Why You Should Never Buy A Low-End Android Phone On A Major US Carrier (Read: They’re Junk, And You’re Getting Screwed)

Android’s massive worldwide popularity has, in large part, the availability of cheap, low-end handsets to thank. We all know this. In developing markets in Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, Android powers almost all of the smartphones that are being purchased by growing numbers of prepaid subscribers.

Cheap Android phones are, for that reason alone, a great thing. They’re empowering consumers in developing economies, giving them access to the full web wherever they go - something that has generally been the privilege only of the wealthy and of Western nations in the past decade.

LG Officially Announces The DoublePlay - Because Two Screens Are Always Better Than One

Confirming the leak from last week, LG and T-Mobile USA have announced the whacky LG DoublePlay Android 2.3 smartphone. In portrait mode the phone is a fairly standard, albeit smallish, Android device, but slide it open and suddenly you have an extra screen in between a full QWERTY keyboard.

LG DoublePlay

When we first posted images of the DoublePlay its specs and features were uncertain, we can now confirm the following:

  • 3.5-inch main display, 2.0-inch sub display
  • 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • 5MP camera with 720p video recording
  • "Group Text" - create group chats on-the-go for faster content sharing
  • "Cloud Text" - send and receive texts between a PC or a tablet

The press release boasts a lot about the DoublePlay's dual capacitive touch screens, which supposedly makes the device the "ultimate multitasking handset".

LG Doubleplay Press Shots Leak - What The Heck Is This Thing?

Who's in the market for a whack looking phone with some sort of flip-out hybrid keyboard-screen? You are? Then the LG Doubleplay is singing your song. Check this... thing... out:

LG-Doubleplay

Don't worry. I gagged, too.

The Doubleplay will most likely be a low-end phone, judging by the reported 320x480 display and weak 5MP camera. That doesn't keep it from being unique though, with a secondary LCD that will probably serve very little practical purpose embedded right in the middle of the keyboard.

T-Mobile Announces Enhanced Functionality For Bobsled, Its Universal Web Calling Service

T-Mobile announced today some interesting updates to Bobsled. In collaboration with Vivox, Bobsled is T-Mobile's bid at providing "a universal way to communicate however and whenever when connected to the Web."

First in the lineup of T-Mobile's improvements to its Bobsled service is the ability to call, message, and voice message their Facebook contacts at any time.

[Updated] Want Google Wallet On Your T-Mobile Or AT&T Nexus S? Flash This Mod, Courtesy Of XDA

A couple of weeks ago, the whole tech world was abuzz with the official launch of Google Wallet, a revolutionary new service that looks to replace your tired old credit cards in lieu of your Android-powered smartphone. As great as that sounds, there is one small  problem: it's only officially available on one device - the Nexus S 4G on Sprint.

While NFC hasn't been widely adopted in the smartphone market yet, the NS4G wasn't even the first device to pack the appropriate hardware -- it was actually T-Mobile's Nexus S (which is the same as AT&T's Nexus S).

Court Accepts Verizon And T-Mobile Briefs Supporting Samsung, Denies Apple's Request To Respond

When Verizon and T-Mobile filed amicus curiae briefs in favor of Samsung in the company's ongoing patent litigation against Apple in the Federal Court for the Northern District of California, we cheered inside a little. It's always nice to see Android and its handset partners have friends in high places.

However, the question of how the court would respond to these briefs remained - as the decision is an entirely discretionary one.
