Seemingly out of nowhere Vonage has just entered the Android game. Usually when a company as big as Vonage has plans of introducing a new app there is some sort of press release or even beta testing before hand. Not Vonage, today they released and Android app that is only available for T-Mobile and AT&T Android based handsets.
We're all aware of AT&T's recent Android releases with certain Google apps removed or replaced. These are the most restricted Android devices on the market today. Orange may be following suit with their upcoming Android devices. Google Maps, Youtube, Gmail, Gtalk and possibly Search too will all be removed in their devices.
After many delays, Spring Designs are finally ready to release the Alex eReader. This device gained popularity at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, but issues with e-commerce website delayed its release. You can't have an eReader without eBooks. Spring Designs has two content partners for the Alex in Google Books and Borders. Orders placed today will take up to four weeks to be delivered. Its ability to offer content in Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Korean and Hebrew is contributing to this delay.
This may revitalize the use of landlines. Today, most of us use our mobile devices exclusively for our telecommunications needs. Personally I haven't used my landline in years, it’s just there as a backup. This home unit is a beauty and nobody will ever know it’s a landline (unless you take it too far and it drops your call). Tons of specs are after the break.
GWVectra has incorporated Android into this unit dubbed, "In-Vehicle Computing Platform" or ICP. This in-dash unit is capable of running Android apps right from the dashboard of your vehicle.
This hybrid of a traditional e-reader and netbook can be yours. It's powered by Android and can handle internet, ebooks, games, music, videos and notes. Shipment starts within the next few weeks and comes in a variety of different colors.
iVdopia is a mobile advertising platform which debuted on the iPhone 3G in March of 2009. If you thought the occasional banner ad popping up in your app was annoying, your gonna really hate this. Mobile ad giant iVdopia is bringing its video-serving advert formats to Android.
Earlier today I discussed the possibility of this phone being on multiple carriers around the world. T-Mobile UK is slated for a March 26th release. Not to be out done Orange has announced their plans for the Desire that includes a free offering for certain plans.
I'll let the announcement speak for itself:
The phone we originally known as the Bravo has been officially named the Desire by HTC is the hottest phone around the internet and now their are a few rumblings around that the first carrier to offer this phone is T-Mobile UK.
Acers newest member to enter their Android lineup will be call the Liquid E. This is a beautiful device and it will be powered by Android 2.1 and will feature an Qualcomm 8250 768 MHz Snapdragon processor.
