  • Samsung’s Bada OS takes a walk, flashes us all.

    Best choice of words for a title? Eh, debatable. But it's not relevant. What is relevant however are screenshots of Samsung's new in-house Bada OS. When you see the pictures above, what impressions do you get? I'll admit that it's actually pretty nice looking. Much better than Symbian's refresh so far. But such things are best being left for judgement by the actual end user (read: you). So go ahead and give it a through ocular shakedown. After which, continuing the path downwards to the...
  • “The other fish in the sea”: Android 2.1 ROM ported to G1
    by Mike

    And naysayers were claiming the G1's days were numbered. Heck, I won't argue it's chin is getting pretty damn old. But that doesn't stop the vivid developer community for making the best of what the G1 has hardware wise. "Teh Dust" from xda-forums has no doubt been spending the last collection of hours locked away in some dark corner with a computer typing out sweet nothings into it's ear and pushing all the right buttons to align Android 2.1 (Flan) in a way that G1 users can surely appreciat...
  • Swipe for Android demoed on screen

    If you haven't heard, the next up and coming touchscreen tech is Swipe. It is an alternative method to inputing -- in this case sliding -- text onto a touchscreen device. Instead of tap tap tappin' away, Swipe users can simply slide their finger from one letter to the next providing quick and fluid firing of words and thoughts. This innovative new mobile app was first seen and launched exclusively on the Samsung Omnia II. That phone in particular is nothing special -- at least to more ha...
  • Android Market hits 20,000 apps!

    Apple may have surpassed the 6 digit mark when raw available apps are concerned, but a myriad of other factors make the Android platform and Android Market equally tempting. With 2009 rounding out rather favorably and 2010 already shaping up to be the year of several eye raising Android devices, the platform as a whole will only grow. If app counts are anything to go by, Android is in deed on the way up as today the Android Market finally moved passed 20,000 available apps for download. S...
  • Nexus One passes FCC with Tri-band US 3G support!

    The claims of a "Google Phone" are gaining momentum this morning. Just to throw it out there, now I'm finally starting to wish I would have waited a *tad* longer before picking up the Droid. I love it and all, but the Nexus One is hott (two T's hott!!) even without a physical qwerty. Personal lust behind us, the Nexus One has inched step closer to our hearts and hands this morning as pictures of it sailing through the FCC have gone public. Any additional info or shots of Android 2.1 won't b...
  • Windows Mobile 7 pushed deeper into 2010
    by Mike
    Posted December 12th, 2009 at 12:17 am
    "Windows Mobile 7 is being pushed further back into the tail end of 2010" -- not exactly the words Microsoft wants to speak nor the words WinMo hopefuls want to hear. Head of Microsoft's UK Mobility Division, Phil Moore, had those bleak words to share today. Windows Mobile 7 should have been released this summer, plain and simple. A 2010 date is bad enough. But quoting Microsoft themselves saying who are publicly announcing "late 2010" makes us wonder how much longer they're going to be rele...
  • Survey says: Europeans love Android, Milestone. Exclusive online retailer sells out within 2.5 hours after hanging “for sale” sign.

    Typically the iPhone is the talk of the town when sales numbers and "sell outs" are concerned as such things often include large sales volumes and quick sell outs when considering how many phones they actually push out. But they're not the only cool kid in town anymore. For the last month, our European friends have had to sit back and watch us poke and prod our lovely Moto Droid's in jealousy, longing for the day that such happiness can fall upon them. That day came in the form of December 10...
  • HTC Touch.B not shipping with Android. BrewMP pinch hitting.
    by Mike
    Posted December 3rd, 2009 at 6:48 am
    Remember that HTC Touch.B we talked about a couple days ago, eagerly anticipating the (as we hoped) Android goodness it was too bring? Well, sorry to break it to you but the shipping OS won't be Android. Heck, it won't even come with Windows Mobile either. Instead, MobiFrance says that it will be a BrewMP device (Mobile Platform). That's all find and dandy seeing as how BrewMP is in fact a widely available and free mobile operating system, but it's not doing much to get my geeky innards all ...
  • HTC Hero Euro-spec and Android 2.1 (Eclair) get some video action.
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 9:48 pm
    Android 2.1 is one of the most anticipated Android updates yet. For HTC Hero users even more so as they're currently stuck at the now old as dirt 1.5/Cupcake edition making 2.1 all the more sweeter. The video above shows an HTC Hero Euro-model packing Android 2.1 w/ Sense UI. It looks hot and performs well. There's only a few areas where some lag is noticeable. Though at this point in the game, lag shouldn't be non-existent. But I'll take what I can get for now. Watch the vid and leave ...
  • Good things come to those who wait: Motorola Sholes spied sans keyboard
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 1:51 pm
    Upon hearing news of a keyboardless Moto Droid (Sholes), two groups will instantly form. For one group the lack of a keyboard and thinner overall construction depict the perfect Android device. Others however will find the lack of the keyboard a major knock as that was one of the big selling points of the phone to begin with. Personally, I'd fall into the latter as I love the Droid's keyboard and don't find Android's onscreen keyboard quite refined enough to be the sole provider for text inpu...
  • Windows Mobile 7 will better embrace entertainment, web browsing.
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 1:33 pm
    If you could pick one thing that bugs you most about Windows Mobile, what would it be? Would it be the ugly interface, poor touch screen support, sluggish performance even on top of the line hardware, *insert reasoning here*? One thing is for certain, Windows Mobile needs more consumer minded design and implementation. What was once a corporate staple has since fallen to other victors such as RIM and doesn't begin to even hold a candle on the multimedia front when compared to the iPhone. Win...
