Xiaomi MI-One dubbed the MIUI Phone. They are the guys behind the 1.5 Ghz dual-core phone that will be shipping with the 3rd party custom MIUI Rom stock. The device looks great and I'm sure many were wondering if we'd see a stock version -- today the answer is yes.
leaked way back in July and was being called the Atrix HD so we are still up in the air regarding the actual name. With a few design changes and a new placement for the AT&T logo this looks to possibly be the final version we should see hit the shelves soon. More details and pictures after the break.
back at Google I/O when the folks at Google announced an alliance between manufacturers that would all but guarantee you'd have updates sent to your Android devices up to and including 18 months after its inception date? Have you heard anything about that group since? Not just a whole heck of a lot, right? Well check it out, the folks at AndroidAndMe have done a study taking into account every released device at this very moment and have found which devices have the most current OS (and we're talking only about smartphones here, not tablets), that OS being Android 2.3 Gingerbread right this moment. What they've found, first of all, is that HTC is in the clear lead with 13 devices on Gingerbread while Samsung is the closest behind with 9 devices on Gingerbread in total.
Cyanogen - and today the worlds most notorious fire-sale-ridden tablet, the HP TouchPad, appears to be booting the best. But wait a second, doesn't the HP TouchPad run webOS?

back in June it was quickly pulled and delayed after a few other Moto devices received updates that caused more harm than good. Thanks to a nice community member we have a leaked version 4.5.606 to try out for you guys.
Sony Ericsson W8, a rather boxy looking device with three Android buttons on the bottom, a Sony Ericsson skin over an unbelievably outdated Android 2.1 Eclair, and the ability to be dubbed with the legendary tag Walkman. What we've got here today is a much more viable release in the "Live with Walkman", a device launching with the newest Android 2.3.x Gingerbread and working like a magical music machine, complete with Spotify gracing its first press release image - will this be the first device to launch with Spotify built in?
HTC Thunderbolt and have watched almost every other HTC device over at Verizon and elsewhere get updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, well we have some good news, sort of. While the update is still not ready for prime-time for some odd reason the official build has indeed been leaked. You can download and give it a run now, but most likely that bootloader hole has been filled.
