Major update coming to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on August 3rd

Samsung will be releasing their new TouchWiz for tablets next week Wednesday, August 3rd, and they must be proud of it because they are going to host an event in New York City. They will do a full demonstration and actually sideload the update on to your Tab.

The general public will be able to join in on the festivities from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Keep in mind that if you choose this method, the update will wipe your data. If you can’t make it to event, don’t worry, because the over-the-air update (OTA) will happen shortly after. The good news is that the OTA update will not wipe your data.

HTC To Hold Free Event In London On April 12th

Looks like HTC is throwing a block party, and y’all are all invited.  Well, if you’re in the London area anyway.  HTC made the announcement for the free event via their Facebook page, “like”!  It seems as though the company wants to make a few announcements and thank all of those responsible for helping them become so successful.  Slated prior to the event is a press release by HTC which could be the moment we see first light on the HTC Pyramid/Sensation device we’ve been drooling over for a while now.  So, if you’re in the London, UK area get on in there and enjoy the free food, drinks and DJ.  In addition, don’t forget to pay special attention as HTC has promised to “have some exiting news to share with you”.  Just to reiterate, the event is on April 12th from 7:30pm to 11pm.  So hurry up and RSVP via the source link, because it’s a first come first served basis.

HTC To Reaveal “What’s Next” On April 12th, You Going?

It looks like HTC is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to mobile technology.  After making a huge presence at Mobile World Congress and CTIA, they’ve now begun sending invites to the press in Europe enticing them to come “see what’s next”.  The event will be held on April 12th at 1:30 pm (GMT) in London.  No one knows for sure what HTC has hidden up their sleeves, but the anticipation is killing us.  Will we see the HTC Evo 3D launching on Sprint in the US?  Maybe.  We saw HTC unveil most of their arsenal at MWC and CTIA a couple of weeks ago.  As a T-Mobile customer, I’m hoping they’ll mention something about the HTC Pyramid, personally.  But who knows, maybe it will be a brand spanking new device to which man’s eyes have never gazed upon.  One thing is for sure, don’t forget to check back in with Talk Android on the 12th of April, because we’ll be covering the event closely.  Let us know what you’re hoping is revealed at the event in the comments below.

Google I/O 2011 sold out in 59 minutes


Google has an event called I/O each year since 2008 for Google to share with developer communities what it’s plans and strategies are for Google’s products over the next year. In 2009, the I/O event sold out in 90 days, in 2010 it sold out in 10 days. This years’ event sold out in 59 minutes at $450 a seat! While it’s great to be there, the event will also be streamed live on Google’s youtube page for all who couldn’t attend as well.

We expect to hear about Android, and how Google plans to blend Android Gingerbread into Honeycomb for smartphones. We’ll hear more about Chrome OS for netbooks as it’s supposed to launch this summer, and no doubt we’ll hear about Google TV, and how they plan to get rid…*cough* keep it alive after what many call a “failed” launch.

The event takes place May 10-11 2011 in San Francisco. Stay tuned!

Google’s Honeycomb Event Kicks Off Today, Watch It Live!

As we mentioned a few days ago, our inbox was graced with an invite from Google to attend their headquarters in Mountain View for an “in depth” look at Honeycomb.  And though we’ve seen a bit of the new OS at CES, we’re looking forward to grabbing a bigger tidbit from the event.  Well, that day is here and we’re all underway.  If you’re not able to attend the event in person, Google will be streaming the event live at 1pm eastern on the search giant’s YouTube page.  There’s also a big chance that we’ll hear more on the new online Android Market and music services.  Enjoy!

Google Announces Android Event For February 2nd, Touts An In Depth Look At Honeycomb And More

Is there anything better than waking up to your inbox and receiving some good news?  Yeah, how about an inbox with an email from Google inviting you to an Android event at the Googleplex in Mountain View?  That’s right, Google has stated on Feb 2nd, they will be holding an event to discuss “an in-depth look at Honeycomb, Android ecosystem news and hands-on demos”.  We can’t help but wonder if Google has something new in store for us.  It’s not like Google to just hold an event for a mere summary of Honeycomb.  Maybe we’ll hear some discussion on all of these 2.4 sightings or whether or not Honeycomb will be configured to operate on a smartphone?  We can hope can’t we?  Yes we can, and shall.  In any event, stay tuned to Talk Android because we’ll be covering the event and reporting back to you first hand.

Google has also provided a way for you to stream the event live, for those of us who sadly, can’t make the event.  What do you want to see come out of all of this ?   Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Sprint Event Feb 7th – Android related


Sprint is holding an invite-only event on February 7th 2011, and to our insight, some Android specific sites received an invite. That could only mean the event has something to do with Android devices in some way, shape, or form. Why exactly David Blaine is going to be there…we can only speculate for now. So I’ll speculate, Mr.Blaine is going to make any Apple iPhone news vanish from all internet sites as we gaze at his hands while he shows us the card we were thinking of… Bam!
