Sprint has been on fire lately - the announcement follows hot on the heels of last week's Nashville 4G launch and the introduction of Epic 4G in the beginning of the month.

CyanogenMod 6 is one of the most popular Android custom ROMs, and for a good reason - besides supporting a myriad of devices, it is built from AOSP (Android Open Source Project), which means no extra garbage that normally comes installed by carriers and customizations/improvements for the people, by the people (the CM contributor community is huge).

Sprint has abandoned our beloved HTC Hero (it was my first Android device a bit under a year ago now and holds a special place in my heart) but the Android community hasn't.

This article mentions flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with this term, hit up our primer here:

CyanogenMod 6, a very popular custom Froyo ROM for a whole slew of Android phones, has given thousands of Android users something device manufacturers tried to take away - absolute freedom in customizing your Android experience. One glaring omission from the bunch is the Motorola Milestone, which Motorola decided to lock down way harder than its US counterpart, the original Droid.

Found at the top of reddit's Android page today is this comic comparing the openness of Android to the closed ecosystem of Apple's iPhone and iOS. It warranted an immediate tweet, but since tweets are very short-lived, I decided to have it take a more permanent place on our site.

Here we go:

Admit it - QR codes are useful. And cool. They allow you to instantly get any bit of information, most frequently browser or Market urls, onto your phone - all you have to do is download the Barcode Scanner app from the Market (or any other QR reader) and scan the QR image.

A Few Notes

  • it is quite big - almost 14MB, but it doesn't yet support apps2sd in Froyo. I'm sure that is coming later
  • the graphics, physics, UI - everything is very well done.

Wow, what a day today for Verizon's Samsung Fascinate! When it was introduced for $199 on a contract, Verizon threw in a 2-for-1 deal, making the price $99.99 if you buy 2.

Shortly after, Wirefly and Amazon Wireless both dropped the price to $99.99, making it a great deal for those who need only 1 Fascinate.

Today, the price war got serious. Really serious.

  • Amazon Wireless is now selling the Fascinate to new accounts at exactly $0.01, which is a penny over absolutely free.

WorldMate is a company that was created to make travel easier - easier to track, easier to book, and easier to keep up with from the moment you receive that itinerary confirmation email. WorldMate already has apps out for Blackberry, iOS, Symbian, and WinMo, and today it is finally filling in the glaring omission by announcing the official Android app.

Features

The most useful feature, to me and thousands of users of this free service, is the ability to forward those itinerary confirmation emails from any of the popular booking sites to trips@worldmate.com and have them automatically converted into a new travel itinerary, broken down into individual travel items.
