All Android Phones In the US Getting Version 2.1 Eventually

Labels: , , ,

The latest rumour states that all of the Android phones that are currently available in the US will be upgraded to version 2.1 in the future. Let's honestly hope this is sooner than later because by the time they roll this out we'll see another version of Android on the way. Some phones won't get goodies like the live wallpaper, but that's okay.


Nokia Hints At Announcing C Series Phones at CeBIT

Labels: , , ,

Nokia had an event near MWC but they announced just about nothing. Now we're hearing that they're going to announce their new C-Series of phones at CeBIT 2010 in the next week - C5 pictured above. Just in case you don't believe me, here's a newsletter hinting at it below.

C you at CeBIT
This year’s CeBIT 2010 event swings open its doors on Tuesday morning in Hannover, Germany. The show runs from 2-6 March, so scribble it in your diary as we’ll be reporting from the frontline. Before Mobile World Congress there was a ton of rumours about potential new devices and even a new Cseries range. The show came and went and although there were some pretty major announcements from Nokia, no new devices. Does that mean R&D have been asleep this past while? Most likely not. Of course, we don’t comment on rumours or leaks, but we are looking forward to C BIT for the next series of Nokia announcements. Right we’re off to pack our rucksacks and lederhosen, C you there.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

It looks like Mozilla is really hard at work on Fennec / Firefox Mobile on Android handsets. Two pictures have popped up today, one above which is Fennec on the Nexus One and below is a picture of it on the Motorola DROID. There's not much left to say here, but I doubt it's stable at this point.

Palm has just released webOS 1.4 for their Pre and Pixi handsets. This is great news because both of those handsets now have Flash 10 support along with the ability to record video. Check out what Gizmodo said below for a bunch of other changes. The update is available if you have a Pre / Pixi on Sprint, O2, and Movistar. If you have the Pre Plus / Pixi Plus on Verizon it's available to you as well.
