CTIA 2011

Samsung Nexus Prime hitting Verizon October 27th [Rumor]

Word on the street is the Samsung Nexus will be launching on Verizon Wireless come October 27th. Since we still don't have an official name I'll just start calling it the Samsung Nexus instead of Galaxy, Prime, DROID, and all that other jazz. With all the recent rumors and teaser videos this just might end up being accurate but for now we'll chalk this up as a rumor and keep on dreaming.

Samsung Mobile Unpacked Event set for October 11th at CTIA

Well folks, today Samsung has been reaching out to the mobile world reminding everyone they will be live in San Diego on October 11th for CTIA. The CTIA events in October are more for developers and enterprise level guests but as usual we can expect a few neat things to come from the show. Their last event they unveiled three Galaxy S II models for the US, and before that at IFA we learned about the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the popular Galaxy Note.

HTC Flyer Review on SlashGear

Our buddy Chris Davies has done a review of the HTC Flyer, that cute little 7-inch HTC handheld tablet, over on our sister site SlashGear. What you're about to view is a bit of a re-write review based on what he's told us about the device thus far. This is the first tablet we've seen from HTC since 2008, the last being a Windows device by the name of HTC Shift. So how is the Flyer? We got a tiny glimpse of this piece of candy back at Mobile World Congress 2011 and a much longer look at its USA cousin via Sprint at CTIA 2011 - that one was black, this one's white, that one has the stylus sold separately while the Flyer has one that comes with. Will this Euro HTC superstar add up?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review [Google I/O Limited Edition]

It's been what seems like forever since I last held this fantastic piece of industrial design. Back at CTIA 2011, we got to peek behind the scenes at a couple of dummy units from Samsung, one of them the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, the other the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, essentially the same unit you see here. The differences begin in that the dummy unit had no working machinery inside, a microSD slot where now there's nothing, and this limited edition unit has a white back with a hoard of Androids marching forward etched inside it. This device is what we expect to be nearly the same as what you'll be purchasing in June, so it's time to give this fantastical edition a complete once over!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Hands-On in Germany

It appears that our Android pals in Deutschland have gotten their hands on the yet to be release Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, one of two new tablets announced back at CTIA 2011 (we where there!) but without working units (we got to see the dummies!) We also got to see a working version of the Android 3.0 Honeycomb with TouchWiz overlay on a different test-unit tablet that same faithful day - what NewGadgetsDE has for the world now is no less than those two elements combined - and in a white-backed unit!

Sony Ericsson XPEIRA acro Presentation Pics Leaked

The following is a collection of presentation slides that appears to have been leaked from Sony Ericsson Japan. The slides show a device by the name of XPERIA acro which will roll out with interior and exterior aesthetics quite similar to those seen on recent XPERIA phones, with one or two major exceptions. In order to fly into the Japanese smartphone market, one that's still nothing compared to the flip-phone market mind you, a device must have instant-payment capabilities. That why this sassy little lady has NFC.

T-Mobile G2x Hands-On and Unboxing [Video]

Oh my goodness look at this amazing smartphone right here. This is the same phone we got to have a brief hands-on with back at CTIA at the Hawaiian Luau aka Pepcom. Now we've been sent out very own in the mail and it's oh so sweet to behold. Inside you're going to find a Vanilla version of Android 2.2 Froyo (that meaning no mods from T-Mobile, just pure Googly goodness,) on the outside you're going to find front and back facing cameras including a fat 8 megapixel on the back - and smoothness. Simple designs breed simply awesome experiences, if I do say so myself.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Honeycomb Tablet Officially Announced

Our good friends at Acer have let us in on the official release of the Acer Iconia Tab A500, a 10.1-inch 1280x800 TFT WXGA tablet running Android 3.0 Honeycomb that's available exclusively at Best Buy NOW for the price of $449.99. We got to peek at an early build of this wild device by chance back at a jumpin' AT&T party during CTIA 2011, and it wasn't really all that ready to go software-wise, but the hardware was silvery tight and fresh. Now we've got the full lowdown and it's ready to be shared with the whole world.

Wysips Solar-Powered Screen Cover to Add $1 to Smartphone price [ALPHA]

There are more details coming out over the Wysips Solar Powered screen for smartphones we reported on last week. According to this hands on, done by Laptop Magazine, the photovoltaic screen will be included in new smartphones within a year and promises to only add about $1 to existing cellphone prices. The hands on shows a smartphone mockup with an amp-meter attached to it, showing the fluctuating voltage as the device moves in and out of exposed light. Wysips also says that the solar film isn't only being developed for for smartphones, it'll have applications for tablets and eBook readers as well.

Verizon 2011 Roadmap Leaks, Droid Charge, Xperia PLAY, Droid Incredible 2, Droid X 2, and Samsung Galaxy S II

Every once in a good while something lovely like this comes along and lets us know when basically everything in the world will be coming out. There's been a list of devices released that was more than likely sent out to Verizon stores with the intent being that they'd know in advance what to prep their employees for, spreading info sheets according to when each device will be released. What we've got here is a wave of Android, to be sure. Everything your robotic heart could possibly desire, coming soon!
