Orb may have taken its sweet time, but an Android port of its Orb Live streaming app is finally available. By now you probably know the deal: install the Orb Caster app on your PC then fire up Live on your handset and you can start watching Netflix, Hulu (without a Plus account), YouTube, live TV (with the aid of a tuner) and video from other streaming sources like ESPN3 right on your phone over 3G, 4G or WiFi. In fact, Orb will stream just about any media from your PC to your phone, provided you can swallow the $10 price of the app. Orb Live for Android isn’t showing up in the market just yet for us, but we suspect it won’t be much longer now.

Verizon is taking their sweet time announcing the DROID Bionic as they do with just about every phone these days, but we now know that devices have started to make appearances in more than a few stores. With the phone set for September 8, whether they ever make it official or not, our sources (and [...]

The long road to Motorola new powerhouse handset may be coming to an end. The Droid Bionic has been caught in numerous pictures and has been the topic of a vast array of rumors, yet we’ve seen nothing more than an internal screenshot from Verizon confirming its imminent arrival. The guys at This Is My next have stumbled upon a Best Buy flyer listing the Droid Bionic as coming soon while also confirming 4G LTE compatibility, dual-cameras, a dual-core processor, and HDMI mirroring.
While there’s still no release date for this phone, hopefully the newly revamped design in the ad is proof of a production model. After the many delays we saw with the Samsung Droid Charge it comes as no surprise that we’re seeing yet another Verizon flagship device taking its sweet time.
Motorola has sure been taking its sweet time with the Droid Bionic. But hey — better late than busted, right? We got some hands-on time with the LTE handset way back in January, only to get word in April that the device was going back into hiding while the company made “several enhancements.” Rumors about said improvements have popped up in the meantime, and the device has made an appearance on the FCC, but Motorola hasn’t done all that much talking about the upcoming smartphone. Looks like the handset may finally be getting its day in the sun — a newly-leaked Best Buy ad offers up some familiar specs and tough-talking advertising copy, as well as the enticing and vaguely threatening promise that the Bionic is “coming soon.” It’s worth noting that a Droid Bionic accessory page has been live at Best Buy since February, but sadly, not even this ad gets us closer to a cemented release date.

The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has been taking its sweet time on its trip to American shores. You may remember it was the Lenovo LePad, though the tablet has been slightly updated since we first saw it. A display placard from OfficeMac has surfaced, and its details echo those of a recent Buy.com listing for the slate. The IdeaPad K1 runs on Android 3.0, has dual front and rear cameras, a 10.1-inch screen, and 10 hour of battery life. When it hits OfficeMax’s shelves — and that could be soon — it will retail for $499.99. That’s not the cheapest Honeycomb tablet we have seen as of late, but it’s also not the worse.
Adobe’s taken its sweet time with the Honeycomb-flavored version of Flash 10.2 – heck, it wasn’t available at all when the XOOM debuted – but it looks the software is fully cooked and ready to go at last.
The latest update to Flash for Android 3.0 (version number 10.2.157.51) introduces several enhancements, most notably hardware acceleration for 720p video. Browser integration has also been improved, and "important bug fixes and security enhancements" (including a fix to the "critical" vulnerability discovered a few weeks ago) have been made.
The update is now in the Market.

Though it was teased late last year — on the same day that HTC announced its very first Windows Phone 7 devices, in fact — the company’s QWERTY-packing 7 Pro has taken its sweet time to make it to American airwaves; in the process, it’s gone through a name change and picked up the first big platform update from Microsoft. The phone we now know as the Arrive is finally available from Sprint, becoming the first Windows Phone 7 device available on a CDMA network. These days, it’s pretty unusual for an HTC handset — or a handset on any American carrier, really, regardless of manufacturer — to take this long to make it to subscribers’ hands after announcement, but in this case, Sprint’s hands were tied: Microsoft simply didn’t support CDMA initially, which explains why both AT&T and T-Mobile have been enjoying a selection of models from Samsung, LG, Dell, and HTC alike while Sprint and Verizon have been patiently twiddling their thumbs.
The CDMA dry spell’s over, though; the Arrive marks just the first of what should be several Redmond-powered phones over the course of 2011. Is it a fitting first effort? And how does it fare against the GSM models that beat it to market? Read on.
