The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

XDA Exclusive: HTC Knight (Updated)
Thanks to a source of ours, we got some news about a new phone coming to Sprint. The phone is called the HTC Knight and runs Android. However, we are unsure of what version exactly. It has a sliding screen, which indicates some sort of keyboard based on the following text from an XML file.
3. Make sure to activate your device before you operate the handset by setting up the Google account on the device. 4. To view the contacts on the device, select “Contacts” and push “Menu” button, select “Display group > All contacts > OK”. 5. Do not slide screen in/out during the operation.
It also looks like an Evo and has the same micro USB plug. For now, all we have is this one image of the device. Our source stated that they usually get this sort of info 2 weeks before release, but the source also received some other content indicating that release may be closer than expected. We will try to get more information on this as soon as we can.
Update 17:17 PDT: Thanks to our source, we found out that the screen size will be 3.7 inches, which is same as the Nexus One.

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...
