50% Of HTC Phones Will Be Android In 2010?

Jul 22nd - To say that HTC has been a beacon of hope for the Android platform would likely be an understatement. As the platforms first true adopter (in terms of manufacturing), HTC has already come to market with a handful of Android Phones while all top competitors besides Samsung have yet to launch a single offering. HTC ...

HTC Click – Sponsored by Adam Sandler?

Jul 21st - Just received a tip from, what I assume to be, one of the writers from PointGPhone, regarding a few pictures of HTC’s next Android based phone. Just an initial review leads one to speculate that this will be HTC’s first entry into the entry-level-Android-Market. Take a look at the pictures, and draw your own conclusions: ...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 Android With Specs & Pics!

Jul 21st - Sony Ericsson hasn’t said anything yet but if the pre-order page on Expansys isn’t an evil gag, it appears the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 will be the first Sony Ericsson Android Phone! While admitting its status is “unannounced”, Expansys doesn’t seem to have a problem announcing all of the specs and details of the device. ...

But now, thanks to an anonymous phandroid tipster, we’re seeing the clearest picture of the Motorola Morrison to date: (click to enlarge) Apparently a Moto employee is already walking around ...

Android 1.5 CRC1 Security Fix (VIDEO)

Jul 20th - This weekend my G1 told me it was update time… only 884 kB so this should be quick, easy and painless! The only thing worse than wasting 10 minutes aimlessly watching a stupid bar slowly move across a screen is wasting 10 minutes aimlessly watching someone else watch the stupid bar go across the screen. ...

HTC Hero Unboxing Video

Jul 20th - This isn’t your typical unboxing video… for one because it isn’t your typical phone but mostly because the box is a temporary and anonymously white encasing for the mighty HTC Hero. By the time this hits shelves it will come in a much prettier packaging and the user guide/manual and standard documents will surely be ...

Official Google Voice App For Android Arrives!

HTC Hero (aka G2 Touch) Delayed Until August?

Jul 15th - We’re not sure what is causing the delay, but T-Mobile is headquartered in Germany and the HTC Hero rebranded T-Mobile G2 Touch seems to be launching at the beginning of August there.

When Will Android Market Catch iPhone App Store?

Jul 14th - Notice the “when” – I strongly believe that Android Market will outpace the iPhone App Store at some point in the not too distant future (2 years). Steve Jobs wouldn’t agree. On the iPhone App Store’s first birthday, Apple published a Press Release boasting about their 1.5+ Billion apps, 65,000+ apps, and 100,000+ developers. And ...

Acer Android/WinXP Netbook Coming Next Month

Jul 14th - It still seems a little wonky that Acer’s Android Netbook isn’t really an Android Netbook – it boots Windows XP as well. The company is doing this to marginalize the risk of launching a netbook with an OS that is unproven on this type of hardware. Unfortunately, they are passing the costs of that safety ...
