Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket And HTC Vivid Launching With AT&T’s 4G LTE Network On November 6th

They’re here. AT&T 4G LTE devices. First to mention, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket offers a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with an 800 x 480-pixel resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p HD video and 16GB of on-board storage — it will be available on November 6th for $249.99. Secondly, the HTC Vivid offers a 4.5-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera and 16GB of storage. It will launch on November 6th for $199.99 with a new two-year AT&T contract. Both phones have 4G LTE data connectivity on AT&T. Cities with AT&T 4G LTE service include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. On the launch date of the smartphones, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Athens and Boston will also receive their networks. Data pricing plans are the same: $15 getting 200MB per month, 2GB going for $25 and 4GB with mobile hotspot connectivity for $45. Very simple. PR after the break.

Panasonic Lumix GX1 Micro Four Thirds Leaked

This is the Panasonic Lumix GX1 with an X-series lens screwed onto it. Besides the fact that it’s a new camera and that there is not much (to anything at all) known about it at the very moment, it must have a touchscreen on the back, which would be used in plenty of ways, unless you use an external EVF. And on top of that, there’s a rumored release date of November 8th. So yes, there’s a lot of cloudy facts surrounding this one. Via: Mu-43

Oh, It’s Only The Motorola DROID 4

 Already, a DROID 4!? A 4-inch screen, 4G LTE radios, 5-row QWERTY keyboard, “RAZR styling”, Android 2.3.5, a non-removable battery, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, front-facing camera, and HDMI-out. Best of all, it purportedly sports the same 1.2GHz dual-core processor the DROID RAZR has now. Now the questions are: when will it launch, and why Gingerbread instead of Ice Cream Sandwich, Motorola?

Battlefield 3 Review (PC Edition)

Ah, ’tis Battlefield 3! What an incredibly anticipated and exciting game! I’m not going to go on and on, ranting about the whiny (yet important) things that publications like Kotaku and PCGamer write about, but I’m going to go over Battlefield 3 in a few paragraphs, giving my opinion on things like Battlelog, the campaign, and the game itself. So check the review out, after the break.

Sony Will Buy Out Sony Ericsson’s Stake In Joint Venture

Remember how Sony Ericsson came to be? No? Well, let’s just get to today’s news. Sony has agreed with Sony Ericsson to buy out their 50% stake, therefore completely gaining control of the company in a joint venture, and allowing Sony o more tightly integrate SE devices into their Sony line of products. Ericsson has agreed to a €1.05 billion in exchange for its 50 percent stake, and if pending regulatory approval allows it, the deal will be done in January of 2012. This effectively means that the Walkman is nearly dead, and that the SE brand will be many times more active. Press release after the break.

The camera captures video in 8-megapixel camera in 720p HD 30fps video, and finally a 1450mAh battery good for 9.5 hours of 3G talk time.
