The future of the Android operating platform looks promising. Here is a list of the top 10 forthcoming Android devices:
Motorola Droid Bionic: A successor to Droid Incredible, the device will have a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H dual-core processor and a LTE (Long Term Evaluation) connectivity. The new Bionic is particularly built for speed and will come with an 8 mega-pixel camera. The release date is not fixed, but is expected before the end of 2011.
Toshiba Thrive: The tablet’s specialty will be full-size USB port. It will also have a SD card slot and a HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port and will also consist of a dual-core processor. The release date of the device is rumored to be around July.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (LTE): Although the Wi-fi only Galaxy Tab is set for June 17th release, the LTE version will be debuting sometime this summer. The device is expected to give Apple iPad 2 a tough competition. Verizon’s fast LTE network will make web browsing easier and faster than before.
Motorola Photon 4G: This will be the company’s first WiMAX-capable phone. The phone will have a dual-core processor like Atrix on AT&T. The phone will run on an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform. The device can also be connected to a TV to play games on a larger screen.
Asus Padfone: Asus has made it possible to connect your smartphone to the tablet. Once the phone is mounted beside the device, all the phone’s features can be accessed from the tablet.
Motorola Xoom 2: Rumors say that the tablet will have a Tegra 3 quad-core processor which will make it the most powerful and efficient tablet on the market. No solid news is available at the moment about the device but will be a worthy successor to the company’s 10.1-inch tablet.
Nexus 3: Nothing much is available about this mythical device as of now, but is expected sometime in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Nexus 3 will become one of the first phones to have the Ice Cream Sandwich version of the Android operating system. The OS is expected to link the gap between Android tablets and Android handsets. The phone is expected to bring radical changes to the Android OS platform.
HTC EVO 3D: As per the name suggests, the phone will have a 3D display and will capture 3D images. The phone is expected to have an interesting impact on the market. Exposure to long-term 3D exposure, however, can be a source of prolonged headaches.
Samsung Galaxy S II: Europe may get to this one early while the US will have to wait for the device and its carrier. The device will boast a Super AMOLED Plus Display and a capacitive touchscreen, and will be dual-core powered. This phone promises to be a joy to behold.
Motorola Droid 3: The earliest Motorola Droid was the first in the new generation of Android devices in 2009. An improved keyboard and a high-resolution qHD display (a display resolution of 960 pixels by 540 pixels arranged in a 16:9 aspect ratio. This display is one-quarter of a full HD 1080p frame and is three-quarters of a 720p frame) with a dual-core processor is expected.
