Ad firm Chitika has run the numbers, and found that the HTC EVO accounts for 1.93% of android handsets, just days after the phone’s release. That may not seem too impressive at first sight, but keep in mind that:
1) The phone sold out nearly everywhere, right away. Personally, I went to 3 stores and called 2 more to try to find one on launch day, without luck. I managed to order one from Sprint, but within 2 days of launch they were reporting being sold out online as well.
Our friends over at Engadget have published a kick ass guide on how to take advantage of Froyo’s cloud to device messenger capability. You may recall the demonstration during the Android keynote at Google I/O, where they pushed directions to their phone from Google Maps with the click of a button. Well, someone hacked together a quick app and accompanying Chrome and Firefox extensions that will allow you to do the same.
Remember this demo I posted from the Google I/O of the amazingly stable flying drone sporting 2 video cameras on-board? The one you can remotely control with your Android phone?
Let me remind you:
As there was no price for this future Christmas gift list topper announced yet besides the "couple hundred dollars" range, all we could do was guess.
However, now we won't have to guess for too long - Parrot, the maker of this drone, has published on their Facebook page that the official release date and price will be announced at the E3 conference in less than 3 weeks - June 15th, 2010:
We’re happy to announce that Parrot AR.DRONE US street price and release date will be revealed at E3, June 15th.
Today we have a new video from Ryan Stewart, an Adobe evangelist, who shows off his Nexus One running a Froyo build (that's Android 2.2 for those who live in a cave) and Flash 10.1.
In the video, Ryan and his shiny dome show off a handful of examples from fully featured Flash applications to video players playing videos, all relatively smoothly and crashing free (it *is* a pre-recorded demo though, I wonder how it performs in real-life conditions).
It seems as though carriers that were lined up for the Nexus One are dropping like flies. First comes the news that Verizon has chosen to go forward with the HTC Incredible as opposed to Google's own branded device, and now Sprint has dropped the Nexus One too.
Michelle Leff Mermelstein, Sprint's Consumer Products spokeswoman, told Gizmodo that the reason behind the decision was the "upcoming availability of the award-winning Evo 4G," as the two devices were not so different (I had to link that!).
