Seems like it was just yesterday that we all were disappointed when we found out that AT&T will use Yahoo Search instead of Google Search in the Moto BackFlip and you will not have the ability to install apps from places other than the Android Market. Well folks, they’ve done it again. The upcoming Dell Aero, a renamed Mini 3, will be locked down as well.
Up until Sprint announced the HTC EVO 4G, this was the most talked about phone around the web. Since then, there has been little to no coverage on this device. Samsung is now making a conscious effort to try and bring this phone back into the spotlight. It is a pretty impressive device by the way.
With the anticipation building around the release of the first 4G phone, the Android powered HTC Supersonic, Sprint has just announced its plans to add 4G capabilities to more cities. This is a good strategy because it widens the appeal of having as 4G device to more potential customers.
Yesterday we let you all know that BlueAnt plans on bringing a headset and an app to Android. Today a video demo of the headset emerges and it looks quite impressive. Besides being designed for use in extreme conditions, it has a few other surprises as well.
Well, there isn't much to say about this yet due to the fact that nothing works. The ROM hasn't been uploaded either but the dev from XDA by the name of AngioNicholai has ported the Rachael UI to the Magic.
Yet another demo from Adobe, this time it comes in the form of live March Madness college basketball. As we all know, Flash 10.1 is not available to us yet on our Android handsets and it will not be available before the tournament is over.
These ultra compact phones are slated to follow the original X10. They are among some of the smallest Android devices to date. AT&T has been the rumored US carrier of all three, but these prices reflects the European market only.
With the recent release of Opera Mini 5, browsers have been in the spot light lately. This browser hasn't really been mentioned and that's a shame because it is one of the best browsers for Android. It has a new way off zooming with one finger; in fact it can zoom in three different ways. And there are a few other goodies are included.
The awesome Android modding community continues to amaze. One of the hardest things to do is port a GSM ROM ot a CDMA phone. Koush, has recently ported the latest and greatest cyanogenmod to the Droid. Cyan's Rom's are always near the top of the hill in the custom ROM world. This is a luxury that was previously only available to users with HTC branded phones until now.
The XDAndroid project, for Windows Mobile devices with (W)VGA displays, has progressed to a fully usable port of Android to a Touch Pro 2. Past ports haven't been as successful as this one, there were too many bugs and the build was not user friendly. That's now a thing of the past and maybe now all WinMo phones with a WVGA display will be able to load Android and use it like it was the native OS on the device.
