Android 3 aka Gingerbread Details Leaked

Thanks to a tip from XDA member M_T_M, we have learned that Google is not exactly sitting down, patting themselves on the back for the success of Froyo. As it turns out, Google devs are actively working in the next installment of their increasingly popular Android OS. This new version will be known as Android 3.0, codename Gingerbread, and it seems to be fit for mostly high end devices.

According to the article found in the website unwiredview.com, the OS will be designed to put our higher end devices to the test. The minimum requirements for the OS to run properly are along the lines of 1 GHz processors, 512 MB RAM, and a 3.5 inch screen (1280 x 760 of resolution will be an option whenever a device with these screens becomes available). Please keep in mind that these are all minimum specs! So, if you are expecting the next best Android phone to make you a cup of coffee while you are doing your chores, this OS might have enough oomph to do just that.

The details are still scarce but it seems that we should see something made public sometime in October, so keep your eyes peeled.

Please go to the unwiredview to read the full article and for more information.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
