Sony Xperia ST26i Pictures Leak

Sony’s rumored next flagship, the LT29i Hayabusa, was outed in a blurrycam photo yesterday, followed by the official announcement for the Xperia GX and SX. Now another leaked image has made its way stateside from China, but this time it’s for the Sony ST26i, a rumored 4″ qHD, 1GHz device. Unlike the GX or SX, this handset keeps the capacitive buttons. Also, this will be the first Sony device to not have the green globe logo on it since Sony bought out Ericsson.

Other rumored specs include an ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and HD video. Now we wait for an announcement.

Who wants to Root their HTC One X and One XL?

I have to give a big thanks to the guys at XDA, as they have done it again. Kennethpenn has posted a very simple way to root your HTC One X and the HTC One XL. With a few easy steps you will be on your way to enjoying the sweet rewards that come with rooting your device. Custom ROMs, no bloatware, and improved battery life just to name a few. With that being said, I must remind you, rooting your phone voids your warranty, and all the blame is solely on you should something go wrong.

If you’re still reading this and want to know more, click on the source link below for all the instructions. I would also like to thank sparkym3 for the exploit and crisis187 for being a brave tester. We want to know in the comments below, how many of you plan to try this?

AT&T Points The Finger At Google When Asked About Timely Android Updates

When AT&T was asked why the carrier took so long to respond to Android updates on their smartphones, CEO Randall Stephenson responded with “Google determines what platform gets the newest releases and when. A lot of times, that’s a negotiated arrangement and that’s something we work at hard.” This seems to imply that Google had the bigger hand as far as when a current update is pushed to devices. Naturally, this caused the search giant to be somewhat confused. And while we could naturally see why an update might take some time to reach carrier devices with different technologies, skins and other variables, we’re thinking AT&T is just looking to pass the buck here. With expected confusion, Google’s spokesperson responded with the following:

“frankly we don’t understand what he is referring to”

So, it doesn’t appear that the answer was ultimately answered here but rather deflected and passed on to Google’s court. We’ll see if someone from AT&T’s camp can clear the matter up for us and get the ball rolling on some of these devices still running Froyo.
