Samsung's DROID Charge Will Be Available On Verizon On April 28 For $299

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Verizon has finally announced that the Samsung DROID Charge will be available soon. The official release date is now pegged for April 28th if you're willing to give up $299.99 on a 2-year contract for it. The expensive price tag isn't exactly justified because of what you get: a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, the Android OS, an 8MP AF camera with an LED flash, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 1GHz CPU, and 4G (LTE) connectivity. If it was a dual-core CPU then I'd understand but it's just a basic single-core 1GHz CPU so the Thunderbolt might be the one to get. Anyways, the choice is yours.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Hits North America April 26th For $399

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

After all the rumours, the official price date has just been announced. Asus will be bringing its Eee Pad Transformer to North America on April 26th for just $399, which is a great price for what you get. The tablet itself features a 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU, 16GB of internal storage, dual cameras, and Android "Honeycomb". There'll also be a $499 model which will have 32GB inside.

Of course, if you want to turn it into a "real" Transformer, then you can opt to get an optional keyboard dock for it which will cost an extra $150. This is definitely a great netbook replacement and I'm actually thinking about picking one of these up.


Sony Ericsson W8 Gets Announced, A Mid-End Android Walkman

Labels: , , , ,

Sony Ericsson has finally announced their long-rumoured Walkman Android phone, the W8. This one looks pretty similar to the XPERIA X8, but it's got a nice colour scheme to it, this one's black and red. The W8 features mid-end specs like: a 3-inch touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 resolution, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3.2MP camera, a 600MHz CPU, and Android 2.1 with a custom UI.

Kind of sad that the company couldn't use "Gingerbread" or even version 2.2 of the OS but I guess we'll have to live with it. Price and release dates are still unknown for this one.
