Looks Like There's Another Facebook Phone On The Horizon - The FCC Meets Motorola's EX225 and EX226

It looks like Motorola has a Facebook feature phone up its sleeve - the Motorola EX225 is set to join ranks with the HTC Status as a socially-focused phone with a dedicated Facebook key. A device almost exactly like the EX225 - sans the Facebook integration - also made an appearance at the FCC, affectionately named EX226.

Tests confirm that both devices are headed for AT&T with 3G capability, though the EX226 only supports AT&T's 850MHz spectrum and lacks compatibility with 802.11n.

Not much else is known about these phones for now, but with their appearance at the FCC, we should be hearing more details soon enough.

Hexage Updates EVAC And EVAC HD With New Levels And Reduces Price To $0.00

Hexage has decided to update their popular retro-style Pacman-esque game EVAC (and EVAC HD) with some new levels and more importantly release it for free! Our esteemed editor reviewed the game some time back and he was particularly impressed by its "magical" soundtrack.

ss-480-5-5 ss-480-6-5 ss-480-7-5 ss-480-0-6

According to Droid Gamers, both versions of EVAC are completely free and contain no ads whatsoever. It seems as though Hexage has decided to adopt a freemium model whereby they will offer in-game purchases that can be used to pass difficult levels, extend the number of lives, and obtain longer lasting power-ups.

First Photos Surface: Toshiba's Beautiful New Excite Tablet

Remember a couple of days ago when we reported that Toshiba may be unveiling a slim new tablet at IFA to compete with the Galaxy Tab 10.1? It turns out the rumor was true, and Notebook Italia has released the first live photos of what we suspect will be called the Toshiba Excite.

Despite the iffy appearance of the various ports shown in the initial renders, Notebook Italia confirms that the tablet has microSD, microUSB, and mini HDMI ports. Rumor has it that this beauty is also packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (the OMAP4460 from Texas Instruments, to be exact).

Music Lovers Rejoice - Sony Ericsson Unveils "Live With Walkman" Android Smartphone

The "Walkman" brand name, originally created by Sony over 30 years ago, lives on in Sony Ericsson's newest Android device, the "Live with Walkman". This diminutive smartphone, announced in a press release earlier today, will be a music playing device first and foremost with a dedicated music discovery button and "deep Facebook integration," which means it will most likely carry something similar to (or exactly like) Sony's "Facebook inside Xperia" interface.

  • 3.2-inch capacitive touch-screen display (480 x 320 pixels)

Samsung Galaxy S II Coming Soon To The US - Sign Up To Find Out Exactly When

Users anticipating the US arrival of Samsung's Galaxy S II superphone can now sign up to be notified of this beast-of-a-device's stateside availability via Samsung's Galaxy S II US landing page.

2011-07-28 13h26_50

You have to drop in some basic information like name, email, phone number, and carrier preference, and you're in. I received a text message immediately after signing up asking if I want to be notified via SMS as well, so expect nearly-immediate info regarding this device.

It's probably worth noting that if you do opt in to receiving SMS messages that Sammy will send a max of four messages per month, so users that don't have an unlimited text message package won't go bankrupt waiting for info on their new phone.
