Android Community 101: What is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Game Pack?

In what might appear to be a very similar fashion to their competitors, Qualcomm has today announced that they're working with gaming developers to produce an optimization program for console-quality games, this "Game Pack" initially containing 100 mobile games for Android. These games will all be optimized for Snapdragon-based mobile devices but, unlike Qualcomm's competitors, these games will not be limited to Qualcomm processor-laden devices. Qualcomm's Adreno GPUs in Snapdragon mobile processors will bring the top excellence in these games, but they'll be able to run on masses of other platforms from the start.

LG Revolution Review

Welcome to the Revolution! This is LG's newest effort for Verizon, the LG Revolution running on their 4G LTE network. This device features a 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel resolution TFT display and a single core Snapdragon MSM8655 1GHz processor, connecting with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, HDMI, DNLA, and it's got Netflix! That this is one of the most important draws to the device makes us wary of it. But behold, this is an LG phone and we've been rolling out with some rather impressive LG phones as of late. The LG Optimus 3D and the T-Mobile G2x were pretty excellent, how does the LG Revolution add up?

Pantech Releasing 5″ Android Device, Can’t Decide if it’s a Tablet or Phone

In my opinion a 5" screen is smack dead in the middle of the dead zone that exists between tablets and phones. While the Dell Streak used this same screen size, it was far from the being a top seller, mostly because people thought it was just too big. If you're going to get a tablet, 10.1" seems to be the magic number, but at 7", both the Nook Color and Samsung Galaxy Tab are great tablets. A 5" device though, leaves you wanting more screen as long as you're going that big to begin with. It appears that Pantech and I don't see eye to eye.
