This might be a little to early, since CES isn’t even over yet. But the next big event in Android takes place at the end of February in Barcelona, Mobile World Congress 2012. Today Sony started sending out invites for the event, which is pictured above, and it looks like we are going to see more Xperia phones announced at MWC next month. Mobile World Congress is February 27th – March 1, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain, and as always we will bring you all the latest from that event.
In related news, a Tweet from Orange UK’s Conor Maples confirms that the network will carry Sony’s new flagship phone the Xperia S. Rival networks O2 and Three have already [...]
Great news for all of us looking for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. The ads that had the Sprint Galaxy Nexus shown with only 16GB of storage seem to have been wrong. I emailed Sprint yesterday asking them why they weren’t offering the 32GB version, and they got back to me today saying that they are offering the 32GB version of the Galaxy Nexus. So now all your Sprint customers thinking of switching to Verizon just for the 32GB Galaxy Nexus don’t need to.
So now the question is will Sprint charge the same $299 that Verizon is charging? Or will it keep to it’s $199 pricing structure that they said they would keep for their LTE devices? We’ll have to [...]
We had a chance to get up close and personal with Verizon and Motorola’s Droid Razr Maxx. I must say it’s even better then the Droid Razr, while the only main difference is the huge battery that’s in the Droid Razr Maxx, and it’s bump up to 32GB of memory, it’s worth checking out.
The Droid Razr Maxx is still just as thin as the original Droid Razr, but at CES it lost it’s title as the world’s thinnest smartphone. But we knew that was going to happen at CES didn’t we? We’ve got tons of pictures for you down below, to admire until it official launches on big red sometime later this year. It will launch at $299 on Verizon [...]
Just when we thought T-Mobile was going to be left in everyone’s dust, they go ahead and announce the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G – it’s interesting to me that it’s not the Galaxy S2 Blaze 4G? Anyways T-Mobile announced the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G — a HSPA+ 42mbps device from Samsung. The Blaze 4G features a dual-core Snapdragon S3 at 1.5GHz and a Super AMOLED screen, and offers a “variety of pre-loaded entertainment.” We’ll be sure to catch up with T-Mobile and get more information.
This is only T-Mobile’s second device that can reach up to 42mbps on their HSPA+ although the chances of you actually seeing that speed is [...]

Now it’s time to give Lenovo the spotlight. We were able to get some time with Lenovo as they showed off their S2 Smartphone and S2 Tablet yesterday, and we have plenty of pictures for you. Lenovo announced early Monday morning – for those of us on the east coast, their S2 Android lineup which at this point consists of a smartphone and a tablet. This is Lenovo’s first step into the Android system, at least that the public knows about.
So let’s get straight into it, before we get to the best part – the pictures of course – let’s give you a quick run down of the specs for Lenovo’s S2 Smartphone:1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 [...]

Motorola and Verizon finally announced the Droid 4 at CES this past monday, yesterday we were able to get some hands on time with the brand new device that will be launching soon on Verizon’s LTE network. It’s a pretty good looking device, looks a lot like the Droid Razr as far as design, but there are parts that make it like a Droid. Don’t forget about the awesome specs the Droid 4 has, for a reminder read below:1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor Full-edge Lit QWERTY Keyboard Running Android 2.3.5 – Will be upgraded to Android 4.0 soon 4-inch qHD display 8-megapixel Rear Camera that captures 1080p video, while the front captures 720p 16GB of internal [...]
Those of us who don’t own the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate – on AT&T – have probably forgotten that Samsung has not yet released an official update to Gingerbread, until today that is. Now I can finally pick up my Captivate off my desk and update it to Android 2.3 using Samsung Kies.

Over the last couple of days we have seen a ton of Press releases, but it looks like we missed something important. Sprint slipped in some information with their Press Release of the Galaxy Nexus, and the LG Viper.
Sprint says they have 15 LTE devices set to launch in 2012, on top of that it looks like they will be keeping unlimited data for their LTE network. Good news right? Now we did not hear anything about throttling, so they could be taking the T-Mobile route and giving you a cap, and once you hit that cap reducing your network speeds.
Lastly, it was also stated that the prices of their LTE devices would not be crazily high like with Verizon – come [...]
