HTC Aria Now Able To Side Load Apps Thanks To Sync Update

Nobody was happy to learn that the HTC Aria would be locked down in the same way as its predecessor, the Backflip, and be unable to install non-Market apps. Fortunately, HTC has given Aria owners a sort of “fix” through an update in their desktop client.

The newest version of HTC Sync for Aria (which you can download for Windows here) gives users the ability to load an APK onto their phone, which means they now have access to a host of new apps that are not available on the Market.

AT&T Announces July 18th Release For Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) With $199 Price Tag

This morning, AT&T announced that the Samsung Captivate (aka Galaxy S i9000) would go on sale July 18th at a new contract or upgrade price of $199. The Galaxy S will be a watershed in AT&T’s release history: Captivate will be the first high-end Android device to reach an AT&T store and sit side by side with (or perhaps in an unlit corner far away from) the iPhone 4.

There does not appear to be a pre-order option, so you anxious AT&T users will likely have to get to your local AT&T store July 18th to pick up your device if you want it on release day.

Our Samsung Galaxy S Launch Event Report, Photos, And Q&A

Last night, Samsung officially announced their Galaxy S smartphone family at a swank New York City party after several weeks of blurrycam shots, spec sheets and rumors. Spanning all four major US carriers - Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile - the Galaxy S flavors stand to be a surging juggernaut in the HTC dominated Android world.

Incidentally, I was at the event and had the pleasure of doing a live blogging session, followed by some hands-on time with all the phones.

Samsung Galaxy S Series Devices Now Confirmed For Sprint (Epic 4G), Verizon (Fascinate), And US Cellular. T-Mobile’s Version (Vibrant) Details Emerge

It was reported some time ago that the Samsung Galaxy S would hit every major carrier in the US – and it seems like the prediction was dead on. First announced for AT&T as the Samsung Captivate, the Galaxy S has already been confirmed for T-Mobile as the Samsung Vibrant, and was just announced as the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon, and an unnamed version of the device for US Cellular.

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.

AT&T To Customers: You Can Have Any Android You Want, As Long As It Sucks

If you’ve been paying attention to the news releases regarding the HTC Aria, you know that AT&T will once again be locking down the apps users can install by restricting unofficial app downloading. If you’ve been paying attention for a while now, you also know that they did the same thing to the Motorola Backflip – the only other Android phone they offer.

Both phones already feature smaller, lower def screens, when compared to their Android brethren available on other networks.

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.

AT&T Accidentally Outs The HTC Liberty On Purpose

2010-06-11 20h41_49 2010-06-11 20h41_49

Yeah, so the title may be a bit confusing, but it’s more or less an accurate summary. Basically, AT&T released a (promo?) video detailing their testing procedure for Android phones, in which Dante Martin, a device product manager at AT&T, waves around a HTC Android handset that looks a whole lot like the Aria whose leaked pictures were outed a few weeks ago.

In addition to those leaked pictures, ROM developer Coinflipper sent Android Central a render of a HTC device dubbed the ‘Liberty’.

Rumorama: HTC To Boost AT&T’s Android Line-Up With The Aria?

Skeptic hats on for this one, folks. The gents over at Phonedog are reporting that they have inside information on an upcoming HTC Android phone slated to hit AT&T, dubbed the Aria.

Details are sparse, but the phone will supposedly be running HTC’s SenseUI skin and be powered by Android 2.1 which is a bit of a bummer, though HTC has previously announced that all phones launched this year should receive an update to 2.2, so that’s promising.
