Motorola ATRIX 4G HD Dock Review

This is a dock that'll allow you and your Motorola ATRIX 4G to work with any number of larger screens, connections to three USB ports as well as a 3.5mm stereo audio output as well as HDMI and of course, power. This dock can connect to a wired keyboard and mouse via the USB ports, but there is a wireless mouse and keyboard that works as well. When your phone is connected to the dock, your phone is transformed into the Motorola Webtop user interface, allowing you to work it as an HDTV (seeing this then on the tiny screen as well as the gigantic screen you're connecting to more than likely.)

Texas Instruments Touts Me-D

Earlier this week at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, we bore witness to a lovely presentation by Texas Instruments on their current plans for the future. This presentation was accompanied by a device running OMAP4, sending picture through HDMI to a projector, all of this controlled by gesture (for example, when anyone from the group wanted to move to the next slide, all they had to do was swoosh their hand through the air over the device containing the images.) One of the keywords that stuck out during this presentation was "Me-D" or Me-Dimension.

LG Optimus 3D official: 3D display & camera, coming to MWC 2011

LG has presumably realised that, with their 3D smartphone secret out of the bag, they may as well cash in prior to the LG Optimus 3D's official reveal at Mobile World Congress later this month. The company has pushed out a short press release confirming the Optimus 3D, along with a dual-lens 3D camera, HDMI and DLNA support. The display - which is believed to be 4.3-inches - is a glasses-free one, naturally; having to slap on a pair of 3D specs would slow things down somewhat. All the details - and our own hands-on feedback - at MWC very soon. Press Release:
LG TO UNVEIL WORLD’S FIRST FULL 3D SMARTPHONE AT MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2011 3D Recording-Viewing-Sharing of Life’s Precious Moments Anytime, Anywhere SEOUL, Feb. 1, 2011 – At this year’s Mobile World Congress, LG will unveil the LG Optimus 3D, the world’s first 3D smartphone offering consumers a full 3D experience right in the palm of their hands. The LG Optimus 3D addresses the lack of 3D content issue -- one of the biggest problems facing the 3D market -- with a complete platform for a one-of-a-kind experience on a mobile device. LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere. Further details and a live demo of the LG Optimus 3D will be offered at Booth #8B178 at MWC in Barcelona from February 14 to 17.

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G leaks again: no HDMI confirmed

Verizon just can't seem to keep the HTC Thunderbolt under wraps until its official debut, which we're expecting tomorrow. The 4G LTE smartphone has shown up in the wild again, this time over at AndroidSPIN, who also took the time to run down the specs. Biggest disappointments? The single-core CPU and absence of HDMI. The Thunderbolt 4G has a 1GHz processor - which scored 1926 in Quadrant - together with 8GB of internal storage, a 32GB microSD in the box, a 4.3-inch display, Android 2.2 and HTC Sense. There's also HTC Maps and Navigation, DLNA support and - they believe - an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera. Their source criticized the battery life, however, which we guess is a side-effect of accessing 4G speeds.

Vizio Via Phone and Via Tablet get official ahead of Summer release

Vizio's new Android-based tablet and phone have been previewed by the WSJ, with the Vizio Via Phone having a 4-inch screen and the Via Tablet having an 8-inch screen. Both will get Android Market access, according to the company, along with WiFi connectivity. The Via Phone has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing camera for video calls, while the Via Tablet has a front-facing camera and three speakers. Each will have an HDMI port and a similar UI to the Vizio range of HDTVs; there'll also be remote control apps, so that users can control their TVs from the phone or tablet. Finally there's Via Plus Internet service access, which means Netflix support thanks to Vizio's existing HDTV deal with the streaming content provider. Both tablet and phone will launch in summer 2011, pricing tba.

LG’s Tegra 2 Optimus 2X official: due from Jan 2011

The LG Optimus 2X has been made official, with LG promising that the Tegra 2 based Android smartphone will arrive in Korea come January 2011, and then "countries in Europe and Asia to follow." As well as NVIDIA's dual-core 1GHz mobile CPU, the Optimus 2X has a 4-inch WVGA display, 8GB of onboard storage and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. Up front there's a 1.3-megapixel camera for stills and video calls, while an HDMI port allows you to hook the Optimus 2X up to your HDTV. Handy, considering NVIDIA's Tegra 2 is capable of 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 playback and recording. One minor blip is that the LG Optimus 2X will run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, with LG only promising a 2.3 Gingerbread update at some point in the near future. No word on pricing. Press Release:
LG LAUNCHES WORLD’S FIRST AND FASTEST DUAL-CORE SMARTPHONE LG Optimus 2X with Tegra 2 Offers Top Multimedia Features for a Better User Experience SEOUL, Dec. 16, 2010 -- LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled the LG Optimus 2X, the world’s first smartphone with a dual-core processor. Along with more powerful multimedia features, the LG Optimus 2X’s high-performance Tegra 2 processor makes for faster, smoother web browsing and applications and lets users multitask with virtually no screen lag. “Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology so this is no small achievement to be the first to offer a smartphone utilizing this technology,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With unique features such as HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) mirroring and exceptional graphics performance, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones in 2011.” Developed by graphics processor powerhouse NVIDIA®, the dual-core Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip found in the LG Optimus 2X runs at a clock speed of 1GHz and boasts low power consumption and high performance for playing video and audio. Users will experience faster web browsing and smoother gameplay compared with single-core processors running at the same speed as well as instantaneous touch response and seamless multitasking between applications. The LG Optimus 2X offers 1080p HD video playback and recording with HDMI mirroring that expands content on external displays to full HD quality. The LG Optimus 2X can connect wirelessly to any DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible digital device such as HD TVs for a console-like gaming experience taking full advantage of the phone’s HDMI mirroring, accelerometer and gyro sensor. The smartphone also includes both rear- and front-facing cameras, microSD memory expandability, Micro-USB port and a hefty 1500mAh battery. The LG Optimus 2X will be available in Korea next month with countries in Europe and Asia to follow. The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The upgrade schedule will be announced in local markets in due course.

Motorola Olympus Gets Bought at Flea Market, Runs Motoblur and FroYo

One of the must-have devices of the upcoming new year, is the Motorola Olympus. While it may look like a larger version of the previously released Motorola Defy, there's a few changes included with this new device to make it one device that any Android fan would want to get their hands on. Namely, that display that's supposed to be larger than 3.7-inches, and the processor under the hood. For one lucky individual, who just happened to be in the right flea market at the right time, it looks like they get to enjoy the device well before any other consumer.

LG’s Tegra 2 Android phone leaks with Full HD support

LG's promised Tegra 2 Android smartphone has leaked, and according to the specs it looks like it will be quite the beast.

There's also a 1,500 mAh battery, microUSB, microSD and an unspecified version of Android which is "nearly" unchanged from stock. No word on pricing or availability, but we're excited already.

Advent Vega specs revealed: HDMI, SIM slot & more [Video]

Full specifications for the Advent Vega Tegra 2 tablet expected to drop at UK retailers PC World and Currys for just £249 have emerged.  MoDaCo received both the OEM spec sheet and the retailer's version, and turned up a few interesting tidbits not included in the official press release. Of note are the HDMI connector, four-finger multitouch support and integrated SIM card slot (though, with no mention of an actual 3G modem, we're guessing you'd have to supply your own); the battery life is also impressive.  The Vega is expected to hit retail on October 18th.
