Qualcomm Snapdragon

Last week, Qualcomm showed off Quick Charge 1.0, a technology that makes your phone charge more quickly, and that you may already have. Today, they've announced Quick Charge 2.0, and surprise of surprises, it charges your phone faster than Quick Charge 1.0!

Quick Charge 2.0 will allow your phone to juice up at rates up to 75% faster than a phone or tablet without the technology. The catch with the new version is that you'll need to have a device with a Snapdragon 800 processor...

If you're a game developer coming from a Windows or console background (often meaning Visual Studio), Android can be a bit of a culture shock. New tools, new setup, different workflows - it's a lot to take in. And really, a lot of developers that use Visual Studio are less than keen to step away from one of the most powerful IDE's on the market.

Well, now NVIDIA has a potential solution: Nsight Tegra, a brand-new plugin for Visual Studio that gives you a native Android development environment.

According to ReadWrite and The Verge, HP is working on some new tablets. Tablets that run Android. Which is... well, surprising isn't really the world. Interesting? Sort of? Maybe?

After the failure of the Touchpad, HP basically had three options if it wanted to get back in the consumer tablet game: Windows RT, Android, or another stab at WebOS. HP allegedly threw out plans for Windows RT hardware in June of last year, and WebOS is an open source husk of itself that hasn't been acknowledged by the company in months.

If you're currently dissatisfied with the selection of lockscreen widgets for Android 4.2 devices, a fantastic new entry from Android Engineer Roman Nurik just hit the Play Store. It's called DashClock Widget, and it's one of the cleanest, best-integrated widgets we've ever seen.

DashClock Widget combines many of the most common widgets – Gmail unread count, weather, calendar, missed calls, text messages, and alarms – into one clean, sophisticated, customizable widget.

Google Voice is a great service burdened by a lack of support, integration, and easy way to sign up (unless you're on Sprint, of course). Those who do decide to jump the hurdles and either get a brand new number—or port their existing one to Google—will find themselves in an uncomfortable paradise. On the one hand, you can text from your desktop, tablet, or phone completely for free which is awesome.

One of these days, we're finally going to figure this whole buttons problem for Android devices. While touchscreens are great, the tactile feeling of physical controls will always have its appeal. Some solutions are better than others, but maybe the Wikipad can find the sweet spot. The tablet comes with an attached set of game controls that can be removed, leaving the player with a regular 7" Tegra 3 tablet.

Dropbox integration is something I've come to rely on in Android - I honestly don't know if I could do without it. Whether through the native share interface, or via direct integration with a particular app, Dropbox is my go-to for cloud storage, and has been for a while. Mobile developers wanting deep Dropbox sync integration in their apps, though, have generally been left to their own devices, necessitating the creation of custom-made solutions for those wanting to go beyond simple upload and download.

Back in early-to-mid December, Fuhu announced a pair of new tablets: the nabi Jr. for small children, and the nabi XD for tweens. While release details were scant for the nabi Jr., the XD was penciled in for a mid-January release date. That time frame has come and gone, but it looks like both device are now available through BestBuy.com, though it's possibly the company pulled the trigger a little bit early since there's been nary a word from Fuhu since the initial announcement.
