by: Aerol BibatJuly 18, 2011

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 Releases Android-compatible Board

by: Aerol BibatJuly 18, 2011

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 [...]

Baidu Steps On Android Market’s Toes

by: Aerol BibatJuly 17, 2011

The current trend of mobile devices depends mostly on the operating systems being used. Android is currently in a tight race with iOS. One of the main advantages of Android is the fact that its app market is more or less open to be used. There are, of course, a few locations where the full functionality of the Android Market is yet to be seen; one of these places is China. Well, Baidu, the popular Chinese search engine has decided to leverage this into a profitable lead; the company has just opened an online store for Android apps on the Baidu Mobile homepage.

China’s leading search engine isn’t exactly taking over for the Android Market; it just aggregates all [...]

Touch S1: China Delivers Another Cheap Android Tablet

by: Aerol BibatJuly 17, 2011

Chinese Android tablets are not exactly known for their dependability. Most of the time these Shenzhen-made creations are sold in Chinese and foreign markets are cheap tablets – which is exactly what they are. Don’t expect a long-lasting tablet, though. However, with some of the recent releases from Shenzhen, usually find a good enough product. The Touch S1, not to be confused with HTC’s S1 or Sony’s upcoming S1, is one example of their improving work.

Looking at it, it is obviously a bit bulkier than the current standard design. However, considering the plastic material of the chassis, it is [...]

Romanian Neura Android Tablet Set To Challenge iPad 2

by: Aerol BibatJuly 17, 2011

When we think about Android tablets, we usually think of products from China or Asia. This is a reasonable assumption since a lot of today’s production facilities for electronic products are based there. However, tablet are actually pretty simple devices to make and all you need to make them is a little bit of know-how. This is why we see quite a few other places trying their hand at making tablets. We’ve heard from Africa and India – and it seems Eastern Europe is soon to follow. A Romanian tech star-up named Evolio has announced the upcoming release of their own tablet to the world market.

The Neura, as the guys in Evolio have come to call their [...]

MagicTile Tablet From India Still Packing Froyo

by: Aerol BibatJuly 17, 2011

India’s one of the upcoming tech giants. The subcontinent is home to millions and, like China, has a growing middle-class that seeks the technological revolution of the first-world. Of course, since products made abroad are usually expensive, local manufacturers are trying their best to bridge the gap. EAFT has just produced an excellent little tablet – the Magictile Marathon tablet.

For anyone looking for a modern tablet, the Magictile is a good find. It packs the regulation nVidia Tegra 2 chip and 10-inch touchscreen. These put it squarely in the higher-end of the tablet wars – right up there with Motorola’s XOOM and Samsung’s Galaxy [...]

Cricket Wireless To Bring In Huawei Ascend II

by: Aerol BibatJuly 13, 2011

Huawei may not exactly be in the same pedigree as Nokia or Motorola, but the China-based company has been consistently putting out quality electronics for a while now. They’re not the usual cheap knock-offs either; these are honest-to-God well-made products that you wouldn’t be ashamed of being seen using. One of these sterling products is the Huawei Ascend. Cricket Wireless launched it as part of their contract plans since last year and we can call it a minor success.

Well, it seems that Huawei has decided to follow that achievement this year. News has leaked that the company is finishing up their work on the successor to the Ascend. Appending a “II” [...]

Update Your Android Market Now!

by: Aerol BibatJuly 13, 2011

The Android Market is literally the backbone of the platform. A venue for apps to be shared and obviously one of the big sources of income for Google on the platform, it has become the central clearinghouse of apps that every one needs. Well, shortly after a brief announcement, the Android Market is getting itself an update. It’s to be a rolling one so a few users will be getting it first, then others will follow.

So how to go about updating your version of the Market? It’s pretty simple – you don’t even have to root your phone.

First of all, download com.android.vending-1.apk from the appropriate sources. Be sure that they’re [...]

New Ustream App Optimized For Android Honeycomb

by: Aerol BibatJuly 12, 2011

Honeycomb users maybe on the cutting edge of Android development, but one of the disadvantages of being on the cutting edge of things is that you’re one of the first adopters – meaning there’s not much there yet. Honeycomb users have been facing the scarcity of apps taking advantage of the Honeycomb’s features, especially the optimization to the tablet form.

However, things are changing and here’s some good news for the Honeycomb users. Ustream, the popular video service, has just launched its official app. With it, users can stream their content live to the web for free and do so on a larger scale than before.

When you hop on over [...]

Another Cheapo Android Tablet Launched: the Haipad

by: Aerol BibatJuly 12, 2011

Last week saw the release of a new entry into the Android tablet market, Haier’s HaiPad. It isn’t exactly new but rather the latest implementation of the Chinese appliance manufacturer’s offering. It isn’t exactly that groundbreaking, with its most groundbreaking feature being a unique Android theme from the guys at DianXin OS.

The company plans to have the new HaiPad hit store shelves in August. The specs, although nothing to sneeze at, are not exactly turning heads. Packing a rather small 7-inch touchscreen, it is backed by a Samsung 1GHz CPU, a couple of cameras, connects via W-CDMA 3G and runs on the somewhat outdated Android [...]
