inform the world that devices like Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G, and Verizon's Samsung Fascinate as having Android 2.2 right now isn't the smartest idea. That is, of course, unless you plan on updating those devices right now.
At the beginning of the month, Huawei showed off a pair of their upcoming Android-powered smartphones. Unfortunately, while the image worked as a general tease, there wasn't a lot of information tagged along for the ride.

covered Cellbots on Android Community before, an open-source way to use your smartphone as a brain for a simple robot, but the project has released a new java app which supports not only custom, Arduino-based Cellbots but iRobot Create, LEGO MINDSTORMS and VEX Pro. Requiring Android 2.2 or above, the new app allows you to either remotely control the robot using the phone as a navigation pad, or alternatively mount the phone directly onto the robot and use it as the 'bot's brain. There's support for spoken commands, streaming video and even using a second Android phone running the app to work as a remote (while the first is in brain mode). It's a free download from the Android Market. [youtube _x_5WDCpvtA] [via MAKE]
