Google Maps v4.3.0 adds public transit timings, more

Google has pushed out the latest update to Google Maps for Android devices, with v4.3.0 bringing with it improved information on public transport together with better usability for Latitude and venue listings.  Google Maps 4.3.0 now shows upcoming transit departure times for stations, meaning you should be able to time your journey more accurately. There's also suggestions in Latitude, Google's map-based friend tracking system, and more detailed ratings in venue listings.  For instance, places may now be rated for atmosphere and customer service. We've just installed v4.3.0 but are having trouble pulling up transit information, both for London tube stations and for the NYC metro.  The station listings show which lines are served, but tapping them doesn't pull up any timings.  Anyone else having better luck?G

Droid Eris has been retired, Droid Incredible next?

Android 2.1 may be the last official update to the Eris from Verizon. They have decided to end support of the Eris, it was the launch partner of the original Droid.

Fancy Widget Gets C&D From HTC

That actually took longer than I expected it to take. Maybe Fancy Widget wasn’t popular enough up until now. Nonetheless, Fancy Widget will soon be gone from the Android Market. Like HTC did with the original Beautiful Widgets, they have requested the makers of Fancy Widget to pull their app from the market and stop imitating their custom clock/weather widget design that is found in their Sense UI package.
“With the release of this update, we are also here to share with you some bad news. Due to HTC’s complaint, the current version of Fancy Widget will soon be discontinued and removed from the market. This is the last update to the current version, and we suggest everyone upgrade to this version as soon as possible”
Get it while it’s hot, if you read the statement above, this widget will soon be removed from the market. The last update will be the final release of Fancy widget. In an effort to keep up with the beautiful Widgets de ja vu, the makers are planning on bringing it back shortly with a whole new design. Odds are, the new design will not be as “Fancy” as the current but it still should be a free app and a nice replacement for the original clock app. [via eurodroid]

Dell Streak Pairs Up With A Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse – Video

Here’s another feature in the hat of the Dell Streak. You can connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to the massive 5 inch screen on the Streak. Currently, the mouse has no functionality but it still cool that it even recognizes it. A Bluetooth keyboard and a nice dock is a great combination. It almost acts as a mini desktop computer. The best part about this is there’s no hacking required. Apparently you just pair up your keyboard and you’re on your way. There is no lag when typing on the keyboard. Everything is displayed almost instantaneously. If you have a Streak, try it out. If you’re still waiting for it to arrive you now have an extra function to look forward too.
