Google is finally putting an end to the menu button which has probably been one of Android’s biggest downsides UI wise. They are telling developers to stop thinking of those actions that... used to be there inside the menu button, and instead use the most important ones in the “action bar” that’s in Android 4.0+, or even implement them inside the app, as many iOS develope...

PR260112

According to Strategy Analytics, a  market research company, Android managed to capture a whooping 39% market share in Q4 last year, or to be more exact – 10.5 million Android tablets... were sold in Q4. Apple maintained its lead at 58% market share, but for how long?

So what helped Android tablets surge so much? The biggest factor in this rise is definitely the Amazon Kindle...

FutureOfTablets_bl-670x248

LaptopMag has a pretty insightful interview with Ryan Bidan, product marketing manager for Samsung, and we can see what Samsung thinks about the Android ecosystem right now, and a bit about... where they are going in 2012. One of the more interesting quote’s I saw from him was when he said that Android 4.0 implemented some features that were in TouchWiz first:

So what role does...

WebGL_on_Xperia_ion_small

WebGL is already supported on more tan 50% of the PC’s thanks to every browser out there – except IE. And very soon we’re going to see WebGL implemented in Android, too. My... guess is Google will (finally) port Chrome to Android  5.0, and they will showcase it at Google I/O this year (an event that covers both Android and Chrome). But even if they don’t do that, I&...

lg-cx2

Last year, LG started pushing the idea that smartphones should have 3D screens, and they were the first to do it well with the parallax barrier technology, which basically shows you animations... in 3D on the screen without having to wear 3D glasses. If you ask me I think this whole 3D thing is mostly a gimmick, whether we’re talking about 3D movies or 3D screens, but it can certainly impr...

htc_flyer_ics

The HTC Flyer was HTC’s first tablet, which I have to say, although not too bad looking, it didn’t really impress, with perhaps the one exception of promoting the handwriting and... drawing features on it. But otherwise it showed how HTC didn’t really understand tablets when they entered the market.

First, it sold for around $600 in most places, and that’s with...

htc-desire-s copy

Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich is still hot and many are still waiting for this operating system to fill their phones and tablets to add more excitement and thrill to their devices. One device... that is still ICS-hollow and eager for some filling is the HTC Desire S.

Unfortunately for this phone, the official ICS update is still nowhere in sight, and there are still no clues on when it will...

real-ice-cream-sandwich

As they all say, nothing spreads more quickly than gossip and advertising through word of mouth. Unfortunately, the latest Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, was not given justice from the tradition... of ‘I know someone who knows someone who knows someone….’ Friends over at SlashGear posted an article about finding an article (unknown source) that says ‘a high-ranking set of names’ has release...

face unlock

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is definitely the most-craved-for Android operating system today because of the great functionality and style that it brings to users. Ice Cream Sandwich has tons... of features to talk about, but there’s one cool feature that you will surely be curious to try–the Face Unlock feature.

The Face Unlock feature is available for those who have Android...

touchpad-cm9

The HP Touchpad was a turning point. Everyone saw that there is a huge potential for inexpensive tablets that are simply “good enough” for daily tasks. So when the firesale happened,... and the tablet was being sold for $99, a lot of people rushed to get it. Many of these people, while they knew they would be pretty satisfied with webOS, too, what they really wanted was to get the tablet...
