Chart: Android Phone Size Over Time - We're Going To Need Bigger Hands

Android has a mysterious case of gigantism, and I'm not entirely certain why manufacturers keep feeling the need to have a bigger phone than the next guy. The size war (all male anatomical euphemisms aside) is on, and we're not sure when it's going to end. Take a look at these device charts for the three major Android manufacturers in (pretty much) chronological order of release:

HTC

moto

High-end phones only. No QWERTY devices.

[Leak] Gingerbread Build EP4P For The Samsung Droid Charge

Ah, the Droid Charge -- the Droid that never should have been. It was the first LTE Droid to hit Verzon and... well, its accomplishments stopped there. In fact, this once-flagship device is still running Froyo, rendering some of its hardware basically useless (like the front facing camera). Fortunately, Gingerbread may be just around the corner for those who bought into the Charge hype, as a new leaked build just landed on MyDroidWorld, courtesy of P3Droid.

[Review] Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: Thin And Sexy Drops A Size, But TouchWiz Kills Some Brain Cells Along The Way

Samsung was kind enough to send a Galaxy Tab 8.9 our way for review last week ("surprise!"), and I have to say: this thing is thin, light, sexy... and Samsung's custom user interface (UI), TouchWiz, is not fit for tablets.

At A Glance

Let's take a quick look at the specs:

  • Android 3.1 (Honeycomb)
  • 8.9" WXGA display (1280x800)
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 CPU
  • 16/32GB storage
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 2.0MP front-facing camera, 3.0MP camera around back
  • 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Samsung's TouchWiz UI

The specs may be fairly standard by now, but they still power Android every bit as well as they have in the past.

Download: Leaked Galaxy Nexus Full System Dump (ICL23D), Recovery, And Boot Images

I'm surprised this didn't come sooner, but better late than never, right? The full Galaxy Nexus (presumably GSM) system dump, together with boot and recovery images were leaked earlier today by none other than Paul O'Brien, the founder of MoDaCo, a talented developer, and creator of many custom ROMs. If you remember, previously only the apps as well as certain bits and pieces of Ice Cream Sandwich were made available for download.

We try to avoid excessive posts about FCC filings that may or may not be for Android goodies coming to the US, but this one was a dead giveaway for AT&T. Just take a look:
