The Android Market is the de-facto official apps market for Android smartphones and tablets, yet it is far from being an ideal place for finding apps, especially great ones. Unquestionably, the Android Market holds thousands of great apps–some are free, while others for a small price. Better Discoverability for Android Games The good apps, however, tend to get lost amidst a thick crowd of apps in the Android Market. Gamers, in particular, find it a great annoyance to jump through a lot of hoops just to find a good game among the 18,000 games on the Android Market. That’s one…

With its lackluster patent portfolio backing it against infringement suits, Taiwan-based original equipment manufacturer HTC is a sitting duck for legal bullets, arrows, and other awfully sharp legal objects. The latest bullet to hit HTC was a patent infringement complaint lodged by Apple against the popular Android device manufacturer. If the ITC rules in favor of Apple, the decision will result in the complete cessation of sales of the infringing devices in the United States. Apple filed a complaint last week with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that HTC infringed 5 patents that Apple owns. Three of the…

Skype just updated its Skype app for Android yesterday, and along with the update came support for video calls on several handsets. Skype video calls now work on the Samsung Galaxy S (requires Android 2.2 Froyo), Google Nexus S (except the U.S. version of the Google Nexus S 4G), HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, and Sony Ericsson Xperia pro. The supported devices are literally just a handful. Although Skype has been promising “support for more handsets soon,” no one knows the day or hour that defines “soon.” Apparently, “soon” is too far away for some folks. With the…

HTC-Sense-and-Gingerbread

At first, they said no Gingerbread. And now, it’s a yes for Gingerbread. Talk about the mixed signals that HTC is sending out to ardent fans of its Android devices–all within just 24 hours. Just this week, HTC announced on its Facebook page that it was caught between the devil and the deep blue sea over which to give up: HTC Sense or Gingerbread. The initial reason for HTC’s dilemma was the alleged memory limitation on the HTC Desire. According to the company, the HTC Desire only had 512 MB of read-only memory (ROM), and there’s no room enough for…
