Another day, another tablet. It was a few months ago that Hannspree teased us with an unnamed 10.1-inch multitouch Froyo tablet, and now the device has hit the FCC and has a name. The 1.6-pound HSG1164 will offer a 1GHz Tegra 2 chip, 16GB of internal storage, and 512MB of NAND Flash.

Other specs include a microSD slot, Android 2.2, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, mini USB / HDMI connector, a built in light sensor, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a Li-ion battery of unknown size. There’s no ship date mentioned, but we’re guessing it will have an early 2011 release.

Posted in T-Mobile by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2010

Yesterday there was news that T-Mobile had announced that they would be pushing out an OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy S to Android 2.2 Froyo. Samsung said that if they had problems with the OTA update that it would be available today from Samsung’s KIES software as well.

Sadly, T-Mobile has just announced that the Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S will be delayed for another week. You would think that they would be ready for the update when they announced it, but that’s not the case.

DROID 2 running Android 2.2

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2010

While we wait for Verizon to officially confirm the Motorola Droid 2, we have more news. It is expected to arrive in August, we know that. And what version of Android is it running? MotoBlur? So many questions. Here’s the lowdown from someone who managed some hands on time.

The Droid 2 will be running Android 2.2 FroYo, and the screenshot above confirms it. Looks like it is more responsive than the original Droid as well. Maybe because of the 1GHz processor, Android 2.2, or both. And yes, the Droid 2 has the same MotoBlur skin as the Droid X, with the same notification bar. The source was very happy with it all in all.
