Listen up folks. The Sprint Hero has a new update from Sprint; no, it doesn’t add Android 2.0, although HTC says the Sense UI is getting ready for it; it’s a bug-cleansing fix. Coming at around 3748377 bytes, firmware 1.56.651.2 fixes SMS issues that drained the battery and so forth. I haven’t noticed any changes in our Sprint Hero, but let’s leave that for the comments. But, have you noticed anything new?
Networking giant Cisco is saying that the next Flip camera will have built-in Wi-Fi and the screen will slide out to reveal the controls. Just to make things clear, this doesn’t mean there will be a touchscreen. In fact there won’t be any. But this still looks interesting.

There’s always been talk of a “Google Phone”. An actual phone from Google, running Android; showcasing Google’s dream of what an Android phone should be. Today TechCrunch has given some signs that the Google phone is being developed with either Samsung or LG building it, but because Samsung builds parts for the iPhone, LG might be the real contender here. My theory is that the Google phone has been in development, and it might be coming around the time that the Chrome OS comes out next year. That way Google could make a full blast on the market, and as a sign of power from Google.
The only thing for sure is that the Google phone is coming, why wouldn’t it? Google has Android and tons of OEMs probably willing to build it for them, so let’s wait and see.
It is really good looking for a water-proof (and shock resistant) camera, and comes in either red or black. And it’s well-specced also: 12.1 megapixels, intelligent autofocus, dedicated movie mode with 848 x 480 resolution, 35.7MB built-in memory, microSD / microSDHC expansion slot, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.5-inch rear LCD with 960 x 240 resolution. Oh yeah, and it’s 0.78 inches thick. It might be one of the coolest cameras of all time. Press release after the jump.

Yes, that’s what we should be expecting. What actually is going is happen is an overview of the Chrome OS. What does that mean? Well, it means this, I guess:
The plan is to give some technical background information as well as show off some demos, we’re told. More notably, they will be giving a “complete overview” of the new OS, which they say will launch next year.
Essentially, they’re going to tell us what the heck Chrome OS is, and then we’ll get a release date probably on the same day.[TechCrunch]

Now this is weird. While there are problems with the Droid’s speaker, its camera had “red corner” autofocus issues, as of now, that problem has gone away without any visible updates being made to the Droid. Meaning that Moto probably snuck out a secret update overnight, and fixed everybody’s camera. Strange isn’t it?
