Gaming on the Sprint Epic 4G

49

The Sprint Epic 4G brings a horizontal keyboard, and it brings some monster gaming power (as do all the other versions of the Galaxy S, of course). After the break, we take a look at the Asphalt racing game on the Epic 4G, which sports a six-axis gyroscope, which you can see in action.

T-Mobile Vibrant hands-on

31

T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S is known as the Vibrant, and it's as slim and sleek as its cousins. Same 1GHz Hummingbird processor, same 4-inch Super AMOLED display. T-Mo just had to show us how Avatar looks on the phone, and while it's not quite the same as in the theater, it's still pretty damn good for a 4-inch smartphone. Check it out after the break.

Update: hands-on photos!

HTC Evo OTA back in action

34

It looks like Sprint and HTC have re-released the OTA update for the Evo 4g.  We don't have any clues about what might have went wrong, but considering the reports of better speed and battery life from folks who successfully updated yesterday, we're glad it's back -- provided that little bricking thing has been fixed.

Today's update is a bit larger (~30MB vs. ~21MB for yesterdays) and we're seeing success from the forums.  We're in the process of rolling things back and trying it out ourselves (good luck Adam!), we'll update when and if anything happens -- good or bad.

To make things even more clear, Phil just got word back from HTC:

  • The OTA is officially back, and should be ready and working well.
  • If you updated yesterday, none of this applies to you, you're good to go and already updated.
  • No official word about what's going to happen with bricked devices, but HTC is aware and will take care of things ASAP.

Verizon gives new shipping date for HTC Droid Incredible

29

Still waiting for your HTC Droid Incredible to ship? (No, Verizon isn't dropping the DInc!) It seems like they have the screen availability issues under control and will start shipping out some more units shortly.  If you order today, your phone should ship be July 27. 

Hopefully the back orders are shipping soon, I know a lot of you guys are itching to get one of the hottest phones of the year in your hands, and so are we.  If you've heard any good news from Big Red about your order, holler out, and if you've been holding out until more stock arrives jump on it now while you still can.  [Verizon]

Samsung SPH-M910 (Intercept) photos leaked

11

Here's a few pictures of the Samsung Intercept (SPH-M910), another new Sammy to be released on the Sprint network (rumors say July 11).  Supposedly the replacement for the Samsung Moment, and after seeing these pics I have to agree. Should be shipping with Eclair (Android 2.1) and a 3.2 inch touchscreen, but not many of the other details can be confirmed.  We should know more after tonight's big Samsung event in New York, which we're covering live tonight at 6 PM EST.

What we can be sure of, is that the 4 row QWERTY with trackpad should appeal to people who need the physical keys, but need something a little smaller than the new breed of 4 inch plus superphones.  And it comes in pink.  Hit the break to see another pic showing a bit better detail of the QWERTY.

Motorola Droid Froyo build FRF84B leaked

38

Droid users you've got another Froyo build to play with -- FRF84B.  (Eyes playing tricks on me.  Thanks for the correction darkcomartist.)  Yes, that number should look familiar, as it's the same build that was called the final for the Nexus One.  We have no idea if this will be the final version from Motorola, but if you've been unofficially beta testing Android 2.2 on your Droid, you might want to have a look.

Get it HERE .  You'll have to be rooted, flash the file from recovery.  Then shout out in the comments and in the forums and let us know the good and the bad.  [DroidLife]
