The lack of support from everyone involved with this phone has been the focal point of many people losing faith in Samsung. It’ll probable never see Android 2.0+ even though there is a petition going around to make this happen. Regardless, we are hearing word that the OTA to 1.6 has started to arrive on a few Behold ll’s.
Android 1.6 offers a whole world of possibilities for the Behold ll. along with this update to 1.6, Samsung is including Google Voice, Google Maps with navigation as well as the Swype keyboard. There are other various bug fixes thrown in also. Even with these extra goodies being tossed in, I still don’t see many users being happy about this whole situation.
T-Mobile USA's version of the Samsung Galaxy S, the Samsung Vibrant, has apparently leaked, albeit only in press image form. According to Cell Phone Signal these are preview shots of the Super AMOLED smartphone, complete with T-Mobile branding and a tweaked control row underneath the touchscreen.
That’s right folks, the galaxy S has been rooted. It’s not freed from its stock shackles. Soon there will be custom ROM’s, kernels and other things being released. And dare I say it, Froyo? This process looks pretty straight forward but some users have been reporting issues with getting it to work.
We're fans of any application that makes our lives, in some way or another, easier. And, as we showed you not too long ago with our hands-on time with Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile application for Android, we'd say that the app does indeed fit into that little corner of our tech necessities. Then again, that may just mean we watch TV too much. Either way, we're happy to announce that, beginning June 22nd, you'll be able to get in on the goodness for yourself.
If you’re a diehard T-Mobile fan, you might be aware of their recent Twitter game. We are now on the third clue on which device they might unveil real soon. So far, all the evidence has lead Tmonews (and us) to believe that the mystery device in question is non other than the Samsung Galaxy S.

If you’re into eReaders this is double the good news for you. Not only has Barnes & Noble introduced a new version of their Android powered Nook but they have lowered the price of their existing models. And to top it all off, they have added a new update that adds news features and allows you to have free AT&T hotspot service.
That’s right folks, the EVO can now take advantage of wireless N technologies. Thanks to the great development community the EVO now has this great new feature. Recently, there have been a few complaints that the EVO had problems keeping a strong Wi-Fi connection, hopefully this addition will sure that problem up a bit.
Although this handset just hit AT&T stores, it’s already up for sale. New customers can now head to Dell’s online store and purchase the Aria for free. This offer also includes free shipping and free activation.
Ready to start the speculation train? We just told you a bit ago that the @DroidLanding Twitter account is, indeed, real, and that it's spouting off rumors from this point on to let people get in on the Droid X action before anyone else. Coincidentally enough, one of the first tweets that account actually posted said that the Droid X has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Interesting, yes?
