New Rumor: Samsung To Launch Coveted Nexus Two On November 8th?

I don’t know how plausible the rumors swirling around the webs are, but as I know it, Samsung is launching a new Android device on the 8th of November and has begun inviting members of the press, me included, and I can report that I’ll be there for the launch. Originally I planned to be there for CES Preview a day later, but hey, the plans changed.

Now back to the “rumor”, the possibility of a Nexus Two is heavily disputed, as Google CEO Eric Schmidt dissed the idea after the web sales-only Nexus One, which ultimately succeeded in showing the new face of Android to the world, but failed in sales. At the moment there are conflicting reports that the Samsung Continuum would be launched on the 8th, although inviting all the major press to a critical event for something very mid-range like the Continuum may not be what Samsung has in mind; for one thing, all their recent product launches for Android have been big, and only big, although that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room left for one last, smaller event.

As for the idea that Google would only reside to HTC for the building of a new Nexus Two, that can be debunked due to the fact that insider info points to Sony Ericsson earlier this year for being put in charge of building the original N1, but then refused.

Even though we don’t know the entirety of what Samsung has in mind, you can bet that I’ll be at the conference, live-blogging, hands-on reporting, and blasting away on all our gadgets to bring you everything from the event in NYC.

White iPhone 4 Delayed Till Spring 2011

Darn. It.

The white iPhone 4 is delayed again. Don’t ask us, the white iPhone 4 has had some manufacturing issues regarding the whiteness of the plastic around the frame, making sure that none of the materials are visible at all. While the issue was thought to be resolved this summer, Apple has said otherwise:

We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone yet again, but we’ve decided to delay its release until this Spring

Bollocks. And by that point, either a Verizon iPhone would be released, or the iPhone 5 would be announced in the usual June/July time frames. Via: BG @ BGR
