I got this from a comment in engadget.com. Â Looks like what they are showing in the video there. This could be someone’s imagination +Photoshop. We have to wait till October 11 to know for sure. But this one looks like a cool device.

I think Samsung designers worked really hard to make an impressive and unique design so that Apple won’t take them to court for this one too. Here is the video teaser from Samsung which promises something big at the October 11th Samsung Unpacked Â event.
Android OS updates often reach users months after it’s release, thanks toÂ customizationÂ by OEMs. Indian users usually get to wait even longer than usual.
Android 2.3 for LG Optimus One
I got Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for my LG Optimus one recently after Â a long wait. Even though android 2.2 is capable of an OTA (Over The Air) upgrade, LG decided to push it using the PC Suite. Well, the upgrade went smooth anyway and I was up and running with ginger bread within one hour.
Writing good article with upgrade instructions is no easy job. I am glad that I foundÂ this article fromÂ http://woikr.com. Thank you guys!! Anyone planning to upgrade their LG Optimus One to 2.3, I recommend this article.
This may be the last update to this phone with official support. For future versions, we will probably have to look for custom ROMs from developers. That’s possible because of the open source nature of Android.
We have heard stories of great minds getting inspired from strange things. But here is something Geeky. This April fool, gmail team came out with “GmailÂ Motion” which they said will manage email with gestures, I mean you stand in front of you computer, and show an action, the email gets replied, sent etc.
Here is their video demo, and then comes our hero, he made thing to really work using Microsoft Kinect. AWESOME, I say !!

You’ll need a 64-bit build environment and the Java 1.6 to get the ball rolling, and you shouldn’t expect all your hardware to work. At the moment, only wireless and audio are working — but that’s certainly enough to let you play around with Gingerbread and enjoy the experience a little.
Head on over todeveloper cwhuang’s site [machine translated] for more details, as well as the Git repo link you’ll need to pull down his Gingerbread x86 code.
After writing a lot about Android and Android devices, I finally bought an Android phone. I was waiting for an affordable model here in India. Finally found my love in LG Optimus One. It came with Android 2.2 and I am waiting for the next update to 2.3, Ginger Bread.
A fast moving gadget, and fastest ever in LG’s history.
Price was 13250 when bought ( a few days after it was announced here in India Â I couldn’t wait more ) it might have come done by now .. may be ?
I am in love with the android experience .. may be because I am biased but this is awesome. There are a lot of ways for you to waste time, like say the Angry Bird game ? The Talking Tom app a funny cat that repeats everything you say in a funny tone and there are a lot more.
The performance is good for its price range andÂ processorÂ power. Camera works good in day light, may experience issues taking photos when light is less because there is no flash. The photo in this post was taken with this phone, from Bangalore. ( uploaded to my dropbox folder from phone ) LG is doing some good promotion here.
