Everyone's favorite Twitter tipster has just dropped some interesting (and disappointing) images on us. For those of you hoping for bezel-free display on a Motorola phone, you may be in for a bit of a wait if this is all Motorola is planning on releasing today. The image shows us two Verizon-bound Motorola devices and, well... they look about the same as most other Motorola devices. The two devices appear to be images of the very-very-soon-to-be-announced RAZR M and RAZR HD. Read More
It looks like the recently-rumored LG Intuition for Verizon could be coming to fruition within the next week. According to some leaked shots from Verizon's equipment guide, the overly-large device should hit Big Red's website on September 6th, with retail availability from the 10th.
For those who may be unaware, the Intuition is Verizon's version of the oddly proportioned LG Optimus Vu. Featuring a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, Android 4.0.x, and 4:3 5" 1024x768 display, the Intuition is the device designed for folks with big and hands and even bigger heads.

No, it's not an Evo. Don't let your eyes deceive you. What you're looking at are leaked pictures of an in-development HTC device. We don't know much about this one just yet. The phone lacks any carrier-specific branding, though the red accents are pretty typical of Verizon color schemes, such as the Droid Incredible.
The site that posted these photos originally, PhoneHK, makes mention of this being a 5" device. Read More
South Korean manufacturer Pantech still hasn't made it big in the U.S. market, but their partnership with AT&T has proven to be a steady one so far. The Magnus, AKA the P9090 that we spotted earlier this week, would seem to be Pantech's first high-end device for AT&T, and the first photos of the device have now hit the Internet. It looks like a pretty standard slate phone, with the interesting addition of an asymmetrical duo-tone plastic back. Read More
While the GSM Galaxy Nexus has been running Jelly Bean since Google I/O, there hasn't been a single word of the update for the Verizon Nexus. Until now.
Last night, one lucky XDA member received a system update on his phone to install build JRO03O, which is the newest Jelly Bean build we've heard of.
It's pretty evident that this is just a test build, as there's nary a word about the update anywhere else; even Verizon's support channel is void of any info. Read More
While the name Pantech may not bring about thoughts of high-end superphones right now, it looks like the company may be about to change that with an upcoming P9090 "Magnus." This mysterious device first hit the FCC back at the beginning of August sporting AT&T bands, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0, but now a couple of benchmarks have made their way to Righware, giving us a closer look at what the device's potential innards.

While the original Stratosphere is in line to get a kinda-sorta ICS-esque update, it looks like its successor is already in the pipeline for VZW. Unoriginally dubbed the Stratosphere 2, the device carries the same slide-out QWERTY and 4" Super AMOLED display as its predecessor; other than that, details are pretty non-existent. We probably wouldn't be too off base to assume it'll have some sort of dual-core processor and around 1GB of RAM, but past that, it's hard to say. Read More
After catching sight of Jelly Bean for Samsung's Galaxy SIII on video, then seeing a leaked build for the i9300 pop up on XDA, it looks like T-Mobile's variant of Sammy's latest powerhouse has its own leaked Jelly Bean goodness.
Earlier today, XDA user LuffarJoh posted up what seems to be an early (though enticing) OTA file for T-Mobile's Galaxy SIII (aka T999) that will bring your device up to 4.1.1. Read More
Yesterday, we saw a leaked image of an HTC phone said to be internally called the "Proto." Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, it was brought to our attention that this isn't a new device at all; it's a slightly more powerful version of the Desire V that's already been released in international markets.
Left: Proto leak; Right: Desire V (from HTC.com)
The only difference between the two? The Proto is said to sport a 1GHz dual-core processor, whereas the Desire V has a 1GHz single-core chip. Read More
Since hearing earlier this month that HTC's Desire S, Thunderbolt, and other select handsets would receive ICS updates "by the end of August," we have heard nary a peep from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Today though, thanks to an alleged leaked RUU, we have a stock Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 build for the Thunderbolt (aka Mecha).
According to Administrator's post at TeamBAMF's forums, the ROM, based on a leaked RUU (and carrying build number 7.00.605.2), is said to be fully functional and fully stock, but it's worth noting that the ROM is deodexed and rooted, meaning those wishing to retain root are in luck, but if you – for one reason or another – want a strictly stock, non-rooted experience, you'll have to wait.
