HTC Posts Q3 '10 Financial Results - Profits Double Year Over Year

Well isn't this a surprise, Nokia? HTC's just posted their profits for Q3 of 2010, and not only are they almost double those of Q3 2009, they are, in no small part, due to Android, according to RBS analyst Steven Tseng.

That's right - the company has posted profits of T$11.1 billion, or about $360 million, for the months of July, August, and September. By ways of comparison, last year's Q3 profits were a mere T$5.695 billion, or about half of this year's profits.

While the selection of users and phones that can utilize the service right now is very (more like extremely) limited, it is still exciting to see this coming to fruition. There are devices both upcoming and already out that are slated to receive the new Sense, and it is nothing short of mind-blowing how much functionality they've added.

Source Code Released For Desire MR-2.6.32 Kernel

If you are unfamiliar with rooting or ROMs, you can check out our primers here, because we're going to talk about it:

User lalexi over at xda-developers just posted a link to HTC's official release of the Desire's kernel source code. This is very good news for the development community because, as it stands, developers have to simply patch bugs that occur when trying to overclock the processor and getting things to work, sometimes incompletely, trial-and-error style.

T-Mobile Introduces The LG Optimus T: Android Babysteps

Although the name may be reminiscent of Optimus Prime, this phone might not live up to the most powerful Autobot. Think of the Optimus T as an Android feature phone with the stats of a mid-range device.

It comes packed with the following specs:

  • Android 2.2 FroYo
  • 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 3.2MP Camera (no Flash - what is this, 2005?)
  • Wifi (includes Mobile Hotspot Option)
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth

The Optimus T appears to be the exact opposite of what most people are expecting to see from handset manufacturers: a starter phone.

[Hump Day Lollerskates] Samsung Galaxy Tab Shipping With Porn Button In Romania

In a hilarious display of linguistic differences, the Romanian Samsung Galaxy Tab will ship with an app drawer that looks like this:

samsung_galaxy_tab_porn-548x363

If this doesn't make you want a Galaxy Tab, I don't know what will.

In all seriousness, though, the Romanian word for "Start" is "Pornire" and, apparently, gets abbreviated as "Porn" quite regularly. I guess that makes sense, but it's still pretty entertaining in my book. I'm not sure how Samsung is going to feel about it in the long run but,for now, we can get some laughs at the language barrier's expense.
