Last Updated: August 1st, 2011

Update 8/1/11: DesktopSMS is now just DeskSMS.

There are quite a few "remote SMS" apps on the Market, but none quite like ClockworkMod's DesktopSMS. Instead of the usually browser plugin, or dedicated web interface front end, DesktopSMS takes a versatile and familiar approach: Gmail. The app will intercept your incoming SMS messages and forward them to either Gmail, Gtalk, or both, so you can reply from your computer or tablet. Once the sent message hits the receiving end, it looks as if it came directly from your phone, so there's no confusion.

The Appbrain site received a minor updated today that allows it to display the full gamut of app screenshots from the Android Market as opposed to just two. Similarly, they're also working on an update that will make Gingerbread and Honeycomb-specific apps available, as they're noticeably absent at this point.

Remember F-Zero from back in the Super NES days? Or perhaps the more modern WipEout for PS3? Those are both great hovercraft racing games. Do you know what would make them better, though? Guns. And bombs. And all other sorts of artillery that can be used to blow folks up. That's where Protoxide: Death Race comes in, because it has just that. Have a look at the gameplay teaser:

Looks sick, right?

It's a well-known fact that Android enthusiasts love benchmarks. When new devices hit our hands, what is one of the first things we do? Run benchmarks. It's how we compare devices to one another, and what we use to develop the standards on which future devices will be set. At this point, we use a set of benchmarking tools that have become clutch throughout the community: Quadrant, Linpack, SmartBench, etc.

Now, Qualcomm is getting into the benchmarking game with a new web benchmark called Vellamo that aims to judge device performance in areas that really matter: rendering, javascript, networking, and user experience.

ATT_HTC_Inspire_4G_Android_Phone_supports_HSPA-300x280

This is an excellent deal for anyone looking to pick up a new handset without having to sign up for a two-year commitment with a wireless carrier. You can grab a carrier-unlocked HTC Inspire 4G (GSM) for $350 from eBay right now. This may seem a bit steep compared to the relatively low price that you can nab this handset for in-store or for one of the third party manufacturer - until you remove the contract from the equation, that is.
