Labels: , , , , , , ,

After months of delays Rogers has officially announced that they'll be launching the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate on October 25th. Apparently, the delay was because of a shortage of Super AMOLED displays and "limited inventory." Either way, it's good to see that the wait will really will over in four days. Rogers has delayed this smartphone countless times at this point, but hopefully the 25th will really be the day. It'll be available for $149.99 on a 2-year contract and $549.99 contract-free.

Labels: , , , , , ,

Coming from Droid Sans could be a couple of pretty important leaked pictures. All of them are about Acer's upcoming devices and they're all going to be running on the Android OS. The first picture above appears to be a picture of Acer's Froyo based Liquid Metal smartphone but no specs are unknown. The picture directly below is said to be a tablet from Acer with a 9 or 10-inch display. The most interesting part is the couple of pictures below the tablet which is another smartphone [from Acer] running Android. This one appears to have a large and thin display (resolution unknown), a front-facing camera, four low touch-sensitive buttons, and a Dolby Sound mark on the back. Interesting indeed.
