Droid Bionic apparently makes its Sept. 8 launch official on Twitter

Droid Bionic on Twitter

We’re not exactly fans of companies announcing news on Twitter — it’s just too easy to screw up messages in 140 characters. That said, the @DroidBionic Twitter feed has let it drop that Sept. 8 indeed is the day for the most recently overhyped Android smartphone (which earned its crown after surpassing the previously overhyped smartphone) Motorola Droid Bionic to “be in your hands.”

Android App Review: bytNotes

 bytNotes

If you’re anything like me, you take notes. I takes notes on Post-Its, I take notes in my schoolwork, and I take notes on my phone. What I haven’t been able to do up until now, though, is take notes and assign them to contacts. BytNotes looks to remedy that problem by letting everyone do just that.

BytNotes is pretty simple. You create a new note, then assign it to a  [Read More…]

htc_holiday_leak

We’ve seen the HTC Holiday in the wild already, but it’s nice to see a second device get caught on camera. This time around the phone is a little less broken and looks a little different since it does not feature the three connection pins on the two-toned back panel that we saw last time. Specs on the HTC Holiday include a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor,  [Read More…]

Droid Bionic shows up on Motorola’s store page

Motorola Droid Bionic

The Droid Bionic has made an appearance on Motorola’s store page, which would be far more exciting if it had a “Buy now!” button or something. But, alas, it doesn’t, and so what we have is yet another tease for the phone that was announced in January (see our initial hands-on) before being sent back to the drawing board for release sometime in September.

A bright side here is that  [Read More…]

Motorola FIRE looks hot in new promotional video

 

If this week’s announcement of the Motorola FIRE set your curiosity ablaze, feast your eyes on this new promo video in which the UK-bound device struts its stuff. You’ll have to wait until the end of September to grab one, but if you’re really burning up, this should hold you over at least for a while. To spare you all from more lame fire puns (I’ve got a ton), I’ll let the video do the talking. Enjoy.

 Sony Tablet S2

As we know it, devices can and often do go through many name changes before they actually reach consumers. In some case, the code names given to devices are much cooler then what they actually release under. The case of the Sony Tablet S2 fits into this section now that the device is suggested to be launching as the Tablet P.  Still no word on pricing for the 4G enabled, NVIDIA  [Read More…]

HTC Holiday caught again on camera, 4.5 inches of LTE heading for AT&T

HTC Holiday

Well lookie here, it’s the HTC Holiday, showing up a little less broken that the last time we saw it.  The folks at Engadget got their hands on some pictures and the specs, and it certainly looks like another home run by HTC.  Packing a 4.5 inch qHD display, 1.2GHz CPU (of the dual-core variety, natch) and a full Gigabyte of RAM, look for it to ship with Android 2.3.4 and  [Read More…]

YouTube link for mobile viewing

This one’s a simple one, but still worth your time. It’s called Sheep Impact, and the whole premise of the game is that you fly around in a hot air balloon, rescuing sheep that are inexplicably strapped to dynamite.

Sheep Impact is one of those “ascend when you touch the screen” games, so essentially, you’re trying to time to descent correctly so you can pick up the sheep (done by  [Read More…]
