Want An Android Phone? Don’t Choose AT&T – Part 2

Seems like it was just yesterday that we all were disappointed when we found out that AT&T will use Yahoo Search instead of Google Search in the Moto BackFlip and you will not have the ability to install apps from places other than the Android Market. Well folks, they’ve done it again. The upcoming Dell Aero, a renamed Mini 3, will be locked down as well.

Hummingbird Graphics Processor, Galaxy S

Well, this came as a complete surprise to me. The Galaxy S will be the strongest handset as far as graphics and gaming goes when it is released (unless something stronger is in the making). Once you pair this outstanding GPU with its beautiful SUPER AMOLED display and powerful processor, you will have a handset that truly rivals today’s mobile gaming platforms.

Asphault 5 For Android

Raging Thunder 2 may have been knocked off as the best 3D racing game for Android with the introduction of Asphalt 5 by Gameloft. The graphics of this game are some of the best that I have seen on Android. A few disadvantages of this game are, there is no multi player option and it costs over a dollar more than Raging Thunder 2 and it works best on second generation hardware. Some people say that this game doesn’t play well on the Nexus but it plays just fine on mines.

HTC Desire arrives & gets video unboxing

It feels like we've been waiting ages since Mobile World Congress and the launch of the HTC Desire, but the Android 2.1 smartphone is finally in our hands. Packing the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the Google Nexus One, but bearing the latest version of HTC's alluring Sense UI, the Desire has a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Flash Lite support and a 5-megapixel camera. The Desire is set to go on sale through UK carriers T-Mobile and Vodafone over the next few days - in fact T-Mobile are already shipping handsets out this weekend, with deliveries expected to begin on Monday - and with the Nexus One still not officially available in Europe there's a lot resting on this new device.  First impressions are certainly positive; the display is just as bright and eye-catching as we know from the Nexus One, and Sense whips along on the 1GHz CPU. We'll be putting the HTC Desire through its paces over the weekend and expect to have the full review up next week.  More photos plus first-impressions and a demo video (including Flash in the browser) over at SlashGear!

Google’s Advertising Rev-Share Deals With Carriers

Partnering up with Google may prove to be more lucrative for the carriers then we originally thought. We already know that Google’s Android is an open source product that anyone can adopt for use on their handset. We also know that Google shares a portion of the app sales with carriers. According to multiple sources, Google is sharing some of its advertising revenue with the carriers to further entice them to use Android on their handsets.
