Valve’s Portal for Android port canceled due to legal issues

For all those fans of Valve's extremely popular and mind stimulating game Portal, we have some bad news. After tons of excitement of the possibility of Portal being ported to Android, and tons of progress not to mention playable levels from the developers it has apparently been canceled. This was being ported by a few genius developers out of Russia but after some legal threats all bets are off.

Portal ported to Android, the cake is not a lie

Oh man this news is just awesome. One of my favorite PC games of all times has been unofficially ported to Android. Portal, the popular shooter/puzzle game by Valve has been tweaked and ported with the Unity engine to run on our Android tablets and so far it looks amazing. While graphics are obviously missing and it can be a little glitchy at times this is a very early beta look at the game and we can expect huge improvements to follow.

Nokia N9 Ice Cream Sandwich port in progress

Much as we begrudge Nokia their wring (not to mention stubborn, deluded and more than a little incestuous) decision to go with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform for their current generation of smartpohnes, it's hard to deny that their hardware and industrial design is top-notch. Home Android developer Alexey Roslykov seems to agree, as he's been instrumental in porting Android to Nokia's underground favorite the N900. Now he's on to something a little more modern, in terms of both hardware and software: getting a full-fledged Ice Cream Sandwich port running on Nokia's drool-worthy N9. The developer tweeted out the phot below with the simple desciption, "Progress".

Devs, start your compilers: Peek offers free/cheap devices to hackers

If there's one thing the Android development community can't resist, it's a cheap mod platform. The Nook Color and (eventually) the HP TouchPad both owe their legacies to budget-conscious Android users looking for something to mod. The latest platform for cheap hacking might just be the Peek, a single-function device built for SMS on the cheap. The company is going out of business, but The Verge reports that CEO Amol Sarva wants to give the thousands of unsold units to hackers, hoping that "maybe somebody can build something great". At least one member of the Reddit Android section has the idea of porting Android to the device - a familiar rallying cry.

CyanogenMod 9 lands on the Original Galaxy Tab [Video]

While Samsung went back and forth regarding the original Tab and its possibilities for an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, that hasn't stopped developers from diving in head first to port the latest from Google to the slate. We've seen a few ports running on the original Galaxy Tab but today we have something even better -- CyanogenMod 9 booting up and running great.

Eager dev gets Ice Cream Sandwich up and running on PandaBoard

We knew the minute that the Ice Cream Sandwich source code was released, thousands of Android devs were hard at work on ROMs, ports and other projects. It looks like YouTube user pfefferzlinaro gets to claim "first" on an ICS dev build: he's released a video of Ice Cream Sandwich running from source on a PandaBoard, output to a monitor or small television. The build is extremely early and far from functional but it is, well, first.

Grand Theft Auto III coming to Android this fall

Ah, the simple joy of a city-spanning police chase culminating in a ramp jump over a train station, ending in a bullet-riddled fireball of fiberglass and steel. It's a pleasure that's been missing from the Android Market for far too long. But that will change this fall, when Rockstar ports the classic action game Grand Theft Auto III to Android phones and tablets.

HTC Desire HD receives a Beats Audio-enabled Rom, beats Sensation XE to the punch
