News On Two Anticipated Updates

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Software" @ 03:30 PM

Two little news bits on upcoming updates: First, the bad news. The myTouch Slide Android 2.2 update will be delayed due to unreliable Wi-Fi calling and a misdirection of which partition to store the update. HTC is working on the issues but no release date is set yet. Second, the good news. The myTouch 3G 3.5mm Jack and myTouch Fender LE Android 2.2 Froyo updates will be released beginning January 12th with all customer's receiving their update by February 1st. This update has been desired by myTouch fans since the release of the myTouch 3G updates in October and December of last year. Finally, the wait is over!

"UPDATE: Front facing camera is VGA. Will come in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage capacities. Samsung has announced a new Android-based Galaxy Player that will be showcased next week at the CES 2011."

We had previously heard rumors that Samsung may unveil the new Galaxy Player very early in January, but it is now confirmed that they will spotlight it at CES next week. The Galaxy Player includes Android 2.2, front facing camera, 3.2 MP rear facing camera, 4 inch screen and other goodies. The front facing camera may turn out to be the feature you never knew you needed, so it will be interesting to see how well it is received after the Player is available for purchase.

"The ViewPad 7 gets unboxed!! In case you missed it, its got a 7-inch display capacitive touchscreen with 800×480 resolution, phone capabilities, front and back-facing cameras, 3G connectivity, a SIM card slot, and Android 2.2 "Froyo"."

Pretty good looking tablet, advertised as a Smart Pad with a Phone! Nice additions include SD and microSD slots. The ViewPad 7 ships with a case, with the case differing by geography. If you're in the UK, you can take part in Viewsonic's upgrade plan where you get up to £125 cash back when you trade in an old laptop, notebook or netbook. No additional solid details are available, like estimated price or availability in North America.

Android 2.2 Froyo Arrives Today For T-Mobile myTouch 3G Users

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 01:00 AM

http://www.tmonews.com/2010/10/t-mo...nning-tomorrow/

"It's been quite a while since we've heard anything regarding the myTouch3G and future Android updates. A lot of you owners have moved on to bigger and better things but for those of you still holding on, or holding out for something better than I hope I have your attention. Beginning tomorrow, that's right, TOMORROW T-Mobile and HTC will begin an OTA rollout of Android 2.2"

The 2.2 Froyo update will be released as a staggered roll out, starting October 13th! This is fantastic news for us "older" Android users out there! But, unfortunately, this update will only be available for the original myTouch 3G and not for the myTouch 3G 3.5mm jack, myTouch Fender Limited Edition or myTouch 3G Slide. At least it gives me hope that T-Mobile hasn't forgotten about me and my update!

T-Mobile G2 Getting an OTA Update, Includes WiFi Calling, Hotspots

Posted by Jon Westfall in "HTC Android Phones" @ 07:06 AM

http://ip208-100-42-21.static.xda-d...ad.php?t=806266

Word is trickling through the grapevine that the T-Mobile G2 is getting an OTA update as we speak, enabling WiFi Calling, and mobile hotspot. Probably the quickest I've ever seen a ROM update, and it does remove one of the things I disliked about the G2 (lack of hotspot capability). Any G2 owners getting updated?
