FCC Approved HTC Thunderbolt Teardown | Reveals Expected

It has been a month or so since the release of HTC Thunderbolt LTE, yet there was no teardown report of this awesome smartphone. We normally expect iFixit team to release such teardowns but this  time FCC released some images of HTC Thunderbolt teardown. Though the images are not as good as a iFixit release, still these images give us a fair bit of idea how such a thin and "not so big" device manages to pack such power-packed features. The most interesting aspect of this teardown is to see the placement of  EVDO and LTE antennas, among other things. In of of the pictures we can clearly see a Qualcomm MDM9600 processor. One can also see iNAND flash memory by Sandisk and Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Pro | Specifications | Price in India

Samsung has launched , Galaxy Pro, a new QWERTY keypad smart phone. This smart phone is not in the same line as galaxy s phones, which are complete touch screen. Samsung Galaxy Pro will have its front divided in two halves, upper part being a touch screen (not multi touch though ) and lower part will have a full QWERTY keyboard. This is more like a blackberry phone, probably Samsung is aiming at the blackberry segment itself. Specification wise it beats (or at least stands equal) any Blackberry phone,  a touch screen gives it an edge over similarly priced Blackberry phone which have only a trackball for navigation.

It was expected,but it will happen so soon was not expected.A  group of hackers (undisclosed) has reported that they have successfully burnt Android 2.3,aka Gingerbread, on iPhone 3G with the help of  already available OpeniBoot. If you have been following alternative OS scene for iPhones , you must already be familiar with the news of hackers using OpeniBoot  for running linux and Android 2.2 (Froyo) on iPhones. Some news sources are reporting that it was Nick Pack and few other hackers who ported Gingerbread on iPhone . Here is the video that was released on youtube showing an iPhone running on Gingerbread , Android 2.3.
While watching this YouTube posting, it is evident that this Android 2.3 port on iPhone is running pretty slow, also it is not shown if one can make calls or not. This is just the first attempt so we should remain patient for some more time to see all the must have features running with Gingerbread burnt iPhone.
