Samsung to launch Android OS iPod Touch competitor...

Samsung's Android-Running Answer to the iPod Touch Spotted

Samsung's Android-Running Answer to the iPod Touch Spotted













Given the model number YP-MB2 and looking like the Galaxy S, the Samsung Galaxy Playerwill run Android OS, have a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1 GHz processor, a 3MP camera, and Wi-Fi connectivity. [Samsung Hub via Tech Radar]

Wack...We need a generally released Android tablet already. Why the fark is it taking so long for one to drop?

I can't believe crappy Best Buy is about to be the first one to drop a damn Android tablet before the rest of the big companies do...SMH

I put this in the HTC, might as well put it here too.

This plain black wallpaper has been a real battery saver for a ton of Android users.

I've used it at work the past few days (without any task killers & 5 syncing widgets set to sync every 2 hours) and I've gotten great battery life as opposed to the Carbon Fiber-iish black wallpaper that comes stock on the Evo. 

When I do a full charge (more on "Full Charge" below) it stays at 96-99% battery for about 1.5 to 2 hours with this wallpaper, with casual texting/web surfing (With Wifi, 3g, & GPS turned ON). After that I don't really bother to check battery percentage, I just know I've never dipped below 70% after an 8 hour shift at work.

----------------------------------------------- long-press above for wallpaper

And about getting a "Full Charge":

I've been doing alot of reading about the battery problems. 

Especially those complaining on seeing a 10% drop in battery in the first 10-30 minutes right after a "full charge"

I found out a ton of devs have said that the batteries stop charging after they hit 100%. After that the phone feeds off the battery until out drops to 90% then it starts charging again. 

So sometimes (most of the times) when you unplug, you're actually at anywhere from 90-99% battery. 

To have a full 100% battery charge you gotta unplug from the charger as soon your green light comes on. Or if you charged the phone overnight, when you wake up, unplug it, leave it to rest a few minutes (to allow the conductors or whatever to stop charging). 

So after you brushed your teeth or shower or w/e, just come back and plug it in for a few more minutes while you get dressed and as soon as you see it turn green, disconnect it from the charger, and your phone is now at a true 100% charge.

This doesn't just apply to Android sets. I did a little testing with my friends (iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, BB Storm 2, my Evo4G, HTC Hero). None of us experienced a quick 10% battery drop like we usually do after a 'full night of charging'.

My Evo4G stayed at 99% for about an hour and a half on stand-by with GPS & 3G activated and a few things syncing in the background before it dipped to 98%. 

I alternate between JuicePlotter & Spare Parts to check battery percentage.

PS. I was a person that swore by my Task Killer, and I've stopped using them. I saw that it was doing nothing but draining battery. 

If I wanna stop a task that I think might be a vampire, I just delete it or manually shut if off (Settings - apps - manage apps- running apps - click on app & click 'force stop')

This.....actually....might....not....be ....bad.  laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif  This is pretty much biting the ipod touch HEAVY tho.

But they might as well make it cheaper that the ipod  touch and give everyone thats not an apple brain or doesnt have that much money to spend  on the brand name a chance to get a nice device.

I wonder how  much  it will be tho.

And i dont get the point of an android tablet if you have a 4.3 in phone.....its pretty much the same thing.

If you’ve been waiting for an Android-powered Personal Media Player (PMP), but don’t have the patience for Samsung to bring you their Galaxy Player, then maybe the GoGear Connect from Philips would be a better choice. (Which we first saw back in February.) That is, if you find yourself in Europe, and not in the United States. It looks like Philips has managed to bring the Android 2.1-powered PMP to digital retailshelves across the pond, if this new screenshot from Argos is any indicator.

Featuring a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, FM radio tuner, microSD card slot, 16GB of internal storage, and a battery life that should last you about 25 hours with music playback, and 5 hours of video. The PMP will also feature GPS. Unfortunately, even if it does sound interesting enough to give a second glance, the price makes us want to take a step back. Listed at €264.99, or about $340, it’s not an inexpensiveplayer, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, Philips hasn’t given any word that the PMP will be sold around these parts, so we’re not going to hold our breath for this one. Any day now, Samsung. Thanks.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$340  is pretty expensive.......but at least it come with 16GB internal storage AND a mini SD card slot.

