Droid 2 world phone breaks cover, shows off new paint job

19

 

Curious what the Droid 2 world phone (also being referred to as the Droid Pro or "Global" edition) looks like? Droid Life got their hands on the CDMA-GSM device, and it looks like it's got a new paint scheme to go with it. No word yet on any other new features, though the ability to take this kid overseas is going to sit pretty with a good number of business-types, we reckon. Couple of more pictures at the source.

Update coming for the Evo 4G, will fix gmail sync, calendar edits (maybe more)

46

Sprint just posted that an update is coming to the Evo 4G. It says that Version 3.29.651.5 shall contain fixes for calendar event edit issues and syncing of multiple gmail accounts, both of which have been subject of complaints for some time now.

But wait. There's more. Maybe. Word of the update actually started late last night at SDX Developers, and jerdog says that in addition to the gmail and calendar fixes, the infamous 30-frames-per-second graphics cap is lifted, and the GPS reboot will be addressed. We're hoping to get official word on those last two, but we'll gladly take the gmail and calendar fixes, too. [Sprint via Android Central Forums]

Samsung says AT&T Captivate GPS is addressed in current update

50

 

Samsung just announced that the update currently being pushed to the Captivate -- AT&T's version of the Galaxy S -- does indeed include a fix for the GPS issues that plagued a good many of us at launch. Here's the official word:

An update to improve the Samsung Captivate's GPS performance is now available. Captivate customers will receive a notification on their device that an update is available and will simply need to download the file to update their phone. The updates will be pushed to customers’ devices over the next few weeks.

The update for the Captivate will also improve additional device functions, such as media scanning time, add the full version of Quickoffice and address Microsoft Exchange 2003 policy support.

If you haven't gotten the update yet, you can check from your phone's settings. (And ukulele_ninja in the Android Central Forums notes you can bypass the pesky one-check-per-24-hours thing by changing the date.)

HTC announced the Desire HD last week at an event in London. It's basically the global version of the Evo 4G, with some design tweaks (and no 4G, natch).

  • Adobe Flash support
  • Home media streaming via DLNA
  • E-books
  • Cached maps
  • HTCSense.com

Check out the video for yourself after the break. [YouTube]

During the event HTC flashed us a sneak peek of the new Sense UI, and it's definitely garnered some attention. As we've come to expect from the great community that is XDA, user DarkStone1337 nabbed a beta ROM of the HD and put it up for the masses. Join us after the jump to view the plethora of new features and a video showcasing them with the beta ROM.

Twitter for Android updated, loses some of its UI coolness

15

 
(Twitter pre-update, left, and post-update, right)

The official Android Twitter app -- cleverly named Twitter for Android -- just got another updated. There's no changelog just yet (it'll be here, and apparently we skipped the 1.3 update), but the cool little trending topics cloud is gone, the icons have gotten less attractive, and we kinda miss the bird looking at us. We have to hope there's something more than that in this update, and we're not alone in our disappointment. If you spot something, sing out in the comments. Thanks @macprv and Pepito141.
