The HTC Hero reportedly will be getting an operating system upgrade to Android OS 2.1, but not for several more months. This smartphone is currently running version 1.5, and Hero users have been getting impatient since version 2.1 was released several weeks ago. UPDATED
Google has released a Google Voice app that runs on the iPhone and on ones running Palm's webOS. This service lets multiple phones use one number, and it also offers voicemail transcriptions and inexpensive international calling.
More evidence has emerged that Google is going to release a version of the Nexus One that will offer full support for AT&T's wireless network. This would mean that customers of three U.S. carriers will be able to use this very high-end Android OS-based smartphone.
Ever since the Google Nexus One debuted from T-Mobile USA users of this Android-based smartphone have been reporting problems with connecting to 3G. The companies responsible for this device say they are close to releasing a software update that should help.
In its heyday, the T-Mobile Sidekick was a hot device with teens and over-exposed celebrities. But the popularity of this line of featurephones has waned in recent years, and it now may be close its end.
A recently announced Android OS-based smartphone with an odd name and an unusual design is definitely going to be released in the U.S., and may be headed for T-Mobile. The Motorola Motoroi will have an irregular tablet shape, and will have much in common with the Motorola Droid.
Very preliminary details on a smartphone supposedly on its way to Sprint say that this model will be one of the first with Android OS 3.0. The release of the HTC Supersonic -- which will reportedly have a 4.3-inch screen and WiMAX -- is still quite some time away, though.
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.
Since the iPhone OS debuted, Google has been the default search engine. But that could change soon, if an unconfirmed report is correct.
T-Mobile has released a new version of the myTouch 3G. The Fender Limited Edition has a new look as well as some other music-friendly features. Aside from these changes, it's identical to the version of this Android OS smartphone that debuted last year.
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.
