Sony Ericsson Cedar feature phone gets a little green

Sony Ericsson Cedar

The newly revealed Sony Ericsson Cedar cell phone doesn’t look like much, but this affordable handset is actually quite elegant in its presentation. It’s not a smartphone, but appears to offer integrated Facebook and Twitter access. That’s a good start. You may also notice beyond the elegant design, that the Cedar makes uses of recycled plastics, offers a lower power charger, comes with an e-manual, and is wrapped up in compact packaging.

Nvidia supporting Google Android at Computex

nvidia-200

The big bang of computing devices into the mobile space clearly looked like Apple’s iPhone. But as this new universe cools and expands at an unthinkable rate, the early constellations are coalescing around (Google’s) Android’s impressive gravitational field. At the annual Computex show in Taipei, Apple’s iPad has once again set the bar; the hip device this year is the tablet. But where Microsoft’s Windows and Android are both represented, a clear preference for the Android is emerging (sorry again, Steve Ballmer).

“Windows is too big and it’s too full featured for smartbooks and tablets,” Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO at Nvidia said, speaking with reporters in Taipei on Monday. Smartbook is a term used to describe low-cost laptops containing processors designed by Arm instead of x86 chips from Intel or Advanced Micro Devices. “The good news is that we finally have an operating system to unite behind. Android is an operating system that has gained a tremendous amount of momentum all over the world,” Huang said. Strong words in an industry still ruled by Microsoft’s founding principles of fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

Garmin-Asus A10 touchscreen smartphone runs Android

Garmin Asus A10 Android GPS Smartphone

The standalone GPS market isn’t nearly as hot as it has been in years past, so many people are moving toward “convergence” devices that can do GPS and more. Garmin is aggressively expanding its smartphone line with the new Garmin-Asus A10 in response to this new trend. This follows up on the nuvifone from AT&T and the Garminfone with T-Mobile. A good move on Garmin’s part, I’d say, since they can continue to sell hardware to the growing navigation-centric smartphone market.

Google’s Android Marketplace to unleash a wrath on Apple’s iPhone

g

A leaked legal document distributed by the digital freedom crusaders EFF, discovered the legal red tape Apple binds its iPhone developers by. Truly draconian in nature the contractual documentation that Apple uses with developers for its systems allows it to reject any application developed even if the application meets the iPhone’s requirements.

Absolutely no reverse engineering for the iPhone’s operating system, nor any reverse engineering for the iPhone software development kit is permitted.
