Sony Nypon rumored to come to market as “Xperia P”

Sony's got a pretty wide range of Android phones on offer at the moment, and that doesn't look to change any time soon. Just last week we saw some spy shots of the LT22i model, codenamed the Nypon. GSM Arena reports that the device may come to market as the Xperia P, as the other recently leaked smartphone, the Kumquat, may be labelled the Xperia U. Granted, these are probably better than naming your smartphone after an obscure Chinese fruit, but I was certainly hoping for better differentiation as Sony readies its newly integrated brand.

No objections – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trilogy coming to Android

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last ten years, odds are pretty good that you've heard of Capcom's ultra-successful Ace Attorney series of detective/lawyer games for the Nintendo DS. Good news, legal eagles: the first three games in the series will soon be gracing your Android phone or tablet. The three titles will be made available on the Android Market. Developer Capcom didn't say when the games would be made available, but they'll cost 600 yen each or 1200 yen for the whole set - that's about $8 and $16 in US currency. Only Japanese versions are confirmed at the moment, but the series has done very well in the US and Europe, so expect a localized release at some point.

Official: Samsung Galaxy Note launches on AT&T February 19th

For those of you who salivated when AT&T announced that Samsung's gigantic Galaxy Note smartphone would make its way to America, your wait is nearly over. The wireless carrier announced today that it would launch the much-anticipated device on Sunday, February 19th. As expected, the phone will cost $299.99 with a two-year contract or extension - there's no word on how much the phone will cost without a commitment. Eager customers can pre-order the Galaxy Note starting on February 5th and get it delivered two days early. The Galaxy Note LTE will come in Carbon Blue and Ceramic White color options. The Galaxy Note has created quite a following since the original model was announced way back in October, at the IFA show in Berlin. The phone's outstanding feature is a 5.3-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED display, easily the largest and most high-resolution screen for any phone being sold today. In addition, it packs a Wacom digitizer and old-school stylus ("S-Pen") for pen-based drawing and input. Samsung has several customized applications to take advantage of the stylus, as well as the S-Pen SDK for developers who want their apps to integrate with the feature as well. If the Galaxy Note is well-received, the S-Pen may make its way to other future devices. The rest of the Galaxy Note is no slough: underneath that huge screen is a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage space and an 8MP camera. To power all that you get an admirably large 2500mAh battery. The Note runs Samsung's TouchWiz version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but an update to Ice Cream Sandwich is already in the works. The major difference between AT&T's version of the Note and those already released overseas is the new radio, which will take advantage of the carrier's LTE data network. Rumors of other US Galaxy Note variants, particularly the "Galaxy Journal" on Verizon, have yet to be confirmed. [timeline] [device id=1438]

Samsung’s expanding Galaxy now includes dual-core Galaxy S Advance

You can never have too many phones, right? Samsung sure seems to think so. The latest in its line of Galaxy-branded Android handsets is the Galaxy S Advance, a model that fits in between the first generation Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II as far as features and specifications are concerned. The biggest upgrade over the original is a dual-core 1Ghz processor. For those who can't get enough of the curvy screens found on the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, the new phone includes the slightly concave glass found on the developer phones. HardwareZone got an early look at a Galaxy S Advance (GT-i9070) in the Philippines.

Android Community Weekly: January 28, 2012

We're here with this week's wrap-up to bring a those of you that may have missed a few days back up to speed! Monday, some analytics displayed that an overwhelming amount of US Android users prefer Samsung over any other carrier. It isn't too hard to believe that Samsung is currently the most preferred smartphone brand, as their Galaxy S II line has dominated since it launched. Early on that same day, we saw that Asian cellphone carrier KDDI had incorporated pushed ads into Android's notification bar. I'm sure you will all agree, this clearly crosses the line.
