Android has a whole lot of apps in the market. That’s actually one of the many attractions that the platform has. Unfortunately, it seems that these apps are going to be a source of problems for the user. Privateer Labs, a mobile security research center, claims that over a dozen commonly-used Android apps can leave phones vulnerable to phishing and hijacking. Riley Hassell, the founder of Privateer Labs, has already alerted Google to these apps but has publicly refused to name them.
Google, however, is a bit wary about these claims. A Google spokesman has responded that several Android security experts are unconvinced about Privateer Labs’ [...]
Good Android tablets can be pretty expensive. While it’s easy to find the cheap Chinese ones, the really good stuff is usually priced upwards 400 dollars. The cheapest right now of the bunch spearheaded by the iPad 2 is the Asus Eee Pad. Well, that’s going to change with the release of the Vizio 8″ Tablet.
The name may not exactly be very original but it looks to be positioned by its Irvine, California-based maker to sell on the market, mainly through price. Right now, the tablet is priced at a hundred dollars below the Eee Pad – an affordable $300 at Sam’s Club and Walmart, while a bundle can be purchased from Vizio directly, with the [...]
Samsung and Apple have been at each others’ throats over patents for awhile now. The latest casualty in the entire mess was the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Regional Court of Düsseldorf recently decided that the tablet should be banned from being sold in EU countries, a solid hit at its marketing strategy.
However, Samsung isn’t calling it quits just yet. The Korean company is all set to appeal the ban at a hearing scheduled for August 25.
The big European ban is supposedly Apple’s knock-out punch for this round, but with Samsung not surrendering the European market just yet, it may still backfire on the company. This is because, according to German [...]
The Motorola Triumph is one of the better handsets in the market right now. It’s got a decent 4.1-inch WVGA screen, nice 2GB of storage, and a fairly reasonable $300 price tag. The main problem with it is that it only uses vanilla Froyo. This puts it at a disadvantage compared to phones that are packing Gingerbread. There are also several advantages that aren’t available to Froyo users, like a better and improved interface and others. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t announced any plans to upgrade the phone to a more modern OS, which is a pity.
Well, here’s some good news for Triumph owners. The CyanogenMod7 was recently ported to the Triumph and the the [...]
Google made Android 3.0, better known as Honeycomb, especially for tablets and slates and takes full advantage of its larger screens and more powerful chipsets. While many of the current Honeycomb tablets are of the larger 10-inch variety, Acer has bucked the trend by releasing the first 7-inch Honeycomb tablet. The Iconia Tab A100 just landed on store shelves this weekend. It’s been delayed a few times but it’s finally here folks.
So what does the A100 bring to the table other than the small form factor and Honeycomb? Well, the A100 is packing nVidia’s Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the CPU of the moment, and 1GB of RAM. [...]
When you think about it, the current generation of cheap Android tablets isn’t going to last long. First, the constant pace of technology is going to make them obsolete pretty fast. Second, others are going to be delivering a better experience for pretty much the same price. That’s why it’s no surprise that we’re starting to see the second generation of these tablets.
Archos has been selling their Arnova line – and last week we saw the G2 version of the company’s eight-inch tablet at the FCC. Well, it seems that isn’t where the company is stopping. We’re set to see some more [...]
When you think American football, you usually envision the green fields of the stadium filled with grunting, groaning, heavily muscled men. A popular sport, but it can be a bit difficult to get into when you’re not exactly the prime target for it. Mostly it’s because of the intensely physical aspect of it – the smashing bodies, the titanic struggles on the field.
Well, here’s one way of getting into it. Whenever football season comes around, it’s also time for fantasy football leagues to start up. If you haven’t heard of it yet – which is difficult to imagine – fantasy football is where you essentially manage a team: drafting, [...]
Vacationing somewhere can be quite troublesome. You wouldn’t believe at how much you have to do to actually have a vacation – sometimes, you think that it maybe too much trouble. However, a worry-free vacation is a priceless thing for many people. The hassle has to be put up with – however, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get a little bit of help.

The Galapagos line is a pretty impressive line of tablets from Sharp. The Japanese manufacturer has already released the Sharp Galapagos 5.5 inch and 10.8 inch tablets, but it seems they aren’t satisfied with just two. The company is planning to fill the gap between the two tablets by releasing the new Sharp Galapagos A01SH. It’s another Android tablet that’s got a decently sized 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. This can make the device a decent e-reader and a good media/video player for when you’re on the go.
So what exactly does the Sharp A01SH bring to the table? Well, for one, there’s no worry about being outdated. The tablet is [...]
Cheap Android devices are dime-a-dozen, but it’s pretty rare for them to go below the hundred dollar price mark. Which makes it a surprise that Skytex’s new produce has breached that price barrier. Called the Pocket Primer, it also happens to be one small device, clocking in at five inches in the size department.
There are already quite a few devices in that particular size range, namely the Dell Streak and some other recent releases, but none of them cost this cheap. The five-inch size range is a difficult product niche. A whole lot smaller than the seven- and ten-inch size ranges for such devices, the closest comparison to [...]
