Word is that a slightly upgraded version of Motorola’s Defy Android smartphone may soon arrive at AT&T. If this rumor turns out to be accurate, the handset will get support for 850MHz, 1,900MHz and 2,100MHz HSPA bands, which are used by AT&T and some Canadian carriers.

Differences from the original device are said to include a 1GHz OMAP 3620 processor instead of the 800MHz CPU, and Android 2.3.3. Aside from that, RAM, storage space, camera specs and the 3.7-inch display should remain the same.

This Spy Camera Looks Like A Sony Alarm Clock and Radio

Posted in Spy Gear by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2011

This spy camera is scary because it looks just like a Sony alarm clock. In fact, I have the Sony model that it is imitating in my home. I hope no one has been spying. This hidden camera records 720p HD videos in MPEG4 format and stores them on an SD card (16GB provided).

It will give you a time and date stamp and is motion activated. I don’t think that anyone would even suspect it was more than a clock, especially when it functions as a regular alarm clock/radio when it isn’t spying. It will cost you $329.89.

R/C cars steered by Android smartphones

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2011

R/C cars are fun. Almost every kid has played with one at some point. Now the BlueDrone project wants to use your Android smartphone as a controller and get rid of those clunky remotes. The concept pairs the car with the Bluetooth-enabled handset and allows you to maneuver it with your phone using the onscreen controls.

It delivers a drive time of 3 hours with a range of about 30 feet. The custom app will let the driver use the accelerometer to steer as an alternative to the onscreen wheel as well. They just need $200,000 to commercialize the project. We hope they get it.
