Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime) Hits Verizon Computers, It's 4G

Another hour, another sign ICS and the Nexus Prime are coming.

Did I say Nexus Prime? I meant Galaxy Nexus. That's pretty much official now. Verizon's Device Management system is giving up the goods this time, listing the Galaxy Nexus (I have to get used to that) in its database.

galaxy-nexus-device

Also official is the 4G LTE modem, as if Verizon would let anything go out the door without one. Unfortunately. like most company programs, this database looks old and redundant, so it doesn't look like there's much more information to glean from this screenshot. It's not a world phone, if you were somehow expecting that, but that's all there is to see.

Motorola Photon 4G OTA Update Rolling Out Now, Brings Google Talk With Video Support, Bug Fixes

A minor OTA update is currently rolling out to the Motorola Photon 4G that brings a few bug fixes and one notable feature: Google Talk with Video support. Other than that, it's a pretty bland update:

  • Lapdock support
  • Enhancements to image appearance when pictures are taken in panorama mode
  • Forwarded messages are properly identified as being forwarded
  • Improved audio quality with car speakers when connected to a car charger and audio
  • Introduction of international roaming 3G UMTS hotspot functionality for a single Wi-Fi enabled

While this update doesn't bring a whole slew of game-changing features, I'm sure it's still a welcome one for Photon owners.

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. Still, there may be some sort of target audience for this device -- tweeners, perhaps? Smartphone newcomers? Honestly, I'm not sure that this phone is a good idea for anyone, let along smartphone first-timers.

Not one hundred dollars, not ten dollars, not one dollar, one cent. That's right, the LTE-packing Droid Bionic can be yours for a penny from Amazon Wireless if you're a switcher. Current Verizon customers have to pay the full $220. The usual hooks apply, it's a penny only on a 2 year contract.

Amazon is even throwing in free shipping. What more do you want? If you are still on the fence, check out our review of the Bionic here. We have no idea how long this will last, so read quickly.

Those of you holding out for the Galaxy Nexus (Prime), stay strong.

[Review] The T-Mobile Galaxy S II: Beauty Is Only Skin Deep, But The Bloatware Goes On Forever

Finally it's T-Mobile's turn to take a swing at the Samsung Galaxy S II, almost six months after the rest of the world. No adjective soup for this variant; its official name is, plainly, the "T-Mobile Galaxy S II." Formerly known as the "Hercules," this is the misfit in the GSII family. In its heart pumps a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, instead of the normal Samsung Exynos. So it's not just a carbon copy of all those other GSIIs. My initial impressions were posted a few days ago, and since then I've had some time to see if this thing was really worth the wait.

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. To implement this service, T-Mobile offers the ability to turn on a sort of Bobsled toolbar (in the form of a Facebook app) - a tab that displays in your browser (meaning you see it almost all the time) and slides along web pages, allowing for quick access to calling options.

Samsung DoubleTime

Samsung's DoubleTime is no doubt a lower-end Android phone, putting an emphasis on its compact, portable design and full flip keyboard, and running Android 2.2 (which seems a bit odd considering the impending release of Ice Cream Sandwich, which will make Froyo 2 steps behind current technology).
