Ep 54: Stealing stuff with Jaymar Cabebe! Video Transcript
What CNET would like to -- from Google's unicorn phone that Google nexus four G. Motorola takes a step back and it's actually a good thing. And yet another dual screen hand that this time from -- -- -- -- that more on this week's episode of injury -- else we -- episode it before for June 23 when eleven I'm Antuan Goodwin. Just neck alpha actually -- injuries in favor of giant. Some presenting today alongside don't want back on the -- the editor. -- market -- -- the -- they are with them. And you know -- what does this but the my -- on a microphone. And -- you -- talk and of that I think I'm ready and a awesome thirty start -- today's show with in in a little bit of a different direction. Justin who's not here to defend himself and I have a little bit -- nine we talk about. I would guess this basically. I don't think it's very -- they gonna come out this summer. Just didn't -- that it would replace their gentleman's bet right now on the head in our -- like I usually win them I think you've won one and looks like he may be. Winning a second one yet we've got tweet from Motorola mobility for official Twitter account. The fifth paying type Droid banks coming inflated for summer release their team is working on the new update right that's official site I think we can go and say he did when I either one yet. I mean they could still delayed again and right it is -- -- -- but -- announced that CES in January what was the wager. Pads -- bragging -- I mean. Had the -- nuclear weaponry everything we do anything I just like to -- rates much. Yet. So but. A figure phones that -- never gonna come out. Last week we talked about the Google nexus -- not the nexus S four G which is on sprint network -- the next nexus phone. And the in the next flagship phone. For Google Android. And we talked about. It had film -- specs. You know they're talking about things like add new dual core one point 21 point five gigahertz processor. And 720 pixel -- high Def screen. It really just kind of you restart it costs nothing -- the ideas for things that could be on this phone because it's a pie in the sky. Sort of phone in the future. Cnet's Kent German. Actually. Put together his own list of things that he'd like -- that to see from the Google -- the fifth four G. And it's an interesting -- It is. The -- -- the standout on the top is ice cream sandwich I mean of course the -- with every like nexus phone release. They usually coincide with the new version of injury -- -- -- so this time around it would probably be ice cream sandwich here. Seems like -- -- -- Then there's some other things like you know more memory. An external memory slot but as the -- doesn't have an. A micro if the -- what. And LED notification that something you're actually you talked about earlier yeah I'm pretty. I'm pretty big on -- I think they're kind of crucial to the mobile phone experience I don't understand and build without yen like the original Droid had. Color coded only the notification that you had the F fifteen years which -- ecology to choose from now. -- -- -- Look at your phone and Heber light meeting in -- with an instant message that you need to look at and email and it decide based on that. Where you needed turns mean under the -- right Alex -- my phone from across the room and -- Text message board now in it in the room that I want to run over there flip -- -- -- little bit of battery and and find out that it don't have it yet and I mean you know which is. They can activity in their indicating gonna have invaded -- how little -- -- and through appeared going to be having them through. -- -- -- Amount of processing power. And then probably really big screen battery life will be at a premium. Both on the small like that it -- that battery life tremendously. To pop over we get the new in the sue the suit notes the Lincoln sooner at the Gordon and see everything that Kent German want with the from the Google nexus -- -- And other -- phone there have actually been now. And are actually coming out Sony Ericsson. Is actually just dropped to new experienced phone. The -- -- And the exterior active. These phones are our interest being in this particular -- the active the array. Seems like. You know it is pretty. Average -- -- -- on the active and interesting to need in that it has. Waterproof. Teeth a key things -- mostly aimed at inactive lifestyle even with a little -- Built on the bottom -- Hanging from -- year and that is right that it's waterproof for resistant -- water resistant Alec -- -- of -- until actually greater until you mean when you're reading your review -- and it does it yet or waterproof yet and it's important. Until you test that phone is -- and think it -- you can just went on -- and India okay here -- reining in in the Indian brain -- in. Be able. You know completely free account. But did it also has things like built in Ain T of wireless technology -- -- -- connected