Samsung Galaxy S
Last Updated: July 1st, 2010

It was reported some time ago that the Samsung Galaxy S would hit every major carrier in the US – and it seems like the prediction was dead on. First announced for AT&T as the Samsung Captivate, the Galaxy S has already been confirmed for T-Mobile as the Samsung Vibrant, and was just announced as the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon, and an unnamed version of the device for US Cellular.

AT&T and Samsung Announce Captivate, Force Me To Eat My Words
Last Updated: June 23rd, 2010

Just in from AT&T and Samsung (days after I say AT&T has no high-end Android phones, no less) – the dead sexy Captivate, described in the press release as part of the Galaxy S class of devices, will be coming to AT&T in the near future.

We’ve been talking about this phone and its variations for some time now, and all in all we have high hopes for it – and it looks set to deliver.

If you’ve been paying attention to the news releases regarding the HTC Aria, you know that AT&T will once again be locking down the apps users can install by restricting unofficial app downloading. If you’ve been paying attention for a while now, you also know that they did the same thing to the Motorola Backflip – the only other Android phone they offer.

Both phones already feature smaller, lower def screens, when compared to their Android brethren available on other networks.

Good news, AT&T customers – starting June 20, AT&T will begin selling its first HTC Android device, the Aria. A few days ago, they (accidently?) released a video showing the HTC “Liberty” being tested. At the time, we speculated that it might actually be the HTC Aria we’d heard about before. Turns out we were probably correct, as various news outlets have been receiving the Aria to play around with, and they look to be one and the same.

Yeah, so the title may be a bit confusing, but it’s more or less an accurate summary. Basically, AT&T released a (promo?) video detailing their testing procedure for Android phones, in which Dante Martin, a device product manager at AT&T, waves around a HTC Android handset that looks a whole lot like the Aria whose leaked pictures were outed a few weeks ago.

In addition to those leaked pictures, ROM developer Coinflipper sent Android Central a render of a HTC device dubbed the ‘Liberty’.

Dell Streak

Several users attending D8 have reported on the Dell Streak coming to the United States in July 2010, unlocked, with a price tag of $500. You'll be able to buy the Dell Streak directly from Dell.com, although Dell executive Ron Garriques is quoted as saying their preferred model is to sell the device to consumers through wireless carriers. Specs we've seen indicate it will run on the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that powers the Google Nexus One and HTC Droid Incredible, boast a 5" screen, and have a 5 Megapixel rear-facing camera.

Skeptic hats on for this one, folks. The gents over at Phonedog are reporting that they have inside information on an upcoming HTC Android phone slated to hit AT&T, dubbed the Aria.

Details are sparse, but the phone will supposedly be running HTC’s SenseUI skin and be powered by Android 2.1 which is a bit of a bummer, though HTC has previously announced that all phones launched this year should receive an update to 2.2, so that’s promising.

One of Dell’s worst kept secrets, the Dell Streak, has finally been officially unveiled by Dell. The phone/tablet hybrid is slated to launch in early June and will be available exclusively on the O2 mobile carrier in the UK.

I haven’t had the chance to play with one yet, but the Dell Streak seems like it will be a bit of an awkward phone, primarily due to its massive screen. With a 5 inch screen the phone attempts to fill in the gap between full blown tablets and cellphones…a gap that I’m not sure necessarily needed to be filled.

The mad scientists over at the iPhone Dev-Team have done it again! Planetbeing, the dev who brought us the Youtube video of the original iPhone running Android, has just posted another, showing off Android running on Apple’s iPhone 3G.

Since the project is still in development, not everything is working at this point, most notably audio, but it seems like the majority of the features are intact, including multi-touch, WiFi, and the baseband, which is required for the call and text messaging functions.
