Earlier today, Samsung made available the kernel source code for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II -- the latest of many source releases from Sammy. Of course, if you're not into developing, hacking, or modding Sammy phones, this sort of thing is of little value to you. However, if Moto is your flavor, and you want to make a beastly phone a bit more beastly, listen up: Motorola just released the Bionic source.
If you already use Remember the Milk to handle your todo lists, then there's a good chance you already know about this update. If you're not currently using RtM, though, then maybe it's time to give it another look.
The latest update brings an enhanced interface for more intuitive task management, as well as some new features and widgets. The updated app also includes another major change: it's now free for everyone.
We've already seen the source for the AT&T Galaxy S II, the Epic 4G Touch, and a handful of other new devices, so why not throw T-Mo's Galaxy S II into the mix? Sammy dropped the code earlier today -- hit the link below to download it. Let's see how fast that Snapdragon will actually run, gents.
So, do you want to see how the Galaxy S II compares to the iPhone 4S when dropped directly onto concrete? Yeah, we thought you might -- and you you may actually be surprised at the results. Before you watch the video, though, I must warn you: watching these electronics plummet to their (presumed) demise can be a bit cringe inducing, even to not-so-squeamish among us. With that caveat out of the way, have a look at the video:
Pretty impressive, no?
Yesterday, we took a look at Riptide GP for Tegra devices with the addition of controller support. To celebrate the update and all the fun that adding a controller to your Tegra tablet can bring, we've once again teamed up with NVIDIA to bring our most massive giveaway yet: The Riptide Gaming Power Pack.
Just take a look of all that is in store for the winner:
How many times has this happened to you: you're getting ready to flash a new ROM, so you drop in on the SD Card, reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery, do a Nandroid backup, and proceed with the installation, only to realize that you forgot to backup your apps. That has happened to me more times than I care to count, and flashing a backup just to do a Titanium Backup is insanely tedious.
Are you ready for some Friday morning source code? Even if you're not, Samsung thinks you should be -- it just released the source for three new phones to its Open Source Developer Center. The three phones in question are the Stratosphere on Verizon, the Transfix on Cricket Wireless, and the still-unreleased Galaxy Y Pro.
Sure, these three phones aren't powerhouses by any stretch of the imagination, but at least this source can be used to pull every last drop of capability out of them.
Motorola is resurrecting the world's first Honeycomb tablet one last time before the next generation of XOOM becomes available, but this time it has a family-friendly twist. It's called the XOOM Family Edition, and it's basically the same Wi-Fi XOOM that has been out for months now, but it's packing around $40 of additional games and other software specifically targeted at kids. Among the bundled software is Zoodles, an app that locks the home button and only grants access to user-defined apps, so you can keep those kiddos away from apps that you deem unfit.
