Well, this is pretty exciting. Two ROM developers by the names of Maja and udK over at (where else?) XDA-Devs have ported FroYo to the Desire, and enabled 720p video recording – pretty neat stuff. The ROM (v1.0) isn’t quite ready for mass consumption yet – it’s still in testing (v0.3 is available for now, though). Still, it’s definitely something to look forward to, and we’ll be sure to update everyone once the FroYo/720p ROM is released.

Though Samsung has already promised the first Android “superphone” with a physical keyboard in the Samsung Epic 4G, some people may still be waiting on HTC – after all, they’ve produced some great keyboard touting Windows Mobile handsets, but as far as high powered Android handsets go, their selection has been a bit anemic. However, it appears that is about to change with some leaked shots and specs of the upcoming HTC Vision.

A few weeks ago, Amzer sent us some sample products to review for the EVO. They included two silicone cases (one red, one black), a Micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and 2 screen protectors (one mirror, one clear).

Amzer is owned by Moftware, parent company of numerous smaller, more specific companies. The company isn’t some dinky accessory maker – they estimate that they sold 250,000 accessories for the EVO alone in the first two weeks after the phones release.

This is an alpha release, meaning it is likely to be filled with bugs. Just like with any custom ROM, you are installing this at your own risk, and the developers are not responsible for any damage to your phones.

Tired of Nexus One and Droid users gloating their CyanogenMod 6 over you? Well, HTC Hero owners – worry no more. The Alpha version of CM6 (the same version available for said phones) has officially been released for the GSM Hero (this does not include the Sprint Hero).

It seems the question of whether Google will be staying in the business of designing flagship Android phones has been definitively answered, and by none other than the man in charge: Google CEO Eric Schmidt. While there has been speculation for some time that a Nexus Two may never happen, Eric Schmidt has effectively confirmed that this is the case…(emphasis ours)

Initially, Google felt that they needed to build a device to help Android along so they worked with HTC to create the Nexus One handset.

Droid-Life has a source, including pictures and a video, showing that the Droid Incredible will be getting an OTA update… sometime. They don’t have an ETA, but it shouldn’t be far off. The key new features it brings are 720p video recording, 3G mobile hotspot, and (most importantly of all), the usual “DROID” red eye bootup.

Pretty awesome that when Android phones get OTA updates, they tend to bring awesome new features.

Who Wants More Froyo? Yet Another Nexus One ROM Leak (FRF91)

Here we go again:

http://android.clients.google.com/packages/passion/signed-passion-FRF91-from-FRF85B.db99fdf1.zip (1MB)

You must have FRF85B installed to upgrade. Presumably, ANY Nexus One (AT&T or T-Mobile, etc) that has FRF85B can use this upgrade

See our post about FRF50 for instructions on doing a manual upgrade.

If You Don’t Know What To Do With Your Bricked EVO 4G, Take It To A Sprint Corporate Store

HTC and Sprint are working together to accommodate EVO 4G owners whose phones were bricked after this week’s initial update. Without adding very much detail, HTC stated that Sprint Corporate stores can be of service. You can find the closest store using this tool.

If You Don’t Know What To Do With Your Bricked EVO 4G, Take It To A Sprint Corporate Store

If you have already updated successfully and your phone boots up fine, you don't have to do anything. If you haven't applied the OTA update yet, you can now safely do so, as the bricking issue has been fixed.

Get The HTC EVO 4G From Sprint.com For $150 ($50 Off)

If you're in the market for a new phone or are looking to buy an EVO 4G specifically, the deal I just found on Fatwallet may be exactly what you needed.

The regular price of the phone at Sprint.com is $199 after a mail-in rebate, compared to places like Best Buy that will replace the mail-in rebate with an instant one. However, you can get an extra $50 off if you buy it from Sprint.

Earlier this morning we posted a hilarious video made by tinywatchproductions depicting an average iPhone user fanboy - the one who mindlessly gobbles up everything Steve and AT&T say and buys every iPhone just because it's an iPhone. Admit it - you know a few people like that.

Now in a comeback video, the same tinywatchproductions came up with a few things an iPhone user could counter with in a conversation with a mindless EVO 4G fan (do those exist?).
