Motorola Quench XT3 Launches in India

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 09:25 AM PDT

India has been slowly, yet consistently, been getting a trickle of Android-based smartphones into their market over the last several months. And, even if people might expect that these handsets would be lesser than the ones found in other markets, it looks like the region isn’t slacking all that much. Sure, it may not be as powerful as a handset as, say, the Droid X, but the Motorola Quench XT3 is still a good phone. And, if you’re in India, you can now pick one up for yourself.

The Motorola Quench XT3 features a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, integrated GPS and WiFi, and the ability to connect to 3G. There’s a headset jack, a 3.2MP camera on the back, and a 600MHz processor under the hood. You’ll also be able to expand your memory thanks to the MicroSD card slot. The handset features 512MB of ROM and 256MB of RAM, as well as Bluetooth connectivity. But, what makes the whole thing worth it, is the fact that Motorola bumped the Operating System from Android 1.6 to Android 2.1.

The Quench XT3 is priced at a semi-reasonable 12,990 INR, or about $300.

Samsung Galaxy Tab hits T-Mobile from $400 on Nov 10

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 06:42 AM PDT

Sprint has officially confirmed that its version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will arrive on November 10.  The slate will be priced from $399.99 with a new, two-year agreement – just like Sprint’s version – but according to the carrier’s press release will also be available with prepaid data plans.

That implies there’ll be a more expensive version (i.e. with little or no subsidy, as with Verizon’s Galaxy Tab) with no long-term agreement to sign.

T-Mobile to Launch Samsung Galaxy Tab Nov. 10

Galaxy Tab hits stores first at T-Mobile, delivers powerful Web and entertainment experiences

Bellevue, Wash. — Oct. 27, 2010 PDT T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the United States1, today announced that T-Mobile will be the first to launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ in the U.S. T-Mobile's first Android™-powered tablet, the Galaxy Tab delivers access to rich content on a seven-inch touch screen for a truly mobile entertainment experience. It is expected to be available at T-Mobile retail stores and online Nov. 10.
Adding fuel to the entertainment experience on the Galaxy Tab is T-Mobile's super-fast HSPA+ mobile broadband network, which delivers a speed boost allowing the 3G-enabled device to load Web pages and videos even faster than in areas of 3G coverage2. The brilliant enhanced TFT screen and sleek, compact form factor allow customers to bring the Galaxy Tab's multimedia capabilities to life for themselves or to share, combining all their entertainment and communication needs into one device.

"Customers want richer, deeper interactions with entertainment and online content through connected, portable mobile broadband devices that are small enough to carry and big enough to share with friends and family," said Jeremy Korst, director of broadband products and services, T-Mobile USA. "T-Mobile's unique offerings on the Galaxy Tab paired with the power of T‑Mobile's new network allow us to bring a truly differentiated portable entertainment offering to market."

Customers can also watch series premieres and their favorite TV shows the day after they air. Samsung worked closely with all of the content providers to ensure that each movie and TV show is optimized to deliver a premium entertainment experience.

Unlike other video-calling solutions that only work over Wi-Fi, Video Chat on the Galaxy Tab from T-Mobile enables customers to connect with friends and family from wherever they might be through T-Mobile's network or Wi-Fi. With the Galaxy Tab's front-facing camera paired with Qik Video Chat, customers can hold video conversations with those who have a Galaxy Tab or other compatible mobile device or PC, or even broadcast their view through the rear-facing camera. Customers also have the option to leave Video Mail using Qik when someone is unavailable.
Kindle for Android™
The Kindle for Android application lets customers shop for hundreds of thousands of books in the Kindle Store, including New York Times® Best Sellers and new releases from $9.99. Using Amazon's Whispersync technology, customers can automatically synchronize the last page read, bookmarks, annotations, and more across multiple devices.

Nikon at work on Android-powered digital photo frame

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 05:09 AM PDT

Digital photo frames are very common today and are one of the things that is given very frequently as a gift around the holiday season. There are a huge number of the things on the market today and Nikon is set to offer up its own.

Nikon is said to be working on a digital photo frame that runs Android. Android on the frame would open up a new wealth of features and possibilities for the device that your typical digital frame can't handle.

