Awesome Sci-Fi FPS Game for Android: N.O.V.A. 2 HD, Now Available in Android Market

by: Darcy LaCouveeJune 23, 2011

A Gameloft original, N.O.V.A. 2 HD, is an exciting game, and it’s available in the Android Market now. It’s a very Halo-esque gaming experience, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and we think you will find it fun and intensely addictive.

Thankfully, it’s just landed in the Android Market, and for the reasonable price of $6.99.

Come on guys, that’s almost the same price it costs to rent a movie or two, and we think it’s a decent price considering how many hours of fun you can have with this game. Stunning visuals, fast-paced action, and intuitive controls – what’s not to like?

N.O.V.A 2 HD is an [...]

Why Apple Trembles at the Feet of Android

by: Elmer MontejoJune 22, 2011

For a time, Apple was the one of the smartphone world’s darlings. Tough, sturdy, seemingly impenetrable, unique, well-designed. In fact, think of any “wow” adjective, and that has most likely been used to describe Apple already. For a time.

Then came Android, and Apple’s house of glass started to crack, with some parts already shattered.

There’s only one precise word to describe Android’s growth: rapid. It’s precisely the rapidity that makes Apple squirm restlessly. Four hundred thousand (400,000) daily activations of Android devices as of May this year is, to put it mildly, a feat. Thirty six million Android [...]

AT&T Version of HTC ChaCha Gets Minor Touchups, Might Come Out on July 17

by: Elmer MontejoJune 21, 2011

HTC’s AT&T version of its “Facebook phone,” the HTC ChaCha, has been spotted on a leaked photo showing a face slightly altered from the one that HTC unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February this year. Pocketnow was tipped with the leak photo and was quick to note that only very little cosmetic changes have been made.

The AT&T version of the HTC ChaCha looks very much similar to the global version, and presumably, will also have the same hardware. Folks are hoping that it will also have the faster 800-MHz processor that replaced the 600-MHz processor of the HTC ChaCha version already launched in the U.K. and elsewhere.

Leaked Photos Show Sony Ericsson Xperia duo

by: Elmer MontejoJune 21, 2011

To date, most other phone manufacturers have either already launched their dual-core smartphones or have at least one in the works. Sony Ericsson is not going to be left behind–that is, if the leaked photos of the Sony Xperia duo are to be believed.

Late last week, phoneArena uncovered photos alleged to be those of the rumored Sony Ericsson Xperia duo. The “duo” in the name supposedly hints at the dual-core processor that the handset will be having. If true, the Sony Ericsson Xperia duo will be the first Sony Ericsson Android smartphone to bear a dual-core processor.

The first photo shows the front of the Sony Ericsson duo. The display is [...]

LG Optimus 3D to Hit U.K. Stores on July 7

by: Elmer MontejoJune 21, 2011

Picking Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy as exclusive retail partners, LG has announced that the LG Optimus 3D will start hitting retail stores in the U.K. on July 7. Preorders may be made starting today through Carphone Warehouse. You can get the smartphone for free with a 2-year locked-in contract with Vodafone with a monthly recurring fee of GBP35.00.

The LG Optimus 3D features a glasses-free 3D display (4.3 inches WVGA touchscreen), which means everything you view on the smartphone looks realistic and three-dimensional–and you don’t even have to wear special eyewear. You can also snap photos and record videos–in either 2D or 3D–using the [...]

Acer Iconia Tab A100 Sneaks into Walmart, Costs US$349

by: Elmer MontejoJune 21, 2011

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 has been elusive, at best, to many of those who were monitoring its whereabouts. It was spotted visiting the Federal Communications Commission early this month, and news began to spread of the Acer Iconia Tab A100’s imminent arrival. It’s now here. At Walmart. For US$349.

The folks at Engadget have been sent a photo of the Iconia Tab A100’s display tag, and the tag tells all that you will be getting for US$349:

Toshiba THRiVE Set to Reach Canada in August, to Be Named Toshiba Tablet

by: Elmer MontejoJune 20, 2011

Canada is a premier destination of Android devices, with three smartphones heading to where the Red Maple Leaf is. The HTC Sensation 4G is set to be released on Bell in July, and the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy S Infuse 4G are also on their way to Canada.

Add Toshiba to the list. Canada will soon be seeing the Toshiba THRiVE, which will go by a simpler, more modest name once it reaches Canadian shores: the Toshiba Tablet. Other tech news sites say Toshiba will probably rebrand or rename the Canadian version of the THRiVE, although it is possible that “Toshiba Tablet” will remain its name within Canada.

Toshiba’s very first-ever [...]

by: Darcy LaCouveeJune 20, 2011

Not too long ago, we held a QWERTY Superphone standoff – the Motorola Droid 3 vs the HTC Doubleshot aka myTouch 4G Slide. Well, we’ve got some more leaks coming your way, courtesy of TMo-news. Today, we present to you, our dear reader, with some excellent high-res captures of the yet unannounced, but soon to be realized, beautiful QWERTY Slider from HTC – the myTouch 4G Slide.

Bell to Launch HTC Sensation 4G in Canada in Early July, Giving Away 10 Units

by: Elmer MontejoJune 20, 2011

Canadian telecom company Bell confirmed late last week the arrival of the HTC Sensation 4G to the network “in the coming weeks.” A tip received by MobileSyrup, however, mentions that the HTC Sensation 4G will arrive on July 5.

This means that Canadians have roughly two weeks to make up their minds over which superphone to get: the HTC Sensation, or the Samsung Galaxy S II, or the Samsung Galaxy S Infuse 4G. The latter two are also heading for Canada in July.

The HTC Sensation 4G is expected to cost CA$550.00 for a no-contract handset. No info has been leaked regarding Bell’s price plans for the Sensation 4G.

Bell is also giving away 10 [...]
