LG’s Optimus 2X Tegra 2 phone gets SlashGear hands-on treatment

We've been eagerly anticipating LG's Tegra 2 powered Optimus 2X smartphone ever since we first saw it leak out, and the fact that Motorola has since announced the ATRIX 4G doesn't dampen our enthusiasm. Over at SlashGear, Vince has grabbed some hands-on time with the Optimus 2X courtesy of NVIDIA, and managed to put it through its paces and even compare the Android handset to the DROID X. First impressions of the hardware seem good, though there are still questions over how well Android 2.2 - which the Optimus 2X will launch with internationally - handles the NVIDIA dual-core processor. Check out all the details over at SlashGear. LG Optimus 2X hands-on: [vms e2df9b6c000b75b5da10]

Android Skype HD video calling developed by NVIDIA for Tegra 2 devices

High definition Skype video calls could soon be a possibility on Android devices, with the news that NVIDIA has developed a Skype HD reference platform. However, you'll need a Tegra 2 based "superphone" or tablet in order to use it, since it relies on the dual-core chipset's HD processing abilities. Unveiled at NVIDIA's CES 2011 press conference today, and demonstrated on an Android-based tablet, the app will allow for cross-platform two-way HD video conversations between Tegra 2 based mobile devices and Skype's PC/Mac apps. It uses the SkypeKit SDK released in 2010. No word on when we can expect to see the app available, though we're presuming NVIDIA will be offering the tech to those buying chips. [via SlashGear]

ZodTTD developing a PSX emulator for Android

Those of you ex-iPhone users may be familiar with the name. He has been jailbreaking iPhone's for the longest and he's developed a few emulators for the platform.  ZodTTD is now working on bringing a Playstation emulator to Android. And he is partnering up with our current favorite Android emulator creator, yongzh. ZodTTD was likely persuaded to start work on Android after a petition was signed with 2,000 signatures from his fans requesting he bring his talents over to Android.

myTouch 3G Slide Pricing

We’ve heard so much about this phone lately except for the most important aspect, the pricing. That mystery has been solved with the latest leak to our friends over at Tmonews. It’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. It will be cheaper than the “Superphones” of today and given the fact that it only has a 600MHZ processor, this is a good move from T-Mobile.

HTC Desire Confirmed for March 29th Delivery in the UK

This little tidbit of information was brought to our attention not too long ago. A user in the T-Mobile's discussion forum has received a confirmation email from T-Mobile that said his phone was in their stock and will be delivered on March 29th. Some of you lucky enough to have ordered this, only have four days until it’s in your sweaty palms. Looks like it’s time to start stalking the delivery guy again. Let the countdown begin. This was undoubtedly the hottest Android phone around the web until the recent announcement by Sprint introducing the HTC EVO 4G. Nonetheless, this is still the most “Desired” phone among fans of Android. And if you choose the right plan, it can be yours for free. These next few months we are going to see a few powerful Android devices enter into the market from various manufacturers’. I can’t wait to see what’s next; I’m still waiting on a good physical keyboard “Superphone” to be caught in some spy pictures. [via t-mobile]
