The Tilt Toward Android Is Only In Its Infancy

,----[ Quote ]
| Just yesterday, as Mobile Burn reports, 
| Skyfire's CEO Jeff Glueck said that his 
| company is stopping work on a BlackBerry 
| version of Skyfire to focus on Android, 
| noting carrier and manufacturer interest. 
| Not only are carriers and manufacturers 
| warming up to Android, developers 
| increasingly are. Google recently confirmed 
| that there are over 30,000 applications for 
| Android, and that the number doubled in 
| only three months. 


HTC Incredible To Be Officially Announced Monday!

| Guess whoâs bizzack? Anonimac! After 
| leaking the Incredible User Guide and the 
| Incredible Equipment Guide he made it 
| trifecta by hooking up our readers and 
| members with an internal email showing the 
| Incredible will probably be officially 
| announced on Monday!


Square Motorola Device Codenamed âTwistâ, Due in June

,----[ Quote ]
| We're anxious to see what Motorola has in 
| store for Motoblur, 1.5 if anything.  
| Judging by the picture of the phone, we 
| expect to see widgets to allow one-touch 
| access to turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.  
| It's hard to picture a radically different 
| experience this early on.  Our guess is 
| that it's subtle add-ons a la HTC's Sense 
| UI update.

| powered by a 1GHz i.MX515 ARM processo.

| 1,024 x 600 multitouch screen, between 4GB
| to 64GB of internal storage, a microSD

| 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, a USB
| 2.0 socket, audio in / out, 3 megapixel

| ambient light sensor and a 1,900mAh
| battery.


HTC Touch Pro2 Runs Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| This is probably another development that
| Microsoft wonât be too happy about, but
| itâs not like they can stop you from
| tinkering with your phone, right? Now,
| after the HTC Touch HD has been hacked to
| run Android, weâve got wind of a HTC Touch
| Pro2 running Ubuntu Linux 8.04. Of course,
| the OS is really meant for laptops and
| desktops, but again, nobody can stop you
| from having some fun, right?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
