We've been talking about Gingerbread for the Droid Incredible and its on-again-off-again status quite a bit lately, but after the official support docs showed up on VZW's site, we had confirmation of what we knew all along: the update is alive and kicking. It was rumored that it would start rolling out OTA-style earlier in the week but was delayed for unknown reasons, leaving Incredible owners without their cookie-filled upgrade just a little bit longer.

It looks like Sammy has some big news for us in the coming weeks -- we already know we're going to hear about the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note at the IFA conference beginning September 1st, but now we're hearing rumors that Sammy will also unveil LTE versions of the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 8.9, both rocking upgraded specs from their non-LTE counterparts.

The LTE Galaxy S II is said to have a larger, 4.5-inch display along with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (no word on whether it's an Exynos, but we assume that it is) along with the first ever LTE/WCDMA/GSM multi-band radio.

If you've been considering making the jump to Verizon's ultra-fast 4G LTE network, then I can think of no better time to make that commitment than now, as you can score the HTC ThunderBolt for one cent from Amazon Wireless. Like always, signing up with Big Red for two years is a requisite to get that price, but it still saves you $250 over the retail front.

Specs:

  • 4.3 Inch TFT display
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • 8GB built-in storage
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 2.2

So there you go -- a 4G LTE phone for a penny.

Earlier today it was announced that the Droid 3 had officially been rooted. As previously stated, the process doesn't look all that difficult as long as you have ADB set up and ready to go. Now this process is even easier, though, as a 1-click solution has become available! That's not the best part, either -- P3Droid seems to think that this method should work on all Moto phones running Gingerbread.

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

Samsung has an event coming up on Monday where the US Galaxy S II will finally be announced. We've all been waiting for this beast of a phone to hit US shores for some time, but word just broke that one big name will be left out of the announcement: Verizon. That's right, folks, Big Red will not be getting the SGSII.

It's rumored that VZW will instead be getting the Samsung Stratosphere, a QWERTY-slider along the same lines as the Epic 4G, as well as the Nexus Prime.

The Droid 3 is the most powerful Droid to date -- its 1Ghz dual-core OMAP processor and Android 2.3.4 make it a speedy and capable device. As with most devices, D3 owners wanted root access in order to take full advantage of all that it had to offer. That day has finally arrived, as the D3 has been rooted by developer drjbliss from the XDA forums.

The rooting process seems to be rather easy, granted you have ADB set up and know how to use it.

Buried deep within Samsung's Unpacked app is evidence of a few upcoming devices set to be announced at the IFA conference in Berlin, which begins on September 1st. Among the outed devices are two new additions to the Galaxy line, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note.

As you might expect, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will most likely be a 7.7 inch tablet, judging by the naming guidelines set in place by the Tab 10.1 and Tab 8.9.
