T-Mobile G2 HSPA+ Android phone photographed (aka HTC Vision?)

So the HTC Vision (known to T-Mobile as the G2, successor to the first ever Android phone, the G1) was recently seen in one of the best photo-shoots of a leaked device this entire month. Mr. BlurryCam didn’t dare try a shot at this one!

In the meantime, there’s an awesoome-looking QWERTY, dedicated camera button, screen size of 3.7 to 4.0 inches, and a lot of awesome 1GHz power with HSPA+ “4G speeds” provided by T-Mobile.

Maybe I’d get one….

DROID Pro is actually the DROID 2 GSM edition, LG enV Touch2 will run Android 2.1??

According to a very close source to Engadget, the DROID Pro is in fact the DROID 2, customized to have support for GSM SIM cards, and perhaps dual CDMA/GSM radios. The naming DROID Pro may not be final due to the fact that Verizon loves switching up names at the last minute (something I can actually confirm), so let’s let that rest.

On the flipside, the LG enV Touch 2 will be much like the enV Touch, but being bulky and having two screens, as well as Android 2.1.

So now here’s the 60k question: would you be disappointed if the DROID 2 were simply a SIM’d DROID 2, and not a Droid “pro”?

Nikon’s D3100 Is Official: 14 megapixels, 1080p video, $700

The Nikon D3100 that we’ve all been waiting for is official, with at least two disappointments (seen below). There’s the specs though,which I definitely think are awesome:

  • 14.2 megapixel sensor
  • 1080p/24 video or 720p/VGA/24/30 (H.264/AVCHD)
  • 3″ LCD (230k dots/320×240 pixels resolution) (that stinks!)
  • 11-point autofocus (yay!)
  • Continuous autofocus in video mode (contrast-based)
  • 3FPS burst rate (a shame)
  • In-camera editing of video (clipping, basically)
  • ISO 100-3200 (expandable to 12800)

Otherwise, the D3100 is going to be released in mid-September, for $699.95 including a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens. It can also recognize 35 faces in one shot, which I’m quite sure no one can have a use for, but you will with the 12800 ISO range option in the camera’s settings. PR after the read more link.

The Dell Streak Goes Downtown — In A Teardown

So the Dell Streak has gone to meet its demise. Its transformation to the dark side of technology. To a site called iFixit, where they do anything but “fix” things on a daily basis.

Cut the drama short, and the Dell Streak was dismantled to every last bit. The team at iFixit declared that the Streak truly has a 1GHz Snapdragon, a 5 megapixel camera that “closely resembles” the iPhone 4’s, Gorilla Glass, and a 2 GB non-user accessible micro-SD card. On a sort of interesting scale of 1 to 10, 8 is the rating given to the Streak. This meaning that on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the easiest), the Streak is an 8 to dismantle for a ‘regular’ user.

Check out the carnage at the source link, and don’t forget to check out our unboxing of the Streak, and wait for the review!

T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant chopped in half on T-Mobile

Not that type of “chopped in half”! More specifically speaking, T-Mobile has cut the price of their Galaxy S phone, the Samsung Vibrant, to $99 on a 2-year agreement for one line, online only. Inside of the Vibrant you get the 1Ghz Hummingbird processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED display that is nearly unmatched, 5 megapixel camera with 720p recording, and Android 2.1 with Touchwiz 3.0. Don’t forget that every Vibrant also comes will a full copy of Avatar.

I think it’s worth every cent.

Microsoft’s Arc Touch mouse revealed by German retailer? Here, take a look:

The Arc Touch? It’s totally awesome man. Like gnarly dude! Just look at it! The mouse can “arch” itself to be like a gaming mouse, then folds itself dead-flat for easy travel!! The features are touch-scrolling, a battery indicator, the ability to track on most any surface, and a 2.4GHz nano transceiver that no doubt plugs into your laptop’s USB port. For €69.99 ($69.95 rumored) and a ship date of 5-10 days, according to notebooksbilliger in Germany, this’ll get pretty official, pretty quick.

T-Mobile G2 teaser page goes live, brings plenty of HSPA+

T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ phone, the G2, was just given its own teaser page on T-Mobile site, which actually isn’t quite new. As the site mentions:

The T-Mobile G2 will deliver tight integration with Google services and break new ground as the first smartphone designed to run at 4G speeds on our new HSPA+ network. In the coming weeks, we’ll share more details about the G2 and offer exclusive first access to current T-Mobile customers.

So, anyone excited for a successor to the T-Mobile G1, built by HTC? In the G2’s case, it is believed that it’s also built by HTC, runs Android, and has HSPA+support.
