I just received very interesting notification from Android Market notifying me that the developer console will be out of service Nov 18 for whole 6 hours. Now, I’ve had apps
Since its mid-summer release, the HTC EVO 4G has received a fair amount of publicity. With a 4.3″ screen, it is one of the largest Android phones on the market, and it is one of only four phones with “4G” data capabilities. With increased visibility comes increased popularity, and it is clear that the EVO 4G has been well-received by the public.
Google has announced in a blog post that their Google Shopper application is being updated to version 1.3. Google Shopper was much more popular than originally expected, and it’s about to get even better. According to Daniel Switkin, the Senior Software Engineer for Google Shopper, the new version brings a few new features to the table. One such feature is the ability to filter your search results by price and/or brand.
Who watched Eric Schmidt yesterday as he waved around that unreleased phone? Yeah, it was running Gingerbread, but more importantly, it had NFC technology built in, and was demoed as that conference.
As the year comes to an end in a month or so, some pretty big announcements are sure to pop up. One of which is the VDC (Verizon Developer Community) “Power Your App” contest.
LG’s new powerhouse device, the Star.Ahh, LG. They’ve made some decent Android handsets in the last year or so. There was the Ally for Verizon, that E720 we caught a glimpse of in Poland, and most recently, the Optimus series on Tmobile, Verizon, and Sprint. But they never really excelled at Android. They haven’t made us look at one of their devices and say “wow!” Well, that’s about to change. Meet the LG Star, a leaked device that’s likely coming out in Q1 of next year.
Android enthusiasts and tech savvy gadget fans will already know this, but Qualcomm is becoming a pretty big deal in the mobile world. Thanks to handsets like the G2, Droid Incredible, and EVO 4G, Qualcomm’s chips are found in three out of every four Android phones. As Android continues its dominance in the smart phone universe, Qualcomm and the ever-popular Snapdragon processor is becoming the de facto benchmark for super phones.
LG has issued a press release today which finds the handset maker celebrating monumental sales figures. Thanks to low-cost phones like T-Mobile’s Optimus T and Sprint’s Optimus S, LG’s Optimus line has crossed one million sold in 40 days.
A little blue bird just dropped this picture in our inbox which shows the HTC Merge in Cellebrite. For those of you who haven’t purchased a new cell phone or
The Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog is posting what they are suggesting are the specs for the yet-announced Sony Ericsson ANZU/X12 handset.
Looks like Android has made a believer out of yet another hardware maker. Panasonic, admitting that they misjudged the growth in smart phone adoption, has pledged to bring Android-based handsets of their own to Japan next year.
Lookout just dropped a premium version of their super-popular security software for Android in the Market and it’s definitely worth a look. Called Lookout Premium (duh), it adds more peace of mind with the integration of remote wiping, remote locking, and enhanced backup and restore.
Those of you upset that you missed yesterday’s Web 2.0 Summit where Eric Schmidt talked about the future of Google, Android, and other related topics, should worry no more. A YouTube version of the video has landed online where you can catch all 45 minutes.
I consider Samsung to be one of the pioneers of this generation of smart/web TV’s. They weren’t running Google TV when I last saw them, but the sets were amazing nonetheless. Bringing about some really neat add-ons, like a camera so you could Skype with friends and Family. It didn’t seem like there was a bunch of room for expansion or further development though, which is what Android seems to have mastered. So it seems only logical that Samsung would take the success we have enjoyed from the Galaxy S line to their consumer electronics devices
