Finally it's T-Mobile's turn to take a swing at the Samsung Galaxy S II, almost six months after the rest of the world. No adjective soup for this variant; its official name is, plainly, the "T-Mobile Galaxy S II." Formerly known as the "Hercules," this is the misfit in the GSII family. In its heart pumps a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, instead of the normal Samsung Exynos. So it's not just a carbon copy of all those other GSIIs.

What do you do if you're a known patent troll and a major company announces a new device that is sure to sell millions of units? Try to sue the heck out of them, of course. That's exactly what's going on with Amazon's upcoming Kindle Fire, the still-unreleased tablet from the online retail giant.

The story goes a little something like this: Amazon announces the Fire for an ultra-affordable price. Everyone is happy and wants this new device, so pre-orders are through the roof.

The folks over at the always impartial, numerically obsessed hardware review and benchmarking site Anandtech have gotten their hands on some results comparing the iPhone 4S to a slew of Android devices in browser and GPU performance. The results are, well, interesting. Take a look at these graphics comparing browser JavaScript performance:

The closest competitor to Apple's iPhone 4S? The testers decided to make the Galaxy Tab 8.9 the Android Honeycomb representative, and even with its aging Tegra 2 chipset the Tab pretty much matched Apple's iPhone 4S inch for inch.

AT&T has just given customers a handful of devices to look forward to, announcing earlier this evening the addition of five new Android devices to their fall lineup. The new line is largely populated by Android devices aimed at budget-conscious users, but those looking for higher-end devices will have plenty of options as well.

Motorola Atrix 2

First up is the Motorola Atrix 2. Following up on the original Atrix, it's compatible with a special 'Lapdock' to increase productivity.

Hot on the heels of the leaked media files, we now have yet another leak, also courtesy of P3Droid, this time of the 12 wallpapers found in Ice Cream Sandwich. As someone put it on reddit: "I feel like whoever is leaking these is like some kind of psychopath giving us parts of his victim, piece by piece." That sounds pretty accurate, doesn't it?

Instructions

You can download an app P3 put together (registration required) and use it to install these wallpapers, or if you want to explore by yourself:

SlashGear reports that Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless will be holding a joint press event on Tuesday, October 18 at noon.

We do not have any additional information at this time, but in the past few weeks we have reported on a number of leaks about potential Motorola devices, and the "next big innovation" could be any one of these. A big clue is the event title itself "Faster. Thinner. Smarter.

stratosphere

Early rumours indicated that the Samsung Stratosphere would be released in September, and there were even leaked press shots of the device. However, here we are in October, and Verizon has just now taken the wraps off of the Stratosphere.

Billed as the "first 4G LTE smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard," the Samsung Stratosphere packs a hefty package, including:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor
  • 4-inch (800x480) WVGA Super AMOLED display
  • 4G LTE
  • 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB on-board memory
  • 4GB pre-installed microSD card (up to 32GB supported)
  • 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera (720p HD playback and 480p recording)
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n

The Stratosphere is clearly targeted towards the business user as alongside the QWERTY keyboard, the device will also have "enhanced B2B-enabled connectivity services from Cisco, the most comprehensive mobile implementation of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) and support for secure remote device management from Sybase Afaria." Additionally, the device will support "Samsung’s Enterprise Platform enhancements such as VPN, encryption and Mobile Device Management (MDM)." This is a powerful phone that looks to attack RIM's enterprise stronghold and take-away market share from the BlackBerry by offering support for features corporate users find essential.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will The Amazon Kindle Fire Light Up The Tablet World?

The next Nexus device, at least unofficially dubbed the Prime, has been very highly anticipated, especially as the scheduled reveal (originally October 11th) neared. Unfortunately, the announcement has been postponed due to the passing of Steve Jobs, and is now reportedly scheduled for October 27.

The Prime is rumored to pack some serious power, packing anything from a 1.2 - 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, a high-end 5MP-8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, a fairly large (4.3" - 4.65") screen packing a 1280x720 resolution, and perhaps most notably, will usher in the next iteration of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

The IdeaPad K1 from Lenovo, released earlier this year, is bursting with features and ports, but reviews suggest that it is perhaps not the best Android tablet available on the market today.  Nevertheless, it is a powerful little beast running Honeycomb and for the next two days (9 to 10 October) Best Buy is offering this device for only $329.99, that's $120 discount of the regular price ($449.99).

In case you have forgotten, the K1 runs on Android 3.1 and has the following specs:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 processor
  • 10.1" (1280x800) display
  • Android 3.1
  • 32GB of storage
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5 MP rear camera, 2MP front cameras
  • Built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Mini HDMI output
  • microSD card slot

This deal probably won't appeal to Christy, who won an IdeaPad K1 in our banner design contest, but for the rest of you interested in Lenovo's Android offering, pick one up from BB by 10 October 2011.
