Gifts can be great. Especially ones that you weren’t expecting but suddenly realise you really needed. There is no better way to show how well you know a friend or loved one by surprising them with... something that they’ll love. Well this year Google has continued the ‘traditional holiday bonus’ scheme but this time, instead of giving employees a cash bonus, they have presumed that everyo...

It appears that today is a DigiTimes kinda day.  The Taiwan based site is now quoting the Chinese language Economic Daily News website as providing some new information from Peter Chou, HTC’s... CEO.

According to EDN, via DigiTimes, Chou says that it will have sold more than 1 million T-Mobile G1 Android based smartphones by the end of this year, which is right around the corner.

Over at the xda-developers forum, someone has managed to get Android ‘ported’ to the HTC Touch, (before you get confused, know that the CDMA Touch is commonly referred to by its codename of Vogue).... Obviously, this device was never designed to run Android, yet it appears to do so with little to no fuss. Sure, not everything is working right away – for example Bluetooth, GPS, and USB are still miss...

Users of T-Mobile G1 previously had two options when it came to stereo music: either abandon their headphones for new ones to plug into the G1’s miniUSB socket,  or to purchase an adapter in... order to use their headphones.

That has changed now, though.  HTC has gotten smart and decided to include the adapter with all future purchases of the G1. While that is a kind gesture, many...

Well, that’s the case according to the headline on the infamous DigiTimes website, at least.  The headline reads as “HTC to ship Android G1 phones to Asia-Pacific markets in 1H09, says... paper”, but the story, and the source it quotes, makes no mention at all of the Dream/G1 or even Android.

We’ve said it before; DigiTimes is a dubious source at best.  Take this o...

The guys over at Japanese site Tech-On have discovered what makes a G1 tick, shake, and connect by taking one to pieces. Inside... they found a pair of vibration motors, a sneaky antenna, and the same trackball that is used in RIM’s BlackBerries.

The engineers were impressed by the construction of the keyboard, and the c...

Well, that didn’t take long. It seems that somebody has already come up with a way to generate the unlock code for the T-Mobile G1 so that it can be used with other carriers’ SIM cards.

Unlock-TMobile.com... is now selling unlock codes for the device. All you need to do is give them your phone’s IMEI code (found by entering *#06# on your phone’s keypad). Oh yeah, you also have to plunk down US$23.99 for the service.<...

A team of security researchers that includes former NSA computer security specialist Charles A. Miller have found a flaw in the Android platform’s Webkit based web browser.

The security... flaw would allow a malicious website to install an application within the browser that could do things such as monitor keyboard input for login IDs and passwords when the user visits other websites...

PhoneDog.com is reporting on a rumor it got from two different sources that the HTC Touch HD will show up as T-Mobile’s next Android OS powered smartphone. The one source is some random anonymous... person, the site says, but the other source is someone they claim has a track record of sorts.

I think this is unlikely to happen, but who knows, really?

So far we haven’t seen any on...

According to an article posted in the Taipei Times, Ryuji Yamada, president of Japan’s NTT DoCoMo, said that his company plans to offer a Google Android based smartphone in the first half of 2009.... As a founding member of the OHA, this isn’t too much of a shocker, really. In a somewhat related note, Yamada said that his company will be adding “close to 10″ new smartphones to the...
