Two new Android devices–a smartphone and a tablet–are arriving on Sprint this month. The first is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi, which will be available for purchase online on Sprint on June 24 (Friday) for US$500. The second is the HTC EVO 3D, which will be up for preorders right now, but exclusively for Sprint Premier customers for US$200.
You can also go buy the Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi right now at Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon, Micro Center, Tiger Direct, or Newegg. Customers who are wary of online purchases will have to wait one full month before they can get their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi from Sprint stores. The tablet will start reaching [...]
HTC’s AT&T version of its “Facebook phone,” the HTC ChaCha, has been spotted on a leaked photo showing a face slightly altered from the one that HTC unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February this year. Pocketnow was tipped with the leak photo and was quick to note that only very little cosmetic changes have been made.
The AT&T version of the HTC ChaCha looks very much similar to the global version, and presumably, will also have the same hardware. Folks are hoping that it will also have the faster 800-MHz processor that replaced the 600-MHz processor of the HTC ChaCha version already launched in the U.K. and elsewhere.
To date, most other phone manufacturers have either already launched their dual-core smartphones or have at least one in the works. Sony Ericsson is not going to be left behind–that is, if the leaked photos of the Sony Xperia duo are to be believed.
Late last week, phoneArena uncovered photos alleged to be those of the rumored Sony Ericsson Xperia duo. The “duo” in the name supposedly hints at the dual-core processor that the handset will be having. If true, the Sony Ericsson Xperia duo will be the first Sony Ericsson Android smartphone to bear a dual-core processor.
The first photo shows the front of the Sony Ericsson duo. The display is [...]
Picking Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy as exclusive retail partners, LG has announced that the LG Optimus 3D will start hitting retail stores in the U.K. on July 7. Preorders may be made starting today through Carphone Warehouse. You can get the smartphone for free with a 2-year locked-in contract with Vodafone with a monthly recurring fee of GBP35.00.
The LG Optimus 3D features a glasses-free 3D display (4.3 inches WVGA touchscreen), which means everything you view on the smartphone looks realistic and three-dimensional–and you don’t even have to wear special eyewear. You can also snap photos and record videos–in either 2D or 3D–using the [...]
The Acer Iconia Tab A100 has been elusive, at best, to many of those who were monitoring its whereabouts. It was spotted visiting the Federal Communications Commission early this month, and news began to spread of the Acer Iconia Tab A100’s imminent arrival. It’s now here. At Walmart. For US$349.
The folks at Engadget have been sent a photo of the Iconia Tab A100’s display tag, and the tag tells all that you will be getting for US$349:dual-core 1-GHz processor 7-inch screen (1024×600 resolution) Android 3.0 Honeycomb 2-megapixel front camera 5-megapixel back camera 8 gigabytes of internal storage Wi-Fi connectivity case, AC adapter, [...]
Canada is a premier destination of Android devices, with three smartphones heading to where the Red Maple Leaf is. The HTC Sensation 4G is set to be released on Bell in July, and the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy S Infuse 4G are also on their way to Canada.
Add Toshiba to the list. Canada will soon be seeing the Toshiba THRiVE, which will go by a simpler, more modest name once it reaches Canadian shores: the Toshiba Tablet. Other tech news sites say Toshiba will probably rebrand or rename the Canadian version of the THRiVE, although it is possible that “Toshiba Tablet” will remain its name within Canada.
Toshiba’s very first-ever [...]
Not too long ago, we held a QWERTY Superphone standoff – the Motorola Droid 3 vs the HTC Doubleshot aka myTouch 4G Slide. Well, we’ve got some more leaks coming your way, courtesy of TMo-news. Today, we present to you, our dear reader, with some excellent high-res captures of the yet unannounced, but soon to be realized, beautiful QWERTY Slider from HTC – the myTouch 4G Slide.
The front of the myTouch4G Slide is aesthetically, no different to the orignal myTouch 4G. The keyboard itself looks to be a joy to use. HTC, as the maker of this particular carrier branded device, has some serious experience in making great [...]
Canadian telecom company Bell confirmed late last week the arrival of the HTC Sensation 4G to the network “in the coming weeks.” A tip received by MobileSyrup, however, mentions that the HTC Sensation 4G will arrive on July 5.
This means that Canadians have roughly two weeks to make up their minds over which superphone to get: the HTC Sensation, or the Samsung Galaxy S II, or the Samsung Galaxy S Infuse 4G. The latter two are also heading for Canada in July.
The HTC Sensation 4G is expected to cost CA$550.00 for a no-contract handset. No info has been leaked regarding Bell’s price plans for the Sensation 4G.
Bell is also giving away 10 [...]
The whole world is expecting Android-loving Canadians in their homeland to sing “O Android” as fervently as they sing “O Canada”–figuratively speaking, of course–once the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy S Infuse 4G finally arrives in Canada in July.
SaskTel, a Saskatchewan-based telecommunications provider, confirmed on Twitter last Friday that the carrier will be launching the dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II next month. Other Canadian mobile carriers such as Rogers, TELUS, and Bell may also be launching the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Samsung Galaxy S II will have Android 2.3 [...]
Looks like the big G is throwing it’s wallet around, and on a Father’s Day at that! Sage TV announced via a small note on their homepage, and through a quick tweet, that they have been acquired by Google. Why is this at all significant, and why should you care? SageTV is a software company that has immense experience in the “Smart TV” space, and has significant amounts of their technology based in Java. While at this point we can’t be entirely sure what Google intends to do with SageTV, we do know that this acquisition underscores Google’s commitment to making media in and around the living room a big deal.
We already saw Google make [...]
