T-Mobile Goes After The iPhone And AT&T In A New 4G Campaign [Video]

T-Mobile Goes After The iPhone And AT&T In A New 4G Campaign [Video]

Yesterday, T-Mobile officially rebranded its new HSPA+ network as "4G" in an effort to gain that extra G that consumers are so obsessed with (relevant: [1] [2]). In order to promote this newly proclaimed largest 4G network in the country along with the myTouch 4G that was released today, the company launched a video campaign that will air on major TV networks and websites.

The first campaign video features a fresher, younger, and even more vibrant replacement for Catherine Zeta-Jones (who has been T-Mobile's regular face in the last few years) in a familiar and kind of overplayed "Hi, I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" style.

Hands-On: 8pen Alternative Input Method Released To Market, Promises To Bemuse, Frustrate And ... Reward? [Video]

Hands-On: 8pen Alternative Input Method Released To Market, Promises To Bemuse, Frustrate And ... Reward? [Video]

A couple of days ago, French company 3qubits unveiled their unique take on what they imagined touchscreen keyboards of the future would look like. Starting with the notion that a full QWERTY layout could never fit properly on a handheld touchscreen device, they set about  creating something entirely different. What they came up with is 8pen, which was released to the Android Market moments ago.

It's pretty crazy. Not quite as crazy as Dasher (free on Android), but indisputably one of the more radical input methods we've seen on Android so far.

ZTE Blade / Orange San Francisco Review: Two-Thirds Of A Nexus One For One-Third The Price

ZTE Blade / Orange San Francisco Review: Two-Thirds Of A Nexus One For One-Third The Price

Introduction

Since the advent of Android in 2009, the family of devices running Google's mobile OS has grown from one handset to now hundreds and possibly thousands of unique models. In recent months, Android has seen an explosion of devices coming from lesser-known Asian manufacturers, with one of the main selling points being price. The manufacturers realized that with Android they had a readily and freely accessible operating system, a large market of potential customers, and all they had to do was put together a cheap device to capitalize on Android's continued growth.

Slick UI Wants To Be The Next Game Changer In Android UIs, Looks Plenty Original

Slick UI Wants To Be The Next Game Changer In Android UIs, Looks Plenty Original

One of the reasons I love Android is because you can customize the heck out of your experience. Replacing the stock launcher with Launcher Pro is pretty much the first thing I do now when I get a new phone because of the innovations a hard-working, smart, and dedicated engineer (Fede) can bring to the table.

However, Launcher Pro is not too much different from the stock UI, outside of tweaks and other little but important things - same goes for ADW and other home replacements.

Giant Gingerbread Statue Arrives At Googleplex

Giant Gingerbread Statue Arrives At Googleplex

What do we have here? Why, it's a giant Gingerbread statue getting installed over at Googleplex, right next to Froyo and the rest of the gang. It's not exactly what we'd been expecting and hoping to see today, but it's a start. Last time the Froyo statue was installed, we got the SDK a week later. Bring it on, Google!

REVIEW: Reckless Racing Brings Yeehaw Dorifto To Android

REVIEW: Reckless Racing Brings Yeehaw Dorifto To Android

Note: Testing for this review was done on a Nexus One

I love drifting. As I tuck myself into bed, I can be heard to whisper "Good night, Dorikin". So when I read that Reckless Racing, so long anticipated on the Droid Forums gaming section, had finally been released, I immediately bought it from the market.

My first impressions weren't particularly positive. The country hick theme (RR was formerly known as Deliverace) did not appeal to me, and the single-thumb control scheme was terrible.

Yahoo Messenger With Video Calling Ripped Out Of The Leaked MyTouch ROM, Works Great Over WiFi And 3G - Download It Now

A few days ago, Yahoo rolled out a version of the Yahoo Messenger for iOS that supported video chat and promised the same on Android shortly. Of course, we can't wait for "shortly" - that's entirely too long. Remember the Glacier/MyTouch ROM leak from yesterday? Turns out, it contains a full version of the Yahoo Messenger app, including video calling. Ripped out by the brave xda member matthewjulian, the app is available for download immediately (see below).

Did The Japanese Just Produce The First Andronator?

Was John Connor right? Are robots going to be our downfall? Terminators? Androids? Andronators?

At Google's Developer Show in Tokyo, something that might just be one of the coolest Android creations ever was demonstrated - a real, moving Google Android logo. Built and developed by the Japanese company, RT the Android was shown to be able to walk, open its mouth, and wave its arms. Best of all, the Android is controlled entirely from an Android OS handset.
