Sony’s Rachel UI flaunts her goods for the video camera!
Ya, this is one of those times where I just need to keep words to a minimum and let the video do it’s thing. In case you can’t see the movie, in short: these leaked conceptual demos of Sony’s “Rachel” UI are stunning and give Android’s pathetic stock media capabilities a kick in the digital groin. So much so I would even compare these as good or better than the iPhone. I love the iPhone’s media capabilities and perhaps it could just be that I’m tired of seeing the same thing attempted on so man competitors and this new, unique UI has my captivated. Quite possible indeed. All I know is I want it — bad. Sony, don’t f this up. Please. Bring this to market and you will have a winner!
The layout Sony uses is very Zune-like. Personally, I like it a lot. The latest Zune has a stunning interface so a direct comparison is actually a good thing. The navigation is quickly discernible as vastly different than anything Apple. Every little part of Rachel shows that Sony has truly put in some wrench time. Even small things like transitions between pictures is well done. The fade out, move, fade in effect is a nice detour from Apple’s more common, simple swipe. I really could go on, but I said this would be short. So another movie is in order. Gaze on…

Well stomp on frogs and shove a crow bar up my nose. SD app storage, a feature that has been requested across many platforms to alleviate space issues when meager amounts of device memory are concerned have been around for several years.

If you thought the Chinese manufacturer Huawei was making a one hit wonder with the T-Mobile Pulse, think again as they’ve announced plans to continue Android development by releasing more devices featuring the quickly growing mobile OS. Within the next 6 months, Britain can expect to see “several more” Android handsets released, according [...]
One of the greatest things about modern, mobile operating systems is the ability to download updates OTA (Over the air). While the iPhone requires you to tether up (hey, 200+ meg downloads on a mobile device via cellular network is gag inducing) and RIM + carriers haven’t really taken advantage of said feature in [...]
So Big Red is like a disease to you and you can’t fathom moving to Euro-land just to purchase and *fully* use a Euro-spec Droid Milestone? No worries dear reader as a screenshot showing a reported “dev only” section of a MotoBLUR site shows something very interesting indeed. See that circled bit of [...]

Ready for a midday round of disappointment coupled with a dash of optimism? The Acer Liquid was to be a Snapdragon powered beast of a mobile device. For those with already wondering minds, be at ease as the Liquid is still coming and with a Snapdrgaon proc to boot. There’s only one [...]
Motorola here in the states is enjoying a building hype as the Droid launch approaches. Now just 4 days away, many smartphone users are salivating at the awesomeness that awaits them.

Oh German readers, today is your day. Well, not literally in the sense you’ll get any physical gratification, but you’ll at least get hope for near future gratification. The Motorola Droid which is far and wide the most anticipated Android phone to date is mere days from a U.S. release. Lucky for [...]
Choosing a new smartphone in the current market is quite the challenge. You have the iPhone, a number of Android devices, the Palm Pre, countless WinMo units, and very, very soon the Droid. If you know a little something about the industry, you probably already know the most obvious differences between the devices, [...]
Companies get ideas, services, and products patented everyday. If it’s an idea, they may never even implement or use it in any current or future products. They’re protecting themselves. Because of this, we can’t take every patent we see literally or as if it is “set in stone” but instead more as [...]
Ben and Jerry was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. For me, it was the whole stereotypical cat vs. mouse thing that always had me hooked. Now that I’m a big boy, (some may dispute that) I still watch cat and mouse drama every day. Except now it isn’t a cartoon. [...]
