Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Smartphone Officially Announced

The last time we were speaking about a Walkman Android device, it was the Sony Ericsson W8, a rather boxy looking device with three Android buttons on the bottom, a Sony Ericsson skin over an unbelievably outdated Android 2.1 Eclair, and the ability to be dubbed with the legendary tag Walkman. What we've got here today is a much more viable release in the "Live with Walkman", a device launching with the newest Android 2.3.x Gingerbread and working like a magical music machine, complete with Spotify gracing its first press release image - will this be the first device to launch with Spotify built in?

XPERIA X10 Android 2.3 Gingerbread update coming August [Video]

Sony Ericsson has announced that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the XPERIA X10 is on track for a roll-out from the beginning of August 2011. The company has also released a video demo of the upgrade in action - which you can see below - as well as confirming just what features have made it in - or been left out - of the new ROM. After user requests, the original camera UI from the Eclair build has been left in the Gingebread update. The Facebook Inside XPERIA tweaks - which allow for sharing from the media player, browser and other apps - are present, as is most of the functionality from the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc.
"The UI with the desktop layout and pinch-to-overview gesture will be similar and Gingerbread features like Wi-Fi & USB tethering, App storage on SD-card etc are included. Also the customizable horizontal app tray and the media experience widgets from the 2011 XperiaTM Products are in, including an integrated equalizer in the music player. Of course also apps that require Android versions 2.2 or 2.3 will now be possible to download from Android Market, e.g. Adobe flash."
However, Sony Ericsson will not be including DLNA support out of the box, due to the inherent delays in getting type approvals, though third-party apps are available in the Android Market. Generic trade versions of the X10 will get the update first, followed by some operator models. However, the company warns that - as said before - some operator-supplied models will not be eligible for the Gingerbread update. [youtube zfEOU8juGec]

Motorola TITANIUM Announced

What follows is a mightily little device that makes up what it lacks in processor speed and Android up-to-datedness with a rather strong punch in the hardware. What this phone represents is the successor to the Motorola i1, this little monster coming out as an iDEN device, surprisingly stocked with the now-several-gen-old Android 2.1 Eclair, and a full QUERTY keyboard below a 3.1-inch touchscreen display. But why is this phone called the TITANIUM? Why it's because it meets Military Specification 810G for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature of course!

Acer Android / Intel Tablet Waiting in the Wings

Remember that one time when we had an awesome tablet by the name of Acer Iconia Tab A500 and we totally reviewed it FTW? That fancy bunch over at DigiTimes have done it again with their loose-lipped partners and have revealed the next step AFTER the A500, namely an Oak Trail device, and that means Intel! This tablet will supposedly run Android 3.0 (pointing toward the notion that Android 3.1 wont be rolling out to everyone as fast as predicted,) and that it'll be a 10-inch tablet retail released in July.

This device is available immediately and ships "on or about" June 10.

Motorola XPRT and Titanium revealed: New(ish) phones, Old Android

Motorola has unveiled a pair of new CDMA Android handsets, the Motorola XPRT and Motorola Titanium. The XPRT is a rebadged version of the Motorola DROID Pro, complete with a 3.1-inch HVGA touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard and World Phone capabilities, while the Titanium is a rugged iDEN device to replace the Motorola i1, with a 3.1-inch touchscreen, QWERTY and a Military Spec chassis resilient to dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature. Bizarrely, the Titanium runs Android 2.1 Eclair (the XPRT gets 2.2 Froyo) which seems almost stubbornly out-of-date. Both handsets have a 5-megapixel camera, WiFi b/g (b/g/n on the XPRT) and Bluetooth, along with a microSD card slot, GPS and push-to-talk. Frankly neither is particularly exciting.