to things like heart rate monitors. -- -- You go -- -- in these here are invited to the phone in a little arm case except for me -- point flatten out the treadmill. But you know -- this -- -- literally couldn't jogging with headphones on and cable going to run -- -- candidate -- -- -- -- -- -- behind me -- and yet. So is this -- also shock proof. What -- the obvious that both phones are proof -- -- -- packet. And that is -- treadmill group it's probably trivial for volume that much of -- if bars to waterproof the key thing yet. Probably trade no -- -- resist the evening its original. -- Two new phones from here then. There was an interesting thing for their hand that they -- -- new tooth for your phones are really like the inexperience played an active they're going to -- two different directions and -- -- their hardware you know a lot of injury manufacturers to differentiate their own -- the craft and into and one and Sony's not differ in that respect but it is interest -- unity. -- -- going out of their way to meet there hardware. Unique yet and that competing on things like -- more megahertz. Or -- or times we got different colors yeah I'm sure they do have different colors -- theory with very -- I mean it actually analysts like. Couple weeks if we talked about one the first phone aimed at women and this phone with it would vary. And ladylike. Doesn't mean there's a black gold. -- -- Google. Earth. -- -- emailed my. Opinion that I will just take gold sell Google followed Goldman. With one of the marquee crystals. It and let it be -- And one more bit of hardware news. A couple of months ago we took a look at Kyocera echo. The dual -- -- -- B. Form factor that went from being regular kind of -- -- phone to. -- -- species for text input. In the top screen that with the regular screen and and it also found tablet elect creepy stuff. I thought it may have been the last of the dual screen phones on the market can and we liked -- much I don't know how well that phone pixels. But it looks like we've got another one dual screen LG phone leaks. With T-Mobile branding overrun in Brazil's -- LG handsets -- -- in London. No word on the specs but what we do know is that it. I felt like a regular -- global -- my text -- moment -- But instead of a full -- will actually in addition to a full QWERTY keyboard at the bottom that you were interrupted by -- smaller like. -- two inch screen -- little strange yet. You know -- yes yes and in in -- -- -- to understand correctly that second screen it's like fast app launcher supplementary Green -- -- -- uses attract and atmosphere when it goes on on their with the pictures of steam. -- soon if -- is like six. With it like small shortcut that you very quickly want to jump or email you have to go home and -- you know you just. Redundant that -- screen yeah and hopefully some of those shortcuts would be customizable. There would be no reasons were to be screened if they work. The Olympics and -- could have. But -- did they are -- that you know the rumored name might the optimists lighter optimists slider. There's a -- means a lot of rolling around. However. I don't. The other celestial Lotto that we are looking -- looking phone -- a bit interesting thing here that with two screens. Slider phone saying that the rumors -- it will be at the bottom in the spectrum and it should be a fifty -- phone though. Maybe not very powerful. Probably trying to make for a lack expects the second screen. And we'll see what going on with that one. Fairly certain I'll like it either -- a at least it slides it doesn't have that creek that weird genes that never actually that echoes or. There should really be -- that when that thing that they meet street clicks into the position. Before you start trendy. That the -- -- When we come back from this very quick break. I've got some good news for thunder will users -- been with the -- me complain about the -- phone for a couple months. And deployments of new -- news after the quick entry. And we're back. I spend a lot of time since I've got my HTC thunderbolt -- bit a lot of time bragging on the phone and complaining about things that I can't do. Think that I hate about it. Looks like there may be a little bit of good news on the horizon. Over on the Internet with walked out with -- in next recording. That a wonderful a date for gingerbread could be coming. And that it could be bringing skate video call. And no -- thunderbolt launched. There was a lot of talk about and it was actually -- the touted features pre lines that if would be one of the first Verizon phone that had that video chat on it. But then when the phone came out that functionality was. Suspiciously missing and then a couple of months after. After launch. -- -- leaked version of that -- video chat app. Leaked out to the Internet. I tried it out it's actually pretty cool but it's not official. You can use of the lesser. Won't really know -- if you -- -- -- not but it's