Droid Bionic with its top off

16

Get the feeling that the Motorola Droid Bionic -- which is hitting stores sometime next month -- is in the hands of a few few testers? Yeah, us, too. Here's a new pic that was dropped into our forums. (Full disclosure: We've cropped out the beyond-spammy watermark on this pic; you can see the whole thing at the source links below.)

Anyhoo, not a whole lot to see here. Big battery (but will it be big enough?), the 4G LTE SIM card, and a spot for the microSD card.

Droid Bionic poses for yet another unofficial photoshoot

35

By the time the Droid Bionic finally hits Verizon shelves in September it’ll seem like an old familiar friend. Above is a shot from yet another impromptu photoshoot of the Bionic showing off its sexy physique. Unfortunately we don’t get a great look at the UI, but hey, we hopefully have only a month left ‘til we’re all able to feel one up ourselves. Until then, hit the source link for a few more shots, and try not to drool on your keyboard.

Pierre Cardin introduces first designer tablet in the UK

7

Pierre Cardin, the famous brand created by the esteemed fashion designer, has released a 7-inch Android tablet. This makes it the first UK designer tablet to hit the market.

The fact that it runs Android 2.2 (Froyo) shows that it isn’t packing the latest specs, but fans of high fashion might take an interest.

Here are the specs:

  • 7-inch 800 x 480 screen
  • 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • SD card slot
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 1.2MP front-facing camera
  • 720p playback
  • Android Market

Since this device has access to the Android Market, you will be able to use all of your Google services with it. The tablet costs £275 or approximately $450, so it's not a cheap device by any means. Anyone interested?

Purported Puccini screenshots show what HTC is doing with Honeycomb

2

Here's something to make your Friday even sweeter: Pocketnow got its sticky fingers on a slew of screenshots reportedly from the upcoming HTC Puccini, that 10-inch powerhouse tablet heading to AT&T sometime before year's end. The Puccini will be HTC's first stab at Honeycomb, and is rumored to be packing a 1200x800 resolution screen, a dual core processor clocking in somewhere in the ballpark of 1.2 GHz, stylus support and a shiny new AT&T LTE radio. Sadly HTC hasn't confirmed the specs yet, nor has it given us even a hint as to a release date, but trust us: after you catch a glimpse of the rest of the screenshots at the source link below, you'll be even more impatient for the Puccini's arrival.

Samsung Hercules spotted on Telus?

6

Last night Samsung Mobile held a concert in Toronto, during which they had a VIP event, and the folks at MobileSyup were able to snap a picture of an unannounced Android device. The device looks to be the Canadian version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is apparently launching as the Samsung Hercules on TELUS. As you can see, unlike the UK version (see our review), this device does not have an optical track pad, instead the standard four buttons we are used to on Android devices. This guy's also reported to be a larger 4.5 inches. Noyce.

While there is no release date, or pricing information, the fact that the device is in the hands of some folks is always good news. Will this be the next device that locks you into a contract, or got something else in mind?

Lloyd wants to splash on your EVO 3D, flashable .zip style [from the forums]

0

I know everyone got really excited when AlphaRev and UnrEVOked unveiled their latest project, Revolutionary, myself included. Now that we've had a few days to settle into and, simmer down, and enjoy our new, freer phones, I realized there was a startling lack of Lloyd splash screens out there for flashing and consumption.

Needless to say, that isn't an issue anymore. If your phone is S-OFF'd and just aching for a better splash than what HTC gave you, head on over to the Android Central forums. There's instructions, along with two different flashable zip files that'll make your phone feel more at home.

Android Kids App: PopOut! Tale of Peter Rabbit

2

Here's another nice title from the folks who brought us The Going to Bed Book. The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a story most of us should know, if not still love. And it's available on Android in beautiful fashion.

It's not cheap -- running $5.19 U.S. -- but you get the entire story, with animated pictures on every page. It's a "pop-up" book, meaning there are little "tabs" you can pull to also make the character do things. Plus you can tap on each word of the story to have it repeated, helping teach a child to read. The optional background music also is wonderfully done.

We're not completely sold on the pricing, but the app is really well done. We've got download links after the break.
