A lot of things have happened in the Android world since the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 received its ticket to the Ice Cream Sandwich show in July, such as the release of a couple of Jelly Bean iterations. If you wonder if the Tab 7.7 will make it to Android 4.1, here’s some official information that should help ease your worried mind.
Last September, Samsung released a not-so-comprehensive list of devices that will get upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a list that didn’t include the Galaxy Tab 7.7. In a reversal...

Imagine a world where Samsung and LG made nearly identical devices. Weird, right? Think of your Android world without manufacturer skins on the device. What would life be like without HTC Sense? What if carriers didn’t add bloatware? If everything was pure Android, would you still be interested?
Let’s ponder a world where all Android devices were the same OS; no skins, no bloatware, no fun?
Bad angel

If Android loses its customization, where is the character? What distinguishes one phone from the next? When we say “pure Android”, it’s like saying “vanilla ice cream”. We need toppings! We need something that differentiates from one device from...

We’ve published an array of rumors regarding Samsung’s expected 2013 smartphone and tablet line-ups lately, including a couple of pretty outlandish ones, but things seem to be clearing up by the day. At least as far as slates are concerned, because we’re pretty sure we know what Sammy is prepping there.
Besides the already leaked Galaxy Note 8.0 and the...

Android’s permission system is unique in the world of mobile operating systems. Instead of trusting the result of a review process, the user of an app decides on the basis of trust if s/he will run an app or not. The list of permissions which an app requests is part of this decision making. Hence, the permission system of Android plays an essential role in the whole app ecosystem.
While for the most part, this system is great, there is a little design flaw. To be fair, it emerged over time, because of the fast development of mobile operating systems and the mobile market. The flaw concerns Android’s “external storage” (how it’s called by Google’s developer guides) or rather SD card...

Well, looky what we have here, a new kid on the block ready to take the tech world by storm with a Full HD panel. This one is supposedly called Vega No. 6, is also known as the IM-A860, and comes from Pantech, a name that didn’t say much to smartphone lovers until a while back, but that’s showing tremendous progress lately.
The Vega No. 6 is rumored to be shown off by the Korean mobile phone maker on January 28 (a week from now, that is), and is actually a much better kept secret than most of the previous...

Asus has been sending a lot of memos in the past year, some of which you may find intriguing. If you’re particularly interested in hearing and seeing more of the Asus ME301T MemoPad 10, here’s a video of the 10.1-inch tablet being manhandled.
The unboxing video of the Asus MemoPad 10 was shared by the good folks at Mobilarena. Seeing that the tablet was notably missing from CES 2013, the video should more than make up for its absence.
The star of today’s attraction is a white MemoPad 10 and its pretty shiny plastic back. At 10.5mm, it’s not the thinnest tablet in town, but then...

The last time we’ve told you about Wild Blood, Gameloft’s hack-and-slasher based on the Unreal engine, the game was being discounted to 0.99$, just in time for Christmas. The game is back at the usual $6.99 price tag now, but Gameloft has a new present to pique your interest – a nice update to the game.
The latest version of Wild Blood notably brings a new game mode, a new map, and some novel pieces of weaponry. To top it up, Gameloft also improved camera controls by adding custom settings and fixed some of the bugs that plagued the first release.
The new game mode in Wild Blood is called Juggernaut and is...

While HTC’s next flagship phone, supposedly codenamed M7, has been making the rumor rounds for quite some time, today is by far the most ridiculously filled-up day with “leaks” and speculations. First, we saw a pretty ludicrous render that hinted at HTC basically reusing Windows Phone 8X’s chassis for this new top-tier Android.
The info got debunked just hours later, when a couple of leaked photos that looked a little more legit placed the M7 closer to the DNA from a design standpoint. And for the trifecta to be completed,...

The next few months will see some big name manufacturers launching their flagship smartphones. But if battery life is what’s at the top of your wish list, you can skip through the waiting part and get the undisputed champ in that department, the readily available Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD.
We told you last week that the Droid Razr Maxx HD was selling for $150 with a contract. Now, Amazon Wireless is going to tempt you harder by dropping the on-contract price of the phone even...

Two Korean news agencies, Yonhap and Aju News, are reporting that LG’s next new flagship will be called the Optimus G Pro. Said device will have a 5.5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080) screen and it could hit the market as early as this quarter. Earlier this month we heard some rumors the G Pro, and these reports pretty much confirm them.
Without even knowing anything about this phone, we’re going to say the market will not give it any...