not an official release from. From Verizon and and also that an -- still running. Radio One one a little bit annoying -- Over the update should. -- and -- users up to injury to -- freed -- for the latest version of of a gingerbread. -- Which would actually. In addition to -- -- -- -- also make -- -- compatible with Google's. Who will talk and there are -- yet. -- she didn't can be used on that front facing camera if this that the unit that turned out to be true then and then there's also supposed to be an updated version of -- -- -- He's -- bumping up to version two -- one. Instead of two Dido and -- actually played with -- -- one. It. Nicole and not a big fan of if alien skin but it is very interesting in there's an interest -- good. And -- candy and on and really it though. We don't know when it'll come. If it actually is coming to the rumor but but only half of them look fourth issue. On the Google me. -- U there's of the Motorola HX four G. Have something else to look forward to there's actually a rumored gingerbread update coming for them as well but -- -- thing about this. Is that that update is. -- to unlock the boot loader. It -- the leaked build on has -- the first thing story over on injury police. That says that a leaked. Injury two dot three dot three updates for the mobile oral H -- hit the web and when people. They're playing around with it they noticed. That the boot -- could be unlocked with a simple console commands -- no. Hacking. -- being required to. Supposedly it's easy now to. Modifies the original for it was. So weathered this. Update the ineffectual update will be coming and whether that -- boot -- Estes part of you know and development. Build. Or. You know it'll actually be unlocked when it when it actually can -- yea -- in the air but if it dies. I find this to be extremely interesting and yeah I mean its previously there were -- it Reitman now all of a sudden. The changes are yet and I mean they. They stated previously and Motorola any species. After you know that if that the hackers in hackers and -- and and the enthusiast community. You know I really loud enough and -- -- about it. Motorola -- CC both said they would be considering. Unlocked phones in the future. -- that being going forward you know the next Motorola phone will have an unlike boot -- but this. Is interest income the first time we've seen retro attractive unblock him so. -- it. If it's true then I mean perhaps even featuring -- boot loader -- liable to break two's -- being blocked at some point maybe 33. That for -- to be around the corner will also. And then HTC jumped onto the -- -- evo meaning -- -- under rules that can. I doubt my thunderbolt. If you don't hear anything maybe two years after my evil yeah you directory where this. So. The good news is there for mineral acres users perhaps maybe and -- wanting an update that we do know for a fact is coming if for a European Union Motorola Zune users. The -- -- commute three to 01 update for honeycomb coming. And it's actually rolling out now. What's interesting about this is that the update also includes SD card support so that if he card -- And -- and -- do anything now on your Motorola zoom. Will be activated. You'll be able to pop you know for example an. And we don't know windows will be rolling out to the US do but -- there -- the difference between the European variant. And the US zoom which is being the US the ending is that the -- of pure Google experience when it you know that the device that honeycomb is launched on -- -- Google's. Twist to push that three -- 01 update in the United States. Not moralist and we're not even sure if the FB part of it will be part of that yet but it would make sense because three no one has. All that extra. Functionality built into in the USB host support. The integration. Which with more hardware. That you know an SD card would make the tablet. A more robust and less isolated experience through. We're expecting to -- fury in the UEU. As to begin sometime soon if it had an already hit now. -- in the US keep those fingers crossed. And you should be -- hopefully we'll see it then yeah I mean the slot was there right it just never worked yet didn't didn't do anything from what I understand. And then it goes one of the big complaints when it -- out of -- like -- everything we can't use. And now looks like you'll be able to. So I'll have that one doesn't have news team are you're downloaded it there and download -- -- you familiar with some of that stuff India. Interestingly. If schools are right here with the as the cart out for and that car -- -- -- now two years ago. It years ago when the iPhone 3GS lines in -- to the Jakarta and what you could do was you can. And -- find that cars for those that it -- that car the car sharing service that you own a car you can basically one by the date. Or by the hour and now hardly do it mostly in major and in major metropolitan areas to which you can do with that