A new Motorola Android phone has surfaced and we can agree that this is a work of art. The Droid Fighter as it is being called is a 4.6 inch beast.

Reports are surfacing that the Verizon bound Droid Fighter will feature a HD Display and will run on Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich. Something that has been stressed by Motorola has been improved battery life for its upcoming devices. This is pure speculation but we could see a similar battery to that of the Droid RAZR MAXX. We can expect for an official announcement from both Verizon and Motorola in the coming weeks.

Rogers Canada is now accepting preorders for the Lumia 900.  Customers who take advantage of the preorder are entered for a chance to win a private screening of The Dark Knight Rises and a special edition Dark Knight Lumia 900. Preorders for new customers start at $99.99 whereas existing customers can reserve the Lumia 900 for $159.99. Take advantage of this opportunity as the contest closes April 10th.

Online Swiss retailer, Digitec is also accepting orders for the Lumia 900. Digitec has the Lumia listed for CHF 699 or about $760 USD. Neither site lists a date as to when orders will begin shipping but at least preorders have begun. AT&T take note!

The recently re-released Samsung Galaxy Beam is making its way to markets in India this coming April. The original Galaxy Beam hit the market back in 2010 to little fanfare. Samsung reintroduced the Galaxy Beam at this year’s Mobile World Congress. No price has been announced as of yet but we can be sure to hear more as time draws nearer to the release date.
