HTC EVO 4G Update to Gingerbread 2.3 Starting June 6th [Official]

It is official, starting Monday June 6th Sprint will start the rollout for Android 2.3 Gingerbread for their hot selling HTC EVO 4G we all know and love. The EVO has been one of the biggest selling Android phones aside from the Galaxy S and has been a huge success for Sprint. The update to that sweet Gingerbread was talked about back in April, then leaked a few days later. This will be official, and tasty just as Gingerbread has been.

HTC EVO 3D Possible Launch Date of June 24th

We all first saw the EVO 3D back at CTIA, we even had some hands-on with it. There has been talk and rumors about a release date for a while now but we still have not heard anything concrete. Apparently a flyer recently found by Radio Shack is noting the EVO 3D will be for sale starting June 24th.

Sprint Samsung SPH-D600 mid-range WiMAX Android phone leaks

One of Sprint's upcoming mid-range WiMAX Android smartphones has leaked, with the Samsung SPH-D600 turning up in the wild for a few blurry photos. Phandroid's tipster sent them the loot, a triplet of shots showing the DROID X-esque fascia, simple back panel and software screen confirming it's Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread onboard. Among the confirmed specs so far are a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 480 x 320 resolution touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel main camera, while there's also a front-facing webcam for video calls. That doesn't exactly make for a groundbreaking product sheet, but it should hopefully mean that Sprint can offer this 4G handset at a more affordable price. With rivals like Verizon releasing a number of 4G LTE phones at the moment, Sprint needs to claw some attention back to its own 4G offering. A $99 or lower sticker for the SPH-D600 could certainly do that, and we see nothing in the specs that would really prevent it. No word on release date nor official name at this stage. [gallery]

Sprint Motorola Phone possibly called the Photon 4G

We have been hearing for a while that Sprint would be getting another big device like the EVO soon but from Motorola, and that it was planned to be an Atrix-like device but with even more docks and accessories. We still don't know much, but I'm sure Sprint will be spilling the beans soon so stay tuned on AndroidCommunity. We are now hearing reports that it will be a device very similar to the Droid X2 and will be launching on Sprint with a dual-core and 4G both, Take that Verizon.

Hooray we finally got it! It's the coolest little tablet this side of the sea - only it's not just this side of the sea, it's all over the place. The first place we saw this device, the HTC Flyer, was back at Mobile World Congress 2011 where we got but a tiny glance at what it truly held for us. Then we got a better look at its Sprint counterpart at CTIA 2011. Now we've got a full-fledged hands-on look of the device and we're ready and rarin to go look at all of its insides.

US Galaxy S II variants named: AT&T Attain, Verizon Function and Sprint Within

Samsung's Galaxy S II is one of the mot coveted Android smartphones of the moment, but while Europe and Asia is able to play with the Super AMOLED Plus handset, North America is still waiting for its taste of overclocked Exynios. Now it seems US naming and carrier support has been leaked courtesy of a premature accessory listing. According to the Wireless Xcessories Group, their silicone gel back cover will fit the Samsung Galaxy S 2 Attain on AT&T, the Galaxy S 2 Function on Verizon, and the Galaxy S 2 Within on Sprint. T-Mobile USA is notable for its absence; that could be because the carrier isn't getting a version or, perhaps more likely, because aesthetically it is different and the gel wouldn't fit. Given the success of the original Galaxy S in North America, it's no great surprise that Samsung is working with so many carriers on its successor. Of course, we still don't know quite when it will arrive. [via Pocketnow]

Why 4G is Ape Spit to You and Me

Lets begin by noting that marketing, especially when it comes to technology, is all about making the consumer believe two things. The first thing a technology consumer should believe is that they need the technological breakthrough you happen to be selling. The second thing a technology consumer should believe is that your device or service is only good until you've got a newer product or service for sale. But what if you've got a product that isn't quite as good as your competitor? In the epic case of USA's infatuation with mobile network speeds, carriers have chosen the wrong path: aping one another.
