Is OS fragmentation an avoidable inconvenience or Android’s greatest strength?

by: Robert TriggsMay 2, 2013
With 38.5% of Android users still running Gingerbread is it time to re-consider the fragmented Android ecosystem, or is the OS stronger than ever due to a wide range of supported devices?

Fourth-gen Google Nexus smartphone coming by the end of the year?

by: Chris SmithJuly 17, 2012


The Google Nexus 7 is out in stores and it’s selling like hot cakes. We’ve seen this happen before when the Kindle Fire was launched – an affordable device ready to offer plenty of features and lots of digital content choices to tablet buyers. But now the Nexus 7 is the king of 7-inch tablets, considering what it has to offer in terms of both hardware and software. Sure, Amazon will come out with a new Kindle Fire version, and Apple is rumored to bring out of hiding its 7.85-inch iPad Mini later this year, at which point the competition in the small affordable tablet business will get even more ferocious.

And don’t think that other Android [...]

Latest Android Distribution chart confirms slow, but steady progress for ICS, now holding 7% market share

by: AdrianJune 4, 2012

It’s the beginning of a new month, and Android lovers all know what that means. Google has updated its Android Distribution chart to show data collected during the last two weeks of May, and, while there aren’t major changes to report compared with the chart from last month, we are glad to see ICS steadily growing.

The latest (and greatest, say some) version of Android now powers 7% of all Google-based devices, up from 4.9% a month ago. Back in April, Android 4.0 only had 2.9% market share, so we can say the share of the latest version of Android has doubled in less than 60 days.

On the other hand, we still have to notice that ICS is advancing very, very slowly, [...]

ICS growing, show stats, but still just a faint blip on the radar. Gingerbread still rules

by: Bams SadewoApril 3, 2012

Another month, another set of statistics revealed by Google for us to ogle and scrutinize. So, which Android platform is ruling the universe, and which is heading straight to the black hole? Here’s a spoiler, there’s really no significant shake-up from last month. Let’s work our way down from the top and analyze the Android platform distribution chart among Android devices owners that have accessed Google Play for the 2-week period ending April 2, 2012.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread is still the most popular Android flavor around, securing a 63% share. Taking second place is Android 2.2 Froyo with 23.1%. About 6% of Android owners are still using Android 2.1 Éclair, enough [...]

Gingerbread Is Still Most Popular Android Flavor, ICS Lags Way Behind

by: Bams SadewoMarch 7, 2012

Google has never been the one to shy away from releasing data of active Android devices and of their respective Android versions. In fact, the Android OS distribution data is updated every fortnight on the company’s developer page. Reported first by Mobile Syrup, here’s the latest data for the week ending of March 5. You won’t find any surprises, since the outcome is one that is rather predictable.

No drum rolls required here — at 62 percent, Gingerbread still reigns supreme as the dominating flavor in the Android space. That’s not the case with Ice Cream Sandwich, as the latest version of Android still gets little love from users and manufacturers. The [...]

Pierre Cardin Android Tablet Not Exactly Up-To-Snuff

by: Aerol BibatAugust 6, 2011

When you really need a fashion statement to be made, you’re not exactly reaching for your tablet. Well, it seems Pierre Cardin is planning to change that. Although the French fashion company maybe facing a few technical stumbling blocks.

The second Android tablet from the company, the Pierre Cardin PC-7006 tablet is touted as the “UK’s first designer tablet.”

A 7-inch tablet that looks pretty enough, it’s probably not going to be an iPad killer. Powered by a Samsung Cortex A8 CPU, it runs at a respectable 1GHz, but unfortunately is saddled with Android 2.2. Yes, Froyo is in the driver seat for this one to the detriment of any purchaser. The tablets [...]

Romanian Neura Android Tablet Set To Challenge iPad 2

by: Aerol BibatJuly 17, 2011

When we think about Android tablets, we usually think of products from China or Asia. This is a reasonable assumption since a lot of today’s production facilities for electronic products are based there. However, tablet are actually pretty simple devices to make and all you need to make them is a little bit of know-how. This is why we see quite a few other places trying their hand at making tablets. We’ve heard from Africa and India – and it seems Eastern Europe is soon to follow. A Romanian tech star-up named Evolio has announced the upcoming release of their own tablet to the world market.

The Neura, as the guys in Evolio have come to call their [...]

Dual-booting ViewPad 10’s Android 2.2 Upgrade: A Perfect Marriage of Work and Leisure

by: glennMay 6, 2011

Picture this. Superb entertainment combined with cutting- edge business apps to suit the working professional’s dynamic, on-the-go lifestyle. Seems surreal? Well, it’s no longer as far- fetched as you think.

The dual-booting ViewSonic ViewPad 10 just got an upgrade to Android 2.2. This means a refined zoom feature for the 1.3 megapixel built-in camera, built-in Twitter and a widget that makes it convenient for you to dial and to browse. And the Froyo upgrade also means better Flash and multitasking features.

Apart from the Google Android apps (and the Gmail, Calendar, Youtube apps), you can also run Windows 7 applications (Adobe Acrobat, Word, Excel, [...]
