Wine on Android demoed, development still in early stages

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.

Dell waves goodbye to smartphone business

We don't see too much of 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. Little surprise there, considering that Dell is a PC maker first, but it has dabbled in the smartphone space a few times in the past.

MediaMonkey launches Android beta

We already had a smattering of 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. There are few reasons to use MediaMonkey over the competition, as the player's tagging and syncing features allow for some deep organization.

Android expected to cut into Apple’s tablet market share moving forward

There isn't any question that Apple's iPad line has been a major hit, but the time it's enjoying on top may not last much longer. 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.

Four new games added to Humble Bundle for Android 3

Any 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 3 for Android launches

The latest iteration of the 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.

Unofficial desktop Google Music Player available for Windows

Google Music is gaining momentum, and it's a great way to access your music collection. But one thing it's missing over the likes of iTunes is a desktop component - after all, plugging in your Android phone to your desktop speakers or going to the Google Music Website isn't always an ideal solution. Thankfully, DeviantArt user Victor Alberto Gil has created a desktop interface for the service. If you're a Windows user, you can download and run it now.

European carriers say Nokia should go Android

If you've been following smartphone news from some non-Android sources, you probably know that Nokia's Lumia 900 has made quite the splash over on AT&T. But apparently it's not doing so hot across the pond: reports out of European cell carriers say that their retail staff can't make a case for other Lumia phones like the 710 and the 800. Why? It's the software, of course - Nokia's gone full Windows Phone 7 with their smartphone line, something that's a hard sell for European customers expecting Android.

Splashtop Remote Desktop and GamePad on sale for 75% off

There's a lot of remote connection apps out there, but few have received the acclaim that Splashtop's has. The Splashtop Remote Desktop HD app lets your tablet remotely log into your Windows or OS X machine and control it remotely. As someone who's tried all the big VNC and RDP apps, I can say that it's surprisingly reliable - but perhaps not as reliable as its $20 price tag demands. It's a good thing, then, that the developer has put the app on sale for $4.99 in the Google Play Store, granting an awesome 75% discount.
