Adobe’s EchoSign e-signature service brought over to Android

adobe_echosign_app_icon

EchoSign is an electronic signature service that has been around for a few years, but it was not until today that Adobe released it as an Android app. Users can e-sign, send, and receive documents right from their mobile device with EchoSign. It works with documents from Google Drive, Box, Evernote, and Acrobat with presumably more support on the way. EchoSign is optimized for Android tablets and works with your choice of a finger or stylus to complete the e-signature.

HTC and Sprint announce the mid-range Desire 510

htc_desire_510_whiteHTC and Sprint have announced availability for the Desire 510 on the carrier’s network, and if you’re on any of Sprint’s prepaid or postpaid networks, it’s looking like you’ll be able to get your hands on the device. For Sprint Easy Pay customers, you can own the device for just $9 per month for two years, and Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will carry it with a $99 price tag.

Sprint hasn’t changed the specs of the device at all, so you’ll get Qualcomm’s zippy Snapdragon 400 64-bit CPU, 1 GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 4.7-inch display. At the price point that the 510 is being offered, it’s a hard phone to beat.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with 4G LTE and 32GB of storage up for pre-order

nvidia_shield_tablet_4g_lte_32gb

The SHIELD Tablet is a pretty good device as is. It has a well-sized display, front speakers, a stylus, and the power of an NVIDIA processor. The two things that the SHIELD Tablet has lacked — a 4G LTE connection and additional internal storage — is arriving soon. The SHIELD Tablet with 4G LTE and 32GB of storage is now up for pre-order. It costs an additional $100 over the standard 16GB model, priced at $399.

The SHIELD Tablet with 4G LTE and 32GB of storage is certified to work on AT&T’s network. For activating the SHIELD Tablet at AT&T, the carrier will credit $100 to a customer’s bill. So there is a bit of an incentive to use the tablet with AT&T. Of course, it will also work with T-Mobile’s network as well.

Today, ZTE announced a new device with a massive display that will be available exclusively through T-Mobile. The ZMAX is a mid-range handset with a 5.7-inch display. To keep costs down, the resolution of the display is 1280×720 and the processor inside is the Snapdragon 400. The standout of the ZMAX is its battery life. It can last two days on average thanks to a 3400mAh battery.

Everything else about the ZMAX is reasonable and completely capable. An 8MP camera capable of recording 1080p video is on the back and a 1.6MP camera sits on the front. The internal storage is 16GB and ZTE included a microSD card slot. Also, it ships with Android 4.4 KitKat.

The ZTE ZMAX will arrive online and at T-Mobile stores on September 24 for $10.50 per month for twenty-four months. MetroPCS will follow in carrying the ZMAX later this year.
