Samsung appears to be getting very close to releasing the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone. A strong indicator that this is close to happening is the availability of the manual for the Galaxy Note 4 that has been updated to include screenshots and information referring to Android Lollipop.
According to a leaked AT&T manual, LG’s G Vista phone will be headed to the carrier, alongside Verizon.
In the picture above, which was taken from the manual, you can clearly see AT&T’s logo right on the back of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy S 5 is ready to start jumping in consumers’ hands starting next week. Some of those buyers will no doubt want to learn all they can about how to use their new smartphone, especially some features like the S Health app, the Download Booster, or the Ultra Power Saving Mode, before they get the device so they can hit the ground running. If you happen to be one of those people, you are in luck as the manual for the Galaxy S 5 is available for download from the Samsung web site. Even if you are not planning to buy a Galaxy S 5, the manual may be worth a quick scan just to get an idea of what features Samsung is rolling out and how they operate.

It’s clear that Google is really pushing hard to make their Nexus 7 tablet a success with consumers.

Already got yourself the new Atrix 2? Feeling a little bit superuser-ish? Your in luck then! XDA forum member, jimmy273, has posted some instructions on how to root the new Motorola device. Jimmy273, being the modest man he is, doesn’t take full credit for this feat and passes some credentials on to p3droid for creating this method. All Jim did was use p3droid’s Bionic root method and tried it on his Atrix 2 and had success.
To see all the gritty details hit the source link below. There you will find full instructions and files needed to gain superuser status. Be sure to read the instructions thoroughly and check out what other forum members had to say. Good luck and happy rooting!

The Samsung Stratosphere will be hitting Verizon this week on October 13th. In case you missed the specs on this single-core 4G slider, you can catch them right here or in the manual linked below. There is no pricing listed for this device, but I’d expect it to fall into the $150 range on a 2-year contract. Hit up the break for a link to the manual and a shot of the device from all angles. Again, there is always room for a mid-level slider out there. Anyone want one?
If you are planning on picking up a Droid Incredible 2 from Verizon Wireless at the end of the month, then you might want to download the leaked user-manual. Actually I am not sure you will learn all that much, but if you are not familiar with Sense, the manual will give you some insight. The Incredible 2 is coming with Sense 2.1, which is a step up from the Thunderbolt, which is at Sense 2.0. Hit the source link to download the manual.
The Motorola Xoom is almost out, and how excited are we getting?! I’d have to say pretty darn excited! With the price of $800, the Xoom began showing up at Verizon stores, among others with promo materials and goodies to assist in the retail launch. The units to hit Verizon thus far look to be dummy devices, but still, that makes it that much more real.
Pricing for the tablet should still be around the $800 range we saw at Best Buy, and had heard about Motorola’s CEO justifications of that pricing, but we’ll really just have to wait and see what it gets listed as the day of sale. That sale should be Feb. 24th.
If you’re going to grab one on the 24th, or there after right away, why not get familiar with how to use it before hand. You can now because the Xoom user guide made its way online already, just before launch. You can grab a copy of it here if you want to get a head start.

Nobody likes bing left out, that’s a fact. Remember little Susie’s birthday party in 4th grade that she didn’t invite you to because you put worms in her lunchbox? No? Maybe that was just me then…
Anyway, thanks to the magic of the internet, you Motorola Backflip users don’t have to be left out of the upgrade party to 2.1, as we’ve got the scoop on how to get it and handle the update yourself. Hit the break to check out the instructions, and simultaneously show Motorola that you don’t appreciate the lack of an invite.
OoOoO, what do we have here? A stock-Android device running on the Sprint network? Well isn’t this interesting. Currently if you’re a big yellow subscriber (if Verizon is big red, then I hereby declare Sprint Big Yellow) then your only choices for Android are either HTC Sense on the HTC EVO 4G or TouchWiz3.0 on the Epic 4G. (Well you can get stock Android on the Samsung Intercept also, but let’s not include that one)
Anyway, the user guide to the Samsung Transform can now be downloaded directly from Sprint. One of the new features on the upcoming Transform are ID Packs. ID packs are similar to device packs that contain features such as icons, wallpapers, menus and apps. These packs can be customized for different uses and can be purchased and downloaded directly from the Sprint Store. They’re installed using an app called Sprint ID and you can install and switch between as many ID Packs as you’d like (without losing any apps).
Well that feature definitely has me intrigued. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments
