New Nexus 7 Video Features A Curious Little Girl, Yanks Fiercely On Your Heartstrings

2012-08-29_10h45_36Google’s not pulling any punches this time around with its ads for its newest Nexus device. When it’s not physically invading one of the most visited sites on the internet, the Nexus 7 can be found in some adorable videos that play to every one of your sappiest emotions. Take this newest ad, featuring a five-ish-year-old girl reading Curious George, and planning her trip to the moon. (No one tell her just yet, okay?)

The video follows its predecessor entitled Camping in the marketing style of “Look at this! Isn’t this adorable?!” It also demonstrates one of the primary features of the Nexus 7: it’s tossability.

HTC One X available today on Rogers for $170 with a three-year contract

HTC One X available today on Rogers for $170 with a three-year contract

We know Yanks using AT&T’s network will be getting their own flavor of the HTC One X early next month, thus it’s only appropriate for the neighbors up north to get a taste of the same smartphone medicine. Thanks to Rogers, those of you in Canada will be able to get your hands on this Sense 4, ICS-filled handset as soon as today. Rogers says HTC’s One kin is coming as an exclusive to its shop, currently listing it for $169.99 on “select” three-year deals or $624.99 without any attachments. Keep in mind, this specific model’s loaded with the Snapdragon S4 chip, which is slightly different than the One we reviewed a few weeks back. However, if all those cores don’t make a difference to you, then all that’s left to do is head to the source below and pull the trigger.

[Thanks, Sean]

US leads global LTE adoption, rides Verizon’s coattails

There’s no doubt the demand for mobile broadband has skyrocketed worldwide, but the US is leading the LTE charge(s) — plural, ’cause you know, battery life sucks on a… nevermind. According to Pyramid Research, by the end of the year, the United States will claim 47 percent of LTE subscriptions globally. This is thanks in large part to three mobile operators: Verizon, MetroPCS and AT&T have created seven million connections across the country. Combine that with the fact that 71 percent of all LTE handsets will be in the pockets of Yanks by year’s end, and you’ve got a formula for domestic LTE domination. It comes as no surprise that VZW is the largest LTE operator in the US as it’s been making money hand over fist lately — which has allowed it to expand its high speed network at a dizzying pace. We salute you, Big Red, for carrying the banner for the ol’ US of A, blazing the trail littered with dead batteries and over-worked phone chargers.

Bell’s Samsung Galaxy S II looks sexy in white; and it’s coming in time for the holidays

Samsung Galaxy S II in white

I know some of you out there are like me, and are a sucker for a white phone — especially when it's a powerhouse like the Samsung Galaxy S II.  And if you're a Bell Canada subscriber, you'll soon have a chance to get a hold of one.  According to Mobilesyrup, Bell plans to release the above pictured white Galaxy S II "way before the holiday rush", which means November for most of us (or mid July for my dear mother).  Everything else is the same as we already know and love — dual-cores, Super AMOLED, and a nice new breed of Touchwiz, just dressed up in white for those of us that aren't afraid to indulge our shallow side.  Now that users in Canada and the UK can get a white Galaxy S II, I think it's high time a US carrier got involved and offered us yanks one.

Amazon Puts the Asus Eee Pad Slider Up For Pre-Order – Promptly Yanks It Down

This image has no alt text

Asus’ upcoming Eee Pad Slider was up for pre-order for a few short moments via Amazon.com only to be yanked down once word got out. The 10.1-inch Honeycomb slider still doesn’t have any official launch date as of yet but more than one page on Amazon was pre-ordering the device giving more weight to that rumored September launch. According to Amazon, the 16GB version will run you $480 and $580 for the 32GB version. Unlike the older Asus Eee Pad Transformer, this Slider has a keyboard built right in so you wont have to worry about dropping down any extra dollies for a QWERTY attachment. Anyone else excited about this device? Or will you continue to hold out for that rumored quad-core Kal-El tablet later this year?

European Motorola Milestone 2 Getting Android 2.3 Starting in Q4

This image has no alt text

Those of you still rocking the Motorola Milestone 2 (DROID 2 for you Yanks), the folks who have just been acquired by Google has good news for you – Gingerbread is on its way! They’ve confirmed on their Facebook page that the phone will be receiving Android 2.3.

Unfortunately, they didn’t give specifics as to when each country would be receiving the update, but they did say that rollouts would start in early Q4 2011. With such a wide open window, users might even have to wait until early 2012 to get the upgrade, though no one can say for sure at this point.

Let’s hope it’s sometime before Ice Cream Sandwich gets here because we’re sure Milestone 2 owners would be more inclined to go with a new phone equipped with it by then. [Motorola Facebook, thanks Joshua!]

Samsung Now Rolling Out Galaxy S Gingerbread Update In European Countries

This image has no alt text

Samsung yet again has proven that they have no problems updating their phones, contrary to popular belief. The upgrade to Android 2.3 for the Samsung Galaxy S is now rolling out for certain European users. We’re sure this only applies to unbranded devices as carrier-branded devices will have to wait until said carriers decide to push it out. (Though European carriers seem to be much quicker with this stuff than us yanks.) This one’s only going out in Germany and Holland as far as we can tell, but we’re sure those in the UK, France, Spain, and the other tons of European countries out there won’t be left out for too long.
