If you are anything like us, you are looking forward to the release of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T), the 10.1-inch Android tablet boasting an astounding 1920×1200 (1080p) resolution. It has been said that the device would see a European launch on July 10th and the recent FCC approval would put us right on track for a timely release. Sporting the Tegra 3 chipset, the TF700T that was just approved by the FCC is the Wi-Fi only version, the LTE equipped version is still nowhere to be seen. For those of you that are hoping to get your hands on the cellular version of the device, it looks like you will have to wait a bit longer but we imagine it will also be stopping by the FCC in the near future. Let’s just hope it’s sooner rather than later. We will keep you posted.
T-Mobile is bent on keeping their MyTouch branding alive and well and there’s no secret that the company has been in cahoots with Huawei to become the hardware manufacturer of the next gen device. That being said, a device strongly resembling the Ascend G312 has reared its little frame over at the FCC revealing the MyTouch moniker and dubbed the “U8680″. Could this be the next qwerty variant of the MyTouch line? The FCC docs and pics reveal that there is compatibility with HSPA, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS technologies. We know the device Huawei plans to release is a 4-inch WVGA res’d device which will have ICS 4.0 on board. There will also be a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T SoC and 1GB or RAM running on the device. For now, we’ll just have to speculate until an official announcement is made by Magenta. Feel free to hit up the source link below for more FCC goodies.
When shopping for a new Android tablet it is safe to say that picking one in the Tegra 3 flavor is the way to go. While there aren’t many slates yet to adorn such a powerful chip, a recent FCC filing shows that a new addition to the Toshiba Excite line-up is on its way. According to the FCC filing spotted by Engadget, the Toshiba Excite 7.7 (AT270) is headed for store shelves and should arrive on June 10th for $500.
As a reminder, the Excite 7.7 is the smaller version of the 10 and even 13-inch models but this ultra portable speed demon doesn’t fail to impress. The Excite 7.7 comes with a 7.7-inch (1280 x 800) AMOLED display and will feature stereo speakers, micro SD, micro USB, and micro HDMI. Measuring in at only 7.62mm thin, the 7.7 only weighs 13.4 ounces or 380 grams. Available June 10th, she will be priced at a seemingly expensive $499.99 for the 16GB model and $579.99 for the 32GB model. Surprisingly, the Excite 7.7 will have a better display than the bigger siblings, which is why it costs $50 more than the Excite 10.
You remember how we told you about that Lenovo tablet trying to sneak past everyone at the FCC last month? Well the Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 has officially been spotted in the wild and is on its way soon, very soon. Here in a promotional video, you can see the tablet’s 9.7-inch screen with the 4:3 IPS display and its impressive 8.9mm thin form factor in action. The device will also feature a TI-OMAP processor, front-facing 1.3MP camera, 4 SRS speakers for quality audio, 10 hours of battery life and Ice Cream Sandwich.
Now that the device is seen through all its glory, we shouldn’t expect it to be too long before interested buyers will be able to get their hands on one. In the meantime, why don’t you see the video in action once you hit the break?

We already knew that wireless distributor Brightstar announced they were bringing the Sony Xperia P, U, and S phones to the U.S. Now it looks as if the first of those, the Xperia P, has made it to the FCC to begin its paperwork journey to approval. From the FCC’s report, we know the phone will support the following:
- Quadband GSM (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900)
- HSPA capability
- Wi-Fi b/g/n
- RFID (NFC)
Nothing specific about which carrier will pick it up. Now we have to see if the Xperia U and S follow suit.
According to a recent FCC filing Motorola is prepared to bring an Android phone into your home via your land line. Yes, land lines are still being used apparently as Moto plans to offer up the HS1101 and MBP2000PU to users who desire a more smartphone-esque experience with their home phone.
The two devices that Moto have created appear to be the same except in color. They could potentially run Ice Cream Sandwich on their 3.2-inch 400 x 240 LCD display. Other features include a front facing camera with video chat abilities, stereo speakers, built in answering machine, Wi-Fi, microSD storage, micro USB and access to apps through SlideMe.
I am not too sure about this one, it looks damn ugly to me. And besides, I haven’t had a land line in like 4 years now that smartphones do exactly the same thing and more. Why add another monthly bill to your responsibilities when you already have those features in your pocket? What do you guys think? Does this appeal to you at all?
