Now HTC has announced that the testing went smoothly and that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be delivered to the Desire by the end of July. Great news since we are halfway through the month already.

An HTC representative says that the Thunderbolt should get Android 2.3 in the spring. We know thise because the representative named Carol was telling Droid-Life reader John about compatibility limits with Bluetooth, when she added that HTC was “excited to announce” the refresh. She says that more details would come closer to the launch.

Among the list of features mentioned were NFC and interface polish changes. This isn’t very surprising since most of HTC’s new phones will all launch with Android 2.3, but hey it’s always nice to have confirmation.

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2011

HTC’s entrance into the tablet market might be the HTC Flyer, which should ship this March in the US with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the operating system. The HTC Flyer will have its OS updated to Android 3.0 Honeycomb as soon as it becomes available.

It will be sold in the US via an unknown carrier. Probably not AT&T and Verizon since they are preparing to roll out the Motorola Xoom, and T-Mobile has announced the LG G-Slate. Sprint has the WiMax BlackBerry PlayBook. The tablet wars just keep amping up.

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2010

Just shortly after Google released the Android 2.3 SDK, developers have already spotted some new code that appears to be related to buttons on Sony’s PlayStation controllers. This discovery corroborates earlier rumors and leaks, including videos and images showing a PlayStation phone with a control configuration similar to the PSP Go.

The new code includes references to the L1, L2, R1 and R2 triggers found on PlayStation controllers, while Google has given generic labels to what looks like the Square, Triangle, X and Circle buttons.

Android Market gets ‘Related’ apps tab without Android 2.3

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on December 5th, 2010

Google has updated its Android Marketplace to deliver the highly requested ‘Related’ tab to help shoppers looking for similar apps. The feature which makes apps more easily discoverable, was at first thought to be unique to the forthcoming Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update. But users with a Droid 2 and Nexus One running Android 2.2 (Froyo) have discovered the tab appear on their devices overnight.

However, judging by the initial screenshots, the accuracy of the recommendations seems to need more tweaking. Users have reported finding related apps that are more relevant to their search up to a page down.

Google accidentally shows Android 2.3 in demo video

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2010

Google Hong Kong gave away a handful of Android 2.3 features in a video demonstrating voice commands on a Nexus One. The video has since been removed. The clip showed some cosmetic changes, like the green icons in the shortcut bar, the black menu bar and new buttons, but also the expanded Android Market. A third tab has also appeared on an app’s page that lets users find related apps on the store.

The video didn’t showcase some of the biggest features that are expected for Android 2.3, like video chat or WebM video, but it did confirm a push to make Android Market more discoverable.

It’s labeled as Android 2.3 in the pics, and this one features a back cover that’s similar to the original Galaxy S, just a bit more curved. Looks like the phone will have 720p video recording too.
