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.

Behold PowerAMP - The Most Gorgeous Player On The Android Platform, With Preamp And Equalizer Support

There is no shortage of media applications for Android - in fact, Winamp that came out last week was the most serious and robust media offering I've seen so far. However, when it comes to strictly the media player functionality, even Winamp can't touch what I'm about to show you - a new beta app called PowerAMP.

PowerAMP is an Android media player developed by a cool Russian dude by the name of Maxim Petrov (Max MP).

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!

Huawei Ideos Launches November 3rd Under A New Name: T-Mobile Comet [VIDEO]

For such a small carrier (the smallest out of the four US nationals), T-Mobile's got a pretty good selection of Android smartphones - the now infamous G2 from HTC, the Samsung Vibrant, and the Motorola Charm being just a few. Well, it looks like Huawei may be adding their own phone, the Comet (previously known as the Ideos), to that heap come November 3rd, along with a 3MP camera, GPS capabilities, and the Swype keyboard out of the box.

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.

Cyanogen Demos HTC Fast-Boot-A-Like On Nexus One

This is what happens when you try to one-up the open-source community. Just when we were beginning to think HTC Sense might have come up trumps with a real killer feature in their Fast Boot, CyanogenMod creator Steve Kondik's right there with a cheeky "Yeah, CM6 "does" too :)". Tweeting that the feature will be committed to the CyanogenMod source soon (possibly with the arrival of version 6.1), Cy noted that the Nexus One would likely last in this hibernation state for about a week.

HTC Launches 4 New Promotional Videos For Desire HD, Desire Z, EVO 4G, And Droid Incredible

The new HTC Desire HD and Desire Z handsets are coming very soon, and we're incredibly excited about both of them (just take a look at that 5-second Fast Boot technology again).

In order to keep our excitement going, HTC just pushed out a new video of these bad boys flying up in the air, showing themselves off in various ways. I even got slight chills a bit at the end but I think it's mostly due to the epic music selection.
