While manufacturers fall further behind on updating devices, development teams like Cyanogenmod and AOKP strive to keep these devices up to date. Paying hundreds of dollars for a device only for it to be dropped a few months later is a real bummer; thankfully custom ROMs breathe new life into older devices as they continue to receive the latest and greatest operating systems. As of last night, AOKP has started to release Jelly Bean builds to the older Galaxy S line as well as newer builds for the current nexus devices. [Read more...]
Although rumors have been circling the web about the Samsung Vibrant 4G, we have yet to see any solid proof that device is in the making, or even exists. This new image may be the first sign of is to come, thanks to a source from BGR. A little inside information on the unit would include a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 21Mbps HSPA+ for TMO’s 4G Network, front facing camera and best of all… Android 2.3! Their source claims that the device is “smooth and stupid fast.”
Some people are questioning the legitimacy of this photo considering it could very much be a standard Samsung Vibrant with a Gingerbread theme installed. I suppose only time will tell as the weeks progress, but let us know what you think!
As of yesterday, those over in Canada have access to a couple sweet new updates for their Android devices. The Samsung Vibrant on Bell, SaskTel and Virgin Mobile is now Froyo ready, along with the Samsung Fascinate on Telus. Users will need the Kies Software to update their devices to 2.2, which is no big deal- just not as convenient as an OTA update. But we’re glad to see that at least someone is getting these updates. Maybe those of us in the states might get lucky before the years end.
Just in time for the Holiday season, we here at DroidNerds.com have some sweet new cases kickin around the site. These cases are in a nice range of sizes and designs. They are all made of real leather and look sharp. In person the colors are vibrate. They hold up real nice to the beating and look like silk screening!
You can check out all of the different designs right here and as always shipping is just $5.95 on most orders. These will make great gifts for even the hardest person to shop for. Impressive? I would say so, nice.
Samsung Mobile Canada announced on their Facebook page that Galaxy S devices will be getting an update to Froyo (Android 2.2) soon. The Captivate on Rogers and the Vibrant on Bell are looking at December for their update while early 2011 is when the Fascinate on TELUS is expected. Good news for all Galaxy S users world wide as they are defiantly working on upgrading the models. I would expect the American versions to have a similar time frame although nothing has been announced just yet.
