HTC EVO 4G, EVO Design 4G, and Epic 4G all seeing OTA updates

It looks like the Now Network is pushing out a slew of updates for their handsets today. While they've recently announced they'll no longer be releasing WIMAX devices and will instead focus on 4G LTE they aren't forgetting their current phones. The HTC EVO 4G, Design 4G, and the Samsung Epic 4G are all seeing over the updates today although none of them are anything major according to sources. More details after the break.

Skype update offers better video calling, file sharing

Skype has been a mainstay on many an Android device since it was released on the Market last year, and today's update brings it more in line with the VOIP service's desktop client. Those who aren't regular Skype users might not know this, but in addition to video and audio calls, the service also includes a full-featured instant message function, complete with file transfer. Today the Android version gets the feature, though it's focused on photos and videos at the moment.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

It seems that lately Samsung has been trying to cover all levels of the smartphone market, and with most carriers too. With the Samsung Captivate Glide they've done just that over on AT&T. Along with the Doubletime and a few other phones they have the entire range covered. Today we'll be showing you the mid to higher end of that spectrum with the Captivate Glide and its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and dual-core processor. It might not be the biggest or the best but it will put up a good fight, that is for sure.

Motorola ATRIX 2 hands-on [Video]

The original Motorola ATRIX was a top-end phone and a curiosity, mostly stemming form the novel addition of the laptop dock and its almost-desktop experience. The ATRIX 2 adds a few improvements, most notably a bigger 4.3-inch screen. Elsewhere the phone is mostly unchanged: same 1GHZ processor and 1GB RAM, same camera, even the same screen resolution. There are a few stylistic differences - the battery cover no longer has a faux carbon fiber look, for example - so let's explore them now. The 4.3-inch qHD screen dominates the front of the ATRIX 2, sparing just enough space for capacitive navigation buttons, a front-facing camera and of course, an AT&T logo. The screen is bright and crisp, the 960 x 540 resolution being put to good use on the large size. The phone itself is a little thick at 10.1 millimeters, but the curved back makes it comfortable enough. On the right side of the phone you get Motorola's standard mini-HDMI and USB ports, while the right side has volume up/down and - YES! - a camera button. Around the back you see an exposed speaker poking through the battery cover and the 8-megapixel, 1080p camera. The battery cover pops off when levered by a thumbnail from the bottom of the phone, and coves the entire back and top and bottom sides. This makes it a devil to get off, but once it's on there's absolutely no danger of it coming loose, which I feel is an acceptable trade-off. The ATRIX 2 comes with a measly 2GB MicroSD card, a poor inclusion on a top-end phone, especially since the internal storage has been halved to 8GB from the original ATRIX's 16. Inside you'll find Motorola's standard subtle Blur customizations running over Gingerbread, and the experience is a lot smoother than some other Moto phones I've seen, even on high-end hardware. The bloatware factor is unfortunately high: an AT&T-branded QR scanner, navigation, two specialized Market links, Live TV, a branded music store, and the Yellow Pages app. Other inclusions are the ubiquitous Let's Golf 2, ZumoCast, Qik, and QuickOffice. Motorola sent along a bevvy of accessories: the new universal Lapdock 100, desktop and car docks, an extended external battery and various cables to take advantage of them all, none of which are included in the retail packaging. All you get in the AT&T box is the phone, a charger wall ward and a USB cable. We'll be taking an in-depth look at the available accessories during the review.The ATRIX 2 is, currently and paradoxically, the same price as the ATRIX 4G at $99. Check out the hands-on video below. Note that I made an error in narration - the original ATRIX did not have a kickstand, that was the Motorola Photon. [vms 9c7956b1df66729296a4] [gallery] [device id=1734]

Samsung Galaxy S II Review [T-Mobile]

Today on the chopping block we have the brand new Samsung Galaxy S II headed to T-Mobile. Just like its twin brothers it has an amazing design that is thin and lightweight, but we also have a different, faster 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and a huge 4.52" Super AMOLED display here. We all know plenty about the amazing Galaxy S II superphone already but I'll be comparing it to the new Amaze 4G also on T-Mobile and running a few benchmarks, for now I'll just jump right into the pictures and video for everyone to enjoy.

HTC EVO 3D Software Update Now Available, Brings screenshots and bug fixes

HTC has just updated the HTC EVO 3D and they are basically fixing the issues that the first OTA caused the device from back when it launched. While the update didn't take too long I'm sure some wish this would have came a bit sooner. The update (version number 2.08.651.2) began its rollout already this morning and should be hitting all EVO 3D owners by 8/23. You can check for HTC Software Updates now and it will pull the update just as I have done. It's around 45mb in size so Wifi might speed up the process.

HTC Sensation OTA Update for 2.3.4 Gingerbread Hitting Europe

New reports this morning are suggesting the update to the late Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is currently underway for the European model. The update hit a few unbranded Germany roaming HTC Sensation phones but should be rolling out to other carriers throughout the next week or so. As far as I know there hasn't been any word regarding an update for the Sensation but this could be a good time to include some fixes and update to the latest OS version.
