LG Eclipse/LU2300 Info Leaked - Can Powerful Specs Make Up For A Creepy Psychedelic UI?

As you may have heard, LG has big plans for a little Android smartphone called Eclipse/LU2300. The company has not really done a whole lot with Android thus far, so it’s good to see them starting to make a serious smartphone that runs Android.

Two things that you will want to know, especially if you are a G1 owner and love the physical keyboard are:

  • this phone includes a Snapdragon processor and
  • it sports a physical keyboard

Yet Another Custom UI

However, what you will want to punch yourself in the nose about is the fact that LG seems to be yet another custom UI of their own on top of Android which looks a whole lot like the Sense UI by HTC, except it uses more fruity, psychedelic, bright colors (I believe the term for their shade of blue is "cupcake blue" or "there-goes-my-manhood-blue").

Android Powered ICD Gemini Tablet Trumps Apple's iPad Specs On All Fronts, Bound To Put Up A Good Fight

Engadget's Vlad Savov just announced a new Android tablet called Gemini by ICD (Innovative Converged Devices), seemingly out of nowhere - Google searches do not bring up anything but Engadget's own post - it looks like they have an exclusive here. I hate using the term "###### killer", so I will not be calling it an iPad killer. However, it is going to give Apple a run for its money.

ICD Gemini Tablet

Gemini has beautiful 11.2" screen, compared to iPad's 9.7" - a whole 1.5" larger diagonally.

Google IO 2010 Attendees Get An Early Gift From Google - A Free Android Phone

As one of Google IO 2010 conference attendees, I've been wondering what Google had up its sleeve for this year's big gift. The price of the conference last year was sweetened with a free Android phone given to everyone attending, and I was hoping this year wouldn't be an exception, secretly hoping for a Nexus One or even better - a pre-release version of a brand new phone.

My wishes came true a few minutes ago when I received an email from Google informing me that all registered conference attendees would be getting a free phone sent to them before the conference even begins.

Tablet Sales In 2010 - And The Winner Is… (Here Is A Hint: iPad VS Android)

We have some interesting numbers today regarding tablet sales in 2010, courtesy of IMS Research - a research company specializing in a variety of topics, such as wireless communications, automotive, consumer, power, and security.

The report suggests that 24% of all tablets sold in 2010 will be running the Android OS. Microsoft will be following way behind at only 10% of the market.

The first place will be undoubtedly occupied by Apple's iPad, which was released 2 days ago and sold an estimated 700,000 units just on day one.

Droid Owners Have A Bittersweet Week

It’s been both a good and bad news week for Droid owners.

The Good News

The coveted Android 2.1 update has finally officially arrived to the device.

Android 2.1 was first available only on the Nexus One, a move that Google took some flack for. They were instrumental in pushing the Droid, and shortly after its release late last year, Google announced their first Google branded Android device, with features that other Android owners wouldn’t see on their phones for quite some time.

Digg Diggs Android!

Social news sites are all the rage nowadays, and is pretty much the one to beat.

A few minutes ago they graced us with an official Android app, hot on the heels of their iPhone app release.

The fact that Digg was working on an app wasn't much of a secret, due in part to the fact that a few beta testers also installed AppAware, which reported users installing something called "".

Samsung To Add A Keyboard To The Galaxy S And Another Syllable To The Name

Samsung Galaxy S Pro. That's a mouthful. It is also a beauty (supposedly...the picture below is just a render).

According to the legendary Eldar Murtazin, the editor of Mobile-Review and a well respected tech journalist, Samsung's going to be tacking on a keyboard to the already lustworthy Galaxy S. Because none of the good things in life are free, the privilege to have actual keys to pound on while you're definitely not texting and driving (really officer, I wasn't) will cost you additional 50 Euros (That's around $67 for those of us in the States).
