Recently, some new pics of the Motorola Xoom 2 and Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition have been leaked. From the pics we can see the some things have changed for the Xoom 2. The volume rocker and power buttons are on the back of the device now. Also, sources indicate that these versions of the Xoom 2 will come standard with LTE and will be as thin as an iPhone supposedly. The source also indicated that the tablets still need a lot of "baking time". They are very buggy with reboots and crashes right now, so that means there is no clue as to when these devices might be launched. For now, they are running the 3.2 version of Honeycomb, but there is no word yet on if they will launch with that or ICS. We will keep our ears to the ground for you. You can also check out more pics over at the Engadget article.

There is great news from Samsung for South Koreans today. Apparently, Samsung has not been one to "rest on their laurels" and is readying to launch a new Samsung Galaxy SII LTE version and a Samsung Galaxy SII HD LTE version as well. Of course the SGS2 LTE is nearly the same as the OG SGS2, except for the slightly upgraded 1.5GHz CPU, and an added LTE radio; however, the SGS2 LTE HD also adds a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with 1280 x 720 resolution. Talk about a nice upgrade... Let's cross our fingers that it doesn't take another 6 months to get these in the States, and that Verizon will get one.
Here's a quote from the Engadget article with some carrier details, and a press release source link after,

No word yet on pricing or availability, but the Galaxy S II LTE will be available exclusively on SK Telecom, while the HD variant will be available on all three Korean carriers -- SK Telecom, LG U+ and KT.

The Android Market just received the "official" recovery bootstraps for both the Droid 3 and the Droid Bionic. Of course, for some time now, the community developed ones have been available, and will still work fine. For those folks that like to wait for "official" software, or if you want to pick these up because they might be more likely to get updated more often, then head over to the below Market links. Enjoy!

HTC has never been king of the hill when it comes to naming their devices, but internal documents are leading us to believe they have a new name for the Vigor. This document that was optained by Droid-life, is saying that the Vigor is in Verizon's systems as the HTC Rezound. They made this connection because both device have the same model numbers. Now before going crazy this could be one of three things; one, HTC likes having unique names, two, Verizon did not want to have it be called the Incredible HD, three, we are getting thrown off by Verizon just for fun. Which ever it might be, I'm looking forward to seeing which name the Vigor is released under.

Samsung seems to be doing very well in the mobile department, with their devices in all the categories for the CTIA 2011 finalist, one device seems to be yet announced. The device that's under the gaming and entertainment enthusiast category has yet to be announced, and leaves us wondering what Samsung has coming for us. For a device to be under this category, it must either be amazingly large screened, powered with an incredible processor, or maybe just be the Samsung Nexus Prime. One way or another, Samsung has something coming our way, and I am excited to see what that is.

Weíre interested to see what Pantech can come up with, all things considered.

Here it is, folks! The first leaked pics of the upcoming Motorola Xoom 2 (MZ617). As you can see the device looks very similar to the original Moto Xoom Ďcept this time with more angled corners (ala Photon 4G). You can expect things to remain largely the same with standard rear and front facing cameras, HDMI ports, micro USB connection (thank, Gawd no proprietary), SIM card slot.
Other than that, details remain scarce. Nary a word on processor (which Iím sure will make or break this device for the hardcore Android user) or any other specs could be found. Keep in mind that blue-tint you see in the back-shot is actually the protective film thatís covering the brushed aluminum underneath. So what do you guys think?

Sources over at This Is My Next have stated this new device may be the Motorola Spyder or the Droid RAZR or possibly the previously rumored Droid HD. Whatever the name it has a first-of-its-kind 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 qHD Super AMOLED display. Also rumored to have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel, 1080p rear-facing camera and HD front-facing camera, as well as Motoís Webtop environment. And is apparently outfitted in Gorilla Glass and Kevlar. What's more, the phone's got a couple of accessories on board, including a laptop dock called the Lapdock 100.

The Droid Bionic has been making all the headlines since being released, so let's take a look at this bad-boy and see if it's worth it. Motorola really did something amazing with this new device. They pushed it back for months because it wasn't "good enough." Now, 6 months later, it was good enough to get released and good enough to win my heart.
The Droid Bionic has been in my hands for weeks now, and here are my thoughts. The device is fairly hefty, but has a premium feel rather than the "wow, this is chunky" feel I get with the Droid 3. The appearance of the device is not very sexy IMO, but that huge screen in the front makes everyone ask about it. The camera in the back is pretty amazing, I used it for the Droid 3 review, and it takes great picture and videos.
The software on the Droid Bionic is not perfect, but it is very smooth. Going through pages, menus, and lists is as smooth as butter thanks to the Dual-Core processor. There are quite a few glitches with some apps, and the camera gets slow when you go to panorama mode.
Here's the breakdown:
- Premium feel
- Fast processor
- Nice screen
- Fast 4G
- Development community backed (Droidforums)
- Not that attractive (HTC, Samsung knows sexy better)
- No hard camera button
- Battery life is not great thanks to LTE (dies in 5 hours with moderate-heavy use)
10/10: Speed and Multitasking
8/10: Camera Quality
8/10: Browsing Experience
8/10: Music Playback
9/10: Overall Rating
this is considered a low speed for this phone.
Would I buy it?
Yes. The phone is amazing! The device's hardware is as near to perfection as modern day technology can allow --aside from the screen technology. Everything about the phone is pretty awesome, and having the speed that Verizon's LTE network allows is like going on a joy ride every time you take your phone out of your pocket.
Yes; if you are in the market for a device that's fast, has a large screen, and don't mind... [Read More]

The Droid Bionic is one awesome device, check out my review coming within the next hour, and Amazon seems to think so too and are giving some great deals to sell you one. Today Amazon slashed the price of this new Droid to a more acceptable $150 with a 2 year contract. Along with that price drop, you get a $50 gift card, and another $15 "Digital Bonus" card.
Need anymore reasons to buy one now? The two cards are only available till September 26th guys, so get it asap.

The original Atrix was a device that left us all in awe; now Motorola is hoping to get the same reaction for their rebirth of the device. The Atrix 2 has yet to be announced by Motorola, but the guys over at The Verge seem to have gotten their hands on one. The device is reported as having a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor with PowerVR SGX 540 GPU and 1GB RAM, same as the one in the DROID BIONIC. There's also 8GB of internal memory along with a microSD card slot.
This device has almost identical layout and hardware as the Bionic. Which one is better is a question I'll leave you to answer.
