Now that HTC has finally made up its mind that it will be giving Gingerbread to Desire users, they still have to take care of that little problem which made them deny it in the first place. The Desire has only 512MB ROM which is not enough to contain all the awesomeness of Gingerbread, along with HTC’s Sense UI.
So as a result, the company has decided that they will be removing certain apps from the OS to make it fit on the Desire. They haven’t exactly given a list of what they will be removing as it is still being decided, however, they have been kind enough to let the users know that they will be able to download the applications separately from the Android Market.

It seems as though Facebook is in the making of a new app for iOS with some photo-sharing capabilities. Everyone who has used Facebook on his/hers iOS device knows that uploading a picture to the social network takes some extra unnecessary steps. Well this new super-secret app will supposedly give all of us the cure.
The guys over at TechCrunch are in possession of 50MB worth of insider photos and docs on this secret project and have kindly shared one with the world. That would be the one below. They say that much more is still to come, when they eventually sort all of it out. We’ll keep track to update should new developments become available. Read more »
Despite their differences, Adobe never stopped making software for Apple’s platforms. First it was the Mac and now it’s iOS. And why would they? After all, they too are making money off them. In fact Apple products are often used for creative work, the kind of stuff that would require the use of Adobe’s products.
This year they launched three applications for the iPad, Eazel, Color Lava and Nav. All three apps have just been updated and offer more features, that too at a lower price. Read more »
Google has integrated Places in the mobile version of their search site. So now you can search for a restaurant, coffee shop, gas station or an ATM with just a coupe of taps through your mobile browser.
The feature obviously requires your location so you must share that information with your browser. Then you will see restaurants, coffee and bars being displayed prominently on the screen. To access other categories you need to click on More. Read more »

The Nokia X7-00 is here and we’ve prepared a video and a couple of pictures for you guys to enjoy. It has a very interesting (not to mention geekishly charming) design and most importantly, it features the latest version of Symbian – Anna.
We’ve already seen Symbian Anna in action on the E6 messenger phone. It even came in touchscreen fashion but on the much smaller 2.46″ landscape display. Now that the OS has ample 4″ screen real estate to work with, it can give its best. Read more »
Swedish mobile technologies giant Ericsson have seen fit to leverage their wide-spread presence in the mobile industry and take a step into the consumer market with the launch of a new mobile money scheme. Think of this new scheme partly as a mobile to mobile PayPal service, it’s more than that but you get the idea.
Dubbed ‘Ericsson Money’, the service will allow participants to send or receive money and even withdraw cash. Read more »

Apple announced that iOS 5 will be coming to i-devices everywhere by this fall. They failed to mention any access to public API’s for developers to toy with in time for summer app updates to take advantage of the new Notifications Center. However that hasn’t stopped some developers and hackers from already making it happen.
Developer, WillFour20′s widget P.O.C
We gave you a quick look at the Notifications Center in the iOS 5 beta just a few days ago, and reported our full review thereafter. The Notifications Center was one of the most obvious new features in the upcoming release. Read more »
It seems there is one more thing that was not demoed in the iOS 5 keynote at WWDC 2011, nor was included in the developer beta and that one more thing is Nuance integration in iOS 5.
What this means is that iOS 5 may have speech-to-text input built-in, just like Android 2.1 and above devices. Now iOS does have some voice input capability, introduced by iOS 4 but it can only be used for certain functions, such as making calls or playing a track and even that is powered by Nuance. However, it seems with iOS 5 Read more »
The first iOS 5 beta launched soon after the official announcement at the Apple’s WWDC. As usual, it’s available for developers only and unless you are one or you managed to add your iGadget UDID into a developer’s account, then you can’t have it.
Fortunately, we got iOS 5 installed on two iPhone 4. Our preview is almost ready and should become available later today. And while we are crossing the t’s and dotting the lower case j’s we thought we might give you a little something in advance to keep you busy. Read more »
When Google announced the Music Beta service at the I/O conference, it was only limited to those in the United States. However, it seems now it has started rolling out in other countries as well.
Reports are coming in from Europe from people who have successfully managed to install the Music Beta application on their Android devices. The application, along with Google Books, is being pushed to the device automatically. Read more »
It doesn’t take a genius to note that thus far the Windows 8 tech demos we’ve seen have had a big emphasis on touch interface and share a heck of a lot with Windows Phone’s Metro UI. What is more Windows 8 will almost certainly be hitting a host of tablets as well as the next generation of desktops and laptops.
Those such as ARM have already demoed a few devices with some iteration of Windows 8 but what about Microsoft stamping their own branding on a tablet. Read more »
I must admit, I wasn’t impressed by the Nintendo Wii U when it was announced a couple of days back at the E3 2011. And the way Nintendo’s shares are going down, neither is anyone else. And now Firemint, the company that created the popular iOS game Real Racing 2 HD will be bringing wireless FullHD gaming over AirPlay to your TV screen, a feature that will kick devices like the Wii U squarely in the nuts.
Now currently, Real Racing 2 HD is able to stream 1080p output from an iPad 2 to a TV screen through the HDMI connection but with iOS 5 developers will be able to stream the same output wirelessly to an Apple TV using the new AirPlay Mirroring function in iOS 5. Read more »
Okay, so that’s not really the reason they cited but the bottom line is that those using bada handsets that have a WQVGA resolution display (that’s 240 x 400) will not be getting the bada 1.2 update.
That includes a whole bunch of phones like the S5250 Wave525, S5330 Wave533, S5750 Wave575, S5780 Wave 578 and the S7230E Wave 723. Read more »
