We thought for just a moment that Amazon had bought exclusive rights to Angry Birds Rio when it appeared on their new app store, but not the Android Market. We were wrong.
You read that correctly, HandyGames, the group behind such Android games as Aporkalypse and Guns ‘N’ Glory, has dropped the price of all its games to just 0.99€ (about $1.40).
Join me as I cover all the news we reported on AndroidGuys from March 20th to March 26th!
We just got a tweet from the official Samsung Twitter account, and it looks like it’s going to be good weekend for Mesmerize owners. That’s right, the Samsung Mesmerize is getting some Froyo love.
We’ve just gotten a press release from the team behind the SwiftKey Tablet keyboard, and they’ve apparently won the CTIA E-Tech Award. We here at AndroidGuys would like to extend our congratulations to the SwiftKey team. If you’re not familiar with SwiftKey, it’s a virtual keyboard for Android that started out as an alpha keyboard. I myself was an alpha tester, and let me tell you that it’s come a long way from the public beta released last year.
We’ve gotten word from the guys over at BusinessWire that Kyocera has launched an Android developer program, aimed specifically at app development for their Echo device that we saw back in February. They’re claiming that they already have some major Android developers on board (although they’re not naming any names), and are looking for more.
Well, you had to know it would happen sooner or later. The HTC Thunderbolt, one of the most talked about, loved, and delayed phones we’ve seen to date, has been rooted.
The Facebook for Android app has been updated once again. This update brings, among bug fixes and such, the ability to post pictures on a friend’s wall or on a
Ahh, the HTC Pyramid. We first got wind of this device in early February, when we learned that it’s likely headed for Tmobile. It also later popped up in a leaked inventory shot. Well, we finally got a good look at the Pyramid, and it’s impressive to say the least. It was spotted somewhere on the internet in China, and we’ve even got some supposed specs for you.
Yeah, it’s that time of the week again: time for the AG Weekly RoundUp, where I cover all the news that we reported on last week. So, let’s get to it!
We got confirmation from Motorola’s Sanjay Jha last month that the WiFi version of the popular Xoom tablet would be launching with a $600 price tag.
We told you about HandyGames last month, when they released Aporkalypse, a game for Android devices. Well, they’ve got another one, fresh out of the oven. The game is called CyberLords-Arcology, set in the year 2173, when megacorporations rule the world and governments are practically endangered. Ordinary people have superhuman abilities thanks to powerful NanoGear implants. They must use their bodies as weapons to take back their planet.
We’ve just gotten word from the geniuses at Swype, who tell us that their Swype Beta keyboard has gotten an upgrade.
The app is called Automated Away Text, and it does pretty much what the title suggests: if you miss a call or receive a message, but can’t reply at the moment, it sends an automated text message to that person, letting them know that you can’t make it to the phone.
