Ars Reviews The T-Mobile Galaxy S II

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 11:30 AM

"Despite its extra 300MHz per core, the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II is no faster than its counterparts on other carriers, according to our tests."

Ars Technica has a nice review of the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II - with a bunch of nice performance benchmarks to take a look at. Depending on how you look at it, it's positive or negative (Negative in comparison with other carrier's versions of the phone, positive when compared to earlier versions of the Galaxy S).

Russia's Samsung Galaxy S Will See 1.4GHz In April

"Samsung may have the Galaxy S II on the way to keep its flagship spot occupied, but according to the latest rumors there'll also be a replacement to the original single-core Galaxy S as well."

Coming at the end of April for the Samsung Galaxy S: a 1.4 GHz edition! But the catch is that the phone will only be available in Russia in April as far as we know. It will replace the current 1GHz edition and will cost around $850 US.

Sprint Double Leak: Xoom and Nexus S 4G

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 10:30 AM

http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/18/...-logo-leak-out/

"If you've been following these here pages closely, you'll know that a little device named the Nexus S 4G is coming to Sprint's network, with the expectation being that it'll be announced at CTIA early next week."..."but what you're really eager to learn more about is that image of a Motorola Xoom with a Now Network logo on it, right?"

The first official pure Google "4G" phone that I'm aware of is on the way to Sprint and it looks like Sprint is adding the Xoom to their portfolio as well! This is some great news for Sprint! Some other good news is that Adobe Flash 10.2 has been released for Android and it supports Tegra 2/Honeycomb devices! Now it's not the full fledged real deal. Well, it is but it doesn't support GPU acceleration for the Tegra 2 so it basically won't do 720p playback well but it should handle most of your typical Flash browsing needs. Hopefully the release that supports the full GPU power of the Tegra 2 will come out soon but this is a huge step and should help hold people over! Is anyone who is on Sprint waiting for the Xoom or Nexus S 4G? Did any Xoom owners install Flash 10.2? We would love to hear from any of you!

New T-Mobile Device Release Dates Leaked

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 06:00 AM

http://www.tmonews.com/2011/01/lg-g...ates-confirmed/

There you have it folks! A leaked T-Mobile memo gave this info. The Dell Streak 7 on 2/2, the Mororola ClIQ2 on 1/19, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G on 2/23, and the LG G-Slate on 3/23. It's a tough call but I think I think the most interesting device to me on this list is the LG G-Slate. Coming with Honeycomb is a good first step but I'm looking forward to see if LG has any other tricks up their sleeve. Also of note, the Dell Streak 7 will be priced at $300 after rebate.

Have a Vibrant? Get your Froyo!

According to TmoNews Froyo is finally available for the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant on T-Mobile. It's taking a long time for the Galaxy S phones to get Android 2.2. I'm glad to finally see it coming to the Vibrant. Have you gotten it? How's it working for you?

Full Speed Ahead with the Galaxy S 4G on T-Mobile

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.betanews.com/article/TMo...g-4G/1295551061

"T-Mobile currently only has two phones capable of taking advantage of its HSPA+ "4G" network, the myTouch 4G and the G2, but on Thursday the carrier announced the first phone to be able to support the network's theoretical maximum speeds."

It was just announced that the Samsung Galaxy S 4G will be the first phone capable of utilizing the full bandwidth of the T-Mobile HSPA+ 21Mbps network. No other details were given about the new Galaxy S 4G device. I would like to know what's different about this phone than the myTouch 4G or the G2 that gives it faster network throughput. Hopefully all those LTE devices we saw at CES will be capable of utilizing the network bandwidth available to them when they are released. Has anyone run any bandwidth tests on their myTouch 4G or G2 when in and area with HSPA+ ("4G") coverage? What download speeds do you see? Do you notice a big difference when using your device in 3G coverage as opposed to 4G coverage?

Sprint Chops the Price of the Galaxy Tab

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 06:00 AM

http://androidandme.com/2011/01/new...99-on-contract/

"Word of a price drop at Best Buy for the Sprint Galaxy Tab leaked out via some images last week, but Sprint has beaten Best Buy to the punch and now list their Galaxy Tab for $299 on contact and $499 without contract."

Let the price drops begin! With all the new Android tablets announced at CES I was expecting prices on the Galaxy Tab to drop but this is a really big drop happening sooner than I expected. With a $200 price drop, a great size (at least for me), reasonable resolution for the size at 1024x600, and a Hummingbird CPU that probably has the best mobile GPU other than the Tegra 2 that's a great deal in my book! It may not be upgradable to Honeycomb but at least it does have Froyo now. While I wouldn't want an oversize iPhone and over-sized Android device could be very useful thanks to good multitasking, good notifications, and widgets. Is $200 enough of a price drop for you to buy one?

Samsung SH100 Camera Uses WiFi for New Features

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 08:30 AM

"Samsung's SH100 isn't the first point-and-shoot to have Wi-Fi, but it makes better use of it than most: You can use Samsung's Galaxy S Android phones as a wireless remote and geotagger for the camera."

I love when mobile device can be used together in cool new ways. This is a great example. You can use your Galaxy S phone with the SH100 as a remote viewfinder, to take pictures, and for geotagging. It also has DLNA built in so you can get your photos off with countless networked devices. I look forward to features like this being standard in all camera's and working with all Android phones. This camera is due in March at a price of $200.
