HTC Evo Design 4G with World Phone Coming Soon to Sprint!

After blockbuster releases like HTC Evo 3D and the Evo 3D, HTC announces another Evo series, this one with SIM card support for world roaming, the HTC Evo Design 4G.

Rather than stuff it with more extra features, the Evo Design 4G has been watered down to minimal necessities with 1.2Ghz single-core processor, 1.3 megapixel front-camera, 5 megapixel back-camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4″ qHD screen, 3G and 4G WiMax.


Samsung Galaxy Nexus Announced!

You’ve probably heard this already (or at least someone probably told you last night or this morning), Google and Samsung has just announced the 3rd generation Nexus series after the Nexus One and S, the Galaxy Nexus!

The cream of the crop Galaxy Nexus comes with the latest Android 4.0 operating system, which touts cool features like face recognition unlock screen, merged OS with other Android tablet devices (meaning Android 4.0 can be used with phone or tablet), intellectual voice commands, Android Beam NFC-based mobile sharing, 1080P video camcorder with real-time morphing abilities, a whopping 4.65-inch AMOLED screen with 1280×800 pixel resolution (higher than any other smartphone on the planet), and Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.


AT&T Galaxy S2 Review!

AT&T’s Galaxy S2 Android smartphone is nearly identical to the “first” international version, which I tried months ago when it first came out except the edges are bit more polished and there are four capacitative menu buttons at the bottom instead of just three.

Best Display on Market – AMOLED 4.3″ Screen

Nexus Prime Launch Date! – November 3rd!

Nexus Prime launch date?  Although it’s not official by any means, insider sources say that it will be November 3rd.

Will you be getting one on launch date?

The idea I’m getting from official testers is that the screen and user experience is much better in the Nexus device, and the overall advantage is the presence of Ice Cream Sandwich (I’ve personally noted this to be true). But I’ve also been told by those who have tested it that the RAZR is very fast, smooth, and has a great battery life. The screen, although not quite up to Nexus, is a big improvement over the Bionic for those who didn’t like it. Verizon is very, very excited for both devices. I don’t get the feeling they’re “siding” with one over the other, but I can tell you that they never had a lot of confidence in the Bionic having a lot of staying power. Their decision to release the Bionic as is was more of a contractual obligation than a real belief in the product. They are much more invested in the RAZR.

Best Nexus S 4G ROM?

For those of you rooted Nexus S 4G users, you might want to upgrade your ROM and kernel to one of the fastest combos, CyanogenMod 7 ROM coupled with Trinity kernel overclockable upto 1.544Ghz stable.

Yesterday I was doing some Quadrant on this very setup and getting near 5500 on Quadrant benchmarks. Perhaps you can do better?
