Aerol is all about delivering the latest Android news -- fast. Ever excited about technology, Aerol loves covering all of the great budget oriented Android technology that keeps popping up every day.
We’re all familiar with roadmaps, at least in the tech sense. They’re the documents that companies use to indicate what they’ll be doing for the entire year. So it’s quite a treat for enthusiasts if one of them leaks. Like just what happened with LG’s.
The entire 2011 smartphone roadmap is definitely an interesting document and should get any fan excited. With seven phones lined up for release, it should get anyone with interest in Android phones excited.
First up is the LG K – which seems to be up there with the Nexus 3 in terms of how high-end it will be. It will be packing a 720p HD display and be around 4.5-inches in size. [...]
We first heard about Panasonic’s plans for an Android e-book reader a few weeks ago. The information was pretty vague and Panasonic was being pretty cagey withe the details. They didn’t even tell us the name of the device!
Well, that’s changed. Panasonic has finally made the details of their upcoming product available. Named the “Raboo”, the company also shared with us details about the product’s price and availability.
Let’s start with what the company says the Raboo will be packing.
First of all, it will run Android 2.2 – which is a bit dated but still serviceable. However, the Raboo will have no access to [...]
Everyone is up in arms about Captain America! Mostly because of the recent movie that came out. Well, let it not be said that Marvel Entertainment was lax in their PR responsibilities. They’ve just unleashed their first Android game which happens to be a 3D action game called Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty.
It works well with Android and comes with Xperia Play control support – which is a double bonus for Xperia Play owners.
So, if you’ve seen the movie or familiar with the comic book, you should know by now that you’ll be playing Captain America in this game. Set in World War II, it has you fighting the forces of Cap’s [...]
Mobile phones are fragile electronic devices that can easily get smashed or damaged by the elements, which is why Motorola’s Defy is such an impressive piece of hardware. Compactly designed, it’s got a nearly bezel-free screen and can easily withstand moderate amounts of abuse – even an unfortunate trip into water.
This makes the Defy perfect for anyone who’s got an active lifestyle – the price point is another thing that adds to it. T-Mobile’s access to it as part of its mobile plans is a good thing. With rumors of an upcoming Defy+ model, I’m sure every Motorola fan is excited. Unfortunately, it’s being shopped around with a [...]
Well, this is a bit of a surprise. The Windows Team have recently blogged that they’ve given developers access to tools so they can integrate Windows Live on several mobile platforms – one of them being Android.
For those not familiar with it, Windows Live is Microsoft’s own internet suite of tools. If you’ve got an old Hotmail account somewhere, then you’ll probably be able to use it, along with Messenger and SkyDrive. It’s looking to be a seamless integration with an easy-to-use interface. All you need to do is sign-up once and then you can have access to your Live account and have it accessed by third-party apps.
The big [...]
Piracy has been one of the big issues of the Internet ever since megabyte-speed lines and smaller video files were developed. Music and movies are the usual targets for piracy – mostly because they’re really expensive when it comes down to it. Which is why downloads are at an all-time high and media company profits are getting lower.
One of the ways that the industry has tried to combat this is to sue a lot of people. However, that just made the studios more unpopular and encouraged media pirates everywhere. However, some of them seemed to have learned their lesson. Digital distribution is the wave of the future and a lot of companies have gone on the bandwagon [...]
Diversity produces innovation. It’s great to have a lot of products in a competing market – they sort of encourage each other to improve. Here’s an example of that diversity from Hong Kong. Named the Sheng 708, it’s an Android tablet that’s got a removable battery – a pretty unique trait.
When you look at the device, you can see a back panel which you can slide off. This reveals a battery compartment. Most laptops have featured removable batteries, however, tablets haven’t been so open in their systems. What this means is if you run out of charge you will need to plug in. This also means that if your battery conks out – [...]
Well, those who’ve been hankering for some solid news about Lenovo’s Android products, here’s some solid info. We’ve known about these two for a while but it’s only now that we get anything solid about them. The company is making for it’s rather lax PR by announcing the release of two new Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets into the market, one of them already being sold on the company webpage.
The two tablets are the Lenovo Ideapad K1 and the Lenovo ThinkPad. What makes them different from each other? Well, it’s the fact that the Ideapad is aimed at the regular consumer, while the ThinkPad is target at the business owner. However, [...]
Our brain is the biggest muscle in our body. Like any muscle, it gets better with use. Of course, you can do it the normal way and study, but there’s more than one way to train the brain.
SPB Brain Evolution is a popular little app that has been available on Windows Mobile, iPhone, Maemo, Symbian, and Windows 7 for a while now, and it has finally arrived on the Android OS. “Brain training” games aren’t exactly a new thing, but it’s nice to see a comprehensive one like this baby on the platform.
So what exactly is SPB Brain Evolution? Well, like any brain training game, it is a set of intellectual mobile games that focuses on [...]
Arduino is an electronics manufacturer that’s made a name for itself by making a series of low-cost, basic, open-source hardware and software that are designed to be tinkered around with by students, artists, hackers, and others. If you’ve got a little skill in wiring and soldering, you can probably cook up a little device with what Arduino are producing. So what has this got to do with Android? Well, they’ve added quite a few things to their line-up recently that would be a boon for any prospective Android developer.
First of all is the the new Arduino ADK board which is expressly designed for Android developers – which pretty much maximizes [...]
