Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

The second of three declared versions of the internationally popular Samsung dual-core Android device, the Galaxy S II from AT&T, is set to be the only one of three to have the original 4.3-inch display. Now why, you might ask, would they do such a thing? I think the answer may be staring you right in the face with its own fantastically cute face: that's my daughter under the puzzle piece lockscreen of the AT&T Infuse 4G, a device not unlike the Galaxy S II that came out quite a few weeks ago with the same 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display you're now seeing on the WiMAX and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S II. What AT&T has done here is to give you a choice of devices, both of them with Super AMOLED Plus displays, but one with a larger display and a smaller processor, the other with a smaller display and a larger processor. Choices!

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Hands-On [Video]

This Tuesday on a rather sunny post-hurricane NYC afternoon, Samsung announced their newest version of the top-selling Android smartphone, in this iteration called the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. We've seen just a little bit of this device in the past, it having had a tiny outing earlier today, press shots, and a family outing having taken place last week. What makes this new device unique compared to the original version is a handful of new features, the most obvious of these being the larger 4.52-inch display.

Samsung Galaxy S II Verizon Model Possibly Axed

Samsung Galaxy S II Verizon Model Possibly Axed

It appears that the largest network in the United States will not be carrying the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone, a flagship device for the manufacturer and one of the best selling phones in the world at the moment. As the Wall Street Journal reports, having spoken with "people familiar with the plans," each of the other "big four" carriers will be carrying the device inside September, blue, yellow, and pink being the lot of them, but apparently Verizon has declined to move forward with the Samsung dual-core device. Samsung's Kim Titus has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S II would indeed be unveiled in the USA next week, but declined to comment any further on the group's plans for carriers.

NVIDIA Web-Based Tegra Zone Launched [Hands-On]

Today the folks at NVIDIA have announced officially their web-based version of NVIDIA Tegra Zone, a Tegra 2 dual-core tablet and super phone processor specific portal for apps, news, and news about apps.

It's like a guide for ultimate dual-core wins.

Iconia Tab A100 Review

Iconia Tab A100 Review

It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market. What we've got now is only the second 7-inch tablet on the market and the first one to carry any version of Honeycomb. Furthermore, this A100 7-inch Acer tablet is the world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, 3.2 being the first tablet-oriented Google mobile OS made for tablets of under 10 inches in size. This tablet is not meant to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and neither this nor the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet are likely to be winning the tablet fashion show, but what we DO have here is a nice little "tween" sized Android device toting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core processor - will it carve its own piece out of the tablet market pie due to it's relatively unique nature?

HTC Holiday Prototype Revealed

HTC Holiday Prototype Revealed

In a series of photos taken by a member of XDA Developers forums, we're here able to see what may well be the upcoming Android device by the name of HTC Holiday. What we can see here is that the smartphone has a massive "CALIFORNIA" sticker or case on the back, this leading us to believe that either the phone will be released with different cases in different regions of the USA OR someone slapped a nasty ol' sticker on the thing. In addition to this, we're seeing a rather thin device with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.5-inch qHD display at 960 x 540 pixel resolution and a very possible AT&T release.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Texas Instruments Collaboration Promised for Fall Rollout

Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Texas Instruments Collaboration Promised for Fall Rollout

Before we begin, note that we said this same thing back in June on the first. It appears that Texas Instruments will be first in efforts to graphically represent their support for Android's newest operating system, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a system Google promises will meld the handset version and the tablet version of the Android mobile OS together with two layers of lovely chocolate sandwich bits. What Texas Instruments has done today is show one frame of a slideshow (shown below) to publishers that its representatives are calling a promotional image that Texas Instruments will use for events "in the fall." This more than likely means that Ice Cream Sandwich will indeed be released before the end of the year and that we'll see some powerful new chipsets coming out with TI before 2012 arrives as well.
