New Sprint Evo 4G video squeezes, teases

19

Go ahead and watch this video (after the break) of the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, but know this: The phone is not quite as short or as fat as it appears in this clip. Sadly, the same can't be said for some of us around here. [Youtube] Thanks, jxc!

Samsung Galaxy S gets a commercial

6

Hey look, it's a commercial for the Samsung Galaxy S! If the spot looks familiar to you, good job eagle eye, it's basically a 30-second version of Samsung's CTIA presentation for the Galaxy S. For those unfamiliar, it's a neat, comic book-like interpretation of how an awesome phone influences your daily life. Familiar or not, just watch it! [via androidguys]

Android Liquid e will cost $50 on Rogers, coming in June

2

 

We already knew the Acer Liquid e was heading to our friendly neighbors to the north via Rogers, that's old news. What we didn't know was when it'd release and how much it'll cost. According to mobilesyrup, the Acer Liquid e (which is the Acer Liquid with Android 2.1) will release in June on Rogers for the low, low price of $49.99 with new 3-year contract. That's a pretty good deal for a pretty decent Android device.

Plus, if you're sick and tired of AT&T handcuffing Android devices, an unlocked Rogers Acer Liquid e would work perfectly fine on AT&T's network. We're just saying..

Best Buy is now expecting HTC Hero ROM update by May 7

20

When we last left the saga of the HTC Hero ROM update, we were expecting it to come sometime this week. And the above leaked screen shot says that the update -- which we're hoping beyond hope is in fact Android 2.1 -- will "be in stores by this Friday, May 7." The note also says that the update will be available on HTC's website, will wipe the phone and could cause seizures in small pets. You've been warned. [XDA Developers] Thanks, Sporky!

Google Tasks mobile page for Android

16

 

There are a few good task managers in the Android Market, but I've been looking for a simple way to access my Google tasks lists.  Looks like Kevin over at Lifehacker stumbled across something that certainly does the trick.  Fire up your Android web browser and head to Google tasks mobile for Android [http://mail.google.com/tasks/android] for a slick web interface to Google tasks built just for the Android web browser. Does everything I want without all the overhead, and leaves precious app space for important things like Farm Frenzy.  If you're like me and just want a simple way to access your Google tasks, you gotta have a look.  [via Lifehacker]

Cellular South promises 'game-changer' amid its Android smartphone lineup

19

You gotta hand it to Cellular South. While major carriers (cough, AT&T) pass on the best devices Android has to offer, the best-kept secret in the Deep South promises "a whole new lineup of Android smartphones" including "one very special phone -- a true game-changer." We'll have to wait for the curtain to come off before we find out if that's the HTC Desire, which already has been confirmed for Cellular South, or whether it has another trick up its sleeve. [Cellular South] Thanks, Jeff, for the tip.

Update: Android and Me notes that the bottom bezel looks a heckuva lot like the Motorola Droid, which is a pretty good guess.

HTC Legend clears FCC, coming to AT&T or headed to Canada ?

3

The beautiful HTC Legend, with its unibody build and clean lines, is coming. The guys at Engadget have discovered that the HTC Legend has just cleared the FCC and is packing 850/1900 MHz 3G bands which means its just perfect for AT&T, Rogers, Telus, and other Canadian carriers. Which means that the HTC Legend is on its way to North America. Which is awesome.

We've spent some time with the HTC Legend and though it doesn't pack the spec punch of a Droid Incredible or Evo 4G, its uber-sexy design almost makes up for it. If it heads to AT&T, then AT&T's currently underwhelming Android lineup becomes instantly respectable. If it heads to Canada, then their already impressive roster of Android phones becomes even more envy inducing. Please AT&T, go and get this phone.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 makes cameo in Sean Kingston-Justin Bieber video

0

We'll preface this by saying we don't have any idea what's going on in the Sean Kingston-Justin Bieber super-smash-top 40-drop-it-like-it's-hot song "Eenie Meenie" other than there are a lot of 12-year-olds at a party complaining about "shorties" who are wasting their time. Oh, and there's a quick cameo by the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and its Timescape UI, which may also be considered by some as wasting people's time. Video after the break, if you're into that sort of thing. [via Twitter]

Oprah gets the Evo 4G before you do

17

You, sir (or madam) are not Oprah Winfrey. And so, you'll have to wait until the Sprint Evo 4G actually launches before you can get your hands on it. (For that matter, we're not Oprah, either, but color us special for having our own hands-on with the Evo 4G.) Anyhoo, the first lady of daytime advertised featured the upcoming device recently as part of her "No Phone Zone" campaign to help stop people from texting while driving. Check out the video after the break. Thanks, dtblair24.

We'd tell you why Google bought BumpTop if we knew why

4

 

Bumptop, a 3D desktop manager that's been implemented in Windows 7 and OS X, has just been bought out by the Google. Bumptop was a ridiculously slick experience that beautifies and changes the way you use your desktop. It was intended for touch-based devices such as tablets and offered users a 3D-space to store their files. We're not sure what Google has planned for Bumptop but if they decided to use it in future Android phones or ChromeOS tablets, we would be very happy. If Google just wanted to outbid Apple on another purchase, well, we would not be so happy.

If you want to get to know Bumptop before the plug gets proverbially pulled, the app will still be available for download for the next week, free of charge. Check out the video after the jump to see how Bumptop works, and see if it can translate to the Android (or ChromeOS) platform. What do you guys think? [via engadget
