Dell “Looking Glass” 7-inch Android tablet surfaces in video

The tablet market is about to get even more crowded. Dell has already made an appearance with its Dell Streak handheld, but that only has a five-inch screen. Now, we're getting a good glimpse at an upcoming 7-inch slate, which bears a striking resemblance to the Looking Glass tablet PC we saw some time back.

Android to get Qik video calls like FaceTime

Unlike FaceTime, which only (officially) works over a Wi-Fi connection, Qik says that you'll be able to use its video call service over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. The interface will be similar to FaceTime with a full screen of the person you're talking to, shoving you into a smaller window in the corner.

Don’t confuse Viewsonic’s recently revealed G Tablet with the ViewPad we saw at IFA. This is an entirely different unit running Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset with Android 2.2 Froyo on board. Froyo you say? Yes, even after Google specifically announced that Froyo is not optimized for tablets.

Best Buy to sell Rocketfish Android tablet soon

The iPad is selling like hot cakes, but the only one profiting from the impressive sales of the device are Apple. Well, Best Buy has its own in-house "Rocketfish" brand. And these two factoids are on the verge of combining. Last Friday, Best Buy CTO Robert Stephens effectively confirmed the existence of an iPad-esque Rocketfish tablet on the horizon by sending out a tweet with the image of the device.

Sony Ericsson Cedar feature phone gets a little green

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.

Motorola Droid Xtreme pics leaked, coming to Verizon soon

Some shots of the upcoming Motorola Droid Xtreme were released this week.

Digital imaging tech in smartphones are really getting out of control as of late, we are expecting the next iPhone 4G to get some HD mc’lovin from Apple. If they don’t serve up some high-def goodness than they may be playing catch up to Android yet again.

Acer, Ferrari unveil Liquid E Android smartphone, 64-bit Ferrari One netbook

Nvidia supporting Google Android at Computex

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

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.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 available April 15th from Rogers

We had already heard that Rogers Wireless would have the Canadian exclusive on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, but we were left with little more than a "coming soon" when it came to a release date. That has now changed and you may be TimeScaping with the best of them very soon. Continuing with the Google Android revolution, Rogers has started to take preorders for the Xperia X10. This comes a short while after Best Buy jumped the gun by offering pre-orders on the phone as well.

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

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.

HootSuite Twitter app released for Google Android smartphones

Twitter really has become the hottest thing since sliced bread and it shows. For just about every smartphone platform, you'll find a wide range of Twitter clients that go above and beyond the mobile site. Owners of Android phones now have another option with the porting of HootSuite. What started out as a web-based Twitter client to be used on your computer, HootSuite has since gone on to infiltrate the Apple iPhone and now Google Android as well. Feel free to communicate with your friends on the go, TwitPic'ing everything along the way.

Google Android app downloads catching up to iPhone

Apps are an integral part of smartphones and their appeal to us. They are essentially enhancements for a device that lets us do useful, silly, fun, and important things. A recent study has broken down the number of app downloads per device, and the results are somewhat surprising. In a recent report from AdMob, app downloads of over 900 people were tallied and averaged to determine how many apps were downloaded per month.

Google Android overtaking smartphone world, surpassing iPhone?

Google's Android has seen phone shipments rise so fast that they may overtake iPhone sales and theres not much Apple can do about it. Google keeps up at the rate of 60,000 Android handsets shipped per day, according to Google's CEO Eric Schmidt. They stand a very good chance of dominating the market, and that includes overtaking Apple. Unless they make some serious advancements in the next-generation iPhone 4G, and open up the OS, we can say goodbye to the iPhone being the #1 selling phone in the world.
