HTC Puccini spotted, AT&T LTE confirmed once again

18

HTC Puccini, Jetstream -- whatever you want to call it at this point hasn't exactly been a secret as of late. It's been spotted a number of ways in the past but now we're getting to see the device up close and in a more personal setting. The folks over at Engadget have got the images and specs for the device, if you find yourself interested.

Thus far, some confirmations -- 1.5GHz dual-core, 1GB of RAM, Honeycomb, 16GB of storage with a 10.1-inch WXGA touchpanel and of course, LTE. There is also that 8MP shooter on the back with LED flash. Jump past the break and you'll see the backside baring the AT&T 4G LTE logo.

Verizon peeps getting their Droid Bionic shirts -- a good sign there's actually a phone coming

22

Once upon a time we heard a story about a phone's release being delayed because Verizon employees didn't get their T-shirts in time. No idea if that was truth or fantasy, but it makes for a great story.

Looks like T-shirts will be the least of the launch problems for the Droid Bionic. Huzzah.

Thanks, Wiggy!

Acer Iconia A500 getting a small system update today

1

If you're rocking an Acer Iconia A500 (and haven't hacked the living daylights out of it!) chances are you'll have a small system update available today.  The update seems pretty minor, and many think it's preparation for the big update everyone expects soon to get the Iconia to Android 3.2, which is reportedly rolling out in parts of Europe for the A501 model today. 

Today's update (for those of you stateside) doesn't have anything new or improved that we can see, but it doesn't seem to break root if that's how you roll.  Everyone is discussing it in the forums, if you've seen the update jump in and share.

AT&T leaked roadmap for the second half of 2011 has plenty of Android on the way

17

It looks like we'll be seeing quite a few Android devices come out later this year on AT&T, according to this leaked roadmap for the second half of 2011.  Besides the Samsung Galaxy S II (supposedly the AT&T Attain) we see listed as the Samsung "Singa" SGH-i777, we also see another potential high end Android device from Samsung as the "Gidim" SGH-i927, which may turn out to be the Samsung slider we all saw earlier, or the Samsung Impulse, another 4G phone.  Also nestled among the various WP7 and BlackBerry phones is the Atrix refresh, the MB865 we've been hearing about. 

And of course, we can't forget the other end of the spectrum -- Huawei and Pantech look to be putting out more affordable (and probably less feature-rich) handsets this year as well.  What's a bit odd is what we're not seeing -- namely the HTC Holiday.  We won't read too much into that, as there's certainly other phones coming that aren't on this list as well.  If this holds to be true (remember, these things change all the time) it looks like a great third and fourth quarter for AT&T subscribers and Android fans.

Asus Transformer update includes Netflix support

22

We're you expecting Netflix support to come with Android 3.2 on your ASUS EeePad Transformer? I'm sure a lot of you were. Well, as we now know -- that didn't happen. The update rolled out and no Netflix support was to be found, unless you hacked it onto the device.

A new update is rolling out now though and it places your beloved Transformer at build number 8.6.5.9 and brings along Netflix support for the ride. You'll find some other software enhancements as well, such as an update to the the dock software -- that got bumped to EP101-0213. Want to see a video of it in action? Jump past the break or if you're just looking to discuss the update, you can hit the Android Central forums.

Thanks, Mason!

And yet another ThunderBolt Gingerbread RUU comes forward

15

We've lost track of just how many Gingerbread builds have leaked for the HTC Thunderbolt, but a new one's just appeared in RUU form. Ol' Football just dropped build 2.11.605.0. And being an RUU, it means you'll be wiping your phone if you run it in that form and don't want for a little additional hackery.

The good news is that work is obviously continuing on Android 2.3 builds for the 'Bolt. So hopefully we'll have a relatively bug-free upgrade when the time comes. (Knock on wood.)

Droid Bionic shows off its bionic eye in this boot-up video

24


Youtube link for mobile viewing

Well, we knew it was coming eventually. User hksscom on YouTube has posted a video of the Motorola Droid Bionic's bootup sequence. The video shows off the iconic Droid eye winking and moving. After the sequence, the video shows off some new Blur design and runs the phone through a quick speed test. At this point we've seen ad leaks from Best Buy, specs, a since-killed commercial, and possible launch date. So, Verizon, can we just get that official announcement already?

Radio Shack teasing a white EVO 3D, coming Sept. 9

28

Read our EVO 3D review

There's something rather ironic about Radio Shack teasing exclusivity on a white HTC EVO 3D on Instagram, which is still iOS-only. But whatever. Radio Shack's teasing exclusivity on a white EVO 3D. And it's coming Sept. 9. And it's on Sprint. Huzzah.

Sony Tablet S outed, reportedly coming early September

10

Sony's mystical wedge-shaped tablet codenamed "S1" will launch this September as the Sony Tablet S, if a recent cache of promotional images uncovered by Engadget are to be believed. The leaked slides cover a wide range of Tablet S features and details, so we'll launch right into a good old-fashioned bulleted list of the highlights --

  • The S1 is now the Sony Tablet S, and is due for release during the first two weeks of September. An early September release window fits with what we've already heard.
  • You're looking at a 9.4-inch wedge-shaped device with a 1280x768 screen, 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU and 1GB of RAM.
  • The display is said to use the same "TruBlack" screen tech found in Sony laptops, which aims to improve contrast and color quality compared to standard LCDs.
  • There's a 5MP rear camera and 3MP front-facing camera for video chat.
  • It'll ship with Android 3.1, and though Sony has added some of its own apps, the UI still very closely resembles stock Honeycomb.
  • Universal IR remote capability to control TVs and home entertainment systems.
  • Like most modern Android devices, DLNA support is included.
  • PlayStation Certification is confirmed, and the Tablet S will apparently ship with bundled PlayStation games.
  • Other Sony services like Reader, Video Unlimited and Music Unlimited are included.

Looks like the Tablet S will offer some interesting hardware and software features in addition to its much-hyped form factor. We're looking forward to see more of it over the next month -- hopefully at a reasonable price point.
