Sound the trumpets and ring the bells - Samsung's much-anticipated Galaxy S II will be arriving in the US next month! How do we know? During the announcement of the South Korean Galaxy Tab 10.1, Shin Jong-kyun, president of mobile business and digital imaging for Samsung, said:
"We expect to release the Galaxy S2 in the U.S. market sometime in August," Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung’s mobile business and digital imaging, told reporters at a media briefing.
Well, isn't this interesting... it appears that Android Central has gotten a hold of a leaked screen with some pretty promising release dates for some highly anticipated phones, including the Motorola Droid Bionic. Let's push that one of to the side for just a moment though and address the first phone on the list: the Droid 3.
We've basically known everything there is to know about the D3 for a while. Read More
Update 6/21/11: The game just went live on the Amazon Appstore, go get it!
P.S. Unavailable on the Hero and XOOM but available on the Tab 10.1 and EVO? I can maybe understand the Hero, but the XOOM?..
Update: According to the comments, the game should work on devices listed as unavailable - you just have to buy it in the web version of the Appstore and then download as usual within the Appstore app. Read More
In probably the least subtle unofficial announcement possible, the Cut The Rope developer team (via Twitter) sent us a message with this picture:
Now, whether there is supposed to be an "Amazon" there is unknown. If so, they might want to change the spelling - lest they give Apple some ammunition in its recent litigation. And if it is an Amazon Appstore release, that means it's likely non-US Android users won't be able to access it for a couple of weeks. Read More
Update 6/14/11: All 3 Thrive variations are now on Amazon as well, for those who prefer themselves some tax-free shopping.
Ever since we saw Toshiba's then-unnamed tablet at CES in January, we've carefully put our ears to the ground to learn all we can about this surprisingly capable device. Today's Thrive news, then, has us excited - pre-orders have started, and all iterations of the tablet (8/16/32GB) will be shipping on the same yet-to-be-announced date next month (Toshiba's site now says "Mid-July").

Sprint subscribers, you can stop holding your breath now - the nation's third-largest carrier has officially announced the release date of the EVO 3D and EVO View 4G. The duo will be coming out of HTC's factories and landing in a Sprint retail store near you on June 24, just as we've been hearing from the rumor mill.
The three-dimensional sequel to the hugely successful EVO 4G will set you back $199.99, a decent price considering what's under its hood:
- Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense 3.0
- 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) glasses-free 3D display
- 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 dual-core processor
- Dual 5MP rear cameras capable of 1080p video recording
- 1.3MP front-facing camera
- 1GB of RAM
- 4GB of internal storage
- WiMAX connectivity
Meanwhile, the EVO View 4G - the CDMA version of the Flyer - will cost $399.99... Read More
Update: One of our commenters has pointed out that a current Sprint carrier-switch incentive plan (offering $125 per line to switch from another carrier) ends on June 23rd. Oddly convenient timing, don't you agree? That makes this date seem even more likely. Thanks Todd!
Well, there's been a lot of rumor-mongering about the EVO 3D's release date, and we've stayed pretty silent on the matter. Today, thanks to the good folks over at Phandroid, we've got a date we feel pretty confident in posting (in the sense that it was probably real at the time the flyer in question was printed):
Aside from the almost annoyingly ever-present Green Hornet ad-placement, at the center of the ad you can clearly see the words "Pre-order the new HTC EVO 3D Today. Read More
After spending some reviewing the Dell Venue last week, I have a renewed interest in the world of all things combining Dell and Android. But, let's face it, Dell hasn't exactly had a great track record with its Android hardware, particularly its first attempt at a tablet - the universally-disliked Streak 7.
The Streak name, then, does evoke a bit of a grimace for most folks familiar with Android hardware. Read More
We've known about the Sprint variation of the Nexus S 4G for over a month now, but now it finally has an official release date. You will be able to get this hunk of Gingerbread-powered love on May 8th for $200 with a new two-year agreement. I'm sure that most of you already know the specs, but what kind of person would I be if I didn't throw in a reminder? Read More
We've been hearing rumors about the release date for the Samsung DROID Charge for a few weeks now, but VZW has just announced that the official launch date for Sammy's first 4G LTE smartphone will be April 28th. Considering that Samsung released the source code for the Charge last week, this comes as little surprise.
The Charge will hit the sales floor for the ridiculously high price of $299 with a new two year agreement. Read More
