When we posted on the work-around for enabling the Netflix app on unsupported devices, more than a few of you weren't thrilled to hear that the fix didn't work on the Thunderbolt. We knew a fix would come eventually, and now we're happy to report that the developer community has delivered; they've found a way to get the Netflix app working on the Thunderbolt. Unfortunately, there is a bit of bad news, too: it only works on devices that are rooted and running a Gingerbread ROM. Read More
That's right, folks - HTC's much-anticipated first Android tablet is up for grabs at Best Buy stores across the U.S. right now. You can pick one of the Wi-Fi only tablets up (note: no stylus included) for a mere $500. A stylus will costs you $80 (yikes), should you so desire one. But consider yourself warned - the Flyer doesn't support handwriting recognition at this point in time, though you could still presumably do all sorts of fun artsy things with it. Read More

HTC is continuing to release devices with signed locked bootloaders, as we found out today after taking a look at the latest HTC Sensation system dump. The upcoming HTC Sensation is one of the most powerful and desirable devices coming up, alongside the Galaxy S2, but while the latter's bootloader is unlocked, the one in the Sensation is protected via HTC's private key.
Unless we get really lucky, this means no custom kernels on the device (i.e. Read More
One awesome T-Mobile leak isn't good enough for you? Well then, you'll be interested to hear that the folks at This is my next have a second (albeit related) leak for Magenta customers - a roadmap detailing their device releases from now until September of 2011, as well as some glimpses of what we can expect beyond that. Without further ado, let's introduce the devices:
- HTC Sensation 4G, Samsung Exhibit 4G, and Samsung GT2: Admittedly, these won't come as much of a surprise, as their release has already been confirmed.
If you've been eyeballing the HTC EVO 3D in anticipation of a launch date, then you'll be glad to know that we're one step closer to achieving that goal. In a semi-unofficial manner, pre-orders for the 1.2GHz dual core, 4.3 inch beast have started at Radioshack - but don't expect to see anyone shouting from the rooftops to let you know about it. You see, while you can pre-order with a $50 deposit starting today, this is apparently a deal only for the informed crowd (such as yourselves), as it can only be honored if you specifically ask for it.

It looks like June 8th is going to be quite a day around T-Mobile, because three new Android devices should be hitting the shelves. Among the three devices is the HTC Sensation - the highly anticipated 4.3 inch beast that rocks Sense 3.0. Not to distract from the others that are dropping at the same time, though, here is a spec-sheet rundown of each.
As the lowest-end of the three devices, the GT2 is a sequel to the Samsung Gravity T, but this time it's packing Android under the hood. Read More
The crew over at 911sniper are all over some HTC leaks today, aren't they? Here's another one for you - this time it's Gingerbread for the HTC EVO Shift 4G. Hopefully all of you that are holding an EVO Shift in your hand right now will get some Gingerbread lovin' shortly after devs get a hold of this.
The download seems to be moving at a snail's pace for us, so we're working on uploading this to our mirror right now. Read More
The exciting conclusion of our three-part HTC-leak-o-rama comes in the form of a yet-to-be-announced HTC tablet known as the "Puccini." Sounds like an Italian dish (Note: actually, Puccini was a famous Italian composer, so take what you will from the codename). Anyway, this thing's packing, here's what we know:
- WXGA display (800x1280) - we're thinking 9-10" on that basis
- MSM8660 dual-core processor (same chipset we just saw in the leaked HTC Lead)
- Android Honeycomb 3.0.1
- AT&T LTE support
As an AT&T customer myself, between the HTC Lead and this guy, I'm pretty juiced. Read More
