Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

We don’t see too many phones that are geared toward women, but Pantech has just announced its second Android smartphone, the IM-A630K “Crystal de Izar”. And this one is targeted at the fairer sex. The crystal styling at the bottom can light up in different colors, so I guess they think women love shiny lights.

Some specifications of the Pantech IM-A630K include a 3.2-inch WVGA touchscreen display, Bluetooth, T-DMB TV tuner, 5-megapixel camera, 4GB memory card bundled and of course the Android OS.

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

The ZTE X850 is the first Android-powered handset from ZTE and will target the entry-level market instead of the high end like most of the recent Android phones. The specifications aren’t too bad, except for the small 2.8″ 320 × 240 resolution touchscreen display.

It’s powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor with 3D hardware acceleration, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM, a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack and an integrated FM radio. The ZTE X850 packs Android 2.1 and supports WCDMA radio. It will be sold by China Unicom in China.

Samsung Galaxy S gets torn up and rebuilt for fun

Posted in Android by Shane McGlaun on June 14th, 2010

Some geeks really enjoy tearing up their stuff just to see what’s inside. I’m not that sort, but I will peruse the pictures of gadgets that other people tear up to see what is inside. The latest smartphone to get the teardown treatment is the Samsung Galaxy S.

It’s funny, I expected there to be more stuff inside the case of the smartphone. The folks tearing the handset down made one video for the teardown and another for the rebuild. This should be great if you have a Galaxy S and you ever need to fix it.

We know that you’ve been wondering what the Samsung Acclaim looks like. Well, wonder no more. This is the first official pic of the handset, discovered on Samsung’s site. The Acclaim is running Android and the slider also offers a full QWERTY keypad with a dedicated number row.

That cross pattern on the left may indicate some gaming possibilities. Earlier rumors say that the Acclaim will have a US release in July with a 3.2-inch screen. We should know more soon.

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2010

If you think that your phone was expensive, think again. The Ulysse Nardin Chairman phone is $50K and doesn’t even run Froyo. Instead you get 2.1. CrunchGear recently went hands on with the phone to see what you get for $50k. Turns out, you also get a dock.

A dock unlike any other, with polished wood panels, speakers and USB ports. Still not worth $50K, but we won’t tell the rich. Hit up the link to get the full scoop if you are shopping for an insane luxury phone.

Kindle for Android coming this summer

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Kindle for Android is coming. But hold your horses. It isn’t ready to download just yet. Amazon’s free Kindle ebook reader for Android won’t launch until this summer. When it does, devices with Android 1.6 and above (with an SD card) will let you search, browse, and purchase the books in the Kindle Store without exiting the app.

Kindle for Android features Whispersync, which will keep your bookmarks, last page read, notes, and highlights all synchronized across all your Kindle-enabled devices. You still have a wait, but it will be here soon.

Wii remote support coming to Android

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

Adding to the growing number of apps in the Android market, is the Wii Controller Demo, produced by Ryan Frawley. This fee software allows Android users to create a Bluetooth connection between their phone and a Wii Remote and then input information on the phone’s display.

This opens up some exciting long-term implications for gaming on Android. Frawley is still working on the software but it can already detect the presence of a Nunchuk and Classic Controller. Once the app is working the way they want it to, other developers will be allowed to use it in their games and emulators.

Posted in Android by Shane McGlaun on May 3rd, 2010

There are many people out there who want a tablet but don’t like Apple and are holding out for a better offering. This user might be interested in an Android tablet like the Aigo N700, and its specs have now been unveiled.

The N700 will have a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 700 and it will run the T20 NVIDIA Tegra2 platform. The CPU in the machine is the Cortex A9 1GHz processor. The machine can be optioned with up to 32GB of storage.

Sirius XM app for Android coming soon

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

iPhone and iPod touch users have had a Sirius XM app for about a year now, and Android users will soon be able to get in on it as well. Right now there’s still no launch date, but the app is “coming soon,”.

Apparently it will be pretty identical to the iPhone OS version, with support for streaming over WiFi and 3G. But it seems like Sirius XM is saying that the app will only be available for the Droid and Nexus One, which is strange.

Eken’s Android-powered MID for $100

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

This seven-inch, 800 x 480 device from Eken is selling for $680 RMB in China. That’s $99.53 to us. Seems like a bargain until you look closer. It has only 2GB of storage, which can be expanded to 32GB with SD.

Some other features include a VIA 8505 processor, two hours of battery life on a single charge and has Android 1.5 installed. So really, it isn’t much of a bargain after all. Oh well.

Android Market passes the 50,000 apps milestone

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2010

Let us play the Android Market’s overbearing Aunt for a minute as we pinch it’s cheeks and tell it how big it has grown since we last saw it and dig in our purse for a quarter as we pet it’s head. Though Apple is still top dog when it comes to its App Store, the Android Market is also growing at a very rapid pace.

The latest reports say that the Android Market has crossed the 50,000 app mark, which is about a week after Google confirmed the 38,000 app mark. 50,000 is still a way off from the App Store’s official 185,000, but at the rate it’s going, it’ll provide Apple with some healthy competition in no time.
