Netflix has been both a blessing and a curse since the release of the Android app. It originally only worked on a handful of devices, until someone discovered that by
Eventually, the guys over at Samsung are going to run out of letters to put at the end of “Galaxy” in order to name their devices. First it was the
We’ve been waiting on this for quite some time now, but it looks like HTC and T-Mobile finally have that Gingerbread update ready for the G2. Of course, it’s about
Lenovo’s been in the groove lately with Android devices, haven’t they? First we got a look at the Honeycomb-equipped ThinkPad, and now this. The guys over at Engadget have gotten their hands
Well, the development team behind Dolphin Browser HD has just released an update, and it brings an awesome new feature to the table. They’re calling it Webzine, and it’s actually pretty nice-looking. It’s essentially a thumbnail view of web pages and bookmarks, and users can scroll through the thumbnail as if it was the actual page. And if they want to go to the desired page, a simple tap of the thumbnail is all that’s necessary. Webzine looks to take bookmarks to the next level, and I’m duly impressed.
It’s that time of the week again, as the rumor mill is in full swing, this time with a new tablet from Motorola that’s sure to turn some heads (if it even exists). A rumor has reached the guys over at SlashGear, and it’s proposing that Moto is working on a new Android tablet, one to truly rival the iPad 2. This device is said to sport a 10-inch HD display, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and the speculation doesn’t end there. The rumored tablet will be running Ice Cream Sandwich, something we haven’t heard much about since Eric Schmidt gave us some details on it.
Remember the Huawei Ascend? It launched on Cricket Wireless in October of last year, along with a few other regional carriers. Well, it looks like Huawei has put the finishing touches on the successor to the Ascend, which they’re calling, creatively enough, the Ascend II. It’s packing a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a measly 600MHz processor, Gingerbread (Android 2.3), 5MP camera, and the usual WiFi, 3G connectivity, and a micro SD card slot.
We first heard about Android 3.2 when Huawei announced their 7-inch MediaPad last month, and we learned that it is essentially a version of Honeycomb that was built with more processors and smaller displays in mind. It would appear that the guys over at DroidLife have gotten their hands on some information, and they’re claiming that the Moto Xoom is getting a 3.2 update that’s already begun to roll out in small batches.
Well, we knew this day was coming sooner or later. Verizon has confirmed the date for what many people feared: their switch from unlimited data plans to tiered data plans. Starting on July 7th (that’s this Thursday, folks), Verizon will offer three options for smartphone users.
Well, we honestly can’t say we’re surprised. If you look at the success of the original Galaxy S, it’s no shocker that its successor would sell. At any rate, Samsung has announced that they’ve officially sold over 3 million Galaxy S II units, just 55 days after its release. If you do a little math, that’s one Galaxy S II sold every one and a half seconds.
If you’re not familiar with Path, it was launched in November last year on iOS, and is just making its way to Android. It’s a service that helps you stay
Now, before you start jumping for joy on this one, there’s a catch or two. Let’s start with the HTC Flyer. It’ll be coming to T-Mobile, but only the UK branch has announced it for later this month. No word on pricing or if they’ll rename it, like Sprint’s Evo View 4G.
We haven’t heard much about the Droid 3 so far, but it looks like that’s about to change. A leaked Verizon document is giving some juicy info on the Droid
If you’re not familiar with LeapFrog, they’re a children’s learning and entertainment company that specializes in fun education for kids. They’ve been producing interactive books and software for years, and
