Gorilla Glass 2 is just as strong, tough and impressive as the original Gorilla Glass. Only difference? Gorilla Glass 2 is waaaaaaaay thinner at only .8mm compared to the original Gorilla Glass at 1mm. And at that size, 20% is a big freaking deal.
LG's Spectrum handset isn't anything noteworthy on paper. 1.5 GHz processor and Android 2.3. But. The 4.5-inch smartphone packs an HD display with a higher resolution than the iPhone 4S. And it's much bigger.
Since HTC properly burst on to the scene with its Android handsets a few years ago, the company has seen nothing but success, with its profits soaring year-on-year. It looks like those times are a'changing though.
If you're not already consumed with desire by Samsung and Google's cutting-edge Android 4.0 showcase the Galaxy Nexus, how about this -- a new white version. This will be arriving at the UK's SIM-free retailers in the week commencing February 6th, accompanied by a new standard black model with 32GB of internal storage space. [Clove]
Short answer: yes. Corning announced today that it will be debuting the next iteration of Gorilla Glass at CES next week...though as cryptically as possible. It is reputedly designed with device manufacturers' move towards thinner, lighter displays in mind. Take that, sharp corners. [Corning via Engadget]
Motorola has just announced two fancy new budget Android smartphones in the form of the Motorola Motoluxe and the Defy Mini. Both phones pack Gingerbread, so no Ice Cream Sandwich on a budget I’m afraid, but are both heading to Europe in February.
In 2007, Steve Jobs stood on a stage and denounced the "smart"phone—ugly, mismatched keyboards of Nokia and RIM. Rightfully! But he also championed Apple as the mobile keyboard killer. However, IBM beat them almost two decades earlier.
A couple of rumours about Samsung's smartphone future have emerged, claiming that the company's forthcoming Galaxy S III will arrive powered by a quad-core processor -- and a separate 3D Galaxy phone is also on the way.
After rumours, sketches and leaked shots, the LG Prada 3.0 has finally been unveiled. With its 4.3-inch WVGA "NOVA" display, 8.5mm profile and Prada-styled Android skin, it's certainly a looker. Whether that's your thing or not, it's not all looks and no substance. It's powered by a dual-core 1GHz TI chip, and packs both a 1.3MP front-facing snapper for video calling, and a rear 8MP camera for point-and-shoot replacement duties.
LG is showing off its new Prada phone later today. So it goes without saying that official images have leaked beforehand, showing a phone with a seriously weird black & white Android reskin. Could you love this? It's a dual-core 1GHz model with a 4.3" screen, if that helps you decide. [PocketNow]
Sony Ericsson maybe going Sony-only from mid-2012, but the doomed partnership has one last phone up its sleeve and it's been photographed again -- this time with the screen on, and showing its true colours.
We heard rumours of Panasonic's re-entry into the UK market, but now it's been confirmed that in March next year, we'll see a Euro-Panasonic smartphone roll-out. A 4.3-inch Android phone reference design was shown off too, which shows Panasonic's heading in the right direction for a decent looking phone, at the very least.
