    [Rumor] Motorola Droid RAZR M and Droid RAZR HD Press Shots are Leaked

    Why do people want edge-to-edge glass on a phone? I'm not surprised one hasn't been announced yet, because from an ergonomics and usability perspective it's pretty much a bad idea. I would love to see edge-to-edge no-bezel displays in the desktop market, which would be great for multi-monitor...

    Phone and Tablet List Known to be Getting Updates to Jelly Bean

    Pretty awesome that Samsung intends to update not only the S3, but the S2 to JB. They seem to do a good job eventually putting out updates, even if it takes forever. I'm honestly surprised Motorola is updating the RAZR series to JB- they're notorious for abandoning phones. Sony also does a...

    New US Congressional Bill Introduced Called the SHIELD Act Aims to Stop Patent Trolls

    This seems like a reasonable solution to this issue. Patent trolls like Rambus who don't even manufacture or design new products will be more hesitant to sue companies who are actually in the business. I'm not sure exactly how much it would put a stop to the Apple vs. Android lawsuits, simply...

    New Atom Based Chips Confirmed to Work with Jelly Bean According to Intel

    That's not even a Gingerbread notification bar, that's the pre-Gingerbread notification bar... on an article about Jelly Bean!

    [Rumor] Samsung Nearly Ready to Upgrade the Galaxy S III to Jelly Bean & SGS2 Testing

    I imagine after my two years are up here on Verizon that I will be switching to a GSM carrier and will just buy whatever Nexus device is available from the Play Store, assuming the trend continues. Regardless, with early CyanogenMod 9 already working on the Verizon Galaxy S3, and even earlier...

    Super-Powered Mystery Verizon HTC Device Benchmarked; 1080p Display & More

    I'm curious, how do we know this is a phone and not a tablet? A 1080p RGB matrix LCD on anything that is phone-sized seems like it's getting to the point where we'd be wasting CPU/GPU cycles pushing such a huge number of pixels.

    HTC Says Rezound Official ICS Update Available Today

    So, wait, is this available for download anywhere or do we have to wait for an OTA? I have a friend with a Rezound who has been waiting for ICS.

    CyanogenMod 9 Supports the Samsung Galaxy S III Before It Even Launches in the U.S.

    I really, really hope the Verizon version will get official support!

    Samsung's S Voice Takes On Apple's Siri in a Duel to the Death!

    I believe there is too- or at least the injunction to delay SGS3 sales in the US was based in part on S Voice being similar to Siri. I have no idea what you're talking about. Obviously Android's voice controls are a ripoff of Siri. As you all know, Apple invented voice controls. And...

    Developer Project Called Linaro Tweaks Android Code; Can Double Performance on G-Nex

    I love that CyanogenMod 9 (and probably other ROMs) are integrating the Linaro tweaks, so that we can see performance gains directly on devices getting nightly builds. Even better, it's great that the AOSP is accepting some of these patches. Now, question time: much of the benefit from "Linaro...

    Samsung to Take On Facebook With its Own Social Platform

    Why would anyone dump money into another social media platform attempt? I mean, Google arguably had the best chance, and while Google+ is doing okay, it obviously hasn't overtaken Facebook and Twitter. It just seems like a waste of time, money, and resources on Samsung's part. They should be...

    U.S. Judge Denies Apple's Request for a Preliminary Injunction Against Samsung's SIII

    Glad to see the Galaxy S3's U.S. launch should not be impeded by any more of these frivilous lawsuits. Looking forward to getting mine in the next couple of weeks.

    Test Build of Ice Cream Sandwich Sneaks Out for the Droid Bionic; Maybe Coming Soon?

    Glad to know Bionic users are still getting some ICS goodness. I'm still stuck on my Droid 2 Global until my Samsung Galaxy S3 ships from Verizon. However, the awesome community developers who do work on the Droid 2 Global have made my phone usable by giving us CyanogenMod 9, AOKP, MIUI, and...

    Kickstarter Funding for Chameleon Homescreen Canceled Due to Mixup; New Project Soon

    Honestly, I had not heard about this until this news of it being cancelled. It looks neat though, maybe now that I know I can help fund it this time around, after I do some more research.

    Droid RAZR Maxx KO's Apple's iPhone on Verizon

    I didn't dislike my iPhone 3G back in the day, but if you put an iPhone 4S up against the RAZR MAXX there's no contest for me. You just can't beat the battery life on the RAZR MAXX.

    Samsung Galaxy S III Requires New Proprietary MHL-HDMI Adapter

    Not a big deal to me, or likely most customers, as I would imagine only a small proportion of users actually utilize HDMI output. However, it's a nice feature to have, so buying a proprietary (and probably expensive) adapter will suck.

    Qualcomm's New Snapdragon S4 Stays Cool Under Pressure... Literally.

    You mean my Samsung Galaxy S3 with a Snapdragon S4 won't be able to melt my popcorn butter as quickly as Competitor A's and Competitor B's phone? Get your marketing together, Qualcomm, don't make me regret my purchase.

    Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S3 To Have Global Capabilities in the Future

    I wonder if there is just going to be a single SKU for US/Canada/Japan that has dual radios, CDMA/GSM- then carriers like Verizon will baseband lock (as usual) to prevent a Verizon SGS3 from being used on AT&T/T-Mobile, etc. I would be okay with this- because then I feel like it'd basically...

    Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III Photographed in the Wild

    Is it just me or does the Verizon version look thicker than the international model? I hope so! That means bigger battery!

    Samsung Shares List of Their US Carrier Devices Scheduled to Get Ice Cream Sandwich

    I still have no idea why they wouldn't upgrade the Droid Charge to ICS. From what I understand, Charge owners are pissed at Samsung because of this.
