Just how afraid of Android is Apple?

iPhone leak

Our pal Rene at TiPB raises an interesting point: Look at how much of a nerdgasm has been created over these purported iPhone G4 (not iPhone 4G!) pictures that Engadget scored, just as pre-orders began for the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible. Put on your tinfoil hats for a minute, people. Do you really think Apple's as petty and paranoid about Google, Android and/or Verizon to leak this out on its own? (Personally, I wouldn't put it past them, though you'd think they'd come up with a better cover story than "lost it in a bar.") Anyhoo, let's hear it, folks. Whatcha think?

Sign up now to be notified when Adobe begins its Flash, AIR beta programs

Flash beta

Oh, my, you all certainly are excited about signing up to be notified by e-mail for when Adobe begins its Flash 10.1 and AIR betas for Android. And so are we. But do note that you're only signing up to be notified when the beta begins. It doesn't mean you're actually getting Flash next week (or even getting accepted into the beta program, for that matter), and we're not even sure exactly what's going to be involved in the beta, or just how usable it's going to be. Not to burst the Flash bubble, it's just that all you're doing right now is signing up to get a future e-mail. That's all. And here are the links to do it. [Flash 10.1 beta notificationAdobe AIR beta notification] Thanks to everyone -- and we do mean everyone -- who sent this in.

Video - Verizon HTC Droid Incredible in action

31

Some great stuff rolls in during the wee hours, and this is a doozy.  An actual demonstration video of the one and only Droid Incredible by the fellas at nerdstalkertv, shot during the 99% conference in New York.  It's an awful nice walk through of the software, and it really shows just how fast this phone is.  There's not much we haven't figured out already, but who cares?  It's a great video of a monster of a phone and a must see.

Hit the break for the video, keep the tissues to wipe your chin handy. Thanks, Patrick!

Verizon taking online Droid Incredible pre-orders starting Sunday

33

Verizon Droid Incredible pre-order

Not to be outdone by Best Buy, Verizon's in the middle of sending out e-mails announcing that it'll start taking online pre-orders for the HTC Droid Incredible starting Sunday which is just a matter of hours away. You're still not going to get it any sooner, but you can rest easy in the knowledge that you pre-ordered as early as you could, for what that's worth.

Also, the e-mail clears up the matter of the internal memory, noting that the listed 8 gigabytes of storage is less, confirming other reports. Thanks, Will!

Pre-order the Verizon Droid Incredible on Sunday at Best Buy

35

 Verizon HTC Droid Incredible

If you just can't wait until Monday to pre-order the Droid Incredible, you're in luck. Best Buy Mobile is doing pre-orders on Sunday -- as in tomorrow. This will reserve you an Incredible for when they're available in Best Buy stores, so you'll be going through BB, not Verizon. You'll also get the $199 price without the hassle of a rebate, which is very cool.

Here's how it's gonna work: You fill out a form, pay $50 on Sunday and get a $50 gift card, which also serves as your ticket to pick up your phone once it's available. Then you can spend the card on anything else you want. Just a few more hours to go, folks. [Best Buy]

Motorola Devour slated for maintenance update next week

1

Verizon Motorola Devour update

Word on the street is that Verizon's Motorola Devour is in line for a maintenance upgrade on Monday. No, it's not Android 2.1 or anything as sexy as that (the 2.1 update is still "under evaluation"). But here's what you are getting:

  • Improved response time when menu, home and back keys are pressed.
  • Adjustments to improve the accuracy of signal strength indicators on the display.
  • Stability improvements made to browser, contacts and VCAST Music apps.
  • Improved incoming call performance.
  • Volume keys now work when you're in the mobile IM app.
  • Fix for picture orientation on upload.
  • Fix to make it easier to delete POP3 e-mail accounts.
  • Changed display on the e-mail account setup.
  • Change to Exchange calendar agenda view to show meeting titles
  • Verizon.net e-mail accounts now auto-configure.
  • Improvements to ringer, voice dialing and multimedia audio when using a headset.
  • Update Google apps.

So, look for the update -- version CALAND_X_01.15.08P, if you're keeping track -- next week. And be sure to let us know if it makes your life any easier. Thanks, anon!

Xperia X10 now said to get Android 2.1 -- and multitouch -- in September

15

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

We're taking this one with a pretty big grain of salt, but word around the water cooler is that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 -- currently languishing with Android 1.6 -- will get its upgrade to Android 2.1 in September. And on top of that, it'll miraculously get multitouch, too, never mind the report that it's supposed to be physically impossible due to a hardware limitation. We're not getting too worked up over this as the X10 isn't actually available in the United States. But for everyone else's sake, let's hope September brings some good news.

WePad shows off with another video demo

16

WePad video demo

I'll be up front - WeLove the WePad. I'm all itchy in the pocket just waiting for it to hit the US shores. Today we get a glimpse of the Neofonie UI and I for one am loving it.  Big icons, widgets, and a sidebar look to be a great mix for an Android tablet.  The video shows something else to get excited over, the first half shows the WePad with a USB mouse attached.  Yes, a computer mouse on a tablet.  Maybe ports and connectors on a tablet isn't a bad idea after all, Mr. Jobs.  Later in the video we see another prototype using the touchscreen as well.  If you're holding out for an Android tablet, you gotta have a look.  At 450 Euros ($609.00 US) the WePad won't be the cheapest Android tablet, but after seeing the latest video, it looks like a bargain to me.  Hit the break for the video.

T-Mobile getting the Samsung Galaxy S, too?

6

Samsung Galaxy S

Not to be left out of the fun, T-Mobile appears to possibly be getting a phone that looks suspiciously like the Samsung Galaxy S. The Bluetooth SIG has approved a Samsung SCH-T959 following the Samsung T-Mobile naming convention with specs that point to the Galaxy S. Features listed for the device are a 4-inch AMOLED touch screen, Android OS, and TouchWIZ 3.0. Confusingly, the SIG report also calls the phone the T939, which is the Samsung Behold 2, but could just be a typo. [UnwiredView]

HTC wants you to name its next phone

22

In a nod to the power of social networks, HTC wants Facebook users to vote on the name of its next device. The options? Jovi, Zeal, Wildfire, and Festi.  No details about the device are given so we don't know if it's going to be an Android-powered, Windows Mobile-powered, or dumbphone-powered device or even what form factor it'll take. But even if with all that mystery, to be able to have a little say in what the name of the next HTC device is going to be is kind of cool.

On the poll, HTC cryptically says that they're looking for a name "that is playful and full of youth". And given that they're hosting the survey on Facebook, we can assume it'll deeply tie into social networking. Basically, there's a good chance that this phone isn't for the grown up in us. Hopefully, HTC continues this trend of customer input cause it's pretty darn fun.

Psst, our vote is currently in last place. Which name are you voting for? [facebook]
