Update: This breaks root! If you're already rooted, download and flash the rooted version of the update. Thanks Steven.

If you had Swype beforehand and you install the update, you may have issues with it. If you do:

... go into the installed applications settings (not the swype settings). First you must clear the application data, then uninstall the application. Then you must shutdown the phone. Then, of course, you must turn it on again.

Our pal Dan Ruby over at Chitika just shot us a note to let us know that he's run the numbers and come up with a prediction for when Android will take over the #1 position in market share in the US, based on ad impressions on Chitika's network. The result: February 16, 2012... at 12:23 PM EST.

He's put a fair amount of time into crunching these numbers - last we'd talked to him (two weeks ago), he was already working on it.

Do you feel the need for speed? Apparently you aren't alone, as Dolphin Browser Mini has just gone into public beta on the Market. The app offers numerous improvements over the regular version of Dolphin Browser as well as the HD version, including:

  • High speed responsibility [sic]
  • Speed Dial Homepage
  • Innovative Menu design
  • Infinite tabs browsing
  • Intelligent back & forward button

Like its ancestors, it also features a variety of innovative gestures, bookmark syncing, private browsing, and a host of other features not found in the stock Android browser.

Another month, another report from advertiser Millennial Media. As usual, it's best to start this off by pointing out that these results are based on ad impressions across Millennial's network, and thus should be considered a sample. With that out of the way, let's take a peek.

The two most significant things that stand out to me are that Android is now tied with iOS for the largest smartphone OS, and Android accounts for a whopping 54% of ad revenue on the network, versus 39% for iOS.

A new update to Facebook for Android just landed on the Market, and it brings a duo of long-awaited features: push notifications and Chat. Naturally, it also packs some bug fixes for good measure.

Personally, I find the new Chat feature to be perfectly adequate, but David is thoroughly unimpressed. His complaints are that it has a boring interface, it's slow, and it just feels tacked on. I don't exactly disagree with any of those points, I just don't think they're major issues.

Evernote, everybody's favorite note-taking app platform that allows you to record data using a variety of mediums, including notes, snapshots and recordings, released an update to the Android version of its app yesterday, with a number of advanced features many users have been clamouring for.

Firstly, Evernote stores a wide variety of different types of notes and information, so it can often become difficult to locate the specific note in question.

It almost seems like more worthwhile news comes from XDA-Developers forum members than from carriers and manufacturers, doesn't it? This time around, it's user sino8r with a handy guide on how to modify the ROM on your rooted phone so that your carrier doesn't throttle your data. In other words, this one isn't for the inexperienced or faint of heart.

What exactly do we mean when we say this isn't for the rookies?
