A quick check today revealed that the same comment was deleted. This eventually leads to a possibility that Android 2.2 Froyo might be available to the HTC Legend along its other Android siblings launched this year. We find no other reason for retraction except that it is definitely coming.
It is too early to tell right now but we also heard some rumours that HTC Desire might be getting the Android 2.2 Froyo next week, 23rd of June. When that happens, most likely other HTC models would be getting it shortly after that.

MacRumors updates us that the iPhone 4 will rock 512MB of RAM. What’s interesting is, since the launch of the original iPhone, Apple had never officially mentioned or advertised the RAM of any of the iPhones it has released.
If you must know, the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G came with a pretty small 128MB of RAM. While the iPhone 3GS came with 256MB of RAM, which funnily enough, is the same amount you get in the iPad.
So there will be some bad news for those using the iPhone 3G, you won’t be getting multi-tasking when iOS4 is available for download. For those using the 3GS, you can forget about video editing on the fly with iMovie.
Anyone who’s running the iPhone 3GS can agree that the user experience is pretty slick even when compared to some of the more powerful Android devices in the market like the HTC Desire and Nexus One. You can imagine how blazing fast the iPhone 4 will be.
We’re still trying to solve the mystery of the iPhone 4 found in Vietnam, and now just a few weeks away from the iPhone is slated make its appearance in stores across the US, France, Germany, UK and Japan, we’re presented once again with an iPhone appearance in the wild.
More mysterious, this latest sighting took place in the Czech Republic – a country that’s not on the iPhone 4 release list! How the hell did it get there!
While we work on figuring that out, you’ll be happy to know that the person who posted the iPhone 4 snaps mentioned that he played games, surfed the Internet, watched YouTube and used Google Maps for about an hour and saw the iPhone 4 battery dropped a paltry 10%. That’s pretty awesome stuff right there.
Accompaying the sighting are a few real-world snaps and vids taken using iPhone 4 camera. The quality of the sample snaps and video recording is a long way away from the sample snaps that Apple had uploaded on its website. It’s rather underwhelming, which is kindda worrying.
Head on over to the jump so see the pics and vids for yourself. Tell us what you think.
We can’t wait to get our hands on the iPhone 4. We can’t wait to see for ourselves how the Retina Display looks like and find out what the hubbub is all about with the FaceTime video call. Apple is pretty confident that it’s going to change the way we communicate with our mobile phones – again.
Alas, it’s going to be at least another month before we can even have the option to purchase the iPhone 4 officially here, so in the meantime we’ll just have to make do with demo videos and pictures of the iPhone 4.
This one is by far the most intriguing to date it is also one of the funniest. There’s even mention in there about how they wanted to put three cameras in the new iPhone. Count it, THREE!
Head on over to after the jump to see what we’re talking about. It will blow your mind away – again.
New in the ‘White’ device bandwagon is the new HTC EVO 4G. According to Engadget the white EVO 4G is exclusive to Best Buy for now and it is not available at Sprint stores yet.
Pre-orders start today with a $50 deposit while the official release is on 11th July 2010. The price of the white HTC EVO 4G is at $199 over a 2 year contract.
While Blackberry 9700 & the new iPhone 4 offers full ‘White’ both front and back, the HTC Evo 4G only features a change of its back plate like the current iPhone 3Gs. You could probably make yours “white” by changing its back plate from 3rd party sources.

Nokia’s Executive VP for markets, Anssi Vanjoki has announced that all Nokia smartphones will be NFC ready 2011 onwards. This is a huge commitment by the manufacturer but they didn’t mention which upcoming model will start carrying the feature.
According to the report, Nokia says that the NFC ready devices will support various business models for NFC, including SWP (Single Wire Protocol), Secured Elements (special microSD) and embeded secured element.
Maxis is the first and only operator in Malaysia to introduce NFC Service. Branded Maxis FastTap, the service integrates with Touch n Go and Visa Wave. The only model they have for this is the Nokia 6212. So far in Malaysia it didn’t really kicked off in a big way which we feel is partly blamed on the lack of choices. How many people would skip their smartphone purchase for a simple candy bar phone for the sake of NFC?
If Nokia really does embed NFC capabilities on all future smartphones, we might be able to see the rise of NFC users in Malaysia and the rest of the world. You can’t deny that Nokia does have a fair share of users particularly from the lower-middle income as well as youth groups. Imagine college kids being able to pay for LRT or even fast foods from your phone. The application for NFC is endless but definitely need more choice of devices.
