Yet another Samsung Galaxy S II Android 4.0 ICS ROM escaped the Samsung R&D center and walked right into the hand of indie developers and smartphone enthusiasts. Carrying the version number I9100XXLPH, the new ROM has a build date of February 9 and, as you can expect, it is the most stable and functional ICS ROM for the Galaxy S II to date.
The LPH release is only a short step away from feeling like a polished final ROM. It’s smooth enough, it supports all of the phone’s hardware and it gets rid of the nagging “set up update” notification from previous beta releases. Read more »

Let’s be honest here – when talking high-end, dual-core Android smartphones, Pantech surely won’t be on top of your list of brands. The Korean company is mostly known around the world for making highly affordable feature phones, or low-end smartphones, with its home market being an exception of sorts. The aforementioned facts make the AT&T exclusive Pantech Burst quite interesting, as it aims to (cautiously) change the company’s image in the United States, where the market is brimming with options.
Believe it or not, the LTE sporting Pantech Burst has a spec sheet, which can compete with the top dogs in its segment. Read more »

For starters, the U.S. bound phoneblet has gone through the same treatment as its local cousins from the Galaxy S II family, which includes having four touch-sensitive buttons at its front, instead of the three button configuration with a hardware button at the center of the global version. The AT&T Galaxy Note has also ditched the mighty Exynos chipset for Qualcomm-made silicon instead.
Like I mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 chipset with two Scorpion cores, clocked at 1.5GHz. The GPU is Adreno 220. Read more »
