bbm with an Android?

August 25, 2010

Fist Tweetdeck now BBM. By the end of this month (August) an app called CrossTalk will be launched that will make it possible for users to Gtalk BBM users, or the other way, by the way.

“The ultimate IM client for Android and Blackberry. Supporting multiple protocols like GTalk, AIM, MSN, Facebook and even BBM! That’s right, your Blackberry friends are no longer out in the cold, message your BBM PINS from any of the other networks using CrossTalk. Now your Blackberry users can BBM your GTalk Android users or anyone else. It’s an IM free for all.”

I too still don’t understand the thing…

Finally motorola responds to the eFuse hype

July 16, 2010

All the hype about the eFuse technology going on, about droidx not beein hacked or mod. Well let me tel you what eFuse is, it is a very old technology brought out by IBM in this technology if it finds some eror or failure in its rom checking then it physicaly disables the circuitry using the silicon in the circuit. This was in everybody’s mind when the eFuse term was used alongside the droidx which will eventualy turn the droidx into stump! But engadget got in touch with motorola and they said that eFuse is not used to permenantly disable the device its a technology used to ensue that the softwares are approoved for the safety of the data of its users. This technology just makes the device go to recovery mode when the device attempts to boot with an unapprooved software! It will reboot once the authorized software is istalled!

Thats it! Well i guess it wont be long to breakthru the eFuse as the android comunity has proved to be very intelligent and hardworking! It wont be long for them to find a way out of the eFuse and flash custom made roms! T might be that the rom comes with an extra code that shows the eFuse that it is a authorized software or something like that! Well i think people are working on it as i write this post!

Apple Lies About their "Retina Display"

July 10, 2010

STEVE FAIL!!!
Recently I did a little bit of Research because of the 4k resolution thing goin on with YouTube.

And well i uncovered something some of you may find a tad bit interesting, Apple lied about their display on the iPhone 4…Yes folks you read that right they did in fact lie!!!

i dug around and found this http://www.clarkvision.com/imagedetail/eye-resolution.html

they state and did the math for us, and i checked the math as well just to be safe, and according to ClarkVision, at a 180 degree viewing angle the human eye, if it were a camera, would be equivalent to a 576. But looking at the iPhone, well any phones display for that matter, you wouldn’t exactly be looking 180 degrees now would you, so CV figured the math out on that one as well. In a 90 by 90 aka a phone in your hand or anything just in front of you, you would see less “pixels”, at only 324 mega pixels, just saying but the iPhone display is nowhere near that, and according to apple, their display is denser than the human eye can perceive, ya BS on CR-Apple for that one..just another reason to join TEAM ANDROID, GOOGLE DOESN’T LIE ABOUT THEIR DISPLAYS OPENLY (well i don’t think at all, but i was just covering my butt ;D  )

sometimes android stuff on there but sometimes not, just follow and see what you think about it, thanks guys

HTC EvoUsage Review #1

June 30, 2010

HTC Evo Usage Review #1

By: Netalya Smith

I’ve had the Evo for a week and some days and my experience with it is magnificent.

Usage:

The usage weighs heavily on the battery, I would check my friends’ stream and a couple of apps and next thing I know the battery is less than half full. Even on idle I realize battery depletion is great. Sprint released an update to make battery life longer, I will update when I get the update. The wifi doesn’t work while on the phone, but then again they’re updating that as well. The flash is really bright and captures everything in sight, and the front facing camera actually shows clear for a 1.3mp. The stock Qik app is no good after a while, it always force closes. I downloaded the Qik app from the market and the stock was overwritten; now it works properly. Qik is fun and easy, I can post videos to almost every social networking site. When plugging in headphones the sound is such an improvement! It’s like listening to a surround sound system in your ears! The screen is clear and shows every detail and every video look great, even if the video is crappy. The live wallpapers that came with the phone are spectacular! I’ve used each of them and watched how they get darker as the day goes by. I have done virtually everything with this phone and the 30fps cap is not noticeable [note: I came from an HTC Hero with had a higher frame rate]. The screen hasn’t separated for me, yet I am using a case that covers the bottom of the phone below the buttons. The main thing I would change is the wifi, battery use, and the random lag that occurs when doing a lot on the device. This is already being taken care of with the over-the-air update rolling out today.

Call Time:

When on the phone I realize the screen turns off as you place it to your face, this is a handy feature when not wanting to accidentally press a button. Then removing the phone from your face the light then turns back on, this is a much needed feature that I am happy was added. The call clarity seems clearer and my friends have stated I sound clearer since switching phones. The call app still stays running long after hanging up, this is a disappointment because it uses a lot of battery. I was able to talk for 4hours straight without it dying or begging for a charger, which was great.

MISC:

This phone hasn’t stopped impressing me since I brought it. Not only is it fast, clear, and easy to use but you can now search your whole phone for files. The stock Gtalk app kept signing me out when the screen was off, for I downloaded an alternative app called Nimbuzz it’s just like gtalk. This phone is roomy enough for Swype. This phone can do a lot that its predecessors wished they could.

These little features mentioned really help the user with ease of access and enjoy the phone for what it is, a smart phone.

For Sale: Motorola Droid A855 (Verizon)

June 30, 2010

Who wants an inexpensive DROID?!?!?!?!

Well here’s the deal. July 15th, I will be ordering a shiny new Droid X from Verizon Wireless. What will I do with my old device? Sell it of course!

