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 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

Motorola DROID for Verizon

OK, here is the video I promised. I’ll pop in some live photos once I get a bit more situated this morning. Since shooting this video,... I’ve had a bit of time to play with the phone. So far I like it, but don’t love it.

The display is brilliant, plain and simple.  The keyboard, not so much.  It is usable, but far l...

The Android Developers Blog has announced that the new version of the Android SDK now supports Android 2.0, the “Eclair” OS that is running on the much-hyped Motorola DROID that is set to... launch soon.

Among the changes is new and broader support for synchronizing an Android device with other services.  This will allow developers to build apps to easily sync with other services...

Dell Streak (next to the shoe)

From the same site that first brought us video of the HTC Tattoo (then known as the Click) comes the first video of a new 5-inch display... equipped Streak from Dell, which runs Android 2.0 (Eclair).

It is said to feature a wide-VGA (800  480 pixel) capacitive touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash, and 3G...

I noticed that Verizon is running a TV commercial that offers the same basic content as its promotion website for the Motorola DROID while watching Amazing Race this evening.  The only difference is... that instead of a countdown timer, the commercial says “coming in November.”

This could mean that we’ll see an unveiling on October 30 and actual device availability in Novembe...

Motorola DROID for Verizon

Not much detail yet, but the Boy Genius has posted a photo to his twitter feed that shows a picture of the Motorola DROID he has in his posession. ... Interestingly, the device appears to be running Android 2.0 – Eclair.  We haven’t seen this version of the OS on any other devices so far, and 1.6 just very recently started making it onto the ma...

Acer A1

Back in March we attended a UK Press Launch for Acer’s up-coming smartphone range. At the time it seemed to focus a lot on Windows Mobile, and this was justified... because Acer believed there to be a good level of synchronisation between Windows computer and Windows mobile devices. This is clearly a priority for them. However, during the event I asked some probing q...
