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.

Samsung Stratosphere Officially Launches On Verizon On October 13th For $149

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.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Waiting For The Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime To Upgrade Your Phone?

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).

[Deal Alert] Lenovo IdeaPad K1 On Sale At Best Buy For Only $329.99 ($120 Off Its Regular Price)

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).

ideapadk1

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.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II Initial Impressions

The FedEx man brought me a lovely little gift yesterday: The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II. This is the last stateside arrival of the Galaxy S II family. The review will take a bit to get out the door, so until then I figured I'd whet your appetite with some initial impressions.

First of all, this thing is big. Really big. I have to say though, I love the design of it.

Case Review: OtterBox Commuter For The DROID BIONIC - If You Truly Need A Case, Buy This One

I hate phone cases. When I bought my Nexus One back in March of 2010, the first thing I did with my very first smartphone was head over to Amazon and start searching for a cool and convenient way to protect it. So I bought some leather ordeal with a flip cover and all sorts of gimmickry, and I hated it. I used it for 2 days, and since then, it has occupied my box of unwanted electronics and related accessories.

[Updated] Samsung And Google Postpone Nexus Prime And Ice Cream Sandwich Announcements

We've been hearing about the Nexus Prime for months now, but things have really been heating up in the past week or so: first, Samsung released an official teaser trailer about the event and gave us a glimpse of the device's side profile. And yesterday, we had two conflicting sets of specs "leak out" (though obviously neither was confirmed). Finally, the official AndroidDevelopers YouTube account put up a video called "Android ICS Launch," set to stream during the Samsung Unpacked event in which the Prime and ICS were set to be revealed.

Looks Like There's Another Facebook Phone On The Horizon - The FCC Meets Motorola's EX225 and EX226

It looks like Motorola has a Facebook feature phone up its sleeve - the Motorola EX225 is set to join ranks with the HTC Status as a socially-focused phone with a dedicated Facebook key. A device almost exactly like the EX225 - sans the Facebook integration - also made an appearance at the FCC, affectionately named EX226.

Tests confirm that both devices are headed for AT&T with 3G capability, though the EX226 only supports AT&T's 850MHz spectrum and lacks compatibility with 802.11n.
