After teasing the Samsung DoubleTime and Samsung Captivate Glide at CTIA last month, AT&T is finally sharing the news we all want to hear: when the phones will arrive, and for how much.… Read more
It's been a while since AT&T has had a higher-end, QWERTY smartphone in its lineup, but keyboard-loving customers should start warming up their thumbs for the upcoming Samsung Captivate Glide.
Announced at CTIA 2011, the Captivate Glide sports a slider design that combines a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen with a four-row QWERTY keyboard. The Android Gingerbread device also rocks Nvidia's 1GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video support, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, and enterprise-friendly features.
Though the carrier has yet to announce a release date and pricing, we suspect that its … Read more
Samsung still isn't releasing information about the pricing or availability of the forthcoming Samsung DoubleTime, but the company did bring the phone to our CNET offices in New York for some glamor shots.
What makes this Android 2.2 Froyo handset distinct is its double-screen design. Instead of sliding out a keyboard for this text-centric phone, you flip it open like a book to read the screen on the inside. A razor-thin phone this will not be.
I nearly did a double take when lifting AT&T's HTC Vivid out of its cardboard box. It's one of the first HTC phones in a long time whose form looked cheap to my eyes.
Shiny black plastic all around with just a thin metal plate on the battery cover, the handset lacks the thoughtful build quality typical of most HTC phones, and very unlike recent phones like the HTC Rhyme, the Evo Design 4G, the Amaze 4G, and so on.
Now, perhaps this isn't exactly fair. After all, I argued with myself, doesn't substance … Read more
Originally known as the Vigor, the Rezound is HTC's stateside answer to Europe and Asia's HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio, which CNET got a chance to see in early October at CTIA.
The Rezound, which features the same integration with the Beats headphones as the Sensation XL, will run on Verizon's ultrafast 4G LTE network. In addition, it's packing a 4.3-inch 720p HD display, which should make mincemeat out of … Read more
As evidenced in the photos obtained by Pocketnow, the Android-powered phone takes design cues from the Droid Incredible, as well as the Sensation XE. Bearing the carrier's red-and-black color scheme, the back of the smartphone also has the Beats Audio logo, indicating an enhanced audio experience.
Specifications look to include dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 4.3-inch HD (1,280x720-pixel) display, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and an 8-megapixel camera. Additional details for the HTC phone should include 4G LTE support, a … Read more
The replacement car seat headrest features an integrated full-color, 7-inch capacitive touch screen that allows rear-seat passengers to interact with the Android 2.3 operating system. When asked why Gingerbread was used rather than the newer and tablet-optimized Honeycomb (or Ice Cream Sandwich) versions of the Android OS, Vizualogic stated that the the unit would be updated to version 3.1 or better by the time it reaches production. However, … Read more
Most Android smartphones sold for $100 or less are basic hardware shells that do an adequate job, but won't blow you away with their features. Not so the HTC Evo Design 4G. Sprint's fifth member of the Evo family is a slightly smaller (but hardly tiny) handset that's beautifully designed and imbued with a robust set of features, including 4G speeds and a decent front-facing camera.
The good: The HTC Evo Design 4G has an understated black-on-black design, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and two cameras, and is a world phone. It comes with 8GB of memory preinstalled.
The bad: The stubborn back cover is hard to remove and the speakerphone could be better. A dedicated hardware shutter button wouldn't go amiss.
The bottom line: The HTC Evo Design 4G gives you a lot of smartphone for the money--fast 4G speeds, a good camera, a strong processor, and a sophisticated design. It's an excellent choice for Sprint customers, except those who are specifically looking for a dual-core phone.
Though HTC has yet to formally unveil the smartphone, it appears that select Verizon retail stores have begun promoting its next 4G LTE handset, the HTC Rezound.
Over the weekend, DroidLife received photos from readers showing the in-store ads for the smartphone. It's widely believed that the HTC will introduce the Rezound at an event in New York on Thursday. … Read more
November 6 is shaping up to be a big day for AT&T, as the carrier will release its first 4G LTE smartphones and expand its LTE network to nine additional markets on that day.
When it comes to devices, customers will be able to choose from the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket or the HTC Vivid, both of which are compatible with AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE networks and run Android Gingerbread. … Read more
