Here is an awesome list of 10 comic apps for the comic-hungry. Ideal for those who enjoy a healthy diet of graphic storytelling, not only are these apps the perfect digital medium for e-reading, but they are all free. Whether it’s Manga, American, Euromerican (?) or the underground variety, these apps a re tailor made for every manner of taste out there.
A timeless classic? Dig this: jjViewer was the first of its kind. Back then, it broke new ground as the only comic viewer app on Android. Quite a feat. It’s still relevant today and has a solid track record behind it.

Tablets are a hot commodity these days, there’s no doubt about that. As consumer interest continues to build, there is one simple barrier to truly substantial and rapid adoption: price. With new models arriving every month, Motorola Asus, Acer, and HTC are all gunning up for the pricewar showdown, which will likely mimic what happened with netbooks previously. Think about it – razor thin margins, special features vying for your attention – it all sounds pretty good right?
Speaking at Open Mobile Summit, analyst Richard Windsor articulated that tablet pricing is about to [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
As always, we work tirelessly to provide you the most relevant and interesting news to you, dear Android fans. Well, here’s some: We’ve been tipped off courtesy of TmoNews that Walmart has already started to sell the HTC Sensation – arguably HTC”s most tempting (non-3D) Android superphone.
While it’s still uncertain if all Walmart’s have access to this delightful piece of tech, we are certain that a substantial number of them have already been purchased. Some lucky folks have been buying it from Walmart for low, low price of $148.88. Plus, it comes bundled with an 8GB microSD card – not bad!
The HTC Sensation is an [...]
Oh Motorola, when will you learn? With companies like HTC going on the public record stating that their upcoming phones will be unlocked, it’s quite surprising that Motorola would release the Photon 4G with a locked down bootloader, but alas, they have. Seems like another case of talking the talk, but not walking the walk.
Despite the outpouring of support, and substantial number of Android enthusiasts protesting such practices via Twitter, Facebook, email (and more), as well as previous claims that more ‘open hardware is coming’, Motorola is releasing the Photon 4G with a locked down bootloader.Motorola’s Stance
“As previously [...]
We’ve just discovered that one of the more unique tablets – the Asus Eee Pad Slider – is coming to the UK in August, and will be dubbed the Asus 3G Transformer.
Asus has just confirmed that the new Eee Pad Slider will go on sale in the UK in August, although they’ve kept quiet on the price, for now. It’s unfortunate but we still cannot say definitively what this particular tablet will go for. Still, we know it’s going to come with 3G connectivity on board, and as such, will likely command a bit of a price premium. Furthermore, there are rumors that it has received a processor speed bump up to 1.2Ghz, but it hasn’t bee confirmed [...]
Oh custom UI’s, won’t you ever just stop? Apparently not. In a world of intense competition, manufacturers are increasing – not decreasing – the amount of resources they chuck their custom UI development teams. Why do they do this, you may ask? They are simply trying to define and differentiate themselves, and can you blame them? Remember – competition breeds excellence, and diversity brings choice. Both are good things!
Last week, Samsung officially announced what we already knew was coming: their first tablet sporting Honeycomb, with their TouchWiz upgrade landing later. Knowing how crazy you are about Android, we thought it’d be [...]
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, [...]
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. [...]
