Hands on with the Gingerbread Keyboard!

I don’t think I can appropriately describe how much work it would take to pull me away from Swype. One handed, there is no better way to type. Period. I’m not even leaving that one open to opinion, as far as I am concerned it’s fact. When I saw that Gingerbread was coming with ...

Hands on with the Archos 10.1

I feel like we are finally starting to see decent Android tablets come into play. They aren’t the super dual core, Tegra 2 monsters we’ve seen sneakies of, but actual usable tablets. The Galaxy Tab really set a bar as far as quality and design goes, despite the arguments to the ...

Samsung Galaxy Tab: Reviewed

After reading about the Samsung Galaxy Tab for what seemed like years (JK, it was only two months) I never thought it would come to the carriers much less to my house. I have owned the Archos and Augen versions of the mythical Android tablet and for my money, I believe Samsung got it right and ...

MyTouch 4G… An Inside Look [REVIEW]

T-Mobile fans and subscribers, I would wager to say that the majority of us are sporting something from the MyTouch series if we don't have the Nexus One. Personally, after the G1, I moved to the MyTouch 3G, then to the MT3G Slide, and now, I have had the opportunity to get my hands on the 4G ...

An Early Look at Winamp for Android’s SHOUTcast Integration

Music is one of the major ways on how we define ourselves. Many of us carry around our MP3 player, along with our smartphone. With larger SD cards, we've started to save our music on there, and move to one device, but let's be honest, we still get sick of the same playlist over and over. ...

Hands-On Review of the OtterBox Commuter Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G

Since its mid-summer release, the HTC EVO 4G has received a fair amount of publicity. With a 4.3" screen, it is one of the largest Android phones on the market, and it is one of only four phones with "4G" data capabilities. With increased visibility comes increased popularity, and it is clear ...

Flee Hearkens Back to Early 90′s Handheld Gaming

We received a tip from FrugalGames earlier this evening about their first Android game, Flee. After checking out their YouTube video and blog, I was intrigued and decided to download it and try it out. Two minutes into playing it, I was immediately transported back to the late 80s' where I was ...

Review: Sound ID 510 Bluetooth Earpiece. A Good Thing in a Small Package.

Being addicted to gadgetry like many of our Android Guys readers, it is safe to say that I have been through literally dozens of bluetooth wireless earpieces to match the myriad number of smartphones that I have used over the years.  So I have to admit that I am a bit jaded when I hear...

24 Hours with the Cliq 2.1 Update

I think the chief complaint behind companies who insist on having the own software overtop Android, be it Blur, Sense, or TouchWiz, is the delay in updates. Here I am, probably only a few short weeks, a month at most away from seeing Gingerbread Stock on my Nexus (I’m guessing – ...

App Review: MultiTasking Pro

Unlike a certain fruit based crowd, us Android users have been enjoying multitasking on our devices since, well… the dawn of time (that being the beginning of Android, anything beforehand being too insignificant to be regarded as “time”). However, there has never been a really great way of ...

The phones we purchase are nice devices, we spend the money to get the best.  Some people spend as much on their phone as they do their PC or maybe even more.  So we should only be as respectful to them as we are with our home computers.  Lookout Mobile Security watches over your device...

Graffiti for Android – kickin’ it old school

There is literally a virtual keyboard for everyone, even people who have not used a virtual keyboard since the days of the original Palm handhelds. Remember those weird little pads at the bottom, where you could spell out every letter or number? I got pretty fast on mine. The software that ...

BeejiveIM – a Pretty IM Client

The Instant Messenger is one of the first huge changes to the internet that, in my opinion, brought on a great deal of its early popularity for teen audiences. When IM went mobile, in an pseudo-text message format, it seemed almost absurd how often I would use my phone to keep in touch with ...
