Radio Shack EVO 3D launch party

27

Read our HTC EVO 3D initial review


Youtube link for mobile viewing

Hi everyone, I'm Ashley Esqueda; you might know me from Twitter (@androidashley) or my show Techfoolery. In a stroke of awesome luck, Phil and the guys here at Android Central asked me to cover the Radio Shack launch party for the HTC EVO 3D in Hollywood, Calif. I'm a huge EVO fan, so I packed up my video equipment, put on a hip outfit, and headed to the green carpet!

It was a star-studded event, with celebs like "Chuck" actor Zachary Levi and socialite Paris Hilton making appearances, so it made for a fun night of merriment and technology. Black Beauty (the sweet ride featured in the Green Hornet) made an appearance to promote the 3D version of the movie and its availability on the EVO 3D, and club favorite LMFAO performed for attendees.

Overall, it was a pretty sweet event. Check it out!

Best Buy inventory screen shows Droid 3 on July 13 -- we've been here before, people

7

It's entirely possible that this Best Buy inventory screen indeed means that the as-yet unannounced Motorola Droid 3 will be in stock July 13, with a possible July 14 release. Yes, it could be true.

Of course, this is Verizon we're talking about, and ain't nothing official until it's official, ya dig? In fact, we've seen this sort of thing before. Anybody remember when the HTC ThunderBolt was slated to be "in-stock" at Best Buy on Feb. 14? And that obviously didn't happen, with release finally coming a month or so later.

So here we go again, folks.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 overclocked to 1.4GHz

16

Those of you who've picked up Samsung's recently released Galaxy Tab 10.1 may be interested to know there's now a kernel available overclocking its Tegra 2 processor to 1.4GHz.  This kernel uses the 2.6.36.4 base, BFQ I/O scheduler, and increases the voltages to supply more power required for the overclock.  You'll want to keep in mind this is a preview kernel so use caution when speeding up your Tab 10.1.  As always, root is required to flash a custom kernel.  Hit the source to delve further into the details.

Telenav 6.2 update now available free for T-Mobile subscribers

7

If you're using a Samsung Vibrant, LG Optimus T, Motorola Defy, Motorola Cliq XT, or a T-Mobile Comet, you can finally grab the version 6.2 update of Telenav from the Android Market.  We had a look at the new Telenav when it first rolled out a while back, and some of the new features are really nice.  One of the best features is the multiroute suggestions, which can give you up to three ways to get from point A to point B.  Other improvements include a new quick search bar and improved voice recognition.

While officially the Telenav update is only supposed to be available for the above listed devices, I'm seeing it in the Market for my Nexus One and Nexus S as well -- so if you're using a T-Mobile phone that's not on the list, give it a look anyway.  It's a great app that many users (myself included) swear by, and a nice perk from your carrier.  The download link is after the break.

New Android devices headed to Sprint, according to Q3 roadmap rumor

52

When referring to carrier roadmaps, you always have to kind of take them with a grain of salt as they can and often do change on the fly. That said, Sprint's Q3 lineup has just been broken down a little in rumor form, and it does have some Android devices on it that may be of interest.

The first item on the list is said to be the Samsung Epic 2, which will bring a 4-inch display, 1.2GHz single-core Hummingbird processor and a 8MP camera, all wrapped up in a nice QWERTY keyboard form factor. Next up, a full-touch 4G device from Samsung -- details here are lacking but given that the Samsung Within aka Samsung Galaxy S II fits this description nicely it'd come as now surprise if that's exactly what it was when it gets an official announcement.

If this roadmap turns to reality, that means two new Android devices on Sprint between July and September. Seems rather low to us but Sprint did just roll out the HTC EVO 3D as well and who knows what else could be added in the meantime -- or maybe they'll just ride out the EVO 3D through the summer.
