Take this with a massive grain of salt, but BGR has just let loose an article detailing what they claim will be either the next Nexus phone or, if not a Nexus, simply the new Android reference handset. Far more exciting than that is what BGR's source has told them what kind of features the phone will be packing:

  • A 720p "monster-sized" display - exact size unknown (also, goodbye qHD - nice knowing you)
  • Dual-core processor @1.2 or 1.5GHz (either a TI OMAP 4460 or a ULP Qualcomm 28nm Krait Snapdragon)
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich (possibly dubbed Android 4.0)
  • Software function buttons (ala Honeycomb - no more capacitive touch)
  • 4G LTE (yes, yes, yes!)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP rear camera w/1080p video, 1MP front camera
  • Release around Thanksgiving

Unfortunately, several big questions remain unanswered.

The Acer Iconia A100 - a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet [unlike the 10" A500... makes sense, right? - Aaron]- was originally slated to hit the market in late May/early June, but has been delayed until August/September due to restrictions with Honeycomb on a 7-inch, 1024*600 display. Honeycomb was designed to take advantage of 10 inch, 1280*800 displays, and according to Digitimes, Google is too busy "resolving other issues" to tend to this little debacle, so Acer had no choice but to delay the device.

Remember last month when Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that they were actively working on porting Honeycomb to x86 processors with hopes of providing us with Intel powered Honeycomb tablets within the year? Well, it turns out that Acer may unveil the first tablet of the bunch at Computex this year: a 10.1 inch, Oak Trail sporting beast, according to Digitimes.

It's rumored that we could see this yet-unnamed tablet on the streets as early as July, but we'll just have to wait and see how that pans out.

Rumors of Amazon's first foray into the tablet world seem to be solidifying. Today, BGR received a tip adding credibility to the potential "family" of devices that the online giant is supposedly prepping. While these devices remain squarely in the realm of rumor, the few details that can be gleaned are pretty juicy.

The tip gave some info on two different tablets: "Coyote," an entry level tablet that will be running NVDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and "Hollywood" - a higher end device powered by NVIDIA's forthcoming quad-core Kal-El SoC.

The HTC Holiday has been somewhat elusive up until now, but 911sniper has gotten ahold of a leaked ROM that, if legit, shows some absolutely beastly specs for this upcoming AT&T monster. Check it out:

Here's the simple breakdown:

  • 4.5 Inch qHD 960x540 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

If the actual device holds true to these specs (and I see no reason why it wouldn't), then this is definitely a piece of hardware to watch for.

It looks like truth may just mirror fiction. Either that or the Android Police team has some scary psychic powers (although some may call it intuition). According to Android And Me's latest rumor, Amazon is indeed set to dip their toes into the waters of the Android device market. Multiple tipsters within the industry have informed them that Amazon is working on an "entire family" of Android devices slates for a holiday 2011 arrival.

A few days ago, the Chinese HTC blog 911sniper that most HTC ROM leaks originate from posted images and a minimal amount of information on HTC's 2 newest and mysterious devices: the Rider and the Kingdom. Not much was known about either, except that the Kingdom has a qHD (540x960px) resolution.

Today, 911sniper gave birth to an actual ROM of the Kingdom, which cleared up quite a few things to us.

I'm a sucker for a good rumor, and I just can't pass up sharing this one with all of you. According to TmoNews, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II might be landing on T-Mobile. How this information came about, however, does make me a little skeptical (I said I'm a sucker for a good rumor, not that I believe every one that comes along).

The above image was taken from Adobe's website, and it appears to show a Galaxy S II on the T-Mo website.

The Google I/O rumor mill has been surprisingly calm this year - certainly calmer than it was last year, that's for sure. But a recent tweet from @MAFiA303, who reportedly "works with Samsung," changes that completely - have a look for yourself:

Frankly, we were expecting to see more than a new iteration of Gingerbread at I/O, but hey - we'll take what we can get, and video chat is a seriously hot addition to mobile Gmail (especially given that "impressive quality" statement).

We heard about Lenovo's Honeycomb-sporting ThinkPad (aka Think Slate) tablet yesterday, but I guess that just wasn't enough rumor coverage for Lenovo. In the same PowerPoint where they found the info on the ThinkPad, tech blog This Is My Next has also stumbled across a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet that could possibly come out sometime in Q4. While there is little known at this point, here are the (rather vague) details from the leak:

  • 7 Inch, 1280x800 display
  • Dual Core ARM processor
  • "Le OS / Honeycomb" Android with Lenovo UI
  • Available Q4 2011

It looks like it should have the same custom interface as the ThinkPad, which we don't really have a lot of information on.
