Motorola Photon GHLks

Motorola and Sprint teamed up for a press conference in NYC today, where they announced Sprint's newest beast of a phone: the Photon 4G. Check it out:

Motorola Photon GVS PHOTON_4G_Dyn_R_vert_Home_Sprint_small

 

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • 4.3 inch qHD display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB onboard storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, VGA front facing camera
  • Kickstand
  • Global-ready
  • WiMax
  • Mobile hotspot
  • Advanced, enterprise level IT security
  • Gingerbread
  • Webtop capable

This phone was previously rumored to be "the Atrix for Sprint," but while the general look of the device is quite similar, the Photon seems to be more of an evolution and less a rebranding.

A couple of weeks ago the BBC released its first app designed specifically for Android phones, but there was one problem - it was for residents of the UK only. Fortunately, though, an app was released this morning that caters to the rest of the world.

ss-0-1-a8182788261642c09a246ded3296e2ebb41dccda ss-1-1-ba0836cbef151e00d0eec8613648330f87b0ed77 ss-2-0-cae7aebdd6a136808ffaade1324a76296da113e6

It looks and functions just like its UK counterpart, offering a nice, clean UI. You can easily share stories through various social mediums, email, and SMS, listen to BBC World Service radio live, watch videos, and personalize your home screen so you get only the news that your interested in as soon as you launch the app.

Who doesn't love Jenga? I can't think of a single person that doesn't like to drive themselves totally insane with anticipation playing this awesome leaning-tower-of-blocks game. As of... well, now, you can get that same intense feeling on your Android device, as NaturalMotionGames has brought this family-friendly game to Android.

Probably among the most important features of the game is the realistic physics. If you're going to play, you want it to be physically correct, right?

One of the more interesting features of the HTC Flyer is its use of a digital pen, but up until now there has been little talk of its availability. The Digital Pen allows you to write on basically anything you see on the Flyer, including web pages or input boxes, using HTC Scribe technology. I think that there was speculation that the Flyer would come with the digital pen, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

I remember when I first saw Plants vs. Zombies. I believe it was before I had an Android phone (*gasp*) and, even though it originated on the desktop, a friend of mine showed it to me on his iPhone. Once I got my OG Droid, it was one of the first games that I searched for in the Market, but of course it was irritatingly absent. So I waited... and waited...

If you're an HBO subscriber and just can't get enough TV, then I've got good news for you! HBO has just released its official watch-it-on-the-go Android App, HBO GO. Of course, you have to be an HBO customer in order to use this app, but that's the only prerequisite as far as I can tell.

ss-0-320-480-160-0-6a13a793f60f6c7baa0d47c50a9571598274aa47 ss-1-320-480-160-0-be5d1f3f72411a0beec59ff4a2a5f7dbb7d6c261 ss-2-320-480-160-0-c6cea9ea866ad780f1f62ee1ff2b1a2e170e0ccc

The app allows you to watch all of your favorite HBO content directly on your mobile device, including movies and HBO original content.

April 28th is going to be a big day at Verizon for Android lovers, as three new phones are scheduled to hit the sales floor, adding even more choices to the already vast lineup of VZW Android powered goodness.

Samsung DROID Charge

First on the list is the Samsung DROID Charge. I realize that we've known the release date for several days, but it's definitely worth mentioning again since it's the first 4G phone to carry the DROID tag and will most likely take its place as the new flagship phone for VZW.

It's not very often that I get the honor of telling people about a game as awesome as Death Worm. Ah, that sparked your attention, yes? Read on to find out more. But first, some obligatory screenshots:

AT&T has kind of introduced two new LG Android powered smartphones into its lineup, set to appear on April 17th - the LG Thrive and LG Phoenix. I say "kind of" because, well, they're the same phone. The Thrive is a prepaid variant, while the Phoenix is a contract-only device.

Left: Thrive; Right: Phoenix

They're not really anything to brag about, but here are the specs:

  • 600MHz processor
  • 3.2 Inch screen
  • 160MB of user memory, 2GB SD card
  • 3.2MP Camera
  • Android 2.2

I guess it's not too bad when you consider the off contract price of $180 for the Thrive (okay, yes it is.

If you're a designer, architect, or construction contractor (or know someone who is) then there's a good chance that you've heard of AutoCAD. For those that haven't - AutoCAD is software made for 2D/3D design and drafting - and now it's coming to Android. There has been a version available for iOS under the name AutoCAD WS for some time now, and with the increasing number of requests for an Android version, AutoDesk decided that it was time to oblige.
