Sprint-Logo1-300x360

  Sprint might not be ready to give up the release date of the HTC EVO 3D, but they don’t mind teasing us with the handset and a “coming soon” tag. An email has been sent out to stir up even more anticipation for the glasses-free #D smartphone. Front and center is the 3D gaming capabilities (you’ll see Spider-Man Total Mayhem comes preloaded), which should offer a great experience on the 4.3-inch qHD display, but might do a number on battery life. Did we mention there still is no … [Read more...]

Well, lookie here… Thanks to one of my Twitter followers, I came across this little gem over on the XDA forums. Looks like the user ranmasaotome510 has managed to stumble upon an internal email from Radio Shack listing the Evo 3D with a “rough launch date” of June 4th. Could it be true? Until now, we’ve seen nothing but the occasional print ad in men’s magazines and HTC has been tight lipped on any kind of expected launch date. This is the first leak we’ve seen that finally gives … [Read more...]

The Motorola Droid X2 was rumored to be hitting shelves today along with the LG Revolution, but the day is winding down and no word has come in from Verizon. It seems the Samsung Droid Charge delay had some impact on the push back of the X2, with Verizon’s May lineup looking pretty crowded. Nevertheless, dummy units have started arriving at Costco stores in preparation for the eventual launch. The Droid X2 is set to be Verizon’s first dual-core Android handset, though it leaves out a 4G LTE … [Read more...]

bf7SS-GalaxyS2

I can’t tell you how many news articles I’ve read of new release dates for Samsung’s Galaxy S II. First its been delayed, then its not, then it came out last week, then it didn’t. Its enough to drive someone mad! It reminds me of this song  my sister used to play, “First you’re hot then you’re cold. Yes then you’re no.” Well, apparently we’ve finally gotten the official word from Samsung that they are planning to launch their newest flagship phone May 1st. You may now … [Read more...]

Well, well, well. What’s this we’re hearing about an April 20th launch date for the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G T-Mobile already gave us a good look at pricing, but that wasn’t enough for RadioShack – the retailer took to twitter to confirm earlier suspicions of ours.

xoom-wifi-539

The Motorola XOOM WiFi is slated to launch at major retailers this Sunday, but one lucky reader of Droid-Life’s got his in the mail already. He pre-ordered his from Staples but did it over the phone instead of at the retailer’s website. This sometimes happens when you preorder devices with telecoms over the phone, too. We’re really just reporting this story to let you folks know how jealous we are. Oh, and we want to know if any of you end up getting yours a bit early, too. Let us know … [Read more...]
