This Dell ‘roadmap’ reveals forthcoming Android based devices from computer manufacturer Dell, including a rough timeline on when we can expect to see them materialise.
This particular visualisation of Dell’s timeline comes via AndroidCentral, and reveals two new tablet/netbook class devices called “Sparta” and “Athens”. Both devices are alleged to be around the 11” mark, but the Sparta is a tablet while the Athens is considered a 0.9-kilogram “True notebook”. Both devices come with optional 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth, powered by an an ARM based [...]
We have already spent some hands-on time with the Garmin-ASUS nuvifone A50. Well this thing just got official, and in the process found itself a new name, ‘Garminfone’.
We’ve pretty much covered all the relevant specifications before, but for a quick recap, the ‘Garminfone’ will provide you with a custom build of Android running on 1.6 (upgradable in the future), WiFi, HSPA, microSD (up to 32GB) and a 3.5-inch HVGA display.
This phone is clearly oriented towards the navigation conscious, and as such it comes with a wind-shield mount, doubling up as a charging dock too. The full press release is [...]
After our recent update that the Samsung Galaxy S appears to be landing with T-Mobile, Forbes is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S will actually end up on all four major US carrier this year. These include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. Mark McKechnie, an analyst from Broadpoint.AmTech, believes that the Samsung Galaxy S will hit Verizon “sometime later in the year.”
McKechnie speculates that it will land with the other three major US carriers by July. If you take a look at our most recent post on this topic, you can see that we already thought the device was landing with T-Mobile and AT&T. However, [...]

If you use a Nexus ONE with T-Mobile, we have some good news for you. Phandroid reports that Google are cutting the Early Termination Fee (ETF) cost from $350 to $150. So what does this mean? If you cancel a contract with T-Mobile when you signed up with the Nexus One, you are contractually obliged to pay the difference between the unsubsidized phone and the discounted one. Until now this was alleged to equate to $350. Quite a price to pay, especially if you don’t care about the phone and would happily give it up.
Google are now offering a couple of things to sweeten the deal. First, if you cancel your T-Mobile contract and also return your phone to Google, then Google [...]
Earlier reports of the Motorola Zeppelin surfacing are starting to look more and more confirmed as an internal PowerPoint slide by T-Mobile has been leaked that may justify a few of the details we have already touched on. The slide was leaked on a PPCGeeks forum via MobileTechWorld and specifies a March 10 release date on T-Mobile and possibly an official name of CLIQ XT. If you read our previous coverage of the device you will remember that March 10 lines up perfectly as does the Cliq-esque nature of the phone with the exception of a physical keyboard. Lower end devices with sexy looks like this are just what Google needs to expand the Android army at the [...]
A report from analytics group Flurry Inc. predicts that Google sold roughly 80,000 units of its Nexus One smartphone in the phone’s first month. That doesn’t compare all that well with the DROID’s roughly 525,000 units in its first month, or the original Apple iPhone’s estimated 600,000 back in 2007.
Of course there are a lot of factors involved in these relatively low numbers. For starters, you can’t buy a Nexus One in a T-Mobile store. If you’re not sure if it will suit you, you’ll just have to pull the trigger and order it online, hoping that you’ll like it when it arrives (or [...]
The Unwired have received a press report from T-Mobile stating that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will be available from April in Germany. This is the start of the X10 roll out, which was originally due for release in February.
This Xperia device runs Android 1.6 (aka Donut), but also has a customised user interface on-top similar to what HTC have achieved with their ‘Sense UI’. Unlike any HTC Android device, however, the X10 offers a whopping 4.0″ WVGA (480×854) scratch-resistant capacitive screen. Throw in a 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and a 8.1 megapixel camera and you can begin to remember what all the fuss was about.
The version of the X10 which will be [...]
