Android 2.2 (Froyo)

NEC MEDIAS E-04C 7.7MM Android Phone [Hands-On in Japan] [EXCLUSIVE]

Our main homie Ewdi is up in his crib over in Japan [don't worry, he's completely safe], and he found one single store that had a working model (aka not just a dummy model) of the MEDIAS E-04C 7.7MM Android phone. That's one thin phone, I must say. Ewdi notes that this model is running Android 2.2.2 Froyo, and is not as snappy as he thought it would be - and trust me when I say Ewdi's had his hands on his fair share of smartphones. Our man in Japan with the goods!

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Shown Off by Product Manager Joe Fernandez

What a cool guy, that Joe Fernandez, he's the product manager for the fabulous new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G made by Samsung. He's got not one, but two of the devices sitting right there on the desk inside T-Mobile's gigantic towers in Bellvue, Washington. He and his pals have made this lovely video to show off the message-centric device to the world in-hand. He notes first the 5-row QWERTY keyboard and how they've "brought back" some unique messaging features -- from the original line of Sidekicks, the ones without Android, of course.

Motorola Atrix headed to T-Mobile UK in June

This morning some news has came up that T-Mobile UK looks to be getting the Motorola Atrix. The date I'm hearing is starting in June, but no exact time frame has been given by T-Mobile. Hopefully they plan to release it before June because by then I expect there to be more than a few dual core phones to compete with it. Sooner the better T-Mobile.

HTC ThunderBolt Connection Speed Benchmarks [SlashGear]

We'll be running our own benchmarks when we get our own ThunderBolt tomorrow, but for now, let's have a look at what SlashGear's been doing all afternoon, as they got their Verizon superstar phone earlier today! The tests began with a bit of the ol' Sun Spider browser testing. What SlashGear found was that this phone, while fast on the downloads, isn't the speediest phone out there today as far as Sun Spider sees it - while the HTC ThunderBolt grabbed a 6031.9ms, the Motorola ATRIX 4G (also on Android 2.2 Froyo running with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor) handled the test at 3960.8ms - and smaller is better.

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G by Samsung Announced with Android [And There Was Much Rejoicing]

Remember that phone that was originally made by a group called "Danger" by it's first name "Danger Hiptop." That was way back in 2002 (ancient history!) Danger was picked up by Microsoft, and long story short, in 2009, Microsoft suffered an outage that screwed up basically ever Sidekick user across the USA as well as parts of the UK. There was a long period of no Sidekicks during 2009, then on July 2nd, 2010, a date that will live in infamy, the Sidekick was discontinued. Until NOW when this epic phone that's gone through several iterations since birth when Samsung and T-Mobile team up again with a brand NEW partner, ANDROID, all of them here to bring you the 2011 T-Mobile Sidekick 4G!

Sprint has announced that the dual touch screen Kyocera Echo will be launched on the Now Network on April 17th. Pre-orders will being March 26th with the Echo going for $199 with a two year contact. Current Sprint users will also be able to purchase the phone through their eligible upgrade option.

Hulu Plus coming to Android 2.2 (Froyo)

Hulu has quietly leaked on their website that their popular subscription streaming TV service will join it's trifecta of Apple platforms with Android access to select OS 2.2 (Froyo) phones. There's no word on which specific handsets are supported, and frankly, does it really matter? If the phone runs Froyo, why should it matter? Well, it may be that the term "select" is to insulate Hulu from the root community out there which is placing Froyo and other Android OS flavors on older handsets.
