When Google announced the Android Design website aimed at helping developers feel more at home with Holo, the theme used throughout Android 4.0, Matias Duarte made it clear that Android development was headed into the next phase. Google is looking to create a more cohesive experience when it comes to developing for Android for both manufacturers and third-party app developers alike.
One way Google is looking to do that is with [Read More...]
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is going to be the inaugural smartphone for Sprint’s up and coming 4G LTE network. The Galaxy Nexus represents an enticing smartphone option for die-hard Android [Read More...]
A while back we asked you to give us feedback on the new Phone Compare pages we were working on — this went so well we’re now putting out a sneak peek of the Review Pages, too.

A series of popular sites were tested and it was found that [Read More...]

The 1GHz Hummingbird and 512MB of RAM should make for [Read More...]
The Motorola Droid RAZR Does. We know it does, because Verizon has added it to the DroidDoes website to get things ready for pre-sale and release.

Seriously, Samsung, you’re really not doing yourselves any favors here. We ignored the story about the lawyer not able to tell the difference between a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and iPad 2 from 10 feet away. We weren’t there, but we’ve been in enough dimly lit courtrooms in our day, and eyesight can be a bitch.
