Samsung SideSync with their Windows ATIV branding announcement, but today we're now getting additional details. Samsung has introduced what they're calling SideSync, which will allow your PC and Galaxy smartphone to work together as one. It doubles as a backup solution, and can you even use your keyboard and mouse on your phone.
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.
Android app you wanted to have on your PC, then we've got some encouraging news for you. The folks over at Socketeq have released a piece of software they're appropriately calling WindowsAndroid. The biggest draw of WindowsAndroid is that it runs Android natively on your Windows machine, meaning that there's no need for emulation.
Dell in the smartphone space these days, and it looks like that's only going to continue. The company has announced that it will be exiting the smartphone market entirely, as it wants to focus on its Windows PC and laptop business.

Spotify news today, but now we've going to shift gears and look at an entirely different music player. The makers of MediaMonkey have launched an Android beta, so if you're a MediaMonkey user, you can now test it out on your Android device.

Android has been slowly taking away Apple's market share with a number of excellent tablets (the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 immediately come to mind), and that looks like it'll continue as we crawl toward 2016. IDC has released new predictions for the tablet market, and unsurprisingly, the predictions have Apple's share falling year after year moving forward.
Humble Bundle veteran knows that the games announced at the beginning of any given promotion are only the preliminary round. Like every Humble Bundle before it, the same holds true for the Humble Bundle for Android 3, as four additional games have been tossed into the mix. You'll have to shell enough to the beat the average purchase price if you want them though, and at the time of this writing, the average sits at $6.17.
Humble Indie Bundle has arrived, and once again, its indie game goodness is being offered on Android. As with past bundles, the Humble Indie Bundle for Android 3 (which is a ridiculous name) lets buyers name their own price on a collection of indie games. A customizable portion of your purchase price goes to charity, so not only do you get a handful of excellent indie games on the cheap, but you also get to feel good about giving some money where it's truly needed.
