HTC-Aria2-536x702

Thought the miniscule HTC Aria wouldn't be getting a bite-sized scoop of Froyo to call its own? Wrong! ls377 over at the Android Central Forums has packaged the leaked Froyo Sense RUU for the Aria into a flashable .zip file. There isn't really much else to say other than that you can flash it just like any other ROM (through Recovery Mode or through an app like ROM Manager) and that some users seem to be having issues with the Android Market.

All together now: finally! After several broken promises and recalled updates, Samsung's just announced that Android 2.2 FroYo will be available through a "brand new version of Kies" (that's Samsung's software upgrade system) early in November for Galaxy S owners in the UK, while "all operator versions" are "expected" to be available by the end of November (hopefully that includes the "operator versions" of the Galaxy S that Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are currently carrying here in the States).

ATT-Uverse-logo-2009

 

I'm usually not too fond of carrier's bloatware, manufacturer's skins, and other causes of lag and potential frustration for end users (not to mention that I'm especially skeptical when it's coming from AT&T), but AT&T's new U-verse Mobile app for Android isn't looking too bad. To be clear, this isn't anything new; the app's already been available for the iPhone, the Blackberry, and the Xbox 360 in addition to being available on Windows Phone 7 devices at launch, but now it's made its way to our operating system of choice!

The Flipout, Motorola's latest AT&T-bound Android phone, isn't exactly the most exciting device on the planet - this isn't even the first time we're seeing the square little bugger - and considering the fact that the Droid 2 can now be had for the low-low price of just $0.01, I suspect that charging $79.99 (or $349 off contract) won't win over many new customers for AT&T.

Nevertheless, for those of you who don't mind a 2.8-inch QVGA display, Amazon's touting the Flipout for the same price as the Droid 2 - $0.01 - on a new two-year contract.

Who thinks strictly black and gray phones are gloomy and boring? I do and, thankfully, so does Best Buy. A few months ago, the retailer announced an exclusive white EVO 4G, and today we got word of not 1 but 2 more white Android phones arriving on October 24: Verizon's Samsung Fascinate and AT&T's slightly outdated Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. While the exact pricing on either of these is unknown, you can head over to Best Buy today and reserve the device of your dreams with a $50 deposit.

A few days ago, a new version of Universal Androot was released with support for Froyo, but a number of devices were still incompatible.

Android hackers have definitely come a long way since first rooting the T-Mobile G1 - it is no longer a surprise to see a device rooted on or even before launch day.

Even though they were the last major carrier in the US to release an Android phone, you can't question AT&T's commitment to Android now! Their latest offerings are all from Motorola and all feature the MOTOBLUR UI, but are still a huge step up from phones like the Cliq and the Backflip.

Each runs Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR on top and feature a lackluster 3.2 megapixel camera. However, that is where the similarities between the phones end.

A version of the Motorola Flipout designed just for AT&T? Not possible, they say.

Ah, but what's this? According to a recent auction on eBay hosted by seller hotjdragon, who, mind you, has a satisfaction rating of 99.9%, this square little device is indeed real and is indeed selling for the off contract price of $388.88. Of course, it's always possible that AT&T will jack up this price in order to lock customers into a two-year service agreement, but, at least for now, here is what $388.88 gets you:

  • a "brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item [Motorola Flipout] in its original packaging" along with a GSM radio designed for AT&T, although, of course, it is sold off contract
  • specs like :
    • a 700MHz OMAP3410 processor
    • a 2.8-inch QVGA (320x240) display, similar to that of the Charm
    • a 3MP camera
    • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
    • WiFi 802.11 b/g
    • Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
    • a 1170 mAh battery
    • a 2MB MicroSD card out of the box that can be swapped up to any other capacity microSD up to 32GB
    • a swiveling form factor
    • assisted GPS and eCompass for location services
    • a 3.5mm headset jack
  • MotoBlur on top of Android 2.1 Eclair
  • packaging that looks something like this:

  • and a device that looks something like this:

If you want one, you better hurry, though, as there appears to be only a few left!

Rain, shine, or literally freakin' tornado in the part of the country which isn’t supposed to have such weather, Android Police is there. As promised, I attended the press event thrown by Samsung on Thursday, during which they were to announce their "latest Android-powered device" as well as their new Media Hub service.

While the fact that Samsung was to announce a tablet device was officially a secret, we all pretty much knew the mystery device was going to be the Galaxy Tab.
