Google reportedly preparing to intro TV software next month

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's TV plans have yet to be officially 
| confirmed, though they have been rumored for 
| at least a month now. Consistent with the 
| company's strategy in other areas, Google 
| isn't expected to be involved in 
| manufacturing set-top boxes; rather, the 
| company is supposedly developing a version 
| of Android that would be especially 
| conducive to the big screen. Third-party 
| developers would then be able to write their 
| own apps for the devices, giving more 
| openness and flexibility to people's TV 
| watching habits.


Google Android 2.2 / FroYo: Successor Codenamed Gingerbread

,----[ Quote ]
| As FroYo has not even been released yet 
| details regarding Gingerbread are extremely 
| scarce, however we have heard that 
| Gingerbread will be based on Linux Kernel 
| 2.6.33 or 34, whether it will be Android 
| 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5 is also unclear.

Android in 2013: Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Making up for that, in part, will be more 
| high-profile open source applications on top 
| of Android. One pundit complained recently 
| that there were so few Android open source 
| applications. There are actually a fair 
| number of them, but pundits rarely can get 
| past brand names. And, truth be told, there 
| are few brand-name open source projects on 
| Android today. That will change, in part due 
| to Android's market presence (e.g., 
| Mozilla's Fennec will be reasonably popular 
| by 2013) and in part due to changing 
| technology (e.g., more brand name apps will 
| be written in HTML5 and therefore will run 
| on Android).



Googleâs TV App Platform May Be Announced Next Month

,----[ Quote ]
| Little is known about the platform so far; a
| report last month said Google had the
| ultimate goal of making it as âeasy for TV
| users to navigate web applications ... as it
| is to change the channel,â while an earlier
| report said that Google wanted to make it
| easy for people to search both TV content
| and web videos.

Vodafone launches its first, underwhelming Android handset (video)

,----[ Quote ]
| If we know you at all (and we think we know
| you pretty well) you'll probably be amused
| and titillated to learn that Vodafone has
| announced that its first Vodafone-branded
| Android phone will be available this May.


Acer Liquid E Confirmed On Rogers â Coming Soon

,----[ Quote ]
| Announced months back, it now looks like
| Rogers will soon be releasing the Acer
| Liquid E. There is no exact release date
| known yet but we will be sure to let you
| know as soon as we do! It isn't the
| prettiest Android phone, but we have seen
| that with Android it's usually the less eye-
| appealing ones that get all the brains and
| brawn.

,----[ Quote ]

| design set-top boxes running the Android

| software option for device makers. However,
