HTC Hero Euro-spec and Android 2.1 (Eclair) get some video action.
Android 2.1 is one of the most anticipated Android updates yet. For HTC Hero users even more so as they’re currently stuck at the now old as dirt 1.5/Cupcake edition making 2.1 all the more sweeter. The video above shows an HTC Hero Euro-model packing Android 2.1 w/ Sense UI. It looks hot and performs well. There’s only a few areas where some lag is noticeable. Though at this point in the game, lag shouldn’t be non-existent. But I’ll take what I can get for now. Watch the vid and leave your thoughts in the box inside. Just in case: There’s a heavy amount of techno music. I don’t mind it and actually find it catchy. Others will find it causes them to vomit organs. To each his own…

Get your salt shakers folks. You’ll need them yet again as this is for now a “what if” type of question. It’s highly suspected that the Android 2.0.1 update will drop on December 11th just a few days from now. Verizon themselves mentioned that the Droid would receive such an update “before [...]
For whatever reason, Nokia phones have failed to really catch on here in the states. I know we’ve all seen those junk freebie Nokia’s that just about every carrier has, using them to inflate their bottom line. But the real meat is that of smartphones. Here in the states and even North [...]
Boy how I love a freshly leaked spec sheet for lusted after gadgets. Today’s gadget-o-love spec sheet pays homage to the Sony Xperia X10. While the hardware itself and overall skin of the UI are simply gorgeous, the Android 1.6 underpinnings aren’t exactly the first choice for most. Android 2.0 or even [...]
With the rest of the civilized world embracing Android at increasing paces, it only makes sense for Nextel to get in on the game at some point. With a network that isn’t exactly known for it’s speed and a handset lineup that always leaves most wanting more, hearing of a legitimate Android offering on [...]
Thought that the mere news of a second generation HTC Hero coming at MWC was the only Hero 2 news you’d get today? Think again. The code below is just a smidgen of the mountain of code that comprises the HTC Espresso’s firmware. Even if you don’t know any type of code [...]
I’ve you’ve been in the Android game you know that even with the Droid’s new higher spec’d, chiseled body, the HTC Hero still holds a firm grasp on many a geek’s hearts. When it was released earlier this year, it was by far the nicest and best performing Android device. But as is [...]
Cancelling your cellphone contract use to come with a hefty fee of anywhere from $175 up to $200+. The carriers justified this fee by highlighting how customers buying subsidized phones and then canceling their contracts was killing their checkbooks. Then a revelation happened last year — pro-rated cancellation fees starting at the same [...]
Not too long ago , — say a month — I was trying to decide to I want slightly outdated Android 1.5 and an HTC device or new hotness with 2.0 and the Droid. I chose the Droid. Many others however went the more economical and picked up the cheaper Eris. and boy did [...]
That nifty Android device that pranced around here yesterday is nothing but a poser. Fake. Impostor. The device itself was pretty sleek looking. Sadly it just won’t be. Sadness is overwhelming at this point I’m sure. Don’t feel too bad. In another month we’ll find some other gadget [...]
In what can be called a small letdown, that Verizon/Droid/Eris BOGO offer that floated out of GS late yesterday was a tad premature. Verizon is having a BOGO sale for Droids. There’s just one small catch: it is not the Moto Droid but the Droid Eris. (I can already see how this [...]
