    Xperia X10 Rooted For Real This Time!

    This article mentions rooting and flashing of non-stock ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

    Owners of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 have a pretty good reason to be upset. While recent phones like the myTouch Slide and EVO were rooted within days of their release, the Xperia X10 has been available for months without root, and is stuck on Android 1.6 running a custom skin.

    AT&T and Samsung Announce Captivate, Force Me To Eat My Words
    Last Updated: June 23rd, 2010

    Just in from AT&T and Samsung (days after I say AT&T has no high-end Android phones, no less) – the dead sexy Captivate, described in the press release as part of the Galaxy S class of devices, will be coming to AT&T in the near future.

    We’ve been talking about this phone and its variations for some time now, and all in all we have high hopes for it – and it looks set to deliver.

    Acer-Stream-Android-Specs-and-Video

    While the name leaves a little to be desired, the Acer Stream was recently approved by the FCC and will soon be on its way into the hands of consumers.

    With specs that closely resemble the likes of the Nexus One and the Droid Incredible, the Acer Stream (a.k.a Liquid Stream) boasts some pretty decent hardware and even better, comes with Android 2.1, although hopefully we’ll see Android 2.2 shortly after the release.

    HTC EVO 4G First Impressions And A Mini Hands-On Review
    Last Updated: July 24th, 2011

    After I've finished unboxing the HTC EVO 4G that Google gave out at the Google I/O conference, I started playing with the phone and noting down things that are different from other phones, things that are interesting, and things that bug me.

    Note that this is not meant to be a full review - the bullet points are just my first impressions after 2 hours of use. Think of this post as a mini hands-on review:

    Android Phones From All Over The World Showcased At Google I/O [Google I/O Blitz Coverage, Day 1]

    Due to the amount of information crammed into day 1 of the Google I/O conference, I am blitzing through everything that happened, keeping it short and to the point.

    There was a special case set up at Google I/O today with pretty much every Android phone ever made to date, from all over the world. It was really impressive to realize how many Android phones are out there right now and really put things in perspective, especially if you compare to Apple and its couple of iPhone revisions.

    Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-X10_150

    As the title states, it has just come to light that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will not be getting multitouch as was previously mentioned. In fact at first it was stated it would not be getting multitouch, then it was and now, yet again, it is not and that is the final word on it.

    It seems that some companies are really having trouble relaying information these days.

    Final Word On Multitouch

    Sony Ericsson's Communications Manager Harold de Kort gives the final word about multitouch and the Xperia X10:

    Multi-touch will not be a feature in future updates for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 because the device does not support multi-touch due to her software and hardware configuration.

    Android chart, 100k applications
    Last Updated: March 9th, 2011

    Today I put on my wizard Darth Vader math hat and decided to figure out when the Android market is going to finally reach the 100,000 mark.

    "Why 100,000?" you may ask.

    Apple

    Well, it seemed like a nice round number, and it also happens to be the same number a small company called Apple was obsessing over in November 2009:

    CUPERTINO, California—November 4, 2009—Apple® today announced that developers have created over 100,000 apps for the revolutionary App Store, the largest applications store in the world.

    It's amazing how far mobile CPUs have gone in just 6 months. Here we have a video, courtesy of IntoMobile, of the newly announced HTC EVO 4G, formerly Supersonic, absolutely effortlessly playing a 720P HD video of Prince of Persia: The Sand Of Time.

    HD video is more CPU intensive than plain standard definition, but the 1GHz Snapdragon processor is barely breaking a sweat. For comparison, the HTC Hero with its 528MHz processor can barely play average quality videos, even ones it itself recorded, and stumbles every few seconds.
