More Nexus Prime Info Leaks: 'Official' Name, Screen Size, Device Thickness, And Possible Launch Date

Rumors surrounding the next Nexus, internally known as the "Prime," are really starting to pour out now. Firstly, we saw a document that suggested a rather disappointing screen resolution, which fortunately, was later revealed to be nothing more than a placeholder. On top of that, Eric Schmidt outed the tentative release timeframe for Ice Cream Sandwich yesterday: October or November.

With all of this in mind, GSMarea has gotten ahold of some info from a "trusted source" on the Prime, and if true, will be the biggest payload we've seen yet.

Sprint Officially Announces Mid-Range Kyocera Milano, Priced At Just $50 On-Contract

Just in time for its September 9 release, Sprint has officially announced the mid-range Kyocera Milano. The specs can't match up to some of Sprint's heavy hitters like the EVO 3D and Epic 4G Touch, but it's certainly a step up from some cheap feature phones:

  • 3" display
  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Android 2.3
  • Sprint ID
  • 1490 mAH battery

It also includes an "Eco Mode," which appears to be custom software by Kyocera designed to help manage battery life - probably not much different from many apps in the Market that already do the same.

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, also known as the Playstation Phone, will be hitting AT&T's HSPA+ network on September 18th for a mere $50, finally allowing gamers rocking Ma Bell to let go some of that envy towards VZW. This portable gaming/smartphone hybrid sports a 4-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.3 out of the box; what really makes this device unique, though, it its slide-out Playstation gamepad and exclusive gaming content.

[Updated] Sony Ericsson Promises 2011 XPERIA Line Will Get Ice Cream Sandwich, We Try To Act Skeptical

Update: We knew it was too good to be true, and Sony Ericsson has released an official statement on the matter. Let's just say that Xperia devices may not be seeing ICS after all.

It seems Sony-Ericsson's PR arm has found its way straight to the heart of Android fanboys: by promising major OS updates. There really is no better feeling for an Android phone owner than knowing that, at some point, their phone will be getting the bump to the latest version of the Android operating system - and not left to die on the streets of software obsolescence.

Phew - Nexus Prime Wap File With 480x800 Resolution Just A Placeholder After All

Yesterday we reported on a shocking bit of news discovered within an XML file on Samsung's website. The file nexusprime.xml suggested that the next Nexus device was to have a screen resolution of just 480x800. This, along with the ARM11 processor listed in the file proved to be a source of concern for many, but the bewildering specs seemed too out of place to be true.

After some digging around (thanks, Florin and others who raised valid concerns), a similar file for the Nexus S was discovered on Samsung's site in the very same folder (nexuss.xml).

Yesterday we saw a video of an HP TouchPad with full multitouch capabilities, and today Team CyanogenMod dropped a video not only showing off multitouch (which was apparently their work in the first place, but we'll stay out of that drama for now), but accurate color reproduction and full GPU acceleration as well.

ohai, creepy doll!

The rate of progress being made on the TouchPad is truly astounding. It won't be long now before we have a fully working version for all of you who took advantage of the firesale.
