To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
Windows Phone 7 Concept: Not as Flat
With the upcoming and most expected Windows Phone 7 launch, several members have made their own graphic concepts on how devices should look and what they should include. This time, XDA member paperclips designed a concept WP7, which was featured on well known mobile sites around the globe.
The frame was made in brushed metal to meet a very stylish design in conjunction with some high specifications such as 1Ghz Tegra 250 processor, 1Gb of RAM, and a 4″ multi touch screen, just to mention some specs.
We hope manufacturers are aware of what users want on a mobile device and bring it soon.

[Concept] Windows Phone 7 Chrome
Title changed. This is named Chrome because Metro UI is supposed to be “chromeless”, whereas this isn’t. This is actually my first try at a phone render since I’m mostly just a designer for web and advertisements but I think it came out pretty decent. This is not only a hardware concept, but a WP7 OS redesign. Check out the “would be” specs under the original concept.
You can find more information in the concept thread.

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
