Versions for UMTS, CDMA and LTE (all bases covered!)
Goldenstone also mentions that it looks like the hardware's pretty set and is lightweight, but that Honeycomb still needs some fine tuning. Needless to say, folks, we can't get our hands on this one soon enough. [Mobile01 via Engadget]
The changes that came along with the latest update to the Gmail app are pretty substantial. Google seems to have listened to the users, and gave us the two things we've been whining asking about the most -- decent priority inbox support, and sending from another address. And they managed to pull it off without slowing down the app, which is pretty damn important if you ask me.
The one drawback? This is only available for Android 2.2 or higher. We're seeing a lot of that, and we're bound to see more as Google updates its core applications to their 2.3 versions. That's called progress, folks. You can't stop it. Hit the jump, and see it in action.
It is pretty obvious by now that the creators of Fox's Fringe have a promo deal with Sprint because the Evo 4Gjust keepspopping up on the sci-fi show. The most recent episode featured Peter Bishop getting intel from team analyst Astrid Farnsworth using the Evo's video calling by Qik. Luckily for Peter, his choice of the Evo and Sprint let him take the video call without needing to hunt for an open WiFi network in suburbia. Head on over to the Android Central Forums to discuss all the Fringe Android sightings and check out the video past the break. Thanks to Dogan for the tip and video upload!
By now we all have heard about the Motorola Droid 2 that "exploded" while a man was talking and injured his ear.
New details from a Motorola employee suggest that the phone didn't really explode at all, but was dropped. Once it was cracked, the man held it to his ear, where it cut him due to the shattered glass.
If this is true, that's quite a publicity stunt from the guy claiming his phone simply exploded. The Droid 2 and Android in general was receiving a bad rap for this and it may turn out to be completely unfounded. [via Gearlog]
Funny story about this update, apparently. Motorola initially planned to push it out to a test group of 10,000 or so in the middle of the night Wednesday. Only, it forgot something: The Droid X has that built-in battery manager that by default shuts down the radios at night. And it's tough to update a phone that can't talk to the network. Just one of those things. We've got the full e-mail from Moto Matt after the break. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
