Seesmic v1.3 adds widget, geotagging, more

There are plenty of Twitter apps for Android, but in our opinion Seesmic is one of the best.  The team behind it may just have made it even better, however, with Seesmic for Android v1.3: the update adds geotagging and extra retweeting functionality, as well as satisfying one of the most commonly requested features, a homescreen widget.

Finally, geotagging can automatically or manually add location data to newly posted updates.  Seesmic for Android v1.3 is available - free - from the Android Market.

Motorola Android flip-phone leaks

Images of a new Motorola Android smartphone have leaked, with the unnamed model having a flip cover form-factor similar to the Verizon Motorola Krave ZN4.  The touchscreen handset has a transparent cover and a row of touch-sensitive controls; it's also a MOTOBLUR device, it seems, going from icons on the homescreen. According to IT168, where the images leaked, the phone is in prototype stage.  Interesting it has dual network indicators showing in the status bar, which some are speculating could mean it has dual-3G capabilities for better coverage.  Other tipped specs include a 5-megapixel camera and 720p HD video recording. Of course, it could also be a Motorola-styled copy, running a ripped build of the company's Android OS and themed around their popular Ming/Krave design. [gallery] [via Engadget Chinese]
