Amazon looks to be gearing up to jump back into the Android hardware battle but this time offering up a few different Kindle Fire 2 models as well as apparently working on an Android phone as well. While the Kindle Fire 2 release is fairly close according to reports, their apparent Android phone might be awhile.
We haven't reported on a unique Android running product in awhile, especially when it comes to possible gaming consoles that will run our favorite operating system. The last time we were reporting on a product like this was back when the EVO 2 gaming console was under development and looking for funding.
GameStop has been selling a bit of a selection of Android tablets for a little while now and it appears that they are planning to add one more tablet to that list. The Nexus 7 tablet (16GB model) will be added to their catalog of Android tablets available for purchase and GameStop has already begun taking pre-orders.
If you have been in the Android scene for any decent length of time then you know the Google team loves putting Easter Eggs inside each new version of the OS that comes out. Well after one day of people actually being able to fondle the new Jelly Bean OS (Android 4.1) while at Google I/O 2012, the first Easter Egg has been found.
As much as I like Android, there’s no denying the huge amount of fragmentation when it comes to software. Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the first day of Google I/O, and it’s only coming to a handful of devices in July. The Motorola Xoom, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S are first on the update list, but there’s no telling when other devices will be so lucky.
Well that certainly didn't take long with the insane amount of people trying to find every little tidbit of information regarding the two new products that are going to be announced right now during the Google I/O 2012 Day 1 Keynote session (which you can watch live here), those two items being the Nexus Tablet and Nexus Q.
Well one issue has been officially cleared up thanks to the Google Play store which has revealed that the next Android OS version named Jelly Bean will indeed be Android 4.1 and not Android 5.0. On a less surprising note, the first device to get this update will be the Galaxy Nexus.
Today is the day the Samsung Galaxy S III comes to the United States. It'll be available on all the major carriers eventually, but T-Mobile customers are among the first to purchase the phone. If you're among the bunch that can't wait to lay down a couple hundred bucks, you should know the GSIII from T-Mobile is more expensive than most smartphones.
So the Google I/O 2012 companion application just landed on the Google Play store and now because of one screenshot in the listing, speculation has risen up to the idea that the UI in this particular screenshot could actually be a preview of the upcoming version of Android codenamed Jelly Bean.
Android enthusiasts swear that vanilla Android is the best user interface for the operating system. Android device manufacturers tend to disagree. They depend on custom interfaces to give their devices a unique look that's unlike anything a competitor offers. Starting this summer, Sharp will introduce a new UI for its Aquos smartphones called "Feel UX."
The Samsung Galaxy S III was one of the most anticipated Android smartphones this year. The first two flagship Galaxy S smartphones were considered to be among the finest Android devices of their time. With so much riding on the Galaxy S brand, Samsung had to make sure that no information regarding the Galaxy S III leaked out ahead of release. Its methods for keeping the GSIII a secret went well beyond the honor system.
