If you're in Canada and looking to pick up the  Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, you may want to check out Virgin Mobile. They are currently offering this device for just $349.99 with no contract, which looks like a great deal compared to some of the other carrier's prices.

Radio Shack memo says LG Thrill delayed until Aug. 21

7

This just rolled in from a tipster, and it looks like you folks waiting for AT&T to release the LG Thrill 4G might have to wait just a bit longer.  According to this internal memo from Radio Shack, the thrill has been put on hold until Aug. 21.  The Shack will continue to take pre-orders for the dual-core 3D handset until Aug. 15, and those of you that already have yours on order should be getting word from Radio Shack about the delay soon. 

No clue as to why it's being delayed -- and maybe this is just for Radio Shack and AT&T proper will release it sooner. Or, maybe they decided to throw one more party (actually, Gameloft has one scheduled for Aug. 10).  If you have any better theories, check out the hands-on and talk it up in the Thrill 4G forums!

Thanks, anon!

Leaked Samsung slider not the Galaxy S II after all, expect the svelte version we all know and love

19

Remember that Samsung Galaxy S II slider that we saw a few days back?  Turns out that it likely isn't the Galaxy S II after all, according to BGR, who leaked out the original images.  Just as we already reported, AT&T is now looking to release two new Samsung phones, one being the SGH-i927 with a sliding horizontal qwerty keyboard (pictured above, and mentioned here as well), and a more conventional styled phone that will be the Samsung Galaxy S II for the number two US carrier. 

While we still don't know all the details, the slider will be running Gingerbread and have a current version of the Linux kernel -- both very good things.  We also know it will have a nice looking sliding keyboard, and offer another great choice to Android fans here in the states.  We approve.

T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide review

9

Times are rough for fans of Android and QWERTY keyboards.  The top-dog performers seem to never have one, and the phones with great ones are are few and far between.  I know I love them, and I can't be alone.  When I heard rumors that the myTouch 4G was getting a Slide version, I was hopeful.  When I found out it would have better specs that the original myTouch 4G, I really started anticipating it, and when HTC announced it would come with a much improved camera, I got a little excited. 

The real question is, how well does this thing compare to all the hype?  It's the same question we have every time we hear about new high-end phones, especially when the new features get touted everywhere.  Hit the jump, and we'll have a look.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Gingerbread now ready ... again

1

 

Although Sony got a little ahead of themselves with the previous announcement of Gingerbread rolling out for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, they've gotten things back on track. Some of the first users getting the update notifications will be unbranded devices with carrier branded devices shortly following after. Once you get the update notification, you'll need to load up the PC Companion app in order to download and install Gingerbread but after that -- you'll be golden.

0

Fido, the budget brand of Rogers in Canada, is getting set to release some new Android devices. Starting in August, they will make available the LG Optimus 2X, Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and Samsung Galaxy Q. No official launch dates or pricing is found on the documentation but Fido does always keep their pricing at a minimum provided you sign on for a new 2-year contract. The most expensive device in their current line up right now is the $100 Samsung Nexus S. Another pic can be found after the break.

Sharp FX Plus shows off a bit more with AT&T branding

7

No, you are not going crazy, pictured above is not the Sidekick 4G, but instead the Sharp FX Plus, which may soon be AT&T-bound. A few days ago we saw some shots of a WalMart ad that showed off the device, but unfortunately it did not give a release date. The FX Plus will launch with Android 2.2, on a 3.2 inch screen powered by a 600mHz processor with 512MB of RAM. Pricing and release dates are still uncertain at this time, but this does appear to be one of AT&T's lower end offerings, which should put it at quite an affordable price. One more image after the break.

Sprint Motorola Photon 4G review - Part 1

121

Motorola may well have Sprint's best 4G phone yet

 

(Ed. note: We've had Sprint's Motorola Photon 4G under embargo for about 16 hours now, which is great for some initial thoughts -- and we've got plenty -- but it's not really enough time for a proper full-scale review. So we're going to break things up into two parts. This one tackles hardware and initial impressions -- things that don't necessarily take more time to effectively judge.)

Oh, Moto. What is this little piece of sexy you've dropped off in front of us? OK, maybe little isn't the right word. We're looking at yet another 4.3-inch black slab smartphone in Sprint's Motorola Photon 4G. And a dual-core phone at that. With 4G Wimax data. And it's relatively light. (Or at least relatively not heavy.)

After the break: Some unabashed love for the Motorola Photon 4G -- with a little tough love tossed in for good measure.

Sprint Premiere customers can now order Motorola Photon 4G

43

What makes a Sprint Premiere customer a "premiere customer?" How's about the ability to order the Motorola Photon 4G a couple days before most peeps? Last week we saw a lucky member get his device a bit early, and we went hands on with it back at the Sprint event, but now the wait is over. Premiere customers can now place orders for the device, and it will be publicly available on July 31 for $199 on contract.

White Samsung Galaxy S II pictured

39

British online retailer MobileFun has what seems to be the first official photo of the white Samsung Galaxy S II that was revealed yesterday. The white version, which so far has only shown up for pre-order at stores in the UK, will set you back between £410 and £500 depending on where you go.

Euros can pick up a white Galaxy S II from August 15. As yet there's no word on whether the US models will be available in white in addition to the standard black. Our fingers remain firmly crossed.
