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.

Apple teams up with Adobe for iPhone FlashThe economy may be in the crapper, but Apple hasn’t really noticed. They just keep on keeping on, selling iPods, iPhones and Macs to a hungry public. Apple just reported a $1.21b profit on revenues of $8.16b, making it another record quarter.

This when Mac sales fell three percent compared to last year. Luckily for them it was offset by a three percent increase in iPod sales (mostly the iPod touch), while iPhone sales jumped 123-percent.

Albatron 22-inch multi-touch LCD coming in MarchAlbatron doesn’t waste any time. After Microsoft announced Windows 7 would natively support multi-touch displays, Albatron was one of the first to quickly create a prototype panel to take advantage of that functionality. Here we are, seven months later and the company is ready to let you buy one.

Of course, they are also using this opportunity to talk up their optical touch tech. It features sensors embedded in the bezel instead of the surface. Apparently this results in a brighter image with greater durability. Albatron is planning to release its 21.5-inch LCD in March. Details are scarce but we can tell you that the display will support 120Hz, with DVI and VGA inputs, and that it relays touch information to the PC via USB.
