HTC ThunderBolt Hands-On and Unboxing by SlashGear

Behold the HTC ThunderBolt as our sister-site SlashGear unboxes it. The oddest thing happens when you first glance at the box - it's black. There's nothing on it! That is, until you get a closer look in the light. Just punched-out letters all around, HTC, Verizon, and ThunderBolt around the sides and the bottom, with a bunch of copyright information across the back. When you take off the top, the inside appears red. This is excellent packaging design if I do say so myself. Here at Android Community we'll have to wait until tomorrow (we hope!) to get our own review model in, but even from the video filmed by our main homie Vince, you can see the power emanating from the box just surrounding one of the most widely anticipated phones of 2011 (and it's not even spring yet!) Welcome the rain storms, thunderbolts (lightening?) everywhere!

The Mobile Revolution is Upon Us

Reading an article on the Harvard Business Review written by none other than Eric Schmidt, chairman and CEO of Google, I found that quite a few bells were ringing in my mobile-wired brain. This article took the future of our planet and the globalization of the societies upon it and said the the key to a positive future, essentially, is to deliver the goods to make it possible. This set of keys, he says, start at mobile devices and their geolocation capabilities and ability to give the user both information about where they were at the moment, "what they could do there right now," and etcetera, all of this delivered at scale.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 No-Froyo Due to Complicated UI

So you might have been here a while ago, right around ten days ago I believe it was, when we learned news of a stopping of updates for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 beyond 2.1, that means no Froyo for you. Sony's reasoning back then was that they'd believed, or decided, that the current Xperia range was better on Android 2.1 "coupled with Sony Ericsson's proprietary upgrades and unique hardware." Turns out that statement lead to a slightly more loaded one that most people missed.

How would you like to take a peek at one gigantically long tablet with Android 2.2 or Android 2.3 on it? Here's one right here, one we just got our hands on not a few moments ago at CES 2011 - a Hanvon HPad A116. This sassy slate has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a resolution of 1024 x 600, and a 512M mDDR, with 2GB of internal memory. Inside you'll find your choice of Android 2.2 or Android 2.3 (though I'm not quite sure why you'd opt for something older), and the entire system will be HEAVILY customized by Hanvon.

Notion Ink Adam Tablet Gets Hands-On from SlashGear [Video]

The tablet market is certainly one that's heating up, especially with CES 2011 fully underway. We know there's even more devices coming, most of which will be running Google's mobile Operating System Android. However, one tablet has managed to stand out even dating back to CES 2010, and that's Notion Ink's Adam tablet device. It's gone through plenty of transitions, transformations, and even a few hiccups, but now SlashGear has managed to grab some hands-on time with the device, in its latest iterations, and have some certainly positive things to say about it.

Hello, Android Community readers! As our team is frantically packing and getting ready for CES 2011, you may notice a bit of a slow down with posts. But don't worry, once CES gets up and running we will be covering the event to its full extent.

Nexus S Reviewed by SlashGear

With the upcoming launch of Google's and Samsung's Nexus S device, it harbors the official launch of Android 2.3, or Gingerbread, along with the first device to fully suport Near Field Communication, or NFC. It may have not had as large of an announcement as the original Nexus device, but it certainly doesn't lack the features we'd expect from a device like this. We've already unboxed the handset, and featured a quick hands-on, but now it's time for the official review from SlashGear.
