was tied up all day while in New York and didn’t get home early enough to deal with this.  So here it is, a demo of the new Motorola DROID X for Verizon Wireless.  The DROID X features a 4.3-inch 854 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, an 8 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and the ever popular mobile hotspot feature. The phone itself is quite large, but it is mostly less than 10mm in thickness. My initial testing suggests that this thing runs very, very hot during use…

Blog website Android and Me have managed to score some time with the forthcoming Droid 2 device from Motorola. The most notable aspect of this new device is just how similar it is to the original Motorola Droid. In terms of size, build and finish, it is almost identical. Of course, it is now running a 1 GHz TI OMAP3630 processor to liven things up somewhat. Android and Me performed a bunch of bench marking tests which together reveal that the Motorola Droid 2 is much faster than the original (naturally). Again, the most interesting find here is that the…

Thanks to carrier KT, the Google Nexus One (N1) is headed to South Korea this month. Come June 21st there will be a conservative 4,000 units available initially. Roll on July and the device will be ‘widely available’. There are no real surprises with this device other than the fact the N1 with KT is set to come preinstalled with Android 2.2, aka, Froyo. This version of Android brings with it a boost in speed along with a line of wishful eyes. The device will be available contract-free for the grand sum of 699,600 won (or about $576). Of course,…

The Samsung Galaxy S is headed to AT&T under the branding Captivate, and a modified chassis. Over at the AT&T website, it has become clear that the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone is headed to the carrier as the Samsung Captivate 4” Super AMOLED touchscreen smartphone. This Android 2.1 device is identical in almost every way to the Samsung Galaxy S that is available in the UK already via Expansys and Vodafone in store (at least in their Oxford brand). Even the backing of the device on the Captivate reads Galaxy S. Seems quite odd if you ask me. The chassis…
