Modu T-Phone reveal confirmed for Oct 10

Modu looks like to announce their new, Android-powered modular smartphone, the Modu T-Phone, within the next week or so, with news of invites for a press event in Israel being issued.  According to Gadgety, Modu has confirmed a press conference on October 10 2010. Details on the T-Phone itself are scant; like its non-Android Modu predecessors it's expected to consist of a core phone unit with a range of interchangeable "jackets" that can add new functionality.  Those jackets might include a physical keyboard (to augment the standard touchscreen), stereo speakers or even more unusual designs such as for gaming, while the core unit itself should have WiFi and either GSM or CDMA 3G.

disgo budget Android Tablet 6000 runs Eclair

£180 burning a hole in your pocket and a desire for a 7-inch Android tablet?  disgo have outed their latest budget offering, though a glance at the specs show the disgo Tablet 6000 doesn't necessarily only do budget functionality. For instance, there's WiFi b/g/n and a miniHDMI port, as well as two USB ports (one Host, one Device) and, according to disgo, a separate 2D/3D graphics chip capable of HD.  It runs Android 2.1, though sadly lacks Android Market access, and is available this month for £179.99 ($285).

Samsung Continuum for Verizon gets in-wild play

Leaked details of a new Samsung Galaxy S family phone, the Verizon Continuum, have emerged, and it's a curious development from the carrier's existing Samsung Fascinate.  The Continuum SCH-i400 has twin touchscreens on its front - one regular panel that Android Central believe to be Super AMOLED, and a smaller, narrow OLED touchscreen at the bottom known as the "Ticker". That Ticker can be used for news, weather, RSS or other alerts, phone notifications, time/date and as shortcut controls; it'll also work as a media playback control bar, and show new Facebook updates.  Swiping from side to side shows different control panes. Meanwhile there's a 5-megapixel camera, externally-accessed microSD card slot, dedicated camera key and TouchWiz; Verizon have also switched out Google for Bing, which is likely to disappoint a few people.  No word on how much this will cost, nor when it will arrive, but it's certainly a curious device.

Orange San Francisco budget Android phone unveiled [Video]

Orange UK has outed its latest Android smartphone, the somewhat bizarrely named San Francisco, and they're targeting the budget-minded masses this time.  The Orange San Francisco will cost £99 on the carrier's "Dolphin" pay-as-you-go plan, which gets you a 3.2-megapixel camera, capacitive touchscreen and Android 2.1 Eclair. There's also WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and GPS, along with 3G+ and an FM radio, while storage is a scant 150MB of internal memory and then whatever you slap into the microSD card slot (a 2GB card is included in the box, but the slot will support up to 32GB).  The whole thing measures in at 116 x 56.5 x 11.8 and weighs 130g, and Orange reckon you'll see up to 4hrs talktime or nine days standby. Unlikely to set the world alight, but the Orange San Francisco certainly adds to the options for entry-level Android devices. Update: Orange tells us the San Francisco uses a 3.5-inch 800 x 480 OLED display, which makes it a whole lot more interesting at £99. [youtube -vhx9AeD1x0]

Acer’s Liquid Metal Handset is Real, Features Froyo and Launching at End of October

Luckily, Acer's Liquid Metal handset will indeed launch with Android 2.2, and it should be hitting retail shelves by the end of October. In the UK.
