Android 3.0 Gingerbread detailed: 720p displays & intentional fragmentation in Q4 [Updated]

New Android 3.0 Gingerbread details have emerged, courtesy of notorious mobile industry insider Eldar Murtazin of mobile-review and his Russian-language Digestive podcast.  According to Murtazin - handily translated by UnwiredView - we can expect Gingerbread in mid-October 2010 with the first handsets preinstalled with the new OS arriving in November/December.  They'll be impressive beasts, too; minimum hardware requirements are apparently a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 3.5-inch screen or larger, with up to 1,280 x 760 resolution displays supported on 4-inch or bigger handsets.

Verizon has officially acknowledged the Motorola DROID X, with a new teaser page that suggests the touchscreen smartphone is "coming soon".  Accompanying the image - which suggests the DROID X will slot in-between the original DROID and DROID Incredible - are a few basic specifications: a 4.3-inch, 720p capable display and an HDMI output.

Nokia N8 first-impressions [Video]

Nokia N8 first-impressions [Video]

Nokia's N8 remains one of the more interesting smartphones of 2010, and we leapt at a chance to have an extended play with the Symbian^3 handset as it made its debut in London this morning. Toting a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with multitouch support, 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 720p HD video recording and a Xenon flash, and a slick anodised aluminium chassis, our biggest question was whether Nokia's OS fettling had been enough to make the N8 competitive with what's an increasingly competitive smartphone market. Check out our impressions - and some hands-on video - after the cut.

720p HD for Nexus One closes iPhone 4 gap [Video]

720p HD for Nexus One closes iPhone 4 gap [Video]

With the iPhone 4 and Motorola XT720 both coming to market with native 720p HD video capture, it's time for the Nexus One to catch up or give up; happily, thanks to xda-developers, a new firmware hack can grant the Google Phone high-def camcorder skills.  Currently available for Nexus One handsets running Android 2.1, and with a test version for those running 2.2 Froyo on their phone, it allows for recording at up to 1280 x 720 resolution.

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

It takes a brave company - some might cruelly say foolish - to launch a touchscreen-centric smartphone on the same day that the next-gen iPhone is expected to debut, but Motorola are obviously confident enough in the new Motorola XT720 that they're willing to take on Cupertino. Based on the MOTOROI handset that launched a few months back in Korea, the XT720 could be summed up as a Motorola DROID without the QWERTY keyboard (and just 10.9mm thick as a result), though there's also an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Xenon flash to sweeten the deal.
