Get voice calling on your AT&T, Rogers and Bell Galaxy Tab

13

If you have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab on AT&T, Rogers or Bell and wished that you could use it to make voice calls, you are in luck. XDA member ClubTech has released a method that works on these carriers that will allow you to bring voice calling to your tablet. Unfortunately this method will not work on T-Mobile due to its IMEI block (you'll need this method for that), and will not work on CDMA carriers, either, for the semi-obvious reasons. (Hint: They're not GSM.) Hit the source link for full download links and instructions to bring voice calling to your tablet! XDA Developers]

Gingerbread: What's the holdup? [from the forums]

Android Central Forums member Hearthatvoiceagain asks the question that's on everybody's mind: Where is Gingerbread? Google CEO Eric Schmidt said Android 2.3 is coming in the next few weeks, but it's been a month since the Gingerbread statue was dropped off at the Google Campus, and still we have no announcement. And that's a break from tradition -- Cupcake, Donut and Froyo were announced within a couple of week of their statues' unveiling.

So what's the holdup? Is Gingerbread just not ready? Is that rumored delay of the Nexus S true, and so we have to wait for Gingerbread? Or maybe everything is going according to Google's plan? 

And will Google unveil Gingerbread during a holiday week?

Join in on the discussion and let us know what you think.

What's holding up Android 2.3. Gingerbread?

Droid 2 Global officially acknowledged by Verizon on Facebook

8

Verizon has finally and officially, kind of, sort of announced the Motorola Droid 2 Global on its Facebook page. You've actually been able to preorder the Droid 2 Global for a while now, but now it's official -- and $20 more than its initial listing -- at $199.99 after two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate. In return you get the Droid 2 upgraded with a SIM card so you can use it overseas (forget about using it on T-Mobile and AT&T), plus a faster 1.2GHz processor.

It's also interesting that it's the lone entry on Verizon's DroidDoes site, cementing the thought that it has replaced the original Droid 2, which is just a few months old. Anybody buying now? [Facebook, Verizon via AndroidOS.in]

HTC Merge user-agent string appears, confirms our hands-on info

2

Looking for a little more news on the HTC Merge? We've gotcha covered. First off, that rumored launch last Thursday was never true (and obviously didn't happen). A quick call to HTC last week cleared that up -- it basically was PR whoopsie, same as when it supposedly was going to be given away as a prize in the Verizon Urban Challenge in Seattle.

So what do we have that's new? The user-agent string has hit HTC's servers. Not a lot there that we didn't already know from our exclusive hands-on -- QWERTY keyboard, 480x800 touchscreen, the usual audio/video info, blah, blah, blah.

What we still don't know is a release date. Nov. 23's been kicked around some, but with everybody's track record predicting guessing so far, we'll see it when we believe it. [HTC] Thanks, T!

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Tab available today for $649.99 outright

20

A reminder that AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab is available starting today. You'll be buying it without a contract -- that means unsubsidized, and that means you'll be paying $649.99. Data is $14.99 a month for 250MB, or $25 for 2GB. That's a lot of money, but you get a lot of hardware -- a 7-inch Android 2.2. tablet with 1GHz processor and dual cameras. Who's buying? [AT&T]

Samsung Continuum hands-on

15

We actually had our first hands-on with the Samsung Continuum long, long before it was ever announced, but now that it's official and available, we're going to give it the official treatment. It's the first phone of its kind, and I have to be honest -- the ticker fascinates me.  We'll see if it can live up to the expectations I have for it over the next week or so.  

In the meantime, have another look at the hardware and an overview of the ticker and its settings, video style, after the break.

HTC drops WiMax and CDMA enabled device off at the FCC --EVO Shift 4G?

21

While the information is slim, the smaller, finer details give us just enough to keep the speculation going. According to an FCC filing, HTC has dropped off a WiMax, CDMA enabled device to the FCC labs for testing. For those of you out there keeping track, these specs fall in line with that of the oft rumored HTC Knight / HTC Shift Evo 4G that's supposed to be heading to Sprint with some Android flavor. Many folks still question the reality of this device, as we noticed in our forums but if nothing else, this FCC finding could mean we are one step closer to seeing it hit store shelves soon.
