HTC One S, only has a few design changes and will be for KDDI in Japan. Out of all the press renders leaked I think I'm liking the white model the most.
on McAfee's website. The apps in question are the usual low-quality, generally useless fare, promising video players, anime and sexual content, which they only deliver after stealing personal information. Good grief, they could at least have the decency to engage in some good-old-fashioned piracy while they're at it.
another Asian tablet that's releaseing already behind the times. This time around it's Japanese phone giant NEC, whose MEDIAS line is getting a tablet entry in the form of the 7-inch MEDIAS Tab N-06D. While the slate is kitted out to be a decent little tablet, it's unaccountably running Gingerbread, despite a release date nearly five months after the release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Good grief, guys, even Motorola is starting to work on ICS updates at this point.
Kairsoft has teased its latest game for the platform, Cafeteria Nipponica, and it's set for release this Thursday. While the company didn't say much about the game itself, their history and the title should be more than enough to get the gist of it. There's no mention of whether the game will be released in English right away, but considering their habit of renaming games for the western market, it seems unlikely.
a modified version of the Japan-only AQUOS SH-06D to coincide with the release of the latest Neon Genesis Evangelion movie. "That's nice," thought I, "it'll probably be a mildly lame tie-in with a themed case and a few ringtones, like the R2-DROID-2." Yeah, apparently not. Fan site EvaGeek.org got a loot at a preview for the upcoming device, and the level of thought and care that's gone into it is astounding.
Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Monkey Ball franchises, along with a few others. But they're not anywhere near finished yet: Pocket Gamer reports that Sega's online RPG franchise Phantasy Star Online will be heading to Android in late April as a closed beta. Phantasy Star Online 2 will be released for Windows, PlayStation Vita and iOS as well. The good news is that the game will be free (with in-app purchases). The bad news? It's only confirmed for Japan so far.
ELUGA (and its big brother the ELUGA Power) spotted at Mobile World Congress, by the sheer novelty that it'll actually be available outside of Panasonic's home country of Japan. It'll stop off there first, though: NTT DoCoMo has announced that it'll make the phone available on March 29th as the NEXT series P-04D. (See, it's not just US carriers that give phones new names for no reason.) After that, it'll head for Europe in April, where the ELUGA Power is already stocked for pre-order. If you're a European who's miffed at the prospect of getting the phone later, take comfort in the fact that your phone won't be colored purple like NTT DoCoMo's.
pushing out the Ice Cream Sandwich update to both the Tablet S and Tablet P in April, making good on its earlier promise. The bad news is that it's only confirmed for Japan at the moment; those with WiFi-only Tablet S machines in the US and elsewhere will have to wait an indeterminate amount of time to get their hands on the update.
teased a special edition Sharp AQUOS SH-06D phone for fans of Neon Genesis Evangelion, the popular 90s-era anime and head trip. Like approximately 65% of Japanese cartoons , Evangelion is about gigantic fighting robots and presumably the phone takes the theme from the futuristic interfaces found on the show.
