"Launching this month! Amazon Appstore for #Android" ---Millennial Media tweet

There’s no stopping the arrival of the Amazon Appstore for Android, but the question “When will come out?” still hangs in the air. But maybe we can see some shining light over a tweet by ad network Millennial Media which says that the said appstore is “launching this month.” Millenial Media also shared a couple of things about the Amazon.com – Android team-up and how it would be a “great opportunity” for developers to strut their apps. Unfortunately no particular details were shared.

Gameloft goes Unreal Engine 3 as the company has struck a deal with Epic Games to deliver four multi-platform games to the iOS, Android, PSN, and set-up boxes.

The iOS, Android and PSN cultists got something good coming their way as Gameloft announced a “long-term, multi-platform licensing agreeement” with Epic Games, Inc. You know what this means? Yeah, it means Gameloft is going to make sweet use of the powerful Unreal Engine 3; and four new games are well on their way, two to be released this year, while the remaining in 2012.

The games will be released across four platforms namely the iOS, Android OS, the PlayStation Network and set-top boxes. We won’t know what the games are going to be about, but we’re pretty sure that they’ll look (relatively) stunning. What else can we expect for something unreal as the Unreal Engine 3?

Same Roots for Aero and Streak, But Different Ends

Written on August 25, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

Like parents that boo-booed the perfect first baby, Dell came up with a second--the Dell Aero. But winging into the market as the PC company's first smartphone, it is presented not as a sibling but a first cousin to the shortfall hybrid Dell Streak.

Definitely without the tablet trappings, the Aero edges itself into a market undergoing an overly-induced growth spurt that makes it harder to compete. The question for any new smartphone at the entrance: Where does the difference lie?

Dell’s Android device starts with the right price: a unit costing $99 for a 2-year contract with AT&T. It sells $299 on the Dell website, the only current store location for Aeros. Not only does it cost less, it weighs less than most rivals.

Something from Sony is coming and they say its Smarter than before.

While browsing the web for gadgets, we happen to nudge a perfectly designed Website from Sony Style that really caught our attention. Wondering what it was, we searched and searched what’s the next best thing for Sony.

We happen to hear from reliable mouths that this is Sony’s countdown until their much awaited launch of the X10. To give a background, the X10 or Xperia X10 is a four-inch Android (again) powered smartphone.

Android Now the Market Leader for Smartphone OS Sales

Written on August 05, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

Android powered smartphones started outselling iPhones when the week opened. Now Google's operating system has also beaten former market leader Blackberry OS.

Market researcher NPD Group reports Android running at the top of the race in the second quarter of 2010. It has bumped the undefeated top-seller for already two years and a quarter, Blackberry maker RIM.

To give you an idea, this is how the three most in-demand mobile operating systems in the U.S. get their share in the market in Q2 2010: Android – 33%, RIM – 28%, and Apple – 22%. The increasing margin of Android can be attributed to its long line up of manufacturers. In contrast, RIM and Apple only depend on the sales of their self-manufactured devices. A recent interview with Google CEO Eric Schmidt reveals his predictions of how the company will fare in the near future: “This can be a powerful business, a 10-plus billion-dollar business.” And, if Android OS sales keep accumulating, it can be a powerful revenue source for this powerful business. What do you think?
