Samsung Continuum Review

Welcome to the full review of the Samsung Continuum, currently being distributed by Verizon. Inside you'll find a hard look at whether the second screen is going to be a plus, a minus, or a meh! Preview: depends on the sort of person you are. I'll show you how it works in a video, giving you a few examples of what it can do, then review the rest of the phone in turn. Take a peek!

HTC Droid Incredible for Verizon Shipping with SLCD Displays by End of September

The idea of having your HTC Droid Incredible outfitted with a Super LCD display may not be happy news for most, but it's the sad truth of the day. After we broke the news that HTC had been forced to work with Sony to produce upcoming Incredible handsets a couple of months back, it looks like the solution has finally arrived, if this new screenshot is any indicator. It's reportedly a Verizon memo, circulating through their internal servers, and as you can tell from the wording, it looks like SLCD is beginning its roll-out soon.

HTC G2 Blaze for T-Mobile Seen on Walmart’s Site

We know that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that T-Mobile is launching the G2. We've even seen it in pictures now. But, there's something odd about Walmart showing it off on their website. We may be speaking for just ourselves here, but seeing a high profile device, especially one as high profile as the G2 "Blaze" here, listed in full glory (without a picture of its own, though), just seems foreign and unnatural.

Nexus One sells out as HTC struggle to find AMOLED panels

Google's general sales of the Nexus One via their US webstore may not have set the world alight - though they were apparently enough to satisfy CEO Eric Schmidt - but it seems its appeal as a developer device is stronger.  The company has confirmed that the Nexus One is currently out-of-stock through its developer portal, with both Google and HTC having burned through their supplies of the smartphone. Google is blaming a "worldwide AMOLED shortage" for HTC's inability to produce Nexus One handsets quickly enough, but says that "Everyone appreciates that it’s important to the platform to get phones in the hands of developers, so we’re working hard on re-stocking the shelves."  No public timeline for that to happen, however.

Samsung Galaxy U Specifications Revealed

The Samsung Galaxy U may not have been the cream of the crop at all, or ever, but it's certainly worthy of its own praise. Just uncovered over at Samsung Hub, the specifications for the upcoming Galaxy U have been unveiled. And while it may not be as impressive as its S-branded sibling, it's still worthy of the Android platform that it carries.

Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible Back in Stock at Verizon’s Site, Maybe

There's a reason we've included "maybe" up there in the title. We've gotten a few emails from folks telling us that those rumors floating around, that the original Motorola Droid had managed to find its way back into stock on Verizon's website are actually true. Furthermore, we've also heard that the Droid Incredible, manufactured by HTC and plagued by AMOLED touchscreen shortages, has actually reached "in-stock" status, too. Well, a quick visit to Verizon's site doesn't necessarily say the same thing.

HTC Desire Landing on US Cellular Shelves on August 27th

August is turning out to be a pretty big month for Android, and not just in the software side of things. With the launch of plenty of Android-based devices, on several networks here in the States, it should come as no surprise that some of the regional carriers out here want to get their hands on some high-profile devices. For one such carrier, US Cellular, the HTC Desire is their device of choice.

HTC Desire for Vodafone Getting Android 2.2 in the Coming Week or So

When the Vodafone-branded HTC Desire got Android 2.1, it was blanketed with plenty of Vodafone's 360 features. So much so, in fact, that plenty of customers out there weren't happy with the update to their software version at all. Thankfully, Vodafone's one of those wireless companies that actually listen to their customers, and have answered back, and informing customers just want it means to get the Android 2.2 update. Which, for the record, is supposed to be releasing in the next seven to 10 days.

AMOLED takes on Super LCD in side-by-side HTC testing video

HTC's decision to adopt both AMOLED and Super LCD (SLCD) for their smartphones has led to plenty of arguments over which technology is better, and now HowardForums has waded in.  They've been comparing a TELUS HTC Desire - which uses an SLCD panel - with the Google Nexus One's AMOLED display, to see which is better. As you might have guessed, the answer isn't quite that straightforward.  The AMOLED has better vertical viewing angles while the SLCD bested it on horizontal angles; neither could match the Super AMOLED of the Samsung Wave (as used in the Galaxy S family of devices) for contrast.  More details in the video below.
