Pulse is one of our favorite Android apps for reading news, and we were delighted to see it make a good showing at Google’s recent Honeycomb Motorola Xoom unveiling.  We got a chance to see a demo at Google’s Android 3.0 event, and the app is very promising. Like other great Honeycomb apps, it employs “stacks” for the Home screen widget, which allows users to place their feeds and scroll through them with convenient flicks of the finger before picking one to read. Beautifully designed, the app itself has some of the best usage of screen space we have witnessed…

We’ve recently received a tip from someone who works at Google that the next Nexus smartphone could be made by Motorola. To be honest, I didn’t think much of it at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realize that it makes a lot of sense. Of course, publicly, Google has stated that they “don’t like to play favorites”, meaning they don’t favor one manufacture over the other. This explains why they radically jumped from HTC to Samsung for their second Nexus device. If they continued on this path, they could either switch to Sony, LG,…

ANDROID-IS-GROWING

Over the past year, many people have questioned whether this newer generation of tablets is even necessary. As “scaled-up smartphones,” do they serve a purpose? Are they worth buying? Many who have cashed in and purchased one have already found tablets to be suitable surrogates for their home computers. I, myself, have started using my tablets for most simple, everyday tasks, leaving the very few remaining, arduous ones for my home computer to handle. If it weren’t for this job, I would rarely ever turn on any of my computers. It all makes you wonder when the conventional PC and…
