Motorola Android flip-phone leaks

Images of a new Motorola Android smartphone have leaked, with the unnamed model having a flip cover form-factor similar to the Verizon Motorola Krave ZN4.  The touchscreen handset has a transparent cover and a row of touch-sensitive controls; it's also a MOTOBLUR device, it seems, going from icons on the homescreen. According to IT168, where the images leaked, the phone is in prototype stage.  Interesting it has dual network indicators showing in the status bar, which some are speculating could mean it has dual-3G capabilities for better coverage.  Other tipped specs include a 5-megapixel camera and 720p HD video recording. Of course, it could also be a Motorola-styled copy, running a ripped build of the company's Android OS and themed around their popular Ming/Krave design. [gallery] [via Engadget Chinese]

Vodafone 845 Android 2.1 smartphone leaks

Details on a new, ultra-compact Android 2.1 smartphone have emerged, the Vodafone 845.  As the name suggests, the handset is apparently headed to European carrier Vodafone, but going by the:unwired's anonymous tipster it's actually the handiwork of Huawei and is known elsewhere as the Joy. As well as triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSPA, the Vodafone 845 packs WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.2-megapixel camera.  We weren't joking when we said it was small, either; with a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen and dimensions of 100 x 55 x 13 mm it's actually a little smaller than the HTC Tattoo. Hardware controls include an optical joystick and a number of physical buttons, which should please those less enamoured with touch-sensitive keys, and apparently Vodafone's 360 networking and app platform is preloaded along with the usual "Google Experience" apps.  There's talk of a Q2 2010 launch in Europe, but no word on pricing at this stage.

Pasen Android MID5

Android is continuing is assault in the MID/Tablet market. This one comes from a company that is known for (knockoffs) MP4’s. But, this thing looks really good and I would imagine there are a few people that would love to get their hands on it.

A Black HTC Desire?

So far we have seen this device in two flavors, the gray one that we all know and love and in white. Now a black Desire has been spotted. Not only has it been spotted but it’s on sale for preorder right now at Amazon.

Cliq XT Coming In At $99

That's a great price for this entry level phone, especially since it has Android 1.5 and is a Cliq without the keyboard. Although this device has been covered ever since it was codenamed Zeppelin, I don't expect this to be a huge seller. But if you are in the market for a cheap touchscreen with extensive social networking capabilities then this is the phone for you.

LG introduces in Korea its First Android phone the Andro-1 LG-KH5200

BYD Alice Tegra-based Android tablet caught on video

With CeBIT 2010 going on in Germany we've seen various Android-based devices on show, as the Google OS gains traction among OEMs.  jkkmobile grabbed some hands-on time with the BYD Alice, which has a ridiculous name (for a tablet) but decent specifications. The Alice has an 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and is based on NVIDIA's first-gen Tegra chipset for HD video playback.  It has both WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as 3G, together with 8GB to 16GB of onboard memory and a 0.3-megapixel webcam.  The whole thing measures 210 x 120.5 x 14 mm and looks pretty darn appealing in the video below.  No word on pricing or availability, though. If you recognize the name BYD, that could be because of the Snaptop smartbook prototype from MWC 2010 last month.  That also ran Android, though on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with a custom UI and detachable wireless keyboard.
