Images of HTC’s Pyramid Android smartphone surface

A live image of HTC’s unannounced Pyramid Android smartphone, rumored to possibly land on T-Mobile, has been leaked — and it looks a bit different than earlier renders. The Pyramid is sitting next to a Desire HD in the shot above, and based on its size we assume the speculation around the device having a 4.3-inch qHD display to be correct. Unlike last week’s leaked shot, though, the live version here shows a camera with dual-LED flash. Other rumors have suggested it will be powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and it will pack 768MB of RAM. It is suggested that the Pyramid could land sometime in May, so hopefully HTC will put and end to the rumors with an announcement during CTIA this week.

Image of Sprint-branded Motorola XOOM surfaces online

Image of Sprint-branded Motorola XOOM surfaces online

Sprint Users forum member r0fl is at it again. This time, the sleuthy Sprint user has posted an image of what appears to be a Sprint-branded Motorola XOOM tablet. The device, which is currently offered with cellular connectivity exclusively by CDMA carrier Verizon Wireless, should carry the same set of specifications as the model currently being sold. What is not clear, however, is if the device will ship WiMAX-enabled or WiMAX upgradeable. R0fl has a proven track record when it comes to unreleased Sprint hardware — back in December he leaked images of Sprint’s MiFi 4082 and HTC’s EVO Shift 4G prior to their release.

Icons of white Verizon iPhone found in iTunes 10.2

Icons of white Verizon iPhone found in iTunes 10.2

The devil’s in the details, at least that’s what they say. End-users combing through Apple’s latest iTunes 10.2 update have unearthed several interesting artifacts — images of the white iPhone in both the AT&T and Verizon flavors. The AT&T icon has been included in the program’s contents since the albino smartphone was first promised back in June of last year. The white Verizon iPhone , complete with it’s second diversity antenna break, however, was added recently. Last week, Apple’s VP of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, took to Twitter to let a curious user know that a white iPhone would be available “this spring.” It’s widely assumed that the iDevice maker will announce an update to its smartphone, being called the iPhone 5, in the June/July timeframe. Connecting the two dots, many thought — present company included — that the white iPhone Schiller was referring to would be delivered in the form of the iPhone 5. The addition of these white, iPhone 4-lookalike icons could mean one of three things: the iPhone 4 will continue to be sold in both black and white, even after the release of the iPhone 5; the next iPhone looks identical to the previous model; or there is no iPhone 5 coming this summer. It also could be the Cupertino company messing with us, and if that is the case, good on ya Apple. More →

New images of Motorola’s DROID 3 surface

New images of Motorola’s DROID 3 smartphone have surfaced online, courtesy of Howard Forums. The device —which will be heading to Verizon Wireless — is seen exposing its QWERTY keyboard, complete with dedicated number keys. Since the numerals are no longer piggybacking on lettered keys, Motorola was able to provide easier access to more non-alphanumeric characters — the presence of the Euro (€), Pound (£), and Yen (¥) symbols are most notable. We also can see and HDMI-out port flanking the micro USB port on the device’s side. Hit the jump to see one additional image. More →

Images, specs of HTC’s Pyramid Android handset surface

The leaks are flying out of xda.cn at a fast and furious pace today. The site has posted renderings of another leaked, HTC handset, the Android-based Pyramid. The site reports that the device will sport a 1.2GHz processor, 4.3-inch Super LCD, qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution; 768MB of RAM; front and rear facing cameras; along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios. The site also lists Honeycomb (Android 3.0) as the operating system the device will run — which sort of calls the rest of the specs into question. Again, xda.cn has a mixed track record when it comes to leaked devices, and while the images look to be authentic, the specifications could simply be overzealous predictions made by the site. More →

Images of Motorola’s Daytona, DROID 3, and LTE Targa surface online, headed to Verizon

Images of Motorola’s Daytona, DROID 3, and LTE Targa surface online, headed to Verizon

Howard Forums member wnrussell has treated us to images of three unannounced handsets from Motorola — all of which look set to launch on Verizon Wireless sometime in the future. Details are scarce on all three devices, but we gain a bit of information from looking at the photographs. Above is a handset being called the Motorola Targa. It looks to be an LTE, Android device with an HDMI-out port and front-facing camera. Several Howard Forums members performed some CSI-style enhancements to the image and believe the camera sitting behind that rear protrusion reads “13MP” — 13 megapixels. Next on the list is a handset being called the DROID 3. The image of the DROID 3 was provided a la carte with no details, but we can see that the device appears to have a much thinner screen wrapped in an attractive chrome bezel along with a front-facing camera. The last image is a handset that looks nearly identical to the current DROID X, and was posted as having the name Daytona. The device is running Android 2.2.1 and bears the model number MB870 — the original DROID X has a model number of MB810. We’re not really sure about this handset, as it doesn’t seem as though it will serve much of a purpose with this Targa character hanging around. It could, however, be an earlier prototype that has been scratched. It’s pretty exciting stuff for those Motorola DROID fans out there. Hit the jump to check out the additional images. More →

The crew over at AndroidSpin have acquired four images of the device along with a handful of specifications. What can we expect from the DROID Incredible 2?

