Yes, that's right - at just half an inch thick, the Droid 4 is the world's thinnest 4G LTE QWERTY Smartphone. Not only is it ridiculously thin (for a slider), but it also packs some pretty raw power under it's hood. Check out what it has to offer:
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable)
- 4-Inch "scratch-and-scrape resistant" display
- 16GB internal memory, Up To 32 GB microSD card supported
- Full five-row QWERTY
- 8MP rear shooter with 1080p HD Video Capture
- 4G LTE Capable (duh)
Note from Cameron:
I would like to take this opportunity to put my foot in my mouth.
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.
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.
The tablet flood continues, the latest from Sammy is the Galaxy Tab 7.7 for Verizon. This little guy hopes to stand out from the crowd with the largest OLED display Samsung has ever put on a tablet: a 7.7 inch, Super AMOLED Plus Display.
The "Plus" on the end of "Super AMOLED Plus" means "not pentile," so you're even getting the full compliment of subpixels. It looks like this:
Now for the bad news, it's only Android 3.2, and it's got Touchwiz, and lots of crapware. Read More
Looks like last week's leaked Sprint ad for the Galaxy Nexus was right on the money - The Now Network just officially announced the GN as one of its first 4G LTE devices, alongside the LG Viper.
Even though Sprint has decided to make the GN official, there is still one immediate question looming about: what is the clock speed? Truth be known - we still don't know. The press release is void of any hardware specs, so we'll just have to wait and see if the processor is running at a full 1.5GHz as previously rumored. Read More
We're onto the second day of official pre-CES activities here in Las Vegas, and this morning we got to spend some time with Huawei's newest smartphone - the Ascend P1 S. While the vast majority of information about the device was leaked sometime last night, we had a chance to take some video of the Ice Cream Sandwich device and share a few insights about it, as well as obtain some relevant info on pricing and availability.

Hot on the heels of the unveiling of Fujitsu's ES IS12F, the world's thinnest smartphone, a leaflet circulating at CES today indicates that Fujitsu has something even more awesome in the works. It would seem that Fujitsu is on the brink of revealing a (yet unnamed) smartphone that packs not only Ice Cream Sandwich, but a quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
Little else is known about the mystery device, but judging from the specs we have so far, this phone sounds like a dream machine. Read More
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF700T
Today, ASUS is introducing the Transformer Prime TF700T, its new flagship tablet and upgrade to the Transformer Prime TF201. The TF700T, which according to ASUS does not replace the TF201, remains practically the same as the original Prime, save for a higher resolution (1920x1200) display, a better front facing camera (2MP), and featuring a new back panel design.
When ASUS released the original Prime (TF201), early last month, we described it as one hell of a device, packing more power and newer features in an even smaller package than the original Transformer (TF101). Read More
If you're looking for 4G LTE speeds without having to stay tethered to one carrier for the next two years, MetroPCS just announced a pair of new phones that may (or may not) make you want to hop over to the pay-as-you-go provider - the LG Connect 4G and Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G (sound familiar?).
Left: Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G; Right: LG Connect 4G. Twinsies!
The LG Connect 4G is Metro's most powerful phone to date, rocking a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under its 4-inch Gorilla Glass-protected NOVA display. Read More
Just three days ago we told you about the 6.7mm Fujitsu ES IS12F, the "world's thinnest smartphone." Now, in what must be record time, Huawei has taken that title with the new Ascend P1 S, which comes in at 0.02mm thinner (6.68mm) than the ES IS12F. Tough break, Fujitsu.
Unlike the ES IS12F, the Ascend P1 S doesn't slack in the spec department. It features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960x540) display with Gorilla Glass, a TI OMAP 4460 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, an SGX 540 graphics processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB built-in storage, 8 and 1.3MP rear and front cameras respectively, GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA bands, and Android 4.0.x, all powered by a 1670mAh battery.
