Netflix this evening appears to have quietly unleashed the Android app on 16 more previously unsupported devices, all without updating the application at all.

The whole situation threw us off quite a bit, as the Netflix app description now lists both the new devices and a reference to a new version 1.3, while the app itself is still stuck at 1.2.2.

Nevertheless, after trying to find it in the Market using devices that were previously unsupported (HTC EVO 3D and Thunderbolt), to our pleasant surprise, we succeeded.

If you're a myTouch 4G user, we have some great news to bring to you today! A post has been written on the T-Mobile support forums announcing that the Gingerbread rollout will begin with a limited pilot starting from today, and it will reach all myTouch 4G users by the end of this year.

According to the post, "a broader rollout to myTouch 4G customers will begin in the  coming weeks" so if you aren't rocking Gingerbread this week, be patient!

In a recent patent suit between HTC and Apple, the US International Trade Commission found the Taiwanese manufacturer liable on two counts of patent infringement in its Android-based devices (see our earlier post for a detailed analysis of the case and its effects).

Although this suit only involves Apple and HTC, its legal ramifications could affect Android as a whole - since the alleged infringements are core parts of the Android OS developed by Google.

Autodesk is one of the many devs out there that consistently impress me with its high-quality, well-made apps - especially when it comes to Honeycomb. The newest app out of Autodesk's camp, SketchBook Pro, meets - and perhaps surpasses - all of the standards that have been set in my mind for quality development.

SketchBook Pro is a drawing app designed with the professional in mind - and it appears to be quite full-featured.

Android's latest indirect legal tussle to come to a head, a patent suit between HTC and Apple, was ruled on last week by the US ITC (Court of International Trade) - finding the Taiwanese manufacture liable for two counts of patent infringement. This news has spread like wildfire through every corner of the tech blog world. But is there really anything that's changed right now (or even in the near future) because of the outcome of this suit?

Owners of Samsung's Android devices are being treated to Cyanogen left, right and center lately. Just a few days ago, the Fascinate joined the ranks of Samsung CM7 devices alongside the Captivate, Nexus S 4G, Vibrant, and the Galaxy S, and now you can add the Galaxy S II to that list.

Atin M, a developer of Cyanogen, posted the news on Google+ earlier, saying:

Ok, Samsung Galaxy S2 should be getting CyanogenMod7 nightlies soon (as soon as builtbot is ready to do builds, they're all broken at the moment).

After much debate, several upset comments, and a number of good points made - I've decided to rewrite the review of the Toshiba Thrive. Admittedly, the first review lacked the kind of thorough objectivity we usually try to achieve when we look at new hardware, and it's not fair to readers to make a jump to the conclusion without a complete analysis first. I apologize.

The Toshiba Thrive has been a darling of the Android community since it was unveiled way back in January at CES in Las Vegas, when it was still just the young, nameless "Toshiba Tablet." Fast-forward 7 months, it's July, and the Thrive is finally here - but has it matured well?

android 3.2 sdk manager

Following the Android 3.2 update that began rolling out to Wi-Fi Xoom models a few days ago, Google has now released the Android 3.2 SDK into the wild, adding a number of new features whilst bumping the API level from 12 to 13 following the introduction of some API changes.

The most noticeable changes to Honeycomb in this update include:

  • Optimizations for a wider range of tablets
  • Compatibility zoom for fixed size apps, which provides a pixel-scaled alternative to the standard UI stretching for apps that are not designed to run on larger screen sizes
  • Media sync from SD cards, allowing users to load media directly from an SD card to applications which use them

The new platform can be downloading using the Android SDK Manager, so if you're a developer then get going!

Have you been tempted by the recent onslaught of Honeycomb tablets entering the market, but forced yourself to hold back due to the lack of virtualization options available on the platform? No, neither have I (held back, that is), but these 'pro' applications always help when using a tablet, right?

VMWare users will be no doubt be delighted to hear about the arrival of VMWare View on the Android Market, which has been designed and developed from the ground up to give Honeycomb users the best possible experience when accessing their virtual Windows desktops on the go.
