The Andy Pad: A New “Avant-Garde” Android Tablet

by: Chit AgustinJune 15, 2011

Touchable technology, unveiling soon – the Andy Pad. The Andy Pad is a new avant-garde tablet running the most recent open source Android OS. Apparently, its features will “bring world of mobile technology to a new level” and it promises to rock the Android world. If you are a casual techie, a game aficionado or even a business-minded person, then apparently, this could be a good fit for you.

Currently, the Andy Pad is counting down the days of its debut which is at less than 80 days. In fact, they do have a countdown timer posted on their website. Once it has been launched, it can be had, apparently, for as low as £200! The company believes that the bottom [...]

New Malicious Code Found, Infected Apps Suspended

by: Chit AgustinJune 15, 2011

Lately, new malicious encryption and/or code – known as Plankton – was identified on the Android Market creeping in and around various apps, thanks to a security researcher.

Surprisingly, it was found lurking inside some apps associated with Angry Birds. The one responsible for the code was smart enough to run it as a background service thus making it tough(er) to be detected. Once the malicious code gets on your device, its objective is to somehow hack your Android smartphone or tablet and give an unknown user access to your device remotely.

The malicious code was first identified by NC State University Computer Science professor Xuxian Jiang. Plankton is unlike any [...]

MOTOBLUR Gone For Good

by: Chit AgustinJune 11, 2011

MotoBlur is, apparently, everything you want, all in one place. Motoblur is made up of various widgets wherein it fuses social networking gateways like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace and also other services like news and weather reports all in one place.

Yes, that’s MotoBlur folks. However, poor MotoBlur hasn’t been getting a lot of love lately, and for good reason. It seems MotoBlur hasn’t been able to make that many friends. Motorola has been forced to phase out the MotoBlur label due to public criticisms, and it’s looking like the good ‘ol days of MotoBlur are over. Goodbye MotoBlur!

Recently, Motorola and Sprint held an exclusive [...]

Huawei Introduces MediaPad, A Dual-Core Tablet

by: Chit AgustinJune 11, 2011

Some may not be familiar with Huawei, but it is slowly stepping into the Android world, and is working hard to introduce competitive options if you want to buy a smartphone or tablet at a cut-rate cost. You might have not heard of Huawei’s IDEOS S7 Slim before, it is a 7-inch tablet served with Android 2.2 Froyo. And, you might be astounded to know that its cost is below $300. Too bad it’s not Honeycomb.

Lately, Huawei appears to be cooking something up, and are apparently getting ready to introduce a new dual-core tablet that will be known as Huawei MediaPad. Back at MWC 2011, it was dubbed under the name S7 Pro.

The MediaPad is regarded by Huawei as “the [...]

Nokia CEO: Apple Created Android & Android Devices Are All the Same

by: Chit AgustinJune 11, 2011

Once again, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has employed the honorable act of trash talking in an attempt to dismiss the success of Android. Most recently, at the Open Mobile Summit held in London today, Nokia’s CEO tackled a lot of discussions. He said that Nokia is getting better and better and plan to become the tech-darling of the carriers. He then took a cheap shot on Android stating that our beloved operating system only exists because iPhone exists.

“Apple created Android, or at least it created the conditions necessary to create Android. People decided they could not play in the Apple way, and they had to do something [...]

U.S. Cellular Goes Big Time; to Launch Lots of Android Phones, Tablets

by: Chit AgustinJune 10, 2011

U.S. Cellular’s latest revelation will surely put a smile on the mobile carrier’s fans, as several Android phones and an Android tablet are coming their way.

The mobile carrier announced in a press release its plan to widen its arsenal of feature-packed, life-enhancing smartphones and tablets within the next few months. Most of the devices will come in the fall.

All the Android smartphones set for launching under U.S. Cellular will be running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. This is a lip-smacking announcement, considering that only very few devices from other carriers come packed with Gingerbread, or are still in transition to Gingerbread. It also [...]

HTC Sensation Soon to Come to AT&T?

by: Chit AgustinJune 9, 2011

Previously, T-Mobile USA  gave us the heads up that the HTC Sensation 4G will be coming over their network – :America’s largest 4G network”. That may sound good and all but what if I told you that HTC’s newest sensational smartphone will also be coming over to AT&T?  Based on what we know so far, the HTC Sensation has already gone through the FCC, and revealed compatibility with AT&T’s 3G and 4G bands. Also, it can support GSM 850/1900 as well as WCMDA bands V and II, ensuring its potential to function handsomely on AT&T’s HSPA+ network.

Other than that, it’s safe to assume that it would be quite like the previous Sensation we encountered, [...]

Android Malware Still Persists in Market

by: Chit AgustinJune 9, 2011

It was back in March when the “DroidDream” epidemic started to infect the Android Market, causing privacy leakage, among other things. The malware was implanted in repackaged, authentic apps, and uploaded to the market by certain developers. During that time, Google removed over 50 infected apps from the market and deleted the infected apps saved in many devices remotely to inhibit further growth of the malware.

Even though Google has actively implemented measures to eradicate “DroidDream” malware, it still persists in the market and infected several apps last week. Once more, Google intervened to remove these infected apps, and was successful in this regard. [...]

New Leak Photos of DROID Bionic Show Updated Features

by: Chit AgustinJune 7, 2011

Last month, Android Authority reported that the highly anticipated Motorola DROID Bionic’s debut was deferred due to various unconfirmed reasons.

Some said that the reason for the delay was to modify the device and incorporate enhancements suggested by the DROID Bionic’s critics at CES 2011. Other rumors said that the delay was necessary because the DROID Bionic will be brought to life in a new form factor as the Targa.

Since then, we haven’t picked up anything about it. However yesterday we saw some leaked images that tell us some of the reasons why the DROID Bionic was delayed.

All the looks are just about the same, except for the size of its [...]
