Our friends over at AndroidNZ went through and did a nice review of the Samsung Galaxy S III phone. When doing their reviews they also like to test out controllers, mostly because the crew over there happen to play a lot of Android games like we do. Good news is a few controllers work right out of the box.
It looks like the pre-orders for Samsung's newest high-end Android phone, the Galaxy S III, has jumped the borders of the UK and are now available for U.S. residents to pre-order. Both the white and blue models are up on Amazon for pre-order at a cost of $799 and up.
The Wall Street Journal (via Engadget) is reporting on something that is good news for customers and not so good for mobile carriers. Apparently Google is partnering with five different device makers to create new Nexus devices for the 2012 holiday season. These devices will allegedly run Android 5.0 (rumored to be called Jelly Bean), and will be sold in unlocked form straight from Google.
Some rather bitter news today for anyone who was looking forward to getting an HTC One X or an EVO 4G LTE Android phone. Both phones, which we have talked about recently, have had their first shipment held up by US Customs over a patent that they might be infringing upon that Apple owns.
The wait is almost over for HTC Sensation 4G owners on T-Mobile. The carrier has confirmed that Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 3.6 will be pushed to the Sensation 4G starting on May 16. A previous report suggested the update would not arrive until June. It appears as if the HTC Amaze 4G will receive its ICS update around that time instead.
So you may be wondering why we are reviewing a PC HD video recording card. The reason for this is that the Hauppauge Colossus HD card is able to record HD videos of gameplay from your Android device. This is something we found out while trying to find a good solution to record gameplay videos of Android games.
Android gamers who own a Samsung Galaxy SII phone and are using an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM have some good news today thanks to our resident behind-the-scenes tech nut RedDragon. It looks as though all ICS ROMs from Samsung for the Galaxy SII can now use the WiiMote when playing games on your device.
Living in Japan just got a little sweeter. Sony unveiled two of its newest Xperia Android smartphones today that will be coming to the Japanese market in the summer. The Sony Xperia GS (pictured) and XS will ship with Android 4.0 and a slew of other features that are exclusive to Sony Mobile devices.
Kyocera proved today that you don't need a somewhat powerful phone to enjoy Android's latest OS. The company announced two lower-end Android 4.0 smartphones at CTIA called the Hydro and the Rise. Although pricing is not yet known, chances are these phones aren't going to cost much after being subsidized by a carrier. The off-contract prices shouldn't be too bad either.
While the rest of us here in the U.S. have to wait to get our hands on Samsung's latest addition to the Galaxy line of Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy S III, UK residents can now begin pre-ordering it off of Amazon UK. The only difficult question you will be facing is what color you want.
Verizon unsurprisingly revealed the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE today. This phone is one of the newest devices to take advantage of Verizon's LTE network, and will be available in a few weeks time. Verizon didn't give a specific release date or a price for the Incredible 4G LTE. We'd imagine this phone won't be sold for under $199 on a two-year contract.
