T-Mobile G2's CPU Clocked At A Paltry 800Mhz

T-Mobile G2's CPU Clocked At A Paltry 800Mhz

Chalk this one up under the 'lame' category: looks like the T-Mobile G2's CPU ticks along at just 800 MHz. In a world of 1+ GHz smart phones, that's definitely something of a letdown.

A slower clock speed doesn't always equate to lesser performance - but without any solid previous benchmarks to illustrate what this new(er) CPU is really capable of, it's hard to say whether this is going to be nearly as adequate as T-Mobile claims.

Official Samsung Galaxy Tab Site Goes Live: Design, 360 View, Videos, Wallpapers, Specs, Accessories - It's All There

The long awaited Samsung Galaxy Tab is now official. After finally getting revealed at the IFA 2010 conference just about an hour ago, all proverbial cats are finally out of their proverbial bags. While those members of the press who are actually present on location are playing with display units (unfortunately, that doesn't include us, this time), the rest of us can browse around the official Galaxy Tab site which Samsung launched following the announcement.

We'll Be There - Samsung Throwing A Mobile Event Announcing Media Hub And The Latest Android Device On September 16th

Yesterday, Samsung sent out invites for a media launch event happening in NYC on September 16th. 2 announcements are planned:

  1. Official unveiling of Samsung's new Media Hub service and
  2. Showing off the latest Android-powered device.

Android Police gratefully accepted the invitation and picked me to cover it, so expect a post-game report to float on the site sometime after the event concludes.

While we do not yet know for certain what this new "Android-powered device" will be, the invitation does include the "Galaxy S" brand logo.

Back To School With Android: The Budget Phones And Awesome Apps That Will Help You Get Through The Year

Phones

Not everyone needs a new phone at this time of year, especially as you probably got your last one some time around Christmas, but if you’re in the market for a decent Android phone on your college-sized budget, here’s the what you’re looking at if you’re one of the four major carriers:

Verizon

  • Motorola Droid - Affordable doesn’t necessarily have to mean cheap, and such is the case with the original Motorola Droid.

Motorola Milestone 2 Announced

Motorola Milestone 2 Announced

It was only a matter of time, right? Just as with the original Droid, Motorola has been quick to create a GSM version of the Droid 2 for all of our non-American friends (hello, John Thompson) that appears to be identical to its Verizon-bound cousin.

That's right: the Motorola Milestone 2 has just been announced, along with Android 2.2 FroYo, an enhanced MotoBlur skin, a 5MP camera, 8GB of onboard storage as well as an 8GB microSD card, a 1GHz OMAP SOC processor, 512MB of RAM, and 720p HD video recording (one of the Droid 2's major omissions).

Motorola Unveils The Defy: Dust And Water-Resistance Included

Motorola Unveils The Defy: Dust And Water-Resistance Included

Leave it to Motorola to come up with a bizarrely compelling new device that they can slip MotoBlur onto.

We’ve recently seen the Charm and Flipout with Android 2.1 and MotoBlur, and now the Defy is joining them. However, this is a touchscreen only device, and it has something else special: an IP67 water and dust resistance rating. That rating qualifies it as fully protected from dust, and immune to the effects of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m for up to 30 minutes.

T-Mobile G2 Prices Leaked: $200 On Contract, $500 Off Contract

T-Mobile G2 Prices Leaked: $200 On Contract, $500 Off Contract

It seems to be the trend nowadays that you know everything about a device before it even gets properly announced, and while it makes for plenty of blog-fodder, it sort of spoils the fun of waiting for new things to come out.

Anyhoo, TmoNews just got their hands on the pricing scheme for the upcoming G2, HTC’s eagerly anticipated landscape slider. Calling the pricing “Exactly what everyone expects it to be”, TmoNews posted a photo of an internal T-Mobile document, showing the G2 to be $499.99 off-contract, or $199.99 with (presumably) a new two-year agreement and a $50 MIR.

These latest additions bring Sprint’s 4G coverage grand total to over 50 urban hotspots. Still no official release of 4G we caught in the Bay Area but we're hoping for something soon, as the clock that will mark the promised end of the year timeline is ticking.

Archos Announces A Whole New Lineup Of Five Froyo Tablets

Archos Announces A Whole New Lineup Of Five Froyo Tablets

While the current state of Android tablets is measly to say the least, it looks like that may be changing soon enough, with the Galaxy Tab that we will (hopefully) see announced in 3 days at IFA 2010, the recently announced ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Froyo tablet, and now five new Archos tablets.

Admittedly, the Archos name didn't exactly excite us (this is, after all, the same company that made the resistive touchscreen-impaired, buttonless, Android 1.6-laden, Archos 5 Internet tablet) but after a closer look at what they've got to offer, we think the manufacturer might be onto something here.
