I write a great news for all users who want a DROID RZR smartphone. This smartphone will be very soon released by Verizon Wireless in white color and with latest version of Android the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Any hardware modification for the white version of Motorola DROID RAZR. It comes equipped with 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 4.3-inches Super AMOLED display.
The note is that white RAZR will be delivered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The price for Motorola RAZR white is only $299.99 with 2-year contract. DROID RAZR in white will be available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at www.verizonwireless.com this month.
Customers that purchase a DROID RAZR will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan beginning at $39.99 monthly access and a smartphone data package starting at $30 monthly access for 2 GB of data.
Apparently there is a retailer in US, Expansys USA which has the handset in stock, but don’t expect it to be cheap. The unlocked version of the phone will be available for $750 and will work on AT&T and T-Mobile network.
Now,this sounds kind of expensive for a smartphone, but if we think that Christmas is coming, I guess some may consider it the perfect gift and we know that in this time of year people hardly think of the money. However, if you’re not that anxious, you could wait for the Verizon version of the handset which should be available any moment now.
As a reminder, the Galaxy Nexus packs a dual core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, with 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage. With a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen having the resolution 720×1280, comes with a 5MP camera and runs the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Additional features are: Wi-Fi connectivity, microUSB slot or 3.5mm jack.
Informations about the HTC’s first phone carring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are out in the open.
Although the phone will be officially announced at next year’s Mobile World Congress, we have a first look at its features to see what this little guy has to offer. With a metal construction case and just 8mm thick, HTC Ville will have a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz processor and a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display.This doesn’t sound too bad, does it now?
In addition, the smartphone will have an 8MP backside – illuminated camera with 1080p HD video capture, Beats Audio, a 1650 mAh battery and will work on HSPA+ networks. Sources are saying this is the second handset with Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System after Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Apparently, it will also be the first phone to run the upcoming HTC Sense UI 4.0, which Google has recently released.
If you are already tired of the single core or even dual core handsets, HTC are preparing a quad-core new baby, HTC Edge.
Apparently, the smartphone will be the first Tegra 3-powered Android smartphone with a 4.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a maximum 1280×720 resolution, 720p display and an 8MP camera with 28-millimeter f/2.2 lens.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget the AP30 Tegra CPU from NVIDIA which offers four 1.5GHz cores. In addition to all this, the smartphone will have 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0 and 32 GB internal storage. Regarding the software, it will also have improved HTC services such as HTC Listen(music store), HTC Read(book store), HTC Play (used for gaming), HTC Watch and HTC’s custom user interface, HTC Sense 4.0.
Now, I don’t know how you feel but this sure sounds good for a smartphone and personally, I can’t wait to see this out there on shelves. The thing is, we still have no information regarding its availability or its price but we’ll sure expect it in 2012 running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
It’s been some time since the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has been released and seems that the new Android SDK is already available for download.
The new features that comes in the Ice Cream Sandwich OS are incredibly great and brings the Android Beam along with a new Visual Voicemail API, and an NFC-based feature that will provide users the possibility to instantly send info on the applications they are using.
The new UI framework will offer various possibilities for the application developers so that they ca bring an improved software for smartphones and tablet PCs, and streamlined development across all device types. It will pack all the familiar Android 3.x interface elements and APIs such as content loaders, Action Bar, rich notifications, various capabilities, secure management of credentials, OpenGL ES texture views, stylus input, button support, hover events and resizable home screen widgets.
The new Android OS version brings major improvements regarding the social networking aspect, such as various applications oriented to integrate contacts, profile data, and calendar events, so that every app can be able to read data from the provider. For example, on this new SDK with your permission any application can add events to the shared database and manage dates, attendees, alerts, and reminders.
Seems that Samsung Italy has already confirmed the six lucky devices that will soon taste the Ice Cream flavour, and on the list with Android 4.0 we can find the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the last but not the least, the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
It’s very possible that very soon we’ll see the next Google smartphone with a brand new OS rumored from some time, called the Ice Cream Sandwich, the 4.0 version of Android.
The features that this new Nexus Prime smartphone from Google will include are:
- 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass;
- Runs of Android Ice cream sandwich (ver.4.0);
- Measuring 9mm thin;
- Powered by TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocking at 1.2GHz;
- 1 GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage;
- 5-megapixel main camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera;
- High-definition 1080p video capture support;
- LTE/HSPA support;
- Wi-Fi a/b/g/n;
- NFC support;
- Powered by 1750mAh battery.
After reading through the specs, it’s clear that there will not be a very powerful smartphone compared with the other smartphones launched so far. The 1.5GHz processors have been implemented foe a while on a few smartphones and the 1.2GHz that the Nexus Prime features it’s to slow to be compared with the Galaxy S2 HD LTE for example, which has about the same specifications with the next Google Smartphone, but features a small camera and slower CPU. A few other powerful smartphones are the HTC Sensation XE and the HTC Amaze 4G.
Samsung Nexus Prime is expected to be released on Samsung Unpached event that will take place on October 11.
