Pocket-lint is reporting that Google will release the 2.4 iteration of Android in June/July. According to “multiple sources familiar with the matter”, there will be an announcement to this end at the beginning of May during the company’s IO conference. Android 2.4 will reportedly be dubbed Ice Cream (or potentially Ice Cream Sandwich) following on the heels of the launch of Donut (D), Eclair (E), Froyo (F), Gingerbread (G) and Honeycomb (H).
Motorola today at CES unveiled the AT&T bound Atrix 4G Android smartphone. This device packs in a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with 1GB of RAM. The massive 4-inch display will be a QHD 24-bit capacitive touchscreen, giving Apple’s Retina Display a run for its money.
You may remember the Meizu M8 from a couple of years ago. When it came to Chinese-sourced iPhone knockoffs, it was one of the most impressive. That’s not to say that it was anywhere close to being a top-tier phone, but the Meizu M9 is sounding even more impressive. The M9 is like an iPhone 4 to the M8’s iPhone 3G. So to speak.
Some people like their mobile phones to be a little more compact, but that trend has definitely swung in the other direction in recent years. “Slate” style smartphones are all the rage and Acer is prepared to go big rather than go home with its upcoming 4.8-inch monster.

The name Augen doesn’t ring any bells, although it does sound like something a player would scream out loud in a Street Fighter II match.

We knew this phone was coming and now it’s finally here. The Droid Incredible by HTC has officially launched with Verizon Wireless, offering some crazy speeds and functionality. You may have once known it simply as the HTC Incredible, the Droid Incredible could actually be even better than the Google Nexus One in many ways. For instance, you get an impressive 8.0 megapixel camera compared to the 5.0 megapixel shooter on the Nexus One. Other highlights include heavy social media integration, Android Market access, and high-speed 3G connectivity.
Sprint’s first WiMax/4G phone is official, and it’s everything your dream smartphone could be. The HTC Evo 4G is a combination of HTC’s Touch HD2 hardware, and a bit of Sense UI Android goodness of the HTC Legend, pushing 720p HDMI output and ultimately becoming the future of portable multimedia entertainment.
The Evo will be exclusive to Sprint, with blazing fast downloads over their 4G network, it will also work on their existing 3G network, but 4G is really where its at (10 times faster than 3G). Running Android 2.1, with a beautiful 4.3-inch TFT LCD screen at 480×800 resolution, we would expect this powerful machine to support DiVX, but no official word on that just yet.
