T-Mobile myTouch 3G in stores today

Today marks the day that Android fans on T-Mobile have been waiting for. The carrier has officially launched its second, and highest-end Android-powered smartphone called the myTouch 3G. The handset can be purchased now. T-Mobile isn't merely tossing the handset onto store shelves and running a few adds. To celebrate the highly customizable nature of the phone T-Mobil is having 100 skydivers jump over San Francisco dressed as different personalities.

White Samsung Galaxy I7500 spotted in wild

It's been a while since we've heard much news about the Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500, so it's a pleasure to see these live photos of the white version of the handset.  Rumored for some time, but until now unsighted in the wild, the images landed in the grateful hands of Arne over at the::unwired. According to his tipster, the white Galaxy you see here will be identical, feature-wise, to its black counterpart.  That means Android OS 1.5 Cupcake, quadband GSM, triband UMTS/HSPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth and GPS, together with a 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED touchscreen and 5-megapixel camera.  The Galaxy's 3.5mm headphone socket isn't such a big deal now that the Hero has arrived with the same thing, but it's still something we're glad to see. Worth noting is that, no matter how much we might like it to be, this isn't a leak of the Samsung GT-I5700 Galaxy Lite, just a white version of the original Android smartphone.  Nothing definite regarding launch, but it's tipped to hit O2 Germany first before spreading to other European carriers.

Android Sholes smartphone bound for Verizon

Verizon seems set to corner the smartphone market by offering all of the popular devices it can get its hands on. The mobile provider will get the Pre next year and has a slew of new Android devices head its way. According to a leak, the Motorola Sholes smartphone powered by Android will hit the Verizon network. We already have seen images of the Sholes device around the net for a while now. The only thing I don’t care for is the look of the keyboard.

Android heads to HD waters

Android was originally just a smartphone OS, but since it originally debuted on the T-Mobile G1 it has grown and is being eyed for other uses as well. Electronics makers are going to put the OS on PMPs, netbooks, home automation devices and much more. MIPS Technologies has announced that it is developing extensions for Android that will allow the OS to support HD video displays. The extension will allow Android to be ported to devices like Blu-ray players, HDTVs, and Set-top boxes.
