HTC-Flyer-3-views-550x427

The HTC bootloader unlock portal has been updated yet again, this time bringing the company's first tablet, the Flyer, to the mix. It appears that basically all versions that carry the Flyer name are supported, so if an unlock for the View 4G is what you're after, you'll have to keep playing the waiting game for a while longer.

Like with previous devices that made their way to the portal, the process seems simple and intuitive -- but keep in mind that it effectively voids your warranty if you choose to use this "legit" method. 

So, if you're ready to see what all the fuss is about, head over to HTCdev to get started.

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

When Samsung officially unveiled the US variants of the Galaxy S II, the spec sheet for T-Mobile's variant was oddly absent from the show. After that, we started hearing that it would not be sporting the same Exynos processor of its AT&T and Sprint siblings, but rather a chip from a "different manufacturer," with no word as to who that manufacturer could be.

Today, though, one Twitter-er had enough with the guesswork and decided to get an answer directly from the source: @GalaxySsupport, the official support account for all US Galaxy S devices.

R2D2-Droid-Phone

Well, what do you know? Looks like Moto hasn't forgotten about the R2-D2 variant of the Droid 2 after all. We've seen the Gingerbread update come and go for the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global, and now it's time for our little robot themed friend to join the party.

The update brings all of the same features and enhancements of the original Droid 2, and should be hitting devices starting today.

The Samsung Galaxy S II (SGSII) has been one of the most highly anticipated devices in recent memory - perhaps second only to the annual new iPhone. There are two very good reasons for this: first, the original Galaxy S devices were hailed as some of the best on the market. Second - and more importantly - from its start as an on-paper proof, to its run on the trade show circuit, through its international release, the Galaxy S II been hailed as one of (if not the) best phone on the market.

Following its recent announcement of the "Live With Walkman" Android smartphone, Sony has today officially introduced the Walkman Z Series (Japanese press release) of personal media players.

These Android 2.3 devices will weigh approximately 156g and will feature the following specs:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core CPU
  • 4.3 TFT color LCD, WVGA (480 × 800)
  • 512MB RAM
  • Bluetooth
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • WEP/WPA/WPA2 Encryption
  • GPS
  • E-Compass
  • G-Sensor
  • FM Radio
  • Built-in mono speaker (this is an interesting choice considering this device is billed as a "Walkman" phone)
  • HDMI output
  • DLNA

As these devices are billed as "Walkman" PMPs the lack of a camera is not entirely surprising.

If you're one of a handful of people who have been wondering whether or not the new Droid Bionic has FM Radio capabilities, the folks at Android Central forums have confirmed that it does, and that the radio APK from the Droid 3 will let you listen whenever you want. It definitely works on our review unit:

The only thing required for the APK to work is a set of headphone plugged into the phone to act as an antenna.

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

It's as if Samsung is looking straight into the heart of America with its newest ad for the Galaxy S II, entitled "The Way We're Wired." The ad hits the soft spot in all of us with its chill-inducing analogies of how we all want to be the best, highlighting philanthropists like Martin Luther King, Jr. and superheros like Batman. Have a look:

Kudos, Sammy. I love it.

Everyone's favorite stock AOSP ROM, CyanogenMod, has officially made its way to the HTC Evo 3D and Sensation. This is the first build to show up for either device, but according to the respective XDA threads, is stable enough for everyday use.

It's also worth noting that you won't be able to flash this if you used HTC's unlock tool, as it doesn't provide S-OFF, so flashing a custom kernel (which is required with CM) is out of the question.

The DROID BIONIC has probably been the single most anticipated Android smartphone in the US. Since its unveiling at CES, subsequent total re-design, and sort-of-delayed release, it has been a long and winding road for Motorola's newest flagship handset. Verizon's massive marketing arm hasn't failed to promote this thing, either - walk into any Verizon store and you'll see employees garbed in BIONIC t-shirts, armed with BIONIC accessory display boxes and a tailor-made marketing spiel, ready to meet you with more LTE and dual-core madness than you can shake a stick at.
