Some of you will already be aware of Creative’s first touchscreen player called the Zii Egg. On paper, this is one of the most exciting Android devices proposed at the moment not least because of the rumored price tag of only $199. Among many things, the Zii EGG is able to output 1080p HDMI, offers X-Fi audio processing and supports OpenGL ES 3D graphics. This is all because of the ZMS-05 Media Processor that is available through this Zii EGG development edition Plaszma platform. According to Creative themselves, “Plaszma is an open standard development platform designed to let you create…

French language website frandroid is reporting that Archos have confirmed the event that we mentioned a while back is on for September 15th. There is still the speculation that this IMT device probably does not have phone functionality, but we will have to wait till September 15th to be sure of what it does and does not have. What we have heard so far on the rumour mill is that the device will offer a 5-inch WVGA display and 500GB of storage in a 1cm thick body. Other specifications may include: 2Mb/s HSUPA 7.2Mb/s HSDPA Ability to play HD movies…

As part of its previously announced deal with T-Mobile, RadioShack today announced that the T-Mobile myTouch 3G is available at over 4,000 of its stores, located across the USA.  A selection of other T-Mobile devices are also available, though the press release makes no mention of the G1. Since the release doesn’t bring up pricing, I’d probably have to assume that pricing for the handsets will be in step with T-Mobile USA’s own retail locations.

Not so long ago we brought you the news that HTC expect to release the ‘Click’ to China late on this year. What we didn’t tell you is that this is allegedly going to grow the company’s revenue stream by up to 11%, and increase overall shipments a whopping 19%. This is some massive growth for HTC in a period of time where the economy may be stabilising, but where it is certainly not buoyant. According to digitimes, their favourite source and Chinese-language website, Economic Daily News (EDN), reports this data from Merrill Lynch analysts. Apparently, the Click will go…

HTC has issued a press release (in Chinese) stating that, among other things, it will offer a free upgrade to HTC Magic users of Chunghwa Telecom that will give Magic the same user interface as found on the HTC Hero. The Hero’s Sense-based UI is one of the few things the Hero offers that the Magic lacks, apart from the Hero’s 5 megapixel camera. There is no word yet as to when, or if, other carriers will also be able to offer the upgrade, but Chunghwa Telecom users can expect to gain access to it on early October.  We have…

This is all a tad (and when I say tad, I mean really) silly.  In anticipation of future Motorola Android devices, a Motorola admin has challenged folks to create creative images using the Android character, and upload them onto the Motorola Facebook page. Feel free to send in your submissions here.

Cnet is reporting that it believes that multi-touch support will come with the Eclair (2.0) update for Android, and not in Donut (1/6).  As for devices, Cnet also mentions that they believe the upcoming Motorola Sholes for Verizon will be the first phone to come with the Eclair update, and that it will make its debut on October 6 at the MotoDev event in San Diego. For those of you who have hacked multi-touch support onto your G1′s, how significant would this inclusion be?  Is multi-touch as essential as it’s been made out to be?  It is already available in…

Despite Google’s recent announcement of its Chrome OS, MID manufactures seem to be unfazed, as they continue to develop MIDs running the Android OS. The Eston MID-02 slider will have a 4.3 inch resistive touchscreen with the ability to boot into both Windows CE 6.0 and Android. The M! PC Pocket device will run Android and will be offered on  the French carrier SFR. It will be a rebadged version of the Compal P8860. It will feature a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, an Intel Atom Z500 processor at 800MHz, 512MB of RAM, and it will have a 4GB solid state drive…

Not too long ago we brought you the news of the Motorola Morrison, and how it passed FCC and looks to be heading to T-Mobile USA. Well, according to unwired news, the technical specifications have landed. The highlights for me are the 32GB microSDHC support, 3.5mm headphone port, a 5MP camera, and all the location based services that will come with the aGPS. Aside from the specifications, which we will list after the jump, there seems to be a few ‘sketches’ of the Motorola Morrison knocking around too. These are really no more useful or reliable than a diamond in…

The Lenovo OPhone has been announced to be released sometime next month through China Mobile.  The device runs a customized skin over top of Android that appears to take some of its look and feel from the iPhone. The device will sport the Chinese TD-SCDMA 3G standard that has grown slowly as a result of slow adoption. [via PCWorld]
