  • Yet another set of XPERIA X2 live images has leaked (the WM-powered one). This time, we have a few close-up photos and  some that compare the smartphone with its predecessor, the X1. As the source points out, frequent image leaks often mean the official announcement isn’t too far, so stay tuned! (source: BGR)


  • Sprint seems to be planning an event on August 6. According to a leaked image, Sprint CEO, Dan Hesse, is to reveal some details regarding the carrier’s green initiatives, as well as make “several important announcements”. Can’t wait! (source: MobileCrunch)


  • The upstream speed of iPhone 3GS is limited to 384kbps. At least, that’s what Macworld informs of. Although AT&T has planned to upgrade its network, boosting upstream speeds to somewhere between 500kbps and 800kbps, the hardware of the 3GS seems to be limited at just 384kbps, thus it would not take full advantage of the carrier’s network.
