HTC may be forced to exit German market in the wake of IPCom patent case

Further supporting the Android Community amateur legal opinion that German courts are full of dunkoffs, IPCom's patent injunction against HTC has been held up in that country. The initial ruling was made two years ago, with HTC almost immediately appealing. Now the original ruling has been upheld, and HTC will be forced to either capitulate to IPCom's demands (read: pony up the cash) or halt sales in Germany.

Galaxy Tab 10.1N released in Germany, Samsung says “saugen sie es” to Apple

After winning an injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany over some extremely vague design patents, Apple was sitting high on the hog, keeping the South Korean company from selling tablets in the country. Months later Samsung has responded with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, a redesigned model that presumably skirts Apple's complaints to become legal in Deutschland. The new tablets will begin shipping in the next few days for €550, or about $743.

IFA 2011 Wrap-Up

As you may already know, we were live and in action this year in Berlin at IFA 2011, and without a doubt it was a year for tablets on the Android front. Samsung, Toshiba, and ViewSonic brought the heat while Lenovo brings on the candy-coated goodness. Then there's what many have considered the superstar of the whole show: the Samsung Galaxy Note; not a smartphone yet not quite a tablet - kind of like the Britney Spears of Android mobile devices, if you will. Take a dunk with us as we get hands-on looks at everything under the sun.

Android Community at IFA 2011: What to Expect

This week in Berlin, Android Community will be covering IFA 2011, one of the oldest industrial exhibitions in Germany and host to a slew of important events hosted by Samsung, HTC, and many others. First and foremost I should mention that we'll be liveblogging the Samsung Unpacked event on Thursday, September 1st at 11AM CET - that's 4AM Central Standard Time, so more than likely past your bedtime. The rest of the time we'll be having an awesome time speaking with a whole mess of other manufacturers and developers across the board.

HTC Flyer Wifi-only Version Pre-Order at Cyberport Now

The slightly less awesome Wifi-only version of HTC's newest installment of Android device, the Flyer tablet, is now up for pre-order via Germany's Cyberport retailer. The listing they've got up details the 7-inch slate's 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen that includes active stylus (for all your drawings!) as well as Android 2.4 Gingerbread with customized Sense overlay, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and a complete lack of 3G/HSPA connection. On the other hand, this version that includes no contract at all, leaving you free and clear forever, will run you only €499 ($686).

HTC Desire 2 Appears in Vodafone System

It appears, according to a source reporting to German Android website HTC Inside, a stocklist from Vodafone has just had a new phone by the name of Desire 2, aka HTC Desire 2, entered in. Does this point toward imminent release as well as an announcement in Barcelona? We've got a hunch.

German Android 2.4 Nexus S Phone [Developments]

Last night we gave you a bit of a news bit that had to do with both an FCC filing and a video that showed a German fellow holding a phone that appeared to be a Nexus S device running Android 2.4 (this video and FCC filing are in the gallery below, or you can take a [click back] to that post if you'd like as well.) Now what we see today, courtesy of MobiFlip, is a closeup picture of a screen of a German language based phone that again says its Nexus S phone and is running Android 2.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich.)
