Sprint Galaxy Tab gets official Update, for real this time

myTouch 4G Updates for Reviewers, Download for All New Users

As you may well know by now, sometimes when reviewer-models of phones are sent out to the world of publications, tiny tweaks are needed to be done (or at least taken into account) when the review is being done. Some of those particular updates are happening now for the myTouch 4G. The first of these, we're informed, is a cryptic "software update" notification that will be available soon, available in a similar fashion as other Android OS updates. From there, it gets totally exciting.

Notion Ink gets real on battery estimates

Notion Ink has released a list of ways you'll be able to drain your Adam tablet's battery in around six hours, as a counterpoint to earlier talk of over fifteen hours of "normal" use.  1080p HD video playback at full brightness and volume will do it, the company says, together with playing a 3D augmented reality game with camera input and 3G or WiFi for data. Solid YouTube or other Flash video playback over wireless will also sap power quickly, as will streaming 3D maps over 3G and using the hardware GPS receiver.  Finally, recording HD video using the Adam's rotating camera and streaming it via WiFi is apparently a sure-fire way to drain the tablet in record time. To be fair, none of that is especially surprising, but it does raise a couple of interesting use-cases, particularly the HD streaming potential.  We've seen apps like Qik do real-time video uploads, but the quality is generally well short of HD.

Samsung Galaxy Tab hits T-Mobile from $400 on Nov 10

Sprint has officially confirmed that its version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will arrive on November 10.  The slate will be priced from $399.99 with a new, two-year agreement - just like Sprint's version - but according to the carrier's press release will also be available with prepaid data plans. That implies there'll be a more expensive version (i.e. with little or no subsidy, as with Verizon's Galaxy Tab) with no long-term agreement to sign. [via SlashGear] Press Release:

Sprint Evo 4G Review

Talk about hotly anticipated. Even before the HTC EVO 4G was officially announced, talk of a WiMAX Android smartphone had been driving speed freaks wild with the promise of 4G connectivity and the flexibility of an open-source OS. The handset even managed to oust attention from the Nexus One at Google IO last week, when the search giant handed out hundreds of EVO 4G handsets to attending developers.