app was you could find cars near you want a Google -- You could reserve them. You could unlock the car you could block the car you could be the more you can -- -- you might -- exactly feature you do all these things from your iPhone. Two years later. We finally have an injury -- and -- The car for Android is out of beta last month will. But the beginning of may you reported on it and that it was -- And now it out of beta and official free download in the Android market for -- that our users. Look our -- Internet of profit there now finally we get on the ones as well I'm a big fan of -- and -- bluntly I don't do it in my own car. I'd never -- -- drivers you just -- -- and shake your face -- just avoid them. Think -- this is action. And that this. In this next story we've got an interesting app that kind of came out of left field. Or is very suppress the -- -- this -- come down the pipeline. Played by Yahoo!'s -- with the analysis by Yahoo!. -- -- who just released their own you know full featured music players and as they call it it's kind of mash and out some other. So the talents of should Sam. It's got a little bit of Apple's iTunes genius built and they call it a smart shuffle feature. But but it just thinking about smart shuffle is that you don't you don't have to give thumbs up there any kind of info like that it just kind of takes a look at what you've been listening to what you have -- you -- gives you shuffle based on that. And then there's also. The Yahoo! Music news being built and you click on the artists or whatever and then it'll bring up -- related news and asked to do that. Pretty cool stuff to be honest I mean I haven't tagged in a full look yet but. So far just right after that is a really interesting -- I think. Yes I ended -- the other -- that we played music. It doesn't mean it that my vision -- -- trouble yet. I'm very interested in its march helpful. Just because. If the -- when I listen to my music I tend to listen to the same. Three or four album. Over and over again into a -- and listen to a lot of if you know 1234 artists who were using pretty similar that's usually the musical mood that I'm in. And I'm wondering. If you're gonna see that hey -- on you listen to a lot of I -- -- -- growth -- -- a lot of the black keys you have to allow the black keys -- gonna play a bunch of black east region or will it. Gonna play the sound black keys you yeah I'm gonna continue that sorry yeah or -- look at him on music. Library and -- for example you've been listening to a lot of common yet and -- you've been ignoring your talent quality -- -- I'm gonna mix and talent quality in there with it because it's of the same type of music and they can collaborate -- times yeah they do. -- in interested in and how that works -- I think. Amigo prior and a little bit -- -- -- to me music players on iPhone right now. Between double twist the standard one and that Google music data button. -- Now this and Amazon -- whenever I plug my iPhone up to a Bluetooth. Speaker Ehrlich the car. I never know which -- in the start playing sometimes Google isn't just pops up in a podcast they're playing like yeah I think I think what we need is is an apt. That hasn't of the kind of sharp smart shuffle that shuffles the players yeah we can add another cruise is one another level there right. You don't have this if they one -- the only thing that I mean from iTunes if more complete list. Yet where you'd be able to do something like. Play for me. For start fallen that I haven't heard in the last two months yet. I never had to -- think about what music Ellison to back and I -- just built like a couple smart playlist that would automatically repeat Monday's inform me now whenever -- jumped in the colleges hit that -- -- I knew that it would be something I really liked. That I haven't heard in awhile. And was -- Yet I -- and then there was another one that idea that was the that I haven't read yet. If every defendant is coming goes through and -- went to songs -- it down and played it in vendor rated playlist and we just do that I've. Yet the -- anybody. Replicate that on the inter platform I don't know if it because media -- patent on it or something but. That the feature that I want that will be the feature that -- be locked into a music player developers and listening in the steal it yeah I think of it but yeah -- I mean I would do. Things that I haven't listened to you just just because. Lot of times on download millions and when the mountains and exaggerated horse well -- well and hundreds of thousands. Amazon MP3 has needed some easy immediate impulse buy albums and while I'm waiting for them to download I'll listen to something else in -- -- get distracted by YouTube. And then next thing you know an album's been sitting on my phone for a month and I forgot I downloaded content. Want something to reduce things the top -- and maybe that will be Yahoo!'s play. But what I really want is more clueless yet