Real Motorola DROID BIONIC Finally Stands Up

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 7, 2011

After more than half a year of waiting, we can all finally sigh with relief, “At last! There it is!” The Motorola DROID BIONIC‘s final form has finally been confirmed through a Best Buy promotional poster/flyer sent to This is my next yesterday.

Pause for a while and ogle:

The Motorola DROID BIONIC has been spotted recently making the rounds at the Federal Communications Commision (FCC), and we knew that its coming was very near. The phone has eluded many who wanted to take a look at what delicious treats it has to offer, but until this poster came, all we had were blurry, leaked photos which seemed to change as the months passed by after the [...]

9 Ways to Snag Some Free (and Cheap) Apps for your Android

by: glennJuly 7, 2011

Apps are what make Android great but sometimes they can get a bit expensive, especially when you’ve already spent quite a lot on your device. So what is an Android fan to do? Go for the free ones of course!

Here are some tried and true ways to get free and cheap apps on your device.



1. Check out the free versions in the Android Market.

Sometimes you hear or read about a great app and want to get it into your phone. More often than not, the developer has a free version of that app available together with a paid one. Just search for the app in the Android Market and click on the app that says INSTALL instead of the one with a [...]

Microsoft Profiting From Android Again: Wants $15 from Samsung Per Android Device Sold

by: Darcy LaCouveeJuly 6, 2011

Android is currently the most popular smartphone platform in the world, and that’s bound to create some tension amongst industry heavyweights – particularly those that aren’t what you would call “successful”. Microsoft is a clever company, and drew the ire of the blogging world not too long ago when famed industry analyst Horace Dediu called Microsoft out for profiting indirectly from Android’s success by collecting a $5 royalty from HTC for every Android phone sold.

With Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 trailing extremely far behind, it’s obvious why Microsoft is doing this: money. Not only that, but it appears to be attempting to [...]

FCC Reveals Samsung Galaxy S2 With Tegra 2 On Board

by: Darcy LaCouveeJuly 6, 2011

I read an interesting piece not too long ago on the games that carriers and manufacturers play. Essentially, it’s not a game; rather, it’s business. While some manufacturers were initially hesitant to cater to the every whim of their largest customers, the carriers, others were more opportunistic, and as such, produced multiple iterations of the same device to get it on as many carriers as possible. Case in point, the best selling Android phone of 2010 – the original Samsung Galaxy S. This phone, like so many others, was rebranded so many times I’ve simply lost count.

Bringing us to today, we are now looking at documents that have just cropped [...]

by: Darcy LaCouveeJuly 6, 2011

Gameloft certainly seems to be holding its own these days, and continues to release game after game of mobile goodness. While some Android users claim not be very happy with Gameloft not releasing their best titles on the Android Market, they Gameloft itself continues to court the best mobile game developers out there.

Still, we would like to see a world where the Android Market and Gameloft could play nice. Until then, it looks like those wanting to get the best games for their Android devices will just have to buy them on Gameloft.

Anyway, Gameloft has just released BackStab HD, and it’s now available and will work on the following devices:

Samsung Galaxy S II Release Date for Canada Confirmed

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 6, 2011

Earlier we reported that the Samsung Galaxy S II will be arriving in Canada some time in July. That was already juicy, eh? But, here’s more: Virgin Mobile Canada has pegged the Samsung Galaxy S II’s release date on July 14, according to an internal document that a tipster leaked to MobileSyrup last week.

Virgin Mobile Canada is also giving away free units of the Samsung Galaxy S II as incentives for employees who can sell the most handsets within two weeks after the July 14 launch. If my understanding of the MobileSyrup leak is correct, at least 25 units will be given away.

If I were a Virgin Mobile Canada employee, I’d expect the competition to be [...]

Release Date for Motorola DROID BIONIC, DROID 3 Confirmed

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 5, 2011

For nearly seven months, we’ve waited for the coming of the Motorola DROID BIONIC. During those months, we were teased with leaked photos, rumors, and insider info that neither pinned down a precise release date for the DROID BIONIC nor told us of what it would look like. The more than half a year’s wait is almost over–the Motorola DROID BIONIC is coming on August 4 on Verizon Wireless, according to a leaked screenshot on AndroidCentral.

The Motorola DROID BIONIC has earned fame–or infamy, depending on which side of the fence you’re on–because it has gone through several software and hardware redesigns ever since it was launched at [...]

Two Ways That Google Plus Can Turn the Social Networking Tide

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 5, 2011

When Google launched Google Plus, the online world met it with mixed reactions. Those disgruntled with Facebook felt relieved and shouted their hurrahs. The skeptics, as usual, advised everyone to wait and see. Google die-hards lapped up the new service immediately. And, everyone else had one uniform thought: “This will pose a threat to Facebook.”

Despite Facebook’s announcements of “something awesome” to be launched tomorrow (July 6), Google Plus’s threat to the world’s de-facto social networking service remains real and imminent. But, it will have to battle Facebook–and most likely win, too–in two major areas.
