Тhe handsets will probably hit the shelves with carrier-specific names and neither of them seems like something to write home about, at least in terms of hardware specifications. They are expected to roll out with affordable price tags. (source: CNET)

  • Facebook version 1.2 for Android is now released. The most significant novelty feature is the option to browse messages directly from within the application, meaning people will no longer have to use the web browser to do that. (source: Android and Me)

  • Samsung plans to release the S5230, a handset inspired by the World Soccer Championship. The version of the device aimed at eager football fans is intended for Germany, but there is still no information on the novelties features it will bring. (source: Handcellphone)
