Another popular iOS app has found its way on the Android Market.

All you need is an Android 2.2+ phone with Flash Player support and a solid Internet connection and preferably unlimited data plan and you are good to go.
Here are some of the main features of the app Read more »
The Optimus Pad is the weapon to help LG battle into the recently started Honeycomb tablet war. Besides its 8.9-inch display, Tegra2 chipset and 32GB internal storage, the Optimus Pad has a secret trump card.
That’s right. We are speaking about that dual 5 megapixel camera at the back capable of recording 720p 3D videos. Later you can watch them with a pair of standard red-cyan glasses. Read more »
Compact bar plus QWERTY keyboard plus Android 2.3 Gingerbread plus HTC Sense plus Facebook key equals HTC ChaCha. This is the shortest possible equation to describe one of our new guest today – the socially-oriented HTC ChaCha.
It’s a good looking and quite capable little droid with a great landscape QWERTY keyboard. We have to admit it’s the first HTC smartphone in a long time to break the line of boring designs. Read more »
Good news for those with Nvidia Tegra based Android devices. Galaxy on Fire 2 THD is now available for you to download free of cost from the Android Market. This is the special version for Nvidia Tegra devices but there is also a version for other devices which is paid.
Now Galaxy on Fire is a gorgeous looking game and I’m glad for all the Tegra based device owners. But I can see a trend starting here that worries me a bit. Read more »
The HTC Flyer is the first ever true tablet to come out of the HTC portfolio (those humongous Advantage things don’t count). It looks very cool and sleek in its white-slash-aluminum casing and feels very solid in your hands.
When you unlock this bad boy, you are greeted by the awesome HTC Sense 3.0, popping up on a 7-incher and it really lights up the entire experience compared to the smaller smartphone screens. Some might argue that offering only a phone-optimized Gingerbread instead of the tablet-in-mind Honeycomb OS is a bad thing but this has allowed HTC to bring the proper Sense feel to the Flyer.

As Rovio promised the next Angry Birds update is already available for download. It’s called Mine and Dine and gives us the beginning of a brand new sixth chapter.
The Mine and Dine update brings the first 15 levels of the new chapter, a new way to battle pigs (you get hanging stalactites in addition to the TNTs) and most probably there is a new golden egg somewhere. Read more »
This latest Samsung ad that I am about to show you is pretty cool and miles ahead of the last one, which practically was a total fail. You know, the one with the Tron crowd running into a single and a dual tunnel, showcasing the direct effects of dual-core power – with the Durex ad styling but worse?
Yeah, that one. Well this new one is way cooler and shows a young man doing incredible stuff with his hands and prompts us to “unleash” our own.
The art, practiced by this fellow is apparently called Tutting and is a form of street dance. In this case the body parts in focus are the arms. It’s cool and you should watch it. Here it goes. Read more »
Here we go again. Someone has discovered some high resolution images within the Twitter framework portion of the iOS 5 SDK and not just any high resolution images but those with 2048 x 1536 resolution, four times the current resolution of the current iPad.
Now we have gone though this before the iPad 2 was released. Unfortunately, the iPad 2 was launched with the same resolution display as the first iPad. But now it’s starting to seem that the next iPad will have a higher resolution display. Read more »
I’m sure you are all familiar with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software. It lets you input text or control certain functions of your computer just by using your voice. With the latest 11.5 update, it has learned a new trick. You can now send messages on Facebook and Twitter using your voice. All you have to do is say “Post to Facebook [your message]” or “Post to Twitter [your message]” and the software will do the rest.
But that’s not all. There is also a new Dragon Remote Microphone app for iOS, which lets you use the device as a wireless mic for your PC. Read more »
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 »

Among the other new features of the third version of the virtual keyboard are 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 »
