Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Delayed Until June To Get Quad-Core Exynos Processor?


A Korean newspaper claims that Samsung is delaying the launch of the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to June so it can bump up its processor to a quad-core Exynos 4412. This is welcome news if it holds true since the Note 10.1 was announced at Mobile World Congress with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, which seems like yesterday’s news now that quad-core is the new kid in town. There is currently no device that is using the Exynos 4412, but the Samsung Galaxy III is rumored to be the first. If the Note 10.1 will be getting it as well, Samsung could be timing the releases of both devices together.

Of course, with no official release date from Samsung, can we really call this a delay? In any case, if this is true, this is the second delay of a Samsung tablet this month with the Galaxy Tab 2 being pushed until the end of April for more ICS testing and tweaks.

I know everyone hates delays, but to be honest, I applaud Samsung for making sure their products are not only fully tested and working well before release, but also that the specs are kept up to date and competitive. Now let’s just hope the rumors are true since I could sure use a 10.1-inch, quad-core, S Pen enabled Galaxy Note.

HTC’s 2012 Q1 Earnings Are Out and They Aren’t What HTC Wanted


Taiwanese manufacturer HTC released their  unaudited earnings for the Q1 of 2012. HTC earned a total revenue of NT$67,790 million, which is a decrease on their year-on-year of 34.92%. January 2012 was a bad month for HTC compared to January 2011. They had a 52.55% decrease from year-on-year(YoY). Things are looking up for HTC though. Even though they reported loses in February and March. The decline is slowing and looks to be turning around for HTC. The YoY for February was just under -37% and the YoY for March was just under -17%. It does look as if HTC is righting their ship and with the new HTC One line releasing, things can only get better from here. What do you think? Can HTC turn it around and post some earnings this year? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Max Payne Mobile coming to Android on April 26


From the ones who brought gamers everywhere hits like Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto, popular game developer Rockstar Games aims to bring the familiar hit Max Payne to Android users everywhere with Max Payne Mobile. Experience the classic PC Max Payne that has been optimized for Android and iOS devices. The game is said to support HD graphics, high resolution textures, Social Club connectivity and user-customizable controls. Rockstar Games has stated that they will soon release a list of compatible Android phones ready for their April 26 release. Seeing as how Grand Theft Auto III for Android is currently $4.99 in the Play Store, we can assume that Max Payne Mobile will follow suit. Whether you feel the price, if any, will be worth it or not, one has to applaud the level of quality and standard that Android gaming and development has acquired within the last year.

LG developing a “thinking smartphone” for their future Android offerings


Over the last year or so, LG has really made some strides in their manufacturing and development of Android. You won’t have to look very hard to find a LG Android phone with fairly decent specs and hardware. However in this industry, it’s important to incorporate features and functions that will help separate oneself from the pack. HTC has their Sense UI and Beats Audio, Apple has Siri and a few Android rip-off features and now, LG will present a “thinking smartphone”. Managing Director of LG Mobile Communications Kwon Bong-suk has recently announced the company’s plan to bring personalized intelligence into their future Android offerings. An example used describes a scenario where you have set your alarm for 6 a.m. While you sleep, the phone uses GPS to keep track of road conditions and decides that because of an unusual amount of traffic on that day, it will have the alarm go off at 5:30 instead, allowing you to make it to your destination on time. Where was this phone during my college years?! There are no more details at this time as to when we can expect to start seeing this exciting new feature. Stay tuned to Talk Android as we continue to provide all the latest Android news and updates.

Samsung Files New Trademarks For The Galaxy Sire, Perx And Lift Smartphones


It looks like we could possibly have new Samsung Galaxy devices on the way. We’ve just heard that Samsung applied for trademarks with the following names: Sire (Serial Number: 85585397), the Galaxy Perx (Serial Number:85585381) and the Galaxy Lift (Serial Number: 85585386). In addition, Sammy clearly identify the goods and services with the United

States Patent and Trademark Office as “mobile phones, smartphones”.
While it’s more than likely we’ll be seeing some new smartphones on the way, Samsung has naturally made no announcement on these upcoming phones yet and will likely stay mum for the time being. Stay tuned with Talk Android for further news on each of the potentially new additions to the Galaxy line of smartphones.

Was That a 3D version of the EVO 4G LTE in HTC’s ‘Making Of Video’?


Could there be a 3D version of the new HTC EVO 4G LTE in our future? If you look at this “Get to know the HTC EVO 4G LTE” video you can see a quick glimpse of a dual camera version of the final product. Clearly HTC isn’t trying to hide anything from us because you can see the device plain as day. This wouldn’t come as complete surprise if it did eventually hit store shelves because the EVO 3D needs a successor too. Who knows, though, this could just end up being another one of their prototypes that ends up in their “could’ve been” pile. Check out the video below to see what the device could potentially look like. It shows up right around the 23 second mark.

What do you guys think? Would HTC sneak an image of an unannounced device into this video?

Google CEO Larry Page Gives 2012 Update For Android, Highlights 850,000 Devices Are Being Activated Daily


Google’s head honcho Larry Page took some time recently to give his formal update on all things Google for 2012, including the Android platform. In an unsurprisingly bright outlook, Page expresses his excitement for Android specifically by sharing how the platform is not only on fire, but:

“ The pace of mobile innovation has never been greater. Over 850,000 devices are activated daily through a network of 55 manufacturers and more than 300 carriers. Android is a tremendous example of the power of partnership, and it just gets better with each version. The latest update, Ice Cream Sandwich, has a beautiful interface that adapts to the form of the device. Whether it’s on a phone or tablet, the software works seamlessly”.

He also adds that Android users are able to do a ton of actions ranging from “searching for something” or “turning your phone into a wallet”. Furthermore, he highlights the ability to access information anywhere and everywhere by stating:

“As devices multiply and usage changes (many users coming online today may never use a desktop machine), it becomes more and more important to ensure that people can access all of their stuff anywhere… so I am excited about products like Gmail and Google Docs that work well across Android and desktop. With Chrome now recently available on Android, switching devices becomes painless, too, because all of your tabs are just there across your desktop and Android. And with Google Play, movies, books, apps, and games are all accessible from the Web or an Android device—no cables, downloading, or syncing required. I think there is a theme here”!

Finally he shares a quick tidbit on the recent acquisition of Motorola Mobility. He shares that Google is “excited about the opportunities to build great devices capitalizing on the tremendous success and growth of Android and Motorola’s long history of technological innovation.”

We’re excited too Mr. Page– believe us.
