LG Optimus Elite will launch on April 22 for $29.99

lg-optimus-eliteThe recently announced LG Optimus Elite appeals to those looking for an affordable, entry-level, and environmentally-friendly Android smartphone. On Earth Day, which is April 22, the Optimus Elite will officially launch for $29.99 on a two year contract following a $50 MIR. In case you prefer to buy the Optimus Elite without a contract, then you may want to wait until it launches on Virgin Mobile shortly after it launches on Sprint.

Most Secure Mobile OS: BlackBerry 7

You don’t often read the words RIM and “good news” in the same sentence any more, unless there’s a “no” or a “not” in between somewhere, but the gang in Waterloo can justify some high-fives following Trend Micro’s latest report on mobile operating system security. According to Trend, BlackBerry 7 is the most secure of the big four OSes.

Pre-Order LG Viper 4g LTE on Sprint

LG Viper 4g LTEIt’s not running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich yet and just the stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but hey that doesn’t mean that the LG Viper 4G LTE is not a worthy phone to get. For one thing, it’s 4G LTE-capable so you are pretty assured of a fast mobile browsing speed courtesy of Sprint 4G network.If those are convincing enough for you, then you better pre-order the LG Viper 4G LTE Android smartphone which just came up for pre-order from Sprint just now.

Boeing Super-Secure Android Smartphone Coming in 2012

As if producing commercial airliners, helicopters, and satellites didn’t keep Boeing busy enough, the company revealed earlier this week that they would soon be branching out into a slightly different market. National Defense Magazine reports that Boeing is currently working on an highly-secure Android-based smartphone of all things, and that it should see a release later this year.

Boeing President Roger Krone declined to go into specifics when it came to the device’s hardware or release date, though he did note the Boeing Phone (the company hasn’t officially decided on a name yet) is nearing the end of its development cycle.

It seems as though the device has been in the works for a while so it’s a safe bet that the spec sheet won’t be the most competitive, and I wouldn’t expect to see anything newer than Froyo or Gingerbread running on it.

If you hadn’t already guessed, this isn’t the sort of device you’ll be able to pick up at your local mom-and-pop cell phone store. In developing their Android phone, Boeing kept an eye on big competitors in the secure communications market, who often price their proprietary devices in the five-figure range. 
Thanks in part to the inclusion of a free (not to mention robust) mobile operating system, Boeing plans to introduce their smartphone at a much lower price, which should please the procurement folks within the Defense Department and other security-conscious operations.

Cost apparently isn’t the only reason that Boeing opted to create an Android device — with Google’s OS accounting for over around 50% of the U.S. smartphone market, users are coming to expect more out of their work-issued devices. As Krone told National Defense Magazine’s Stew Magnuson, the Boeing Phone will give customers “what they are used to seeing [on consumer market smartphones] and give them the functionality from the security perspective.”

Boeing isnt the first company to surprise us with news of a security-conscious mobile device — Dell surprised us late last year when they announced that the their discontinued (and oft-maligned) Dell Streak 5 was the first Android device to be given the official seal of approval by the U.S. Department of Defense. Folks within the organization were apparently fond of the mini-slate’s design, though I have to wonder how well those things actually hold up in the field.

Huawei Ascend G300: Price and Release Date

If your pockets (and wallet) are trembling at the firepower of quad-core monsters like the HTC One X, then Huawei's G300 budget offering might be more up your street.

The 5MP camera-toting Huawei G300 won't be lighting up the spec world with its 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM and Android Gingerbread OS, but the generous 4in display and a promised Ice Cream Sandwich bump should sweeten the deal.

Concept: Blackberry TK Victory

Apart from alleged leaks, we certainly have no idea what RIM’s upcoming Blackberry 10 devices will look like. However this has not stopped Blackberry fans and designers from coming up with concepts of their own, and the latest addition to that pile is from DigitalHomeBoy who has come up with a Blackberry 10 concept dubbed the Blackberry TK Victory.

HTC One X Review

HTC’s new One range - which also includes the HTC One S and HTC One V - aims for the Android heights with slick design, fast processors, greatly enhanced cameras and Beats Audio from the Wonka-esque lab of Dr Dre. The HTC One X is the flagship, sporting a truly spectacular 4.7-inch screen, yet remaining thin, easily pocketable and usable by everyone short of Tiny Hands McGee.
