[Updated] Hands-On Review Of Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G

When offered to preview Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S offering, the SPH-D700, also known as the Epic 4G, I immediately jumped on the opportunity. While my first personal-use Android device was the Nexus One, I’ve handled my share of Android smartphones, and my history of smartphone use has included several Samsung phones over the years. This being the first Galaxy S device I’ve personally handled, I’m glad to say that Samsung does not disappoint, and I can highly recommend the device to users who need a physical keyboard and can sign up for a contract with Sprint.

Dell Aero Now Available For $100 On Contract, Runs On Cupcakes

At this point, we'd consider it a joke to release a device with Android 1.5, but apparently, Dell thinks differently.

The 3.67-ounce Dell Aero goes on sale today (on Dell.com, at least; AT&T still lists it as "coming soon") for $99.99 on a new two-year contract with AT&T, and packs:

  • 2GB of onboard storage
  • triband 3.6Mbps HSDPA and quadband EDGE
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 3.5-inch 640x360 display

Oh, and the best part?

Dell Streak (Officially) Available August 13th – $299 With 2-Year Contract on AT&T, $549 Without

After having faked us out a couple weeks back, it seems Dell is finally ready to let its Streak tablet-phone-whatever loose stateside. You can get it $299 with a new or upgraded 2-year service agreement on AT&T, or shell out $549 to avoid the contractual shackle. Here’s a quick reminder of the specs the Streak is packing:

  • 5” TFT LCD with resolution of 480x800 pixels
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • HSDPA 7.2 radio (Class 12) with GPS
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g radio
  • Bluetooth v2.0
  • 5MP camera with dual-LED flash
  • Front-facing camera
  • Snapdragon 1GHz processor
  • Android 1.6
  • 2GB Internal Storage
  • 1530mAh battery

You’ll notice I’ve taken the liberty to highlight a few of the Streak’s unique points, good and bad.

Review: Samsung Intercept (Sprint) – Android Hits The Mainstream

A few weeks ago, Samsung was kind enough to send us an Intercept for review. While it may not be of Galaxy S caliber, it’s not intended to be. Rather, it’s more so aimed at the feature phone crowd – those who want something more powerful than a feature phone, but maybe not all the bells and whistles of a high-end smartphone. We spoke (unofficially) with Samsung about what other phones they think people will cross-shop the Intercept to, and they agreed its target is something like the enV Touch.

Motorola's Rugged i1 Brings Push-To-Talk And Resistance To Mother Nature To Android, Available On Sprint July 25th

If you’re the kind of person who isn’t exactly careful with their phone, or needs it to be usable in extreme conditions, you’re in luck. Sprint has just announced it will begin shipping the Motorola i1, the first push-to-talk Android phone, from their online store and telesales starting July 25, and from all other channels on August 8.

The phone meets military specifications for dust, shock, vibration, and rain, so it will certainly be able to handle anything you can throw at it (or anything you throw it against.) Nothing has changed since its launch on Boost Mobile last month, but here’s a refresher on its specs, now that the device is hitting one of the four major carriers:

  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Swype, Opera Mini 5, and Touiteur pre-installed
  • Android 1.5 with MOTOBLUR
  • 600 MHz processor
  • 3.1” screen
  • Push-to-talk
  • Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth

Clearly, the fact that it is running Android 1.5 is a huge downside, but that shouldn’t matter to the market the phone is aimed at.

Samsung Intercept Unboxing, Hands-On, And Initial Impressions

Samsung has been very good to us lately – yesterday, I came home to find the (pink) Intercept on my doorstep, and today they delivered a Captivate to Chris (yea, I got the short end of that stick.) This may not be the crown jewel in Samsung’s collection, but it serves as a phone for the masses.

It’s funny (but not surprising) to see Android moving down the phone spectrum – or rather, maybe Android is just keeping its spot and the hardware has caught up to it.

Samsung’s Affair With Android Continues – Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5 Details Emerge

Samsung is really diggin’ Android lately, isn't it? Forgetting the Galaxy S rollout for a minute, we now have some news on 2 different handsets, aimed at the lower end - the Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5.

Galaxy 3

The Galaxy 3 is the larger of the two, but frankly it’s still just a little tyke (then again, it’s aimed at little tykes, so maybe it’s fitting). It sports a 3.2” touchscreen running at 240 x 400 px, a 3.2 MP camera with geotagging, and comes with a 1 GB microSD card.

AT&T and Samsung Announce Captivate, Force Me To Eat My Words

Just in from AT&T and Samsung (days after I say AT&T has no high-end Android phones, no less) – the dead sexy Captivate, described in the press release as part of the Galaxy S class of devices, will be coming to AT&T in the near future.

We’ve been talking about this phone and its variations for some time now, and all in all we have high hopes for it – and it looks set to deliver.

HTC Aria Coming June 20th To AT&T, Initial Hands-On Impressions Surface

Good news, AT&T customers – starting June 20, AT&T will begin selling its first HTC Android device, the Aria. A few days ago, they (accidently?) released a video showing the HTC “Liberty” being tested. At the time, we speculated that it might actually be the HTC Aria we’d heard about before. Turns out we were probably correct, as various news outlets have been receiving the Aria to play around with, and they look to be one and the same.
