I mean out of 70,000 apps in the App Store I’d venture to guess about 12,000 are “pull my finger” apps. Newly added to the Android market are: Application screenshots Promotional icons Improved application descriptions Also added according to my bud at HTCSource are … [read full article]

Motorola And Magenta Marrying On September 10th?

Sascha Segan over at PC Mag (via Gearlog) has posted up an interesting theory on why he feels the Motorola event will be a T-mobile based launch. Through the simple process of elimination, Sascha explains one of the standout reasons. One of the keynote speakers is our dear overlord, T-mobile CTO Cole Brodman.

Donuts Served to the Masses

As the extending dessert list led us to believe, Google and Android has dished out Donut (well technically, they dropped new code for Android Donut).  Some people over at XDA Developers are reporting that Donut will be stuffed with system-wide multitouch, universal search, text to speech, automated backups, a new camera app, and somehow (supposedly) better performance (sounds yummy).  There also seems to be some CDMA support (for those lucky Sprint and possibly Verizon customers).  The … [read full article]

Another Android Video Leak

Thanks to our friends at Phonedog, we are getting a look at what is purported to be an HTC skinning of the Android interface complete with widgets, gadgets, lion, tigers and bears. Best guess, according to John from Phonedog is that its similar to the HTC Touchflo interface for Windows Mobile devices, this time just for Android. This doesn’t have the appearance of the “Donut” follow up to Cupcake, more likely just HTC going to work … [read full article]
