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.

Microsoft FLIGHT Simulator Is Back! This Time, As Flight 2010.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 10 was some of the most fun I’ve ever had playing games. Come on, what would be more fun than using a simulator that major airline pilots I knew trained with? It was like the real deal, even if it wasn’t real (but the physics of course would blow your socks off).

After the whole economic crisis of 2008 and onwards, Microsoft fired the entire team that made the series, thus ending it. Millions of fans where — let’s say bummed. Well, now Microsoft wants to make Microsoft Flight 2010, with a release date of sometimes this year.
