Cellular South re-confirms it's getting the Motorola Milestone

1

Remember how we said Cellular South said it would be getting the Motorola Milestone sometime in the future? That's still true. And today Cellular South officially said it's true. Really. And it's still saying it's just the tip of the iceberg. But it's still not saying when we'll see the Milestone, so we'll have to wait for that announcement. [Cellular South] Thanks to everybody who sent this in.

HTC bolsters its software side with purchase of French company Abaxia

3

HTC this morning announced it purchased French software company Abaxia, "specializing in mobile handset software solutions for network operators and handset manufacturers," according to its website.

That will beef  HTC's software side, no doubt, to go along with its purchase of design team One and Co., which first gained notoriety with the Windows Mobile Touch Diamond 2 and more recently with the new HTC Legend. We'll have to see if Abaxia's work makes it to Android in HTC's Sense user interface. [HTC]

Free* WiFi tethering available for rooted Evo 4Gs

25

If your Evo 4G's been rooted already (using either the Unrevoked or XDA method), there's now another Wifi tethering method available at your disposal, and all you have to do is load up a little application (just be sure to grab the latest version). This one is outside the confines of Sprint's official $29-a-month option on the Evo, so you're own if somebody shows up at your house asking about your kneecaps. (* - That's what we meant by "free.")

T-Mobile Nexus One unavailable on Google's phone site (updated)

2

If you want to buy a T-Mobile-ready Nexus One, you're going to have to look somewhere other than Google's phone site this morning, as it's currently not available there. This could just be another one of those temporary shortages that will clear itself up -- we've already seen that happen with the AT&T version, and it lasted just a few hours -- or it could me the beginning of the shutdown of Google's online phone store and the move to in-store sales. We'll keep an eye on it. [Google via Android Central Forums] Thanks, Selentic.

Update: And, sure enough, it's back. Phil wins $5.

Sony Ericsson 5.5-inch Android hybrid device in the works

2

Is it a phone, or is it a netbook?  With a 5.5-inch screen, a cellular radio, and a hinged slide-out qwerty keyboard, it's a little of both.  We don't know much else about the device, except what was leaked to engadget -- it is supposedly launching with stock Android 2.1 sometime this fall.

If it follows SE's track record with smartphones, expect to see it sometime next year, everywhere but the United States.  Please Sony, don't disappoint with this one of a kind gadget.  We all love the way your electronics look and feel -- even us Americans! [Engadget]

Motorola announces Milestone XT720 for Europe

5

Motorola today announced the Milestone XT720, the next variant of the same phone we saw destined for South Korea during Mobile World Congress (see our hands-on and video). The Milestone XT720 sports a 3.7-inch touchscreen at 854,480 pixels, 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash that can record video at 720p, an included 8GB microSD card and HDMI video out. It's been updated to Android 2.1 since we last saw it, and you'll have five home screens on which to work, all in a package that's just 10.9mm thick.

No word on pricing or which carrier's officially picking it up. Full presser, more photos and a bit of video after the break. [Motorola]

Sprint says Evo 4G saw record one-day sales, working to ease shortages

25

Shouldn't come as much surprise, but Sprint has announced that the HTC Evo 4G has taken over the top spot as its hottest one-day seller, beating out the Palm Pre (which just turned 1) and the Samsung Instinct.

Sprint didn't actually give any numbers (we've had retailers unofficially give us estimates between 25,000 and 50,000, and the developer of Radar Now! estimates as many as 45,000 to 60,000 devices activated over the weekend.

Sprint also acknowledged that some stores are having problems keeping the Evo in stock (that's a bad problem to have, huh?) and that Sprint and HTC are diligently working around the clock to increase inventory in all sales channels. Additional shipments are arriving in retail stores on a regular basis with many stores seeing daily deliveries.

Regardless, it's been quite the weekend for Sprint, HTC and -- judging by everything we see going on in our Evo 4G forums -- you, as well. Full presser after the break. [Sprint]

HTC Liberty could well be the AT&T Aria; HTC Bee may have eyes for Verizon

12

We're starting to get a few more details about a possible new Android phone for AT&T. Courtesy of ROM-chef extraordinaire Conflipper, we find this render of the HTC Liberty, which looks to be very similar to some leaked shots we saw of the Aria. User-agent profiles for both devices (LibertyAria) show a 320x480 touchscreen (we can hear developers grumbling already at that resolution).

Otherwise, not too much to go on just yet, and who's to say what name -- assuming any of this pans out -- AT&T gives the phone, and when it might ever see the light of day.

Meanwhile, Conflipper brings world of the HTC Bee, a 320x240 (remember those days?) touchscreen device that he says could be headed toward Verizon. And that's all we've got on that one. [via @Conflipper 1, 2]
