NO IT NEVER HAPPENED): You can listen and watch LIVE at http://www.streamly.tv, if you are mobile, you can listen at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/androidguys. The action starts at …
Sprint began airing a revised “Accolades” commercial this week, featuring a brief mention of the new EVO Shift 4G at the end. Touting it as a “smaller EVO with a slideout keyboard.” On the surface that might sound right, but there’s more to it than …
To T-Mobile and Samsung that is. Before I launch into my textual rant that has loving become known as “Ray-ging” (thanks to @technogasms), I need to put a disclaimer that this is an opinion piece, and my opinions may not reflect the opinions of Android …
Samsung has created an entire mini-site for their new Android 2.1-based Galaxy Player 50. As some of you know, the first Android powered MP3 device is now making its way across the UK, after which we hope to see it come stateside. The site gives visitors everything they need to know about the MP3 player, including a bunch of related videos.
Virgin Mobile has become the latest company to say good-bye to unlimited data plans. Effective February 15th, users on the pre-paid network will find their normal data transfer capped at 5GB with any overages resulting in much slower speeds. It’s essentially the same model that T-Mobile employs and, really, should be no problem for a majority of users.
Sprint recently shaved $100 of the price of their Galaxy Tab where they now list it at $299.99 with a two-year agreement. That’s a considerable chunk of money for a device that’s but a few months old. There are plenty of reasons as to why Sprint and Samsung might be dropping the price.
With Tivo, I almost never watch live TV, delaying even big games and season finales so that I can skip the ads.

Handmark’s Twitter client Tweetcaster has added a feature that will help solve that problem.
Google’s YouTube team announced Wednesday that a new set of music videos from the likes of Lady Gaga, Bob Dylan, and Kanye West, is now available to those using the latest version of the YouTube app, which requires Android 2.2 or higher. Previously, from major-music-label-backed video distributor VEVO, whose YouTube videos all include a short pre-roll VEVO branding ad, were not available via the app. Based on statements later in the announcement, it sounds like enabling those pre-roll ads was the key to adding VEVO’s content to the app
Well, at least this Samsung phone is getting updated to Froyo. Pre-paid wireless provider Virgin Mobile announced via Twitter that the Intercept, an 800 Mhz landscape slider that launched at Target stores last fall, will be upgraded to Android 2.2 “sometime this spring.”
ABBYY, a key player in the fields of document recognition and linguistic technologies, announced they’ve brought their popular Business Card Reader app to Android. Much like its Symbian and iOS counterparts, the app lets use transfer information from business cards directly to the phone’s contacts.
Since it debuted a year ago, Google Translate has been one of those apps that seems a little like magic, especially to those of us who grew up reading about the Babel fish in Douglas Adams’ novels. Google has just released a new version of the app that takes us a step closer to having a Babel fish in the ear.
