Three new LTE locales for AT&T

AT&T LTE

AT&T this morning announced it's turned on 4G LTE data in three new cities. They are: Albuquerque, N.M., Reading, Penn., and Salt Lake City. We've seen a couple dozen new areas go live in the past few weeks. AT&T previously announced that it plans to spend $14 billion on its network over the next three years.

Granny Smith gets a dozen new levels

Granny Smith

If, like us, you're a fan of the Granny Smith game, head on over to the Google Play store and get your update on. There are a dozen (that's 12, for those of you with an affinity for numbers) new levels — set it space, no less.

Granny Smith is one of them newfangled Tegra 3-friendly games, with lots of physics (to say nothing of grannies and old dudes and dogs flipping around) to keep things interesting. If it's a little frustrating at the beginning, you're not alone. Give it a few minutes, though, and we bet you'll be hooked.

Jelly Update Finally Rolling Out to Verizon Galaxy Nexus? (Updated: It’s Official)

  Is the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.1) update actually rolling out to Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus at this time? According to the dozen or so emails in our inbox from readers who are claiming to have received it, we are starting to wonder if it is. The Build is JRO03O, which is the same build that [...]

Verizon 4G LTE expands to over a dozen new locations

 

Android Central

Verizon has continued their crazy fast expansion of 4G LTE network coverage this week with over a dozen new markets or locations. More LTE markets can only be a good thing, especially if you're one of the millions who recently picked up a Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) on Big Red. Here's a full list of the locations that went live this week:

  • Communities near St. Louis, Missouri
  • Richmond, Indiana
  • Rochester, New York (network enhancements)
  • Sunbury, Pennsylvania
  • Stroudsberg, Pennsylvania
  • Pottsville, Pennsylvania
  • Williamsport, Pennsylvania
  • Jackson County, Michigan
  • Syracuse, New York (network enhancements)
  • Binghamton, New York (network enhancements)
  • Greene County, New York (network enhancements)

With this rate of growth in the Verizon 4G LTE network, it's going to be hard for AT&T to catch up — and seemingly impossible for Sprint

International HTC One X source code now Available

And the hits just keep rolling today with HTC don’t they? For all the developers out there that can’t live their life without source, you will be happy to know that the international version of the TC One X source code has been dropped at HTCDev.com. The code is available for over 2 dozen carrier versions across the globe. All of which are the Tegra 3 toting versions. Sadly, the recently released One X for AT&T didn’t seem to make the cut. AT&T could have a hand in that since they are about as evil as Verizon when it comes to unlocking your bootloader and releasing source. That hasn’t stopped HTC in the past though. We expect source and bootloader unlocking to hit the HTCDev.com sometime in the next month or so. Or, at least we can hope.

If you are itching to get your hands dirty though, hit up HTCDev.com now and get your source downloading now.

HTC One X source code now available (unless you’re with AT&T)

Developers can now be a bit more flexible when they create beautiful Sense 4.0-based ROMs for the HTC One X as the device’s source code has been made available for download. Over 2 dozen carriers/regions are supported for this code drop, but AT&T – the lone US carrier offering the device right now – is nowhere to be seen. We don’t like jumping to conclusions, but considering AT&T won’t allow you to unlock your bootloader on this phone it’s probably not a good idea to get excited for source code. If you develop for any of the religions listed at the source link: have it it! [via HTCDev]

Samsung Galaxy Note For T-Mobile Spotted In The Wild

 

The existence of a Samsung Galaxy Note device for T-Mobile has been hinted at before through user agent strings and Android build screenshots. These pieces of evidence are compelling, but not nearly as exciting as actual pictures of the 5.3″, S-Pen enabled phablet. TmoNews has uncovered nearly a dozen pictures of the device, T-Mobile branding and all.

Still no news on pricing and availability, so these pictures will have to be enough for now. View them all after the break.

Treemaker is Like a Zen Cut the Rope, But With an Awesome Soundtrack

  Cut the Rope and Angry Birds knockoffs are a dime a dozen these days. Rarely do we find a game that mimics either of their style, but then takes it beyond into something that plays with the best of them, yet looks and sounds as good if not more beautiful. Treemaker is one of [...]

Amazon matches Google Play deals, curates own selection of $0.49 apps

This image has no alt text

Not to be outdone by Google and their name changing app store, Amazon has slashed prices on a selection of apps. Just as the Google Play Store is offering a couple dozen titles for a mere $0.49, Amazon has matched the price in their Appstore for offerings such as SoundHound, Quell Reflect, Asphalt 6, and more. You will have to do a bit of searching to find the deals, however, as Amazon has neglected to conveniently compile them into a single landing page. Apple fans, you may be getting your iPad 3, but we challenge you to find deals like these. The beauty of free market app stores!

Galaxy Note arriving at retail locations across Canada

This image has no alt text

Oh Canada! The Galaxy Note launch is tantalizingly close across the border (technically, across half a dozen or so, for me) and the phablet has started arriving at retail locations earlier this morning.

