You see that? It’s a screenshot from a 32GB 3G + WiFi model of HTC’s 7-inch Flyer that’s suddenly updated to Honeycomb 3.2 without so much as a note from its mother. A tipster to the French site HTC Hub has revealed that the update (version 3.55.405.1) weighs in at 210MB and updated over the air, but so far no-one with a cheaper 16GB WiFi-only edition has been able to replicate the experience. Either the company is staggering the roll out of Google’s tablet-optimized software, or it’s only interested in looking after the high-rollers.

Well folks… looks like we’re finally getting some meat to all the iPhone 5/4S rumors that have been swirling around for months. We got some interesting news from a vigilant tipster today: beginning August 22nd, Telefonica will begin scaling back its current iPhone stock through September 12th. According to the source, this three week program is a move that “will of course prepare us for the launch of a new smart phone.” While the date next month should sound familiar, we’ve heard recently that the launch will actually take place sometime in October. Either way, a [...]
HTC may have stemmed the flood of HD7 activity, but details about the 4.3-inch Windows Phone 7 device keep leaking out. Today, an O2 Germany tipster blew off most of the remaining doors. We’ve got what appears to be a full spec sheet confirming a 1GHz processor, 8GB of storage and 5 megapixel camera but also detailing internal memory, a full compliment of sensors, quad-band radio frequencies, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and more. There’s also few pictures sizing up the HD7 alongside a Galaxy S, a training slide for the hopefully-more-than-a-marketing-buzzword “Dolby Mobile Sound,” [...]
Is this the first picture of the BlackBerry Storm 3? BerryReview thinks so, after a tipster sent it to their mailbox. And I’m inclined to agree—although I wasn’t expecting that trackpad.
If we recall, the Storm 2 and the original Storm both leaned heavy on BB touchscreen-tech SurePress. This Storm 3, though, possibly conceding a point, puts trackpad navigation back in place.
Other details are limited: we can expect a 3.7-inch display, 8GB of internal memory, and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity. As for processor and other specs, we’ll just have to wait and see.
A tipster sends these photos of the WP7-running Samsung GT-i8700. There’s not a whole lot to glean besides the fact that it has 8GB of storage and looks like something I want to play with right now. Here’s the back:
A camera with an LED flash, too! You might also notice that the i8700 drops the chrome trim our Samsung developer unit was sporting when we gave WP7 a spin in July. Much sleeker, this one is—hopefully we’ll be seeing more of it soon.
