Google Camera v3.0 Sneak Peek - Part 1: Smart Burst, Creations, and Animated GIFs [APK Teardown]

We're just two weeks away from the anticipated launch date for Android 6.0, up to two Nexus phones, and possibly many other surprises. As we all know, secrets are rarely well-kept as the clock counts down on big new products, and that means bits and pieces occasionally escape. We've got an early look at the resources belonging to Google Camera v3.0, which we expect to see included with the upcoming Nexus handsets and rolling out to the Play Store.

[APK Teardown] Camera v2.5 Is Preparing A New "Smart Burst" Feature That Automatically Picks The Best Photos It Has Taken

Google's Camera app isn't exactly feature-rich, at least not when it is compared to alternatives offered by OEMs and many independent developers. Of course, that may be one of the reasons it is fairly popular – the interface remains simple and the features that did make it in, like Photospheres, are pretty cool. After looking through the latest update, it looks like Google is working toward another major feature addition called Smart Burst, and it might just become the best way to take photos of your friends.

[Update: It's Live!] Pantech Burst Will Be Upgraded To Ice Cream Sandwich Via Pantech's Site On September 27th

PantechUSA announced via Twitter this morning that its Burst budget phone will finally be receiving an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, in a little less than a week.

We should hear more about how the download will be doled out as the date gets closer and, hopefully, some more information on what the update will bring.

[Exclusive] Pantech Burst Rooted, And The Process Is Stupid-Easy

At CES this year, Pantech announced the Burst, its first smartphone to run on AT&T's LTE network. At a measly fifty bones with a two-year contract, its 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage give this little device quite a bang for the buck.

As such, quite a few people may be temped to scoop this little guy up, but there's one major drawback for many users: lack of developer support. It's no secret that some Android devices are much more supported than others by the development community, and a not-yet-rooted Android device is very unappealing to many people.

[Review] For A Budget Phone, The Pantech Burst Packs Plenty Of Bang For The Buck

While the rest of the world looks to the next super-spectacular smartphone with the latest technology, Pantech has decided to keep it simple and cheap with the Burst. This nice little smartphone comes in at a measly $49.99 with a new two-year contract through AT&T, and that makes it great for Android fans on a budget, those looking for a decent but cheap phone for their kids, or people who are new to the smartphone world and are looking to test the waters. I know you must be thinking (because I did, too) that overall quality must suffer greatly for Pantech to get to such a low price point, but that's where you (and I) would be wrong.

[Updated] CES 2012: AT&T Bringing Six New Android-Powered Devices To Its LTE Network In 2012: Sony Xperia Ion, Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket II, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Exhilarate, Pantech Burst, And Pantech Element

AT&T embraced the go big or go home motto like a boss today at CES -- it announced six new Android devices. Three premium phones, two budget phones, and a budget tablet. Not only that, but every single one of these new devices will run on its 4G LTE network. Let's take a look at what we know so far, and we'll update as more info shows up.

Update: I would like to note that just because all of the phones are shown running Gingerbread, that doesn't mean they won't ship with ICS. We may not see many of these devices until Q2, so don't get frustrated.
