The crafty folks over at Droid Dog have just unearthed another secret buried deep in the G2's source code: a Google Voice widget.
They claim that it looks a lot like this:
and displays the amount of money in your Google Voice account, a compose message button, settings for Voice, a button for quick access to your inbox, and a button to turn Voice off.
Droid Dog is also reporting that the G2 will come with "just about every Google app available for Android," right out of the box. Read More
Based on a tweet by Cyanogen, the G2 isn't going to be sporting another rehash of the Snapdragon family of chipsets that has come to dominate HTC devices for the past 6 months.
You may remember back in November of 2009 (or maybe not, I didn't) that Qualcomm demoed an updated family of chipsets for mobile multimedia devices. The name of that chipset is the remarkably catchy MSM7X30 (really has a ring to it, no?), and it's bringing a little more to the table than its predecessors. Read More
Sure, we already know exactly what the G2 looks like, but unfortunately, we still have no idea what the specs will be or when the device is launching.
Well, with this latest round of rumors, you can cross the latter item off the list of mysteries related to the world's first HSPA+ phone, for TmoNews has just been told by one of their "trusty ninjas" that T-Mobile's got a September 29 launch date in store. Read More
Friday's round of blurrycam shots of T-Mobile's upcoming G2 not enough for you? Then you'll appreciate this story.
As you can see from the image above, the G2's slider mechanism will lift the top part of the device upwards before moving it out so as to provide full access to the physical QWERTY keyboard beneath it.
Speaking of the keyboard, it looks amazing (even if the above picture only displays part of it). Read More
Just like the title says: some real, live shots of the T-Mobile G2 out in the real world have landed in Engadget’s lap. Based on the photos, it looks like the earlier leaked renders were pretty accurate, albeit the colors were off. It’s not a bad looking piece of kit, though it is does look a bit utilitarian. In fact, it looks like what I’d imagine the Nexus Two to look like. Read More
It seems appropriate since the G1, the phone that kicked off the Android revolution, was killed off a few weeks ago, and since T-Mobile is about to introduce their first HSPA+ capable device, that they would call this device the G2. Well, after countless rumors about a G2 (starting a few hours after the G1's launch), the device has finally been announced on T-Mobile's HSPA+ site.
That's right, the G2 is official, will be the first phone to utilize T-Mobile's 4G-like HSPA+ network, and will have its specs handed out to the media and a select group of people "over the coming weeks." These are exciting times ahead of us, folks, so stay tuned to Android Police for lots more coverage on the G2 and other upcoming Android devices. Read More
T-Mobile certainly dropped a big hint when the word “Vanguard,” believed to be the codename for the HTC Vision, was discovered all over the source code of their HSPA+ phone teaser page. But, according to a leak from Android Central, this phone might not be the slider we’ve seen before – it could be the next model in the myTouch line.
Called the myTouch 3G HD, the phone appears to have the same button layout as the myTouch 3G Slide, including the Genius Button and trackpad. Read More
Details are scarce on this one, but a new shot of the HTC Vision has been leaked. With the shot came a few new details: it’s likely headed for T-Mobile (either in the US, overseas, or both), and will be named the G1 Blaze.
As we’ve stated before, the device packs what has quickly become standard fare for high-end phones:
- 1 GHz CPU
- 3.7” Screen
- Eclair (Android 2.1) + Sense
- HSPA+ (rumored)
- Launching in September
- Slide-out four row QWERTY keyboard
If it’s true that this phone is going to be packing HSPA+, it could be a big winner – so far, T-Mobile has no phones that support it, and it’s pretty speedy. Read More
A few days ago, we found a couple of blurrycam pictures of the HTC Vision. Yesterday, a blurrycam shot of T-Mobile’s roadmap leaked, and it shows an HTC Vanguard releasing on September 9. Now, Engadget has word that the HTC Vision is launching in September – the same time the HTC Vanguard is shown launching on T-Mob’s roadmap. The Vision will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ phone. (As I’ve mentioned before, HSPA+ is pretty awesomely fast, and expanding like the wind.) The specs are rumored to include a 3.7” screen, slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1 with sense, and a 1 Ghz processor. Read More
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. Read More
