Flame red Nintendo 3DS landing September 9th for $169.99

Nintendo announced Wednesday that it will launch a “flame red” version of its Nintendo 3DS on September 9th.

Nintendo has sold 830,000 3DS units in the U.S. since its March 27th launch. Super Mario Land 3D is expected to hit store shelves in November and Mario Kart 7 will be available in December.

HTC Kingdom and Rider Android phones spotted

HTC Kingdom and Rider Android phones spotted

Here are a couple of leaks to kick off your Friday morning: the HTC Kingdom (left) and the HTC Rider (right) were both spotted and photographed recently by 911Sniper. Specs for the Rider and the Kingdom are slim, so we can only report on what’s apparent in the images. Both phones clearly run Android and appear to have 4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD displays, although even that’s not confirmed. The circles around the main icons on the Rider remind us of an EVO device (perhaps this is Sprint bound?), and we definitely dig the red exterior. We doubt this is the last we’ll see of both phones, so we’re looking forward to clearer shots and more spec leaks in the coming weeks and months. More →

Peter Jackson purchases thirty RED EPIC cameras to film The Hobbit in 3D

Peter Jackson purchases thirty RED EPIC cameras to film The Hobbit in 3D

If you think a single $58,000 RED EPIC camera package is a lot to blow on a 5K resolution production camera, Peter Jackson and crew have just swooped in and snagged thirty of them. The entire package comes with the EPIC-M body, titanium mount, 5-inch touchscreen LCD, REDmote, four batteries, a four-pack of 128-GB SSDs to shoot onto, and of course, a charger. RED is planning on assembling Peter Jackson’s order by hand starting next month into January and then roll into full production one month after that. They are hoping for general availability by NAB in April, but as usual with RED, that’s not something written in stone. The Hobbit starts filming in February. More →

Dell Streak now available in red, white; unlocked units ship with Froyo

Dell announced in a blog post Tuesday morning that its supersized Dell Streak is now available in two new colors. Additionally, the device is now being sold unlocked and contract-free directly from Dell.com. Dell’s 5-inch smart-tablet-phone can now be had in “Pure White”, as seen above, or “Cherry Red.” These two new colors are in addition to the black model that has been available since the summer, and they will be available exclusively through Best Buy in the U.S. While these two new color options will both be sold running Android 1.6, Dell is also now offering an unlocked Streak for $579 that will ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Current Streak owners aren’t being left in the dust, of course — the Froyo update is also currently rolling out to European Streaks, with all U.S. versions set to be updated some time in December.

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G's four colors pictured

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G's four colors pictured

It looks like blog CellPhone Signal got their hands on several images of T-Mobile’s yet-to-be-released myTouch 4G HSPA+ set and all its color variants. As originally announced by T-Mobile, the device will be available in white, black, red, and plum. To be honest, we’re a little disappointed T-Mobile didn’t jazz up the color names — we were thinking abyss blackluscious lavender, $4-cabernet red, and lion’s tooth white… or something like that. Regardless, if you’re planning on picking up a myTouch 4G, and prefer a little color in your pocket or purse, have a look and let us know what you think. More →

UK style Google Voice phone booths to start appearing in U.S.

At the same event where Google introduced voice calling in Gmail, the search giant also announced that it would be placing Google Voice phone booths in select U.S. locations. The GV stations, which will closely resemble the iconic red telephone booths in the U.K., will begin appearing on college campuses and in airports in the next few weeks. The purpose of the old-fashioned booths is to get people more acquainted with Google Voice, allowing them to see how GV’s voice call-quality compares with more traditional landline services. Google said they would release more details about the telephone-towers in the coming weeks. More →

First up is the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in Fuchsia Red. It hits T-Mobile’s retail stores and online today and will retail for $49.99 with a two year service agreement.

HTC Incredible spotted with its covering off and a Verizon Wireless tattoo on its back

HTC Incredible spotted with its covering off and a Verizon Wireless tattoo on its back

htc-incredible-black-back

Images and details on the HTC Incredible have emerged from the depths of Android Forums today. Most notable is the loss of the bright orange backing which has been replaced with a matte black covering emblazoned with a Verizon Wireless logo. Internally, the Incredible is rumored to have 500 MB of RAM (320 available), an 8 megapixel camera, measurements of 117.5 x 58.5 x 11.9mm, and a blinding red interior with a matching red battery. Though it packs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the Incredible, just like the Acer Liquid A1, has been underclocked to 768 MHz, a battery savings measure which hopefully can be reversed once the handset has been rooted. Thankfully, the slowed down processor seems to have little effect on perceived performance as the Android 2.1 handset is reportedly “blazing fast”. If all these circulating rumors pan out, look for this handset to touchdown as soon as April or as late as May with Verizon Wireless. Hit the jump for a few more spy shots. More →

LG New Chocolate BL20 gets official; headed to O2 UK for €269

bl20-new-chocolate

After its early debut on LG’s developer website last week, the New Chocolate BL20 has been officially announced by LG. A full product page, flickr slideset and an official press release all serve to confirm the existence of this handset, though we pretty much already knew all there was to know about this little guy. For those on the other side of the Atlantic, the sexy slider with a distinctive red keypad is expected to land at O2 UK in Q4 for €269 ($394USD). As for the rest of us, it’s still a waiting game we’re afraid. Hit the jump for the press release.

LG’s latest and greatest Chocolate offering is shaping up to be the entry level BL20 touch-enabled slider. Shots of handset adorned with its red keypad have been bouncing around for a while but LG has been mum as far as details go. The silence has just been broken however — though it’s not an official announcement, the BL20 has made its first appearance on LG’s developer website with a full list of specifications including:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900 MHz
  • UMTS/HSDPA (3.6Mbps) 900/2100 MHz
  • 2.4-inch QVGA display with 262K colors
  • ARM9 processor
  • 256MB Flash memory
  • 128 MB RAM
  • 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus,  flash and video recording
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • FM radio
  • MicroSD card expansion, up to 16GB
  • USB 2.0
  • Proprietary OS with SMS and MMS 1.2, Email (SMTP, POP3, IMAP4), WAP 2.0/HTML/XHTML web browser
  • 106.9 x 50.8 x 12.3 mm and 115 grams

Most of what we already knew about the slider has been confirmed, so now we just need LG to get moving and make this handset official.

AT&T's upcoming Samsung A797 gets pictured, sold on the cheap

AT&T's upcoming Samsung A797 gets pictured, sold on the cheap

Among the bevy of handsets listed in our pre-launch list from this weekend, the Samsung A797 is one of the phones we knew very little about. Rest easy though, AT&T subscribers — as is always the case, it’s only a matter of time. It turns out some apparently unknowing Atlanta native managed to snag one of these bad boys early and since he is on his way over to Sprint, he’s dumping the A797 on Craig’s List. For $115. Oops. Beyond the form of the handset, there are only a few tidbits to be gleaned from the images. We know it’s a feature phone (ie dumb phone), lack of a d-pad suggests it has a touchscreen and it’s a portrait slider with a Palm-like keypad. Pretty cute at the right price point, which is probably going to be fairly low considering this guy is selling it so cheap. Any Atlanta-area readers considering contacting him?
