Oprah Gets Her Hands On An Extremely Sexy Looking HTC EVO 4G, We Nearly Die Of Envy

Probably the most awaited phone of 2010 - the super sexy HTC EVO 4G (formerly HTC Supersonic) made an appearance today on a none other than an Oprah Winfrey show.

Sprint let her play with the device and we got to catch a quick glimpse of it, thanks to fanboydestroyer from Hawtwired.com (this is the proper credit which was apparently mishandled by some other site owners) who recorded this video from his TV:

The curves, the looks - June can't come fast enough.

Adobe Shows Off A Multi-Touch Tablet Prototype Running Flash And Air "Flawlessly"

The Web 2.0 Expo happening in San Francisco has us quite excited, as Zedomax.com, a blog revolving around technology and gadgets, has found an Android tablet prototype smoothly running Flash and Air.

As you may remember, Adobe had a bit of a falling out with Apple last month, and vowed to instead gun for Android at full speed. With that announcement, we found out that the private Air/Flash beta has been a huge success with developers, with some porting their apps from Flash/Air to Android in a matter of hours.

HTC Droid Incredible VS Motorola Droid In A Video Schmackdown

Wirefly.com loves posting useful phone videos, and the latest one is no exception.

In this video, Wirefly compares the new HTC Droid Incredible (which you can get here for a better price than your Verizon store) to the Motorola Droid in a series they like to call "Schmackdown" (we won't even mention the cheesiness of the name here).

Here are the highlights from the video that I annotated in my favorite bullet point format:

Hardware

  • Comparable size-wise
  • Motorola Droid is thicker and heavier
  • Motorola Droid has a physical keyboard while the Incredible doesn't
  • Both have a virtual keyboard
  • Speech-to-text on both phones
  • Both have a dual LED flash
  • 1GHz and 512MB RAM on the Incredible and 550MHz and 256MB RAM on the Moto Droid
  • The Incredible has an 8MP camera vs Motorola Droid's 5MP
  • No MicroSD preinstalled on the Incredible, though it comes with an 8GB internal storage while the Motorola Droid comes with a 16GB MicroSD card
  • Same buttons on the outside of the phones but the Incredible has a trackpad on the front while the Motorola Droid has it on the inside
  • Both have a 3.7" display but the Incredible has a 480x800 px resolution while the Motorola Droid has 480x854 px
  • Droid Incredible has an AMOLED display
  • Battery life on the Incredible is not as good as the Motorola Droid

Software

  • Both are running Android 2.1
  • Incredible has HTC Sense (with additional apps and widgets) on top of Android while the Motorola Droid has vanilla Android 2.1
  • Incredible has Scenes which are like presets for your home screens while the Moto Droid doesn't have this feature
  • Incredible has some Flash support while the Moto Droid doesn't (though full Flash 10.1 support is going to come with Android 2.2)
  • Incredible seems to have a faster browser, probably due to hardware (both are on Verizon data network)

The video follows:

So, who wins?

iPhone Now Runs Android Too. Wait. WHAT? Is "Flash Coming To iPhone" Going To Be Our Next Headline?

Today has been absolutely nuts - first 3 new Android phones leaked from Dell. Then, another tablet, also from Dell.

And now we have this: a Canadian Linux hacker by the name of Planetbeing posted a 9 minute video of an iPhone 2G running Android. Yes, that is an Android 1.5 or 1.6 dual booted on an iPhone running the iPhone OS.

Planetbeing, being a smart cookie that he is, has ported Linux to run on iPhone hardware over a year ago.

Another day, another delay. Recently, Fox Business News sat down with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen to talk about their new Creative Suite 5 and the controversy regarding Apple excluding Flash from their recent software updates when he let slip that a mobile version of Flash on a variety of platforms, including Android, will be available in the second half of the year.

You can find full video here, but I've excerpted the juicy bits below:

We have a number of excited partners who are working aggressively with us to bring Flash to their devices whether they be smartphones, as well as handsets, and so companies like Google and RIM and Palm are going to be releasing Flash on smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.

Secret Unlock Codes Found For Motorola Droid - Make Your Android Superhuman

Wait, isn't an Android already superhuman or not human at all? Anyway… these videos were posted by a YouTube user DROIDshortcuts, most likely one of Motorola's marketing handles, and then sent over to us by the folks from M80 - a company that works with Motorola on promotions for the Droid.

These videos, shot in an amateur style, are actually quite funny and well made.

Our favorite is the pool one.
