Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 28, 2012

We've seen a few more hints at the future of Android today from Google's MWC keynote. Eric Schmidt spoke for roughly an hour on what to expect for the future of Android development, how Android will become even more economically friendly than it already is, and how Chrome for Android is already the most secure/safe browser on the Android Market. We should see Android devices reach the $70 range by next year. More specifically, he stated "Last year's $400 phone is next year's $100 phone". Apart from the keynote, Google's vice president of engineering for mobile, Hiroshi Lockheimer, hinted for Android 5.0 Jelly Bean to have a fall release instead of the earlier summer rumor. This is somewhat comforting, considering Android 4.0 is finally starting to show up on non-Nexus devices.

AutoCAD WS adds 2D editing, plans a lot more

If you're in the architecture, manufacturing, fabrication or 3D animation, odds are you either use or know of AutoCAD, the standard desktop application for computer-aided design. Publisher AutoDesk has a variety of Android apps available, but the one that's probably of most interest to CAD designers is AutoCAD WS, a remote viewer for DWG, DWF and DXF documents. The latest version (1.4) adds editing to 2D AutoCAD designs, in addition to GPS-enabled perspective viewing and access to files stored locally, on remote servers, email attachments or on the AutoCAD Cloud web app.

LG Optimus 3D Cube announced with 3D video editing and more

LG is at it again today and have announced another smartphone this week. With three new devices in the L series we mentioned earlier today and now the LG Optimus 3D 2, only they are calling it the LG Optimus 3D Cube. With dual 5 megapixel cameras and live 3D video editing this should be a pretty great phone -- if you like 3D.

LG CX2 photo leaks: Next dual camera 3D smartphone for LG

For those that thought the entire dual camera 3D idea for smartphones was just a fad and something that would quickly pass -- maybe it wont. Apparently LG is preparing their next flagship 3D model to follow up their somewhat successful Optimus 3D. Reports are calling this smartphone the LG CX2 and we have a few press images too.

GADMEI 8″ glasses-free 3D tablet can be yours for $199

First off let me start by saying I'm still not really sold on this mobile 3D technology even though I did enjoy reviewing the HTC EVO 3D. What we have for you today is really interesting though because it has some impressive specs on a full HD 8" 1280 x 800 resolution display all rocking glasses-free 3D. The downside is only Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board but I'm sure a few XDA developers could change that. Check out the full specs, pictures, and video below.

3D New Year and Christmas Live Wallpapers — Bring in 2012 with style

It's almost that time of year and we just have a few short days to go before we bring in the new year, swear off snacks or junk food, attempt to quick smoking/drinking, and all those other new year resolutions no one keeps after about January 20th. While I have a few applications for that coming shortly today I'm focusing on an awesome 3D live wallpaper for bringing in the new year. It's called 3D New Year Live Wallpaper and it's totally cool and has some awesome graphics. Check the pictures and video out below.

Samsung Galaxy S III may be rocking 3D — lets watch Avatar again

It should come as no surprise that Samsung is hard at work creating their next flagship device. With big hits like the Galaxy S II we can expect the III to be coming soon. After the beautiful leaked images Friday of the SGSIII we quickly learned they were fake -- but that hasn't stopped the rumor mills for what this next flagship device from Sammy may include. We are now starting to hear talk of 3D, more details below.

Sensics 3D SmartGoggles concept brings Android on board

Head-mounted displays haven't quite caught on yet, but they're sure to be the breakthrough product of 2007 2008 2010 sometime soon. Startup company Sensics wants to try a different approach than products currently on the market. Instead of releasing a pair of glasses as a simple screen for other devices, their SmartGoggles concept is a stand-alone unit, with a full version of Android on board.

SPB Software gobbled up by Yandex

A nice 3D interface certainly makes our smartphones and tablets look better and one of the firms we have talked about a few times called SPB Software is being purchased by another firm called Yandex. The move will see new 3D UIs coming to other things that Android tablets and smartphones, where we have seen SPB Software in the past.
