Droid Charge

Verizon's new Android handset, the Droid Charge, goes on sale tonight at midnight. The handset (made by samsung of course) runs Android 2.2 and features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front side. However, this phone is really gonna charge you (excuse the pun), at 300 u.s. dollars this is not the phone for a everyday phone user.

Android Honeycomb 3.0 Web Browser Demo

One of the best things about Android Honeycomb is the Web Browser, it is just like Google Chrome but put onto Android!!! Here is a demo I put together:

Androidify yourself

Hey guys, lately i've been trying to find some apps to keep me entertained on the bus/subway. I have compiled a list of 2 great time waster apps that keep me entertained on that long flight or keep my mind off that disgusting smell in the bus seat behind me, so, here they are...

1. Androidify

Don't you just wish you were good enough at photo editing to be able to make a android version of yourself for your facebook or twitter account well, now you don't have to be! Androidify is a fantastic android app made by google which lets you customize the green robot. Basically, you start off with the classic android logo then you can resize body parts and add clothes/hair/accesories using the idiot proof interface. The amount of time i've spent on this pointless app is depressing. This app is available on the market or on your nearest file-sharing site.

2. Atomic bomber

Atomic bomber is possibly my favourite android game ever. It is a never ending game where you are an atomic bomber (hence the name) bombing a whole lot of army bases (each base is a new wave). You control the plane by tapping which direction you want it to go in and you drop a bomb by pressing a button in the left corner. Be prepared for hours of bombing fun.

App of the week

Hey guys i'm going on holiday for four days this week and I can't post for a while so I'll do the app of the week now.

This weeks app is google goggles. Google goggles is a app where you can take a picture of basically anything and google will search it online. This is a very handy app and recognized everything I took a photo of. It even translates text if you put it infront of the camera! My recommendation for this is simply if you have a camera, buy it.

Here is a great video of some guys trying to trick Google:

You can download this app from the market or from here

Phones n fairytales

Once upon a time there was a shockingly slow man called browser. He was dumb, slow and ever so laggy. Everyone in the village (which was called android by the way) wanted the man replaced by a fast, efficient man like chrome (a man from another village), however, the village leader didn't change it. Soon after the villagers rebelled and started getting new men in like opera mini and dolphin. But still the men were just not smart enough, they were better but still not great. Then came xscope. A fast, efficient, smooth man with  many other qualities such as full tabbed browsing and multitouch. Soon after coming he bet down all the other browsers and earned the respect of many, however, he still needs more support and respect from villagers like you. Support him by downloading him from the market and rid the world of that slow man called browser forever.

HTC sensation

The HTC Sensation is the new device that the entire world has been talking about lately. We knew this dual-core device was marked for a release sometime this summer, but we could only guess when. Recently it has been said that it will release on June the 8th. So if you are a serious smartphone user looking for a new phone I'd wait until then. Of course it will be running HTC's sense UI so don't go round buying old, outdated HTC devices now, even if you're getting impatient. I'm not sure what version of Android it's running but hopefully a recent one.
