NFC business cards way back in September 2012. Coming more recently however, they have released an app for Android users. The app is called NFC by MOO and can be found in the Google Play Store. In short, the app will allow you to program NFC cards (or tags). The catch is, the release of the app would probably have made much more sense if the NFC equipped business cards were actually available.
wireless charging orb in the Play Store. Goofy punctuation aside, this is hands down one of the best battery widget apps I've come across and it's available in beta for free, or a Pro version as we speak.
Android Police. The same free running side-scroller action we know and love has been mixed into an arcade style Parkour game. It's fun yet challenging so read on for more details and our hands-on video.
Pelican who is known for their hard, durable, and waterproof cases for everything from cameras to rifles is entering the smartphone business. Pelican has actually offered a few waterproof "cases" in the past, but they were more of a bag or box completely protecting the device. At CES we learned they'll be offering actual every day cases soon, so here's a few hands-on pictures.
Ubuntu for smartphones was announced earlier in the month, and naturally, we wanted to bring you some hands-on coverage from CES. And while this is far from the first time we have seen Android and Ubuntu together, or sometimes a full install of Ubuntu crammed onto a tablet (such as the Nexus 7) -- the version of Ubuntu for smartphones is much nicer and much smoother.
Yota announced a rather intriguing new smartphone called the YotaPhone. As I'm sure many of you are aware, this Android 4.1 Jelly Bean handset sports two displays. The front being a 4.3-inch 720p LCD display, and the rear of the device enjoys a 4.3-inch E-ink screen. It's a neat concept and we were able to enjoy some time with a prototype unit earlier today and we came away rather impressed.
