new Android smartphones today with the unveiling of the new Optimus Pro and Optimus Net devices. The Pro is model number LG-C660 and the new Net is LG-P690.

HTC EVO 4G+, a new 4.3-inch qHD dual-core Android smartphone that's basically the company's latest Sensation variant. While ostensibly a WiBro Android smartphone for the Korean market, there's a fair chance that the EVO 4G+ could get a US launch on WiMAX networks. Like the Sensation, there's a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus and a dual-LED flash, capable of recording 1080p HD video. Up front is a 1.3-megapixel camera, and there's MHL HDMI support for the USB 2.0 connection. HTC also throws in GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot. Connectivity includes both HSPA/WCDMA and WiMAX (WiBro) support, along with quadband GSM/EDGE. There's HTC's Sense UI on top of Android, complete with HTC Watch for renting or purchasing video content, DLNA wireless streaming, stereo speakers and more. No word on when it will launch in Korea, nor indeed when it might make it to North America. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
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]
HTC EVO 3D to market. Lucky for us we had the Optimus 3D sometime back in May and were able to do a full review and you can read all about that here.
released its Smart View app for the Galaxy S II, allowing users of the dual-core smartphone to stream content from a smart TV directly to their phone. The app allows the phone to not only control a Samsung TV, but to pull content from it - whether broadcast, cable, Blu-ray or some other input - over WiFi. We've been tracking Samsung's Smart View technology for a while now, and played with a prototype of the system back in April. As you can see from the demo below, the phone acts as a remote and as a preview window, capable of showing different content to what's being displayed on-screen on the TV itself. [vms 7c87f97fb686b2f06867] The Samsung Smart View app is a free download from the Android Market. You'l obviously need a compatible TV from Samsung's D7000, D8000 or D9500 series, too. A version for the Galaxy player (YP-GB70) is expected in July, with Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab builds due later in 2011. [gallery] Press Release:
Samsung Launches 'Smart View' App, Puts Smart TV in the Palm of Your Hand SEOUL--(Korea Newswire) June 2, 2011 -- Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, today launched the Samsung "Smart View" application that enables users to view images from a Samsung Smart TV or other input device right on their mobile devices. Available now for the Samsung GALAXY S II, the free Smart View application displays Smart TV images right onto mobile devices via wireless Ethernet-whether consumers are enjoying cable broadcast programs or content from a Blu-ray player, camcorder, set-top box or other input device. In addition, users can browse any currently installed Smart TV applications from their mobile devices, bringing even more functionality and convenience to the Samsung Apps experience. Since last April, when Samsung launched "Samsung Remote"-an easy-to-use application to deliver general remote control functions while also supporting Smart TV's special features-the company has once again strengthened convergence between Smart TV and mobile devices through this latest Smart View app offering. Samsung has consistently brought movies, TV programs, music and other desired content stored on DLNA-certified devices such as PCs, mobile phones and cameras to the large TV screens-and is now extending this function by mirroring images back to mobile devices through this new application. The Smart View app for mobile devices also enables mobile viewing from around the home. With only one Smart TV, a family member can watch one TV program in the living room, while another family member enjoys either the same content-or movies played by the living room Blu-ray player-from the comfort of the bedroom while leaning back with a Samsung smart phone or tablet. "Samsung Smart TV is leading the "smart revolution" not only with the features of Smart TV itself-such as rich content, 2D and 3D picture quality, smart functions and design-but also with input devices using our Qwerty smart remote control, the Samsung Remote app, and now with Smart View," said Kyungsik Kevin Lee, Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "The distinctive functionality of Samsung Smart TVs will continue to deliver the most convenient TV watching experience to consumers-enabling them to truly enjoy a smarter life." Samsung will continue to update the Samsung Smart View application with various remote control functions, optimally designed for Smart TV, to ensure customers use the unique features of Smart TV in increasingly convenient ways. A "Channel List" option, which lets users search program information and change channels on their mobile devices, will be added going forward. The Samsung Smart View is now available in the Android Market for Samsung Smart TV D7000, D8000, and D9500 series, as well as the GALAXY S II, and will be available for the GALAXY player (YP-GB70) in July, along with the GALAXY S and GALAXY Tab later this year.
we've gotta have before we know how much cash we're going to have to drop down on the HTC Sensation 4G. This press release lets us know that the device will be out "by June 15th," this POSSIBLY dashing hopes that the device will be announced on June 8th, but not completely - announcements, releases, and presentations are all different of course.
