It's not all that much of a surprise at this point, but it finally is official. Verizon this morning announced that it'll carry the LG Intuition, the U.S. carrier's version of what the rest of the world knows as the LG Optimus Vu. The Vu, as you know from our full review, was LG's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note, which ushered in the 5-inches-plus era of Android smartphones. The Intuition/Vu...
We've been looking at bits and pieces of info about the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE over the weekend, and now thanks to an insider we've got the full set of training materials available -- including the full technical specs. The Victory looks to be one very solid phone, and should appeal to folks who want or need something a little smaller than the Galaxy S3 (Galaxy S III) but still expect...
Behold, the LG Splendor for US Cellular. This unannounced phone has been outed by a now--pulled LG product page and still-alive product brochure, as spotted by an eagle-eyed SmartPhenom. It looks to be a decent device, with a 4.3-inch display at 800x480 resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It's all powered by a Qualcomm MSM8655 processor running at 1 GHz....
We've received a few more specs for the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE, an upcoming (but as yet unannounced) Sprint Android smartphone whose existence we revealed on Saturday.
Until now, all we had was the name, the suffix of which obviously (and obtusely) points out that it'll run on Sprint's fledgling 4G LTE network. Thanks to a tipster, we can now nail down a few more details:
According to this Sprint internal employee promotion, the Samsung Victory 4G LTE should be on the shelves at your local Sprint store sometime in September. News that Samsung will be pushing out a bunch of mid-range Android phones has been kicking around for a week or so, but here's the first official looking word from a carrier about one of them. The supposed specs are a Qualcomm S4 with a...
Update 2: Everything's working now. Huzzah!
Update: HBO has removed that Jelly Bean line from the "What's new" section. So much for that.
The HBO Go app today got an update to support Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, as well as "performance enhancements and bug fixes." Unfortunately, it doesn't actually support any devices that are actually running Jelly Bean. Go figure.
As you can see above, you still...

Remember back in June when SwiftKey had a contest with Mobile Nations that offered three tablets as prizes to survey takers? The results are in, and some of the data looks pretty interesting.
Granted, the sample size and demographic make these results a bit skewed compared to a survey given at a grocery store, or even a carrier store (you folks are smart and opinionated), but it's nice to peer...

Sprint's slowly been ramping up its 4G LTE service, and today the carrier has announced four new cities with LTE coverage. They are:
Manhattan/Junction City, Kan.
Also, Sprint says it's turned on its revamped 3G service (this is all part of its Network Vision initiative) in Baltimore, Boston and Washington, D.C.
Sprint has a number of...
Intel and Motorola joined forces earlier this year - now it's time to see the fruits of their labor.
That's a big announcement, eh? Motorola and Intel, the marriage first announced way back in January at CES, finally appears to be coming to fruition. (Right on schedule, actually.) So what will we see when the two companies "take us to the edge" on Sept. 18 in London? Most likely, it'll be a...
Some good news out of the Sprint EVO 4G LTE camp this morning. An update apparently is rolling out that not only fixes a bit of wonk (that's the technical term, by the way) but also brings the updated Sense 4.1 along for the ride! That should be the same Sense 4.1 se showed you in a little preview on the HTC One X a few weeks ago. The Android version also gets bumped to 4.0.4, but that means it'...
