Thanks to new leaked images, we now have a good idea as to what to expect from the 10-inch HTC Puccini tablet when it finallyarrives at AT&T this summer.
Boy Genius Report is offering a glimpse of the front and back of the device. Not much is confirmed by the pictures, but we do know the tablet will feature an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, stereo speakers, and perhaps a textured finish on the back side. The HTC Scribe also makes an appearance in one image, all but confirming the digital stylus technology for the unit.
Twelve South, maker of iDevice cases with a literary leaning, is bringing its bookishness to the iPhone 4.
Like its cousins, the BookBook for MacBook, MacBook Air, and iPad, the new BookBook for iPhone is a hardback distressed-leather case with a leather spine that resembles a vintage book. It's also a pocket-size wallet that can hold your driver's license, debit card, cash, receipts, and Mensa membership card along with your phone.
The new BookBook for iPhone is available now at the Apple Store and TwelveSouth's Web site for $59.99. It's designed exclusively for the iPhone 4 (AT&T and Verizon) and won't fit the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or iPod Touch. That means owners of those devices will have a tougher time pretending to be reading "Anna Karenina" when they're really playing Angry Birds.
The first images of AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II handset, the Attain, have landed online. Boy Genius Report has obtained multiple pictures of the SGH-I927 smartphone, which confirm a sliding QWERTY design and an 8-megapixel camera. The device should run the latest version of Android in 2.3.4 Gingerbread, however, it's expected to also feature Samsung's TouchWiz 4.0 user interface. Some of the photos given to BGR show the phone notching high marks on a pair of benchmark tests, something that will surely appeal to tech enthusiasts.
Astute readers will recognize that the … Read more

Sprint shed more light on the future of its Direct Connect service today when it announced two CDMA devices that will support the push-to-talk (PTT) feature. The Kyocera DuraMax and DuraCore will launch in the fourth quarter of this year with a yet-to-be-named Motorola handset set following shortly after.
From the outside, the Kyocera handsets should appeal to long-time Nextel fans. The flip designs sport rubber skins for extra durability and both devices are certified to military specifications for dust, shock, and vibration. The DuraMax goes a little further by adding protection for blowing rain, temperature extremes, and immersion in water. According to Kyocera, it will withstand a dunking in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. … Read more
Of all 4G mobile Internet access devices, the Clear 4G+ modem is arguably the best deal. It's neither the fastest nor the cheapest, but it offers consistent performance (as tested around California) and, most importantly, comes with affordable unlimited data plans.
Unfortunately, as a modem, it provides Internet access only to the single computer it's plugged into. Now that's about to change. Clear announced today the Clear 4G-Apollo, a mobile router that offers similar 4G Internet access to up to eight Wi-Fi clients.
Like all mobile hot-spot routers, the Apollo connects to a cellular wireless network by … Read more
Atrix 4G owners will get their update starting today, while Inspire 4G users will receive an update in August. The Atrix 4G update will also let users download apps from third-party stores. Due to different manufacturer skins and other performance issues, AT&T has not revealed when the rest of the aforementioned devices will get their updates.
The other Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone not on the list is the HTC Status, which is AT&T's first Android 2.3 smartphone.… Read more
Even though the LG Thrill 4G was announced in March, we're just now getting confirmation about its price. AT&T has told us that the LG Thrill 4G will be selling for $99.99 after a two-year service agreement. As for availability, well, we still don't know the exact date, but we expect that to be announced shortly.
As a reminder, the LG Thrill 4G is essentially the U.S. version of the LG Optimus 3D. Indeed, it'll have a glasses-free display similar to the HTC Evo 3D, and will launch with Android 2.2 (We … Read more
Nokia may have announced a dismal earnings report this week, but two of its latest N-series phones have cleared the Federal Communications Commission. The Nokia N9, as you may remember, showed a bizarre twist in the company's Windows Phone 7 plans by sporting the latest version of the MeeGo OS. The N5, on the other hand, is a Symbian-based smartphone, and probably won't land at a U.S. carrier. Also on the list are the previously mentioned HTC Puccini Tablet, the BlackBerry Bold Touch, and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro.
Because the FCC has to certify every phone … Read more
LG's smartphone lineup for the rest of the year has found its way online, and as one might expect, there's plenty of Android on the horizon. Pocketnow has obtained the images and details for at least six devices scheduled to drop between now and December. Based on these early specifications, it's becoming increasingly obvious that LG likes to cater to new smartphone buyers. Yet, that's not to say it doesn't have any serious contenders in its lineup.
