Did you upgrade to iOS 4.1 only to realize that there was no jailbreak available for it? Do you miss all of those unauthorized apps that you had previously? Fret not, my iPhone-touting friends, because now you have at least two options for breaking free of those shackles. It was only yesterday that we caught wind of the Limera1n jailbreak solution, and now today, you get another shot at the steel bars with the GreenPois0n tool.

Marvell’s 1.5GHz tri-core processor for tablets and smartphones

armada-200

Marvell appears to have made the first tri-core mobile processor. These tri-core system-on-a-chip solutions will be clocked at an astounding 1.5GHz. We’re hearing about dual-core chips from Qualcomm that do that now, but not tri-core. Marvell says these chips are designed for “ultra-low power, long battery life smartphones and tablets.” Really? Adding in another core […]

Windows 95 ported to Google Android devices

windows-android

For some inane reason, the crazy kooks at XDA-Developers have decided to port over a version of Microsoft Windows 95 to the Google Android platform. Yes, it means we’re going backwards in time about 15 years, but it means that you can relive your solitaire dreams on the go. There are actually two different versions of Windows 95 for Android floating about out there. There’s one version that is quite slow (just like the original!) but is reasonably stable. The other version isn’t all that stable (just like the original!), but it’s a lot faster. Pick your poison.

Firefox Home for iPhone is not complete, but a good start

firefox-home-200

I’m pretty content with Mobile Safari, I don’t need a full-fledged browser for my smartphone and I highly doubt Apple will allow something to go above and beyond the current native offering. We’ve seen Fennec (FireFox Mobile) get released for Android, and Windows devices, so naturally Apple iOS should be next.

Light Pool phone features 22 triangular LEDs, perfect for aircraft controllers

Toshiba

When things blink and flash they are cool, when they are in a particular sequence with multiple colors and sound, they are rad. You could say the same for the KDDI Light Pool clamshell phone. On the outside, you’ll see a total of twenty-two LEDs in the shape of triangular windows arranged in a criss-crossing grid-like pattern. These LEDs are meant to display a touch of personality, lighting up in 100 different patterns sequenced with music. Patterns can indicate an incoming call, email, or whatever you prefer.

Hanvon Chairman: e-Readers to replace cell phones

Hanvon

Chinese company Hanvon, makers of the Touchpad B10 tablet, are also known as Hanwang. Chairman Yingjian Liu during a keynote speech at Computex 2010, discussed the increasing popularity and evolution of the e-book reader. He proclaimed the strengths of the e-ink format and how his company was leading the way in his home country of China. Then, his declarations got very bold. He called the e-book reader the “fourth screen,” referring to TV, PC, and cell phone as the other three screens. He observed that some people say the mobile phone will replace the e-reader, but he responded by saying that the e-ink book reader will replace cell phones instead.

First Bada OS smartphone launched with the Samsung Wave

Samsung Wave Bada OS Smartphone

Samsung’s bada OS has finally reached retail and is making its initial debut with the Samsung Wave smartphone, adding another option to the ever-growing list of devices.

The bada OS platform was originally announced back in November of last year, but now we’ve got some actual hardware running it and ready for purchase. The Wave takes Samsung’s lineup beyond Windows Mobile, Android, and even the TouchWiz-equipped feature phones. I think they’ve still got Symbian going on somewhere too.

Going ablaze with Android-powered HTC Wildfire smartphone

HTC Wildfire

It looks like HTC is continuing with its old bag of tricks. Just as the company released several seemingly similar Windows Mobile smartphones for a number of years, it’s doing the same with the Android platform too. The latest addition is the HTC Wildfire.

At first glance, you could very easily mistake the HTC Wildfire for a number of other touchscreen-focused Android phones from the Taiwanese manufacturer. There really isn’t all that much that separates this phone from the pack, aside from its less than top-tier specifications.
