Our guess on the OEM is ZTE, but don't quote us on it. Given Sprint's relationship with the company in the past (especially on its prepaid subsidiaries), a Sprint-branded ZTE handset would make the most sense.

UK Judge To Apple: Your Apology Is Bogus, Rewrite It (Or, How Not To Deal With A Court Order)

It seems Apple is getting far more than it bargained for in its failed iPad lawsuit in the UK, having been ordered by a judge there to run statements in both print and on its website clearly stating that Samsung's Galaxy Tab had not copied the company's own tablet. Of course, when Apple ran the apology on its UK website, it was one paragraph of acknowledgement of the judgment, and four paragraphs of reasons why that judgment was stupid, essentially.

LG Viper On Sprint Finally Getting An OTA Update To Ice Cream Sandwich

It's hard to believe that any high(er) end  phone released within the last six months shipped with Gingerbread, but sadly, that's the case. Sprint's first LTE smartphone, the LG Viper, was one such device. Thankfully, the company is now pushing out an OTA update that will bump the Android version up to 4.0.

Photo Sphere May Be Android's Greatest Feature Yet - And Everyone Needs To Know About It

Pictures. If there is one thing we love to share on the internet, it's images.

And I think that's because it's kind of difficult to communicate what we see in life without them - you need that visual aid. Printing or developing photos is time-consuming and inconvenient, and so when digital cameras began to catch on in a big way, right around the same time as broadband internet, people went absolutely mad sharing photos on the web.

[Updated] Google Maps Navigation Comes To Singapore And Hong Kong

If you've ever found yourself lost in Singapore or Hong Kong, then I'm sorry. I hear that if you run into the wrong part of town things can get... bad.
