VZW HTC Android device Besides this  global-ready-handset that we saw at the beginning of August, HTC has been relatively quiet recently in terms of Android device leaks lately.  That changes today with the device that you see above and below.  Looking like a mix between an EVO and a Nexus One, this unnamed product is said to be a state of the art Android phone heading to Verizon.  The device features a 4.3-inch screen, 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, a front-facing camera, and a kickstand all wrapped up in a handset that the source described as a phone that “makes the Droid 2 look like a kids toy.”  There was a global Android handset mentioned in a  leaked Verizon roadmap at the beginning of the month that mentioned a global Android device from HTC; it’s unclear if this is that device or if it’s the slider that I mentioned earlier.VZW HTC Android device

There’s no word on any pricing or release information, or even a name, but this device has just jumped to the top of my list of anticipated Android phones.  With its huge screen, 8 megapixel camera, front-facing cam, and brushed aluminum accents, the handset screams high-end.  While it’s somewhat disappointing that the phone isn’t coming to more Android-starved carrier like AT&T, I’m also excited that Verizon is continuing to build their Android lineup, especially when they do it with bleeding edge handsets like this one.  So who’s going to be skipping the DROID X and DROID 2 to wait for this device?

You’d think that RIM would be replacing highest-end product with a brand new device, right? Well, previous rumors suggested that the BlackBerry Bold 9700 would get nothing more than a simple refresh, and we’re able to confirm those rumors. We have a leaked internal document detailing all sorts of fun stuff. Market positioning, technical overviews, and a bunch more. The big picture view? The BlackBerry Bold R020 (9020? 9750? 9780? We’re just guessing) will be practically identical to the 9700 visually. Internal changes include a 5 megapixel camera sensor, and 512MB of RAM up from 256MB. It will also launch with BlackBerry 6 — obviously. We’d love to say there is more, but there isn’t, so check out the leaked document and let us know your thoughts, ok? (bgr)

philips fluid smartphone_11

With modern gadgets getting smaller and better to replace the jewelry or fashion accessories, the contemporary jewelry designers may have to face a tough time in the days to come. Yesterday we covered the Bricell Jewelry Phone in the blog, and now it’s time for another stylish gadget to tickle the trendy users. Conceived by Brazilian designer Dinard da Mata, the “Fluid” is a smartphone concept that as suggested by its name features a flexible OLED display to allow better mobility and ease of use. Designed for Philips, the mobile phone wraps around the wrist to become a bracelet for the fashionable, while gives an easy access on the go.


If you think about it, the DROID 2 is the one of the few high-end Android phones out there that sports a physical QWERTY keyboard.  The device appeases the BlackBerry converts and physical QWERTY die-hards, and Verizon and Motorola are both well aware of it.  It’s also the only recent DROID unit that – knock on wood – isn’t backordered.  Yep, that means you should be able to walk into most Verizon stores nationwide and walk out with a shiny new device.

The DROID 2 ships in the same small, environmentally-conscious box that the DROID X and original DROID ship in.  In the box, you get an AC adapter module, USB cable, 8 GB microSD card (installed in the phone), and instruction manuals.  The design is largely reminiscent of the original device, save for a new bottom lip, chrome housing, and rubberized exterior

buttons.  The exterior is blue and silver versus the black and “brown sugar” color of the original device.  I had no problem with the design of the original DROID, but I do think the design changes on the DROID 2 are improvements.

Along with the design changes, Motorola has upgraded the internals.  The DROID 2 offers a 1 GHz TI OMAP processor, 8 GB of internal storage, and an 8 GB microSD card.  As I’ve said before, 3.7-inches is my personal preference in display size, and the DROID 2 falls into that category.  It offers Motorola’s unique 854 x 480 pixel layout, making the display longer and skinnier than other devices on the market.  As a result, it’s easier to hold in the hand, and is more pocketable.  The keyboard adds some heft to it, but even at 5.96 ounces, it’s easy to put in a pocket.

