Nope, Verizon still hasn't changed its mind about skipping the Galaxy S II, but if BGR's latest exclusive proves to be true, Android fans on Big Red needn't be disappointed. Indeed, the carrier is said to be launching the Samsung DROID Prime - likely a rebranded version of the long-rumored Nexus Prime - as early as this October.

The DROID Prime's primary claim to fame will, of course, be its operating system: BGR says it'll be the first Ice Cream Sandwich device on the market.

Following the release of the Thrive in July, Toshiba is now rumored to be working on a tablet that could compete with Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 by coupling a sleek, thin design with a large screen and Android Honeycomb while adding a handful of useful ports that the Tab 10.1 lacks.

Earlier today, an Italian tech blog Notebook Italia brought to light some renders of the alleged tablet killer (their words, not ours) that show a very attractive device featuring a profile as sleek as the Galaxy Tab, but with a microUSB port, microHDMI port, and a microSD slot, along with an interesting grooved frame and a slim black bezel around the 10.1" screen.

Since an anonymous NenaMark revealed the HTC Vigor's alleged specs, the Android community has been waiting to hear more about the powerhouse supposedly heading for Verizon. Yesterday, some new info about the Vigor came in the form of blurrycam photos posted by the folks over at Droid-Life.

For those who may have forgotten, here are the Vigor's rumored specs:

  • 1280x720 display
  • Qualcomm Adreno GPU
  • 1.5GHz processor
  • Android 2.3.4
  • 4G LTE Capability

No doubt the Vigor is looking like a powerful and sleek device, one which we're eagerly waiting to learn more about.

Wow, this just might be the best deal we've posted in a while. Unfortunately, we're not 100% certain on the price, because the images we were tipped to don't exactly specify one. Still, based on the $300 mark we've been hearing, and Droid-forums' claim that their source says that's the number, we're starting to feel pretty confident in that figure.

If you look on the left hand side of that image, in the red area, you can see the text "Accessories Bonus Pack / $159.97 Retail Value / Includes Standard Dock / Vehicle Navigator Dock / Battery Dock and / Extra Battery." That's a lot of kit to bundle with a phone for just $300 on a new 2-year agreement!

After months of anticipation, we are now finally on the verge of the Galaxy S II launch in the U.S. Yesterday's events now have us strongly convinced that the first variant of the Galaxy S II, most likely on Sprint (as the recently approved by the FCC Epic Touch 4G, if you remember), will be launching Friday, September 9th, 2011.

Clue #1

First, today we received a tip from a trusted source inside Sprint, putting the 9/9/11 date on the radar with a very high probability.

Well, the Galaxy S II rumors are really starting to heat up stateside. Earlier today, BGR let loose a tip that Sprint may be getting its own Galaxy S II-based handset as early as next month (September), and that it will be dubbed the 'Epic Touch 4G.' This obviously implies that the device will not share the physical QWERTY keyboard of its etymological ancestor, the Epic 4G.

The phone will also feature Sprint's WiMAX 4G - which raises another big question: just how should Sprint subscribers reconcile the carrier's planned adoption of LTE with yet another WiMAX handset on the way?

The Motorola Defy is no joke: it's built to withstand being dropped, submerged in water, and is dust/scratch proof. According to This is my next, the next version of the Defy - subtly called the Defy+ - could be right around the corner and coming to an AT&T store near you.

The word on the street is that the second iteration of this durable handset is sporting 850 / 1900 / 2100 HSPA radios (hence the AT&T assumption) and is said to rock a 1GHz OMAP 3620 processor in place of the OMAP 3610 in the current version, as well as Android 2.3.3 right out of the box.

Here's an interesting tidbit of information for the XOOM owners out there: there may be a system update heading your way within the next few days that bumps you up to Android 3.2. Details are pretty scarce right now, but here's what we can tell you: in the comments of AOSP issue number 16992 - which is in regards to the lack of Exchange support post-3.1 update on the XOOM - one line stands out.

The amount of leaked information about the Droid Bionic that we're seeing is growing at a rapid pace now - even further proving that a release is drawing near. Today's find, courtesy of This is my next, is a leaked Best Buy teaser that touts the Bionic as an "all-powerful, unstoppable machine" - clearly displaying that Motorola is coming out of the gate with guns blazing to promote Verizon's first dual-core LTE phone.

We're as skeptical of oddly-specific rumors as the next blog, but given the source, we feel it'd be negligent of us not to pass on this information to you. A couple weeks back, we reported on a BGR-exclusive story that leaked information about the next Google Nexus Android phone.

Now, "Prime" is rumored to be the device codename being tossed around at the Googleplex for the upcoming handset, but BGR's exclusive source has reason to believe that name will make it to end consumers.
