You can’t be a famous rapper without showing off your “bling”, “swag”, “pimp mobiles”, or “bread” in public anytime you get the chance, can you? But when jewelry, clothes, cars and money are not enough to illustrate exactly what kind of rich and successful son of a… gun are you, what’s there left to do? If we are to take Soulja Boy’s example, when cars and jewelry ain’t enough, Android is the way to go. More exactly, you get an obscure tablet manufacturer to accept a “partnership” and launch two new products with your name and face slapped on their…

Samsung and HTC don’t have much competition in the high-end smartphone market niche these days, but we knew for a while that Sony is preparing a charge against the S3 and the One X. But, while Sony’s future flagships look really special in theory, the release delays might seriously affect their practical chances of making a difference. According to official information on NTT DoCoMo’s webpage, the Japanese carrier will start taking pre-orders for the Xperia GX on August 2, and ship the phone a full week later, on the 9th. That means that, for some reason, the initial plans –…

It’s only been a few weeks since Motorola officially took the wraps off the new Atrix HD LTE, but it seems that Google’s subsidiary has some big plans with the super-phone. In US, AT&T has for now been granted the “honor” to be the only supplier of the 4.5-incher, while in Canada the Atrix could come to two carriers. We reported on the rumors that Bell could be the first carrier up north to get the phone just over a week ago, and now it seems that Virgin Mobile is ready to follow suite. The new rumor comes from the…

MetroPCS-bound Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G leaks, to be released in August

Dominating the high-end part of the smartphone world doesn’t seem to be enough for Samsung, which is constantly looking to strengthen its presence in the low-end and mid-range niches as well. One phone that could place itself right between these sectors is the Galaxy S Lightray 4G, supposedly headed to MetroPCS in August. The information comes via a Howard Forums leak and is not yet confirmed, but the fistful of high-quality “spilled” photos and the almost complete spec sheet guarantee that we’re not dealing with a bogus rumor. That said, the Galaxy S Lightray 4G seems like a pretty bizarre device,…

Right as we fervently waited for the official kick off of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, Samsung made our day even brighter by unveiling two special edition Galaxy S3 phones. These will be available for sale in the UK soon and target British tech users who want to show their support for their Olympian heroes. The Games’ grand opening ceremony might start in just a few hours, but the Olympic fever won’t be easily quenchable across England for the next 17 days. That’s why, even if the two limited edition Galaxy S3 models won’t actually start selling until August 1,…

Rumors: AT&T to cut HTC One X price by half, red Galaxy S3 to start selling

Although it was hailed as HTC’s comeback and it supposedly started off more than decently, the One X couldn’t stand the Galaxy S3 charge and saw its sales rapidly drop. No, that’s not an official story, but earlier rumors, combined with a new one, certainly make the scenario trustworthy. The new rumor comes from an XDA-Developers forum user, who supposedly got his hands on an AT&T e-mail announcing the upcoming price slashing of the One X. “Surflamj”, a junior member of the forum, has stated that he works “for AT&T as a sales rep”, and says that the One X’s discount…

With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out for a while now, it’s only natural to expect the market’s major players to announce their upgrading plans. And while the first such signals have been quite shy, with only HTC and Asus making their voices heard, the past week or so has been much more spirited. Sony let us down by announcing that 2011 Xperia phones won’t be getting JB, while Toshiba and surprisingly Intel raised our spirits by making opposite announcements. Samsung is yet to unveil its Android 4.1 plans, but rumors state that their JB upgrades for the Galaxy S3 and…

It is no longer a secret that Samsung is the rising star of the Android Galaxy (see what I did there?), but the pace at which the Korean company keeps breaking financial and sales records is breathtaking. Even with those much debated US demand and supply issues with the company’s new flagship phone, the Galaxy S3, Samsung has managed to pull an unbelievably successful second financial quarter, reinforcing its leadership position in the global mobile market. According to official numbers, Samsung’s quarterly profits have reached an all-time high of $5.9 billion (6.72 trillion Korean won), which represents a 79% (!) increase…

Apple might have been in the spotlight with its ongoing legal fights against Android, especially now that it has actually started winning, but Microsoft is clearly the most effective patent “fighter”. The Windows creators scored what looked like an unimportant US win against Motorola a few weeks back, and now added a much more significant victory in a German court. The Mannheim Regional Court ruled in favor of Microsoft in a longstanding, but not very publicly visible trial, and granted a ban on a bunch of Motorola devices. In fact, Moto won’t be able to sell any of its Android-based…

Diversity is the hallmark of the Android ecosystem, but there is still one equation that no manufacturer has tried to solve just yet. What do you get when you combine the latest version of Android, snappy hardware, LTE speeds, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard? We’d say you have a good chance to create a winning gadget, which is why the increasing hype surrounding the upcoming Motorola Photon Q LTE makes us very happy. The first rumors about the Sprint-bound phone popped up on the web several months ago, and now finally we have been given confirmation that the handset is real…
