Costco sets Motorola Atrix 4G at $150

15

Looks like that $149.99 price point for the Motorola Atrix 4G might hold up, as Costco has entered its initial price on the upcoming AT&T phone. Whether that's in reaction to Amazon's brief listing is anyone's guess, and it's possible that this could still change. But for a phone with as much potential as the Atrix 4G (check out our hands-on at CES), that's a very affordable subsidized price. Thanks to you know who!

Bluegrass Cellular gets Samsung Gem for a mere $59 on contract

5

Been wondering where the Samsung Gem is headed? Wonder no more, as it's appeared on regional carrier Bluegrass Cellular for the low, low price of $59 on contract. But for our money, we'd just buy this sucker at its outright price of $205 and skip the mess of contracts. That said, you're getting an entry-level Android phone, with Android 2.1, a 3.2MP camera and 3.2-inch touchscreen, all powered by an 800MHz processor. So it'll get the job done, but likely not win any awards doing it. One more pic after the break. [BluegrassThanks, @ibegary!

Fix for Nexus S rebooting coming 'within one to two weeks,' Googler says

15

You know that rebooting problem that's been plaguing the Samsung Nexus S since its launch? Sounds like Google's just about got it nipped in the bud, and a fix should ship in the next week or two. Googler Ry Guy posts as such in Google support forums:

The initial results of our tests look very promising. At this rate we will most likely be rolling out an OTA to resolve this issue within one to two weeks. We really appreciate your patience as we do our final verifications on this fix before sending it out.

Do us a favor though -- if it takes Google 15 or 16 days to get this pushed, try not to threaten anyone with a class-action lawsuit, m'kay? [Google Support Forums via Android Central Forums] Thanks, Grimmy!

Edited to correct that Ry Guy and Google's Romain Guy are not the same person.

AT&T's Motorola Atrix 4G, HTC Inspire 4G briefly listed on Amazon, then pulled

8

AT&T has yet to set a launch date or price for the Motorola Atrix 4G and HTC Inspire 4G, but Amazon isn't shacked to such trivial matters. The upcoming phones were briefly listed on the online retailer tonight but have since been pulled. the Atrix was listed at $149.99, and the 4.3-inch Inspire at $99. While Amazon often undercuts the carriers, there's not telling at this point whether those prices will be what we actually see once the pages return. And so, we wait once more. [Amazon: Atrix, Inspire] Thanks to everyone who sent these in!

LG Optimus 2X system, wallpapers, and ringtones available. Update -- live wallpapers, too

10

Good news for everyone looking for parts and files from the LG Optimus 2X, the files have been stripped from the phone and are available for download.  The system dump itself is about 275 MB and is the full dump from the Asian release of the phone.  Luckily, the wallpapers and sounds have been singled out, saving a lot of time for folks who don't have the time or the need to go through the system files.

For most, the system files themselves aren't of much use, but your favorite developer can get to work porting all the cool content (like that clock widget!) now that the files are available.  Enough talking about them, go grab them and enjoy! [Android Central forums -- system dump; wallpapers; ringtones]

Update: The four new live wallpapers are now available as well.  They work as stand-alone installable .apk files.  Be warned, they were designed for a phone with a Tegra 2 chipset, so performance may vary.  Grab them here.

Samsung Nexus S coming soon with AT&T 3G compatibility?

21

 

We've heard this plenty of times before. Heck, even Dave Dobbin, CEO of Mobilicity said it was going to happen at some point but now, we've got more evidence of it actually coming to reality. According to some documentation found over at the Bluetooth SIG, it appears the Samsung GT-i9020A has been registered which leads most to assume that "A" stands for AT&T. While that may be accurate let's not forget that also makes it applicable to each and every major GSM player in Canada. Such as Rogers, Bell, TELUS etc.

Given the history of Samsung devices being abbreviated by carrier letters in their naming; this seems reasonable. Not unexpected by any means but reasonable. The Google Nexus One made its rounds to carriers in every GSM flavor; it only makes sense this will eventually happen with the Samsung Nexus S as well. Be it in March or some other month, we won't be too shocked when it does arrive. [Bluetooth SIG via PocketNow
