    Android is all about customization and tweaking the hell out of it. While a large majority of those jumping on the Android bandwagon aren't exactly the largest book of technical knowledge, it's good to know that it's not stopping development of custom ROM's and all the enjoyable bits and pieces that make Android the highly customizable. The last week has seen Android 2.1 (Flan) as the current "must have" for Droid users. I myself flashed the latest 2.1 ROM available and was thoroughly imp...
  • HTC HD2 video showing TMO branding all but confirms what we already knew…

    Regardless of your opinion on Windows Mobile, you have to admit that the HTC HD2 -- all 4.3" of it's glass faced frontal beauty -- is a drop dead gorgeous phone. Currently however, US citizens are left without any official channels to pick up a subsidized or even a US version of the device. That's all set to change in the not too distant future. A video (below) showing a new "2.0.1" ROM showcases among other things, a very familiar magenta boot image that goes "Stick Together" -- a TMO sl...
  • HTC to release widgets for non-HTC devices?

    After my colorful rant voicing my displeasure for HTC's move to C&D; LevelupStudios and their "Beautiful Widgets" which mimicked the Sense UI widgets, I was mad, sad, and frustrated. But a few obscure, hidden gems on AndroLib highlighted by one eagle-eyed Phandroid commenter digs up some dirt that could very well make me eat my words. The three test applications in the picture above show nothing more than a "test" application put forth by HTC themselves. Awesome, what's the significance? Th...
  • HTC Hero Euro-spec and Android 2.1 (Eclair) get some video action.

    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 ...
  • Android 2.1 Hero ROM w/ HTC Sense UI leaked.

    So you've been lusting over Sense UI playing nice with the upcoming Android 2.1 update these last couple of days. Pictures are indeed worth a thousand words yet somehow, we are left wanting more. Understandable. And so you shall receive. HTC Hero owners who are starting to twitch due to the now ancient Android 1.5 build they're currently running can -- if they have the hacking chops -- download a freshly leaked Android 2.1 ROM, complete with Sense UI wrapped all around. I could go on but yo...
  • 3 UK officially announces HTC Hero/Spotify 2-year premium access bundle.

    If you recall, earlier last month we mentioned that a new UK based cellular carrier "3", was set to offer quite the bundle for the mobile music streamer in conjunction with Android and the HTC Hero. At that time, the deal hadn't been officially announced by anyone, however splash pages and documentation of the deal were available for many to see giving this "rumor" a legitimate footing. Today 3 UK has come forth via their online blog officially announcing the deal to all. In case you forgot, ...
  • HTC “Book” UI coming to a smartphone near you?

    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 "suggestions" as what could be coming in the future. With touchscreen's the new "it" feature on dumbphones, featurephones, and smartphones alike, distinguishing yourself from the playing field that...
  • HTC Magic ROM upgrade brings Sense UI onboard.

    HTC Magic owners lusting after the eye candy and graphical supremacy that is the Sense UI can now make use of an updated Magic ROM via HTC's support site. Besides including the Sense UI, this updated ROM, version " 3.03.715.4", comes complete with Android 1.5 Cupcake. Not quite as exciting as 1.6 (Donut), though better than nothing at least. Talk of HTC Magic's getting the Sense UI have been discussed before as has the lack of T-Mobile/Google branded MyTouch 3G's from receiving this same ...
  • Sprint HTC Hero “Google Experience” models support EV-DO Rev A. Non-Google units stuck at Rev 0? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 7:47 am
    **Update: All is well in the world again. According to HTC, the problem is actually a rouge text display problem "claiming" to be merely Rev 0 when in fact the phone can actually be in Rev A mode. Whew, crisis adverted. Happy surfing. Well this would certainly be scandalous. It appears that a bit of strangeness is running around the Android world as of the last couple of days with Sprint's HTC Hero officially being released. The problem appears to be centered around said devices manu...
  • HTC and Sprint come together to announce their Android based baby swaddled in plastic.

    Posted September 3rd, 2009 at 9:30 am
    Android junkies have no doubt been following the HTC Hero -- one of the most anticipated Android devices of 2009. While we, the electronically informed knew of it's coming long ago, HTC and Sprint have officially come forward to give us all some set in stone confirmation. Starting October 11th for a rather affordable $179.99 after your typical hodge podge of various discounts, the HTC can be your one true love. As you can see from the image to the left, the Sprint version of the Hero got a ra...
  • Sense UI coming to all (Except those experiencing Google)
    by Mike
    Posted August 17th, 2009 at 5:52 am
    While eye candy and one's gravitation towards a particular UI is completely subjective, I myself find Android to be rather attractive and hip if not a tad "kiddish" in style. Again, some will disagree with me, labeling Android in its stock form too cartoonish for their tastest. Part of Android's open nature means vendors a free to skin the operating system until their hearts content in order to make it their own. HTC has done just that. Following their design saviness that somehow managed ...
  • HTC Sense UI coming to Windows Mobile

    Posted June 29th, 2009 at 7:27 am
    While the HTC loving world had their worlds rocked when the Sense UI for Android was announced, many WinMo fans more than likely had a bad taste in the mouths. Not because of what they ate of course, but because of the ever increasingly beautiful UI's that crop up leaving the always aging WinMo in the dust. However, all is not lost. Apparently, the Sense UI for Android is but one pillar of three that will make up the core of "Sense". Per HTC: The Hero UI has been created specifically fo...