The frame is also said to be able to convert any 2D image into a 3D image that can be viewed without 3D glasses. The frame is the NF-300i and has a 7.2-inch screen. Sadly, it’s apparently only for Japan.


PayPal leaks Android Market support

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 05:02 AM PDT

In the immortal words of Home Simpson – d’oh. Someone over at PayPal hit the go button too early on the official announcement that PayPal was now supporting the Android Marketplace. Apparently, the announcement was only online for a very short time, but that was long enough for it to be Tweeted and Google to cache the page immortalizing someone’s mistake.

PayPal’s Naveed Anwar was the name attached to the announcement. The announcement also noted that with the addition of Support for Android Marketplace it was on all platforms including iTunes and the Blackberry App World as a payment method.

Presumably, since the post went live and is all ready to go the official announcement will be coming soon. We will keep our eyes peeled.

Google and Carphone Warehouse working on Nexus Two?

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 01:11 AM PDT

Google CEO Eric Schmidt was pretty clear when he said the company “didn’t have to” make a second Nexus-series smartphone back in July, but according to UK business paper City AM all that has changed.  It’s claimed Google is working with retailer Carphone Warehouse in the UK on the Google Nexus Two.

“It looks like Google is experimenting with the future of its mobile model in the UK. It tried releasing through a single carrier, now it is trying a single retailer.  It could be a solution to the problems it experienced when it tried to sell the Nexus One exclusively through its website. People like to be able to go to a store – this solves that” anonymous source

Unknown at present is who the OEM behind the Google-branded device might be – rumors of Samsung have apparently been debunked – but the sources claim the Nexus Two will run Gingerbread.


ASUS grab Garmin app exclusive on Android

Posted: 27 Oct 2010 12:30 AM PDT

ASUS has apparently secured exclusive rights to use Garmin’s PND software on their Android handsets, promising Garmin branding on the devices themselves.  News of the deal follows confirmation that the Garmin-Asus partnership has been dissolved.

As part of that move, ASUS will return to single-branding its devices, and Garmin will be free to distribute its software to other vendors.  The company apparently plans to release Garmin PND apps into Apple’s App Store and the BlackBerry App World as free downloads.


T-Mobile Set to offer Tethering and WiFi Sharing November 3rd

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 10:15 PM PDT

We know many carriers have a stance on allowing their devices to share it’s connection with other devices. Here in the US it’s a big deal with carriers rarely just allowing it for free. T-Mobile is going from not offering it on many devices, like the tethering ready G2, this November, for a fee – of course.

However, the good news is that T-Mobiles offering of this service is the cheapest in the United States so far. At just $14.99 it only requires you to have an unlimited data plan of $19.99 or higher and a phone that’s 3G or HSPA+ capable. Even Flex Pay customers can get on on this tethering goodness!

Tethering and Wi-Fi Sharing Add-On Feature Launches November 3


On November 3, T-Mobile will launch a tethering and Wi-Fi sharing add-on feature. This feature will allow customers to use their phone as a modem, enabling them to connect a computer or Wi-Fi capable device to the Web using our 3G or HSPA+ network.

By adding this add-on feature, which will cost $14.99/month, customers will gain access to the Web when they are on the go and wherever T-Mobile has coverage. Although most customers will use their laptop to access our network through their device, they will also be able to connect using any Wi-Fi capable device, like gaming devices, non-T-Mobile tablets like the iPad, and music players. Customers can make the phone-as-modem connection using a USB cable, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi sharing.


-Customers must have a 3G or HSPA+ compatible device to utilize the Tethering/Wi-Fi sharing feature.
-Customers must have an Unlimited Web feature with an MRC of $19.95 or higher.
-Customers must add the $14.99 Tethering/Wi-Fi add-on feature.
-This is a separate add-on feature and in addition to the Unlimited Web feature.
-Available for postpaid and FlexPay customers. Note: FlexPay customers will need to change their Unlimited Web feature in order for the new tethering add-on feature to work.

Right fitting

Tethering/Wi-Fi sharing will be ideal for customers who:
-Need occasional access to the Web using a PC or other device.
-Want a connection to the Web on-the-go, wherever T-Mobile has coverage.
-Don't see the need or want the expense of a complete mobile broadband experience, like T-Mobile's webConnect. Note: customers who intend to use their laptops to access the Web frequently, or use a high amount of data, should consider a webConnect plan.

