    When Sony announced the water-resistant Xperia Go at the end of May we have been told that the phone will reach the US market under the Xperia Advance moniker. It is now available in yellow, white, and black and it goes for $246.76 after a discount from $349.99, unlocked. As a reminder, the specs are rather modest: there's a dual-core 1GHz processor with a 512MB of RAM, a five-megapixel main camera, 3.5-inch HVGA display powered by Sony’s BRAVIA engine, 8GB of external storage, with expansion available via microSD, and is powered by a 1350mAh battery. Unfortunately, the huge turn-off ...

    Now that the iPhone 5 fever (have you caught it?) is starting to die down a little, there's plenty of other smartphone news to check out. One of the more low-key Androids to be announced so far this month is Samsung's Galaxy S Relay 4G, a QWERTY slider for T-Mobile. The carrier formally confirmed the phone last week, but it turns out that one of its key specs was given incorrectly. We'd been following this guy for a while, starting back when it was known as the Galaxy S Blaze Q. With a 720p screen and 1.5GHz dual-core SoC, it sounded like a pretty decent mid-range device, especially if ...

    As you can clearly see in the image above, the phone outlined on the left is exactly the phone pictured on the right, which means that the LG VS950 is indeed the LG Optimus VU -- or a variant of some sort. On this exact same note we can draw the conclusion that the LG VS950, aka LG Optimus VU, is heading to Verizon, at least according to FCC. There's no mention of the "Optimus VU" moniker though, but the filing reveals that the VS950 is packing NFC and LTE band 13 plus GSM 850/1900MHz compatibility. LG introduced its 4:3 aspect ratio phablet with the occasion of this year's MWC and the ...

    It's been quite some time since Sony introduced the Xperia Ion for AT&T at the beginning of the year at CES. However, six months later, the phone is available for purchase online at the carrier, going for $99.99 with a two-year contract (or $449.00 outright). It's been so long since its introduction that you might need to refresh your memory with our hands-on video. As far as specs are concerned, the Xperia Ion packs a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.6-inch 720p display, and a twelve-megapixel camera, in addition to LTE compatibility on AT&T. The downside -- of running ...

    Lenovo was the first to announce an Intel Medfield-Based Android smartphone at this year's CES in January but the Lava Xolo X900 was the first Medfield-based device to reach a market. However, Lenovo is still on track with its LePhone K800 plans as it has been just launched in China, as promised for the end of May. The phone packs a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.6GHz Intel processor, 1GB of RAM and an eight-megapixel main camera. The Intel chip inside the phone is the Z2460, formerly referred to as the “Medfield”, aided by the Intel XMM 6260 platform chip in order to offer support for HSPA+ ...

    The LG Optimus Elite is available on Virgin Mobile since Wednesday for $149.99 and, while its specs aren't of the high-end kind, the phone packs Near Field Communications (NFC), which is a first for Virgin Mobile. As such, the carrier is trying to push both this hardware feature and Google Wallet by throwing in some bonuses. If you purchase and activate an LG Optimus Elite on Virgin Mobile from May 18 to July 18, 2012, you can get $25 credit on your Google Wallet account. You have to activate your Google Wallet and Google Wallet prepaid card within a week of activating the Optimus ...
