We got our hands on a leaked roadmap for T-Mobile last month. Among some awesome devices like the HTC Sensation and Samsung Hercules, we noticed something called the “Doubleshot”. We later learned that it’s actually a MyTouch 4G with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. After weeks of speculation, we’re finally getting a first look at the device itself.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a study that points to cell phone radiation causing cancer. You can read the whole article on CNN here, but it’s a bit long.In a nutshell, they can’t be sure as of now, because they need more long-term studies to confirm it, but apparently the radiation that we get from holding our Android (or any other) phones up to our ears all day long is similar to a “very low-powered microwave oven”, in that it essentially cooks the brain.
ViewSonic has never really been known for making killer Android tablets, with a history of using older versions of Android on less than spectacular tablets with less than spectacular specs. But it looks like they’re ready to turn that around with the announcement of the ViewPad 7X
Asus has just announced via their Facebook page that the popular Transformer tablet will be getting an Android 3.1 FOTA update tomorrow, as in, May 31. This announcement comes hot off
Andy Rubin let it slip a few weeks ago that Google was working on another Nexus device, this one to be the first device to run Ice Cream Sandwich, which essentially brings Honeycomb to both tablets and phones, with each device getting the assets and features that fit it best. We first heard whispers that LG would be the manufacturer of this new Nexus device (some referred to it as the Nexus 3), but now we’re learning that HTC also has a hand in the proverbial cookie jar.
Asus is on a roll as of late. They launched the Eee Pad Transformer, a 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet with a dockable QWERTY keyboard and a 5MP camera. As if that wasn’t impressive and jaw-dropping enough, Asus has just released these photos of an unnamed tablet in the works, and they’re not holding back on this one either.
Despite their potential buyout, I’m very impressed with T-Mobile as of late. First they announced the HTC Sensation, and then we got a look at their 2011 roadmap yesterday, which included the MyTouch 4G Slide, Samsung Exhibit 4G, and something titled the “Samsung Hercules”. Well, we’re learning more about the Hercules, and it’s shaping up to be an impressive device.
T-Mobile has found a way to give phone owners money and save the environment, all at the same time. They’ve launched a trade-in program for anyone that wants to participate.
If you’re like me, you have pictures from some of the most memorable moments of your life, whether it be your wedding, that time you went out with friends that you’ll never forget, or the birth of your first child. Until now, there hasn’t been a good Android app that lets users put these pictures together in a montage of their best moments. Enter Retrollect, an app that was released today by Border Stylo, a Los Angeles-based company.
If you’re big into the stock market, we may have just the app for you on this one. PDATrade has released PDATrade for Android, an app that lets users look at market stats, quotes, indices, news, and alerts, all while streaming from the NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX Exchanges.
Google is on fire today with Android Market announcements, and they don’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Google has announced the addition of some new “app discovery” features in the Market. Eric Chu announced today that they’re working on implementing new features into both the Android Market, and the online Market as well
We’ve just learned that Google is ramping up the Android Market, and they’re trying to help developers along the way. Google is set to release Multiple APK, a tool that will allows devs to release different apks (all under the same app name) of their app that work better with certain devices.
Seavus Group has announced the launch of Soc.io Mall, which is being dubbed as the one place to get anything and everything for your Android device, whether it be apps, games, ebooks, or music.
That was fast! Motorola is actually the first out of the gate with this one, which is surprising given their track record with updates. That’s right, the Motorola Xoom will be getting some Android 3.1 love this week via an over-the-air update.
