What Android Fans will be Doing on February 3rd at 3AM

Sleeping. Even if you're a developer who works until 4 or 5 AM even and sometimes especially on a weeknight, it's your duty to sleep through that time on that day because guess what? That's when Verizon releases the iPhone 4 to existing customers. Take a rest, take a nap, even watch a movie. It's your time to relax and smell the roses, because that phone costs $90 a month that'll be put to much better use for you -- soda pop and USB cords.

Sub-$100 Android and $10 data plan as T-Mobile takes on iPhone churn

T-Mobile USA is planning sub-$100 Android smartphones and super-budget data plans in order to stem the flow of subscribers to iPhone-offering rivals. According to the carrier, around 10-percent of US churn - users leaving one network for another - has been down to subscribers wanting AT&T's iPhone. In response, the carrier has suggested it will offer an even broader range of Android-based handsets, together with a $10 data plan. No word on when we can expect to see this arrive, however.

Mobile Phone Physical Modding Ups Game with Clear Case

And it's on an iPhone 4, snap! We need to step up with Android and crack down if we're gonna catch up with this fantastic modification. Closest thing I've seen to this on an Android phone as of late was someone scratching the black coating off of their speaker so that it'd be chrome instead. Wild.

Consumer Reports Cautious on Verizon iPhone 4 – Good News for Android?

There's a Consumer Reports article out today that suggests all would-be Verizon iPhone 4 customers should hold off on purchasing one - unless of course they want a "short-lived" device, that is. Consumer Reports goes on to note that iPhone 4 is beginning to "show its age" and will be replaced by mid-2011 by a newer model. What's this mean for Android? We can't be sure, especially since this same magazine warned consumers not to buy the original ATT iPhone 4 because of it's infamous antenna issue.

T-Mobile Face Slaps iPhone 4 on Verizon in New HSPA+ 4G Ad [Video]

In this brand new ad made to make it look like iPhone 4 is a newb with two suited jerks who are terrible at running, T-Mobile uses a fancy lady to punch the non-Android competition directly in the nose. Take a peek as T-Mobile notes how totally slow 3G is and how amazingly blazingly fast their HSPA+ 4G network is in comparison. Actual speeds aside, this is a pretty good foot stomp.

Verizon iPhone 4: What Does it Mean for Android?

The big question today on the Google side of the mobile world is - what will the iPhone 4, now carried by Verizon, do to Android's Verizon share? A few things we've got to take into account. First and perhaps most importantly - this new Verizon iPhone 4 DOES NOT run on Verizon's 4G LTE network, instead only running at 3G speeds. How much of a leg-up does this give the oncoming torrent of Android phones?

LG Optimus 2X takes on iPhone 4 in browser test [Video]

A new Korean video comparing the browser performance of the iPhone 4 and the LG Optimus 2X has emerged, and although it's not exactly scientific, the Android smartphone does seem to render faster than its Apple rival. The Tegra 2 smartphone is expected to make its debut at CES 2011 this week. Apple's mobile internet experience has become the de-facto standard by which smartphone browsers are judged, for many users, so this strong performance by the Optimus 2X leaves us hopeful. Still, without knowing the background to the test - such as what connection each phone was using, whether pages had been cached, or other details - it's hard to draw any more comprehensive conclusions.

iPhone 4 vs. G2 vs. Windows Phone 7: Grill Test!

The smartphone battle continues. As you know there has been a lot of argument lately about which smartphone is the best? With the recent make over of the windows phone operating system, everyone is wondering whether or not it competes with the iPhone, while the increasingly popular Android operating system is looking to take over the mobile phone industry.

Android for iPad and iPhone 4 on horizon with OpeniBoot update [Video]

The prospect of a dual-booting Apple iPad, iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS capable of loading iOS or Android is one step closer, with a new version of OpeniBoot that can apparently run on the newer Apple devices. Arch modder Hexxeh has been demonstrating the updated tool, which allows booting of unsigned code such as Linux kernels on devices. Until now, OpeniBoot has been limited to the first-gen iPhone, iPhone 3G and first-gen iPod touch. We're not quite at stable dual-booting stage yet, but if you've always liked the look of Apple hardware but miss your Android fix, this could be one way of achieving it. [youtube UIixUYaLufo]
