Scilor’s wifi Penetrate, available for Window Mobile
A few days ago, you might have read our article about an application called Penetrate which is available for Android devices. The tool had the ability (as its name suggests) to penetrate wireless networks and obtain the key for that network.

Thanks fly out to deovferreira who shared his database and some code from the Android App

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
