Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 announced on T-Mobile Germany

T-Mobile Germany just announced that they are going to launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 in April. Unfortunately no price (or data plan) was given today. As you probably already know the X10 is Sony Ericsson’s first Android (1.6) smartphone and is powered by a Qualcomm SnapDragon Chipset clocked at 1Ghz (and also has a pretty good 8Mpix camera). Hopefully the handset will come out on time and won’t be delayed…

More confirmation that all HTC HD2s have 576Mb of Ram

As I’ve reported a couple days ago it seems all HTC HD2‘s being sold have 576Mb of Ram and not 448MB like it’s officially reported by HTC. The trick is to flash the device with a combination of the leaked 2.02 test Rom and Radio Rom. For more info and proof you can head over to this XDA thread where many user have been testing this and posting confirmations that it indeed true.

Dual Booting Android on a Windows Mobile Smartphone

As I’ve reported earlier, you can now run Android 2.X on your Windows Mobile smartphone with a little tweaking. Well, here’s new and easy way to run Android on your Windows Mobile device; Gen.Y DualBOOT.
What Gen.Y DualBOOT does is let you dual boot your handset in either Windows Mobile or Android. What you have to do first is get Android and put it on your memory card. Then grab Gen.Y DUALBOOTand install it. You will then be presented with a new dual boot menu once you have rebooted your phone. Here’s a video demo done by Brandon at Pocketnow:

Can’t wait to see this work on the HTC HD2 (so far it’s only compatible with previous HTC handsets like the Diamond2/TP2 etc..)
