One-of-a-kind Verizon Samsung Galaxy S II not found on Amazon [the old switcheroo]

Wha?

Take a look at the picture you see here.  Clear your head and take a long hard look at it (we’ll wait).  See it yet?  I’ll give a hint — it’s not a Samsung Galaxy S II with a big juicy Verizon logo up top, no matter how bad we all wanted it to be.  When we read the caption attached to this picture uploaded at Amazon, things start to make some  [Read More…]

How I do it: Listenin’ in the kitchen

Music in the kitchen

I don’t really have the luxury of using one Android smartphone or tablet all the time, but my usage cases don’t really change. And one habit I’ve gotten into is listening to music or the radio while cooking. The kitchen’s a precarious place to do that, what with all the heat, oil, water and lord knows what else flying around (never mind the knives.)

I’ve got my electronic  [Read More…]

Many Android fans are excited about the phone coming to AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, but Verizon fans should have the most to look forward to with an upgraded Galaxy S II LTE that Samsung plans to announce at IFA next week in Berlin.

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

Droid Bionic on Twitter

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 bringing 4G LTE to AT&T by Christmas

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…]