The first phone to ship with Android 2.2, the DROID 2 offers the next generation of Motorola’s BLUR user interface, which is what is installed on the DROID X.  It’s not nearly as pronounced as the Backflip and Devour days, but it’s noticeable.  I prefer HTC’s widgets over Motorola’s, but am quite fond of their “Date & Time” and “Weather” options.

FedEx delivered the DROID this morning, so I haven’t worked with battery numbers.  I charged it to 100 percent at 11 AM, and at 5 PM, battery life was at about 60 percent with moderate use (calling, text messaging, e-mailing, and downloading apps from the Android Market).  I’m holding final judgment until official testing is complete, but I can see the DROID 2 making it through the day.

From what I can tell thus far, the DROID 2 is an excellent revision to the original, and provides an option for BlackBerry users looking to defect.  The upgraded internals combined with Android 2.2 out of the box make for a great experience.  The Motorola DROID 2 is available (and in stock, for the moment) for $199.99 after rebate and new two-year agreement.


LG C900 open

LG C900 closed

Following the Samsung Cetus i917 leak earlier today, we now have photos of yet

another Windows Phone 7-powered device headed to AT&T.  This time the handset is made by LG and it’s called the C900.  Sure, not quite as good a name as Cetus, but we’re not going to worry about the name until the phone is actually released.  You can see that the C900 has a sliding, four row QWERTY keyboard and some carrier branding on the OS itself.  There’s not much else we know about the phone, but it looks like AT&T fans will have a good selection of WP7 handsets in the future.

Considering the Samsung Cetus that we saw earlier was a full touch device, it’s nice to see a Windows Phone 7 handset with a full QWERTY keyboard, as well.  I’m not sure that I’m a huge fan of having the Windows key below the Back and Search buttons, but I’ll wait to pass judgment until I actually handle the phone.  Until then, we’ll all just have to look over the photos to help pass the time until November.


T-Mobile G2 spotted in the wild

T-Mobile G2 open

We’ve seen leaked images and renders of the upcoming T-Mobile G2 in the past, but now we’ve got something even better.  The folks over at Engadget have received photos of the G2 in the wild, and the device definitely looks pretty slick.  All of the previous photos and renders of the device look to be spot on with what you seen above and below.  Although the G2 isn’t powered on in the pictures, you can see that you’ll be getting a Touch Pro 2-style slide out QWERTY keyboard and what is likely a 3.7-inch display.

T-Mobile G2 side

From what we’ve seen, the G2 certainly looks like it’ll be one of the most desirable, high-end devices when it finally hits the market.  Compared to the original G1, the G2 looks more sophisticated, polished, and just a little less geeky.  Pair all that with the fact that it will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ device, and you’ve got the makings of one hot handset.  So, how many of you are going to be picking up the T-Mobile G2 when it launches?

UPDATE: Engadget received some clearer photos that show off more of the device, so we decided to update the post to include those.  Don’t get too excited about the picture of the device with the screen raised above the keyboard, because Engadget’s tipster says that the G2 will not tilt open like the Touch Pro 2 did.


LG enV Touch Android

Yesterday we brought you news that LG’s next iteration of their enV Touch would be running the Android OS, and today we’ve got even more info on that device for you.  A tipster speaking with Boy Genius Report has said that the device will end up being called the LG enV G and that it will sport a hinged, dual touchscreen form factor and a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.  The source also said that LG will be releasing a mid-range full touch device this holiday season, and that it will be running Android 2.1.  Known internally as “Thunder,” the handset will allegedly be released on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Metro PCS.  Finally, BGR‘s tipster described a Windows Phone 7-powered LG handset, likely the C900, that will be released when the OS is finally launched.  Samsung and HTC will also be contributing one handset each, says the source, although LG’s will be the only one with a keyboard.  Maybe the Cetus and the Schubert?

This is definitely a lot of news to digest at once, but I’m glad to see LG putting together so many smartphones.  I’m pretty surprised that they plan to take one of their most popular messaging devices (enV Touch) and turn it into a smartphone, but perhaps they have a new messaging phone to replace it with.  It would also be great to see them push out a device on all four big carriers along with Metro PCS, but it is kind of disappointing that the device is described as mid-range.  Which device sounds best to you, readers?
