Rumors

Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming before the DROID Prime

I almost don't even know where to start. We've heard so many rumors regarding this upcoming device lately that things are starting to get a bit out of hand. First off, we are now hearing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will launch come November 3rd, on Verizon Wireless. They are known for launching devices on Thursday so this could be somewhat accurate. New rumors are also claiming the Galaxy Nexus will come first, and will not be the DROID Prime, more details after the break.

HTC Planning on 6 to 8 New Devices Over the Rest of the Year

HTC has confirmed that they will release between 6 and 8 new phones and tablets before the year is out. Unfortunately, the looming eve of Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango) means that these new devices will not be exclusively Android, but HTC did say that our little green friend will be powering the majority of the devices. Let's take a quick recap of what we know, and what may be in store. First up we have the all but confirmed HTC Puccini, who popped up in some very official looking photos this week. The Puccini is a 10" tablet, HTC's first, running Honeycomb (presumably 3.1 or 3.2). The tablet has been seen hanging around the FCC where it showed off AT&T's LTE bands. We haven't heard anything official on AT&T's LTE network, but if its cleared the FCC, the Puccini can't be too far off. Next up we have the HTC Ruby, another definitely Android device. We don't know too much about this one yet other than that it is destined for T-Mobile. There is a similarity in the camera interface in a leaked photo to that on the MyTouch 4G Slide. Because of this, we are speculating it may be the newest MyTouch phone, but only time will tell. To top it all off we have the HTC Ignite (a recently leaked Windows Phone) and a slew of new codenames HTC just trademarked. So our count so far is 2 Android devices and 1 WP7. That is a majority all right, but only 3 devices. That means HTC's cooking up some fancy new Android toys for us that will be here before Christmas. [via SlashGear]

HTC Trademarks Several New Names, Has the Need for Speed

Here come the leaks boys and girls. HTC has just filed for trademarks on five, count 'em FIVE, new phone names. This is the first we've heard of the Cheetah, Raider, Titan, Skyrocket, or Velo, so we don't have much to go by. With names like that though, I'd bet "fast" may be in HTC's marketing future.

Google Ice Cream Sundae Logo a new android flavor [RUMOR]

This weekend, Google celebrated the 119th anniversary of the creation of the Sundae, that yummy soda fountain confection of ice cream, fudge, nuts and whipped cream with a cherry on top. Yummy dessert to be sure. But blogs are ablaze that it's something more than a delicious ice cream parfait. Some think it's the new flavor of Android.

Motorola developing own OS? [silly rumor]

Motorola is working on their own OS? What? Back that up. Several blogs are putting forth the rumor that Motorola's friendship with Google is waning and that the cellphone manufacturer has been quietly hiring Apple and Adobe engineers with the aim of developing their own platform OS to compete with Android. The thinking is that Google is "shooting itself win the foot" with fragmentation problems, manufacturer support issues, and market saturation of so many Android phones, you can't tell one from the other. Can this rumor really be credible? We don't think so.

HTC Rep confirms new date for Thunderbolt, then pulls it back

The drama continues. Yesterday, an HTC rep confirmed on Twitter a new launch date for the HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon. According to Irran Shahid, who is reportedly the Regional Sales Manager for HTC, the new delivery and launch date for the Thunderbolt was supposed to be St. Patrick's Day, March 17th. Shahid sounded quite excited about it, which could point to HTC and Thunderbolt may have finally ironed out all the issues that have been plaguing the new 4g Android phone since it was first announced. Then again, maybe not as the "tweet" was pulled not long after.

Sony WalkMan Phones return

Last summer, we talked about Sony's plans to bring the Sony Walkman brand back to phones to create a media class smartphone. Back then, we were talking about a small 2.6" TFT display with a paltry 5.1 MP camera and 600 Mhz processor. There was also talk of a tablet which has of yet to appear. It may be better late than never, but we've now got word that Sony-Ericsson is gearing up marketing in preparation for a 2011 WalkMan mobile launch. And here's the poster to prove it ....

HTC EVO Shift 4G Poses for Photo, Loses the Protective Case

So far, the HTC EVO Shift 4G has been seen only in canned images. While the device itself isn't official, from either Sprint or HTC, by now we're just counting down the days until either company does make the device in question, a smaller variation of the original HTC EVO 4G, the real deal. In this photo, we see that the device does indeed have a smaller form factor than its predecessor, along with a unmistakable chrome bezel.

Android Honeycomb Actually 2.4, Launching in February?

Despite the fact that up until now, it's been a widespread belief that the codenamed Honeycomb update to the Android platform would be a pretty significant one, if these new rumors pan out, that may not be true at all. In fact, the Honeycomb update is now being said to be just Android 2.4, and specifically, Google is looking to hold off that 3.0 update until they've got something huge ready to give out.
