ZiiLabs JAGUAR Android dual and quad-core Reference Platforms Unveiled

This isn't the first time we've heard of ZiiLabs, but it seems as though each time they show their head they seem to fade back into the background as swiftly as they re-appeared. This time they've got a hankering for Honeycomb and they've got what appears to be some lovely reference tablets for OEM and ODM to be using to bring their own Android tablets running Android 3.x with speed and grace.

Sprint Motorola Phone possibly called the Photon 4G

We have been hearing for a while that Sprint would be getting another big device like the EVO soon but from Motorola, and that it was planned to be an Atrix-like device but with even more docks and accessories. We still don't know much, but I'm sure Sprint will be spilling the beans soon so stay tuned on AndroidCommunity.

LG Optimus 3D Hands-On and Unboxing

Woo look at this red hot goodness. It's the LG Optimus 3D, an early developer version "intended for engineers" -- take note of that for later. First let me comment on the box for a moment. It's slick. One thing you can say about LG and the rest of the bigtime companies like HTC these days is that they've got their packaging game together.

See how it feels to the hands here and now.
