Just in time for the discontinuation of the original myTouch, the rumored myTouch HD has been made official, albeit with a slight name change (HD has been dropped). And the device is rocking some pretty impressive specs, which may just be enough to draw people away from the G2:
- Next generation 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
- 5 megapixel camera with 720p capture
- Front facing camera for video calling over Wi-Fi and 3G
- 3.8" WVGA screen
- Genius Button
- Android 2.2 (possibly with Espresso UI)
- HSPA+ capabilities
Unfortunately, despite the awesome specs we have available, there's no word on pricing, and the only information we have on a release date is "in time for the holidays." Read More
Assuming this leaked image is real, Sprint has got two new Android devices in store for its customers, although one of them is hardly new at all: the Kyocera Zio, which will be branded as the Sanyo Zio, and the Samsung Transform, which appears to be another Android device, perhaps even from the Galaxy S series.
The Zio probably won't fire anybody up; it was announced last March, and even then it was considered a mid-range phone. Read More
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:
- Motorola Droid - Affordable doesn’t necessarily have to mean cheap, and such is the case with the original Motorola Droid.
Similar to devices being offered up by competing carriers – Sprint’s Intercept, AT&T’s Backflip and Aria, T-Mobile’s entire line-up – Verizon plans to introduce a cheaper, low-end alternative to pricier Android models. Engadget reports that the the Motorola WX445 runs Android 2.1 with some type of MOTOBLUR overlay (possibly the same version used on the Droid X), and sports a screen measuring somewhere between 2.5 and 3 inches.
The phone was also described as looking very “cheap,” and has been likened to a keyboardless Palm Pre. Read More
Due to the amount of information crammed into day 1 of the Google I/O conference, I am blitzing through everything that happened, keeping it short and to the point.
There was a special case set up at Google I/O today with pretty much every Android phone ever made to date, from all over the world. It was really impressive to realize how many Android phones are out there right now and really put things in perspective, especially if you compare to Apple and its couple of iPhone revisions.
