Android Honeycomb Event Announced by Google

Publishers have just been invited to an event by Google to be held next Wednesday in California. They've promised to bring "an in-depth look at Honeycomb, Android ecosystem news, and some hands-on demos! " Sounds fantastic - we'll be there with bells on!

Why Honeycomb will Work on Android Handsets as Well

Today there's some talk going around, some words being pushed that are re-stirring the sweet rumors that is Honeycomb supporting smartphones as well as tablets. Android 3.0 Honeycomb is a version of the OS created specifically to work well with larger devices, especially tablets. What's been discovered today is the fact that although Honeycomb will open in its default resolution of 1280x768 pixels in WXGA, changing the screen setting (in the emulator running the Honeycomb SDK released a couple days ago) to WVGA, a different shell user interface is launched, this one lacking basically everything on the homescreen with launcher crashing soon afterward.

LG Optimus 2X Full Walkthrough and Hands On

One of the many phones the crew here on Android Community and our sister site SlashGear got our hands on back a few weeks ago at CES 2011 was none other than the LG Optimus 2X. It seems today that there's lots of coverage of this phone flying around today, and back when we released that video (on SlashGear,) didn't also post it to Android Community - so you might never have seen it! Now we've got an extra couple of minutes here on a relatively slow news day, so we thought we'd give you an awesome refresher. Behold the awesome power of the LG Optimus 2X!

Verizon Axes Top-Tier Smartphone Rebates Altogether

Word on the street is that Verizon plans on getting rid of their rebate program for all phones costing $150 and above. What does this mean?! It means that while at the moment when you walk into a store and see a phone that costs $400, $300 with mail-in-rebate, in the future you'll just see the phone for a $300. Why haven't they done this sooner?

Motorola Atrix 4G Promo Video Released, Gets Us Pumped Up

As Motorola is prone to do, they've released a lovely introduction video to their newest smartphone, the Atrix 4G. It makes us feel like there's more to this phone than just a speedy experience. In fact, they do say it's the WORLDS most POWERFUL smartphone, so we hope to see that backed up, but this commercial shows more than just a phone, it shows a host of docks into which the phone will be able to be plugged, including most importantly behind a PC and in front of a giant television.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G SignUp Page Live on T-Mobile

T-Mobile is ramping up their efforts to promote the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 4G with a signup page on their website.

If you're already a customer, you'll have to pay $49.99 and commit to the two-year activation with $29.99 a month data as well.

Nexus S Heading to AT&T Next?

It appears that PocketNow has some insight into the world of Google and their distribution of the newest Google phone - the Nexus S. As far as they (and now we) can tell, three versions of this phone have made their way through the FCC: the original GT-i9020, then the GT-i9020T and GT-i9023. Evan Blass of Pocketnow did a bit of investigating and has discovered a fourth, which thanks to the Bluetooth SIG, he's been able to identify a model that's not appeared in any other databases - GT-i9020A.
