After being delayed for a couple of times, Rogers said last month that the Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE will be pushed out in late February. It looks like the carrier is going to deliver on its word this time around.
In fact, the Jelly Bean firmware is reportedly already on its way to the Galaxy S2 LTE. Rogers hasn’t posted the information on its website yet, but some users have reported that the software package is available to download and install via Kies. We’re not sure for now whether it’ll be available via OTA as well.
What owners can look forward to seeing on...

Any smartphone and tablet company that thinks it can ignore China is wrong! Traditionally, due to its comparative wealth and size, the USA has been the key market for smartphones and tablets. However new data is showing that as of February 2013, China has more active Android and iOS smartphone and tablet users than the USA.
Go back two years and the situation was like this. The USA had around 60 million active Android and iOS users while China had only a couple of million (very small for such a very large country). However, China has seen tremendous growth and by January 2012 it had reached around 60 million users. But the USA also grew and in the same twelve months, from January 2011...

Some things look better in white, but whether or not this applies to the Xiaomi Mi2 – here’s a pic of the phone donning a new white outfit to speak for itself.
If you’re wondering what’s so special about the leaked picture below, this is the first time we see the Mi2 with a white faceplate. While the quad-core phone comes in a variety of colorful shades, white included, they all have a black front frame.

Not that Xiaomi is having any problem...

We’re about a week away from Mobile World Congress, and Samsung has thus far announced five new devices. The first forth are not even worth talking about, the REX feature phones that look like Galaxy phones, but the fifth one is slightly more interesting. It’s basically the Galaxy Camera we all know and love, except that it doesn’t have a SIM card slot. In other words, it’s a...

What you’re looking at below is a press photo of the new HTC One that’s going to be announced in roughly 12 hours. In case you’ve been living a rock, the HTC One will be HTC’s premier Android flagship phone for the first half of 2013. It’s set to have a 4.7 inch 1080p display, quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and allegedly a teeny tiny 2,300 mAh battery....

Sony launched its two budget models, the Xperia E and Xperia E Dual, last December in the UK. While the dual model has gone on sale in the country for a few weeks, the E is still nowhere to be seen, even though it was initially expected to hit stores in February.
The latest we hear of its availability is that the Sony Xperia E will only be up for grabs starting in March.
You should be able to get...

When people think Samsung, they think Android, but that would be doing the company a disservice. Samsung has released a handful of devices running Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, but more importantly they’re also working on a brand new operating system with Intel called Tizen. In case you haven’t heard of Tizen, it used to be called MeeGo back when Nokia was working on it a few years ago. But then Nokia gave up on the project, so Samsung took over their work and renamed the OS.

With that out of the way, let’s get to today’s news: The Tizen 2.0 SDK is out, and...

People are having less kids today than they were just a couple of decades ago. Put another way, countries are getting older. Now there’s nothing wrong with old people, one should respect their elders, but today’s gadgets are definitely not meant for them. There are way too many buttons to push, interfaces are confusing, and there’s so much wrong that it kind of makes you feel sad to watch someone old try to use something like the Galaxy S3.
Enter the Raku Raku F–12D, a smartphone made by Fujitsu for the Japanese market. It has an Android skin that can best be described as...

It’s that time of year again when phone makers roll out their latest and finest Android offerings. If you’re on team Samsung, you probably have the Galaxy S4 — confirmed to be unveiled on March 14 – on the top of your wish list.
For those who don’t mind sporting last year’s flagship device, such as the Galaxy Note 2, here’s an offer that might interest you.
It was just a few days ago that we told you about...

This week is episode number 52 of the Android Authority On Air show. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Our very first episode took place a year ago, recapping Mobile World Congress 2012. In fact, we did very first Hangout On Air show while they were still in beta on Google+, they weren’t available to everyone. My oh my, how far we’ve come.
We’ve had various show guests from around the Android community such as the ROM team from MIUI.us, Team EOS, and recently Paranoid...
