Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed most of the world has been focusing their attention on the 2010 World Cup, which officially started yesterday. We know many of you would love to be able to watch the matches on you phone while you’re out and about, so we’ve put together a few ways that this can be done.

One of the really cool things about the World Cup games this year is that so many sites are streaming them live, for free, making it pretty easy to catch a match wherever you’re at as long as you have high speed internet and access to a computer.

Yeah, so the title may be a bit confusing, but it’s more or less an accurate summary. Basically, AT&T released a (promo?) video detailing their testing procedure for Android phones, in which Dante Martin, a device product manager at AT&T, waves around a HTC Android handset that looks a whole lot like the Aria whose leaked pictures were outed a few weeks ago.

In addition to those leaked pictures, ROM developer Coinflipper sent Android Central a render of a HTC device dubbed the ‘Liberty’.

Apple iOS 3 & 4 VS Android 2.1

In This Corner!

For better or worse Apple has dropped their latest update regarding the groundbreaking iPhone this week along with the official release date for their next version of the phone’s operating system, which has now been dubbed ‘iOS’.

Apple iOS 3 & 4 VS Android 2.1 "Eclair" & 2.2 "Froyo": Fight!

A big thanks to Ian Douglas for all the work he did putting the chart together, and to my fiancee for the image

The announcement comes on the heels of last Friday’s uber-successful launch of the Sprint EVO 4G, which shares many of the same features with the new iPhone.

A few weeks ago, Froyo started to find its way onto the phones of a few lucky journalists and random twitter users, and then eventually into the hands of the hackers over at XDA-Developers.

At the time, speculation abounded as to whether or not this was the official OTA. It wasn’t until a few days later when we received word that this was actually a release candidate, intended for a small group of testers and not consumption by the general public.

Last Updated: April 2nd, 2011

UK readers only: if you like adorable handsets running an operating system with an adorable mascot or, and perhaps more importantly, if you like free things, then you owe the X10 Mini a few minutes of your time.

It’s not the most powerful Android handset on the block, and hell, it’s not even running Android 2.1, for an attractive, and again, free, Android handset, it’s not a bad deal.

Of course, as with most free phone offers, it will require you to sign your soul away for two years with a new contract, but on the bright side, you have your choice of four carriers to deal with.

One of the things I love most about Android is that when one phone does especially well, it’s a benefit to the entire Android community. The more users that have Android phones in their hand, the more incentive developers have to focus on the Android platform.

In this case, the phone doing especially well is the EVO 4G, which shattered Sprint’s single day sales record, and now, is completely sold out after being on the market for only 4 days.

There’s been an increasing amount of buzz on the interwebs this week regarding a potential launch of the Samsung Galaxy S here in the United States in the next coming months. Rather than several posts covering each detail, I figured I’d just tie them all into one giant lump of Samsung-y goodness.

First, the facts: We know for sure that Samsung is planning an event in New York City on June 29th centered entirely around the Galaxy S.

Good news for users of the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G: It seems you will be receiving some Froyo love after all!

Nothing is 100% official at the moment, but the T-Mobile fanatics over at TmoNews have a pretty convincing screenshot that supposedly details the upcoming upgrade for the MyTouch 3G.

In addition to the upgrade to 2.2, T-Mobile is apparently planning on throwing in the modified ‘Faves Gallery’, and ‘Genius Button’ applications as well.

This may have not been the biggest cell phone announcement of the day, but Motorola has officially unveiled the Motorola Milestone XT720, a Europe-bound phone that looks like, but apparently isn’t, a Motorola Motoroi.

According to Engadget, this phone is a ‘sister phone’ of the Motorola Motoroi, an Android phone that launched in Korea earlier this year. The specs are similar, though I’ve been reading conflicting reports on what exactly the Milestone XT720 is packing.

I’m sure Dan Hesse (CEO of Sprint Nextel) is celebrating tonight. Sprint’s had their share of financial difficulties over the last few years, and after the recent the troubles that Palm has had, they’ve needed a new flagship phone to replace the aging Pre and it seems the EVO 4G might just be that phone.

Various blogs and first hand accounts from customers have mentioned that Sprint’s activation system has been buckling under the weight of all of the eager, soon-to-be Android owners trying to activate their phones.
