Rumored to be announced at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain, the phone to the right is going by the codename of “Zeppelin”.  This makes little sense as this phone... has also been going by that name and has been made very official as of late (although since ditching the Zeppelin title).  For now, we will call it the Motorola mystery until it’s formal announceme...

Acer A1 Liquid

According to French blog, Mobinaute, Acer France unofficially confirmed that the Acer Liquid A1 will be updated to Android 2.0 in March 2010. The blog also... hints that the upgrade may activate multi-touch, a feature typically seen on European Android phones and not their American counterparts. No word on whether the currently underclocked processor on the Li...

Remember that ultra sleek gallery app you’ve seen in the many Nexus One videos that have been posted in the last 2 weeks?  Well, now you can have that app on your Android 2.0 or... 2.0.1 device, but mainly the Motorola Droid.  The team over at Droidmuff.in have discovered that it has been ported and is rather easy to install.  There is no rooting necessary but I should note tha...

General Mobile COSMOS

I just received a bit of New Year’s Eve cheer from my friends at General Mobile.  I now have some decent specs and photos for GM’s second... Android powered smartphone, the General Mobile COSMOS.

The specs for the COSMOS, below, are much better than those of the DSTL1 that General Mobile released earlier this year.

Android 2.0 (Ecla...

This one is coming out of left field so read it with a healthy dose of skepticism, but a rumor fresh out AndroidSPIN claims that the T-Mobile G1 will be upgraded to Android 2.0, possibly even Android... 2.0.1. Supposedly, OTA updates for both Android versions have been prepared and both updates are already in the hands of a few choice people. The rumor does not specify which update will be rolled out...

Motorola Zeppelin

The Motorola Zeppelin has resurfaced with a couple of nice shots and an unconfirmed release date of, you guessed it, December 25th (China only).  Translated... specs include an ARM Cortex A8 processor, a  3.7-inch multitouch screen capable of 720p HD support, HDMI output, Android 2.0, a 5-Megapixel camera with LED flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, GPS, and Bluetooth 2...

In an informal and non-committal manner, Sprint announced today via Twitter that the HTC Hero and the Samsung Moment will be updated to Android 2.0 in the first half of 2010. Both handsets are still... running stock Android 1.5 and are lagging a bit behind the current crop of handsets which are rocking Android 2.0. Let’s hope all parties involved stay on top of things and get these updates int...

HTC DROID Eris

If you are heading out to get your free DROID Eris this weekend, you can make your purchase with confidence. A circulating rumor suggests that the Eris... will be updated to the latest version of Android, complete with Sense UI and Google Maps with Navigation. The update will roll out in early 2010 and, depending on the timing, may bring the Eris from...

Motorola DROID for Verizon

It’s been a busy morning, indeed.  Amid all of this Motorola MILESTONE news, I managed to get the full review of the Motorola DROID for... Verizon posted on MobileBurn.com.

I came away being much more impressed with it than my initial impressions might have suggested.  Sure, there are some ergonomic issues that bug me, and I stumbl...

On its Twitter account, HTC yesterday said that an Android 2.0 update was forthcoming for the HTC Hero. The tweet in question didn’t specify if the update would be available for both the EU version... and the Sprint CDMA version, though.

The rumors are true! Hero will be getting an Eclair update. We ask for your patience as we update Sense for the fancy new Android OS
