A couple of new images of both the internally-named Motorola Spyder, rumored to be the device Moto and Big Red have planned to announce as the Droid RAZR on October 18th, as well as the 8.2-inch variant of the XOOM 2 have surfaced. While we've already seen rough prototype shots of both XOOM 2 variants once before, this new leak shows a much more polished look on the little brother, suggesting that it's near completion and most of the kinks have been worked out.

So, by now you've heard of the Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime/Droid Prime/Samsung Prime... or whatever we're calling it these days. If you haven't, well... you should find a rock with internet access to live under. Details are few and far between, but thanks to the guys over at MyDroidWorld, we have a full listing of the installed system apps to gander at while we wait for something better to come along.

motorola-xoom2-600x388

The Motorola XOOM was a truly unique device: it marked the beginning of the Android tablet era, stole a portion (admittedly a very small one) of the iPad 2's pre-announcement hype, and... weighed about as much as a tank driven by Chris Christie.

Well now its successor, the XOOM 2, has begun to hit the rumor mill - just a few minutes ago, Droid Life leaked two pictures of the slate:

We don't have a ton of information on the device as of yet, but DL's "sources" say that its weight is similar to that of the XOOM (!), and it has "big physical flush" buttons on its back, HDMI and microUSB ports on its bottom, and a SIM card slot.

The Sony S1 and S2 tablets haven't exactly been the best kept secret in Sony's playbook, but we still haven't managed to catch a glimpse of that "heavily modified" version of Honeycomb, either -- until now. Thanks to some screenshots grabbed by CarryPad, we now have a better idea of what this duo of tablets will bring to the table. So lets have a look, shall we?

We finally have a bit more info about the mysterious HTC Vigor - a device that we previously only knew about thanks to a leaked image taken by its 6MP camera. Now, though, this device is coming into the light a bit more, thanks to A NenaMark benchmark ran by an "anonymous" submitter. We now have a better idea of what this handset may be packing under the hood, and it sounds quite pleasing:

  • 1280x720 display (!)
  • Qualcomm Adreno GPU
  • 1.5GHz processor (it's not clear whether it's dual-core or not, but we're hoping that it is)
  • Android 2.3.4
  • It appears to be running on Verizon's network

While this handset may sound pretty great, make a mental note that these types of benchmarks are fairly easy to spoof, so take it all with a grain of salt until we get more proof it its reality.

According to a leaked roadmap that PocketNow recently got a hold of, it looks like LG may have some pretty big things (okay - maybe just one) in store for the remainder of 2011. Everything from low-end to groundbreaking, LG is looking to run the gamut in the Android smartphone game.

Let's have a look, shall we?

LG Prada K2

LG-Prada-K2-sm

The Prada K2 is a super-sleek and thin high-end device rocking some pretty powerful hardware under the hood:

  • 4.3 inch NOVA LCD display
  • Dual-core processor
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3 front camera
  • HSPA+
  • 8.8MM thick
  • Android 2.3

LG Univa

LG-Univa-sm

This Univa appears to be a middle-of-the-road device, as well as somewhat of a sequel to the Optimus One:

  • 3.5 Inch display
  • 800MHz processor
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 11.9MM thick
  • Android 2.3

LG Victor

LG-Victor-sm

The Victor is another solid mid-ranger, with equally indifferent specs:

  • 3.8 inch OLED display
  • 1GHz single-core processor
  • 5MP rear camera, VGA front cam
  • Android 2.3

LG Gelato NFC

LG-Gelato-NFC-sm

As the name states, this is an NFC capable handset, but it also falls into the mid-range category:

  • 3.2 inch HVGA display
  • 800MHz processor
  • 3MP rear shooter
  • Android ??

While the official Gingerbread OTA for the Incredible 2 started rolling out a couple of days ago, there are some users running a previously leaked version of 2.3 that are left out in the cold with no way of updating - until now, that is. Thanks to an anonymous tipster calling himself Pig Benis, we've gotten a hold of the official RUU from Verizon with the build number 2.18.605.4 (the same as the OTA) for your flashing pleasure.

Today, the crew over at TMoNews scored some shots and a few details of a new Samsung device, unofficially dubbed the "Exhibit 4G". As to not waste any time, let's get straight into the specs (keep in mind this is all unconfirmed):

  • 3.7-inch AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz ARM11 processor
  • 5MP Camera with 720p video capture
  • VGA front camera
  • Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread)

That's pretty much all of the details that we have for now, but here are a few shots of the device:

Screen-shot-2011-05-06-at-2.31.05-PMwtmk Screen-shot-2011-05-06-at-3.25.28-PMwtmk

 

Like I said, this is about as unconfirmed as it gets, so take it for what it's worth.

On Monday, we teased you guys with an early look at Gingerbread running on the G2x from This Is My Next. There was some definitely some disappointment in the air when you realized that a download wasn't available at that time, but that all changes now.

This is for rooted devices only.

The leaked version, which also appears to be the final version, of Gingerbread for the G2x is now available for those running rooted devices.

What's this that I have stumbled across this morning? It's none other than some pictures and video footage from This Is My Next of the T-Mobile LG G2x running Gingerbread! No, not a rooted, AOSP version of Gingerbread - it looks to be an official build.

g2x-gingerbread-update-09 g2x-gingerbread-update-03 g2x-gingerbread-update-01

Shortly after the launch of the G2x, T-Mobile said that it would be getting Gingerbread "soon". Of course, we all took that with a grain of salt because, let's be honest here, carriers aren't really the most reliable when it comes to updating their phones.
