Cage Fight, Part 1: Why Android Will Win The Smartphone War

Pundits have been saying for some time now there’s no sense in trying to predict a winner of the smartphone war. Some say that the marketplace is large enough to accommodate everyone and that cage fights make no sense because the iPhone and Android phones cater to different audiences. Really?

While some may not like labeling winners and losers, there are winners and losers in business every day.

Cage Fight, Part 2: Why Apple Will Win The Smartphone War

I have to say, I disagree with Kenny’s view that Apple is losing to Android. In fact, when Artem asked me what I thought of his article a few weeks ago, I went off for about 15 minutes listing reasons it was just plain wrong (at which point, I then debated back and forth with him for another 20 minutes).

SimpleRoot OTA 1.47.651.1 Edition Now Unlocking Root And NAND On Post-OTA EVO 4G Phones

This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

Remember the 3-click SimpleRoot app that brought full root, including permanently unlocking NAND (that's something unrevoked doesn't do), to your EVO 4G? I sure do, as that's exactly how I rooted my EVO. However, If you applied the latest god forsaken EVO OTA, you may have found that that version of SimpleRoot no longer worked.

Swiftkey Keyboard For Android Now Available In The Market As A Public Beta. Swype Begone - It's That Good!

Swiftkey For those of you who don’t like your stock or alternative add-on keyboards on your Android device, have I got good news for you: the Swiftkey beta is now available in the Android market.

I’ve been using Swiftkey through a private beta for the past few weeks and there’s one word I have to describe it: fantastic. I replaced my Swype keyboard with Swiftkey and haven’t looked back since.

One of the best features of this keyboard is the predictive text.

I Am Iron Meh: LG Ally Review

If you’re a fan of a physical QWERTY keyboard, your Android options tend to be fairly limited. Your best bet would be to pick up the Motorola Droid, but if, for some reason, that phone doesn’t do it for you, you’re limited to either the Cliq or the Backflip – both developed by Motorola, and both gimmicky and under-powered. For some reason manufacturers seem to be avoiding high-powered QWERTY handsets like the plague, instead opting for touchscreen ‘superphones’, such as the EVO 4G, or the Nexus One.

Shazam For Android Goes Premium - This Is How A Paid Version Launch Should Be Done

Have you ever been out in public, heard a song, liked it, and wanted to know the name of it? Well, there’s a very cool app that’s been around for a while called Shazam. You simply fire up the app when you hear the song, press TAG, and voila! The app identifies (or tags) the song title and artist for you and provides ways to purchase the track via an online store or find it on YouTube.

    Samsung Intercept Unboxing, Hands-On, And Initial Impressions

    Samsung has been very good to us lately – yesterday, I came home to find the (pink) Intercept on my doorstep, and today they delivered a Captivate to Chris (yea, I got the short end of that stick.) This may not be the crown jewel in Samsung’s collection, but it serves as a phone for the masses.

    It’s funny (but not surprising) to see Android moving down the phone spectrum – or rather, maybe Android is just keeping its spot and the hardware has caught up to it.

    AT&T’s Samsung Captivate Unboxing And Initial Hands-On!

    Our friendly neighborhood FedEx employee stopped by this morning with our Samsung Captivate, so I figured I’d do a quick unboxing video, snap some pictures, and give you guys our initial thoughts before our review in a couple days.

    The box itself is fairly boring, sticking with a generic “You bought a cell phone on AT&T!” design rather than trying to shake things up a la the EVO 4G’s eco-friendly box design, or Apple’s sleek iPhone packaging.
