Google-Nexus-S1

Vodafone has officially announced they will be launching a black and white Nexus S on contract in 24 countries worldwide. Vodafone, which was one of Google's first carrier partners for the Nexus One, has listed the device as "coming soon" on their website. This should bump Nexus S sales a bit in the UK as up until now, the Google-branded handset was only available in the UK unlocked.

At this point, we do not have any details on a price or probable launch date, but look for this device soon.

Some internal document sent somewhere at some point today was captured by someone and then sent on to Droid-Life, and the news it contains isn't going to be making anyone particularly happy:

thunderbolt-delay

Here's the deal: the Thunderbolt won't be launching on the 14th (next week). Amazon and Best Buy apparently had it wrong, and Amazon has since updated its page to reflect that unknown launch date.

The Thunderbolt's Mobile Hotspot feature has also been pushed back, but I would assume this is merely to accommodate the device's new release date.

Earlier this year, on June 16th (which also happens to be my birthday), I stepped out of a train in Mountain View and, to my delight, caught my first ever 4G signal in the Bay Area. It seems I was not alone, and soon many of you were reporting seeing a weak signal, which slowly grew stronger and spread across the Bay.

Fast forward 6 months, and the announcement is finally here - Sprint just unleashed the 4G hounds and is officially supporting San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, and Oakland in full capacity.

As the Thanksgiving weekend is coming to an end, residents of Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Miami, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus can say thank you to Sprint today as well. The nation's 3rd largest mobile carrier announced that 4G, otherwise known as WiMax, is officially live in the aforementioned cities. This puts the Los Angeles area full 2 days ahead of schedule, as the 4G launch there was expected on December 1st.

The latest carrier to secure a version of LG's newest entry-level phone - the Optimus One - is MetroPCS, the country's fifth-largest carrier. It will be the carrier's first Android phone, and will cost just $229 with no contract and $50 for a monthly plan that grants access to unlimited data, talk, and text. The phone will be available in stores and online on November 24, just in times for the holidays.

Specs

The LG Optimus One, the latest Android phone to hit all four national carriers (though AT&T has yet to announce its version), has finally launched on Big Red as the Vortex. Before deciding if this entry-level phone is right for you, be sure to take a look at the specs:

  • Android 2.2 with custom LG launcher and widgets
  • 3.2-inch 320x480 (HVGA) screen
  • 3.2MP camera
  • 600 MHz processor
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • 170MB internal memory

If you're planning on buying the phone directly from Verizon, you may want to re-consider, as it will cost you $79.99 with a new two-year contract.

Smack down in between the New York Sprint 4G launch on November 1st and the upcoming Los Angeles launch on December 1st, Sprint announced today that the California state capital is also joining the WiMax party, effective immediately. Sacramento residents will now be able to enjoy average download speeds of 3-6 Mbps and upload speeds of around 500 Kbps-1.5 Mbps.

Now does anyone know what phone the governator is sporting?

Can't say we didn't see this one coming - exactly on schedule, Sprint today officially launched its 4G WiMax service in The Big Apple. In addition to NYC, 5 other cities that went live today include Hartford and New Haven in Connecticut, New Brunswick and Trenton in New Jersey, and Tampa in good old Florida.

Epic 4G and EVO 4G users, fire up your devices and give these new networks a good test so that you can feel better about paying that $10 "premium data" fee for all those months before 4G.

Right alongside the launch of the Galaxy Tab, Verizon prepared to launch two Android-running phones on November 11: the ticker-equipped Samsung Continuum and Motorola's latest lower-end handset, the Citrus.

Samsung Continuum

As previously reported, the Continuum is a member of the Galaxy S family, albeit a rather odd one. The technical specs are largely the same as previous Galaxy S phones, with a few big changes:

  • 3.4", 800 x 480 Super AMOLED screen
  • 1 GHz Hummingbird processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • 720p recording
  • 2 GB internal memory
  • 8 GB microSD card pre-installed
  • TouchWiz atop Android 2.2
  • 96 x 480 "ticker" below main screen

Clearly, what sets the Continuum apart from the slew of other Android phones available is the secondary screen, which is said to be used for notifications, RSS feeds, Facebook, as well as music controls.
