Sprint Releases Overview Video for Motorola Admiral, Forgets to Announce Phone

Sprint has tossed a video online this afternoon which provides a walk-through of the features for the Motorola Admiral.  That’s awesome and all, but there’s no Admiral announcement to go with the video.  Considering that the Android-powered phone has yet to be unveiled we are expecting Sprint to pull the video down (or mark private)  in short order.  The 2:38 clip doesn’t do much to teach us anything we hadn’t already  [Read More…]

The day you’ll be able to get a fully functional Android port up and running on your HP TouchPad is fast approaching. The Cyanogen Team still has a few kinks to work out here and there, but the latest video shows off working audio, accelerometer, WiFi, Android Market, YouTube within the browser and even Angry Birds.

fring turns group video chat feature into an interested-based “Playgrounds” app

I’ve seen many Google+ users ask when the Google+ Android app would support Hangouts, and my guess is that it’s not high on the priority list for now. That doesn’t mean that users have to wait around for the chacne to have mobile group video chat. Fring already introduced that feature for up to four people to video chat in April, and it now  [Read More…]

Archos tablets are known for being cheaper, but they also tend to come with lower specs. Yet, we were impressed with both the announcement of these tablets, as well as the announcement of their prices. Archos now offers the great combination we all dream of: quality and affordability.

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: GO Launcher EX is hands down my favorite homescreen replacement for Android. Not only does it offer a high level of customization and compatibility with top-notch themes, but the GO Dev Team provides a certain level of polish not many developers can best. Today, the folks at GO have released an update to their launcher that adds even more of that signature  [Read More…]

LG Marquee

The LG Marquee made a cameo appearance tonight in New York, a night before Sprint and LG are slated to “officially” unveil the device at New York City’s Fashion Week finale. The Marquee is the next big device from Sprint (after, of course, this Friday’s Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch launch), officially landing on October 6.
