The London Eye has been given a little taste of Android. Each capsule on the giant big-wheel that towers over the city has been given a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
In partnership with the current sponsors of the tourist attraction, each Tab has been pre-installed with a custom app giving you an interactive guide of the scenery. We’d love to be able to show you this in all its glory, [Read More...]
Google is providing extra resources to developers looking to create or improve Android apps. Announced last night via a Reto Meiers post on the Android Developers Blog, Android Training is a new set of classes and tools that “demonstrate best practices for solving common Android development problems.” And that education is all free.

The Android Market is the number one source of apps for most Android users. Its great variety of applications, integration with Google Apps and simplicity makes it unbeatable by any other third-party Android app store, for now.

Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs have been coming out of the woodwork for the past couple weeks now, but there are none as anticipated as CyanogenMod 9.

Now is apparently the time though, as quite few people are starting to get an update labeled ” 184.108.40.206-20111107″ on their devices.

With a smartphone and an internet connection you can take care of just about any travel arrangement necessary (and unnecessary). That single device you own can be used to book everything from flights to hotels and can also be used to take care of everything in-between (directions, restaurants, bars and attractions).

The HTC Flyer may not be running Honeycomb or have a dual-core processor, but it’s certainly one of the most unique Android tablets currently on the market. The only real flaw we found with the HTC Flyer was its price. In the US the WiFi HTC Flyer is priced at $ 499. Prices in Europe were even more ridiculous.
