Love the Samsung Omnia, but hate Windows Mobile?¬† My friend, we’ve got just the thing for you, thanks to some hard working lads over at the Modaco forums.¬† It’s called Andromnia, and Android port for the Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia. While these guys have Android starting up properly on the Omnia, there are still a large number of problems.¬† Some of them are pretty big (no phone calls, for example).¬† But with that said, It’s crazy that they got this project off the ground at all. Kudos to you guys! We can hope that once the port-job for the i900 Omnia…

Not so long ago we bought you the news of the Geeks’Phone ‚ÄúONE‚ÄĚ, an Android product from a new start up in Spain. When we first saw this device, we had little information about the company and even less about the product itself. At first, we will admit that we were sceptical, but having caught up with the company and had a good line of communication, we now feel that we are in a better position to comment. On June 27th at 1pm Spanish time, Geeks’Phone keynote kicks off and their website offers live streaming (although the event is held…

File this one squarely under rumors, for now, but PhoneNews.com is reporting that a Sprint source has told it that Sprint is currently testing a CDMA version of the HTC Hero that was just announced on Wednesday.¬† The site also reports that Sprint is testing a dual-mode CDMA/WiMAX Android handset from Samsung. The site is reporting that the Hero for Sprint is scheduled for a December, 2009 launch, which would fit in with the “in 2009″ remark from HTC about U.S. availability of the device. The mysterious Samsung handset, on the other hand, is less clear.¬† The story suggests that…

This text is taken from my piece on the MobileBurn.com website.¬† A full photo gallery that includes¬†4 live photos from MobileBurn’s Russ Jefferies¬†is available at the end of the post. Today HTC launched its third Android powered smartphone, the HTC Hero. The HTC Hero makes use of the new HTC Sense user interface, which makes the Hero the first Android device on the market to sport a custom user interface. For those that follow Android more closely, HTC Sense will be recognized as the “Rosie” user interface that was leaked through some Hero ROMs a few weeks back. I had…

A blog named Mini Suit has posted what it claims to be a live photo of the Motorola Morrison, a QWERTY keyboard slider phone that is supposedly running the Android OS. The post says very little of the device in the photo, and the author doesn’t seem to be that sure of himself, either. In any case, we can see what appears to be a trackball controller and a separate d-pad by the keyboard.¬† We do not see, however, any home, menu, or back keys – though it¬†is possible there are touch sensitive keys on the white face of the…