No word on when, exactly, we might see this handset hit store shelves. Follow the jump to view a few more images of the device. More →

64GB iPhone ‘engineering prototype’ smuggled out of Foxconn [video]

64GB iPhone ‘engineering prototype’ smuggled out of Foxconn [video]

Blog M.I.C. Gadget has acquired an interesting treasure from China, a 64GB iteration of Apple’s iPhone. Rumors of the existence of a high-capacity iPhone have been circulating the web for the last few days, but this is the first time we’ve been treated to crystal clear images and video of the handset. The device, for the most part, looks identical to the current iPhone 4, but bears its closest resemblance to the lost iPhone purchased by Gizmodo last year. The 64GB iPhone, which is being described as an “engineering prototype,” lacks the plus and minus engravings on the volume keys and the silver ring which the surrounds the camera lens is also absent — both omissions on Gizmodo’s model as well. The device has a model number 995-6049LL, is running iOS 4.1, and is not SIM-locked. The faux model number and FCC ID engraved on the back of M.I.C.’s device also match those found on the Giz model. The device certainly does seem to be authentic, and if so, our only question is whether this is what we should expect to see announced this spring, or if this is a pre-iPhone 4 release prototype. We’re hoping for the latter. Hit the jump to check out the video and a few extra images. More →

Verizon’s Samsung Stealth gets pictured; April release date rumored

Verizon’s Samsung Stealth gets pictured; April release date rumored

Formerly known as the SCH-i520, the Samsung Stealth made a brief appearance at the Consumer Electronics show back in January. Announced along with ten other LTE devices by Verizon Wireless, the Stealth was forced to play second fiddle to the ThunderBolt, BIONIC, and XOOM. But today, we get to pay a little homage to the forgotten, 4G handset, thanks to several images of the device frolicking in the wild acquired by blog TechnoBuffalo. If you recall correctly, the device boasts a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p video recording, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, LTE/CDMA radios, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, aGPS, HDMI-out, and Android 2.2. TB‘s tipster notes that the battery on the device seemed to perform quite well, yielding a full day of use with LTE enabled, and that the device should hit store shelves in mid-April. Pick your poison: ThunderBolt or Stealth. Hit the jump to check out some additional images of the Samsung handset. More →

GSM-capable HP TouchPad gets hands-on treatment [video]

GSM-capable HP TouchPad gets hands-on treatment [video]

Oh boy, HP’s corporate security team is not going to be happy with this. Courtesy of blog tinhte.vn, we have been treated to a handful of high-resolution photographs and a two-plus minute video of a GSM-capable HP TouchPad frolicking free in Vietnam. The blog notes that the tablet — a 3G GSM version with 32GB of memory — seems to be void of any useable software and, for whatever reason, doesn’t like power chargers from third-parties. The TouchPad is due out this summer at an undisclosed price. Have a look at the video after the break and let us know what you think! More →

Verizon’s HTC Trophy is a world phone, might not launch until June

Verizon’s HTC Trophy is a world phone, might not launch until June

Enthusiast blog wpcentral reported on Wednesday some new details surrounding what should eventually become Verizon Wireless’ first Windows Phone 7 device. Photographs of the phone obtained by the site reveal a few interesting tidbits, namely the apparent presence of both CDMA and GSM radios. We also get our first glimpse of Verizon’s My Verizon Mobile app for Windows Phone 7, which looks to shy away from Microsoft’s Metro UI in favor of a more typical layout. Finally, an image of highlighted text reaffirms the obvious — the Trophy is equipped with Microsoft’s first major software update for Windows Phone 7, which is a requirement for CDMA phones to function. Initial rumors pointed to a Trophy release in late March on the Verizon Wireless network, but wpcentral now reports that the phone might not launch until June.

White iPad 2 could be in the works

White iPad 2 could be in the works

The white iPhone 4 has yet to come to fruition, but it looks like that hasn’t deterred Apple from experimenting with future, pale products. According to 9 to 5 Mac, Apple is working on a white iteration of its yet-to-be-announced iPad 2. The information comes courtesy of the above image, which is purportedly a white bezel (also known as the digitizer) from the next generation iPad. The above bezel looks extremely similar to leaked images of the black digitizer that have been circulating the Web. It also appears to match the design of potential iPad 2 screen protectors revealed earlier this month. Hit the jump for a second image showing the rear side of the panel, and sit tight until March 2nd when all this should be hashed out. More →

Is this Apple’s next iPad? [updated]

Is this Apple’s next iPad? [updated]

We have been sent an image that looks very convincing. A tipster has shot us over what could be — and appears to be — an image of the back of Apple’s next generation iPad. The rear-facing camera, redesigned speaker, and flat back with tapered edges are all visible. We’ll know either way pretty soon — Apple’s iPad event is quickly approaching.

UPDATE: Though it is highly likely that the image above will end up being a good representation of the iPad 2, it’s looking like this image was created by an Apple fan and is not an official render.
