Sprint uses announcement of Nexus One to pimp Android 2.1 on Moment, Hero

Yeah, that's pretty impossible to read. Fortunately we're trained in the art of squint-eyed-reading, so we'll translate. The gist of it is that Android 2.1 indeed is coming to the Sprint Moment and Hero, and it should be relatively soon. Important parts in bold. What you need to know:With all the...

Better late than never: Samsung releases Behold II commercial

  So for reasons that currently escape us, Samsung has decided to release a commercial showcasing the Samsung Behold II--yep, that middling Android 1.5, TouchWiz UI running phone that never picked up much steam when it was released way back in November.

Motorola Cliq & Samsung Behold 2 getting minor updates now

 Looks like T-Mobile is starting to push out a minor update to both the Motorola Cliq and the Samsung Behold 2. Motorola had previously confirmed that an update would be coming to the Cliq this week, so it's not the biggest of surprises but it's always nice to have companies follow on their word....

Samsung Super AMOLED touchscreens for smartphones [AC @ MWC]

Samsung didn't bring much in the way of Android at Mobile World Congress, but it did bring a new screen technology that hopefully will make it into your pocket in the near future. It's called Super AMOLED (we'll point you to ye olde Wikipedia for the regular ol' AMOLED). And it's one of those...

Sprint rumored to update Samsung Moment to Android 2.1 starting Feb. 22

File this under "unofficial" for now, but we're getting word on dates for Sprint to update the Samsung Moment, which at current is still running Android 1.5. And even better is that the update reportedly may be Android 2.1, and not merely 2.0 as Sprint told us earlier. The first wave is said to...

Samsung Galaxy I5700 Spica Getting Android 2.1 in Q2

Looks like another Android phone is getting blessed with Android 2.1. And that phone would be the Samsung Galaxy I5700 Spica. We've previously heard that the Spica would receive Android 2.0 in February but we guess since 2.1 is the latest rage, that's going to be ignored. The Samsung Galaxy I5700...

Picture Of Samsung Galaxy 2 Leaks, To Be Announced At MWC ?
