Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone in white lands in UK today

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S II smartphone is hitting the UK today in white. The smartphone will be offered at major retailers starting today, August 31, 2011. The white smartphone is exactly like the original Galaxy S II on the inside, the color is the only difference. This week we had reported that the smartphone would land on September 1, so the device is a day earlier than we though.

HTC Runnymede smartphone specs surface

We are always on the prowl for tidbits about new smartphones and other gear that pack Android inside. Some specs on a new HTC smartphone packing a big screen have surfaced. The smartphone is called the HTC Runnymede, which sounds like something that happens after drinking too much old-fashioned British ale. The device has been seen previously on a photo site in EXIF data, but that data on had the name.

Sony Ericsson Live Walkman Announced, Runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The Walkman brand I'm sure many of you used back in the days isn't dying out anytime soon. The folks at Sony plan to keep it chugging along and today they have announced a new Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman handset running the best OS around, Android of course. Thinking back on the huge Walkman disk player I carried around in my younger days before the iPod was fun, but the 128 CD carry case I also tugged around wasn't. Now we can just throw all that music on a micro SD card and throw it in the new Live Walkman smartphone.

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W8, a rather boxy looking device with three Android buttons on the bottom, a Sony Ericsson skin over an unbelievably outdated Android 2.1 Eclair, and the ability to be dubbed with the legendary tag Walkman.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?

Motorola Admiral, Samsung Epic 4G Touch, and HTC EVO Design 4G Leaked

It's that time again ladies and gentlemen, time to trust the word of a dude with a single black and white graphic. This particular graphic was passed to Engadget sometime in the night on August 8th, 2011, and points toward three new devices to be released on WiMAX in the very near future. The first of these is a very obvious version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, that being the Epic 4G Touch, the next being a next-gen HTC device by the name of HTC EVO Design 4G, the last being the only one of three to not tote the 4G tag, this one being the Motorola Admiral - a mystery device to be sure.

Sony S1 and S2 Tablet Hands-On Reviews

Rumors started awhile back about Sony's tablets, and now they're finally out in the open and Sony showed the two tablets off today. We don't have any specs or a release date yet, a bit odd but we'll have to take what we can. We've got all the juicy details and a look at the different hands-ons around the web for you right here.

HTC EVO 4G+ packs WiMAX into Sensation

HTC has quietly launched the 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!]

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]
