CDMA version of the Nexus One goes through the FCC

16

Don't want to get anybody's hopes up yet, but a CDMA version of the Nexus One has made its way through the Federal Communications Commission. Does that mean we're going to get the Nexus One on Sprint as well as Verizon? Not necessarily. It just means the hardware (Read our Nexus One review) has been tested and approved.

HTC Desire coming to T-Mobile UK on March 26

6

Good news for our pals in the United Kingdom: The HTC Desire is coming your way in a month. T-Mobile UK tweeted this morning:

The Desire will be available on the 26th of March. Thanks for all the questions. Keep them coming. Ryan

That differs from T-Mo's Web site, which still says the Desire is "Due April 2010." But regardless, it's coming. Stay tuned. [Twitter via Tracy and Matt]

T-Mobile did a good job in 4Q 2009

1

 

T-Mobile actually did well in the fourth quarter of 2009. They added 371,000 new customers in 4Q compared to losing 77,000 in 3Q. It's still not as good as what they did in 4Q 2008 (added 621,000) but it's a step in the right direction. Since they offer very competitive rate plans and we're the first carriers to adopt Android, we'll always have a soft spot in our hearts for T-Mobile, so it's good to see them improving their financial numbers.

To be fair, their boost in numbers were due in large portion to pre-paid customers (which are less valuable to the bottom line than contract customers) so it's not the most ideal situation just yet. Here are some highlights, if you're into looking at numbers feel free to hit the link.

  • T-Mobile's 3G network reaches 205 million people
  • 3.9 million 3G-capable devices on the network
  • Average revenue per user: $51

Gmail been flakey today? It's not just you

3

Yeah, we noticed. And seeing as how gmail is kind of the linchpin for any good Android experience, it's the sort of thing that we notice pretty quickly. But at least things are getting back to normal. You folks notice any issues today? [Google]

Rogers rebrands the Magic as Magic+

6

Just when we thought the Rogers Magic was out of the spotlight, Rogers has rebranded it as the Magic+. So what does that + bring? Reports are that it's basically the same, with the new Sense UI with multitouch to the device.

Yeah, it's not the new Sense, but it's Sense nonetheless. Oh, yeah, and reportedly the Magic+ will be receiving its own 2.1 update toward the middle of the year. With the addition of Sense UI and the hopes of 2.1 on the horizon, for $79.99 it seems like a pretty good deal. [MobileSyrup]

Video shows HTC ... something's camera in action - Supersonic or Incredible?

22

Look for this to get yanked down anytime now, but what you see above looks to be an HTC phone of unknown make, likely either the Supersonic or Incredible, depending on which way the wind is blowing. There's no look at the UI, and the vid's a little dark, thus the "Test under dark light source" title. Feel free to speculate all you want in the comments. [Android Forums via Phandroid]

A lot of Android users are Male

19

 

Hm, maybe those Droid commercials chastising "princess phones" really worked. According to an AdMob opt-in survey, 73% of Android users are male, that's nearly three-fourths of all Android users and considerably more than the iPhone and webOS platform which both have an ever so slightly more male userbase.

So the question is, why does Android trend male? Is it because it's nerdy and geeky? And if so, is it because there are more nerdy and geeky males than nerdy and geeky females? Or is it because their most successful phone (the Droid) eschewed soft curves for hard lines? Or maybe it really is because of the marketing?

It's likely a combination of reasons and something Android should be aware of. But one thing we want to know, what do the Blackberry and Windows Mobile splits look like?

The Motorola Backflip it ain't ...

2

Another version of the Motorola Backflip? Mmmm, not so much. This "MOTOROIA" device, it is completely lacking in the camera department, with an antiquated VGA camera, and even though they snuck in the hint of an Android software, but don't be fooled, it's not running it. Appearance-wise, the device looks pretty well replicated, but really of all the devices to clone, why this one?

Best Buy shipping the Motorola Devour today

5

BryonP points out in our forums that Best Buy Mobile is shipping the Verizon Motorola Devour on Feb. 25 ... which is today. You can snag it for $99.99 after the usual new activation/rebates/first-born, and free shipping is thrown in, too. If you're looking to get the Devour from an actual Verizon store, you're going to have to wait another week or so. [Best Buy via AndroidCentral forums]
