[Rumor] Samsung to announce Galaxy S 2 devices at MWC?

Despite the “rumor” classification, it’s a pretty safe bet to assume that Samsung will in fact be releasing the next iteration of it’s exceedingly popular Galaxy S line of smart phones at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The upgrade, according to the KoreaHerald, is expected to include the new SuperAMOLED Plus display, Google Android 2.3, and a dual-core SoC to top it all off . No word on whether this will be a dual-core version of Samsung’s sexy Hummingbird platform, or something altogether new. Hit the jump for some quotes directly from Shin Jong-kyun, alpha dog in the Samsung mobile division.

San Francisco now running blazing speeds with Sprint’s WiMAX

I saw a tweet last night that made me especially happy. My friend Myriam Joire a.k.a. tnkgrl from tnkgrl mobile, said Sprint lit up WiMAX in San Francisco and the speeds were insanely fast. My first thought, whoopee! Mobilize 2010 is right around the corner and what better place to test out Sprint’s new speeds than a mobile event. In Myriam’s post she states:

Epic 4G in Potrero Hill and are seeing between 5 and 7 (!) Mbps down and 1.2 Mbps up with 6 full bars of signal indoors. Even after moving 4 blocks away, download speeds stayed between 2 and 4 Mbps, with the signal dropping to 4 bars

Certainly good news to hear and I can’t wait to take this puppy for a test drive next week with the EVO and EPIC 4G devices from Sprint.

Review: Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G in daily use

Sprint’s EVO 4G is the company’s first flagship Android 4G device. This is not the phone for those of you that are looking for a smaller device; you may just want to move along now. But for those of you ready to fork over your hard earned money for an Android handset, the EVO4G comes packed with pretty much everything imaginable: 1Ghz Qualcomm 8650 SnapDragon processor, 4.3″ LCD 480×800, 512MB RAM, 8 MP main camera capturing 720p video with another 1.3 MP front facing camera, 4G and 4G bands, FM Radio, TV out HDMI and a 1500mAh battery.  Arguably, we feel that this is still one of best phones on the market today; hence why Sprint can’t seem to keep them in stock. We tested this phone on a daily basis and I personally used it as my main line for an extensive period of time. Hit the break to read the entire review. Read more of this post

Clearwire testing LTE in Arizona; Sprint to get a multi-mode WiMAX/LTE network?

Sprint’s WiMAX wireless broadband provider Clearwire is beginning to test different type LTE in Phoenix, Arizona. Starting this fall, Clearwire is testing a “multi-mode WiMAX/LTE network” which may prove to be an even faster LTE network that both AT&T and Verizon Wireless plan to roll out.

When the multi-mode testing commences in Phoenix, Clearwire is aligning itself with 4G chip manufacturer Beceem and other partners to figure out the best ways for end users’ mobile devices to take advantage of a mixed WiMAX/LTE network. Clearwires goal in all this is try and “future-proof” it’s network. Also, Clearwire and Sprint can conceivably provide faster data speeds than AT&T or Verizon, because Clearwire and Sprint only use an estimated 30% of the total spectrum licenses available to them in most markets.
