Editorial – Ice Cream Sandwich, Bloatware, AOSP, and Everything in Between

by: Brandon SobottaDecember 21, 2011

 A lot of terms today are thrown around in the Android community that to some, may be a little confusing. I have decided to write a post that may help clear up some of the confusion for the newcomers to the world that we have come to know as Android. The first part (that I will not covering today) is the hardware our phones are built with; the processor, screen, battery, and etc. The other is the software that is on the phone, generally referred to as the firmware. Today, I am going to go over some of the terms in reference to the software known as ROMs, along with the benefits and drawbacks of each ROM. A ROM is an after-market replacement for the firmware that comes installed on [...]

Schmidt Teases Users; New Google Tablet Arriving in Six Months

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 20, 2011

Despite ongoing lawsuits, Google has confirmed plans to release a new tablet in just six months. The statement came as an affirmation of future plans of the company and it was heard straight from the mouth of Google’s Chairman, Eric Schmidt, giving the information to an Italian newspaper. The report is that they will be releasing a new Nexus tablet.

As of the moment, the Motorola Xoom still holds title of the first ‘Nexus’ tablet; running on a moderated stock version of Google’s Honeycomb OS. The Motorola tablet is also the first to contain the ICS OS.

According to Schmidt:

“In the next six months we plan to market a tablet of the highest [...]

MegaWords (Beta) Review

by: Brandon SobottaDecember 16, 2011

I am a HUGE fan of word games. So when I found out my next review was going to be a word game that I have never heard of before, I was excited.  Well, the first thought I had was what is Megawords and what separates it from all the other word games out there? Based on MegaWords little corner on the Android Market, it describes itself as “a multiplayer word game that combines the rules of Boggle and Scrabble.” To be honest, when I first read it I was kinda confused, I haven’t played Boggle in years and have no idea what the rules are. As soon as I installed it and started playing, my concerns where alleviated. It was simple, fun and highly [...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus hands-on and review

by: RandyNovember 29, 2011

Samsung has definitely been striking gold recently. Not only did they create the Galaxy S2, one of the best-selling Android phones in history; they are also threading new grounds with the Samsung Galaxy Note. In Malaysia, the Galaxy Note has received such a high demand. Despite restocking efforts by Samsung, the Note is practically sold out at this point of time.

There must be something Samsung is doing right.

Here comes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It’s a decent (and more affordable) tablet option that performs extremely well. We took the HoneyComb tablet for a review and below are the results:

Sturdy Built Quality

The 7.0 Plus feels solid in [...]

Netflix Shows Off New User Interface For Android Tablets

by: Matthew SabatiniNovember 16, 2011
Change is often thought of as a bad thing. However when it comes to new technology, change is one of the best experiences you can get. Furthermore, application updates are like Christmas presents to smartphone users. Netflix knows this and is constantly changing the UI (user interface) of all of their apps to keep their users coming back for more. And earlier today, they did just that.

Tablet and Notebook Redefined: Asus Transformer Prime In-depth Look

by: LucianNovember 10, 2011

Yesterday, Asus officially unveiled the Transformer Prime, and everything looks great and it’s actually better than you would expect. It shows that Asus really wanted to make this device as good as they can make it, and boy did they succeed.

The moment you see it you will be reminded of Asus’ UX21 Zenbook, and I was actually hoping that would happen. Extremely thin tablet+extremely thin keyboard, both made from aluminum and packed together – what more could you want? Add that to the fact that it will be the first quad core Tegra 3 tablet, will have an integrated keyboard dock for real productivity, and also the first one with Android 4.0, and we have [...]

by: Bern OliverOctober 28, 2011
Isn't it amazing how a simple concept such as additional tabs in your web browser can do so much to your internet browsing experience? This is especially true if you are more of a multitasker and prefer to do a number of things all at once.

It seems that Google is invading just about every electronic device little by little. Just last week, a guy named Chris H managed to port a leaked version of Google’s beloved operating system running on his Smart TV.

Based on his video presentation, Chris shows off numerous apps running on Google [...]

by: LucianOctober 25, 2011

Asus has already said a couple of times that we’re going to see Android 4.0 on the upcoming Transformer Prime by the end of this year, but what about their other 2 tablets, the original Eee Pad Transformer and the Eee Pad Slider?

If you’ve already bought one, then you can relax because Asus had put out this official statement where they say the Android 4.0 update is coming to all their tablets, however they don’t seem to give an exact schedule:

“Are you waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich? Good news for ASUS customers. Google recently announced the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, which brings some exciting new features and [...]
