Android 5.0 Jelly Bean could include WebTop-style desktop mode

And now, let us commence months of speculation on Android 5.0! Just a week after suppliers claimed that Android 5.0 "Jelly Bean" (which, by the way, has not been confirmed as a code name) would be popping up this summer, Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin claims that Google will be including a dockable desktop mode in the next version of Android. That's not too far from a reality right now - most Android phones can output their video via HDMI in some form, and Motorola's high-end phones can connect to LapDocks to use the packaged WebTop OS. But instead of a completely different OS, Android would simply adjust its user interface for desktop mode.

LG Optimus Vu revealed with stylus and LTE

LG has officially revealed the LG Optimus Vu, the company's new flagship for MWC 2012 next week and its stylus-toting challenge to Samsung's Galaxy Note. Based around an iPad-matching 1024 x 768 resolution, 4:3 aspect display, the 5-inch Optimus Vu "phablet" uses a 650 nits IPS LCD panel for better outdoor visibility, and comes with a stylus for annotating documents, drawing sketches and making handwritten notes in LG's Memo app.

Apple’s Airplay comes to Google TV with Airtight app

Even at a site full of die-hard Android users, we're big enough to admit when a competing platform has a cool feature, and Airplay certainly falls in to that category. The feature allows iPhones and iPads to instantly stream video and audio to compatible devices, sort of like DLNA. Now that functionality has been extended to Google TV, by way of a GTV app known as Airtight. It's currently priced at 99 cents in the Android Market, though naturally you'll need Google TV hardware to see it.

HTC officially unveils EVO Design 4G with WiMAX

Not content to let Samsung and Motorola hog the limelight for long, HTC has revealed its latest entry in the EVO line. The HTC EVO Design 4G is a 4-inch Gingerbread phone packing WiMAX and world phone capabilities. The phone runs on a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, which combined with 768MB of RAM should be able to handle the 960 x 540 qHD screen nicely. The EVO Design 4G earns its name from its unibody aluminum construction, a trait it shares with some of HTC's slickest handsets like the Sensation. The press release mentions .47 inch (11.9mm) depth, about on par with other 4-inch smartphones, and considerably thinner than most WiMAX handsets. Some sacrifices had to be made - the 5 megapixel rear camera is midrange, and the 1520 mAh battery will likely take a beating when using the faster connection standard. HTC Sense 3.5, Watch DLNA certification and a 3G/4G mobile hotspot are included. Other features include the basic WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS combination, and the phone includes an 8GB MicroSD card, though internal storage is currently a mystery. The phone will go on sale this Sunday, October 23rd for $99 on a two-year contract, less $50 for the mail-in rebate. The pricing and size makes the HTC EVO Design 4G a suitable replacement for the EVO Shift 4G, so expect that phone to be discounted soon enough. [via SlashGear]

Sony’s Tablet S and Tablet P get Japanese 3G versions on October 28th

Sony's first entries into the Honeycomb tablet market, the creatively-named Tablet S and Tablet P, are getting mobile broadband versions in their home market. Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo will start selling 3G versions of both devices on October 28th. On this side of the Pacific, the Tablet S is only available in a WiFi version, and the dual-screen tablet P is still a complete no-show.

Verizon gets Samsung Stratosphere with LTE and QWERTY keyboard

Verizon has announced a new smartphone that is a first for the carrier. The new smartphone is called the Stratosphere and it has some very cool features. One of the biggest features is that the smartphone has 4G LTE service inside. The smartphone is aimed at the business user that sends lots of texts and emails. Its other big feature is a slide out QWERTY keyboard.

LG Optimus LTE delivers dual-core 4G

LG has officially announced the LG Optimus LTE, the handset previously known as the LU6200, packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 resolution display and 4G LTE connectivity. The high-speed smartphone - set to go on sale on South Korea's SK Telecom tomorrow, October 5 - has an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash and HD video recording. There's also DLNA support and an HDMI output, for getting your multimedia off the smartphone either wired or wirelessly. LG is hoping you'll watch some of it on the Optimus LTE's display itself, however: the phone uses one of the company's "IPS True HD" panels which, it claims, will beat the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE to the market and be the first such resolution panel on offer. 326ppi is not to be sniffed at, after all. What's still up in the air is availability outside of South Korea. After all, LG knows there are LTE networks in the US and elsewhere, and so we wouldn't be surprised to see broader sales after the initial roll-out this week. [via SlashGear]
