Adobe Photoshop Touch

Next in our series of reviews centered around Adobe's Touch Apps is Photoshop Touch, a nearly perfect paring-down of its desktop counterpart. While Photoshop Touch may be a little simplified, it still has a ton of features, and packs in almost all of the things I need for on-the-go photo editing.

At A Glance

Essentially, Photoshop Touch is a more basic version of the desktop software, with Creative Cloud connectivity and Android 3.1+ compatibility thrown in.

Since we first saw the Droid 4 last month, we've been waiting for more info on the phone that seems to perfect the ideas behind the Droid 3. Just yesterday, we saw official specs and a few scanned photos from a leaked Verizon document. Today, Droid Life unearthed some official press shots, showing off the Droid 4's 4" qHD display and 5-row keyboard.

In case you need a refresher, here are the Droid 4's specs:

  • 4-inch qHD display
  • 1.2Ghz dual-core processor (most likely the same one that's in the Droid RAZR)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • 5 row slide-out QWERTY
  • Android 2.3.x (will most likely be upgraded to ICS)
  • 1785mAh battery
  • 4G LTE

There's no official word yet on the D4's exact release date, but it looks like there's a good chance we'll see it on December 8th.

For those who spend a lot of time looking at a computer, and can't be bothered to look at their phone very often, Sand Studio has introduced AirDroid, an app that allows users to control their Android Phone from a computer via WiFi.

The great thing about AirDroid is that it works - it's easy to start up, and functions flawlessly (in my experience). The interface is also very polished - mimicking a desktop launcher complete with moveable icons, a task bar, and controls that allow you to do just about anything.

In a recent "Competitive Comparison" graphic, Verizon has labeled Samsung's Galaxy Nexus as having "No OEM Customization," ostensibly as a selling point against the competition.

It's interesting that Verizon would go so far in labeling the Nexus' UI as such, but it may hint that VZW is at least vaguely aware that some consumers prefer a stock experience, and consider it a strong enough selling point that it should be included in a comparison chart.

The official Race Of Champions game of unbelievable quality that Invictus has been teasing us with since October was just released in the Android Market. First organized in 1988, RoC is a real annual motorsport event "where stars from Formula One, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, sportscars and touring cars compete against each other, going head-to-head in identical cars" (per Wikipedia).

The Android version has stunning graphics and the level of detail you would regularly expect from a console game.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Google Music Is Here, But Will You Use It?

Inspired by both the poll on ideal phone screen size and last week's poll on which orientation you use your tablet, I'm curious to see what your ideal tablet screen size is.  So far, it seems 10" is the standard for full-fledged tablets, 7" for e-readers and "tablet-lite" devices, and there's a gamut of sizes in between (and below) for all different purposes - but which is right for you?

HTC-Ville-2

Remember the upcoming HTC Ville that we heard about earlier this month? Pocketnow has snagged what seems to be an official render, and the image reveals a device swathed in brushed aluminum - not to mention, as rumored, the Ville does look like it will check in at under 8mm thick.

Other details remain the same as what we've heard before:

  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 8MP rear shooter (the same one that's reportedly in the Edge) with 1080p video
  • Metal construction
  • Less than 8mm thick
  • HSPA+
  • 1650mAh battery
  • Sense 4.0
  • Beats Audio

HTC is expected to reveal the Ville at MWC in February, to be released in April.

On what could possibly qualify as the most boring day of the year as far as Android news is concerned, a gem has finally surfaced: the seemingly official specs of the illusive Droid 4. We first caught a glimpse of the D4 last month, along with some suggested specs. If this leaked internal Verizon document obtained by Droid Life is to be believed, then most of the specs have now been realized.
