T-Mobile Garminfone looks confirmed for June 2 release

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems that your wait for Garmin's first 
| T-Mobile-bound phone -- the aptly-named 
| Garminfone -- might be a short one. We'd 
| already known it was coming in June for 
| $200, but this shot here makes it sounds 
| like June 2 is the date you should start 
| lining up in front of the store at four in 
| the morning (we kid, we kid) for your shot 
| at arguably the best turn-by-turn 
| experience available on an Android phone 
| today. You can get over the lack of Froyo 
| and a 3.5mm headphone jack, right?


Pandigital's Novel eReader: The Little Android Tablet That Could?

,----[ Quote ]
| Pandigital has unveiled an e-book reader 
| that appears to have many of the features 
| the iPad sports. Although its screen size 
| is smaller and its battery life is less, 
| its price tag is could make up for those 
| deficiencies: It will sell for a mere 
| $199. Also, it runs on Android, which is 
| drawing increasing interest as a developer 
| platform.


Android 2.2: A Developerâs Perspective

,----[ Quote ]
| So, on the surface, it appears that 
| Android 2.2 is goodness with few 
| downsides. Of course, with the SDK only 
| being available for ~36 hours, we may yet 
| run into major regressions or other 
| calamities. But Froyo went how I would 
| expect Gingerbread and future releases to 
| go -- the core remains largely unchanged, 
| new APIs are added you can optionally 
| leverage, and lots of stuff gets added 
| around and outside of app development.


Google open sources My Tracks GPS app for Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has announced that it has released 
| the source code for its My Tracks GPS 
| application for Android powered devices. 
| The My Tracks app allows users to record 
| GPS coordinates and visualise the routes 
| they take when, for example, hiking, 
| running or biking. The app also features 
| several live statistics, such as time, 
| speed, distance and elevation, and data 
| can be exported to other Google services 
| like Google Spreadsheets or Google Maps. 
| The company says that it hopes that open 
| sourcing My Tracks will help to improve 
| the app and attract enthusiasts, 
| developers and third-parties.



Android running on iPhone 3G

,----[ Quote ]
| Wang said that next up is audio support:
| âWeâve already laid the groundwork for
| audio support on the 3G and gotten it
| working in our homemade bootloader, so
| support for audio in Linux/Android will be
| coming in a few days.â
