Mobile Roadie Now Creates Apps For Android Ecosystem

,----[ Quote ]
| Weâre big fans of Mobile Roadie, a startup 
| that helps develop iPhone apps. But the one 
| gripe we had was that Mobile Roadie was 
| limited to the iPhone platform. Today, our 
| wish came true as Mobile Roadie is launching 
| functionality for Android phones.


Google snubs Chinese Android developers

,----[ Quote ]
| But in January Google did postpone the 
| Chinese launch of two Android handsets - one 
| Samsung and one Motorola - saying that it 
| would be "irresponsible" to launch them when 
| the search giant's own future in China was 
| so uncertain.
| With no Android handsets launched it would 
| have been a strange developer conference in 
| Beijing, and cancelling the appearance will 
| put more pressure on the Chinese government 
| while making Google look good at home.


Quake 3 Comes To Google's Android Platform

,----[ Quote ]
| Almost exactly one month ago we reported 
| that Roderick Colenbrander was working on a 
| new open-source project after his once-
| popular NVClock program has since largely 
| faded away. Details were scarce on the 
| project originally, but we knew it was to do 
| with Linux gaming. Today we now know that 
| this project is called "Kwaak3" and it's a 
| port of Quake 3 to Google's Android 
| platform.


HTC Hero Review

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, this is a good phone for most 
| people, since it provides everything that 
| they need, however it has some lag, 
| especially if there are many apps running, 
| and it provides some limitations. Still, 
| android+sense makes this phone really shine, 
| and the lag has been reduced since the 
| original phone with one update, and the new 
| android 2 OS seems to bring some performance 
| improvements which could further improve on 
| this. However, this phone, to be great, 
| deserved much better hardware (something 
| like an AMOLED screen, snapdragon and 512MB 
| ram), a decent camera, a sync app for Linux 
| and only a few more pollishing made to the 
| android OS (full bluetooth support and paid 
| apps in market more specifically).



Qseven module runs Linux and Android on i.MX515

,----[ Quote ]
| iWave Systems announced a COM (computer
| module) based on Freescale's i.MX51 SoC
| (system-on-chip). The iW-i.MX51 includes up to
| 512MB of RAM and 2GB of flash storage, runs
| Linux and Android, and works with an available
| iW-Rainbow-G8D development baseboard, the
| company says.


Three short stories, all about Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Clearly, free applications exist for Android.
| But finding them takes work, which is silly;
| this is a perfect job for a computer. An ideal
| solution would be for Google to add a "freely-
| licensed" option to its (proprietary) market
| application. Failing that, it should be
| possible (for somebody with a bit more Android
| application-level programming experience than
| your editor) to put together an alternative
| market application which would focus on the
| growing body of free software for the Android
| system. It is an area worthy of encouragement;
| free software doesn't become less important
| just because it's running on a machine that
| fits into a shirt pocket.