Additional Details

-Customers who purchase a T-Mobile mobile broadband product like the upcoming Galaxy Tab should activate with a webConnect plan to ensure the best experience.
-The set-up process will be determined by the type of device customers own and will be different for every manufacturer.
-The data accumulated while tethering will count towards customers' 5GB data speed reduction threshold limit.
-Because T-Mobile Terms & Conditions have not permitted tethering in the past, those customers who have configured their device for tethering will receive a message on their handset advising them they will need to add the new add-on feature to continue using their device as a modem.


-Be aware dealers can begin selling the Tetherng/Wi-Fi add-on feature beginning November 3.
-Review the Grab & Go for additional information.
-Beginning November 3, refer to policy pages: T-MobileNews > In-Store Polices and Procedures”

PlayStation… Phone? Yes! PlayStation Phone!

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 07:08 PM PDT

So Sony Ericsson is going to blast out a phone branded with none other than the ubiquitous PlayStation marking on it. The greatest controller ever is being applied to a telephone, and not just any telephone, one with Android 3.0 (looking more and more everyday to be the new Gingerbread.) With it there’s be a custom Sony Marketplace for games made just for this device, 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655, 512MB of RAM, 1GB or ROM, and a screen ranging from 4.1 to 3.7 inches. That ugly egg thing in the middle is more than likely a multitouch touchpad.

This child supports microSD cards and not a single Memory Stick. Sad! I used to love to draw the Sisteen Chapel on those massive tiny cards. Bummer man! The images you see above and below are courtesy of a source on Engadget and are still in the prototyping mode, and is thus rather buggy. Looks rather like a 2011 release, but as Joshua Topolsky says, there’s lots of time between now and the winter holidays, so keep your toes crossed!

Does this device remind you of anything? Perhaps it appears to be very similar to the device we spoke about in the post Sony Ericsson Bringing Android 3.0 to Handheld Game Console? Yes I think so.

HTC Desire HD gets first OTA update!

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 06:15 PM PDT

HTC’s brand new HTC Desire HD has just received a new over-the-air update. The update for this phone is named Software Number 1.32.405.3. It is quite a large update so it is recommended to turn on your wifi connection.

According to HTC, the update will focus on “screen control and photo message compatibility enhancements.” This update will not make any improvements to the regular photo quality, but I am not one to complain since it already takes some great pictures with its 8 megapixel camera and Auto focus/dual LED flash. I recommend backing up your device before installing this new update. Enjoy the update HTC Desire HD users!

10,000 lucky developers will be receiving a Google TV courtesy, of Google

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 05:37 PM PDT

As many of you already know, Google TV is already available for purchase through Best Buy and Sony Style Stores along with Now is the chance for any developers to score a free Google TV. Any developer who has interest in developing for the TV has a good chance, so I’d recommend heading over to the Google TV Promotion Site and signing up for the program.

Google started out the promotion by giving away 3,000 Logitech Revue units today at the Adobe Max conference. On another note, Adobe also gave out a Motorola Droid 2 to all of its attendees on Monday. I highly recommend entering the program since Google is giving out so many and hey, its free( and you could be doing us all a favor by helping make Google TV the best possible experience) . Check out our hands-on with the Google TV over at SlashGear.

Evo 4G Update Leaks and gets rooted

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 03:30 PM PDT

An update to the EVO 4G hit the internet recently. As always the people over at XDA have gotten their hands on the software, rooted it, and are currently in the middle of the investigative process to see what has been changed.

According to joeykrim the update included changes to the hboot, Recovery.img, kernel, and many of the .jar files within the overall framework. The update is new and may not yet be ready for the masses so it may be a smart idea to hold off unless you’re feeling adventurous and want to experience for your self and even doing some investigative work.

