RIM’s first BlackBerry 10 phone said to launch in October

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Research In Motion may be planning to unveil its debut next-generation smartphone this summer, with a launch to follow in in the fall. N4BB on Wednesday reported that RIM currently intends to take the wraps off its first BlackBerry 10-powered smartphone by mid-August, and it plans to launch the handset in early or mid-October. BGR exclusively published RIM’s 2012 product roadmap this past January, and at that time we said the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, code-named “BlackBerry London,” was scheduled to launch in late September or early October. N4BB also claims a QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry 10 device is expected to launch in the first quarter next year, again in line with a report from this past January, though the site claims the device might not feature a slider form factor. RIM is not likely to discuss specifics with regards to BlackBerry 10 devices or launch timing during the BlackBerry World conference next week, but the smartphone maker may share new details surrounding its platform and BGR will be on hand to report all the news as it breaks.

Galaxy S III decoy phone pictured once again as announcement nears

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

It appears that Samsung’s purported efforts to mask the launch version of its upcoming next-generation Galaxy smartphone have once again paid off. A new image of the Galaxy S III has emerged on a Chinese forum, though the look (and name) of the device will likely be different when the new flagship phone is finally unveiled next week. Few new details can be gleaned from this new leak, though it appears that Samsung may have taken some liberties with the stock on-screen navigation buttons in Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy phone is expected to feature a quad-core 1.5GHz Exynos processor, a high-definition Super AMOLED display, 4G LTE, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a ceramic case available in either blue or white. Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S III next week at a press conference in London.

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD for AT&T gets the FCC nod

Thursday, March 8th, 2012
To its credit, AT&T’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE — known as the Skyrocket HD — has managed to elude its fair share of Mr. Blurrycams and other leaks for a full two months since it was originally announced at the carrier’s Developer Summit. Now the device, listed as the SGH-I757, has stepped one foot closer to the daylight, thanks to the FCC looking it up and down and nodding in approval. We still don’t have a date or price, but at least we have a solid indication that Ma Bell hasn’t simply forgotten about the smartphone or tossed it to the wayside. Sadly, we couldn’t eke many new details out of the massive stack of paperwork — just the usuals, like LTE 700 / 1700 support with WCDMA 850 / 1900 radios — but we found one interesting bit. The model supports two battery covers: one with an NFC antenna, and one without. Knowing AT&T’s reluctance to flip the NFC switch on other devices, we won’t be surprised if the latter option is included with the final production units — or will it just be built into the battery like its predecessors? As always, time will tell.

Tomorrow’s Apple event to focus on digital textbook publishing tools, says Bloomberg

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012
We’ve already seen some rumors about what Apple has in store for its education-minded announcement in New York City tomorrow, and now Bloomberg is out with a report of its own that backs up some of those earlier rumblings and offers a few new details. Citing two people with knowledge of the announcement, it says that the main focus of the event will be a set of tools that will “make it easier to publish interactive textbooks and other digital educational content.” That not only includes tools for the big textbook publishers, but self-publishers as well — Bloomberg gives the example of teachers preparing materials for that week’s lesson, or scientists and historians who could publish professional-looking content without a publishing deal. According to Bloomberg’s sources, Apple is expected to use a modified version of the ePub standard for the content, and that it’s main focus is on the K-12 market.

In case you needed a reminder, we’ll be there live to report on the announcement as it happens — the event gets underway tomorrow at 10AM Eastern.

Motorola LTE handset emerges with qHD Super AMOLED display, questionable identity

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

Well, what do we have here? According to “trusted sources” over at This Is My Next it’s a Motorola Spyder, or a Droid RAZR, or maybe even the Droid HD we peeped back in August. Whatever the name, the phone is apparently packing a first-of-its-kind 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 qHD super AMOLED display. The rumored LTE handset also supposedly contains a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel, 1080p rear-facing camera and HD front-facing camera, and is apparently outfitted in Gorilla Glass and Kevlar. TIMN is also boasting exclusive new details for the recently outed Atrix 2. It seems the name is confirmed as well as a handful of previously identified specs. What’s more, the phone’s got a couple of accessories on board, including a laptop dock called the Lapdock 100, also rumored to play nice with the Spyder, or RAZR, or HD. More images of both devices await you at the source links below.
