UK mobile carrier Three just announced that one of the most anticipated handsets of the year, the dual-core Galaxy S II, is now available for purchase.
The Galaxy S II is one of the speediest and slimmest Android handsets on the Market today with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, measuring only 8.5mm thick and shipping with Android 2.3 "Gingerbread." It comes with a beautiful 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display and sports 2 cameras: 8MP 1080P HD in the back and 2MP in the front. Read More
When I think of Sprint, the first thought that comes to mind is CEO Dan Hesse standing on a pier talking about being truly unlimited. I'm sure that he really does like the idea of being truly unlimited... but only when phones are concerned. You see, Sprint is reportedly going to take a different stance when it comes to data connection cards and embedded devices, such as tablets and netbooks. Read More
Since the day it was released, the DROID Incredible 2 has been hard to get ahold of, especially if you prefer to do all of your business with Amazon Wireless. Well, I'm happy to tell you that it has dropped its "backordered" status, is in stock, and available at a pretty incredible price (no pun intended). You can grab this second-gen monster for the low price of $100 with a new two-year agreement, which is 50% off the price that you will pay at Verizon. Read More
A couple of weeks ago we told you how to get the G2x for $50 from CellHub (it jumped up to $100 shortly after we posted the article). If you still want to score a G2x for less than $100, but don't want to order from a vendor that you've never heard of, then you're in luck. Today only, RadioShack.com is offering the G2x for $99 with any qualifying contract. Read More
What's this that I have stumbled across this morning? It's none other than some pictures and video footage from This Is My Next of the T-Mobile LG G2x running Gingerbread! No, not a rooted, AOSP version of Gingerbread - it looks to be an official build.
Shortly after the launch of the G2x, T-Mobile said that it would be getting Gingerbread "soon". Of course, we all took that with a grain of salt because, let's be honest here, carriers aren't really the most reliable when it comes to updating their phones. Read More
Neither z4root nor SuperOneClick is currently working on the Charge (though I'm sure someone will come up with a one-click method soon enough), but guess what - Gingerbreak sure does. Follow these instructions, and you should have root and full /system unlock on your Droid Charge in a few minutes. Credit goes to the Exploid Crew and unnamed testers.
No custom recovery, such as ClockworkMod or RA, is available yet, but it is surely going to arrive very soon. Read More
Update: I know that most of you have not yet received the update, and now we know why. According to its Twitter page, Motorola has said that it would be "rolling out in phases", so hopefully you'll start to see some update action soon.
Well, what do you know? It looks like one update wasn't enough for AT&T today - there are now two OTA updates available for the Motorola Atrix 4G, the second of which brings some long-awaited features. Read More
I awoke this morning to the UPS delivery guy dropping off a package at my house; lo and behold, it was a DROID Incredible 2 (Dinc2) review unit. As an EVO owner, I'm fairly familiar with what has fast become HTC's modus operandi - high quality, good price, and higher-end specs. With that in mind, I was looking forward to my time with the Dinc2, and tore into the box immediately (I didn't even put a shirt on first... Read More
It's no secret that the acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T is largely unpopular in the Android community. T-Mobile was the first carrier to offer an Android phone and has been very supportive of the development community as of late. It would be a real shame to let an Android-friendly carrier fall under the control of a company that has the absolute worst track record in regards to Android devices, and mobile service in general.

A few days ago I posted about my experience with the Google Voice integration with Sprint and outlined exactly how I did it. In the comments section, you guys responded with a lot of good thoughts and, in some cases, some serious bugs and questions. I have done a little bit of research, some testing, and some drinking (just kidding. Kind of), and I have some answers and responses for you upstanding, early-adopting citizens. Read More
