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.

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.

Toshiba confirms Windows and Android tablets

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

Toshiba America’s Jeff Barney confirmed awhile ago that there was a tablet coming from the company in early 2011. Now Jeff has given some more information to Reuters. He says that there won’t be just one, but at least two of them and they’ll be out before the year is through. The first will be a premium model running Windows 7, about 10 inches in size and with two screens.

The second runs Android at a lower price. Nothing further on specs. Both are for “media consumption” according to Barney. He sees slates as “expansive like netbooks.” You can take that to mean that they won’t take away from the company’s laptop business.

We’ve seen plenty of iPad clones, but Moonse’s new E-7001 tablet will sell for as little as 900 Chinese yuan (or about $130) if it is ever available. For that price you get a 7-inch touchscreen, a 600MHz Rockchip RK2808 processor (which might be upgraded to a Cortex-A8 before launch), Android 1.5, an SD card slot, built-in WiFi, and five hours of battery life.

It’s a bit thicker than an iPad, and supposedly weighs just 0.7 pounds, which is about half the iPad’s weight. There’s also a front-facing camera and a USB port.

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

The Android Market still may not have the sheer volume of apps that Apple enjoys, but they are quietly catching up. In March alone, over 9,000 applications were added. Of course, with more apps come more junk and redundancy, but that is to be expected. That might be a problem as it grows.

But for now, this is impressive growth and it looks like things are only getting better. The android market went from a 5,532 app increase in February to a 9,330 increase in March. Right now there are over 27,000 apps in the Android Market.

Is this the LG Aloha?

There’s no palm trees, no coconuts, and it won’t play Hawaii 5-0, but this might just be the LG Aloha. Until now we haven’t seen any official pictures of the LG Aloha, but some people think that this may be it.

There’s no way to know for sure, but this one is supposedly called the LU2300, while we heard that the Aloha is the C710. The specs are pretty sweet though boasting a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Android 2.1, 3.5-inch AMOLED display, 800 x 480 WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, 720p video and an Optical trackpad.
