Around the Androidosphere [Remnants]
The Android news has been coming at us pretty fast lately.Â Even with the great team we have here at AndroidGuys, there are still going to be articles and items that slip through the cracks.Â For this very reason, we created a meta-post called â€œAround the Androidosphereâ€ which aims to fill in the gaps.
On top of all of that, we’ve been seeing some downtime here on the site.Â It’s hard to keep up with all the latest and greatest Android news and rumors when the site is down.Â For that we apologize.Â We’re working to resolve issues as fast as possible.Having said all of that, itâ€™s time for another quick round of â€œstuff-we-didnâ€™t-get-to-but-still-worth-a-mentionâ€.
- One analyst thinks that Android might be growing too fast for its own good.Â Are developers being given too many options to code around and not enough time?
- A former Android skeptic now says the platform is “clearly on its way to becoming a serious iPhone challenger” and could knock the wind out of Palm and BlackBerry’s sails.
- Asus has “secret weapon” in their Android-based Eee PC.Â Launching early in 2010, this netbook will have a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and sell for around $180.
- The Samsung Spica will be land in Nokia country next month.Â Finland will see the 800MHz powered handset arriving in November for around $695 US dollars.
- Did you happen to see what TomTom and Garmin stock did the other day when Google Maps Navigator was announced?Â Ouch.
- If you’re holding your breath over and Android-based HTC HD2, you might wanna give up.Â According to HTC, they want to use this type of device to turn Windows Mobile around.
- Wanna grab the Droid next week but you aren’t sure how much to budget for the accessories?Â This should help.
- Remember the Insyde Market we tipped you off on last month?Â It opened its doors!

It has been interesting to see the release process for the Galaxy line of devices from Samsung, releasing first in the UK and other overseas destinations (excluding Japan and China which seem to get all the cool toys first). Samsung has announced today that they are keeping in that tradition by reporting via press release that they will be releasing the Galaxy S 2 on May 1st in the UK. Successor to the very popular line of Galaxy handsets, the S 2 brings with it more processing power via a dual core processor, plus an upgrade to the Super AMOLED screens, called Super AMOLED Plus. As far as the flavor of Android, we know it is Gingerbread, but it is sure to be “touchwiz-ed” out.
If you have never had the pleasure of using HD Widgets, you’re missing out my friend. Today, the developers of HD Widgets are pushing out their latest theme called, Kairo.
Android is nothing new in Canada and while we don’t have a very large selection of different handsets, the average person would be able to tell you what it is.
