Battery Tips from Sprint To Maximize Life On The EVO 4G

One of the few gripes people is having with the new EVO 4G is short battery life. While on 4G and medium to heavy usage, I’ve seen the 4G go from fully charged to almost dead in 4-5 hours. This is unacceptable for today Smartphone’s. It should last at least 8 hours or more if you’re not a heavy user.

Acer Liquid E to be Priced at $49.99 from Rogers

This June, the Acer Liquid E will be launching for $49.99 on Rogers Wireless. All you have to do to get this get deal is sign away 3 years of your life.   Off-contract, the phone will be costing customers $349.99, and that’s not a bad deal. I would opt for the full price rather than being stuck with the same phone for 3 years. As fast as technology moves, this phone will be dated by the time you’re a third of the way done with your contract.

Google Maps for mobile 4.1 adds Live Wallpapers, Latitude widget, more

Google have pushed out Google Maps for mobile 4.1, for Android devices running 1.6 or higher.  Among the changes are a new Latitude widget for the Android homescreen, the ability to set a map as the Live Wallpaper, and the ability to swipe through multiple pages of search results. The Latitude widget shows the people listed as your friends who are geographically closest to you, while the Live Wallpaper - which obviously requires a device running Android 2.1 right now - lets you set a regular map, satellite map or topographical map (complete with optional traffic data) as your homescreen wallpaper.  That map automatically moves as you do, using GPS and aGPS to track your position.  It certainly looks good, though it has the potential to really hammer both your battery life and data connection. Google have also reworked the way search results are presented, putting all the information on one page rather than splitting it across multiple tabs, and allowing you to swipe from side to side to see more details.  Finally, you can switch between multiple Google accounts on the one device, so if you have a personal Buzz account and a work Buzz account (or perhaps use Latitude with one or both) you can see results for either. If you've an Android device running OS 1.6 or above, you can update your version of Google Maps for mobile by heading into the Android Market and checking the Downloads tab.
