Sprint Will Pass on The Nexus One

First Verizon, which was one of the launch partners for the Nexus One, now Sprint. According to Gizmodo, Sprint will opt not to offer support for the Nexus One. I’m not necessarily sold that this is a good move them or not. They sure could use a phone like this in their lineup. Sprint doesn’t exactly have the same assortment of powerful phones as Verizon so this is an odd move for them to make.

LG Aloha Shows up in Verizon’s Inventory

Looks like my earlier suspicion of the LG LU2300 being renamed ALOHA, aka LG VS740 as it’s called in Verizon’s system, has come true. Verizon will have an impressive Android lineup this spring/summer with the addition of this, another 2.1 device that also has a 1GHZ Snapdragon and other great features.

ODROID Gets Android 2.1

In case you aren’t familiar with the ODROID , the manufacturer, Hardkernel, describes it as an “Entertainment Device” with a focus on gaming. The Developer Edition is shipping with a Samsung Cortex-A8 processor clocked at 833MHz with NEON multimedia accelerator, 512 MB of DDR2 RAM, and 720p video output via HDMI, but only a 320 x 480 3.5 inch screen, a vanilla install of Android 1.5. Well, the 1.5 will be replaced soon by Android 2.1

AT&T picking up HTC Desire, Sprint grabbing HTC Hero2

BGR just received word from an unnamed source at HTC that states the Desire will be headed to AT&T while the Legend will land on Sprint. They also told them that Google will be looking to sell an AT&T 3G-compatible Nexus One directly through their web store, but the unit for AT&T network will be the Sense UI Desire. But unlike the current Nexus being only available via Google's phone site, there will also be an option for AT&T customers to pick this puppy up in stores.
