Google Maps keeps on getting better with latest Android Maps API. Can the competition ever catch up?

by: J. Angelo RacomaDecember 4, 2012
Google Maps has certainly evolved a lot since its inception in the mid 2000's. But while the Maps web and mobile applications are important in themselves, a big driving force of growth and innovation for Google Maps are the third-party applications and services that use mapping data from Google. As such, updates to its API are usually something worth watching from the point of view of both users and developers. The latest API update for Android enables app developers to utilize more data with less effort, hence resulting in more engaging location-based apps.

Broadcom announces new single, dual, and quad core 40 nm chips with 3G

by: ŠtefanDecember 4, 2012
Broadcom, one of the chip makers you don't hear about all too often these days, has just announced three new products. Starting with the slowest one, the BCM21654G, it has a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9, it can support 800 x 480 pixel displays, and it has built-in 7.2 megabit per second 3G. Next up is the dual core BCM21664T. It bumps up the clocks to 1.2 GHZ, and the 3G gets kicked up to 21 megabits per second. Finally there's the quad core model, the BCM28145/155, which is a bit strange.

Ericsson seeks U.S. ban on Galaxy S3 and other devices in case against Samsung

by: Bams SadewoDecember 4, 2012
One – Ericsson -- is the market leader in telecom equipment, while the other – Samsung – is the world’s biggest phone maker. When the two giants collide and can’t see eye to eye on licensing agreement, as is customary now in the increasingly litigious world of mobile technology, the way to the inevitable settlement is to first take the banning request route.

by: AdrianDecember 4, 2012
We’ve known for a while that CyanogenMod 10.1, based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, is a work in progress. However, seeing as the first ports for Nexus devices have only been made available this past week, we would have never suspected other builds are very close to reaching nightly status.
