Boost Mobile Announces Samsung Galaxy Prevail - Launching "Late April" For $179.99 Off-Contract

No one ever accused Boost Mobile of overachieving on the Android phone front, and the carrier's latest announcement doesn't really do much to change that. Indeed, just as expected, Sprint's little tagalong used its recent press conference to unveil its first CDMA Android handset: the Samsung Galaxy Prevail.

With an itsy-bitsy 3.2-inch display, a measly 2MP camera, and a tiny 2GB microSD card out of the box, the Prevail isn't about to blow anyone away - but then again, we geeks probably aren't Boost Mobile's target demographic here.

Unhappy Developers: 86% Say Android Fragmentation Is A Problem

A recent study by William Powers of Baird Research has revealed that a whopping 86% of developers think that Android fragmentation is a problem. While only 24% of devs described it as a "huge problem," it doesn't discredit the fact that the overall percentage was so outrageous.

AppBrain Helps Users Find Apps That Utilize In-App Billing, Bests The Android Market Once Again

It's no secret that the Android Market isn't exactly the easiest place to find what you want. Unless an app is super popular, brand new, or you know its exact name, you could end up wandering in that virtual mall like a small child whose mother forgot to tell them she was heading to the next shop.

AppBrain has been a popular way to deal with the poor organization of the Market, allowing users to search for apps in a variety of categories and giving suggestions for programs based on what is currently installed on users' handsets.

Amazon Launches Cloud Player Music Streaming Service For Android

While some companies are content to just talk, talk, talk about what they are doing, Amazon seems to be quietly hard at work. Last week they gave us the Amazon Appstore for Android and last night they dropped another bomb – the Amazon Cloud Player.

WebCloudPlayer

If Grooveshark and Dropbox had a baby, it would be Amazon Cloud Player. It consists of Cloud Drive - 5GB of free cloud storage on Amazon’s servers (upgradable to 20GB with the purchase of one album or for $20/year; $1 per gigabyte after that) - and the Cloud Player, which can be accessed from the web or from an Android device.

It's Official: RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Will (Sort Of) Support Android Apps

Some combinations are as natural as peanut butter and jelly - Avatar & 3D, Apple & dictatorship, and Conan O'Brien & late-night comedy, to name a few. But are Android apps and the BlackBerry PlayBook also such a sweet match? If you ask RIM, the answer is a firm, definitive "yes."

The BlackBerry maker just confirmed the age-old rumors - it's announced that the upcoming QNX-based PlayBook tablet will support Android apps.

HTC ThunderBolt Review: When 'Tried And True' Meets 'New And Blazing Fast'

Well, it's finally here - after almost as many rumored (and subsequently unmet) release dates as the Notion Ink Adam, the HTC ThunderBolt has finally gone on sale. But with a sky-high $250 price tag and essentially the same hardware as the rapidly aging Desire HD, can it still impress?

That's not an easy question to answer - while the ThunderBolt is a great all-around device on an incredibly zippy network, it doesn't exactly have the most future-proof hardware in the business, and it comes armed to the teeth with bloatware.
