FEATURED: The New Droid Bionic!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well guess what Apple! You now have a new rival to face with now! Lets see if you can beat the new Droid Bionic. After all Android is a pretty cool OS and lets see what this new Droid Bionic has inst0re for us!

Well the Droid Bionic is finally here and after all the wait, it has finally been released. This is the only dual-core smartphone that is to work with Verizon’s 4G network. It will be available on Verizon’s store as of today! You want it? Come and get it! The price of the contract and phone (total) will be $300 with a 2 year Verizon contract and $590 for none. Well both do suck because you pay the same amount, maybe not for the $590 deal though.

Well watch out Apple because you have a new competition that is charging your way. Android is going to just beat you someday and this is just a head start for them.

Well, I guess you could say that this smartphone has some great features. It has 4G wireless, has a nice camera, dual processor for faster things to be done and to make sure that all your multitasking is kept. Other than all these the best feature yet is the Android OS being used on this smartphone. I’m not sure which version it is running on, but I’m taking a good observational guess that this is probably Gingerbread 2.3.4. It has to be one of those and it probably isn’t going to be Ice Cream Sandwich any time soon.

Has a few features like the iPhone, including Netflix streaming and even streaming to your computer. The graphics are just amazing with kind of like the retina graphics that you would find in an iPhone 4. There is a crisp, vivid display of the whole setting and has a great touch screen. It seems that the camera is 8MP and that the phone can be a 4G hotspot for about 5 Wi-Fi devices. Pretty nice, huh? It has many synchronizations to connect to Google, your computer and many other things. So far, all the things are powered by Google, including voice search, maps, and everything else. It has 16 GB of storage and has a few sensors that can add up the spice to the device’s functionality. It’s basically business ready for everyone.

The drawbacks are kind of obvious. Battery, energy, and costs can be just like the HTC phones in which you may have to pay $1,000 a year totally with the Verizon contract. With that kind of contract, everyone is going to wait until something like ATT comes to it or maybe even T-Mobile. The HD screen makes it comfortable for all video and movie watchers to enjoy the day. It seems that this could just kind of be like the HTC phone ,but I’m not sure about the cost, but all I know is that it’s pretty nice!

Well let’s just see the sales of this phone and observe whether it is time for Apple to go down as Android takes over or will it be the opposite?

QuickPress: Android Has Finally Updated Gingerbread!


After a long wait for most Droid 2 users it seems that of today, Google has finally updated Android 2.3 code name- Gingerbread. After most people switched to different versions of Android and newer models of Android supporting phones there seems to be a rocket boost for 2.3 downloads of Gingerbread. This new little update for all Droid 2 has a few new features that you will probably notice after you Droid 2 people update your software which is currently strongly recommended to prevent any hacking or any other problems that may occur for you normally.

It seems that Gingerbread 2.2 seemed to be a little buggy and the same features were played over and over again which just made it boring for Droid 2 users ,and Android moved on to put Honeycomb and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich on to the other devices that seemed to be much more compaitable for the Android to make a good marketing share and to make a good leap for it’s own good. If you are interested in Ice Cream Sandwich- Android 4.0 you can click here.

Is Hacking Good or Bad? Well Hack the TouchPad and Get A Prize. First Come, First Served!


 

You’ve probably heard of HP’s TouchPad going on a really big cut deal from $500 to $100. After losing to the iPad 2, HP decided to give up on the TouchPad, but before that kick it out into the failure box, they’re going to make a price cut to make at least some people buy it for $100. The question is, if HP discontinues this TouchPad, can anyone do whatever they want to this TouchPad?

I guess I would answer yes to that question. After HP had decided to discontinue the TouchPad, the prices dropped more  than the stock market crash. That’s about a 20% discount that you get. More like 20% downfall for the TouchPad. While more people come to buy this low costing gadget, there are people who are out there thinking about hacking the TouchPad to get the Android OS. Lets see why. Recently, a hardware modification site had just announced that they were giving away $1,500 to the first person who can get the Android OS on the TouchPad. Remember, first comes, first served.

Hacknmod.com had recently made news that anyone that had first hacked their own TouchPad to run on any thing based on Android, then that they would receive $1,500. I still have a feeling that something bad is going to happen to someone that hacks the TouchPad, kind of like geohot, the famous iOS device hacker. Hacknmod.com is setting out prizes for who does which type of hacking and what they will receive. If you hack the system and get the Wi-Fi, camera, multitouch screen, and audio, your just going to get another $1,050 to the bag.

While the whole Android modding groups are already up on their computer screens, scrunching up their eyes towards the computer screen and getting their best shot in hacking this device at all costs. This isn’t really the first challenge that Android modders have gotten in years. They have had Android up and running on the Nook, the iPhone, and even certain Nokia smartphones. The Rootzwiki website is already up and ready for this and they are picking out some really smart people to use for their team called the TouchDroid. If you want to try, check out their website: http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?t=3327. These guys already like, have an entire pack for the job. There main man: Thomas Sohmers. This guy is a 15 year old hacker who has gotten Ubuntu on the Xoom and has been the first guy to ever hack into the Google TV. I probably bet that this guy is going to do the job, short and simple. Their official website: http://www.touch-droid.com/.

Now HP, has a few things to look out for. People using Android instead of their OS, will just get them mad. After all Android is an open source software that actually allows people to contribute and use the Android to hack. I mean hackers hack because they can. If they have the power to do so, they will, and this world can be full of these type of people. Even I’m kind of a hacker, but not one that’s too into to it. We just now wait and see.
