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.
It’s that time of the week again! Time for the AndroidGuys Weekly RoundUp. Let’s jump right into the news we covered last week, shall we?
The AndroidGuys Weekly Roundup is back, after a short hiatus! We covered a good chunk of news last week, so let’s jump right into it!
Before I begin, I want to point out that this is an opinion piece, and does not necessarily represent the opinions of everyone here at AndroidGuys. In fact, I know
Good ol’ HTC has confirmed that the Desire Z, Desire HD, Desire, and the newly announced Incredible S will all be getting some Gingerbread love soon enough.
According to a Samsung “company spokesman”, we can expect to see an 8.9-inch tablet sometime this year.
We told you last week about Eugene Kaspersky’s opinion on Android. He said that sooner or later, Android could dominate the market, with an over 80% market share, leaving Apple and RIM to fight for scraps. It looks like Kaspersky isn’t going to try to slow that down, as his company has just released an Android security app.