So here’s the deal. I will include:

  • Motorola Droid A855 Smartphone (Verizon Wireless)
  • —-This device is ROOTED, and it will come with Stock 2.2 FroYo installed, unless you want another ROM (Cyanogen, Bugless Beast, JRummy, whatever!)
  • One 16GB MicroSD Card, totally clean and ready to be filled to the brim with whatever your hearts desire
  • TWO Hard Snap on covers. One translucent BLUE, with a blue CyanogenMOD Sticker (courtesy of our friends @GrafiXpressions), and one WHITE Cover, with a black Android logo sticker (again, courtesy of our friends @GrafiXpressions)
  • 1 Charger / USB Cable
  • 1 Verizon/Motorola Multimedia Stand
  • 1 Verizon/Motorola Car Mount Dock
  • 1 Official Verizon / Motorola Droid Battery (duh)

my current asking price is $275 for everything + $10 for shipping. Now, let’s do the math here. If you don’t have an eligible upgrade on your account, you are looking at paying $550 (Full Retail) for a new Droid, or $289.99 for a Certified Pre-Owned Droid (assuming Verizon’s warehouse HAS them in stock. Good luck.) This is just for the phone / charger / battery. Nothing else. Good deal right?

Again, this will become OFFICIAL After July 15th (thanks to shipping, probably looking around the 20th of July).

Feed: Android 2.2 Upgrade List: Is Your Phone Getting Froyo?

Google’s newest version of its Android operating system, Android 2.2 — better known by its nickname, “Froyo” — is expected to start hitting handsets any day now.

Seriously, THIS IS THE DROID YOU'RE LOOKING FOR!!! #DroidX

June 16, 2010

Motorola Blur / Android: We confirmed that the Droid X was running Android 2.1 with some new sort of Motoblur (perhaps Ninjablur) skin. We didn’t get to configure Blur with our social networks and contacts, but it didn’t seem as “in your face” as the original. There’s also a new navigation bar along the bottom that lets you easily jump to different Android panes. We can’t really make a call on how we feel about this new Moto skin, but it does feel like a major improvement and it absolutely didn’t slow down performance. We should also mention that preloaded on the phone was a Blockbuster application and a DLNA type app. Those two pieces combined with the fact that there will be a separate HDMI dock available has us thinking multimedia is the focus here.Screen: Apparently the Droid X has a 4.4-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution screen, though we couldn’t confirm that on the device itself. Regardless, it was super crisp and the capacitive screen was mighty responsive to taps and multitouch gestures. Our one concern is the mirrored trim around the screen — it makes the whole face of the phone extra glossy.

let’s just let that picture sink in for a minute. okay?

This may sound unprofessional, but….HOLY SHIT!  Seriously.

one more time. HOLY IPHONE KILLER BATMAN! Emgadget.com has the FULL SCOOP and photo gallery on this beast, the Droid X from Verizon Wireless. it will be OFFICIALLY announced on June 23rd at a MAJOR PRESS EVENT featuring representatives from Verizon, Google, Motorola and Adobe.

Wait. ADOBE?!!? Could it mean? Could it?! OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND ANDROID, LET IT BE SO!

The device will officially launch on July 19th 2010. Odds are, the price will be 199$ after 100$ mail in rebate with new contract. Some facts from Engadget:

Hardware: From afar, the Droid X looks like the EVO 4G, but up close the differences are obvious. Its slightly longer and wider, and it has four physical buttons along the bottom of the screen rather than touch-sensitive ones like those on the EVO. In hand, the phone feels really solid and we were surprised at how light it felt, though we could really do without the hump on the back. And yes, the large thing fits in a jean pocket, but not without slightly bulging.

So, it’s a solid beast. I like that-as my Droid can TAKE A BEATING. But we knew that, we knew the Droid X would be able to be damn near shot out of a canon, and used as a lethal weapon in the war on crime. What about that SCREEN!

Screen: Apparently the Droid X has a 4.4-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution screen, though we couldn’t confirm that on the device itself. Regardless, it was super crisp and the capacitive screen was mighty responsive to taps and multitouch gestures. Our one concern is the mirrored trim around the screen — it makes the whole face of the phone extra glossy.

So, it has an INSANELY high resolution. INSANELY HIGH. Multi-touch, check. Glossy screen, look’s pretty. 4.3″ scre–wait…FOUR POINT FOUR INCH SCREEN? HOLY TABLET BATMAN!

Motorola Blur / Android: We confirmed that the Droid X was running Android 2.1 with some new sort of Motoblur (perhaps Ninjablur) skin. We didn’t get to configure Blur with our social networks and contacts, but it didn’t seem as “in your face” as the original. There’s also a new navigation bar along the bottom that lets you easily jump to different Android panes. We can’t really make a call on how we feel about this new Moto skin, but it does feel like a major improvement and it absolutely didn’t slow down performance. We should also mention that preloaded on the phone was a Blockbuster application and a DLNA type app. Those two pieces combined with the fact that there will be a separate HDMI dock available has us thinking multimedia is the focus here.

This is where the questioning comes in. Okay, fine. Android 2.1 at launch-but would someone EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THE 2.2 EXCLUSIVE LITTLE HELPER BUDDY WIDGET IS ON THE PHONE? Me thinks that if the phone DOES indeed launch with 2.1, it will have an almost immediate update to FroYo-if not come pre-installed with FroYo. As far as the Blur feature, it seems to just be a skin that you can disable fairly easially.

The camera is also said to be fantastic, as well as the MULTI TOUCH KEYBOARD. Seriously, this is a whole new generation of DOES. Check out Engadget’s coverage at

http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/15/exclusive-motorola-droid-x-preview/

There you’ll find some videos, and a rediculous photo gallery.

the force IS strong with this one!
