HTC myTouch 3G Slide for T-Mobile Review

When T-Mobile announced the myTouch 3G, it was almost immediately welcomed warmly into the Android family. With the exception of, perhaps, the name, the myTouch 3G saw a wide adoption, as people jumped on board the Android train. And now that it's been out for some time, and it's seen a couple of "refreshes," T-Mobile and HTC have seen fit to add a new model to the family. So here we are with the myTouch 3G Slide, which adds a bigger screen, a bit more bulk, and a physical keyboard. But, with all those additions, does the Slide hit the nail right on the head, or is it not enough to be a warm new welcome to the family name? Find out below.

Lenovo Skylight and UI Hybrid will now feature Android

Since we first laid eyes on this innovative tablet at CES, we’ve always wondered what it would be like if Android was running on such a device. Well, our dreams have come true, Lenovo has opted out of using their own custom version of Linux in favor of Android. They also have pushed back the release most likely in preparation for an Android loaded Skylight and UI Hybrid.

The Compal 7 is an Android tablet that features the famed Tegra 2 chips, it was recently handled at the Netbook Summit here in San Francisco. Is it just me or is the wait for these NVIDIA Tegra 2 tablets following in the footsteps of Flash 10 for Android. It seems like we’ve been waiting on these to arrive for a year now. There have been many prototypes demonstrated with this awesome technology ad yet none of them has hit the streets yet.

Acer Stream Poses for Photoshoot After Showing Off Own Camera Capabilities [Video]

It hasn't been long at all since the Acer Stream went all official on us, let alone its passage through the FCC. But, that doesn't mean we should be surprised that we are getting a clean, straight-on shot of the future handset. But, what makes it all better, is that we've also got a pair of videos showing off the Stream's very capable on-board camera. And yes, we even get to see some video shot in that beautiful 720p.

Qik video chat on EVO 4G will be free

After a leak late last week suggesting that video chat on the HTC EVO 4G using the Qik app would be subject to a $4.99 monthly fee, the Qik team themselves have piped up to quell dissent.  According to the company's blog, two-way video calling on the Sprint EVO 4G will be free of charge for Qik users; in fact, the subscription is "for some advanced premium features."
"Firstly, rest assured that the core Qik service that lets you communicate live from your phone to other phones, web and desktop will be FREE. Yes – this means that the core capability of doing 2-way Qik video chat will be FREE for Sprint EVO 4G users. The subscription fee will be for some advanced premium features that we are working on, which we will be announcing on June 4th – the day the amazing HTC EVO 4G phone launches."
Calls will be supported between EVO 4G handsets - if you know someone else with one - together with between other phones running the Qik app and with the company's desktop client.  No word on what exactly these premium features will be, but Qik promise to tell all when the EVO 4G officially debuts on June 4th.

Froyo Ported To The HTC Desire

The Froyo that is floating around may not be the final build but that isn’t stopping Android modders from porting it over to different devices. Yesterday we showed you all 2.2 on an Acer Liquid and today it’s the Desire’s turn. Ahmgsk from the XDA is the mastermind behind this port.

Samsung Galaxy S for AT&T leaks?

Hands-on with SlingPlayer Mobile on Nexus One [Video]

After Sling Media showed off their SlingPlayer for Android beta, we knew we had to have a try ourselves.  After a little cajoling we got our hands on the pre-release software and booted it up on a Google Nexus One for a place-shifting play. The app is clearly almost ready for prime-time, though we did encounter some issues when it came to closing and reopening it.  Image quality over WiFi was decent - especially since we were testing the app in the UK, with content being shifted from a US-based Slingbox hooked up to a DISH Network STB - though we haven't been able to get it working over 3G as yet. [Update: We've spoken with Sling Media about the 3G connection issues we've been seeing, and they think it could be to do with the O2 network in the UK that our Nexus One is using; apparently they've seen similar issues with O2 iPhones.  They're looking into the issue and we'll revisit this when they have a solution; needless to say, they intend Sling over 3G to work on Android, and it's performing just as it should over US 3G networks.] More first-impressions over at SlashGear.

Qik video chat for EVO 4G a $5 monthly extra?

One of the things Sprint didn't have ready in time for our HTC EVO 4G review was Qik video chat functionality, the ability to make video calls to other Qik users via the smartphone's front-facing camera.  Now, according to a leak to AndroidGuys, it turns out the functionality may add even more on top of the EVO 4G's basic monthly costs. They've received a leaked screenshot purportedly from inside Sprint, which tips a $4.99 monthly service charge for the Qik video call system.  That would be paid via Paypal rather than included in your monthly Sprint bill. With Skype video calling for Android expected later on in the year, we're reluctant to start paying Sprint (or Qik) $5 a month for the same service.
