Acer Liquid A1 hits FCC with AT&T 3G support

Acer Liquid A1 hits FCC with AT&T 3G support

Only the other day we were watching the Acer Liquid A1 - the company's first Android smartphone - being joyously unboxed in a couple of videos, and now there's talk of the handset landing on AT&T at some point.  The Liquid A1 has been spotted running through the FCC's gauntlet of wireless testing fire, complete with support for the 850 and 1900 bands.  They just so happen to be the 3G frequencies AT&T use in the US.

Now there's no official word from either Acer or AT&T, and of course the FCC has no say in the matter either, so we're just speculating about the Acer Liquid's eventual carrier destination.  However AT&T are yet to release an Android device, and with their rivals in the US beginning to gather momentum with the platform we wouldn't be surprised to find that they were shopping around.

HTC HD2 officially confirmed for US in early 2010 on “major carrier”

No great surprise here - after all, HTC CEO Peter Chou already exclusively confirmed it to us back in October - but HTC have officially announced that the HTC HD2 Windows Phone will be headed to the US in early 2010.  According to a new press release today, the HD2 "will be available with a major carrier in the US in early 2010"; previous leaks have suggested T-Mobile will be the lucky network to offer the smartphone.

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

As Motorola have found over the past couple of years, it's taking an increasing amount to get geeks and gadget lovers to stand up and pay attention to a new cellphone. Right now, one sure-fire way of doing that is by launching an Android device, and so that's what the ailing mobile giant has done in the shape of the Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US). Not only does the CLIQ promise to make a splash among Android handsets, it also marks the debut of Motorola's attempt to corral social networking into a mobile device. In our review we'll not only be looking at the CLIQ hardware, as Motorola's first-generation Android smartphone, but at MOTOBLUR and its potential beyond the CLIQ. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ preorders taken from October 19th

T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ preorders taken from October 19th

Back when people were desperate to get their hands on the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, a pre-order event seemed a reasonable way to stoke the hype.  Now that we're a few models down the line, T-Mobile USA's pre-announcement for a pre-order of the Motorola CLIQ smacks vaguely of desperation.  As of October 19th, existing customers of the carrier will be able to order a CLIQ for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement, though they won't actually get their new phone until November 2nd when it goes on sale generally.

Nokia Maemo 5 Apparently Perfectly Acceptable For Carrier Customizations

Nokia Maemo 5 Apparently Perfectly Acceptable For Carrier Customizations

It's only been a day since we reported that Nokia was planning on keeping carrier branding as far away from the N900 and Maemo-enabled devices as possible, but it looks like all of that just changed. In a big way. And now, it seems that Nokia is taking a stand in the other direction, leaving us to wonder what the deal really is. Was our excitement misplaced? Or is Nokia just trying to calm the waters, before any real announcements regarding the upcoming N900's release on carriers is released?

Public Intelligence releases Android threat warning from Homeland Security and the FBI

Public Intelligence releases Android threat warning from Homeland Security and the FBI

There's a report out there today appearing with the public dissemination of nearly-secret information site Public Intelligence that has the USA-centered Homeland Security organization and FBI showing Android as a threat for Malware nationwide. This report shows that because Android 2.3 Gingerbread it still a widespread operating system, Google's own mobile system is a threat to citizens on a level that deserves attention. That's Android 2.3.3 through 2.3.7, released in 2011, and the government suggests that a change needs to be made.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 50 2011

Welcome to the SlashGear Week in Review for week 50, which means we only have two weeks left in 2011! As usual, a lot has happened this week. HP had a fire sale for more TouchPads on eBay and sold out in minutes. The TouchPads sold for $99 for the 16GB versions and $149 for the 32GB with stock selling out in minutes. We learned early in the week that a pair of drunken RIM executives were placed in cuffs during a commercial flight after they got drunk and caused trouble. The pair of execs later escaped from those cuffs by chewing through them.

Conflict Materials in my smartphone? Hope for Congo says yes

Conflict Materials in my smartphone? Hope for Congo says yes

It's a risky business you enter in when you purchase a product, and not just when you're rolling with NIKE with their child labor-made shoes or that lovely diamond you've got around your neck mined by an enslaved people in Africa - what we're now to understand is that its possible, though not confirmed, that the vast majority of the top-name manufacturers your gadgets come from are involved in, in one way or another, the "conflict materials" trade. You may know this term from the movie Blood Diamond, released a few years ago starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Djimon Hounsou, or Kanye West's song "Diamonds" from right around the same time as the release of that movie - the absolutely evil conditions you saw or heard in those bits of media are very likely continuing through to the bits that make up your favorite MP3 player, speakers, and tablets you're using right this second.
