In a spate of small but perfectly formed Android news updates, we bring you word of a confirmed Android device from Acer in late 2009. The third largest PC manufacturer has been hinting at this possibility for some while now and even confirmed their intent. Now we finally have a time-frame to match, currently set for later this year. Obviously, other than a rough date, very little else has been said so far, but we’ll keep our ear to the ground and let you know when the updates roll in. It has now become apparent that Motorola may have more…

Our friends over at PhoneScoop.com have noted that the Samsung i7500, the company’s first Android smartphone, has passed through the FCC testing process.  This cements the fact that the device will work on T-Mobile USA’s 3G network, since the documents show that it was specifically tested on the AWS 3G band used by T-Mobile. There has been no announcement regarding the I7500 from T-Mobile yet, but O2 Germany has already said that it will be making the device available to its customers next month (June).  People are speculating that T-Mobile USA will be releasing the device under the name Houdini…

HTC adds Exchange support, camera enhancements and more to non-Google branded HTC Magic

We just got confirmation from HTC’s Eric Lin stating that the Microsoft Exchange support found in CNET Asia’s Singapore market HTC Magic is indeed meant to be standard on that version of the phone. According to Eric, the phones that lack the “with Google” branding are going to be offered with additional HTC developed functionality, such as the Exchange client seen by CNET Asia. To quote Eric Lin: The Vodafone version of Magic has “with Google” on the back, like the G1. This simple phrase indicates that the phone has a pure Google experience – no customizations have been made…

Android powered GeekPhone ONE planned for Q4 availability….if we’re lucky

We’ve just caught wind of a new Android based device originating out of Spain. The company supposedly building the phone, GeekPhone,  does not even have a working website yet, and instead relies upon a blog that has remarkably little information. Clearly, it is incredibly early days for the company as a whole, and we are skeptical as to whether this device is truly serious at the moment. Indeed, forecasting a launch for Q4 of this year may be somewhat optimistic. After all, unforeseen circumstances and problems arise. If things are true, the selling factor on the “ONE” from GeekPhone has…

Tech 65 has uploaded another video of the Samsung i7500.  For those of you unfamiliar with the i7500, it is very likely going to be the first Android smartphone from Samsung to hit the market.  It will show up in June on O2 in Europe, if the rumor mill is right. Video after the jump.

Not much information here, but the Boy Genius Report has what it claims to be a rendered image of the upcoming T-Mobile G1 v2 that we we first caught wind of earlier this week. Not much to talk about here, except that BGR is claiming that Walmart will sell the device in October for $148, which suggest a $149.99 price from T-Mobile direct – if it all turns out to be true.

CodeAndroid.org has received a few live photos of what appears to be the HTC Hero Android smartphone enjoying a night out on the town with some guys in sport coats.  We first caught wind of the Hero in the HTC roadmap that was leaked some time ago, though this time around there’s none of that awful pink color. Not much to be discerned from the photos except that there is no trackball (a shame) and there appears to be a 3.5mm headphone port – something we haven’t seen so far on an Android device.

Samsung “Houdini” coming to T-Mobile USA this Fall with G1 v2 “Bigfoot”?

The guys over at CellPhoneSignal.com and TmoToday.com have a marked up slide which they claim to be from T-Mobile’s 2009 roadmap for Android devices.  For starters, it shows that the G1 will get a price cut before being put out to pasture during the early Fall, only to be replaced by a very different looking T-Mobile G1 v2 device with a code name of “Bigfoot”. The slide would also have us believe that the HTC Magic/Sapphire/MyTouch 3G is coming this Summer. Also quite interesting is the device named the Samsung Houdini.  Based on the other names in this document, it…
