T-Mobile G2_Landscape

T-Mobile sent out a press release this morning to officially announce the G2. We've been hearing about (and seeing) the G2 for some time now, especially in the past few weeks. Now, however, we have the official word - and it seems to confirm most of what we've heard.

  • MSM7230 CPU @ 800 MHz
  • 3.7" screen
  • HSPA+
  • Slide-out four row QWERTY keyboard
  • 720p video recording (with automatic upload to Photobucket - nifty)
  • 5 MP Camera with LED flash and autofocus
  • 8 GB mSD card pre-installed (support for up to 32 GB cards)
  • 4 GB ROM
  • Swype

Interestingly, T-Mobile says existing customers will have first dibs at the device - an interesting move considering how many customers a new high-end phone can bring in, but understandable for customer loyalty.

The R2D2 is coming later this month, but in the meantime P3Droid from MyDroidWorld ripped apart the system dump and weeded out the special edition Star Wars themed live wallpapers. He was also kind enough to shoot a few handy videos demonstrating them, and I must say, they're pretty cool and will definitely be appreciated by any Star Wars fan. Kudos, P3.

Update: The static wallpapers have now been leaked as well.

The wait is over, folks! The buy one get one free deal for the Samsung Fascinate has just gone live on Verizon's website. We know you've been holding out for it and it doesn't get any better than paying for one and being handed two. It's time for you to replace your old crappy phone with two Super AMOLED Android powerhouses. Get on it!

As we all know, Samsung is very adamant about its famed Galaxy S's older brother, the Galaxy Tab. We're getting more details about it as days go by, but so far it appears that Samsung is planning on selling it exclusively through wireless carriers and has already secured several deals with Europe carriers.

What is very interesting is this quote they made in an article by the Wall Street Journal:

For one of the first phones out with a Snapdragon, this sure has been some time coming. Over at the MoDaCo Android forum, poster LIQUID_USER managed to obtain what he has described as a “very early build” for Acer’s 3.5”, Éclair-running slate. Despite this somewhat unofficial status, the build Acer_LiquidF_0.007.00_EMEA-GEN1_05.01.01) is said to be quite stable, with most device functions working as normal, including wireless tethering and Adobe Flash.

As expected, performance benchmarks have increased but the CPU still can’t quite catch the Nexus One at its current clocking (on the other hand, the Acer Liquid’s GPU drivers have always produced better results than the N1, which has sparked a porting project over on XDA-Developers).

I’m not exactly sure how this strange pairing was birthed, probably somewhere in a boardroom of extremely bored HP executives… but it looks like HP’s Tablet plus Printer combo is drawing closer to readiness for release. I thought one of the driving tenets of the tablet revolution was to obsolete printers, but obviously HP disagrees – hey, they’re the experts. The Zeen, as it’s appellated, is a 7-inch capacitive tablet which will be bundled in a $400 package with the C510 PhotoSmart eStation.

Update: All good things must one day come to an end, and alas, it looks like Sony's just decided to issue a mandatory update to all PS3s that breaks this jailbreak method. Heartbreaking, I know.

If Sony's PS3 gaming system took a step backward in functionality when Sony disabled its ability to install Linux, it's just taken two steps forward again.

t4nav, a Senior Member of xda-developers, has just discovered a method to hack the PS3 using a Nexus One or a Desire!

During his keynote speech at IFA, Eric Schmidt made some interesting comments in regards to Android, tablets, and TVs. Specifically, TV's would be shipping with Google TV software on board (rather than as add-on hardware), and tablets will run Chrome OS rather than Android.

That tablets will primarily run Chrome OS may come as a surprise to some people - after all, nearly every tablet that doesn't run Windows (or iOS) runs Android.

tegra 2

It looks like LG doesn’t want Samsung to get all the dual core glory. The company has just announced their own plans for dual core smartphones, this time using the the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that we’ve already seen power a few Android tablets. The expected Q4 release of these phones (interestingly, the same timeframe as Samsung) seems to line up with the release of an Android-powered LG phone headed to T-Mobile.
