This week on Android Authority On Air we came to the realization that following the recent Apple iPhone 5 announcement, this very well could be our last Android based show. The pre-orders are in, we’re moving to iOS! …And then we woke up from that nightmare and realized it was a horrible, horrible lie. On a serious note, we did discussed the latest smartphone from Apple. It’s truly sad to see how far the device has fallen behind. Sorry Sprint and Verizon users, you won’t be able to talk and use data at the same time, something that Android phones on those networks can do with ease. There’s no NFC, the camera is basically the same, the screen is [...]
If you’re still rocking the the first Android tablet to run Honeycomb and are in dire need for some CyanogenMod goodness, the wait is over. Sure, the WiFi edition of the XOOM has officially had Android 4.1.1 since the end of July, but the LTE variant (Verizon Wireless) hasn’t had much love in the form of Jelly Bean, until now.
Thanks to Team Rouge and CyanogenMod, CM10 is now available for both the Wingray and the Stingray for your flashing pleasure. Please remember, nightly builds are to be considering bleeding edge ROMs. There may be a bug or two and some aspects of the device may not be 100% stable. Please proceed with caution.
Is this your first [...]
Today, Google announced that they soon will be discontinuing their Prepaid Card program. Since the latest versions of Google Wallet enabled users to add any debit or credit card, the need for Google’s prepaid card has diminished. As a result, starting September 17th, you will no longer be able to add funds to your existing Google Prepaid Card or add a new Prepaid Card to a new Google Wallet device. Come October 17th, the Google Prepaid Card will automatically be removed from the Google Wallet app. Have no fear, if you happen to have funds left on your Prepaid Card, you’ll be able to request a refund.
Additionally, Google Wallet now has new terms and [...]
If you happened to catch our attempted LIVE show last night, you’re aware that we had all sorts of technical difficulties. Our Hangout On Air on Google+ was lagged. We were getting disconnected, some people even thought all of our fan girls were using up all of our bandwidth. After a few failed attempts we decided to reschedule the show, a day later.
Fast forward to today, we went live, without issue. This week we focused on Motorola and Amazon’s recent announcements. Motorola announced the Droid RAZR HD, Droid RAZR MAXX HD, and the Droid RAZR M. The latest round of RAZR’s are pretty amazing, if we do happen to say so ourselves. Motorola is also [...]
Motorola Mobility has confirmed that the Motorola Droid RAZR M, announced earlier today by Motorola and Verizon, will be coming to the UK with a slight name change and a new processor. The UK variant will drop the Droid branding and be simply called the RAZR M. The Qualcomm S4 processor will also be replaced with an Intel processor. The form factor, including the edge-to-edge display will stay the same. And, the rest of the hardware specs seem to be unchanged (besides the basebands of course).
This will be the first Motorola-Intel phone to hit the market. Doing a bit of digging, this makes sense. [...]
The guys over at Android Central have obtained a screenshot from Sprint’s internal systems stating that the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G are finally getting Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 tomorrow. That’s right, Sprint’s CDMA Nexus devices are getting Jelly Bean nearly two months after their GSM counter parts received the over the air update back on July 10th.
The Galaxy Nexus software version will be FH05 and the Nexus S 4G will have version JRO03R, both are the latest and greatest version of Jelly Bean.
The following internal memo is being sent around Sprint as well:

Google’s Motorola Mobility has announced that tomorrow they’ll be live streaming their “Motorola. On. Display” event from Gotham Hall in New York City from their YouTube channel. We’re not entirely sure what to expect. Will we see tablets? Will we see phones such as the rumored Motorola Droid RAZR HD? Or maybe the Droid RAZR M? Whatever we see tomorrow, Verizon Wireless is involved as their logo is attached to the bottom of the flyer.
Rumors are heavily pointing towards the Droid RAZR M, the next smartphone from the RAZR line on Verizon Wireless. Current rumors peg the RAZR M at a 4.3-in. Super AMOLED Advanced display with 1196 by [...]
If you don’t know what IFA 2012 is, that’s ok. All you need to know is that it’s similar to CES…but in Berlin. It’s an extremely large electronics show. And, like any electronics show in this day and age, it’s littered with tons of mobile devices and gadgets. Of course we had to be there, check out our hands on devices reviews from IFA 2012. Naturally, this week on the show we talked about a few popular ones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the Samsung Galaxy Camera, the Archos GamePad (it runs Android) and a few others.
This week had a ton of major app updates. We saw an extremely nice update to the Google Play Store with [...]
