Wireless carriers regularly offer special deals to new customers, hoping to lure in additional subscribers. For example, both of Motorola's most recent Android OS-based smartphones are available at well below their regular prices to those who are willing to switch carriers.
Verizon is apparently getting closer to introducing its third Android OS-based phone. This model -- code-named the Calgary -- has reportedly shown up in this carrier's product database. It's expected to be an inexpensive option for those who want a smartphone with a keyboard.
The T-Mobile G1 is over a year old, but it may soon have new life breathed into it courtesy of a significant system software upgrade. An unconfirmed report says Android 2.0 will be coming to this smartphone by the end of this month.
Sprint will be introducing a very high-end HTC smartphone code-named the Supersonic, if some leaked information is correct. This model will supposedly pack a 4.3-inch touchscreen, Google's Android OS, and the 4G networking standard WiMAX.
Sprint has introduced an update for the system software on the Samsung Moment. This isn't the promised upgrade to Android 2.0, but it does bring a number of small improvements.
T-Mobile USA has just significantly dropped the prices on a wide array of smartphones, many of which debuted fairly recently. This includes the BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Touch Pro II, Motorola Cliq, and several more.
The price usually given for the Google Nexus One is $180, but that's the price for those switching to T-Mobile to get this new Android OS-based smartphone. Current T-Mobile subscribers had been asked to pay $200 more. However, this price has been reduced a bit.
Android-powered smartphones are nothing new, but the MID-M1 is making waves for what manufacturer Inbrics seemingly intends to be a truly all-in-one mobile device. This upcoming device will feature an AM-OLED display, WiMAX, two cameras, and much more.
The Google Nexus One has been on the market for a week now, and no official number of units sold so far has been announced. An unofficial estimate is available, though, and it's surprisingly low, considering the amount of media attention this device attracted.
The Google Nexus One is the hottest new Android phone, and a market analyst has come with a prediction that over 5 million of these devices will sell in 2010. That number is dwarfed by another analyst's predictions for Apple iPhone sales, though.
The Motorola Backflip is no longer a rumor, and Brighthand's Site Editor was there for the official unveiling. He brings us a video preview of this upcoming smartphone, which will run Google's Android OS and have an unusual design.
