Dolphin Browser adds Sonar voice control

The best third-party browser for Android just got a little better. Taking a cue from Ice Cream Sandwich itself, the latest Dolphin Browser update adds a host of voice control features all rolled into a system called Sonar. Far from just translating your voice into text (which you could already do by combining the standard Android keyboard with any text field) Sonar adds browser-specific commands to its interface, allowing for more precise touch-free control. You can download the latest version of Dolphin Browser HD for free in the Android Market.

Google Music celebrates leap year with 29 albums for $2.99 each

It doesn't take much for the folks behind Google Music to throw a party. Just a couple of weeks after their romantically-themed Valentine's Day sale, they've put on a promotion so special it only comes around one year in four - lucky for us that Google Music is less than a year old. The Leap Year sale starts today, February 29th, and may or may not end today, too. Take your pick of 29 different popular albums for the low price of $2.99 each.

Less than one million Google TV devices sold so far

We had hoped that CES last month would bring better news for Google TV, but things only seem to be getting worse since Logitech abandoned the platform. According to Google's first party Google TV apps in the Android Market, no single app - including seemingly essential ones like Youtube, Photos for Google TV and the ubiquitous program guide TV & Movies, has been installed more than a million times. That would seem to imply that less than a million total Google TV units have been sold and activated worldwide, despite being available for almost 18 months.

Google’s MWC app panders to the obsessive pin collector

"See a pin and pick it up, and all day long, you'll have a pin." This bit of nonsensical wisdom from a famous author seems to have inspired Google's Mobile World Congress efforts, as they're releasing a second series of collectible Android pins at their amazing Mobile World Congress booth. If you're attending the conference and you're a proud pin-head, you might want to download Google's official MWC app. In addition to Android information and general guidance for the Fira de Barcelona conference center, it's got a checklist of all the new pins you can collect - and how many you've already collected.

Android growth continues: 450,000 apps, 850,000 activations daily

As previously indicated, Google's Android booth at Mobile World Congress is pretty amazing. But it's not all slides and pins: the company took the opportunity to interrupt full-grown tech journalists embracing their inner child for long enough to drop the latest numbers detailing Android's meteoric rise. First up, Android has now passed an average of 850,000 new phone and tablet activations every day - and that's just the number that Google keeps track of through its own apps and servers. It's a growth of over two hundred and fifty percent since MWC 2011 a year ago. Anyone want to start taking bets on how soon it will reach a million?

Temple Run for Android delayed till March at least

So, Temple Run. Easily one of the most-anticipated Android games in the world right now. Android owners have been waiting patiently (though judging by the comments on our previous stories, not too patiently) for months. And according to the game's official Facebook page, they're going to have to wait a little longer. The deveoper posted that the game is taking longer than expected to complete, though it's still coming along. The post says that it'll give Facebook followers at least a week's notice before the game is released - which means that if the notice came later today, Temple Run still wouldn't be coming until March 3rd. At the absolute earliest.

Malware apps spread through Facebook to bypass Bouncer

After some pretty poor publicity surrounding the security of the Android Market, Google introduced the Bouncer scanning system for a more effective means of securing incoming apps. Of course, that doesn't account for the ignorance of some Android users, which at least one malware distributor is taking advantage of... and using Facebook as an alternate delivery mechanism.  As a method of getting around the Android Market, it's actually kind of ingenious - in a sneaky sort of way, of course.

Dropbox incorporates automatic image upload into latest update

Much like Google+, Dropbox now has the ability to automatically sync your Android photos to your Dropbox storage account. However, instead of resizing your images like Google+ does, Dropbox will upload an image of any size. Mobile cameras are improving at a steady rate, so the ability to retain the quality of your photos could be very important to many users.
