Google: Android SMS Bug Is Real, Will Be Fixed Shortly

About a week ago, Engadget ran an article covering two bugs in Android's Messaging app:

  • The first involves an issue where users are directed to a different thread than the one they selected from the notifications bar or the main screen of the SMS app
  • The second occurs when users are directed to the right thread but end up having their messages sent to a different person than the one involved in the thread

Shortly after, Google changed the bug's priority from "medium" to "critical" on the bugs Google Code page to show that the company cares.

Motorola Announces The Xoom Honeycomb Tablet

After a surprise from Andy Rubin at D:Dive Into Mobile, a tease from Motorola themselves, and many rumors surrounding it, the Honeycomb powered Motorola Xoom is finally official. Announced today at CES, the Xoom will pack a dual-core 1GHz Tegra II processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, and vanilla Android 3.0. The Xoom eschews the recent trend of 7-inch displays on tablets, and instead opts for a 10.1-inch 1280x800 (16:10) (gorilla glass) display, which should complement the 720P video playback capabilities nicely.

CES 2011: Parrot Introduces An Android-Powered Asteroid Car Stereo [Video]

Last night at the CES Unveiled preview event, I got a chance to see a new product made by Parrot, called Asteroid.

Asteroid is a voice-activated, Android-powered car deck that replaces your existing single DIN car stereo. It has a small non-touch 3.2" color screen, runs on a specialized version of Android (the presenter didn't seem to know which Android version it was based on exactly), is capable of running custom Android apps (SDK for which is coming out later), and can accept a variety of inputs, such as your iPhone, iPod, USB storage, SD card (the left half detaches to reveal the SD slot), Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, 3G and GPS dongles, and AM/FM/RDS.

Photos And Videos Of Rumored LG Optimus Pad Hit Engadget

Well, well, well, what do we have here? The device Engadget found in LG's CES booth (see the thumbnail above and the video at the source link) could very well be the long-rumored Optimus Pad. The 8.9-inch device, which is said to be powered by a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, is something I have been lusting after for a while now.

While we can't be sure that the device in the thumbnail is the Optimus Pad, it sure looks a lot like the render below.

ASUS Announces Eee Pad Slider And Eee Pad Transformer, Mixes Honeycomb Tablets And Physical Keyboards Into One Delicious Mix

If you love the idea behind ASUS' recently announced MeMO tablet but want a physical keyboard, you'll be delighted to know that the company has just announced two more Android tablets in the Eee Pad line - namely, the Slider and the Transformer.

For the most part, the two share the same specs:

  • Honeycomb
  • Tegra 2 processor
  • 512MB RAM, 1GB ROM
  • 10.1" 1280x800 capacitive IPS display
  • 1.2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear
  • Mini HDMI port
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n

However, there are also some key differentiators between the Slider and the Transformer - for example, the former includes a USB 2.0 port, while the latter comes with 16, 32, or 64 GB of eMMC storage (as opposed to the Slider's 16 or 32 GB of flash).

Nielsen Releases Smartphone Market Share Figures, Android Domination Imminent?

smartphone-os-nov2010America's most trusted name in bar graphs, Nielsen, released an updated look at smartphone market share distribution today. The results aren't terribly surprising: Android is growing, and quickly at that. Blackberry's free-fall into the abyss has slowed to a steady death march. But what about Apple's fare?

Since the release of the iPhone 4 in June, Apple's total share of the smartphone market has increased by a paltry 0.7%, while Android has gained 10.8% more of the smartphone pie to reach 25.8% of the total - a mere 2.8% behind Apple, as you can see below.

Android + PacMan + Google Maps = PacMap

Yesterday, we received an email tip about a new app called PacMap, which blends virtual/augmented reality, Google Maps, and... PacMan. Unsure of what to make or think of this potentially dangerous, but extremely original and interesting concept, I decided to test the waters last night by submitting the app to reddit. This morning, it was #1 in /r/android, which shows that thinking outside the box is always welcomed. Oh, and did I mention that PacMap is open source?

MIUI Digital Clock Widget Hits Android Market - Give Your Handset The MIUI Feel Tonight

The MIUI ROM is definitely one of the most magical things on Android today. A mix between iOS and Android, the ROM is beautiful, fast, and allows for user-created themes.  At times, it doesn't even look like Android. It is a real change; different, but great. In my humble opinion, two of the best parts of the ROM are the beautiful weather widget and digital clock widget. For some time now I have wanted both the digital clock widget and weather widget on my 2.2.1 Nexus One, and now thanks to the development team Factory Widgets, I am now able to use the MIUI digital clock widget outside of the MIUI ROM, and so can you!
