cyanogenmod icon

If you have not heard yet, Cyanogen and gang have finally released CyanogenMod 5 for your G1/Mytouch 3G. If you are new to using ROMs, make sure to follow the instructions carefully, so you don't brick your phone. Anyone who has used ROMs, whether Cyanogen’s or not, also needs to follow the instructions as you will need to install DangerSPL which has bricking potential (unless you already have it installed).

It was rumored for a long time that Twitter would be releasing an app for Android. Well the wait has ended as Twitter’s official app was finally released a few minutes ago and is available on the Android market right now for free.

While this is great news at first, there is a catch - it is only for Android 2.1 and above. Anyone with 2.0 or lower will have to stick with their current Twitter app and wait till 2.1 hits their phones (I'm looking at you, Hero users).

htc-pc70110-wildfire-150

Well it is about time for another Android phone leak, it has been almost a week or so since the last one.

This time we have a new HTC phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the standard navigation buttons and also an optical trackpad. Everything looks pretty standard about this phone aesthetically speaking. As for the hardware hidden inside, not a lot is known about it yet.

Model name PC70110, HTC’s new phone has a 4 row QWERTY keyboard which, if you are coming from something like the G1 which has a sexy 5 row keyboard, is a bit of a bummer.

Last Updated: April 2nd, 2011

Details are being kept internally between team members right now but what we do know is that the CyanogenMod has been ported onto an iPhone 3GS.

Everyone is pretty tight lipped for now but this seems so far to be legitimate, as one of the team members has confirmed the port is working via twitter.

It was only a few days ago when reports surfaced of the Android OS having been ported onto the iPhone 2G which was crazy enough to hear but now the advent of CyanogenMod on the 3GS is almost downright insane.

Google-LabPixies-Puchase-150

Google takes another step forward in its quest to take gaming on the Android platform seriously by purchasing LabPixies. LabPixies was one of the first companies to start building gadgets for iGoogle and shortly after the release of the Android OS started building games and apps. Currently they have 4 puzzle games available on the Android market:

samsung-galaxy-s-150

If you are looking for a new Android phone, whether to upgrade your existing Android device or get introduced to the platform, pre-orders are now available in the UK for the Samsung Galaxy S.

The Galaxy S and the HTC EVO were among the biggest Android related announcements at the recent CTIA in Las Vegas.

Samsung did not hold back with this phone either, dropping some serious hardware into it that will make any Android fan foam at the mouth, specifically related to the screen.

android froyo
Last Updated: April 25th, 2010

I am not one to usually fall into the rumor mill and believe all the rumors that tend to circulate regarding anything Android related but this particular item seems very believable, especially considering it comes with some pretty realistic screenshots.

What am I referring to? I’m talking about one of the features so many people have been asking for since Android 1.5 was released - either automatic application updating or at least batch application update or both, and it looks like the former is on its way with the upcoming Android 2.2 update.

android_froyo_01_150

Taylor over at AndroidandMe released some Google Analytics findings yesterday showing a couple of hits from Android 2.2 devices, leading us to believe that Froyo is being tested as we speak. Taylor says this information was later confirmed by additional undisclosed sources at Google.

As you may have heard, Google has given each attendee of its fast approaching Google IO conference (happening May 19-20th) a choice of a free Droid or a Nexus One (us included).

HTC Droid Incredible

The date 4/20 is usually associated with things of mellow nature, and apparently some of Verizon’s employees or the shipping system itself seems to have been affected by it - a few lucky people who pre-ordered their HTC Incredibles got notices saying it would be delivered 4/20, and sure enough there are reports of these units being received.

What Is Going On?

It is a bit confusing as to what is actually happening right now in regards to the HTC Incredible.

Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-X10_150

As the title states, it has just come to light that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will not be getting multitouch as was previously mentioned. In fact at first it was stated it would not be getting multitouch, then it was and now, yet again, it is not and that is the final word on it.

It seems that some companies are really having trouble relaying information these days.

Final Word On Multitouch

Sony Ericsson's Communications Manager Harold de Kort gives the final word about multitouch and the Xperia X10:

Multi-touch will not be a feature in future updates for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 because the device does not support multi-touch due to her software and hardware configuration.
