The latest version (188.8.131.52) of video chat/mobile IM client fring has landed in the Android Market, bringing a new feature called Dynamic Video Quality along for the ride. Called DVQ
In an effort to keep the hype needle moving forward, the NotionInk blog has been busy as of late, teasing things like the mail application and web browser for their Adam tablet. The latest blog post, from today, provides hints as to a potential Android announcement for December 6th.
Two months after it first debuted and barely a month since its stateside arrival at T-Mobile, Samsung is celebrating one million Galaxy Tabs shipped
Best Buy has announced a big smart phone initiative that will see free Android smart phones offered every day in December. Starting today and running through the end of the month, Best Buy will feature at least four free smart phones online, in each of their stores and, of course, Best Buy mobile locations.
The figures are in and it looks like the third quarter (Q3 ’10) was very kind to both Samsung and Android. Gartner has just reported that the handset manufacturer accounted for 32.1 percent of all Android smart phones sold in the United States over the previous three month period.
As we head into the new year and a slew of new Android goodies, we’d like to start reflecting on the current crop of phones. We’ll be taking the next few days and weeks to gauge our readers’ opinions on handsets and carriers as they pertain to Android.

Remember those creepy Google TV commercials for Logitech featuring the television that “misses you”? Well, Logitech has somehow found a way to make those seem a little less weird. Take a look at the latest ad spot for Google TV which features Kevin Bacon as a guy who loves Kevin Bacon. Also, he looks like Stanley Tucci in The Lovely Bones.

Announced back in May, Android 2.2 now accounts for more than 43-percent of the Android pie.
You knew it wouldn’t be long before the other players started chipping away at Verizon’s 4G news. Only hours after the announcement, Clearwire is among the first to come out publicly and take on Big Red’s LTE network.
We’ve waited for more than two years for this day. Google officially rolled out their RSS Reader application to Android handsets on Monday yet we had not seen anyone cover it. It’s crazy too, because we know tons of people who have pined for this app forever!
