Black Sony Ericsson 'Rachael' Android XPERIA Phone Looks Good

4

 

This isn't the first time we've seen the Black Sony Ericsson 'Rachael' Android XPERIA Phone--it already looked oh so good in black, in white, and its UI is simply to die for. These new pictures just show the Black 'Rachael' in closer shots, higher resolution, and better detail.

Obviously, these are just product shots designed to show the best angles of the device but we can't help but drool. We're itching for this Android XPERIA phone and we're hoping for Sony Ericsson to hit it out the ballpark with this. It's been too much good news to mess up.

When can we see the real thing?

LG's First Android Phone to be the GW620 Eve

2

 

LG has been rumored to put out an Android Device for as long as we can remember--original rumors had pointed towards three Android devices in 2009--yet we haven't even seen one LG Android Phone. Sadface.

Luckily, it looks like that's going to change because the LG GW620 Eve promises to be their first Android phone. NieuweMobiel.NL found some XML files on LG's website that detailed the LG GW620 Eve. The purported specs:

  • 320 x 480 pixel touchscreen
  • UMTS/HSDPA 3G
  • QWERTY keyboard

We're very excited to see what this LG GW620 Eve looks like!

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Getting Started Guide

3

 

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G isn't exactly new around these parts--we've seen the myTouch 3G as the HTC Magic many moons ago. But as much as you know about the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, it doesn't hurt to learn more. We've got our hands on the leaked Getting Started Guide for the myTouch 3G and though it details much of what we've already known about Android, it'll be incredibly helpful for those who are jumping to Android for the first time. If anything, it's a fun read for another mundane Monday morning!

T-Mobile G1 Gets a Minor Update

20

 

They haven't forgot about us yet. The T-Mobile G1 just got a minor software update that includes "permission and bug fixes" for developers, none of the fixes should affect regular users' usage. So what we're assuming is that this software update is the minor one before Android 2.0 Donut gets released and then we'll get another minor one after Donut to fix bugs on Android 2.0. That makes three updates to Android for the rest of the year, as previously rumored.

How many of you guys got the minor T-Mobile G1 software update?

They've also gotten a slew of pictures that showcase the Hero under the harsh light and the Hero really holds up, we're definitely growing to love the design more and more. This Hero is looking very promising..

Pre-Order T-Mobile myTouch 3G at Best Buy

5

It looks like Best Buy is joining the ranks of retailers offering the T-Mobile myTouch 3G aka the HTC Magic. Obviously, T-Mobile is looking to push out a ton of myTouch's and having Best Buy on their side certainly won't hurt their cause.

Reports from TmoNews show that you'll need to put a $50 deposit down in order to reserve your myTouch (it'll go toward the final price) and that for the time being, it looks like Best Buy will only offer the Ice (white) or Merlot option. If you're interested in the Black myTouch, you're better served buying through T-Mobile.

So who's buying their myTouch 3G from Best Buy?

Friday Fun: Weeds & True Blood Show Love for Android by Using T-Mobile G1

4

 

It's always fun to see mainstream use of the T-Mobile G1 and Android, especially on TV shows we're particularly fond of. Engadget noticed that on both 'Weeds' on Showtime and 'True Blood' on HBO, our cuddly little T-Mobile G1 and Android got a bit of face time. The screenshot above is from 'Weeds' and not only do you get the famed Android Robot in the call screen, it looks like this particular G1 has LOADS of notifications on the menu bar. We don't know about you, but we always try to maintain a clean notifications menu!

The T-Mobile G1 on 'True Blood' is less prominent (after the jump) but you can definitely tell it's a G1 by the Android hardware buttons, trackball, and of course, the Android chin. It's always a good day when you see your favorite little device showcased (well, kind of) in pop culture. Hopefully, this brightens up your Friday a bit and if not, the weekend is right around the corner!

Any 'Weeds' or 'True Blood' fans among our readers?

Will Android 2.0 Be Released Later This Summer?

9

We hate to start the waiting game so soon, especially since we're just comfortable and enjoying Cupcake now, but the AndroidGuys have reason to believe that Android 2.0 Donut will be released later this Summer. The developers of The Weather Channel Android application have admitted that the next update to their application, slated for late summer, will be built for Android 2.0.

This could mean a few things: The Weather Channel could be jumping the gun with an Android 2.0-ready update or Android 2.0 will be released by the time The Weather Channel update is available. Obviously, we're pulling for the latter. In the meantime, we wouldn't start any Donut-related movements, after seeing T-Mobile bungle the Cupcake release, it could be months before T-Mobile even acknowledges Donut on the roadmap.

T-Mobile Germany Releasing G2 Touch aka HTC Hero in August, Not July

2

 

We've been expecting a July launch for the G2 Touch aka HTC Hero ever since it's been announced but it looks like we'll have to push back our expectations by about a month. T-Mobile Germany expects to have the G2 Touch available in August and it's a safe assumption that T-Mobile UK will follow suit.

Since there hasn't been an 'official' announcement on the launch date of the G2 Touch this doesn't quite qualify as an 'official' delay but that's just PR-speak. We expected it to launch in July and we're going to get it in August--that's pretty much the definition of a delay. Either way, one month later or not, we're still insanely excited about the G2 Touch aka HTC Hero and can't wait to get our hands on it!

Google Voice Application Coming to Android

12

Google Voice, the revolutionary software that allows you to re-direct phone calls, transcribe voicemails and so much more is finally headed to our favorite smartphone OS, Android. We're extremely excited about Google Voice's implementation because we truly believe that it'll be an exciting service that'll fit a lot of Android (and Google) users' usage. Though we haven't tested Google Voice ourselves (we're still waiting on that invite Google!), we've heard nothing but good things about the service.

The registration for the Google Voice application for Android will continue to be invite-only but we hope Google will open it up to public consumption sooner rather than later. GigaOM has an excellent review on the Android Google Voice application and they're definitely excited about the possibilities. Google Voice = less carrier interaction, and that my friends is a wonderful thing.

How many Google Voice users do we have on Android Central? How good is the service? And what does an official Android App mean to you? Let us know in the comments!

Hit the jump to see screenshots of the Google Voice Android Application!

Sony Ericsson Announcing More XPERIA Phones, Possible Android Announcement

8

 

Honestly, we're not sure how to take this tweet from Sony Ericsson North America. They're hinting at product launches today but remain purposely vague on what product announcement it'll be. We're hearing reports that Sony Ericsson will announce the XPERIA X2, X3, and X5 (what happened to X4?) but we really have no idea.

What we are hoping for is official announcement on the Sony Ericssson Android 'Rachael' Phone. The 'Rachael' is easily our most anticipated Android Phone and we'd love to hear official confirmation from Sony Ericsson itself. We guess we'll find out in the next couple of hours. In the meantime, stay tuned to this space to see what device is up Sony Ericsson's sleeve!

Rumors Point to Acer Android Phone Launching in September

1

DigiTimes is reporting that Acer's Android Phone, the A1, is going to be released in September of this year. According to their sources, Acer will be releasing 4 smartphones in the September timeframe but only the A1 will be running Android while the others will be WinMob devices.

We're not sure if DigiTimes sources are rock solid but the Acer Android A1 Phone launching in September does seem to fit with previous rumors. So though we're not taking this as gospel, we're leaning towards believing it. What about you guys?

Three, Not Two, More Updates to Android in 2009

15

 

We previously reported that two more updates to Android would be released this year. We were wrong. It now looks like Android will get THREE updates. We're fairly certain that Android 2.0 Donut will be one of the updates but not so sure where Eclair and Flan stand in the mix. Either way, we're very excited to see what these software updates will bring to Android.
