Nokia N8 Clone From China Runs Android 2.1
While it might be really cool if Nokia’s N8 phone were to be powered by Google’s Android instead of Symbian^3, but obviously Nokia isn’t going to offer such a phone anytime soon. That being said, a Nokia N8 clone has surfaced that seems to do just that. We’ve previously seen N8 clones before, but how many of them are running Android 2.1? This device, dubbed the iZinn CJ-3 is from […]

Android 2.1 Ported To The HTC Touch Diamond2
It used to be that folks would be busy trying to get Linux running on various electronic devices, such as an iPod, but the latest trend is to get Google’s Android OS running on phones that don’t officially support it. We’ve seen Android ported to the iPhone before, and now we’ve got confirmation that Android 2.1 has also been ported to the HTC Touch Diamond2. Sure, the device might be […]

Phecda P7 Android tablet runs on Android 2.1
The Phecda P7 is another Android-powered tablet from China, where it will run on the Android 2.1 operating system with the added promise of an update to Android 2.2 FroYo when October rolls around. The P7 is no slouch when it comes to specifications, although we would have liked to see a faster processor instead of the 650MHz ARM11-based Telechips TCC8901 chip. Features include a multi-touch capable 7″ WVGA display, […]

Motorola CLIQ Android 2.1 upgrade delayed
While the newer generation of Android-powered smartphones run on version 2.1 of the operating system and are waiting for FroYo to arrive, the Motorola CLIQ is still left lagging far behind as it belongs to the museum with version 1.5 of the Android OS running. Unfortunately for owners of the Cliq, the Android 2.1 has been delayed yet again after missing its spring dateline, and with an apology there was […]


Droid X Virtual Keyboard Ported For Android 2.1 Devices
The multi-touch virtual keyboard on the Motorola Droid X has been warmly received by many folks, probably due to the fact that multi-touch enables folks to hit more than one key at a time, such as the shift key. The good news is, the virtual keyboard has been ported to other devices, and it should work on any Android phone that’s running on Android 2.1 Éclair, though folks who tried […]

With the promo packages for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S starting to arrive, we’re fairly sure that the phone should be hiding just around the corner. Now rumor is going around that the Samsung Galaxy S is slated to be launched on T-Mobile on July 21st, which is about six weeks away. This is far from an official confirmation, but we do hope that it’s accurate, as we’re looking forward […]

Specifications of this device are pretty standard nowadays, so it’ll […]

Viliv X10 10-inch Android Tablet Sports A Nice Display
It’s hard to differentiate between tablet devices nowadays, since they all more or less sport similar specifications. That being said, Viliv does seem to be making an effort to look slightly different with its X10, thanks to the use of a 10-inch capacitive display that offers a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution instead of the more common 1024 x 600. Pricing or release information for the X10 weren’t mentioned, but […]

Samsung i5500 could be first Corby with Android 2.1
It seems that the Samsung i5500 could very well be the first Corby handset from the South Korean manufacturer that runs on the Android 2.1 operating system. Basically, we’ve more or less lost track of the number of Corby handsets that there are out there, but so far none of them sport the Android platform. The Samsung GT-i5500 which was recently approved by the Wi-Fi alliance, will reportedly come with […]

The new firmware update will also see HTC’s Sense UI included, the same UI offered on the MyTouch 3G Slide.
