With the market filled with Apple's iPad, Research in Motion's PlayBook and HP's Slate, taking back a plan to release a computer tablet that can compete with the big names can be detrimental.
“We plan to introduce a tablet that runs on the most reliable Android version … We are in talks with Google to decide on the most suitable version for our tablet and that is not Froyo 2.2.”
The decision might delay the roll out of LG’s first tablet PC which might cause another setback to the South Korean company. Being the world’s third largest mobile phone maker, LG is a slow poke in terms of booming smartphone market. LG’s smartphone, Optimus One, is yet to reach its one million unit sales mark and is betting that Android-based smartphones can help them get back to the recovery path. But with LG seeking to boost its loss-making handset division, their new tablet may come in too late to a suddenly crowded market led by Apple’s iPad.View Article Source »
Though Gmail's Android seems like trying, the make over seems to be a great improvement. Do you already got your new Gmail Android App already?
The Gmail Android App has gotten a whole new make over for devices running on Froyo OS. Gmail’s new version for Android provides users more access to content such as quoted text, replies and threaded messages. In addition to that, the latest Gmail feature – Priority Inbox – is also supported on Froyo-enabled devices. Owners of Froyo hand-held devices can also add shortcut to “Important” on their phone’s home screen. Other than Gmail features, there are also some improvements on user interface. The bar featuring the most important actions, for instance, sticks to the top of the screen no matter how down low you scroll.
When it comes to mobile experience, Gmail was significantly inferior in the recent past. However, this Gmail’s Android App iteration might make it a much more efficient and productive application.
If you’re using a Froyo device, get the new and free Gmail Android App from the Android Market, and don’t forget to comment on your mobile experience below.View Article Source »
WARNING! Do not load any unofficial Android 2.2 firmware upgrades, unless it's from Motorola. Otherwise, you will be stuck in the leaked version and you might not have a chance for some goodies. Are you willing to take the risk?
Motorola Support Forum posted a warning about users who load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been roaming around the web. According to the forum, there is no official path for the load that will be included in the upcoming upgrade this coming September. Do not be lured about the increased performance it can give. Otherwise, you might be stuck on the leaked version. The new Droid X has already a new software update, and it will give your phones some great benefits. In an effort to spare the owners of Droid X from the pain that other people undergo, Motorola made a list of items that they are working on.
1. Owners who can’t setup their Exchange Accounts, or who can get their e-mail but don’t get any notifications, on their Xs will be addressed in the Android 2.2 update set for early September.
2. Some users find that using Smart Profile will make their phone lose its voice. Setting it up on vibrator mode, will no longer make their phone ring anymore. If you are encountering this problem, Motorola listed a simple recovery steps to reset your settings.
3. The company is also making a change for deleting text messages, since many users gave their feedback that such feature is not a nice experience.
4. They are also planning to increase the Droid X’s volume in an upcoming software update.
5. Motorola already confirmed that VPN encryption is not working. However, PPTP encryption will be enabled in the software update, and they are working on fixes for other VPN versions
7. Some owners reported that their camera shutter freezes and can only see black screen. If you are one of them, you might want to check if your phone is qualified for a swap.
It seems that Motorola is not happy that anyone would hack and tweak one of their handsets. That’s why it is not a surprise that they are going to cut the owners with leaked 2.2 upgrade from their official software improvement. But isn’t it the risk that one really takes? Being stuck with a leaked version of a firmware that promises unlimited features? What do you think?View Article Source »
