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.

NOOK Color Developer Program Ramps Up Vital Connections

The fine folks at Barnes & Noble have just updated us on how their Developer Program is shaping up, a whole new phase of said program starting very soon. This second phase will include a brand NEW suite of tools and services that'll allow developers to create lovely reading-related apps for the NOOK Color specifically. This update also includes a new open door for "qualified third-party developers and content providers." What that means we're soon to find out!

Motorola Droid X2 Pictures leak, looks the same

Uh Oh, looks like the guys over at Android Central have scored a few pictures of the upcoming yet-unannounced Motorola Droid X2. It looks basically the same as little brother, or big little brother I should say. Since they are both very similar and basically the same size. The original X has the wisdom because he is older and wiser, but the new Droid X2 has the heart, and that heart is the fast pumping Tegra 2 dual-core CPU inside. That is the tie breaker here.

Samsung Gem on U.S. Cellular Hands-On and Unboxing

We've been talking about this phone for months and months and yes, months, I kid you not. The Samsung Gem has news spanning back to August 4, 2010 and it's got regular updates all the way up to the present where it's available on U.S. Cellular for basically free ($29.99 after $80 mail-in rebate and 2-year contract.) At one point we saw it on Bluegrass, another time we had it coming out with Verizon, once it even cost $200! Crazy time! Now we've got it in our hands and it is truly, yes truly, a little gem.

HTC ThunderBolt Outsells iPhone 4 at Verizon

So you were wondering if it was wise to keep your launch-day ThunderBolt and you decided to hang on to it, yes? You though it was probably the best phone you'd ever owned in your entire life, and you wanted to be awesome, just like the thousands of other Verizon customers across the USA, right? Turns out you're VERY MUCH not alone in that, and you're beating the crap out of Apple while you're at it. That's right, HTC ThunderBolt is outselling the iPhone.

LG Optimus Big Revealed – 4.3″ NOVA Display in Tow

For those of you paying rather close attention, you'll remember back a few months ago when we showed you the LG Optimus Black, an Android handset that employed a brand new NOVA display. That phone had a 4-inch screen, was said to be carrying Android 2.2 Froyo, and will be coming in at 6mm at its thinnest point. What we've got here is a big brother to that, codename Optimus Big, a 4.3" monster that'll be coming out on an LG U+ carrier in Korea starting in April 2011. Will it be coming to the states? We hope so!

LG Optimus V Hands-On and Unboxing [SUPER CUTE!]

Take a peek at this, an Android phone that's basically free, runs Android 2.2.1, and wont take up more than a tiny wallet's worth of space in your pocket. This is the LG Optimus V, the other-toned relative of the LG Optimus U which we've already taken a look at a few months ago. This phone is surprisingly similar, it's hardware essentially exactly the same save for the coloring (this one's black where that one's blue,) with a spiffy new box made to be sold off the shelves in stores all day long.

Sprint Kyocera Echo Presented at CTIA 2011 in an Odd Display [VIDEO]

Let's talk for a moment about the Kyocera Echo that'll be carried by Sprint in the very near future. Since you've more than likely seen this phone before, and you'll certainly seen it explained at great length again by yours truly when a review model becomes available, I thought we'd take a little bit of a non-traditional approach to this situation by filming from the perspective of someone being presented this device at CTIA 2011.

Sprint Kyocera Echo Startup Sequence [EXCLUSIVE]

Whilst having another look at the Kyocera Echo at the Kyocera booth during CTIA 2011, we happened upon a unit that was switched off. Deciding to check to see if anything magical would happen if we switched the device on while filming, we hit the on button with our camera rolling. As it happens, it does indeed have a unique startup sequence, and now in this video you're going to get to see it! Apologies in advance for the undeniably horribly terribly screen full of fingermarks! Take it as a sign that a lot of people are pumped up about this phone.

Kyocera Echo available for preorder through Sprint

With the new Kyocera Echo Dual Screen Android device coming April 17th to Sprint, the Now Network has set up a reservation and preorder site to purchase this odd, yet entertaining smartphone. The price at pre-order is $199.99 after a $100 instant rebate and requires a new line activation (or eligible upgrade) on a two year contract. Users can also get the Echo with an Everything plan with Data, or premium data add-on and a two year deal. And the site isn't just a reservation site either, as Sprint is getting playful with a "challenge to a dual," and a gunslinger shooting at you and getting you to play the Bottle Bustin' Bandits game. In the game, users can also enter to win an Echo through the Duel for a Dual Sweepstakes.
