According to IDG News, HTC has announced that they have plans to release two new Android phones in China this year marketed under their Chinese subsidiary brand, Dopod.  They hope to be the first to release Android devices in China. The two devices to be released are named the Hero (at 5,600 Yuan or $820) and the Click (at 3,400 Yuan or $500).  The Dopod Hero is nearly identical to the HTC Hero released in the west, whereas the Click will be a low-end Android device with a removable front cover that has never been announced outside of China.

The guys over at PhoneArena have posted what appears to be the first live photo of the upcoming Motorola Sholes (or Shules) Android-powered smartphone for Verizon Wireless that we showed you last week.  The photo is blurry and all (looks like the photographer moved), but you can see a fair amount of detail on it in spite of that. Head on over to PhoneArena for the full sized photo.

Another nice piece of rumorific news today is that what a Russian website is calling the Motorola Sholes, a new high-end Android powered handset that appears to be headed for Verizon. According to the site, the Sholes features a large 3.7-inch touchscreen display with a whopping 480 x 854 pixel resolution.  They also claim it has a half-Gig of internal storage and supports 16GB microSD cards, comes with a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, and has a 3.5mm headphone port.  GPS and a decent 1400mAh battery are also on-board, according to the site. The claimed dimensions of 60mm x 115.8mm x…

We’ve heard rumblings of this for a long time, but this is the first time I’ve seen an actual piece of photographic proof, weak as it might be in these Photoshop days. This comes from an XDA-Developers forum member that has been making the same October 11 claim for Sprint and the Hero for some time. [via EngadgetMobile]

It appears that the rumored Motorola Morrison Android-powered smartphone for T-Mobile has finally passed through the FCC.  We’re pretty certain that this is the T-Mobile device since it supports T-Mobile’s 3G network, which runs on the AWS frequency band pair (1700MHz and 2100MHz). The guys at CellPhoneSignal have ripped through the FCC documents and pulled out the best parts, so rather than rehash that myself, I’ll just direct you there. The short of it, however, is that it supports tri-band HSPA 3G data and WiFi with stereo Bluetooth onboard as well.  No real confirmation of specs other than the obvious,…

HTC Hero / T-Mobile G2 Touch review posted

I posted the Russell’s full written HTC Hero review this morning on MobileBurn.com.  It’s about 3,000 words of Android goodness, and includes the 3 part video review and the unboxing video that he shot for us earlier. Here’s Russell’s conclusion from the review: The HTC Hero is a great handset that I thoroughly enjoyed using. Its older brother, the Magic, was great fun when I tested it a while back, but the Hero is better still and I’d happily use one as my everyday phone. It’s quite something for me to heartily recommend a touchscreen device, as (being a heavy…

The T-Mobile G2 Touch (aka the HTC Hero) is now available online to T-Mobile UK customers.  The price of the phone ranges from £195.73 on a £15/mo contract to free on a £30/mo contract. T-Mobile UK has said that the Android-powered smartphone will start appearing in retail stores over the course of the next couple of days. Update: Both plans require a £5/mo internet data plan, so that the real cost of the two contracts listed above is £20/mo and £35/mo.

As promised, here’s the 3 part HD video review of the HTC Hero / T-Mobile G2 Touch for Europe.  Russell might have gone a bit overboard here, giving us over 30 minutes of footage, but there was just so much HTC Sense goodness in the Hero that he just couldn’t help himself. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.  It’s not as good as using one yourself, but it’s damn close. Part 1 is directly below, and parts 2 and 3 are available after the jump.  The full text review that goes with the videos will be posted on MobileBurn.com in the…

Well, I’ve finished the T-Mobile myTouch 3G review on MobileBurn.com.  It’s a good solid device that could use a bit more battery and a nice camera, but is otherwise a standup piece of hardware. It’s kinda pretty, too… In any case, I’ve just finished editing and rendering the 3 massive videos for Russell’s HTC Hero review.  Those will probably be posted in the next 24 hours or so.  The review has also been written, and will likely go up on Monday. Stay tuned.
