Love to shop? Love to shop on the go? Love to shop while shopping? If you answered yes to any of those questions (especially the last one) then you need to grab the new app from online retailer Zappos. It offers all of the Zappos deals that you've grown to love, but it also has the features that you would expect from a good shopping app. Of course you can search and buy, but it also has product reviews, a sharing feature that works over bluetooth, and a wishlist style feature.
Well, that was fast. It hasn't been very long since the vold exploit was found that allowed root access to Gingerbread and Honeycomb systems, but Google has already patched it and moved the fix into the AOSP code (see these commits: , , , ). This means that once this update is pushed, we will need to find another route to achieve root access on devices running Gingerbread and Honeycomb.
This morning we told you about RIM's plan to bring Blackberry Enterprise Solution to Android and iOS, with a brief mention of Android apps running on the Playbook. No sooner than we posted the aforementioned article did we find out that RIM had demonstrated just that at Blackberry World Conference. Take a look at the video:
Each Android app will run in its own virtual machine, but will seamlessly integrate into the Blackberry ecosystem.
Ok, so we have some good news and some not-as-good-as-you-would-like-it-to-be news for Notion Ink Adam owners. Let's start with the good: according to the official Notion Ink blog, the kernel source code for the Adam has been released. Great, right? Now all of the custom fun that you've been waiting for is just around the corner, you just have to wait on developers to download the code and get to work.
When I think of Sprint, the first thought that comes to mind is CEO Dan Hesse standing on a pier talking about being truly unlimited. I'm sure that he really does like the idea of being truly unlimited... but only when phones are concerned. You see, Sprint is reportedly going to take a different stance when it comes to data connection cards and embedded devices, such as tablets and netbooks.
It's no secret that RIM (Research In Motion) has been dipping their figurative toes in the Android water lately, and it looks like running Android apps on the Blackberry Playbook was just the beginning. RIM plans to bring Blackberry Enterprise Solution to both Android and iOS, further helping businesses manage their wireless infrastructure and security.
Once it's released, network administrators will be able to handle a lot of the mobile grind remotely - everything from activation and software updates, to resetting passwords and wiping devices - all over the air.
Since the day it was released, the DROID Incredible 2 has been hard to get ahold of, especially if you prefer to do all of your business with Amazon Wireless. Well, I'm happy to tell you that it has dropped its "backordered" status, is in stock, and available at a pretty incredible price (no pun intended). You can grab this second-gen monster for the low price of $100 with a new two-year agreement, which is 50% off the price that you will pay at Verizon.
I really, really love apps that let me remote access my phone. In the past, I've used apps that let me take screenshots remotely, access my SMS remotely, and do a few other simple tasks without ever having to touch my phone.
Today, though, I've come across the mother of all remote control apps, and it's appropriately named LazyDroid Web Desktop. This thing is super cool - it lets you access your phone over Wi-Fi or USB through a desktop-esque application inside of your browser.
The LG G2x is showing up all over the place today, isn't it? This time it's joined by its cousin, the Optimus 2X, as they are both graced with the custom ROM goodness of CyanogenMod. Be warned, though - these are only nightly builds so they are not yet polished, final versions of CM7. They are however, official CyanogenMod builds from TeamDouche, not ported versions from other developers.
Now that you know what's up, you can grab the downloads from their respective threads over at XDA.
A couple of weeks ago we told you how to get the G2x for $50 from CellHub (it jumped up to $100 shortly after we posted the article). If you still want to score a G2x for less than $100, but don't want to order from a vendor that you've never heard of, then you're in luck. Today only, RadioShack.com is offering the G2x for $99 with any qualifying contract.
