The Mobinova Beam is an 8.9 inch smartbook that uses NVIDIA’s Tegra platform to deliver HD graphics while using little power to do so. It’s rumored to have the ability to play over 16 hours of video. Windows CE was the featured OS choice in the past but Mobinova chose to go with Android instead because of it's large selection of apps.
With the anticipation building around the release of the first 4G phone, the Android powered HTC Supersonic, Sprint has just announced its plans to add 4G capabilities to more cities. This is a good strategy because it widens the appeal of having as 4G device to more potential customers.
A new member of our community by the name of Onyoursix, has uncovered an inventory listing that shows a phone identified as the HTC A9292 with WiMax capabilities. This device can be none other than the upcoming HTC Supersonic.
That's a great price for this entry level phone, especially since it has Android 1.5 and is a Cliq without the keyboard. Although this device has been covered ever since it was codenamed Zeppelin, I don't expect this to be a huge seller. But if you are in the market for a cheap touchscreen with extensive social networking capabilities then this is the phone for you.
Some lucky guy put together a quick first look at the upcoming HTC Supersonic. If you are not familiar with this Android device, it is slated to be the first WiMaxx/4G Android device to hit the US.
This phone is set for a late spring or summer release this year for Sprint's 4G network. It joins the HTC HD2 in the 4.3 inch screen family but it stands alone with its WiMaxx capabilities.
This phone isn't even out yet the specs keep getting better and better. The Desire is the hottest Android around the web since the Nexus One. This snapdragon Sense UI monster will surely be another hit for HTC, DivX support will be added at some point to the Desire.
Not to be out done by its younger brother, the Nexus One, the Droid now does Sense. HTC's custom Android UI dubbed Sense is the most popular version of any manufacturer's in-house UI. It is full of beautiful widgets (no pun intended) that has deep customization as well as many other options. The most notable features of Sense are the built Flash capabilities and native multi-touch integration.
Android is making a strong showing at this years MWC. There has been a lot of different announcements about upcoming devices running our beloved OS. This for now is just a prototype by Texas Instruments pushing the OS even further than we imagined.
