HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa Leak Final Software Builds

Remember all the way back to Mobile World Congress when these sassy little monsters were first revealed? It was a fine February morning when the HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa Facebook phones were first revealed. We had the briefest of hands-on with both of the devices and not a whole heck of a lot of additional news has come out since the intro. Now we've got a couple of final software builds leaking for the world - for you!

SPB Shell 3D Review [Home Screen Replacement]

Welcome to your first - no, second glimpse of a home screen replacement that you're going to basically flip out over - the first look you got was back when we were hanging out at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, at the official Google Pod where we were given a full tour. And what's this amazing environment called? SPB Shell 3D - it's an interactive 3D animated environment for you to work in on your Android device. It doesn't POP OUT at you, it's not that kind of 3D, it's made to work on ANY Android device with Android 2.1 and higher and it's set to work into the future without fail.

LG Thrill 4G Hands-On

Whilst having a nice bite to eat at an AT&T event this past week at CTIA 2011, we were given the opportunity to check out the brand new LG Thrill 4G, a 3D capturing and sharing handset that'll be released sometime this summer in North America. Now, before we get too far figuring out how many 3D devices are now on the market, note that this device is set to be the USA version of the LG Optimus 3D, a phone we got a short peek at during Mobile World Congress 2011 - this version is VERY* similar to that one.

HTC Incredible S blushes on Danish site

There's a listing of a sexy HTC Incredible S in Red trim on the site of a Danish electronics retailer. Aside from it's Fire Engine red paint scheme, there's nothing different from it's official variant. That also means it will have to be purchased unsubsidized, although there's no mention of price or availability on the site listing. The unsubsidized price hovers around $550 here in the US. And chances are, though, that users in Europe will be using the Euro-friendly GSM version we reported on last month.

HTC Flyer Available for Pre-Order at Clove, Coming April

All of you looking forward to the lovely bright and cool HTC Flyer Android tablet coming soon to a single hand near you can rejoice and be happy, Clove in the UK is currently taking pre-orders. They note that the device will be "landing" mid-April, but that they don't yet have a final price. Because of this, they note that prices will be adjusted before the devices are shipped out to those who ordered them early. This is the first tablet to be released by HTC, and it's essentially made for writing on with a stylus. Will it grab gold? We sure as heck hope so, the thing is gorgeous!

Looking Forward to a Very Android Experience at CTIA 2011

Have a look, if you will, at the tiny sampling of the booty we beheld back at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona. It was there that we witness the real wave of Android coming forward to meet the world, there we saw one gigantic banner greeting us like a big smile, Androids of all shapes and sizes peeking around corners and growing teeth to chomp our eyes out, everything we could desire! It was a sea of green, indeed, and we're getting pumped up to do it all over again in a week, this time in Orlando - right here in the USA at CITA 2011!

Samsung Galaxy S II hits the FCC

Looks like Samsung has just sent over the Galaxy S II to the FCC. If you haven't seen much about this phone you should most definitely look over a few of our hands on. It is a beautiful phone that is sure to make a huge splash in the Android phone market. Looks like today it hit the FCC with some AT&T 3G bands.

HTC Incredible 2 with Verizon Branding Found [SAME AS INCREDIBLE S]

You know how sometimes there's a phone in one country and they call it one thing, then there's that same phone in a different country and they call it something else? That sort of thing is happening right now with what AndroidSPIN has listed as a Verizon HTC Incredible 2. They've got pics of it from an unknown source and have a list of specifications for it that are suspiciously close to what we know are attached to the phone that just happens to look exactly the same: the HTC Incredible S, which we personally held and flipped over in our hands at Mobile World Congress 2011.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Dual-Boot Android / Windows 7 Tablet Available Today

Behold the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 dual-boot tablet that allows you to work in either Android 1.6 (weird!) or Windows 7 on demand. This device runs a 10-inch 1024 x 600-pixel touchscreen display, 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, has a total of 2GB of memory, connects via Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and has a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. The odd thing about this device (if all those specs weren't enough) is that we were introduced to a very similar tablet by the name of ViewPad 10 Pro, one that ran Android 2.2 Froyo, at Mobile World Congress 2011.

HTC ChaCha Considers an Additional Cha for ChaChaCha

Oh my goodness this is just silly. Apparently, according to HTC's spain Twitter account, they'll be marketing the HTC ChaCha as the HTC ChaChaCha. There are several reasons why this could be happening. The first and most obvious reason is that the HTC ChaCha is currently facing litigation from the company who feels that HTC's choice of the name ChaCha infringes on their company name which also happens to be none other than the same set of letters and capitalization: ChaCha. Will adding another Cha appease them?
