SMS Messages Sent to Random Recipients Bug on Android Phones Being Ignored by Google

I thought I was just going crazy! Apparently more people than just myself are having trouble with text messages from random people. This new bug causes SMS messages to apparently randomly be sent to the wrong recipient. It's not clear yet it this is regulated to people on contact lists or if the messages are being sent completely randomly. The original developer who first reported this bug says that the messages appear to have been sent successfully to their intended recipient, but that they're actually being sent to Recipient X!

HTC Evo Shift 4G Shown as Vertical Slider in Sprint Security Paperwork

An insider at Sprint has just passed TalkAndroid a bit of a future plan for the soon-to-be-released HTC Evo Shift 4G. The fun thing about this shot is that the image shows the phone to be a vertical slider. This is more than likely either a mistake (as there's been so much news about it being a horizontal slider) or they just placed a dummy pic in the one-sheet to get it to their workers faster (assuming they didn't have a real legit pic for some odd reason.) Even if it turns out to be just a mixup, still interesting, no?

NAND ROM Android install comes to HTC HD2

The HTC HD2 smartphone originally came with Windows Mobile 6.5 onboard, though it was spied on a few occasions running Windows Phone 7. I would bet that there are bunches of people out there that wish they had purchased an Android device instead of Windows Mobile. If you are one of the folks that wants Android on the device and the current process to put Android on the phone aren’t working well for you, DFT has the perfect fix.

Maxthon mobile app for Android gets multi-platform sync

Earlier this month Maxthon mobile launched for the first time. If you missed that launch, Maxthon Mobile is a new browser for Android devices that lets the user do things like sync bookmarks, history and more form your desktop with your mobile device using cloud services. One of the cooler features of the browser is that it allows the user to navigate by designing your own gestures that can be drawn with a finger on the screen to control the menus and buttons on the browser.

Ramos W15, W12 and W10 tablets teased ahead of CES 2011

Ramos has teased three new tablets set to make their debut at CES 2011 next week, one of which will use Rockchip's new RK2918 SoC which we saw benchmarked earlier this week. The Ramos W15 has an 8-inch "high resolution" 16:9 aspect display and the new RK2918 ARM Cortex-A8 based processor, while the Ramos W12 makes do with the Cortex-A9 SoC and Mali 400 GPU, and has a 4:3 aspect 8-inch capacitive touchscreen. Finally, there's the Ramos W10, with the same Cortex-A9 as the W12, paired with 512MB of RAM and ROM, WiFi, Bluetooth, a gravity sensor and Android 2.2. No word on pricing at this stage.

HTC Thunderbolt specs leak from German retailer? [Updated]

Specifications for the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt have purportedly leaked, with a German retailer listing the smartphone in their systems. According to the screenshot sent to HTCInside, the smartphone - which so far we've seen with Verizon branding for the US - will also be headed to German carriers O2, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone, all of whom have fledgling LTE networks of their own. As for the specs, the Thunderbolt is listed as having Qualcomm's 1.2GHz MSM8960 dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front for high-res video calls. There's also WiFi b/g/n and supposedly microSDXC memory card support for up to 128GB cards. More specs below. The supposed details of the HTC Thunderbolt are not confirmed, and so we should be taking them with the necessary pinch of salt, but if true this could definitely be the LTE phone to take on Tegra 2 challengers like the LG Optimus 2X. Update: As we suggested, this isn't necessarily all true. The MSM8960 supposedly found inside the Thunderbolt isn't expected to arrive until 2012, Qualcomm has previously said. Either the chip has been misnamed on the spec sheet, or it's a sign that this isn't entirely legitimate.

Notion Ink Demos Adam Panel System and Desktop in Eden

This video is clearly a response to the fans of the Adam across the web that have been bothered by the slightly less-than-perfect demo videos of the Eden system inside. This video is the result of a direct HDMI out from Adam captured on Notion Ink's unnamed computer. This video shows of the desktop of the system as well as more about the leaves (the cool panels showing each of your different app widgets, etc.) They say Eden presents "a new way of multi-tasking" that allows minimal suffering because of having too much running at once. Leaves across the universe for great justice!
