Samsung promises better battery life in 2012

For those of you with devices like the Galaxy Nexus and the DROID Charge, you know good and well that not all Samsung devices are top of class when it comes to holding a charge for an equitable amount of time. That's why it comes as awesome news this week the Samsung's vice president of product innovation mister Kevin Packingham has all but guaranteed they'd be making battery life more of a priority in 2012. Noting in an interview with CNET that they "don't want you to feel anxiety about your battery life" when you wake up and when you go to bed, batteries such as that which you saw in the RAZR MAXX, for example, may well be popping up in your next Galaxy.

Andy Rubin Discusses Android

This was a short but very interesting interview with Andy Rubin, vice president for engineering at Google, shots was dished out and a few things were kind of confirmed. Android is a well known open mobile OS and the most versatile OS of any kind. This openness is the key to Androids success, many manufacturers have adopted the platform and it is really taking off.

Inventor of the cell phone gave up his iPhone for a Motorola Droid

T-Mobile USA confirm more G-Series devices in 2009; likely to be HSPA

T-Mobile will definitely be releasing more G-series devices in 2009, almost certainly offering HSPA high-speed mobile internet access.  That's the not particularly surprising news from Neville Ray, senior vice president of engineering and operations at T-Mobile USA, who has confirmed that the carrier stands behind the Android-based smartphones in an interview with Fierce Wireless. Ray also revealed that T-Mobile USA are looking to double their "3G reach" in 2009, referring to the amount of coverage the network offers.  The device focus, however, will remain on handsets and consumer devices, rather than data cards, with Ray describing HSPA-enabled smartphones as satisfying a "sweet spot" for "compelling devices".
"Our plan in 2009 is to double the number of covered POPs and top 208 million POPs. We expect to be in more than 300 cities by the end of 2009. That takes us to competitive parity in most areas of the country with Verizon and AT&T" Neville Ray
Unfortunately the interview did not press the engineer on specific details of upcoming Android-based devices, meaning that overall it's slim-pickings if you're looking for hot new information.  Nonetheless, it seems to suggest that T-Mobile would be reluctant to pick up a handset such as the General Mobile DLST1, which in its current state lacks 3G support.
