HTC to Use Nvidia Kal-El Chips in 2012?

by: LucianOctober 1, 2011

Could this be the end of HTC’s exclusive use of Qualcomm chips? In a recent interview of HTC’s VP of Marketing with GSMArena, he said there’s actually “no exclusive deal” between HTC and Qualcomm, and when asked what other chips they could use, he said “Nvidia or TI-powered smartphones and tablets are possible in the future.”

Qualcomm have done very well for themselves with the rise of touchscreen smartphones. They managed to grab TI’s longstanding leadership position, which happened with the rise of Android and the fall of Nokia and RIM (who mainly used TI chips).

But perhaps the biggest reason Qualcomm got this position is [...]

LG – Things Are Not “Looking Good” – A Critical Look at LG in 2011 and Beyond

by: RandySeptember 27, 2011

LG is no longer a foreign name among Android lovers. They have set their footprints in the heart of consumers — or have they?

The First Dual-Core Phones, Half The Excitement

The LG Optimus 2X was one of the first dual-core phone to hit the market, back in early 2011. I remember it well, as I switched from the Samsung Captivate to it. It was nice to handle and browsed impressively fast, but not without its own share of growing pains.

Initially, I was more impressed by the dual-core, dual-channel memory LG Optimus 3D, but that was delayed at that point of time, so I decided to settle with the Optimus 2X. It was generally a good device and very easy to [...]

The Post-HTC Desire Syndrome

by: RandySeptember 3, 2011

It was in August last year that I contemplated purchasing my first Android phone. At that time, I loved the HTC unibody Aluminium concept and I was totally sold to the HTC Sense coloured bokeh look. I became a proud owner of a HTC Legend.

At that time, the HTC Desire was also a phenomenon on its own. The HTC Desire was the cream of the crop. It defeated the iPhone 4 to become T3’s “2010 Phone of the Year” and propelled HTC to the top, with them receiving accolades like the “Tech Brand of the Year”. You could imagine Peter Chou smiling ear-to-ear, while Steve Jobs must not have been very pleased about the loss.

After the Desire, HTC decided to milk the Desire [...]

Netflix for Movies, Spotify for Music, GameTanium for Games

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 19, 2011

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 game that I’m sure no gamer wants to play at all.

To work around the app [...]

Apple Hits HTC Anew with Fresh Infringement Case

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 13, 2011

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 patents-in-suit were also used by Apple in its [...]

Gameloft Releases Assassins Creed Lookalike: Backstab HD [Video]

by: Darcy LaCouveeJuly 6, 2011

Gameloft certainly seems to be holding its own these days, and continues to release game after game of mobile goodness. While some Android users claim not be very happy with Gameloft not releasing their best titles on the Android Market, they Gameloft itself continues to court the best mobile game developers out there.

Still, we would like to see a world where the Android Market and Gameloft could play nice. Until then, it looks like those wanting to get the best games for their Android devices will just have to buy them on Gameloft.

Anyway, Gameloft has just released BackStab HD, and it’s now available and will work on the following devices:

Skype App Cracked Open, Now Allows Video Calls on Non-Supported Handsets

by: Elmer MontejoJuly 1, 2011

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 hacked version of Skype’s official app for [...]

HTC Switches Stance – Gingerbread Update Coming for HTC Desire

by: Elmer MontejoJune 16, 2011

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 both HTC Sense and Gingerbread.

And so, HTC users didn’t stop their barrage of [...]

HTC Sensation Soon to Come to AT&T?

by: Chit AgustinJune 9, 2011

Previously, T-Mobile USA  gave us the heads up that the HTC Sensation 4G will be coming over their network – :America’s largest 4G network”. That may sound good and all but what if I told you that HTC’s newest sensational smartphone will also be coming over to AT&T?  Based on what we know so far, the HTC Sensation has already gone through the FCC, and revealed compatibility with AT&T’s 3G and 4G bands. Also, it can support GSM 850/1900 as well as WCMDA bands V and II, ensuring its potential to function handsomely on AT&T’s HSPA+ network.

Other than that, it’s safe to assume that it would be quite like the previous Sensation we encountered, [...]

Big-Screen Phone Or Tablet? What Android Device To Buy?

by: glennApril 24, 2011

Tablets are a relatively new entry to the Android ecosystem but even so, they’ve quickly become a popular gadget to have. Being always-on and always connected has made it the go-to gadget for checking email, catching up on social sites and browsing the web. On top of all that, some versions can even make and receive calls, turning them into an ideal all-in-one device. Some of the models to currently out (as of this writing) are the HTC Flyer, the newer Samsung Galaxy Tab models and the Motorola Xoom.

Meanwhile, device makers noticed that bigger screened phones measuring 4.0 inches and up have been well-received by Android fans. Where once only a handful of large display [...]
