Rumors have it that the first Ice Cream Sandwich devices should the market around early October.

Rumors have it that the first Ice Cream Sandwich (Google’s Androids 4.0) devices should the market around early October.

The rumors said that Google is trying to push its devices so it could compete with Apples iPhone5 which is suppose to be release in late September or early October.

BGR also stated, that Google, the Mountain View-based company doesn’t want potential customers coming out of contracts (especially original DROID owners) and “drooling over the iPhone 5.”

I really don’t think that Google will rush things like this. Even to try to take the shine off of Apples. Let them have at lease a 5 minute of fame so we can burst there bubble later with the best OS.

LG announced the world first and fastest dual-cord Smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X with Tegra 2 processor.

LG announced the world first and fastest dual-cord Smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X with Tegra 2 processor.  The LG Optimus 2X was said to be available to Korea next month and also to other countries too. They haven’t said anything about any carrier in the U.S but rumors had suggested it “might” be available for Verizon and/or T-Mobile. That we don’t know that yet!

The new Smartphone well come with Android 2.2 (Froyo), but can be upgraded to the new Gingerbread 2.3. As for the source code, Google is releasing the full Gingerbread source code after the Nexus S launch and it will take LG several weeks to upgrade their new phone.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company was excited about the announcement and said, “Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology so this is no small achievement to be the first to offer a Smartphone utilizing this technology. With unique features such as HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) mirroring and exceptional graphics performance, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end Smartphones in 2011.”

Rumors of Androids growth slowing dropping, has been laid to rest!

There are rumors around the web that Android’s growth was slowing dropping and apparently Andy Rubin decided that it was time to put that myth to rest.

He has tweeted earlier today that “there are over 300,000 Android phones activated each day.” This surpasses the last iOS activated stats of 270,000+ a day, which include all of the iOS devices.

Sean Riley from had said on there site, “Now at some point the growth curve is going to have to slow down simply because Android will reach a saturation point, but it doesn’t look like we’ve gotten there quite yet and with all the dual-core hardware coming down the pipeline I wouldn’t put money on it happening too soon.”

I totally agree with this, with all the new Smartphones that are coming out with Android OS and now with the release of the android 2.3 Gingerbread. It wouldn’t surprise me that we will see those numbers in the 500k’s or even more.

MetroPCS to launch 4G LTE Android handset in Q1 2011

Imagine unlimited talk, text, and 4G data for only $55 per month. That is the no-contract plan that MetroPCS is offering right now on their first LTE handset, the non-Android Samsung Craft.

We don’t talk about our nation’s fifth largest carrier that much, but MetroPCS is expanding their 4G LTE network to a city near you and they plan to have an Android phone for it in Q1 2011, possibly as early as February.

Their 4G coverage, as last month, is limited currently to the Las Vegas, Dallas-Ft Worth, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia metro areas. That 4G coverage is expected to expand to Sacramento, Central Florida, Boston, North Florida, South Florida, San Francisco, Atlanta, and New York City by the end of 2010 to the early 2011. Full 4G LTE roll-out in all the MetroPCS service areas is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.

To put that in perspective, MetroPCS should cover roughly 110 million people with their 4G LTE network this year, about the same size as Verizon and their newly launched 4G network.

MetroPCS did not announce who would produce their first Android LTE phone, but they did say it would support VoLTE (voice over LTE) technology so they can migrate customers from its CDMA network to its LTE network.

Samsung produced the first LTE handset for MetroPCS so chances are high we could see them also release an Android model. Rumors have suggested we could see a Galaxy S type device with LTE support sometime early next year, so we will continue to dig for more details.

For more info on MetroPCS, hit up their official web site and check out their plans.

Football and Android collide!

Coming soon, Football and Android collide! Football fan can soon play Madden NFL 11 on the Motorola Droid X. Yeah, you heard right.  Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to purchase the game because it looks like it will be an exclusive for the Droid X and be included in the next software update from Verizon.

EA Mobile has ported some of their other big franchises like Need for Speed to Android, but they have followed the Gameloft strategy and avoided the official Android Market in order to sign exclusive deals with the carriers and handset makers.

Will we see more games of EA Mobile? Hopefully, I can probably speak for every one that we want to see more games for Androids from them.  A quick visit to EA Mobile’s site still list the G1 as the only supported Android phone, so clearly they have their work cut out for them.
