HTC Sensation 4G now available from Bell

8

Today is the day if you've been holding out for the HTC Sensation to arrive on Bell. The device is now available through their website and local retailers on a 3-year contract for $149 with the no-contract pricing reaching $549. We've reviewed the HTC Sensation a few times now and needless to say it's an easy recommendation for anyone who's shopping a new a device -- even more so when HTC gets around to unlocking the boot loader. However, we can't forget the fact the Samsung Galaxy S II is also around the corner for Bell but if you're set on the Sensation you'll find the link below.

Sprint Photon 4G: Now 'coming soon'

18

When the Photon 4G was announced, Sprint said its first 4G Android device from Motorola would be coming "this summer." Looks like that's been bumped up to "coming soon." That doesn't exactly shed any light on when you'll actually be able to buy one. But any movement's better than no movement at all, right?

Droid Bionic launching Aug. 4, according to leaked screen

52

Might we finally have a launch date for the Verizon Droid Bionic? It just went through the FCC. And according to this screen shot we just received, it looks like Aug. 4 might finally be the day (which would match a third-quarter window noted previously). That would be just about seven months since the Bionic was announced by Motorola at CES. (See our hands-on.) And since that time, it's gone back underground for a hardware overhaul, and we'll likely see updated software, too. Neither the new hardware nor new software has been confirmed by Motorola or Verizon, however.

And all that said, here comes our usual "Launch dates are subject to change" speech. There's still nothing official, but this is as good as we've seen so far.

BTW: Note the confirmation of the Droid 3 launch date, too.

Our forums hit 1 million posts; now you can win a Galaxy Tab 10.1!

Another reason to celebrate this Fourth of July weekend -- the Android Central Forums recently passed 1 million posts. So to give back (and celebrate freedom and stuff) we're giving away a 32 GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. White or gray -- your call.

To enter to win, all you have to do is leave a post in this thread. It's that easy. Now, the fine print:

  • You've gotta be in the U.S. or Canada for this one.
  • This is the Wifi-only version -- no fussing around with carrier contracts.
  • We can't stop you from entering more than once, but we will know when you do, and it won't help your chances any.
  • Contest ends at 5 p.m. EST Thursday, July 7. We'll announce the winner live on the Android Central Podcast that night.
  • Android Central and Smartphone Experts employees, and AC Forums moderators (sorry, guys!), can't win. And if they even try to enter, we're going to take them out back.

That's it. Good luck!

Sprint HTC EVO 3D review

168

Mild-mannered high-end smartphone,
or a three-dimensional breakthrough?

 

There are a couple ways to look at the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. One is that it's a high-end smartphone, with the latest hardware and software you can get. Another is that it's a high-end smartphone with the latest hardware and software -- and 3D recording and playback technology.

There's a larger discussion to be had regarding 3D recording and playback on smartphones. Do we really want it? Do we need it? Are we just seeing first-generation tech growing pains? That's a discussion we've been having for some time, and we'll continue to have it.

But back to the EVO 3D. It's one of the first dual-core-processor phones to be released by Qualcomm (along with the HTC Sensation). It's one of the first to run the new HTC Sense 3.0 user interface. Oh, and it's the first 3D smartphone to be released in the United States. And it's following up one of the hottest phones of the past year or so in the EVO 4G. So it's got a lot going for it, and lofty expectations. Will it live up to them? Find out after the break.

HTC Sensation about to get an update?

20

What's this? This image submitted anonymously via the Android Central app shows a nearly 369-megabyte test update for the HTC Pyramid (aka Sensation)? Veddy interesting. We've got no idea whether this is the T-Mobile USA version, or the European version, but the latter recently saw an RUU leak out with a similar version name.

Either way, looks like someone's getting set to push out a sizable update.

SIM-free European HTC EVO 3D gets pre-order price and date

15

Many European retailers are taking pre-orders of the HTC EVO 3D (check out our initial review of the US version), but Amazon.co.uk is the first to offer up both a SIM-free price and a possible release date. Amazon's currently listing the EVO 3D with a due date of Sep. 12 and an unsurprisingly hefty price tag of £569.99 (~$910).

As we're always quick to point out, pre-order prices and release dates are never set in stone, and may be based off the retailer's best guess rather than anything official. While the price is about what we'd expect to pay for a phone like this, the release date seems a little wide of the mark given that HTC has already announced a July launch for the EVO 3D in the UK. With Vodafone being the only British network currently confirmed to be carrying the phone, we suppose it's possible that some sort of exclusivity agreement may delay availability of the EVO 3D through other channels for a few weeks, just as it did with the Sensation. Nothing has been announced yet though, so for the moment that's still just speculation.
