HTC Desire HD Caught On Video, Looks Even Sexier Than The EVO?

In case a blurry picture and some unconfirmed specs weren’t enough for you, the Desire HD has already gotten a high quality video leak to call its own, and with it confirmation of all the great specs. While they certainly aren’t anything shocking, it serves to show us that the Desire HD is really pretty much a GSM EVO – but that doesn’t make it less impressive.

  • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash
  • 4.3” WVGA screen
  • 720p recording
  • Android 2.2 with Sense
  • Front-facing camera

The only notable difference I can see between the EVO and Desire HD (besides the lack of a 4G radio in the latter) is the HD’s brushed aluminum body, which looks much nicer than the EVO, in my opinion.

The contour and image enhancement (cranking the brightness all the way up) all but confirmed that Xperia X10 was imminent. Sure enough, this informed guess was correct, and Xperia X10 is headed for AT&T. This will be AT&T’s second high-end Android handset, and the first Android phone from Sony to launch here in the US.

Verizon 2010-2012 Roadmap Leaked, Shows A Whole Lot Of Android Love

BioLock To Bring Biometric Security (Iris Scanner, Facial Recognition) To Android In Late August

Smartphones are rapidly taking over some daily functions previously dominated by our laptops and personal computers, so securing these mobile devices is becoming an increasingly important issue. Information thieves are after your data via malicious software from which you can reasonably protect yourself by being careful; but what about physical device thieves?

There have been a few solutions, such as the native lock screen options (particularly in Froyo) and various remote lock/wipe/track apps, such as WaveSecure, but a new solution is about to become available – BioLock, a biometric security app from Blue Planet Apps.

Another One Bites The Dust: Original Motorola DROID Officially “Out Of Stock” On Verizon Website

With the release of the DROID 2 fast approaching, the death of Motorola’s first Android phone was an unavoidable casualty in the name of progress. While the DROID platform lives on in the Milestone and Milestone XT, a certain piece of Android philosophy has died today with the DROID. Verizon’s website shows the DROID is no longer available:

The DROID 2 will undoubtedly ship with yet another iteration of Motorola’s now-infamous encrypted bootloader, and without the flaws that made the rooting of the DROID X possible.

Mr. Blurrycam Provides Picture Of HTC Froyo Device - Could Be The Desire HD

A blurrycam shot of an unnamed HTC Android device running Android 2.2 (presumably... my Chinese is a little rusty) has been spotted over on the Android Hong-Kong forums (the irony is not lost on me: the picture was taken with an iPhone).

Although the device doesn’t seem to have any physical HTC branding, there is an “HTC Confidential” watermark on the screen of the device, and it’s running an HTC kernel.

RocketFish Android Tablet Spotted - Froyo And A Front-Facing Camera, Powered By Imagination

Early last month, Robert Stephens, CTO for Best Buy, revealed via Twitter that the company was working on an Android tablet. The good news: he’s now tweeted a few pictures of a RocketFish branded tablet, and boy does it look good (actually, it looks startlingly similar to the iPhone 4). The bad news: Engadget says it lacks internals (although I couldn’t find that anywhere). Somehow, despite the fact that it evidently has nothing inside, Stephens claims it runs Froyo and has a front-facing camera for video calling over Fring.
