AT&T is the last of the big four U.S. carriers without an Android model. But that might change soon, thanks to a Motorola smartphone with an unusual design featuring a flip-around keyboard.
T-Mobile Top Picks is coming to the version of the Android Market on this carrier's smartphones that run Google's operating system. This includes a variety of applications that help customers customize their device and manage their T-Mobile account.
The earliest reports on the Google Nexus One said that this model will offer support for both AT&T's and T-Mobile's 3G networks, but this apparently isn't the case. Instead, anyone using this Android-powered smartphone will be limited to AT&T's 2.5G network.
Google will introduce its first smartphone at the beginning of January, if an unconfirmed report is correct. This device -- code-named the Nexus One -- will supposedly be sold with service from T-Mobile USA, and offer a range of high-end features.
Many Google employees have been given a device with an early version of Android OS 2.1 on it, showing that the next version of this smartphone operating system will have more homescreens, as well as some other changes to the user interface.
The Web is buzzing with reports that Google is going to release an Android-based smartphone called the the Nexus One under its own brand name next year. Google itself tells a very different story, though.
The Motorola Milestone is the GSM version of the Android flagship smartphone, the Motorola Droid. It was released in Europe, but a few U.S. retailers have this device, which can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile.
HTC has promised that it's going to upgrade the HTC Droid Eris to Android OS 2 early next year, moving it up to the latest version of Google's operating system for smartphones. This will bring an array of new features.
The system software on the HTC Droid Eris is being updated, but not to Android 2.0. Instead, a number of small bugs are being removed, including one that sometimes prevented to device from correctly switching from 2G to 3G networking.
Motorola and Verizon have begun sending out an update for the system software on the Motorola Droid, but so far only a few thousand people have received it. Those who are impatient can now update their smartphone manually.
Sony Ericsson is reportedly going to make versions of the Xperia X10 with support for AT&T's and T-Mobile's 3G networks, raising the possibility that this high-end Android-based smartphone is going to be released by one or both of these wireless carriers.
