Equipped with a bright 10.1 inch high resolution screen, high quality audio, large ergonomically-slanted keyboard with dedicated Android™ keys, touch-pad, multi-tasking capabilities, and desktop-class tabbed web browsing using Wi-Fi or the smartphone’s data plan, the innovative companion device is now more affordable, lightweight, and intuitive.
Motorola LAPDOCK 100 supports full multi-tasking - making it easy to respond to an incoming text or take a call while browsing the web, using any one of the thousands of Android™ apps available, viewing pictures, or listening to music.
At a mere 2.2lbs (less than 1Kg), Motorola LAPDOCK 100 is designed to be as mobile as its owners’ lives. Compact enough to carry in a back-pack or briefcase, use in the office, in the classroom, at a café or on the couch at home, the device’s up to five hour* battery charges the phone so a user never loses their freedom to be mobile.
Motorola LAPDOCK 100 is compatible with multiple Motorola smartphones, including Motorola ATRIX™ 2, PHOTON™ 4G, and DROID BIONIC by Motorola.** It will also be compatible with future Motorola webtop-enabled devices.
So when will it be available? The Motorola Lapdock 100 will be available online at AT&T on 10/17. It will also be available through Verizon Wireless and Sprint later this quarter. No pricing was announced as of yet either but you better believe we'll keep you all up to date on that.
The Xoom 2 hasn't changed all that much since we last saw it, though it is noted that these devices are as close to final form as can be. Looking at the Spyder though, we can see Verizon logos all over the thing, leaving no doubt about where it will drop.
Noted also is the info that the Spyder actually has a 1.5GHz processor but when it arrives in consumers hands it'll only be clocked at 1.2GHz -- nothing new but still interesting. Also, the back of the device is said to be kevlar coating, though I'm sure it won't be stopping bullets any time soon. More shots can be found past the break for you all.
The Samsung Stratosphere made a brief cameo at CTIA today, two days ahead of its official launch on Verizon, and we were there to catch all of it's full QWERTY, LTE goodness. The Stratosphere is Big Red's first LTE slider, and if you've ever encountered Sprint'sEpic 4G, you'll know what to expect.
The Stratosphere has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display that looks just as good as what we've come to expect from Samsung. The QWERTY keyboard doesn't disappoint, either. The slider mechanism works and feels great and you'll have plenty of room to let your thumbs do some walking. In the back you've got a 5 megapixel camera; up front, a 1.3 megapixel shooter.
Inside, it's got a 1 GHz single-core Hummingbird processor with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB system storage. Oh, and let's not forget Verizon's blazing-fast LTE. While the specs might not be the biggest we've ever seen, performance didn't suffer for it. The UI (yes, it's TouchWiz) felt zippy and smooth, and coupled with 4G data speeds, the Stratosphere should be able to handle most of what you throw at it.
The Samsung Stratosphere officially launches on October 13 on Verizon for $149.99 with a two-year contract. Until then, enjoy the photos and the video after the break.
It seems forever ago that BlueStacks was announced as coming soon but no -- it's finally here. In case you don't remember, BlueStacks is for now, a Windows application that allows you to run Android apps directly on your computer and easily switch between say Windows and Android.
The BlueStacks Android Player was released in Alpha form last night and to go along with that came of course, the Android app syncer as well. The App Syncer application allows you to sync any Android app on your device with the BlueStacks cloud service. When synced, the apps will then become available for use on your PC.
After having given it a go, I have to say it is pretty impressive. Most of the apps I synced worked quite well. Some apps did lag, and some apps for whatever reason refused to sync but that's to be expected as it is still Alpha testing. If you give it a go, make sure you send the BlueStacks team some feedback as that will help their offersings progress. You can hit the source link for more info plus, a demo video can be found after the break.
Note: You do need a Facebook account in order to have access. Other methods are on their way but for now, Facebook it is.
And here we have the AT&T Impulse 4G from Huawei. It's a nice little entry-level phone, with a 3.8-inch display running Android 2.2. Not a whole lot to say -- it's snappy enough and has a 5MP camera. And while being a little portly, it still feels pretty good in the hand. It also feels good in the wallet -- it's just $29 on contract.
If there's anything we love more than a tech company that's constantly pushing the envelope and developing new things, it's one that has a sense of humor whilst doing it. We're assuming that Qualcomm hasn't really developed a working bug circus to recharge smartphone batteries, but who can be sure? In either case -- it's amazing, or terrifying, and worth a look.
Covering all bases, the AT&T Avail from ZTE will be filling out the Android portion of AT&T's GoPhone Pre-paid services. This device features a 3.5-inch touch screen, 5- megapixel camera and runs on Android 2.3 OS. Other specs include:
Next up in the deluge of Android devices announced by AT&T tonight is the Pantech Pocket -- a unique looking device that AT&T says is focused on messaging and social entertainment. It's wide 4-inch SVGA (that's 800x600 for those following at home) should make for a nice experience using a touchscreen keyboard, and the mini-tablet form factor should allow for nice browsing and video playback. Check the specs:
Internal Memory: ~600MB plus 2GB microSD™ included.
User Memory: 2.5 GB included (Includes a 2 GB microSD Card)
AT&T hasn't forgotten the cost effective line of devices with their latest unveiling of their Android line up either. The Samsung DoubleTime specs fit that bill nicely, and while you won't be blown away with the specs it's still a worthy device to be picking up as a back up or for those in school.
Processor Qualcomm 600 MHz
Onboard Memory Supports 260MB
Android 2.2 (Froyo)
microSD™ memory card supports up to 32GB (2GB microSD card included)
3.2” full touch screen display with 320 x 480 and 480 x 320 (HVGA) resolution
You are for now at least -- going to be making use of the pink and white color scheme but you get a 3.2 MP digital camera with a camcorder, voice recognition, a dedicated function key for shortcuts and full QWERTY keyboard. Full press release is beyond the break.
