Atrix 4G and Inspire 4G to get HSUPA support in April update

AT&T has leaked in a Facebook response that the Motorola Atrix 4G an HTC Inspire 4G will be getting HSUPA 4G support with it's April software update. In addition, the Samsung Infuse 4G will come HSUPA enabled right out of the box. AT&T has caught fire of late for hobbling HSUPA 4G on their hallmark phones while they proceeded to 'test the network.' That caused many of those Atrix fans who bought the hype brought on by the Atrix winning best cellphone at CES and dove in with both feet, only to find a 4G phone only running at 3G speed. That will all change come April.

Atrix 4G first update falls short, no voice quality improvement

Motorola is poised to offer it's first OTA update to the Motorola Atrix. Unfortunately, it won't address the main gripes Atrix users are grumbling about ... namely voice quality and the lack of HSUPA support.

There's no real word on what will be in the change log just yet, but it's release, in beta form, will come Friday at 12pm EST, and users can sign up to test it here.

Gameloft releases Asphalt 6 for Android

It looks as if Gameloft has quietly released the much anticipated racing game Asphalt 6 for Android recently. I've not heard anything about it. I didn't see it posted on @GameloftAndroid on twitter or anything. I'm not sure why it was such a quiet launch, but at least it is finally here. I think they are still working on it as not all phones can get it yet. I tried for the Atrix and the site said it was not released for that device yet.

HTC Thunderbolt display comparison: looks are deceiving

Users of the new HTC Thunderbolt may be quite happy with the phone's touchscreen display ... so long as they don't show it next to the Google Nexus S or the Atrix 4G. Comparing the Thunderbolt's TFT display with the Google Nexus S Super AMOLED display or even the Atrix 4g qHD display, it really shows just how muted and washed out the images from the TBolt really look. But according to the review by Vince over at SlashGear, it's still a pretty impressive display. Users just shouldn't succumb to display envy.

Motorola Atrix & Xoom headed to Sprint with WiMaX 4G [Rumor]

This is just a rumor for now, so don't get to excited. I will mention that this rumor is said to be coming from a reliable inside source. So take it as you will. Apparently Sprint plans to keep things going in the right direction. After the EVO 4G made a huge entrance into the mobile market they've not really had anything big since. Many fans can't wait for the next big Sprint device. They haven't said much though, and that worries us.
