Galaxy Nexus injunction obtained by Apple in the U.S.

by: Chris SmithJune 30, 2012

A few days ago U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, presiding over an Apple vs Samsung case in California, awarded Apple a pre-trial injunction against Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales in the country. Apple then posted a $2.6 million bond – that’s supposed to protect the company in case the decision gets overturned in an appeal and cover for potential damages incurred by Samsung due to lack of sales of the banned product – and the injunction became effective.

In case that wasn’t enough bad news for the Android device maker, the same Judge awarded Apple another injunction against a different Samsung product yesterday. This time we’re talking about the [...]

8GB is too little? Four easy ways to free up space on your Nexus 7

by: Matthew SabatiniJune 30, 2012

Just as you’re about to pre-order that brand spankin’ new Nexus 7, you have to make the decision. Are you going to get the 8GB version for $199 or upgrade to 16GB for $249?

Coming from a guy that doesn’t carry a whole hard-drive of music around, the choice was easy. I went straight for the 8GB model and sprung for that sweet dark grey cover. But let’s say you’re a music junky and like to download all of the top new movies, apps, and games. The 8GB on the base Nexus 7 model can get crowded fast, and unfortunately, there’s no SD card slot to extend the storage.

There are a few steps you can take to [...]

HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE teased on Twitter, to be released next week

by: AdrianJune 30, 2012

Verizon and HTC’s Droid Incredible 4G LTE was initially rumored to be released a couple of months ago, but unfortunately, the phone’s launch was pushed back several times. However, the future 4-incher is not yet dead in the water, and, after picking up on a leak that pointed towards a July 5 release date a couple of days ago, HTC pretty much confirmed the information on Twitter.

“Next week, we’ve got some special fun headed your way. We hear it’s going to be INCREDIBLE. “said one of HTC USA’s tweets from earlier today. Hmm, what could that “special fun” possibly be? Well, a new “Incredible Hulk” movie seems out of the question, the new Spider-Man is only “amazing”, so [...]

Samsung Jelly Bean upgrade status still unknown, company says we’ll know soon

by: Chris SmithJune 30, 2012

After HTC released a vague statement yesterday in order to address potential Jelly Bean upgrade concerns regarding its smartphone models capable to receive the update, it’s now Samsung’s turn to dazzle us with a similar statement.

And the South Korean Android device maker isn’t saying much either. Here’s the statement it released to PocketNow:

Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy [...]

Orange France plans nationwide NFC SIM rollout

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 30, 2012

NFC (Near Field Communication) technology has a lot of potential. We’ve so far seen it used for automated payment systems using  mobile phones or credit cards with NFC chips, and, on a more basic level, for sharing content across devices. But let’s be honest, use of the NFC technology has failed to match up to expectations.

To date, we’ve seen NFC chips used as a part of device hardware introduced by manufacturers, but Orange France has decided to go a completely different route. To ensure large-scale availability of the NFC feature, Orange will be rolling out NFC SIM cards across France, and will cover all of its 27 million subscribers. With the [...]

Gmail boasts over 425 million active users

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 30, 2012

The keynote address on Day 2 of Google I/O was another interesting, information-filled presentation, ending with a behind-the-scenes look at the Project Glass demo from Day 1. During the keynote, Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice President of Chrome and Apps, announced that Gmail currently has around 425 million users.

Gmail, Google’s cloud-based email client, was first launched back in 2004 and we’ve seen Google applications grow and expand further, to include the most-recently launched Google Drive. As explained by Sundar, “hundreds of millions of people have gone Google.”

He goes on to add that, apart from individuals, there is also an [...]

Chrome arrives (crippled) on iOS. Even so, it becomes the #1 free app in the App Store within a day

by: LucianJune 30, 2012

The stable version of Chrome has finally arrived on the Play Store a couple of days ago, but Google has also made Chrome available for the iOS platform the next day.

Within a day, Chrome for iOS managed to become the most installed application in Apple’s store. This probably surprised some, but considering that Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world (not counting IE7, IE8 and IE9 in aggregate), and has  310 million users, it’s guaranteed to have a lot of Apple users who also love using Chrome, so they wanted to try it out as soon as possible.

Unfortunately for iOS users interested in Chrome, they get to experience once again how [...]

by: Bams SadewoJune 29, 2012

Lost your invitation to Google I/O conference? Fret not fellow Android enthusiasts, because you can now watch video of the conference’s first day keynote online right from your parents’ basement. The first day of the conference, of course, was when all the cool announcements were made.  One by one, Google executives did their thing to enthrall the 6,000 something audience. And we dare say they did an excellent job at keeping the event exciting throughout.

Here are some highlights of what happened on day 1 (not necessarily in the right order):

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean revealed Google Now is a serious Siri competitor Google Glass Explorer Edition goes for [...]

Google’s Chrome Experiments to arrive on mobile devices

by: LucianJune 29, 2012

Google has made the Chrome Experiments site to allow developers to showcase their HTML5 demos, where they’re made with Javascript, CSS or even WebGL. These demos are meant not only to show what you can do with Chrome, which has very fast Javascript and WebGL performance, as well as very good HTML5 support, but also so developers can push the envelope with their creations, and push Chrome’s developers to make it even faster.

I think this is why Google is bringing Chrome Experiments to the mobile version as well. They want to show the world what the Chrome browser on Android can do, and in the same time they also want developers to make projects that are as [...]