(On a side note...why the hell doesnt Google chrome have posting options???

Headphones: When headphones are plugged in it auto launches the Music app, sets the media volume to max, and starts playing a playlist and turns the notification volume to 4. When the headphones are taken out it stops playing and quits the music app and sets the media and notification volume back
Maps: When the Maps app is launched it turns on GPS, when its closed it turn GPS off
Last caller widget: When I have to ignore a call when I cant answer for whatever reason, I just tap the widget and it sends a text to the last caller saying I'm busy I'll get back to you in a while
There are literally thousands of things you can do with it and the dev keeps adding new features.



this... sounds... AMAZING!!!!

my contract has been up but i was gonna wait for the iphone4... are there any droid joints with a front facing camera and can capture hd video? if one has both of those features then i don't need to wait for no damn iphone (i hate apple everything as is)

Android App Review: G4 TV

Posted on Monday, Aug 16, 2010 by Kyle Gibb

  

G4 has changed a bit since its birth in the TechTV days, but its new app is absolutely packed with features and awesomeness. Videogame fans have long had to deal with the mobile versions of popular gaming websites, such as Gamespot or G4's own version. These were often clunky and slow even on the latest phone. Navigation was a nightmare and often video was left out entirely. Join me past the break to discover how G4 has shown the gaming press how its done. 

The app takes a few seconds to load the first time, but after that it starts up pretty much instantly. Your home screen of sorts contains a scrolling ticker of picture links at the top, not unlike what we found in Pulse. These are typically the biggest stories, such as the recent Bioshock : Infinite announcement. Below it is a more standard scrollable list of the latest news, articles, and other tidbits that G4 posts throughout the day. 

Hitting the menu button will bring up links to the other main sections of the app, which include videos and a games finder. Hitting on "more" lets you access pages for specific G4 shows as well as a schedule of their programing. 

Going into the "Games" section, you can quickly find games under "Most Popular" or "Most Recent," which seems to be a list of games that have recently released. You can further refine these lists by selecting a platform of your choice. Each game has its box art, name, platform, release date, and score (if reviewed) for quick reference. Tapping on a game (in my case, StarCraft 2 because it is amazing) brings you to that game's hub. From here, you can quickly read the review, find news, or watch any related videos of that game. In my case, SC2 brought up the video review, the amazing trailer (which you truly need to watch), a clip of Morgan Webb and Kevin Pereira talking about the game, and a couple other interesting pieces. Video quality on my Droid Incredible was great over Wifi, with the video starting after only a few seconds and suffering from no lag or jitters once it did. Honestly, their video streaming is at least as good as what you will find in the native YouTube app, if not better.

The "Videos" section works much the same way. You can browse by most recent or delve into clips specific to G4's most popular shows: X-Play and Attack of the Show (AOTS). There is also a tab for G4's web shows if you are interested in those. Another great feature is the ability to search from anywhere in the app by hitting your phone's "search" button or hitting the little search icon present in the top-right. Using this, I was quickly able to find articles about Civ 5, for instance. 

If you aren't convinced you need to download this app by now, let me make one final appeal. If you are a gamer, you need this app. You need it because that Halo : Reach trailer only gets better with double-digit viewing. You need it because the Lions sure aren't going to make it to the Super Bowl in real life any time soon. And if nothing else, you need it so you will know Cops is on for 2 straight hours tonight. G4 has taken the time to show every other gaming press organization how it's done, and you really should check it out if you have any interest in gaming. So, get to the downloading! [AppBrain]

Not Sure if want


It's been looking hella laggy on every demo they've put out.

But here's hoping to a decent Photoshop app with layers, not like the crappy iPad one.

I'd be set with just an Adobe Air Illustrator app. PicSay Pro is already amazing at altering colors and images...

Adobe AIR coming to Android in Q4 2010

 Adobe AIR

Adobe this morning at the Flash Summit in San Francisco let it be known that Adobe AIR 2.5 will be available in the foruth quarter of 2010.

"The 2.x line has been about taking this broader," Adobe said. "AIR is about building applications."


Adobe isn't yet ready to announce how AIR will be distributed -- whether it will be OTA updates, or preinstalled on devices, but announcements are very much possible at its upcoming MAX conference.
