Linux and Unix users might be pleased to know that work on an Android port of Wine has started. Those who were attending the Free and Open Source Software Developers European Meeting (FOSDEM) in Brussels had the opportunity to see Wine on Android in action, despite the fact that the port is still in the very early stages of development. How early are we talking? To give you an idea, today we were shown Wine running on an emulated version of Android.
ported to the Galaxy Nexus, as well as the NOOK, but today the popular Nexus 7 tablet is getting a taste of webOS -- even if it isn't too functional. Check it out below.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus is beginning to get fleshed out a bit. It wasn't too long ago that Open webOS was first ported to the Galaxy Nexus, and today we're seeing the addition of a new gesture area. In other words, things are moving along pretty quickly.
Galaxy Nexus. Just a couple of days later we saw it booting on the Transformer Prime, and today, the source code for the Galaxy Nexus port has been posted online, so the open source community can officially go nuts.
webOS 1.0 running on the Transformer Prime. This weekend, open webOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith - who got the open webOS OpenEmbedded beta running on the same device, remember - managed to get Open webOS 1.0 to boot on the Prime. Even more impressive? Open webOS 1.0 was only released on Friday.
Kickstarter for OUYA wraps up! Are you getting excited? Square Enix apparently is, as the company has announced a version of Final Fantasy III for OUYA. This will be mostly the same as the revamped Final Fantasy III we saw on Nintendo DS back in 2006 (and later on Android), but with a few key differences. It'll also be available on OUYA from day one, so how's that for a launch day announcement?
Jelly Bean to the masses and their open source project, developers are hard at work porting it to other devices. Sadly Google's popular Nexus One isn't receiving the same love as the Nexus S or Motorola XOOM when it comes to updates. Don't worry though, developers have you covered and you can check out Jelly Bean for the Nexus One right now.
Jelly Bean, and in case you did Google's released their own Shazam or SoundHound like feature called Sound Search -- or Google Ears. This music listening and tagging service has been built into Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but thanks to a few devs from XDA can be used on all ICS devices and ROMS.
Galaxy S III is an awesome phone. One of the things that impressed us during our hands-on was the user interface. Samsung's new TouchWiz UX is as impressive as ever, stable, and extremely smooth. While waiting for the phone to be released we now have an early taste for a few lucky Samsung owners. When S-Voice and the full ROM was leaked developers started work on a port, and today we have just that.
HTC One S is a hot phone, but for those rocking the HTC EVO 3D you can now get a stable version of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the latest Sense UI 4.0 along with Beats audio integration for your 3D. This was first released back in March as a alpha build and wasn't very stable, but today its earned new life and is coming along great.
