When we reviewed the Nexus S 4G, we said we wish the phone would be available through additional channels (at the time, it was an unlocked phone that had T-Mobile service sold through Best Buy). Now, our wish has been granted: Today, Sprint and Google announced plans to bring the Nexus S 4G from Google to Sprint this spring. The phone will still be manufactured by Samsung and will feature Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Other specs include a 1GHz Samsung application processor, a Super AMOLED touchscreen, 4-inch Contour Display, a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and camcorder and front-facing VGA camera....

Samsung, like Sony Ericsson and Nokia, had a press event today in Barcelona to kick off the opening of Mobile World Congress. And like SE, Samsung had a few surprises in store for those who came. The first was the next version of the highly successful Galaxy S. That smartphone has sold over 10 million units worldwide, and Samsung (along with Google) is very proud of that fact. Rather than drastically changing the formula, Samsung's making the next version pretty familiar. In fact, it's simply called the Galaxy S II. Rather than renaming a popular device, the company is just throwing a II on the... Read more...
The world’s first PlayStation certified smartphone is a reality. Sony Ercisson officially revealed today in Barcelona a phone that the world has known about for months: the Xperia Play. It's odd that SE isn't just calling this the PlayStation Phone (or the PSP Phone), because that's pretty much exactly what it is. This device is what happens when an Xperia Arc gets smashed into a PSP, and the Xperia Play is said to combine PlayStation-quality gaming with the latest in Android technology. It's obviously designed with gamers in mind, and to take away a share of the gaming market from Apple,... Read more...

Information about the Nexus S, an Android 2.3 Gingerbread-running Google phone from Samsung, has leaked. As the presumed sequel to the Nexus One (made by HTC), the Nexus S is said to have ties to T-Mobile, thanks to its AWS 3G radio. The smartphone is also reported to have a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a Hummingbird processor, 802.11 b/g/n, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth, and dual-band 850/1900 GSM frequencies. Engadget has reported that there are actually two very similar Nexus S candidates that passed the FCC: the GT-i9020, and the GT-i9020T. It's likely one of these models is destined... Read more...
Earlier this year, we reviewed Google's Android 2.2, code name "Froyo." We felt that it was the best Android build by far, and it was a version that could definitely compete with the other great mobile operating systems out there. Since then, avid Google users have been wondering what Android 2.3 would bring to the table, and when it would come out. That intrigue has been intensified with the huge increase in tablet demand this year; Google has been quoted as saying that Android 2.2 isn't cut out for tablets, but now that tablets are impossible to ignore, there's a chance that Android 2.3 will...
