Samsung earned some serious brownie points – all four of the CyanogenMod devs that work on Samsung ports (“teamhacksung”) received a free Samsung Galaxy S II to help them develop a version of the Mod for Samsung’s new flagship.

The fast growing list of exclusive titles coming to the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY is shaping up to make it a serious contender as a mobile gaming champ.
Two titles have recently made an appearance in a pair of pretty awesome looking trailers, the first being Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard, a squad based 3rd person tactical shooter offering co-op multiplayer between three PLAYs or competitive versus mode with up to a maximum of 10 players, not bad and the best news of all, it’s already out.

Yesterday was the kickoff of Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference for 2011. As you can imagine, we were all anticipating the changes this year’s keynote will bring for weeks before it actually took place. We even had a small poll going on whether or not there will be a new iPhone announcement even though rumors suggested there won’t be any.
Probably spoiled by Apple’s way of bringing new and innovative ideas to the table each year, I was hoping for something revolutionary, something that would rock my iOS-loving, iPhone-hugging world. Sadly all I saw were minor changes, most of which were already available one way or another. Read more »

Breaking news – it’s a Sensation! Yes, the new super droid from HTC has dropped by our office. It’s got almost every feature in the book, so we’ll have to do a lot of tests – and if you’re as impatient as us, you’ll want to join us for the unboxing.
The HTC Sensation is all screen – whole 4.3″ of it with qHD resolution (that’s 540 x 960) – and very little bezel. What hides behind the screen is a lot of processing power oomph – a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260 chipset with Adreno 220 graphics. There’s 768MB RAM in there too. Read more »
Does Apple have a genuine beef with social networking giant Facebook or is it just irreconcilable differences? The lack of a proper Facebook integration in iOS is prompting a lot of questions – especially now that we see Twitter embedded in and out. Apple execs also seem to go out of their way to keep Facebook out of the conversation.
Rumor has it, Apple and Facebook supposedly had some talks about involving Facebook into Apple’s own music social network attempt – Ping. Sadly we’ve seen no progress so far. Steve Jobs had a comment for those fruitless talks, saying that Facebook had “onerous terms”, to which Apple couldn’t agree on. Read more »
Well in typical Cupertino fashion the new promo video is out for the premiere features in the latest iOS version – 5. The seats at the WWDC keynote hall are still warm and we’re hurrying to bring you the latest news.

They’re the ones talking us through the various key features of the new iOS release. Read more »

Angry Birds fans rejoice as the original title will get a whole new and exciting episode very soon. Details are scarce and there’s no info on how many levels Rovio will release, but the game’s track record would suggest at least 30.

It all sounds cool and definitely fresh, just like Rovio has always done it with its popular title. Read more »

A couple of days ago Josh Phillips, Program Manager for Windows Phone Engineering posted about a bunch of enhancements coming to both Music and Videos in the upcoming Mango update on the Windows Phone Blog. The changes come on two levels, some proper additions and some background tweaks.
Firstly there’s the addition of Smart DJ, using “seeds” i.e. an artist, album or song, it congregates music from your library and makes various mixes to suit genre or mood. If you have a Zune Pass music subscription, it can pick from the bounty of tracks on the Zune catalog as well. Read more »
What if I was to say that we have in our mitts a device that is to end forever the reign of affordable mp3 players? Well, I could be wrong but the W8 seems to pack a lot of bang for a device of its miniscule stature and it doesn’t seem afraid to use it.
Sony Ericsson decided to relight an old flame in the face of the Xperia X8 by giving it a Walkman branding and sending it off into the unknown pockets of young, enthusiastic teens with affiliations for loud music. It has a 3” capacitive display of HVGA (320 x 480) resolution, 3.2 MP camera and the pocket-friendliness of its small body. And this just might be the only Walkman phone that has no orange coating whatsoever on its body. Read more »
After following the smartphone announcements lately, I kind of wish I lived in Korea. Barely two weeks after Pantech unveiled the world’s first Android smartphone with a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, KT Tech released Take Janus (yup, this is its name) with similar specs, and only for the Korean market again.
As you can see from the picture, the specs of the device are nothing short of fascinating. Read more »
