Sparrow is a Gmail client for OS X and iOS developed by a five-person team based in Paris lead by Dom Leca. The app is quite popular on the iPlatforms, thanks in part to Google’s non-combat... in this area.

If you currently own an Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet and your gadget is not on the list of devices to be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich anytime soon or you just can’t wait anymore to get a... taste of ICS, you can now pretend for a couple of minutes or so that you have an Android 4.0 slate on your hands.
