One of the best things about Android is the customisation options available. So when the Nokia X was announced only for it to be confirmed there would be no Google services integration, developers everywhere simply took that as a challenge.
Nokia still make arguably the best hardware out of all smartphone manufacturers, and fans have been longing for a Nokia running Android. However, given the integration with Microsoft, Nokia chose to remove the Google services (Gmail, Play Store etc.) and [Read More...]
Back during CES 2012 Acer showed off something called Acercloud, a new service from them much like Apple’s iCloud services in the fact it will keep documents and media libraries in the cloud with sync being offered across their line of smartphones and tablets.
Jumping forward to the present, Acer apparently just won the iF Product Design Award for outstanding achievement in design with a AcerCloud enabled device called the Acer CloudMobile [Read More...]

Sonic the Hedgehog 4, episode 1 has been one of the funnest games I’ve played on PSN. Sonic 4 stuck to the tried and true 2D nature of Sonic games, allowing me to relive the glory days of my youth. Sadly, episode 1 skipped Android when it made its way to mobile platforms, with only iOS users being able to enjoy the game.
Today, SEGA has announced they are hard at [Read More...]
When will Electronic Arts take Android seriously? The developer already has several games available on the Android Market, but most have been disappointing and received more 1-star reviews than 5-star reviews. Hopefully things get turned around this fall when the classic survival horror game Dead Space is ported to Android.
No press releases have gone out, but Samsung was showing off a near-final build of Dead Space running on a [Read More...]
We’re getting a little too excited over this little feature, but it’s one we’re happy to see on another phone. See those three dots we’re circled in Samsung’s teaser of what’s to come next week at CTIA? Those point to probably contact charging.
That’s a feature that never quite took off like we’d hoped. We first saw it on the Nexus One with the desktop dock and car dock, and later on [Read More...]

No, you’re not having a flashback to 2005. Rumor has it that Motorola is working to bring back one of the most popular phones of its time, the RAZR. Obviously it was phased out by newer devices with different operating systems, so they’d have to make a few changes. The photo above was supposedly taken with the Motorola Slimline, a device that was leaked during that Moto [Read More...]
With Samsung having now officially announced the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, Rogers in Canada has wasted no time in letting folks know they will be one of the first carriers with the device. While Rogers LTE coverage at this point is still rather limited, come Sept 28 it will be expanding;
Customers in Toronto and Ottawa can be among the first in the world to experience [Read More...]
We’ve seen the HTC Holiday in the wild already, but it’s nice to see a second device get caught on camera. This time around the phone is a little less broken and looks a little different since it does not feature the three connection pins on the two-toned back panel that we saw last time. Specs on the HTC Holiday include a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, [Read More...]
