HTC Desire Coming To The US In August
Last Updated: December 30th, 2011

The popular in Europe HTC Desire handset is going to be heading to the US in August, HTC officially announced this morning via twitter:

HTC Desire Coming To The US In August

The device will feature the same specs as the European version: 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1 with Sense, HTC's PR rep Ricky tells us.

The only caveat in this announcement is the carrier choice - Desire will be going to regional carriers only, which means the big 4 - Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile - will not be involved.

Is Sprint About To Release 4G To The Bay Area?

It's no secret that Sprint has had the San Francisco Bay Area on its 4G release roadmap for a while, with a planned release time frame of sometime this year. It's always been mind-boggling to me that the heart of the Silicon Valley, where Google itself lives, along with thousands of other tech companies, was not priority #1 for Sprint.

Is it all about to change? I was getting off Caltrain at Mountain View this morning, playing with the EVO, as usual, when I suddenly noticed the 4G widget somehow switched itself on.

In exactly a week, on June 23rd, the 4 giants of the Android world - Motorola, Verizon, Google, and Adobe are set to announce something really great, dubbed "the next generation of Droid" at a special invitation-only press event in New York.

We can only guess what the event will touch on - surely, Droid X and Droid 2 are at the top of the list.

However, noting the presence of Adobe, it makes us wonder whether something much-much bigger is coming, i.e.

Altek Leo Android Phone… Errrrr… DigiCam To Arrive With A 14MP Camera, Xenon Flash, Retractable Lens

Have you ever seen an Android phone that looks more like a camera than a phone? I haven't, until today.

Check out this 14MP supporting, Xenon flash bearing, 3x optical zoom retractable lens carrying phone digital camera with a side effect of also being a phone.

Unfortunately, heading only to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, users can expect to shell out $499 US in Q4 of this year. There is no word on the quality of pictures and videos taken or an ability to take them in HD.

Swype, an alternative Android keyboard, that pretty much turned the whole texting industry upside down a couple of months ago when it debuted, is coming to all Android handsets, regardless of the manufacturer, today, June 16th (hey, that's a nice birthday present for me!).

Previously, you could only get your paws on Swype if you acquired one of very few handsets that came with it preinstalled, downloaded it as part of a limited beta, or mooched a leaked version online.

Galaxy S Pro Confirmed - Coming To Sprint, Sports 4G And A 5-Row Keyboard

Galaxy S, a long-awaited Super AMOLED beauty from Samsung, will not be feeling lonely this summer, as Galaxy S Pro - its keyboard bearing sibling - will be joining Sprint's ranks as well.

The phone will have a 5-row spacious physical QWERTY keyboard, which has a refreshing row dedicated to numbers. Compare it to Motorola Droid's keyboard pictured below to see the obvious differences. We approve.

Additionally, as evident from the photos so gracefully flipped and watermarked by AndroidCommunity, Galaxy S Pro will support 4G, finally giving the recently launched EVO 4G someone to hang out with.

Achievement Unlocked! EVO 4G Now Fully Rooted, NAND Protection Defeated, Full Write Permissions To /system. Incredible Next?

Problems Gaining Root On The EVO

If you've been following the EVO 4G root progress, you would know that the current root status is incomplete:

  • the unrevoked method allows granting root to apps but doesn't allow writing to the /system partition, which means you can't remove applications added by Sprint and do any kind of useful hackery, such as installing custom recoveries or ROMs
  • toastcfh's original method (now known as Part 1), which grants write access to /system but only in recovery mode, which means you need to reboot your phone into a special recovery console to gain those write permissions.

Fresh Evo 0.1d - Better, Faster, More Battery Efficient, With Bloatware Apps Removed

EVO 4G users, listen up! Flipz, the creator of one of the best custom ROMs for CDMA HTC Hero - Fresh ROM, has dropped his first version of a custom ROM for the EVO 4G a few hours ago.

The ROM is faster and more efficient than the stock ROM due to optimizations and bloatware removal (yup, the bloated apps provided by Sprint and some HTC ones are moved to the SD card and disabled!).
