Unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus Now On Sale At Expansys.com... For $750

Not in the mood to wait around for Verizon to finally decide to put a firm release date on the Galaxy Nexus' head? Tied to one of the other carriers? If your answer to either of those questions was affirmative (and if you have three-quarters of a grand lying around), you'll be delighted to know that Expansys just put up a page from which customers can purchase the I9250 GSM variant of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Awesome Mod: Slide 2 Wake Kernel Wakes/Locks Your GSM HTC Evo 3D By Swiping Across Capacitive Buttons – Support For More Devices In The Works

Awesome Mod: Slide 2 Wake Kernel Wakes/Locks Your GSM HTC Evo 3D By Swiping Across Capacitive Buttons – Support For More Devices In The Works

Developer bponury, the mind behind WifiKill and FaceNiff, has created something that looks pretty awesome, if you're the owner of a GSM-enabled HTC Evo 3D. That something is the Slide 2 Wake kernel, which allows you to wake and lock your device by sliding a finger across your Evo 3D's capacitive buttons. The kernel is still in its very early stages, but seems to perform quite well.

While the kernel is only running on one very specific device for now, there is hope for at least a port to the CDMA variant of the 3D, and perhaps other devices with capacitive buttons as well.

DROID HD Makes First Appearance, Leaves Us Saying "BIONIC Who?"

DROID HD Makes First Appearance, Leaves Us Saying "BIONIC Who?"

Motorola is apparently hard at work on another high-end handset known as the DROID HD - and boy, is it a good-looking piece of kit. Just take a look:

Left to right: DROID BIONIC, DROID HD

The DROID HD appears to be what the DROID X2 should have been - namely, much better in every respect. While it may have a qHD display (not confirmed - just presumed), in almost every other conceivable way, the HD looks like the Moto handset to have.

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!")

Breaking: AlphaRevX Full Unlock (S-OFF, Root, Recovery, Custom ROMs) Out Now For HTC Incredible S, Desire (CDMA/GSM), Wildfire, Aria

Ever since the beginning of June, we've been teased by and patiently waiting for the mysterious AlphaRevX unlocker page that promised to completely unlock (S-OFF) the latest HTC Wildfire and even Incredible S, making root, custom ROMs, ClockworkMod recovery all possible.

After a period of private beta testing, the wraps have come off an hour ago, and the first public release of AlphaRevX is now available for download (see instructions below) for the following devices:

  • HTC Incredible S (Vivo), which remained completely undefeated until now
  • HTC Desire CDMA (BravoC)
  • HTC Desire GSM (Bravo)
  • HTC Wildfire (Buzz)
  • HTC Aria (Liberty)

Incredible 2 and Desire S are not supported at the moment, though I suspect they use a similar protection scheme and will also be cracked shortly.

[Download] Official Gingerbread Update For Original Galaxy Tab (P1000)

The official OTA for the GSM version of the original Galaxy Tab just started rolling out, and Chainfire over at the XDA forums has already pulled the update, rooted it, and made it available for your downloading pleasure.

While I didn't read the entire thread, it appears that most users had better luck with the version that includes the bootloader.
