Angry Birds … the Movie?

If you're a fan of the hysterically funny Red vs. Blue, and you can't get enough of playing Angry Birds (isn't it the law now?), you're gonna love this trailer for Angry Birds ... The Movie. Okay, before you get too excited, the trailer is a fake. But it's a pretty good one. It's a parody of the action genre. But to be honest, it's pretty well conceived and the production values give it heft. The story follows a covert operative who is charged with infiltrating the Pigs territory and liberate the eggs they've taken. And he's given the military's latest top secret weapon ... of course, it's the Angry Birds and a slingshot. And the puppets of the birds look pretty awesome. The story details the operative's struggle as he uses and kills the birds in attacking the pigs fortresses. His disillusionment over his mission, and eventually his triumph. [youtube 2matH4B9bTo] But even though it's meant to be rather comical, I think it would be far funnier if it had more of the Angry Birds in it. The ending has the operative saying "you wouldn't like me Angry ... Birds." Huh? What's the game about again guys? Don't get me wrong, I love Rooster Teeth's work. Red vs. Blue is some of the funniest machinima on screen. But if the name of the parody is Angry Birds, it helps to make them more of the focus. Like these guys did. [youtube bMltvlqEM54]

Android gets booted into the HTC Touch Pro 2

There's a great video showing a user successfully testing a dual boot of the HTC Touch Pro 2 running on Android. The Touch Pro 2 originally came running Windows Mobile and Sprint users have been itching to see how well the little robot can work on it. Well the good news is, it's performance is quite sound. Navigating the screen works with snap, the hardware keys can go to home and turn the display on and off, there's also a power off option including booting back into Windows Mobile (though why would you?).

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo returns to the FCC

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has made a repeat appearance to the FCC in order to test WCDMA bands 2 and 5. These bands are covered by AT&Ts 3G service and could mean that AT&T is looking to bring the Neo to Sony fans in the US soon. The only real difference between the WCDMA version of the Neo and the GSM version is just the bands it broadcasts to. But since that difference is enough to warrant an FCC ID designation, both are listed as FCC ID PY7A3880101 and FCC ID PY7A3880100 respectively.

HTC Desire S Reviewed by Chris Davies

Our man in England, mister Chris Davies, has let loose his review of the HTC Desire S over on SlashGear. What he's found is that this 3.7-inch display having, Android 2.3.3 wielding, 5-megapixel camera toting handset isn't the best of the bunch, but it's certainly not the worst device he's ever held. This phone is the sequel to the original HTC Desire, which was undeniably HTC's answer for the Nexus One - will it hold up to the pressure of the barrage of phones that have been released in only these past few months?

LG Optimus 3D goes to the FCC

Another 3D handset makes it's way for approval by Uncle Sam. The LG Optimus 3D, which is being tested for GSM as well as T-Mobile's WCDMA bands, looks to be taking a sure path to coming to the US Market. The bands being tested include GSM bands 850 and 1900, and WCDMA bands 1700 and 1900. But with the AT&T-Mobile merger looming, what fate will it hold for LGs 3D phone?

HTC Thunderbolt gets rooted with a click

The rootability of the HTC Thunderbolt continues to reveal more gems as as XDA Moderator CaptainKrtek, with support from NetForce-TX, has created a one click method which, after testing, is pretty easy to apply. The method is a Windows batch file which runs the user through the complete process and ends with a rooted Thunderbolt ready to play with. CaptainKrtek suggests users still give the thread a good solid read just in case anything goes wrong, but he's confident that, thanks to NetForce-TX's testing, that the batch file is sound and works as advertised.

Samsung’s fake Galaxy Tab interviews scratch heads

The video interviews that Samsung showed during their unveiling of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 are leaving bloggers scratching their heads. It seems that the interviews, which depict a real estate CEO, are faked. Harry McCracken thought something was up when he noticed that the interviews show a CEO named Joseph Kolinski raving about his 8.9" Galaxy Tab. How could he have one when Samsung itself only had non working models at CTIA? But the mystery deepens.

Dell Streak 7 gets AT&T HSPA+ support

Dell Streak 7 owners hoping to use their 7-inch tablet on AT&T rather than T-Mobile have discovered the slate supports HSPA+ 4G on both networks. According to StreakSmart, after the T-Mobile USA carrier unlock is removed, the tablet's modem is revealed to support both 1700/2100MHz (AWS) and 850/1900MHz. That means HSPA+ on both carriers, as evidenced by the photo above. Unfortunately, right now there's no free way to unlock the Streak 7; instead you'll have to turn to an unlock vendor like UnlockStreak, which charges $49 for the hack. It apparently won't affect your warranty, and should take 1-3 working days to process.

Amazon Appstore offers app test drives on your computer

Amazon launched its Appstore not too long ago and Apple might not be happy about it, but I think most Android fans are very excited about the new store. Amazon has a really cool feature that it offers to let you play some of the games on the Appstore before you bother downloading them or paying for them.
