Everyone's favorite Twitter tipster has just dropped some interesting (and disappointing) images on us. For those of you hoping for bezel-free display on a Motorola phone, you may be in for a bit of a wait if this is all Motorola is planning on releasing today. The image shows us two Verizon-bound Motorola devices and, well... they look about the same as most other Motorola devices. The two devices appear to be images of the very-very-soon-to-be-announced RAZR M and RAZR HD.
Well, look what we have here. It appears an observant shopper got in touch with Android Central this morning with a link to a piece of evidence that is so random it must be real.
A British online phone store called phones4u (shudder) put up some product images for its Xperia T page. What it didn't notice, apparently, was that at least one of the images Sony sent along was for the wrong phone.
It looks like the recently-rumored LG Intuition for Verizon could be coming to fruition within the next week. According to some leaked shots from Verizon's equipment guide, the overly-large device should hit Big Red's website on September 6th, with retail availability from the 10th.
For those who may be unaware, the Intuition is Verizon's version of the oddly proportioned LG Optimus Vu. Featuring a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, Android 4.0.x, and 4:3 5" 1024x768 display, the Intuition is the device designed for folks with big and hands and even bigger heads.
While the name Pantech may not bring about thoughts of high-end superphones right now, it looks like the company may be about to change that with an upcoming P9090 "Magnus." This mysterious device first hit the FCC back at the beginning of August sporting AT&T bands, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0, but now a couple of benchmarks have made their way to Righware, giving us a closer look at what the device's potential innards.
While the original Stratosphere is in line to get a kinda-sorta ICS-esque update, it looks like its successor is already in the pipeline for VZW. Unoriginally dubbed the Stratosphere 2, the device carries the same slide-out QWERTY and 4" Super AMOLED display as its predecessor; other than that, details are pretty non-existent. We probably wouldn't be too off base to assume it'll have some sort of dual-core processor and around 1GB of RAM, but past that, it's hard to say.
After catching sight of Jelly Bean for Samsung's Galaxy SIII on video, then seeing a leaked build for the i9300 pop up on XDA, it looks like T-Mobile's variant of Sammy's latest powerhouse has its own leaked Jelly Bean goodness.
Earlier today, XDA user LuffarJoh posted up what seems to be an early (though enticing) OTA file for T-Mobile's Galaxy SIII (aka T999) that will bring your device up to 4.1.1.
Yesterday, we saw a leaked image of an HTC phone said to be internally called the "Proto." Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, it was brought to our attention that this isn't a new device at all; it's a slightly more powerful version of the Desire V that's already been released in international markets.

The only difference between the two? The Proto is said to sport a 1GHz dual-core processor, whereas the Desire V has a 1GHz single-core chip.
It looks like another one of HTC's handsets (besides the Thunderbolt) has gotten a Sense-ified Ice Cream Sandwich ROM of its own – today, XDA user nitsuj17 posted a ROM for the Droid Incredible 2 (aka vivow) allegedly based on another leaked RUU from HTC. Readers may remember the Incredible 2 as being among devices officially slated by HTC to receive Ice Cream Sandwich "by the end of August," so this leak's timing isn't too hard to figure out.
Since hearing earlier this month that HTC's Desire S, Thunderbolt, and other select handsets would receive ICS updates "by the end of August," we have heard nary a peep from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Today though, thanks to an alleged leaked RUU, we have a stock Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 build for the Thunderbolt (aka Mecha).
According to Administrator's post at TeamBAMF's forums, the ROM, based on a leaked RUU (and carrying build number 7.00.605.2), is said to be fully functional and fully stock, but it's worth noting that the ROM is deodexed and rooted, meaning those wishing to retain root are in luck, but if you – for one reason or another – want a strictly stock, non-rooted experience, you'll have to wait.
Okay, so maybe David's not looking forward to a point-and-shoot running Gingerbread, but someone probably is! Well, Ashton Q. Someone, here are some photos that should whet your appetite. Nikon Rumors is reporting the first alleged leaked images of the Coolpix S800c, an Android-powered camera.
Oddly, the center image above does not match the other two. It's unclear if this means there will be a whole line of Android cameras (unlikely), if a single image of a different camera got mixed in (probably), or if the whole thing is fake (possible).
