Time to level up your Facebook for Android app up to the latest version 1.6.0. The developers of the official Facebook for Android app just released the update last week on the Android Market.
Among the new stuff you can experience with the updated version are improvements to the News Feed, video uploading, and ability to view Pages. These new functionalities are expected to make the app give its users an easier time to keep in touch with their Facebook contacts. Pretty much all the basics of Facebook are already supported by the app. For instance, status updates, reading the News Feed, viewing Walls and user info, sharing photos, chatting, checking in to Places, sharing [...]
To cut the story short, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is coming out some time before June ends or in early July, while the ThinkPad tablet has a specific release date of June 28 (actually much earlier than we originally thought). Both tablets are expected to have 10.1-inch screens.
The information about the launch dates for the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 and the ThinkPad came from a note that Lenovo sent out to subscribers of its affiliate program. The IdeaPad K1 will have Android 3.x Honeycomb, a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and 1280×800 screen resolution. It’s also expected to have two cameras (front and back), Wi-Fi, 32 GB inbuilt storage, and up to 10 hours of [...]
I’ve got custom ROM’s on the brain these days. Ask anyone who’s ever successfully rooted their device, and put on Cynanogen Mod on their Android tablet or smartphone, and they will tell you it has breathed incredible new life into their device, and given them full control over virtually every aspect of it. It might sound complicated, but in reality, it’s actually as simple as a bit of research and few clicks.
While the Asus Eee Pad Transformer has already received the Honeycomb 3.1 update, with all the refinements and improvements that it brings, Acer Iconia Tab A500 owners have been left out in the [...]
With the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi and the HTC EVO 3D arriving on Sprint this month, you would think the mobile carrier would pause for a while to take a breather. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Sprint has more in store for the third quarter of 2011. This Is My Next received an insider tip from Sprint saying that the third quarter of 2011 will also herald new Android devices on the mobile network–two Android handsets, in fact.
The first one is a QWERTY smartphone. Last year, Sprint launched the Samsung Epic 4G, and its successor is coming out some time this third quarter. The Samsung Epic 2 bears several improvements to its predecessor, except [...]

First it was the LG Optimus V that raised the bar in a big way for budget oriented, yet full feature Android devices. Today, we’re happy to announce that the soon-to-go-on-sale Motorola Triumph is going to take the new crown for “Best Cheap Android phone”. Featuring a large screen, and plenty of horsepower, in a delightfully sturdy and svelte body, there is no doubt in our minds that people are going to be very happy with this latest offering from Motorola.
What makes it cheap and why do you want it? First of, it’s going to cost $299.99, folks. Remember, this is the full, unsubsidized price – so no two year contract. The Triumph, as a [...]
Sony Ericsson has just introduced the Xperia Ray and Active, two high-end Android smartphones, including one that’s water-proof, as the company looks to turn the corner and make some inroads into the highly competitive smartphone market.Sony Xperia Ray

As is to be expected, it will come with an excellent display, and Sony Ericsson has equipped it with the same Reality Display with Mobile Bravia Engine as is featured on the Sony Xperia Arc.
As with other Sony [...]
A relatively unknown player in the mobile space, Imerj, has just dropped a little two screen gem on us. A prototype, it’s designed to be a hybrid smartpad/smartphone. Basically it’s vying for the difficult to distinguish sweet space of something that’s not too big, but also not too small. How does it stack up? Read on to find out, but remember folks, sadly, this is a prototype. Plus, couple in the fact that Imerj isn’t, say, as big as Motorola or Samsung, means that we have to take this with a grain of salt for now. Still – we’re excited.
Running the Android operating system (still unknown which version), this clam shell inspired [...]
Looks like there’s more than one company that wants your movie loving attention these days, right? Hulu, which i’m sure you are all familiar appears to be migrating over to Android, and soon. Hulu Plus has just announced to us that they will be offering their service on six devices to start, including the Google Nexus One and Nexus S, Motorola Droid 2, Droid X, and Atrix, and the Inspire 4G from HTC.
While some might say it’s not enough phones, we say it’s a pretty good start. Like any video service, they’ve got their head in the DRM (Digital Right Management) cloud. They have to do their due diligence to protect all that sweet content, so we [...]
