Motorola Photon GHLks

A minor OTA update is currently rolling out to the Motorola Photon 4G that brings a few bug fixes and one notable feature: Google Talk with Video support. Other than that, it's a pretty bland update:

  • Lapdock support
  • Enhancements to image appearance when pictures are taken in panorama mode
  • Forwarded messages are properly identified as being forwarded
  • Improved audio quality with car speakers when connected to a car charger and audio
  • Introduction of international roaming 3G UMTS hotspot functionality for a single Wi-Fi enabled

While this update doesn't bring a whole slew of game-changing features, I'm sure it's still a welcome one for Photon owners.

Online game rental service Gamefly pushed an update to its official app today which brings the same social experience to Android phones and tablets that iOS users have had since April of this year. The service allows you to create a profile and connect with other users for online gameplay (through XBox Live, PSN, or WII), follow other gamers to find out what they're playing, comment on others' posts, share content, and seamlessly integrate with Twitter or Facebook.

I want you to take a mental journey with me. Dig deep into your memory banks -- all the way back to 2001. You there? Great. Think, if you will, about the the state of video games. The Playstation 2 was the hottest console on the market (okay, that's debatable) and Grand Theft Auto III was the game to have. Kids loved it as much as parents, teachers, and other authority figures hated it, due to its (then) graphic nature.

Soon after HP started their TouchPad fire sale, a version of the device running Android 2.2 appeared on eBay and went on to sell for almost $700. Hopes for an Android port were high and the developer community swung into action offering a $2300 bounty for anyone who could load Android on the TouchPad. The CyanogenMod team, Android developers extraordinaire, did not disappoint and soon the news broke that they had managed to successfully get Android running on the TouchPad.

Have you heard of BloomWorlds? Chances are you probably haven't, because even though I've been seeing intermittent updates about it on and off for the past year and a half, they never actually came out with a product, which was supposed to be a family-friendly, curated Android market. As of today, the project is shut down, and the post mortem report filled with reasons for its failure is sitting in our inboxes.

4g-speed1

4G. The acronym is probably the most abused term in tech industry since "HD." And if you spend as much time reading up on mobile phone news as us (we hope you don't, that's what we're for!), you probably have come to the same conclusion: it's almost without meaning, constantly misrepresented, and defined on a completely subjective basis. We don't like any of this.

Neither do some of the members of congress, apparently.

Gameloft just pushed the third iteration of its Let's Golf HD series to the Android Market for the low price of free. For those uninitiated with Let's Golf, here's the nuts-and-bolts: you get to play golf in some outrageous places, like outer space or the Great Wall of China. Despite its cartoonish nature, it's quite graphically detailed -- everything from the green to the surrounding details is bright, vivid, and detailed.

LG-Doubleplay

Who's in the market for a whack looking phone with some sort of flip-out hybrid keyboard-screen? You are? Then the LG Doubleplay is singing your song. Check this... thing... out:

LG-Doubleplay

Don't worry. I gagged, too.

The Doubleplay will most likely be a low-end phone, judging by the reported 320x480 display and weak 5MP camera. That doesn't keep it from being unique though, with a secondary LCD that will probably serve very little practical purpose embedded right in the middle of the keyboard.
