Samsung Vibrant 4G for T-Mobile Poses for Photo, Shows Off Android 2.3 [Update]

The Samsung Vibrant 4G has been getting a lot of press lately, but not for the right reasons. The device's feature set should be the focus for potential customers. Instead, suggestive politics and rumors foreshadow this still unannounced device's upcoming availability. For one unnamed tipster, who managed to get some hands-on time with the device, the next generation Vibrant handset from Samsung is all set to bring T-Mobile's 4G network to the handset. That, and an unexpected update to the mobile Operating System.

Motorola Bionic Heading to Verizon, Packing 4G LTE and qHD Display

Motorola has been on a streak today with their Android devices, especially when we think about high-profile the company is aiming these devices to be. With the Motorola ATRIX 4G, the company touts it as the first smartphone to feature a qHD display.

Meizu M9 Now Available to Purchasers Outside of China

The Meizu M9 has been a long time coming, but it wasn't too long ago that the device finally launched. The expectation for the device created some pretty long lines, which was made worse by the fact that Meizu's CEO still doesn't have any plans to actually release the device outside of China any time soon.

They are more than happy to sell you the device, as long as you can take a bit of a mark-up in the process.
