Motorola X-Phone seems to be picking up lately. Things began with simple rumors about the phone being worked on to supposed confirmations coming from a job listing and talk of specific features and a possible launch date. On that note, it looks like the X-Phone hype machine has recently kicked into overdrive and we are now hearing comments calling the handset a "real breakthrough, a game changer."
Samsung has been on a roll as of late when it comes to software updates for their growing number of Android smartphones. From the Galaxy S II finally getting 4.1 Jelly Bean internationally, to Android 4.1.2 hitting most of their new flagship Galaxy S III smartphones. Today we can confirm the earlier delayed update is now arriving for Telstra customers.
LG has been working hard lately on their smartphone lineup. Their impressive flagship smartphone known as the LG Optimus G was met with great expectations here in the US, and has slowly arrived for more regions since.

HTC Vivid and previous leaks (even down under) had it titled the HTC Holiday. This 4.5" screen packing LTE smartphone is headed to Telstra and according to HTC is "coming soon".
Telstra has created the first Android-themed retail store, Androidland in Melbourne. Naturally various Android phones and tablets are on display, but more interesting is the Android marketing that positively saturates the space. And of course, there's nary an iProduct in sight.
