EVO-Design-600x532

After yesterday's absolutely insane phone announcement-bomb, HTC and Sprint have subtly unveiled the EVO Design 4G. If you're looking for an upper mid-range device that won't break the bank, the Design 4G has your number, as it's packing decent, but not (yet) outdated hardware:

  • 4-inch qHD display
  • 1.2Ghz single-core Snapdragon processor
  • 5MP rear shooter with HD video capture (720p), 1.3MP ffc
  • Android 2.3.5 with Sense
  • WiMax

Sure, it doesn't compare to the recently announced Motorola Droid RAZR or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but at $200 cheaper it definitely has its appeal.

It was inevitable that the question is the bootloader locked? would pop up within minutes of Moto's RAZR announcement. The answer should come as a shocker to no one: Yes. According to Moto's Twitter, the bootloader will indeed be locked. It's not necessarily Motorola's choice, though, as the tweet specifically states that "the bootloader was locked per the carrier" Oh snap -- it was all Verizon's fault.

What does this mean for future Big Red devices?

Update: Looks like WiFiKill was in violation of Google's terms and conditions, as it "could be used in a way that is harmful to devices, networks, or users," per Google itself. No worries, though -- the dev has the free version available on his forum, and if you want to show some donation love, you can grab the ad-free version from SlideMe.

Have you ever wanted to evict someone from your Wi-Fi network for whatever reason?

Hot on the trails of this morning's Galaxy Nexus confirmation comes yet another leak of the device, but this time it includes some eye candy. It looks like it's a Japanese magazine ad of some kind, but all the important parts are in English, including hardware specs and Android version number. Have a look:

Here's a rundown of what this ad does tell us:

  • 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display (possibly rounded up from the rumored 4.65)
  • 1.2GHz OMAP4460 Processor (likely underclocked from 1.5GHz)
  • Ice Cream Sandwich will indeed be Android 4.0
  • Galaxy Nexus is the official name

All this information lines up with what we've been hearing for the past couple of weeks, so it's more of a confirmation than anything else.

Earlier today, Samsung made available the kernel source code for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II -- the latest of many source releases from Sammy. Of course, if you're not into developing, hacking, or modding Sammy phones, this sort of thing is of little value to you. However, if Moto is your flavor, and you want to make a beastly phone a bit more beastly, listen up: Motorola just released the Bionic source.

If you already use Remember the Milk to handle your todo lists, then there's a good chance you already know about this update. If you're not currently using RtM, though, then maybe it's time to give it another look.

The latest update brings an enhanced interface for more intuitive task management, as well as some new features and widgets. The updated app also includes another major change: it's now free for everyone.

We've already seen the source for the AT&T Galaxy S II, the Epic 4G Touch, and a handful of other new devices, so why not throw T-Mo's Galaxy S II into the mix? Sammy dropped the code earlier today -- hit the link below to download it. Let's see how fast that Snapdragon will actually run, gents.

Earlier today, the Droid RAZR teaser site went live, revealing bits and pieces of the upcoming device as specific bloggers input the codes sent to them directly from Motorola. There's only one problem with that: we're still waiting for most of the bloggers to enter said codes. Luckily, one of our readers starting digging through the teaser page's source code and uncovered the full image. Have a look:

So, do you want to see how the Galaxy S II compares to the iPhone 4S when dropped directly onto concrete? Yeah, we thought you might -- and you you may actually be surprised at the results. Before you watch the video, though, I must warn you: watching these electronics plummet to their (presumed) demise can be a bit cringe inducing, even to not-so-squeamish among us. With that caveat out of the way, have a look at the video:

Pretty impressive, no?

Remember the Droid Bionic teaser site? If not, here's a quick refresher: four different blogs received some weird artifacts, each of which including a corresponding code. Once that code was entered into the site, it unlocked a new part of the video that ultimately unveiled the Bionic. Looks like Moto is doing something similar for the upcoming Droid RAZR, as it has sent out clues to 16 different blogs, all of which include a special unlock code that reveals a new feature of the RAZR.