Personally, I had the opportunity to play with it at a mall nearby, and though I was impressed with the digitizer, the "Phone? Tablet?" question was a no-brainer to me: it’s way too big to be a phone. But hey, my myTouch 4G is tiny at 3.8", so the adjustment is quite obviously a bit too much for me.

How many of you are really looking forward to picking it up on Valentine’s Day?

And the winner of the Verizon-branded HTC Merge is …

Verizon HTC Merge

It’s time, folks. Time to announce the winner of a Verizon-branded HTC Merge — one of the more mythical phones of the past year or so.

We asked you to send in pictures with our beloved Lloyd (that’s the little green guy you see everywhere), and boy, did you deliver. We got more than two dozen entries, and it wasn’t easy to pick a winner, that’s for sure. We hemmed. We hawed. We gnashed our teeth. But in the end, there can be only one. And so the winner of a Verizon-branded HTC Merge is …

[App] S2 Calendar Widget – Making your calendar look better and function Better

See, I told you guys I was on a widget bender. Calendar widgets seem to be a dime a dozen, but not all of them offer the same aspects or configurations. The two calendar widgets that I always think of when asked is always the HTC Sense calendar and LauncherPRO calendar. They just look and feel good. Some of the other calendar widgets I have used, such as, ExtDateWidgetXL or Simple Calendar Widget have all been wonderful and minimal. Sometimes having to tap on them to access the Google calendar to see the rest of the month is a bit of a hindrance for me though. That is where S2 Calendar Widget2 steps in and makes things great.

  The application comes with various sized widgets for you to choose from, 4 total. There are lots of additions built into the settings of the calendar widget, which what I think truly helps this app stand out from the others. You have color options, background options, country holiday options, date format, language formats, start week day, week number display and the list keeps going forever. You really have full control over every aspect of how this calendar looks, feels and functions for you.

If you were jealous of the Sense calendar widget or couldn’t bring yourself to fall in love with LauncherPro for the wonderful widgets it can provide, this might worth your time to install and tweak to your liking.  I know it is my new favorite for now until I fond something better.

Application: S2 Calendar Widget2
Developer: Futaba
Cost: FREE

Netflix works just fine on the Motorola Photon 4G

Read Part 1 of our Motorola Photon 4G review

Netflix on the Photon 4G

When Netflix updated its Android app a couple weeks ago, the number of officially supported devices climbed to two dozen. The number of devices that the app actually works on is even bigger. And another one of those devices is the Sprint Motorola Photon 4G.

The Photon wasn’t — and as of this writing still isn’t — on the list of supported devices. But Netflix is visible in the Android Market on the Photon, downloads and installs just fine, and we were watching Toy Story 3 in no time at all.

Not sure if this is an oversight, or if we’re just lucky, but either way, it’s a good thing.

Line Birds Attempts to Follow the Flock

Immediately following any success is the attempt to recreate it and the Angry Birds phenomenon has certainly prompted more than a few attempts. Bird-themed games are quickly becoming a dime a dozen in the App Store, and the recent price drop of Line Birds (from the same developer as Line Surfer) has prompted some attention. [...]

CrackBerry’s 10 Reasons why Google will buy Research In Motion

Android Central

Should Google purchase RIM and BlackBerry? That’s the question our pals at CrackBerry are asking, offering just shy of a dozen reasons why acquiring the struggling Research in Motion might be appealing.

For our money, RIM’s excellent Enterprise support and patent portfolio might be reason enough. Tossing in RIM’s new QNX-based operating system would be icing the cake.

As for whether any of this would ever — ever! — happen is another story, though.

Which Twitter App Are You Rocking?

At the initial launch of the Android OS Twitter apps were scarce and what was available left a lot to be desired.  In fact, it would be quite some time before Twitter themselves would make a native app for their services for Android.  It wasn’t until Twidroyd came on the scene that we began to see an influx of quality Twitter apps hit the Android Market.  Now, Twitter apps are a dime a dozen.  There are tons of different applications for you that definitely get the job done.  I’d like to list a few of my favorite ones, which I’ve had the pleasure of giving a go over the years as an Android user.  Hopefully, if you’re Twitter app shopping, this might assist in helping to point you in the right direction.   Read More…

Android quick-app: Pulse Version 2.0

Pulse Version 2.0

The Pulse news reader has long been one of our favorite — and more graphically pleasing — ways to crank through news. While it might not be the best way to sort through hundreds of hundreds or RSS feeds (what, you think this job is easy), if you want a great experience reading a couple dozen, you can’t beat it.

And Pulse just got even better in Version 2.0. The UI has been divided into "pages" (or think of them as tabs if you want). There’s a bunch of preloaded content, and a couple blank pages, and you can customize things to you heart’s content.

And new for us Android users is an entire section of Android news. Not that you’ll need more than the Android Central feed, of course. Check out our hands-on and get download links after the break.
