Samsung Galaxy S II Review: Modern And Powerful, But Will Samsung Keep It That Way?

Samsung Galaxy S II Review: Modern And Powerful, But Will Samsung Keep It That Way?

Samsung's original Galaxy S was undoubtedly a great success for the company. One could say it was their first serious smartphone, and its core was widely dispersed around the globe, appearing as the i9000 in Europe and Asia, and - perhaps more familiarly - the AT&T Captivate, Sprint Epic 4G, T-Mobile Vibrant, and Verizon Fascinate in the USA. While we have yet to see firm plans for a repeat of this four-pronged attack with the successor to the Galaxy S, the Galaxy S II i9100 (aka the Samsung "It's Over 9000!")

[Rumor] Samsung Epic 4G To Get Gingerbread At The End Of July?

[Rumor] Samsung Epic 4G To Get Gingerbread At The End Of July?

A few weeks ago, we saw a leaked Gingerbread build for the Samsung Epic 4G and it looks like Sammy has been putting the finishing touches on it since then. According to SprintFeed, Epic owners could see an OTA hit their device around July 24th. This is a tentative date, so don't grab the sharpie and make it permanent on the calendar just yet (oh, who am I kidding - no one uses a traditional calendar anymore).

Well, That Was Fast - HTC Is Testing A Gingerbread Build For The Desire

Well, That Was Fast - HTC Is Testing A Gingerbread Build For The Desire

A couple of weeks ago, HTC said that, after months of hard work and failed attempts from its engineers, Gingerbread would not be coming to the Desire. Naturally, this brought on an onslaught of negative feedback from Desire owners, and HTC quickly backpedaled, stating that Gingerbread would be coming to the Desire, albeit a bit stripped down. It appears that this update was easier to put together than originally thought, as the build has now reached the testing phase, according to HTC's official Facebook page.
