Android Gingerbread - 3D Cam, Large Screen - It is not HTC EVO 3D

What runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, packs 3D cameras with 720p recording along with a monster-sized display? It is not the HTC EVO 3D or even the LG Optimus 3D as there is a new cat around.

Sharp Aquos SH-12C joins HTC EVO 3D & LG Optimus 3D

The Sharp Aquos SH-12C may be the latest 3D capable Android smartphone headed towards the market and packs some decent specs by using it. We're referring to single.4GHz Qualcomm processor, 4.2-inch qHD display (540x960) that is slightly small compared to the Sprint HTC EVO 3D, capability to record 3D video at 720p along with a 8-megapixel camera (HTC EVO 3D boasts 5-megapixel 3D shots). All of this topped served by the most recent Android Gingerbread (2.3) OS and you've got a smartphone that's certain to make heads turn.

No word yet on whether or not this will be making its way to the united states however it will launch in Japan on May 20. In the end would like to view it within the united states, the term isn't out yet about the benefit of 3D camera on smartphones in america at this time. More about this since it develops.

The HTC "Thunderbolt" and "EVO 4G" finally getting Android Gingerbread update?

HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 4G smartphones might get upgraded towards the Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” operating-system by no later compared to end of June, based on a TalkAndroid reader who submitted a note allegedly from an HTC representative.

Despite bountiful company resources, both device manufacturers like HTC and wireless carriers happen to be dragging their feet with regards to upgrading their devices towards the latest OS, that has been readily available for nearly 6 months.

Meanwhile, the hacker community has were able to push unofficial Gingerbread upgrades towards the most of smartphone's running older versions of Android natively. The only real device that officially runs Gingerbread right now is Samsung’s Nexus S, that was produced in partnership with Google to operate a pure version from the OS with no carrier alterations.

Justifiably, Android phone owners are pissed off how the updates aren’t coming any faster.

Unlike older versions from the iPhone, most Android phones have sufficient hardware requirements to aid timely OS updates. However, upgrading to Gingerbread isn’t great for tha harsh truth of either the carriers or hardware manufacturers, who does rather you purchase newer devices featuring Gingerbread rather than obtaining the update free of charge.
