Are you sitting down? Assuming you're reading this on your PC, I would imagine that you are. Unless, of course, you have a standing desk, in which case I urge you to sit down. We've seen it pop up on the web but haven't really heard anything about its price. This time, however, it looks like it made an in-store appearance at Walmart and brought a price tag along with it.

Verizon's doing about as well keeping the Charge under wraps as Sprint did with the EVO Shift 4G - and now, the Samsung DROID has shown up on Walmart's online wireless store, albeit only in the form of a stock photo:
For a phone that's still unannounced (technically), and reportedly being released tomorrow, Verizon doesn't seem too concerned with generating fanfare for its second LTE device.
After the release date flip-flopping on the Thunderbolt, it wouldn't surprise in the least if the Charge was facing a [sort of expected] minor delay. Read More
2 of T-Mobile's most exciting devices that are arriving this month, the dual-core LG G2x and the Samsung Sidekick 4G, have just gone live on Wirefly's pre-order site. Wirefly, one of the largest online mobile retailers, is sweetening the deal on the G2x by $50 compared to MSRP and on the Sidekick 4G (pick black or pink) by $20.
Both devices come with free activation for the pre-order period and, of course, ship for free as well. Read More
In a press release sent out this morning, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S II will be hitting UK shelves on May 1 - and that it will be targeting all major networks and retailers. The flagship of Samsung's Mobile Division has had its armament upped prior to release, cranking the device's dual-core Exynos processor to an impressive 1.2GHz.
We got to spend a little time with the Galaxy S II at CTIA last month, and the device's slim proportions (8.49mm thick) and light weight were difficult to believe in light of its dual-core status - it's a stealth fighter among jumbo jets like the ATRIX or BIONIC. Read More
Last we heard, Samsung's DROID Charge was scheduled to be released on April 7th - yesterday. Well needless to say, that date has come and gone without so much as a mention of Samsung's LTE handset; however, thanks to Sears, we now have a new timeline: April 14.
The leak also brings news that's bound to make HTC fans smile - the Incredible 2's release date has been rescheduled from April 28th to the 21st, a decidedly welcome change. Read More
It looks like it's Android season in Alltel country, because four new handsets have just dropped on the regional provider's network. As of right now, Alltel customers can choose between the Motorola Milestone X - most of us know this one as the Droid X, the LG Axis - a low-end phone with a full slide-out QWERTY, the Samsung Gem - a tiny Froyo starter phone, and the HTC Merge - a mid-range Froyo device with a slide-out QWERTY.

Thanks to Radio Shack, it's no surprise that the Sidekick 4G is hitting the sales floor on April 20th for $99, but T-Mobile has finally made an official announcement via its Twitter page. In the interest of consolidation, it was also announced that the LG G2x would be available in-store for $199 after a $50 mail in rebate, but If you just can't wait to get your hands it, you'll be able to grab it online starting April 15th.

According to Samsung Mobile's India Twitter account, the Samsung Galaxy S II ("SGSII") has been delayed globally by "at least a month."
Relatedly, GSM Arena has confirmed that the SGSII has undergone a change in specification - bumping its dual-core Samsung Exynos processor up to a screaming 1.2GHz. The official SGSII microsite no longer lists the device's exact processor specs - furthering speculation that the change will probably be officially announced by Samsung at some point. Read More
No one ever accused Boost Mobile of overachieving on the Android phone front, and the carrier's latest announcement doesn't really do much to change that. Indeed, just as expected, Sprint's little tagalong used its recent press conference to unveil its first CDMA Android handset: the Samsung Galaxy Prevail.
With an itsy-bitsy 3.2-inch display, a measly 2MP camera, and a tiny 2GB microSD card out of the box, the Prevail isn't about to blow anyone away - but then again, we geeks probably aren't Boost Mobile's target demographic here. Read More
It has been rumored that Samsung and Boost Mobile will announce the Android 2.2 Galaxy Prevail at tonight's event in New York City, and that has been all but verified now. A Galaxy Prevail teaser is live on Boost's website, accompanied by a "sold online soon" badge and a cool $180 price tag, which seems like a pretty good deal for a no-contract phone.
From a tech aspect, the only thing that we know about the Galaxy Prevail at this point is what you see below, but it already appears to be the best choice from the current Boost lineup, even with that measly 2MP camera and a tiny 3.2" screen. Read More
