We strive to cover breaking news to bring up to date information on topics that mean the most to you. Here are a few things that didn't make it to the front page, but still warrant coverage.
It looks like Motorola has been busy pumping out phones latelty. BGR is reporting that the company has three planned devices headed to China. The first device is the Motorola XT810 (or is it the MT810?) clamshell flip device. Not much is known about the device except that it might be headed to China Mobile. The second device, the XT820 (or MT820?) is a slick looking flip phone that is said to be the first 3D capable cell phone. The second phone is also said to be going to China Mobile and to be sporting an Android-based platform. Finally, the XT711 - which has been named the Sholes Tablet refresh) - has been outed and is expected to have 720p HD video full experience, including capture/play back/ output via HDMI to HDTV, 8MP auto focus with Xenon flash, MOTOBLUR, and both WebKit and Flash 10 for superior web browsing.
LG seems to be real busy these days with smartphone rumors popping up everywhere. It looks like some of the rumors are now being confirmed. The LU2300 and SU2300 have just launched in Korea and are pretty much the same device, save the fact that one has a slider keyboard and one does not. They're both featuring Android 1.6, 3.5 inch AMOLED display, 5MP Camera, and 1GHz Snapdragon processor. LG has also announced the LG SU950/KU950 to be launched in June. There are no official specs on this device, but it looks quite slick!
It's a good time to be living in Asia right now, those guys are getting all the hot handsets. You probably remember the Samsung Galaxy S (of course you do!) from CTIA this year, well it looks like its close relative, the Samsung Galaxy A (living the A life?) will be making its way to SK Telecom very soon. The Galaxy A will be sporting Android Eclair (2.1), a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 720MHz processor (underclocked?), 5MP camera with HD video recording, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Galaxy A is Korea's first Samsung branded phone, and not a bad choice for a first if you ask me.
