It looks like Kyocera is giving this Android thing another go, this time in the form of a mid-range device set to hit Sprint on September 9th called the Milano. Sporting a 3-inch display, 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM, and Android 2.3, the Milano is nothing amazing, but if you're not looking for a powerhouse like the Epic 4G Touch, then this little daisy should work out just fine.

Not only that, but it won't break the bank, either -- the price is as small as the phone, at only $50 with a two-year agreement.

Finally! The long awaited Gingerbread update for both the Droid Incredible and ThunderBolt will be hitting the airwaves in September, according to HTC's official Twitter.

While several leaked Android 2.3.x builds for each device have surfaced over the past few months, none of them were deemed good enough to achieve "official" status, so it's good to know that HTC has finally put the finishing touches on each.

No solid date has been set, so just know that your waiting will finally come to an end within the next few weeks.

Sony has finally lifted the curtain on its upcoming Tablet S and Tablet P, formerly known as the S1 and S2, at today's IFA event. While there is little left to known about this dynamic duo, it's nice to finally get an official look at each of them.

Previously known as the S1, Tablet S is a 9.4-inch Honeycomb 3.1 tablet that comes in the normal 16GB and 32GB variants, along with the dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz under the hood.

In the ongoing saga that is the AT&T and T-Mobile merger, yet another bump in the road has surfaced. This time it's directly from the United States government, who says that if the AT&T/T-Mobile merger were to go through, it would "remove a significant competitive force from the market." As a result, the U.S. has filed an antitrust complaint looking to block the proposed deal.

While this doesn't mean a guaranteed rejection, it is most definitely going to make progress much harder for Ma Bell.

We've been hearing rumors about a 10-inch HTC tablet codenamed Puccini for nearly three months now, and AT&T has finally taken the wraps off of this Honeycomb 3.1 tablet, revealing its official name, price, and availability.

The tablet will be known as the HTC Jetstream and will run on Ma Bell's brand-spankin'-new LTE network, sporting the previously rumored hardware:

  • 10.1-inch display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • LTE (700/AWS)
  • HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100 MHz)
  • EDGE/GPRS (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Android 3.1 with Sense UX
  • HTC Scribe Pen included

While this may sound like a pretty solid device, the price doesn't even begin to justify it: $699 with a two-year agreement.

If there is one thing that I'm always interested it, it's new browsers for my tablet. I can honestly say that I've used nearly every available browser in the Market - both optimized for Honeycomb and not. While I currently switch between Dolphin for Pad and the stock browser, I've been longing for a Honeycomb optimized version of Firefox for some time. It looks the Mozilla Mobile team heard my quiet cries, as they showed off some of the features of the upcoming browser in an official blog post earlier today.

Aside from the inclusion of LTE connectivity, this device will be housing a 1.5GHz processor (most likely Exynos), NFC, and a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display, making this the most likely candidate for beastliest device of the year.

In order to combat weak signal-strength inside the home, T-Mobile will unleash a new program that offers signal boosters to its customers beginning on September 7th. The boosters will increase the available signal of T-Mo's 3G and 4G networks, but, like with most things, has certain downfalls:

  • Signal Boosters are not available in multi-family residence (i.e. apartment, condo, etc)
  • You must be able to receive at last one bar of 3G service anywhere within the house
  • The booster is T-Mobile's property and a fee of up to $500 may be charged if the device is damaged or not returned upon cancellation
  • The booster will require a two-year agreement with the associated line

Despite the fact that a two-year agreement is required and the user is held responsible for any possible damages, the booster will not cost any additional monthly charges.
