Samsung DROID Prime — Verizon’s Reason for Snubbing Samsung Galaxy S II

by: Elmer MontejoAugust 30, 2011

Is the Motorola DROID Bionic Verizon’s real reason for passing up the Samsung Galaxy S II? We previously answered with a confident yes to that question–until new rumors started circulating about another potential big reason for Verizon to let the Samsung Galaxy S II arrive on U.S. shores without taking a bite of some of the Galaxy S II’s glory. There is another glorious phone coming up, one more sensational and more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy S II–the Samsung DROID Prime, which many purport to be the Nexus Prime rumored and speculated about earlier.

Sources “close” to tech blog Boy Genius Report (BGR) have whispered that [...]

Samsung Lawyer Confirms Nexus Prime Does Exist

by: Elmer MontejoAugust 26, 2011

Google’s reference phone for the upcoming Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich exists. It will be called Nexus Prime, not Nexus Plus or Nexus 3. Samsung is going to manufacture the Nexus Prime. Firmware for the Nexus Prime leaked out. Someone got hold of the firmware. Samsung doesn’t want him/her to release it or disclose it publicly without Samsung’s consent.

Samsung’s own legal department confirmed these juicy tidbits about the Nexus Prime–that is, if the cease and desist letter that Geek reported about earlier today is authentic.

A developer apparently got hold of leaked firmware purported to be that of the Nexus Prime. When Samsung [...]

Why Android Will Win: There’s a Big Market for Inexpensive Quality Tablets

by: LucianAugust 22, 2011

In case you haven’t noticed people have been going crazy these days over the $99 HP TouchPad. The only problem? They’ve sold out way too early, and a lot more people would want one. It seems that people don’t care that much about the availability of apps as long as it’s a tablet with a good browser and of course the core apps such as e-mail clients, music players, and so on.

HP TouchPad – The Best Android 4.0 Tablet?

The hardware for the TouchPad is very powerful. It’s a 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm processor, like the one found in HTC Sensation. So as soon as Google open sources Android 4.0 this fall, which will work for both phones and [...]

Why Android Needs a Powerful Theme Engine

by: LucianAugust 12, 2011

When Android launched in 2008, it didn’t have a very beautiful UI, and the engineers were probably more inclined to make it as functional as possible first. HTC saw this as an opportunity to improve Android’s UI, and to corner the market early on with their own unique looking phones. HTC’s Sense UI was a major improvement over how Android looked before, but unfortunately other manufacturers thought they should follow in HTC’s footsteps and make their own skins as well.

User Experience: Better or Worse?

Not only are most skins out there looking worse than Android stock UI, but they are also not properly optimized and slow down the phones, or [...]

Samsung Has a 720p Super AMOLED HD Plus 1.4Ghz Superphone in the Pipeline – the Nexus Prime Perhaps?

by: Darcy LaCouveeAugust 11, 2011

Despite all the recent buzz around the legal predicaments that Samsung is facing, with Apple having succeeded in having the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 blocked EU wide, it appears that they aren’t slowing down their pace of innovation. What’s more is that they don’t appear to be content sitting on sidelines, even with the success of the Galaxy S II having sold over 6 million phones in just a few short months.

Telefonino just broke the story that Samsung is currently working on producing a superphone with specs that look likely to blow any phone out of the water – including the iPhone 5. Dubbed the GT-I9220 (W43) for now, it will have Android 2.3.3 on [...]

ASUS Padfone Will Give You a Bite of Ice Cream Sandwich for Christmas

by: Elmer MontejoAugust 11, 2011

An Asustek official told media representatives yesterday that the upcoming ASUS Padfone will be powered by Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) when the device is released some time late this year.

Alex Sun, chief of Asustek’s personal mobile devices department, explained that ICS is the operating system of choice for the upcoming ASUS Padfone because the operating system promises better integration across different platforms.

ICS, said to be the unifying version of the Android operating system, is set for release in the fourth quarter and is hoped to patch the fragmentation caused by different releases of Android for smartphones and tablets. Recent [...]
