Samsung comments on Galaxy Tab App Display issues, admits to some apps not scaling

Samsung today has acknowledged that some Android apps on the upcoming Galaxy Tab will not display correctly due to running smaller than the 7-inch screen allows. The issue here would be with apps that are 800-by-400 in pixel resolution. This problem only applies to a few downloadable third party apps, Google's entire suite of mobile apps such as the Market and maps are fully scaleable, as well as our own Android Community app.

Verizon’s VCast App Store Launching by the end of 2010

Last week we heard word that Verizon was planning on releasing their own app store to include on all Verizon Android devices. Verizon is now accepting submissions for apps running on Android 2.2, and stated that the Verizon App Store will be available by the end of this year. We still do not know the motivation in releasing their own App Store that will directly compete with the Android Market but Verizon is all about control and an App Store to host their own VCAST apps must make sense to them.

Orange San Francisco budget Android phone unveiled [Video]

Orange UK has outed its latest Android smartphone, the somewhat bizarrely named San Francisco, and they're targeting the budget-minded masses this time.  The Orange San Francisco will cost £99 on the carrier's "Dolphin" pay-as-you-go plan, which gets you a 3.2-megapixel camera, capacitive touchscreen and Android 2.1 Eclair. There's also WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and GPS, along with 3G+ and an FM radio, while storage is a scant 150MB of internal memory and then whatever you slap into the microSD card slot (a 2GB card is included in the box, but the slot will support up to 32GB).  The whole thing measures in at 116 x 56.5 x 11.8 and weighs 130g, and Orange reckon you'll see up to 4hrs talktime or nine days standby. Unlikely to set the world alight, but the Orange San Francisco certainly adds to the options for entry-level Android devices. Update: Orange tells us the San Francisco uses a 3.5-inch 800 x 480 OLED display, which makes it a whole lot more interesting at £99. [youtube -vhx9AeD1x0]
