Nexus 4, a device manufactured by LG with software pure vanilla Android - a collaboration creating yet another true member of the Nexus family. This device is made to bring on the next version of Android, that being 4.2 Jelly Bean (the second iteration of the software still code-named Jelly Bean) complete with the updates you see in our full update guide. The body of this device rather similar to that of the LG Optimus G, complete with the same display, camera technology, and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5Ghz processor under the hood.
Snapdragon just announced that Android phones on Verizon will be the first to get access to Rigonauts. The new game, developed by Engient, will be exclusive to Verizon customers for a two-week period from 10/9 through 10/23. After that, the game will be available on the Google Play app store for everyone. The game is Snapdragon optimized, so it will only work on devices with these types of processors installed.
AT&T and LG have just officially confirmed the new flagship LG Optimus G superphone is headed to AT&T. LG unveiled the new smartphone late last month and until today we've only heard rumors of an AT&T launch. Today however we can now confirm the impressive quad-core smartphone is coming soon with 4G LTE in tow.
Qualcomm has just announced an all new line of mobile processors to join their growing set of popular and powerful Snapdragon chips. Better known as SoC (system on chip) the new Snapdragon S4 Play processors are a new dual and quad-core lineup with impressive power for all those entry-level devices.
Qualcomm's annual developer event they've just announced a brand new addition to the world of Android developers. Just like Qualcomm's exclusive Snapdragon GamesCommand app store, or NVIDIA's for that matter, they've today released the Snapdragon SDK to help developers dive further into the S4 platform and beyond.
HTC One X for AT&T is a different beast from the original (international) release in two rather important ways. First it's got a completely different processor, made by Qualcomm instead of NVIDIA, and second here it's carried by AT&T on a 2-year contract in the USA. Will this non-international release stir up the same positive reactions we had to the first release of this super hero phone, or are the two changes we're seeing here in software and hardware going to push this device in the wrong direction entirely?
HTC One X it intends to make a statement. Originally slated to be released on May 6 for $199 (with 2 year contract), it can be scooped up at Radio Shack for the amazing price of $149. This is a special pricing by Radio Shack is on pre-orders only. The price goes back up to $199 after the release.
Qualcomm has announced their earnings report, showing a pretty great Q2 of 2012. These results already have plenty of sales from their new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor for upcoming phones like the HTC One S, but with it barely hitting the streets surely Q3 will look even better.
Ice Cream Sandwich that task got a little harder, but Qualcomm is helping out.
Qualcomm is back this month with another interesting video showing off the power of their Snapdragon powered smartphones. Last year they released a video showing a Snapdragon processor being powered by a bug circus, as in real live bugs and spiders. This time around they tease the efficiency of the Qualcomm Snapdragon by sending a smartphone around the world on a single charge.
