Before, we’ve presented you with a list of the best QWERTY Android phones for 2011, and most of them, if not all, are sliders. This comes as no surprise as sliders give the best of both worlds:... a large display and a physical QWERTY keypad, the latter being a rarity in an Android world ruled by purely touchscreen devices.  But there are actually many users who crave for smartphones with keys whic...

If you own a smartphone, you have probably become accustomed to having a wireless internet connection where ever you go. On the other hand, unless you picked up a MiFi (personal hotspot) or... have a 3G plan for your tablet, that same internet connection for your tablet or computer is restricted to your house, or in some cases, your neighbors house. But what if all you had to do was push a...

That’s right Transformer Prime owners, download your taste of Ice Cream Sandwich now. This was announced last night during NVIDIA’s press conference at CES, but it was not a full... roll out yet. As of now it is fully rolling out to everyone.

As if I need to tell you, but I will anyways, head over to the software update menu on your Transformer Prime and start that ICS dow...

net marketshare misleading stats

I’m getting really tired of arguing against Net Marketshare stats. Every month they post the same type of hugely misleading stats. But this month they’ve really surpassed themselves... in how much they are misleading people. There are so many things wrong with their stats, I barely know where to start.

Let’s start with the misleading tactic they keep using over and over ag...

google-office

Did you ever wonder why Google decided to christen their series of operating systems after desserts and sweet treats? First there was the Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb,... and now, the Ice Cream Sandwich. They actually name it alphabetically as a way to take note of the chronological order of their updates.

But did you ever wonder why Google does it? Really, it star...

quad-core

A few years ago, everyone got hyped with the arrival of quad-core desktop computers. While many thought that this technology would stop there, there were those who dreamt of incorporating these... on mobile phones. Thankfully, this innovation has arrived and as early as now, we are already expecting a lot of these phones to come out in the market such as the HTC Edge and rumored Samsung Galaxy S3Â...

android-permissions

Just last week, a report by ViaForensics said that Google Wallet was writing the history of user transactions to unencrypted database files. While we thought the issue was over, VF once again... discovered another Android imperfection—apps performing various things like providing shell access to its remote user! The worst part about this flaw is that it does not ask for any permission from i...

apple-vs-google

 

Android is going into Politics! Well, no… but pretty close. We just got word that Google’s Android has obtained the approval of Pentagon in an effort of overseeing the US military... to use the software. This is alongside the officials’ usage of the equally encrypted Blackberry.

However, the approval is very specific. The software can only be used on hardware which is already ru...

Twitter, a micro-blogging super site, has recently released a newly acquired security software for its Android platform. The new software is an open source platform that allows people to freely... use, share and expand their thoughts on the site. The software, TextSecure, was developed by Whisper Systems.