Barnes & Noble’s “Very Special Event” revealed to be launchpad for “Nook Color”

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 02:08 PM PDT

Hooray! It’s real! Today’s Barnes & Noble “Very Special Event” has turned out to be exactly what many were predicting: the presentation of the color version of the Nook, called correctly: “Nook Color.” It’s focused very hard on the books, magazines, and newspapers aspect, but opens up a bit as they do present the fact that it’s got a web broswer, Office document viewer, games, sharing options through Twitter and Facebook, and even a few exciting apps.

Specs for the hooked wonder are thus: 8.1 x 5.0 x 0.48 inches and 15.8 ounces. microUSB port for book transfer and power charge. 3.5mm jack headset plug. MicroSD expansion card slot. Mono Speaker. 7 inch VividView capacitive touch screen at 1024×600 resolution. 8GB internal memory. 802.11 b/g/n WiFi for ebook purchases and browsing. And a hook! It’s funny how even though this pad is full of new features and a touchscreen and all that good stuff, I find myself enthralled by the idea of that open spot in the lower left, certainly in place for such uses as, say, a public library chaining it up to a reading station?

The device, designed in part by Yves Béhar (industrial designer and founder of Fuseproject,) boasts a 16 million color display courtesy of LG’s Vivid View. Nook Color holds 6 thousand books out of the box. Daily Chef displays all your newly released newspapers, books, and etcetera, and there’s a tiny packet of apps available already including Pandora, music, sudoku, chess, and a few more.

This lovely device will be shipping on or around November 19, available for pre-order right this moment, and it’ll cost $249. Cheep!

Android back on top of WSJ Poll, Fanboys to the rescue

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 01:06 PM PDT

It looks as if the battle continues over the recent Wall Street Journal Poll asking who makes the best mobile OS. Launched late last week, we first say the poll with strong numbers favoring Android which, considering it’s user base, is not surprising that it came first among readers of the site. However, yesterday we reported on Microsoft shooting up in the rankings.

It was believed that some confusion about the meaning of the poll caught distracted readers off guard. Thinking it was an operating systems question and not a mobile OS question, users are more likely to side with Microsoft due to it’s extreme market share.

Well now Android is back on top, most likely thanks to some sketchy hack. But nonetheless we can now put this beside us and reflect on the true meaning on online polls: fanboys will be fanboys and online polls can not be taken too seriously all the time.


Verizon highlights features on the Galaxy Tab to employees

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 12:57 PM PDT

The Samsung Galaxy is coming to the US starting next month. Among the first to carry the tab will be Verizon Wireless, recently a “Top Things to Know” sheet has hit the internet that was given to their sales team in what to tell potential customers who are looking at the Galaxy Tab.

Among the top things to know, according to Verizon, are it’s thin and light design, Android 2.2 Froyo, V CAST syncing, and it’s high-resolution screen.

They even go as far as to compare it against the iPad – which they are currently selling along with their mobile hotspots. Compared to the iPad the Tab offers up multitasking, both a front and rear camera, full flash 10.1 found in Froyo and it’s ability to function in one hand.

Nexus One Forums Closing, Going Read Only November 1

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 12:33 PM PDT

The official Nexus One forum provided by Google will be archived into a read only format starting next month. A popular place for all questions regarding the first Google-made Android device, closing means moving on for the Google team.

We have heard rumors just today about the potential for a future Google device landing this year, but that is only a rumor. Hopefully we will see a new Google made device this year, or at least an announcement. Who doesn’t love always knowing you’ll be one of the first to get a new build of Android – as Nexus One users have over the past few months?

If you have a question, you will want to get it answered before the first comes along and everything is locked.

HTC Droid Incredible HD coming November 23?

Posted: 26 Oct 2010 11:56 AM PDT

We first heard about the Droid Incredible HD about a month ago when the above shot leaked to the internet. Striking a similarity to the EVO 4G it was said to be coming to the Verizon network this year. Now it’s likely that it will be hitting Verizon just in time for Thanksgiving.

Featuring a large 4.3 inch display, LED flash, front facing camera and a 8MP rear facing camera it’s pretty similar to the EVO 4G. We’re not sure if this will be running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network or not or even if it will be DROID branded. If not, expect to see a lot of Bing!

November 23rd marks the week before thanksgiving, setting it to launch just in time for Black Friday 0 the biggest retail shopping day in the US. More word will likely come as we near and progress through November so stay tuned!
