HTC Pyramid. Before we continue, let's take a note of the most recent word on this superphone of the future: it appears that it'll be called the HTC Sensation. This is a fabulous name if I do say so myself, and we all approve.
Jason Wang. He is not one of the very well known concept designers but I have a feeling after everyone starts to see this latest creation he will be. This is about as clean and elegant as a phone could come.
thrown Google TV into the mix as well. The idea comes from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Code Branch and there's talk that an announcement may come to Google IO this year. There is also talk that this is why Google has refused to released Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) into the open source community. The drum beats of fragmentation plus the recent malware scares seem to be making Google gun shy, as they're not only holding Honeycomb close to the vest, but there's also talk that Google may be locking down Android altogether. The idea is that with Google TV, Tablets and Smartphones having the same basic code, then it becomes far easier to update and hence, combat the fragmentation issue. It would also free up Google to focus on one product - the Android Open Source Project. But the real question is, will all of this put Google TV in the spotlight where Google intended it to be all along? [via PhanDroid]
FCC this weekend, as it's CDMA twin received Federal consideration. The inaugural Playstation certified handset, shows a SIM card slot that's different from Verizon's 4G LTE devices. This is leading some to speculate if this is a 3G only device, at least for testing purposes. We haven't seen any 4G association with the phone's advertizing with Verizon, and only rumors are circulating as to the Xperia Play launching later this month. But as we reported here, the Xperia Play is coming to 11 markets around the world, just not the US initially.
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!
