Verizon Wireless customers who thought they were getting a Droid Razr HD last week will have to wait a few more months.
Moto now is expected to release the Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD in October, according to tech site HotHardware. A source told the blog that the date may shift either direction and largely revolves around the sales of the current models.
Presumably, the two Android 4.0 handsets will offer identical hardware save for the extended battery life of the Maxx edition. Said hardware is rumored to include a 720x1,280-pixel HD display, 1.5GHz … Read more
Though it doesn't boast any flagship specs, the ZTE Grand X is one of the more ambitious phones coming out of the Chinese phone manufacturer yet. CNET UK recently reviewed the handset, and was pleased to see that it ran a skinless version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, it sports a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and comes preloaded with Nvidia's Tegra Zone gaming portal.
There are some pitfalls, however. The Grand X's 4.3-inch screen is unresponsive, and its 5-megapixel camera has noticeable shutter lag. And despite ZTE touting that the … Read more
Almost five months after posting a teaser video on Youtube for its G10 xs , Archos is ready to launch its latest stab at the tablet market. A teaser image highlighting the tablet's thinness was posted on Archos Worldwide's Facebook page with a caption saying to look for the launch announcement in three weeks.
The G10 xs is rumored to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and have microSD and Mini-HDMI connections. The tablet, which could be the thinnest tablet yet with a 7.6mm thickness, could rival the Asus Transformer Infinity with its similar keyboard dock accessory. The G10 xs appears to be aimed at the higher-end tablet market with its eye-catching design and already looks like an upgrade from Archos' most recent effort, the 101 G9 Turbo tablet.
Look for more information from CNET by the proposed announcement date.… Read more
Samsung has rolled out the Ice Cream Sandwich flavor of Android to a couple of its Galaxy Tab tablets.
Android 4.0 is now available to owners of the 10.1-inch and 7.0 Plus models in the U.K., and can be downloaded over the air or installed via Samsung's Kies software application. But the company is so far mum about the rest of its tablet lineup.
Those of you who like a little Ice Cream Sandwich with your Raspberry Pi seem due for just such a treat.
Raspberry Pi is a $35 credit card-sized device that functions as a tiny computer. Outfitted with an Ethernet port, an HDMI port, two USB ports, and an SD card slot, it's powered by a 700MHz ARM chip and comes with 256MB of RAM.
Sony has not completely ruled out an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its 2011 Xperia line, despite what the company may have told you just days ago.
We know that T-Mobile would add the stylus-toting Samsung Galaxy Note to its roster, but now we have a release date and pricing.
The jumbo phone lands at T-Mobile on August 8 for $249.99, after a $50 mail-in-rebate and with a new two-year service agreement.
T-Mobile's version of the phone, which debuted in the U.S. on AT&T, features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with NFC and Android Beam, a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture and playback. Battery life balances … Read more
Sony, as is typical for this time of year, has refreshed its Walkman lineup for the fall. Take a look at our breakdown of the new devices:
Sony F800 series Android Walkman At first glance, Sony's F800 Walkman, due in the U.S. this August, looks uninspiring, but it actually packs a feature never before seen in a Walkman. We'll discuss that later.
First, the basics. The Walkman F series features a 3.5-inch multitouch-capable LCD screen and a Tegra 2 (dual-core) processor running Android 4.0. In its press release, the company wastes no time mentioning Google Play and Music Unlimited support. Unfortunately, it appears Sony decided to play capacities conservatively with 16GB ($269) and 32GB ($299) options (Europe gets an additional 8GB model). CNET queried Sony as to why it didn't go with a 64GB option F series for music aficionados, and a representative said that "if there was expressed demand for it, we could consider it, but it was not offered at this time due to current demand statistics."
The F's aesthetics look typical for Sony's current design mantra: minimalism across the board, thin profile (2.23 inches wide by 4.5 inches high by 0.3 inches deep), and a thoughtful throwback Walkman logo to please the reminiscent. … Read more
