Nothing really exciting happened at KES2010, the Korean equivalent to the Consumer Electronics Show. Well, not entirely nothing. LG showed its newest device to the world, and boy it’s fast. In
Hip hip, hurray! Mobile Crunch has a tipster inside Sony Ericsson who has a lot of information about the heavily rumored device. We’ve put the most important information in a nutshell.
Samsung proves yet again that they really can’t keep some things secret. This time it’s another Android phone, the SCH-i510, codenamed “Stealth V”. Nothing stealthy about this device, it’s bringing
Just a few hours after the post about the custom ROM for the Xperia X10 had been published, we’ve got a lot of questions what ADB exactly was, and how to use it. Well, it’s quite easy to learn actually. It has a lot of complicated functions, but we’ll just do the basic stuff, assuming the average Android user has no need to know about debugging your applications, right?
Rejoice folks, you don’t have to rely on vague ROM makers anymore, because a couple of months ago, CyanogenMod has added the HTC Legend to their officially supported devices list.
This might be the perfect moments to sit down and sigh: “Finally…” After almost half a year of ridiculing Sony Ericsson for its hard-to-crack bootloader and speculating and dreaming about
HTC has released the source code for the G2, MyTouch 4G and the Verizon Droid Incredible today in their Developer Center. The developing community will probably be very happy with those, making a good and stable root possible much easier. Please note: The source of the G2 is not meant for the Desire Z. The G2 is running stock Froyo, while the Desire Z is creamed with HTC Sense.
Multitouch is on the way, but it will take some time and it will be pinch-to-zoom only. You see, when the two fingers cross each other on the X- or Y-axis, the phone starts to behave weird. But it’s still brilliant anyway.
Dell has become quite famous in the Android-scene with the Dell Streak, but their phones dind’t really shock the market. They’re trying it again with the XCD28 and the XCD35 and it probably won’t be a success. They’re ugly, no matter how you look at it. The specifications won’t stimulate people to buy them either, they’re running on an outdated processor architecture, the ARM11 core on 600 MHz, combined with 256MB RAM, these little babies might even be two of the worst phones available right now.
Engadget.com is reporting that the Wall Street Journal has been very smart with the release of their new Android application. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab being released as really the first viable Android tablet, the financial newspaper has created a tablet only application to allow you to read their content on the go.
Yes folks, there’s yet another Android tablet coming. This one is interesting in that it appears to be a Galaxy Tab knock-off. Although the hardware isn’t exactly low-end stuff, the $180 price is enough to garner second looks.
Could someone please fix Samsungs roof? They’ve been leaking so much about the new Samsung Continuum, that there weren’t actually many surprises at the announcement tonight. Well, there were a few of them.
We love it when people post some files to the internet early, as is the case with the Galaxy S Froyo source. The employees over Verizon continue the trend, posting a somewhat early guide of the Samsung Continuum.
Google Voice Search was already available to America, but there are still a lot of countries out there who can’t control their phones with just a few words. From today,
With the announcement of their new budget-friendly handsets like the Comet, T-Mobile officially rolled out their new new tethering plans. How does it work? It’s actually quite simple. The
