Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman Smartphone Officially Announced

The last time we were speaking about a Walkman Android device, it was the 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W8, a rather boxy looking device with three Android buttons on the bottom, a Sony Ericsson skin over an unbelievably outdated Android 2.1 Eclair, and the ability to be dubbed with the legendary tag Walkman.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 Official 2.3 Gingerbread Build Leaked

If you are one of the many using the 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.

LG Gelato Spotted for T-Mobile

What you're going to see in the gallery below is a rather tiny image of the device you see directly below, save for one rather important marking: a T-mobile logo near the top on the front. This again may seem sort of unimportant since this device is set to replace the LG Optimus One, both of them being entry-level devices, save another rather important factoid: this device will be rolling out with NFC equipped. This will make the device one of only a few smartphone devices on the market today with NFC abilities, this aside the Samsung Nexus S and the T-Mobile Nokia C7 - a meeGo device.

Motorola Domino+ smiles with its mid-range specs

A few pictures lately have leaked regarding another handset by our good pals Motorola. This will be called the Motorola Domino+ and I'm not sure what to say about it other than it looks "cute" and will be a decent little mid-range offering over in China first, but might make its way elsewhere shortly.

Motorola PHOTON 4G Rooted with Massive Process

So there's this device called PHOTON 4G, a Motorola device that we've got a full review of and have been playing around with for about a week or so. It's got several awesome docks, the ability to work with Motorla's newest Webtop mode, has a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and feels really awesome to hold with its special diamond shape. Now we've gotta root it, right? Every great device such as this needs a bit of the ol' root. So what do the folks at XDA do? They find the most convoluted and insanely difficult process possible!
