eTrizzle: find movies from a variety of sources

eTrizzle

Unless you've used the eTrizzle service on the web before, the name won't give you any indication of what this app actually does. Confusing branding aside, the app provides a very useful service. In an age where people are looking to "cut the cord" and have multiple sources of content, it can be either confusing or time consuming to try and find where movies are available.

eTrizzle hopes to solve this problem by aggregating several different sources of digital (and physical) movie content and making it searchable right from an app.

Sony Xperia Z goes up for pre-order in Slovakia at €605.99

Sony Xperia Z

We don't have too many indications as to how much the newly announced Sony Xperia Z will cost, but one Slovakian retailer has pegged its pre-order price at €605.99. This is just a pre-order price at an online retailer MP3.sk, but we can assume that if a retailer is willing to put up a solid price that the final launch price will be close to it. The 5-inch 1080P display device has no expected release date on the site, but in the Sony booth at CES the rumblings were to expect availability in early March.

As we've seen in the past, unlocked pricing in Europe isn't a great indication of eventual pricing (if it comes here at all) for the U.S. market, but if you live in Europe this will give you an idea of what Sony is going to price the Xperia Z at. The device is a real treat to hold and use, so we can only hope that people can get their hands on one as soon as possible.

SwiftKey Flow Beta Updated To 4.0.0.61

SwiftKey’s take on the swipe keyboard, SwiftKey Flow, has been in public beta for about a month now.  An updated beta was all but guaranteed as the version it replaces, 4.0.0.54, had a limited license for use set to expire January 7, 2013.  Today’s release, 4.0.0.61, has a relatively short limited license, expiring on January 30, 2013, and comes with a host of improvements. The short beta window could be an indication SwiftKey is nearing the end of beta testing or is at least prepared to quickly launch another updated version.

The update brings performance and battery improvements and addresses a few bugs causing force closing and memory leaks. It will also allow for “flow” in landscape on tablets. Hit the source to see the full change log and download the update. I’ve been using it for weeks and have been very happy. Go get it!

Android 4.1.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Camera rolling out

Samsung looks to be issuing a software upgrade for its Samsung Galaxy Camera as folks are reporting Android 4.1.2 is showing up in parts of the United Kingdom. The upgrade doesn’t bring a ton in the way of new features, but users have noticed a new updated Gallery app. The app is said to be the same one that is featured on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and since that one is quite nice we can’t say there will be many objections to its arrival.

There’s no other indication as to what else has changed, but we assume stability improvements and performance enhancements are just a few of the key differences.

This 16 megapixel Android-powered point and shoot camera might not have been met with the greatest fanfare Samsung’s seen (I believe the latest Galaxy phones had that privilege), but the advanced touch screen features and the ability to share photos with tons of social apps is what the OEM will bank on to get the camera some shine in that point-and-shoot arena. Those interested in the upgrade should be looking for firmware BLL7, so get to it and let us know how things are working out for you in the comments section below.

Sony Xperia Z ‘Yuga’ and ZL ‘Odin’ make a press shot debut on New Year’s Day

Sony Xperia Z 'Yuga' and ZL 'Odin' make a press shot debut on New Year's Day

Are you ready to welcome in 2013? It’s sure to be another hot year for handsets, and if this pair of leaked Xperia smartphones is any indication, Sony is likely to be off to a solid start come CES. The svelte Xperia Z “Yuga” and slightly sleeker ZL “Odin” have made a premature debut on the Japanese tech giant’s site, with a pair of straight-on press shots appearing overnight. The Xperia Z shot appears to be in line with earlier leaks, while the ZL is shaping up to be a slightly more compact variant, potentially squeezing identical hardware into a smaller shell. Both devices are rumored to include 5-inch 1080p LCDs, quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processors with 2 gigs of RAM and Adreno 320 graphics, along with a 13-megapixel Exmor RS sensor on the rear — oddly, the ZL’s front-facing camera appears to be positioned on the bottom. Sony has yet to confirm either device’s specifications, but with CES just around the corner, we don’t have long to wait for either device to become official.

