HTC ThunderBolt. The phone was unboxed and given a quick walk-thorugh but it's obviously pre-release packaging.
Notion Ink, and the company is doing a little teasing with an official unboxing of the Android slate. You certainly get more than just Adam shoved inside a cardboard box; the packaging itself turns into a stand for using Adam on the desktop, such as when you've got a keyboard and mouse hooked up. There's also news that a software update will be ready and waiting for new owners to install, though we're guessing it's an Eden-related package rather than anything more significant with Android.

HTC Desire HD is in the house, and it's been a while since we were this excited about an Android smartphone. Packing the same 4.3-inch WVGA display as the HTC HD2 and HTC EVO 4G, the Desire HD throws in the latest build of HTC Sense with numerous improvements, including easy DLNA streaming, a new Car Panel interface, enhanced GPS functionality and more. We wasted no time getting the Desire HD out of its box and slapping a SIM card inside, and of course we made sure there was a camera trained on us throughout. In our hands-on demo with this production HTC Desire HD you can see some of the initial changes over previous versions of Sense; meanwhile the hardware itself is slick and tactile, a solid-feeling block of aluminum that owes a lot to the shape of the Windows Mobile HD2. [vms 150c77bda2eda01ae484] The only usability fumbles we've found so far are the slightly tricky angle of the lock button and a difficult-to-replace battery door; otherwise the Desire HD fits nicely into the hand. We can't argue with performance, either, the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (and 768MB of RAM) keeping things flying along nicely. Meanwhile there's 1.5GB of app storage on hand, and a microSD card slot down underneath the bottom panel. Some of the most useful changes are the smallest, in fact, like the new app-switcher bar which has been added to the pull-down notifications pane, and which shows the last eight accessed apps. We'll be putting the HTC Desire HD through its paces to see how the Android 2.2 smartphone holds up in the real world. Until the full review, enjoy the unboxing and walkthrough video! [gallery]
Samsung Galaxy Tab already up for sale in Germany, it was only a matter of time before we saw the first unboxing videos show up. Carrypad have acquired one of the 7-inch Froyo slates, and shot a comprehensive video detailing everything that comes in the retail package. That includes an AC adapter, USB sync/charge cable and a wired stereo headset with in-line microphone, together with some basic documentation. There are plenty of other official accessories, of course - including a keyboard dock and HDMI dock - but you'll have to buy those separately. [youtube TNUhmV6usGA]
