Looking for a New Way to Take Notes on Android?

Aside from contributing to the ubiquity of social networking, one of the main functions of the modern PDA-type device is to help us remember things that we would otherwise forget. That's why note taking apps are both incredibly important and remarkably abundant on every mobile OS. With apps like Color Note and Evernote, you would think that Android has...

De-Sensed Honeycomb for the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G

When the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G were announced at Mobile World Congress 2011, many were disappointed to discover that not only would the pair of devices feature single-core processors, but that they would also ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Despite these issues, the Flyer and EVO View 4G ultimately gained popularity due to...

Google’s Dianne Hackborn Dispels Android Hardware Acceleration Myths

There's been much fervor regarding Google's inclusion of "full" hardware acceleration into Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. And this is with good reason---the 2D software rendering in Android 2.x made for a noticeably less smooth experience than competing OSes. While the inclusion of a greater extent of hardware acceleration into the OS is a wonderful thing, there...

New Concept For Hardcore Browsing – Introducing Dual Screen Browser For Honeycomb

ASUS Transformer Boasts a 500Gb Hard Drive

A thing of fairytale, the idea of 500Gb storage on a tablet. Especially on any device we own, it's something no one has seen or heard of, only complained about. The ASUS Transformer, for me, really is the peak of progression. It was the product we, in the technology community, had been waiting for for a very...

Sony S Tablet Forums Added

It looks like the rumors were indeed true and Sony decided to make their late, yet expected appearance in the wonderful and incredibly competitive world of tablets. The Sony S is a nice and sleek tab with pretty much the same features as most Honeycomb equipped tablets. The main difference is actually the ergonomic design...

Porting Puccini To The Transformer

Elegant and useful. That is my personal view on Sense roms. The version of Sense found in the HTC Flyer and its variants is certainly not the exception to this rule and ever since the release of the leaked system dump from the Puccini (AT&T's version of the tablet), people throughout the site have been...

Motorola XOOM Now Rocking 4G-Capable Rooted 3.2.2!

It should. The Tiamat team member has plenty of ROM, kernel, and recovery work under his belt. Now, the...