ZTE Grand S should be just 6.9mm thick, wield a 13MP camera

ZTE Grand S should be just 69mm inches thick, wield a 13MP camera

ZTE has been more than willing to spill the beans about the Grand S ahead of CES, and it’s not stopping with the mention that the phone exists. The Chinese phone maker has confirmed that its 5-inch smartphone measures just 6.9mm (0.27in) thick — that’s a sight slimmer than the Droid DNA and Nubia Z5. There’s also mention of a 13-megapixel camera that explains a slightly visible rear hump. While we don’t yet have confirmation of the rumored quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of RAM, ZTE has left clues that the flagship could undercut typical pricing with a ¥2,799 ($449) off-contract cost in China. We may only know the full details in Las Vegas, but there’s every indication that the Grand S hardware could justify a boast or two.

Acer V350 smartphone shows up in GLBenchmark

Hardware manufacturer Acer is likely familiar to Android fans thanks to their tablet devices. Recently a new device appeared on GLBenchmark indicating Acer is planning to get into the smartphone market. Dubbed the V350, the device is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor running at 1.5GHz and has a 720p screen, although there is no indication what the screen size will be. Other details like the amount of memory is still unknown, but the unit submitted to GLBenchmark was running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Acer submitted another model earlier this week, the V360, but the V350 appears to be the higher end unit, projected to end up somewhere in the mid to upper-tier of the market.

ASUS Nexus 7 Desktop Pogo Dock Up for Pre-Order At B&H For $39.99

n7 dockIt’s been five months since the Nexus 7 went on sale, and just about as long since eager Android fans have been waiting to get their hands on official accessories. We’ve seen the first-party Asus dock show up time and again in various overseas web stores, but never actually go on sale. The wait might soon be over, at least for US residents: B&H Photo & Video has put up an online pre-order for the Pogo Pin dock for $39.99.

n7 dock big

Don’t start stuffing those stockings yet, Nexus 7 owners. There’s no indication of when sales will actually begin, and we’ve been denied this particular dock many times before.

Alleged shots of Acer’s first Jelly Bean smartphone pop up on Chinese site

Alleged shots of Acer's first Jelly Bean smartphone pop up on Chinese site

As a brand, Acer doesn’t quite yet resonate in the mobile space. After all, it took the company the better part of a year to release the CloudMobile. But from the looks of these (very clear) leaks captured on Chinese site VR-Zone, it seems Acer may be prepping a mid-range device for that market. Allegedly dubbed the V360, the handset appears to be running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean which, if true, would be a first for the OEM. It’s not clear if the UI is skinned, but if its previous work on the CloudMobile’s UX is any indication, expect this one to be very lightly skinned. Apart from that, there are a handful of unverified specs floating about, like a 4.5-inch qHD display, unknown dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz, five-megapixel camera and DTS sound (as indicated by backplate branding). As for the possible release and pricing for this mystery device, well, that’s very much up in the air. Acer would first have to confirm its existence before we move on to those market realities.

Millenial Media: Samsung Ad Impressions Market Share Doubled In Last Year While HTC And Motorola Halved

2012-12-19_17h29_28If you needed any clearer indication that Samsung basically owns the Android world while HTC and Motorola are in trouble, maybe this will help. According to Millenial Media, a mobile advertising firm, ad impressions on its platform from Samsung handsets shot up from 23% to 46% in the last year. Meanwhile, HTC plummeted from 32% to 16%, while Moto dropped from 22% to 11%. This is a massive change.

2012-12-19_17h38_23

Now, before we go getting bent out of shape over this, let’s clarify a couple things. First off, this is coming from ad impressions. What that means is that it has no tangible relationship to units sold or profits made by a company.

RockPlayer v2 Comes Out Sporting A Brand New UI, Sharing Between Devices, Gesture Control And More

rockplayernewtinyForget all those people streaming their movies from the likes of Netflix and Hulu. You like to have a proper collection of video files. You want to own them and watch them wherever you want. RockPlayer, the all-purpose media player app for Android, has been a crowd favorite for just this purpose for a while, even if it’s been lacking a bit of luster. Well, today that changes with a huge update to the interface that makes it both prettier and far more functional.

Have a look at the before and after:

rockplayerold1 rockplayerold2 rockplayerold3

Before

As you can see, the old version is all Gingerbread-y and has a god awful, ugly interface for exploring videos with no indication of what you’re about to play besides the name.
