HTC’s HD2 was a beautiful phone ruined with ancient software many reviewers initially concluded. It has some of the most advanced mobile hardware in the thinnest package available. Likely the last of HTC’s WM6.5 phones the HD2 was left to die with few updates from HTC and little marketing attention after it’s launch. DroidGamers does an in-depth review of the HD2.
All the major carriers either have a “4G” technology available or will soon be offering one. While they all seem very promising and fast none of them meet the ITU’s standard for 4G speeds. Technically, all of the wireless carriers in the US will be falsely advertising their services. With actual 4G standards still years away from deployment does this stand to seriously effect the image of actual 4G?
Speed X, so fast you’ll crash before you realize what’s happening. The X stands for Xtreme… or is it pure Xcellence. Whatever it is, I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s an Xtraordinary game. A tunnel racing game where great 3D graphics meet great gameplay with a slight sprinkling of frustration makes this a great game to play.
Beware, Dance Dance Revolution has gone mobile. You thought DDR and their offspring were dead did you? As a former FlashFlashRevoultion player, I know full well the addictiveness of these games.

About a month and a half ago we wrote about a Facebook game which is also available for iOS coming to Android called Happy Island. Basically in the game you run your own island and as you grow your attractions bring in income which you spend on improving your island. Well announced yesterday was that Happy Island has gone completely freemium.
Like puzzle games? How about shooter games? What about both meshed into one game and sprinkled with a little eye candy to round it all out? Yeah nothing like that really exists yet on the market that is any good… until now. Kalloc Studios just released their puzzle/shooting game called Runelore and don’t be afraid, it’s got some nice eye candy as well!
The racing game that everyone had been looking forward to is now available on the Android Market. It was originally called Deliverance, Reckless Racing has been long overdue to being released on the market. It was delayed a few times and then word about the game simply disappeared so it being available now suddenly is a surprise and a half.
