Remember a couple of days ago when we reported that Toshiba may be unveiling a slim new tablet at IFA to compete with the Galaxy Tab 10.1? It turns out the rumor was true, and Notebook Italia has released the first live photos of what we suspect will be called the Toshiba Excite.
Despite the iffy appearance of the various ports shown in the initial renders, Notebook Italia confirms that the tablet has microSD, microUSB, and mini HDMI ports. Read More
Sony Ericsson's original Xperia arc was a great phone, winning Best European Camera Phone from EISA, and another award for its sleek design. The arc's next iteration- the Xperia arc S was announced by Sony today in Berlin, and ups the ante over its predecessor by packing in a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a sweep panorama camera function that has the capability of creating 3D panoramas. The phone also comes with access to Sony's Music and Video unlimited services, bringing a lot more entertainment to your device. Read More
It looks like Kyocera is giving this Android thing another go, this time in the form of a mid-range device set to hit Sprint on September 9th called the Milano. Sporting a 3-inch display, 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM, and Android 2.3, the Milano is nothing amazing, but if you're not looking for a powerhouse like the Epic 4G Touch, then this little daisy should work out just fine.
Not only that, but it won't break the bank, either -- the price is as small as the phone, at only $50 with a two-year agreement. Read More
Finally! The long awaited Gingerbread update for both the Droid Incredible and ThunderBolt will be hitting the airwaves in September, according to HTC's official Twitter.
While several leaked Android 2.3.x builds for each device have surfaced over the past few months, none of them were deemed good enough to achieve "official" status, so it's good to know that HTC has finally put the finishing touches on each.
No solid date has been set, so just know that your waiting will finally come to an end within the next few weeks. Read More
Sony has finally lifted the curtain on its upcoming Tablet S and Tablet P, formerly known as the S1 and S2, at today's IFA event. While there is little left to known about this dynamic duo, it's nice to finally get an official look at each of them.

Our daily trawl through the interwebs has revealed an intriguing landing page at Verizon's DroidDoes website for the hotly anticipated Motorola Droid Bionic.
The page at www.droiddoes.com/#/bionic, appearing just a few hours ago, features an old-timey image of a television test pattern with the text "Awaiting Blogger Data Entry...". The image is surrounded by four boxes requiring "input codes" from the blogs Boing Boing, Boy Genius Report, Joystiq, and Android Central. Read More
Since Verizon still wouldn't officially give up the upcoming Droid Bionic's release date, all we've had to chew on so far were rumors of the September 8th release date here and there (the latter was then discredited as an unofficial account by VZW, so it really has no credibility anymore).
To throw another rumor into the fire, one that seems to corroborate all the previous rumors, today the folks at Droid Attic dug up what seems to be an image of Best Buy's internal system showing the Bionic in stock on September 7th. Read More
The official Galaxy S II press conference has only just begun (it's streaming live now), but all 3 carriers we've been expecting to see the S II on - Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile - have already sent out their press releases.
The Galaxy SII is already available in Europe and Korea, debuting as Samsung's fastest selling smartphone to date. The 3 variants in the U.S. will share many of the same specs, but some aspects, such as the screen sizes, battery capacities, and mobile radios, will be different. Read More
We've all been waiting for weeks - nay, months - for Sammy to bring the Galaxy S II to the US. Announcement day is finally upon us despite a bit of a delay due to bad weather, but Sammy has already revealed the Sprint version of the GSII, named the Epic 4G Touch, ahead of tonight's event.
The Epic 4G Touch will sport a larger, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, verses the 4.3-inch screen of its global counterpart. Read More
