CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Drop For Sony Xperia Arc And Neo

CyanogenMod (CM) has long been the modding community's custom ROM of choice, and for good reason: it takes the goodness that is basic Android (AOSP) and adds a hearty dose of all-around improvement. The list of devices supported by CM is quite a long and impressive one (truth be told, they do a better job of supporting devices than the manufacturers do), and last night, cutting-edge nightly CM9 releases dropped for the Sony Xperia Arc (Anzu) and Xperia Neo (Hallon).

[Leaked Photos] Sprint's HTC EVO One Shows Off Its 4.7" Screen, Red Kickstand, And Could It Be... A Camera Button?

The famous red-and-black accents and the kickstand seem to live on in the HTC EVO One (or so we think it'll be called), according to these photos of Sprint's upcoming One X variant. The device, which looks to be a test unit, was obtained by one of DroidLife's readers, who then forwarded the snaps on for all of us to enjoy. You are enjoying them, aren't you?

Now, don't be too hasty and judgmental, take your time to examine these.

[Leak] Either Samsung Or AT&T Can't Keep A Secret: Ice Cream Sandwich For The Galaxy Note Leaks This Time

As the old saying goes, "When it rains, it leaks ICS builds for a whole lot of Samsung devices on AT&T's network in a short time frame." At least that's how I learned the saying as a boy. While it didn't make sense then, now that Android 4.0.3 has been leaked for the Galaxy Note, rounding out the Samsung/AT&T trifecta of flagship devices, it all makes sense.

As with the previous leaks, also courtesy of RootzWiki, this build flashed its build.prop badge at the door to let us know it's the real deal:

ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/SGH-I717/SGH-I717:4.0.3/IML74K/144:user/release-keys

Indeed, it looks like Note users can now join the Samsung family at the dessert table.

Google Releases Full Flashable OS Images For Nexus S i9020A (sojua 4.0.4 IMM76D), Sprint Nexus S 4G D720 (sojus 2.3.7 GWK74), Korean Nexus S M200 (sojuk 2.3.6 GRK39F)

Last week, JBQ from Google released full flashable images of the newly baked Android 4.0.4 (IMM76D) for a few devices - the GSM Galaxy Nexus i9250 yakju and the Nexus S i9020T (soju). The Nexus S release specifically wasn't compatible with the AT&T version (i9020A sojua), but an image for i9020A was promised at a later date. Additionally, builds for the Nexus S 4G on Sprint and other variants as well as the Verizion Galaxy Nexus were to follow.

LG Viper On Sprint Available For Pre-Order On April 12th For $99 With Two-Year Agreement

Looks like Sprint's first LTE handset, the LG Viper, will be available for pre-order from Sprint beginning on April 12th for a reasonable $99 after $50 mail-in-rebate, and will be available in all channels "later this month."

LG-X3

The Viper was originally announced alongside the Galaxy Nexus earlier this year at CES as one of Sprint's premier LTE devices and is packing some reasonable specs for the price:

  • 4-Inch 480x800 display
  • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front-facing camera
  • 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • NFC and Google Wallet
  • Android 2.3 (will likely be updated to Android 4.0)

Last we heard, the Viper was said to be released on April 15th, but that seems unlikely with pre-orders beginning on April 12th.

[Rumor Analysis] Is This Leaked "Press Photo" Sprint's HTC EVO One?

When it comes to rumors, the day before the press conference announcing a device often turns out to be the most reliable. Just such a rumor has landed today, in the form of a purported "press photo" of Sprint's EVO One (at least, that's the rumored name).

Now, I don't want to be a Debbie-downer here, but there are a few things that make this "press photo" look like less than the real McCoy (though I'm not outright calling it a fake - so read on).

Things are really starting to heat up for the arrival of Sprint's Galaxy Nexus on both the 'net and in Sprint stores; in fact, rumor has it that employee training started today. Graciously, one of those employees happened to send a few slides over to Android Life that confirms almost everything we want to know about the device, excluding one small detail: the release date.

Ever since Sprint announced the GNex at CES this year, there have been rumors that it will have a 1.5GHz processor.

Motorola Announces RAZR MAXX Hitting Europe And Middle East In May

By most accounts, the Motorola DROID RAZR is an excellent phone, though battery life is questionable. Which is exactly what makes the RAZR MAXX such a great phone: at 9mm, it's still thin, but packs a battery with 85% more capacity (1780 vs 3300mAh). At the moment, the RAZR MAXX isn't sold in Europe and Middle East, but the company has just announced that will change sometime in May.

RAZR MAXX_Dyn_L_Back_EMARA Spider_Front_1, 8/11/11, 11:29 AM,  8C, 4274x2400 (768+2896), 100%, Bent 6 Adjuste,  1/20 s, R42.8, G30.0, B59.6
 RAZR MAXX_Dyn_L_EMARA

A quick refresher of the specs:

  • Android 2.3.6 (Android 4.0 update reportedly coming tomorrow)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card in the box (32GB of storage total)
  • 4.3" Super AMOLED qHD display
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • 8.99mm thin, 4.5oz

No word on what specific day it will go on sale, but we're sure the company will release some details closer to then.

Sprint plans to re-push Gingerbread to the Optimus S starting just two days from now, on April 4th.
