Sony Ericsson XPEIRA acro Presentation Pics Leaked

The following is a collection of presentation slides that appears to have been leaked from Sony Ericsson Japan. The slides show a device by the name of XPERIA acro which will roll out with interior and exterior aesthetics quite similar to those seen on recent XPERIA phones, with one or two major exceptions. In order to fly into the Japanese smartphone market, one that's still nothing compared to the flip-phone market mind you, a device must have instant-payment capabilities. That why this sassy little lady has NFC.

T-Mobile G2x Hands-On and Unboxing [Video]

Oh my goodness look at this amazing smartphone right here. This is the same phone we got to have a brief hands-on with back at CTIA at the Hawaiian Luau aka Pepcom. Now we've been sent out very own in the mail and it's oh so sweet to behold. Inside you're going to find a Vanilla version of Android 2.2 Froyo (that meaning no mods from T-Mobile, just pure Googly goodness,) on the outside you're going to find front and back facing cameras including a fat 8 megapixel on the back - and smoothness. Simple designs breed simply awesome experiences, if I do say so myself.

Samsung Gem Review [a Unique Android Indeed]

There's a soft spot in my heart for all of the odd iterations of devices running Android, especially when they provide essentially the same software as their brothers and sisters. What this phone represents is a bridge for scaredy cats to get into smartphones - people who've been using cellphones for a few years, but aren't quite ready to experience the top Android phones and appreciate them for what they are. Instead, this phone has all the buttons it needs - physical buttons, mind you, to present itself as an easy to use phone that also has smartphone features and functionality - and it's cute!

Verizon Droid Incredible 2 Promo Materials Arriving in Stores [Pics]

Our good buddy Zapados appears to have taken some sneaky shots of promo materials delivered to his local Verizon store. Included is a poster that notes the Incredible 2's ability to take front-facing video, the fact that it's got a 1GHz processor, and that it's Global Ready for use in "more than 200 countries." Sounds like quite the fashionable phone, yes? And it's got that nice crystal droid eye too!

So you know what you're dealing with when it comes to a total dual-core brawl, but what about HTC's current bigtime winner, the HTC ThunderBolt? Will it simply be left in the dust, crushed, hopeless, crying in the dirt when it comes to battling its brother the HTC Sensation? Perhaps! Let's have a look at the specs on both devices and see what the numbers can tell us - and don't forget, some people choose a phone based on it's fancy good looks, which means the HTC ThunderBolt with its tank-like extended battery might have a fighting chance!

Droid X Gingerbread Update happening today

Droid X users are starting to get the official Gingerbread update today, but users who want to root their phones may want to think twice. The new update is version 4.5.588, and according to reports, the devil is in the details as to what it brings. It seems that Motorola may be quietly replacing the Droid X bootloader with a locked down version and users will have no way to revert back to the previous version. As if that wasn't enough, the fact that Motorola and Verizon are quietly performing the update with no notice is just plain devious.

Looking at the various layers of the Thunderbolt, it's really amazing how much can fit into such a thin, by comparison, package.Images show the 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, iNAND flash memory and SDRAM from Sandisk and Samsung respectively, and all the antenna including CDMA, EVDO, and LTE. In addition, there's close ups of the Thunderbolt's GPS antenna, Bluetooth, and WLAN Antenna's as well.

This weekend, Amazon put the Motorola Atrix on sale for $49.99 with a two year deal. And they were VERY quiet about it too. The sub $50 price tag is the lowest the Atrix has been advertised for to date and shows that Amazon is being pretty aggressive with this Android phone.

Cloud Touch Facebook phone clears FCC

INQ has received word that the Cloud Touch Facebook Phone has cleared the FCC. Dubbed simply "The Facebook Phone," the Cloud Touch will likely head to AT&T since testing included support for GSM 850 and 1900 bands, as well as WCDMA Bands II and V. There's no word on when the Cloud Touch will make it to MaBell, or how much it will run, but analysts looking at pricing and availability in Europe speculate that the device will sell for about $500 unsubsidized or $30 with a two year deal from AT&T. And although we don't have a launch date just yet, the 180 day request for non disclosure should put this in AT&T stores sometime in late summer or early fall, if guessing correctly.
