If there's one sort of device that we've over this past year come to find we're in no shortage of, it's Android "tablets". I put quotation marks around that word because as Android evolves and groups like Samsung bring out devices that bridge the gap, the word "tablet" will be used less and less by publishers while "Android device" used in a general sense will become much more likely a term for news releases. What we've got here, before that wave covers us all, is an Android device which has a 7-inch display, runs Android 2.3.x Gingerbread, and has about as many ports as you could ask for along the side.
So you're a lover of Android, yes? You love it so much you're willing to plaster your vehicle with it? We were glancing around Tumblr today and happened upon a lovely machine which can be tracked back to BikePics, a site that hosts... well.. pictures of bikes. Motorcycles most of the time, I'd say. This one's a Yamaha R15 sharp as a tack 2009 model in black, and the owner (whom we assume is either sitting there on that Ratnagiri India beach or is behind the lens of the camera taking the photo.
Earlier this month it was made aware that the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z would launch in India. The Desire HD has been released since then, but we have yet to see the Z hit Indian shelves. However, it looks like eager buyers will be able to get their hands on the Z starting next week.
As Android market share continues to grow in India, Olive Telecommunications is set to launch its on Android handsets in India. The handsets will be Android 2.2-based and should be shipping the first week of march.
The Dell Venue listed on Dell’s India website will be sold operating Android 2.2. Other specs include a 1 GHz processor, 8 MP camera, and a 4.1-in AMOLED capacitive multi-touch display. Like the other devices with Android 2.2, Adobe Flash 10.1 will be included enabling users to take full advantage of websites implementing Adobe Flash.
In the US, we tend to like Android devices with lots of features and most of us don’t mind paying hundreds of dollars to get the device we want. In other countries people like smartphones based on Android, but they want cheaper options too.
Micromax, an Indian phone manufacturer known for their entry-level affordable handsets, has just released a new entry-level Android device in India. Launching as the Android A60, also known as the ZTE Penguin, the interesting device will sell for 6,999 INR which is about $152.
We have heard a lot about the LG Optimus one over the past few weeks. Being one of the most solid entry-level Android devices it's proving itself to be more than just a cheap phone for users who can not handle a smartphone. Continuing it's domination of the lesser market, the Optimus One has hit India for Rs 13,500.
