As I've said a few times previously here, I'm buying an Atrix 4G. I will be patiently waiting outside the Santa Monica AT&T store on that fateful February morning, Peet's coffee in hand, alternatively staring blankly into the store's glass and fiddling with my Nexus One. I'll probably be one of a few people there, but that's ok - I'm not a big fan of crowds.

But the battle only begins at the door.

If you like buying your smartphones at Costco, have I got news for you. Sounds like the king of giant ketchup dispensers will be offering the Atrix 4G as part of its relationship with AT&T, and for the same $150 on-contract figure Amazon quoted (and then quickly unquoted) yesterday.

I know I'll be getting an Atrix 4G come launch day, but I think I'll take a pass on Costco as a vendor.

Toshiba's Android tablet (it remains unnamed) just got an awesome teaser site, complete with specs, 360-degree view, gallery, and confirmation that the device will be running Honeycomb at launch.

We got some personal time with the Toshiba tablet back at CES, and were thoroughly impressed with its tactile rubber finish and large, glossy display. We'll give you a quick refresh on the specs:

  • 10.1" display
  • Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • Stereo Speakers
  • Landscape mode dock
  • HDMI out
  • USB 2.0 port
  • MicroUSB port
  • Headphone and microphone jacks
  • User-replaceable battery
  • Combined volume, screen orientation, and power buttons
  • Full-size SD card slot

The Toshiba tablet is definitely packing some serious heat in the features department, and it's only the second Android tablet I've seen that I might genuinely be interested in buying.

Folks, I wish I could have the pleasure of telling you that what you're about to see is available now or even that it will be available in the next couple of years. Unfortunately, at this stage, this Seabird mobile phone concept, designed by Billy May for Mozilla, is just a dream. A dream, so beautifully projected in this video that it made me feel both sadness and happiness, inspiration and despair, awe and...

Today we are getting a first look at the Toshiba Folio tablet, an Android based powerhouse that was announced at IFA 2010. The Folio looks like it will be another serious contender in what is, apparently, the fast growing market of Android tablets. Looking at its list of features, it should be nothing less than impressive. What features, you ask? How about these:

  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 10.1" 1024x600 display
  • Bluetooth
  • Front facing camera
  • WiFi 802.11B/G/N
  • 3G capable
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 processor (Yeah, that's dual-core)
  • Capacitive display with multitouch support
  • USB host input(!!!)
  • Price €399 WiFi / €499 WiFI & 3G

The tablet looks like it is shaping up to be an awesome device, but based on what we're seeing right now, it still has some hills to climb.

Forget Using Your HTC EVO 4G's Screen As A Flashlight - Use Its Blinding Dual LED Flash Instead
Last Updated: June 6th, 2010

The EVO 4G, which is coming out in only 2 days on June 4th, comes with a pretty decent 8MP camera. One of the best things about the camera is that it in turn comes with a shockingly bright for a cell phone dual LED flash. Here it is:

Forget Using Your HTC EVO 4G's Screen As A Flashlight - Use Its Blinding Dual LED Flash Instead

Wouldn't it be perfect if you could use these LEDs on demand, turning the EVO into a bright flashlight? You can do that with some other phones, and EVO's little sister HTC HD2, which has essentially the same body but runs WinMo, even includes a native app to do so.
