LG X3 will come to market as the Optimus 4X HD

What's more catchy than an extremely generic product name like "X3"? How about a longer generic name that's already appeared on dozens of handsets? PocketNow reports that the LG X3, rumored to be the South Korean manufacturer's new flagship when it appears at Mobile World Congress, will be rechristened the LG Optimus 4X HD. Why 4X? Who knows. Changes from a codename to a more generic name for actual release aren't uncommon, and our American readers should remember that LG tends to bow to carriers when it comes to US branding - see the Optimus LTE and its Nitro HD and Spectrum names on AT&T and Verizon, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy S III rumored to be a mere 7mm thin

Today ends in the letter "y", and you know what that means: more Galaxy S III rumors! The latest scuttlebutt amongst unnamed "industry insiders" points to a 7mm profile on Samsung's flagship device, besting even the Motorola DROID RAZR for skinny dimensions. The rumor comes from ETnews, who also reports that the unnamed sources expect the phone to launch in May, probably as an international model. The only solid news concerning a Galaxy S II successor coming from Samsung is that it won't be showing up at Mobile World Congress, as the company is saving the good stuff for its own event at an unspecified date.

NEC MEDIAS ES N-05D is the latest ultra-slim superphone

Motorola didn't know they were setting off a fashionista arms race when they announced the DROID RAZR way back in November. The super-skinny superphone has drawn admiring reviews and no small amount of immitation, though Moto remains the only one close to its 7.1mm crown in the US market. The latest contender is the NEC MEDIAS N-05D (rolls off the tongue, dunnit?) slated for release on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. The 6.7mm Android smartphone will launch in the first quarter of this year.

Huawei Ascend P1 S “world’s thinnest phone” Hands-on

Last week the folks from Huawei announced their new Ascend P1 and P1 S Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphones. The latter of the two, the P1 S they are calling the "world's thinnest smartphone" coming in at only 6.68mm thin. The 7.1mm DROID RAZR didn't hold the title long, and neither did that Fujitsu Arrows ES phone no one remembers. At CES we got a few hands-on pictures and video of this super-thin phone so check it out and let us know what you think.

Huawei Announces the Ascend P1 S, world’s thinnest phone, runs ICS

Huawei has just announced their new Android smartphone to battle the likes of the DROID RAZR or the new Fujitsu Arrows ES smartphone. They are bringing the worlds thinnest smartphone to market and it will be called the Ascend P1 S. Huawei has managed to fit a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and some other impressive specs into a super thin and lightweight 6.68mm thin chassis.

ASUS TOUGH Android Honeycomb 7″ tab hits Japan

We've seen plenty of smartphones over the recent past released that are tough, water resistant, and can handle most situations but we haven't seen many for Android Honeycomb tablets. Today ASUS has unveiled the ASUS TOUGH ETBW11AA Tablet. The ASUS TOUGH is both water, and dust resistant, and comes with 4G WiMAX as well an impressive 1280x800 resolution all on that 7" frame.

Another Dual Screen Android phone pops up … sort of

Murmurs were abound this week as Kyocera announced a dual-touchscreen phone that looked like a Nintendo DSi that makes phone calls. Now there may be another as Fujitsu looked poised to jump into the dual-touchscreen pool. Only, instead of a landscape style screen, they're doing for a portait vibe ... with "options." And it's very interesting.

Sprint Kyocera Echo dual-touchscreen Android phone tipped for imminent reveal

Sprint is expected to launch a dual-touchscreen smartphone made by Kyocera later today, pairing two 3.5-inch touchscreens and running Android. According to the WSJ, the Sprint Kyocera Echo has what's described as a "pivot hinge" - presumably a double-hinged arrangement - which allows one screen to fold back against the other out of the way. We're imagining something similar to Fujitsu's prototype, shown here. According to the source, "users can accomplish multiple tasks on the two screens, or drag items from one screen to the other." This isn't the first we've heard of a dual-display Sprint device; leaks back in mid-January suggested the same thing, though the exact nature of the functionality is still unclear. Android Community will be at the Sprint event in a few hours time, so we'll have all the details as they're announced.

Android Community Week In Review – Week 5 2009

This week saw a few big stories for the Android platform, the most anticipated being T-Mobile's official announcement of offering more Android-based handsets in 2009. A specific number was not given, but HSPA capabilities on these handsets are almost a given, with T-Mobile's stance that they will have 3G data networks available in 300 cities by the end of 2009. This would make T-mobile highly competitive with Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile also released their Q4 2008 numbers, and the results left some wondering if the G1 was really able to compete with the iPhone, as it hadn't drawn near the same number of subscribers to T-Mobile from previous carriers. Another factor to consider is the currently bleak job market and economy, and the possible unwillingness to pay early termination fees to switch for a new phone.
