Correct me if I’m wrong but, Boost Mobile will bring to the market the first pre-paid Android device. Up until now every Android device we’ve seen has been tied to a carrier that doesn’t allow you to use it as a prepaid cell phone. Hopefully this device will be a success and we will start to see Android handsets available on more pre paid companies.
Viliv has manufactured many different types of PMP’s and Mp3 players. This rendition has the ability to run Android as well as Windows CE. This media player has a beautiful screen and can run Android 2.1. The only thing missing so far is a release date and price.
Samsung has another Android device in the works, the Galaxy 5 or the GT-I5500 will be hitting the streets soon. This little device packs in Android 2.1 along with a few other features. This device hasn’t really been covered much with all the excitement around the EVO and the Galaxy S so it may be something new for most of you out there.
Canadian carrier Bell has just released the Motorola Dext, you may know this device as the Motorola Cliq. Bell had announced in the past that this phone will be due in the first half of this year, they are cutting it real close but it’s finally been released.
Since the release of the G1, Android owners sat by patiently waiting for an Android device with UMA capabilities. That wait may come to an end soon. BGR is reporting that T-Mobile is currently test UMA to be used in upcoming Android handsets.
Usually when a handset passes the FCC it’s really close to being released. The Samsung M910 is expected to be the Moment 2 and it has just passed through the FCC. Looks like the original Moment will have a short lifespan just like the HTC Eris. Hopefully 2.1 still get pushed to both of these devices, Sprint has pretty much confirmed the update for both their current Android devices so it’s now a waiting game.
This June, the Acer Liquid E will be launching for $49.99 on Rogers Wireless. All you have to do to get this get deal is sign away 3 years of your life. Off-contract, the phone will be costing customers $349.99, and that’s not a bad deal. I would opt for the full price rather than being stuck with the same phone for 3 years. As fast as technology moves, this phone will be dated by the time you’re a third of the way done with your contract.
Hope you haven’t forgot about Samsung, they continue to release very good Android devices all around the world (we just hope some of them make their way here). Samsung has released the Galaxy A for South Korea. This device has similar specs to the original Galaxy but has a few new ones as well.
Dell has a lot of new different Android devices entering the market late this year and early next year. This one is called the Smoke, it’s like a slim Blackberry mixed with a Pixi. This device will be targeted towards corporate customers but the appeal of this phone will widen if Dell sticks to their plans of offering this device at a low price.
Dell seems to be raising the bar with their second generation Android devices. This is the first of two that has just surfaced around the web. This phone will be called the Dell Flash and it has some great specs, but there is a down side to this awesome device.
