Verizon Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Devour and LG VS750 tipped incoming

Details of Verizon's upcoming smartphones have leaked, and if you've been waiting for a new WebOS, Android or Windows Mobile device from the carrier then you're in luck.  The Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Devour A555 and LG VS750 have all been tipped as arriving over the next few months by PhoneArena's tipsters, though right now details on all three are reasonably minimal.  It's unclear, for instance, what the difference between the Sprint Palm Pre and the Verizon Palm Pre Plus might be.

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC's device line-up for the first half of 2010 has apparently leaked, courtesy of xda-developers, after a prototype brochure fell into the wrong hands.  The range consists of five Android devices and three Windows Mobile handsets, including the so-called hero model of 1H 2010, the Android-based HTC Bravo.  The Bravo will pack the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the HTC HD2 along with a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen and HD 720p video capture.  Full line-up details after the cut.

Updated: We've contacted HTC for a comment, and unsurprisingly they're not confirming anything.  "We cannot comment on speculation or rumour," HTC tell us, "but we’re excited about our upcoming roadmap and encourage you to watch this space."

HTC HD2 1.48 WWE firmware gets video demo: speedier and more stable

When it came to bugs and glitches, our experience with the HTC HD2 was generally uninterrupted; a few on-screen keyboard slow-downs were pretty much all we observed.  Still, other users have reported more significant issues, and so HTC have pushed out a new firmware version for the smartphone, build 1.48 WWE, which attempts to address the problems.  Xmoo - who happens to have two HD2's - put together a quick comparison video highlighting the improvements.

TerreStar Genus satellite phone clears FCC on way to AT&T

Satellite phones are, perhaps unsurprisingly given the costs usually incurred, yet to make any significant inroads into the mainstream cellphone market, but that's set to change (perhaps) with the Elektrobit TerreStar Genus.  Announced in October along with a partnership with AT&T, the dual-mode HSPA/satellite handset has been spotted clearing the FCC in preparation for its tipped Q1 2010 launch.

HTC HD2 multitouch API offers true gesture support [Video]

HTC's injection of multitouch support into the HTC HD2 is one of the things that most impressed us about the smartphone, but so far the company have been reluctant to share the magic with third-party developers.  One of the oft-missed benefits of Windows Mobile, however, is a huge developer community who'll go in and dig out what they're not being given, and xda-developers' l3v5y has come up with an API for multitouch.

8-10 Acer smartphones in 2010: “more balanced” between Android and WinMo

We were less than enamoured by Acer's tubby little Liquid A1 smartphone when we had a brief play earlier in the month, but if the touchscreen chunkster has left you similarly underwhelmed, fear not.  According to Aymar de Lencquesaing, head of Acer's phone unit, the company is planning 8 to 10 new smartphones for 2010, and they expect the balance between Android and Windows Mobile in the new range to be "much more balanced".