but -- will both have to play with the shuffle feature but I think we're both kind of thinking that it's probably not the Smartphones. Now and they can impact of it caring enactment. -- -- In other -- and -- -- -- it to be shifting gears and going to have some browser news. A Mozilla Firefox five and dolphins six beta to hit the market within. Hours of each other -- -- two. Alternative browsers. Firefox has been out for awhile. Dolphins also been out for -- while -- all Belfort tabbed interfaces. What's interesting about fire fox five is this new rapid relief -- Yeah yeah I'm. -- they they kind of adopted this this every six week. Kind of release schedule. And after that Firefox that -- Mozilla I guess they just kind -- said -- -- -- -- not be left in -- So intrigued -- is -- -- six weeks a Firefox. And I didn't know I I think so now. I knew I guess we'll still see if that's gonna be on both Android and windows and you can -- -- but I'm assuming it's gonna be -- every. Right -- I was I was very surprised that bought it -- if this was. Desktop story but then I saw that the injury app can also updated and there's. There's a -- interesting features in Firefox are really like their Mozilla seek. I think that's what it's called -- -- -- Firefox think but I really like being able to. Have a bunch of tabs open on my desktop. And then walk away from it. In the -- go away don't want to finish reading that article and be able to just pull lift the tabs that are on my desktop from iPhone Newton without having to proactively. Fend them yes. Having that fifth -- bookmark my. History these -- things. Again I think should be. Baked into Chrome and injury and oh yeah I think they should be baked in every. Browser in existence filling your windows and windows windows X. Wednesday in an explorer IE seven I. If you developers listening that is your goal to make my browsing experience seamless easy matter what device and access. -- -- in Chrome the -- cool. And and phone to Chrome -- cool. But -- other -- that if the running your own to plug in -- in on the other side -- literate -- I've liked my bars already stuffed with. With icon. For expansions than running it should be built and shouldn't even have to do anything which mean they're already -- -- Built in that -- -- into and it's been Chrome browser bookmarks between Chrome browsers on the desktop. That same level of -- With -- that he has written an oddity a stick -- we -- global automation. Listed. Happened between the desktop and the Smartphone especially now that tablet. -- -- takeover -- you know people. Meteor you know getting up from their desk in on the -- and continuing their browsing experience with a tablet -- -- I don't like it should be. Easy -- wrong Rawlins is kind of shuffling between devices that -- film. Again. That is another the feature that I would like to move to speed up steal from Mozilla because he's socially he's using road. -- the -- -- -- abuse at the one more bit -- -- news. And a pole tackle -- as a service. If an app -- -- -- it's an entity in making a pretty lofty promise here free TV. Three movies on your injury -- Yeah I -- it's it where it does what it says it's gonna do in the the choices -- if there is limited. Let you go split the top of the list -- -- -- -- should be at the top the list is definitely things that never and it wasn't until them. Ghostbusters. Joseph dirt both -- -- dollars. -- -- -- that. Questionable questionable ratings on this app. But there but they are good movies. But there was -- -- -- Hewlett. It was okay -- I wouldn't -- stars I thought for free in college is -- the these -- screening iPhone for free you know it's like man I'm glad that Ausprey. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But -- so it basically. With a new hacking. Nothing -- -- on -- if you just search for. Earlier today I watched a little bit. Was -- universal soldier the return which is a sequel to. You in my opinion -- -- and -- Oscar winning performance in. Universal event -- -- dvd sequel that was not a straight to dvd and I know that because I watched in theaters. Do not -- You say they and is -- and NB CD dvd I have not -- it. That is what it's automatic that the -- -- Hugo. Watch it yeah I heard he gets really emotional and its -- that'll let it be good movie don't know all his movies -- we in the middle you -- in. There's always some -- on -- -- and it starts. Doing the -- for no reason isn't. -- -- that horrible horrible. That's it for the news. A couple of new device reviews up on the site this week at the new thing that we're doing how any a couple of device reviews. The first one is gonna be -- Samsung exhibit four -- This review is actually up. Over on cnet.com -- just a dual core reviews he says that it's less ambitious -- the mega phones like the eight species and station. Four G. But I think that as they -- 100 dollar for -- -- -- should be and sees it though -- that inexpensive smart and from Samsung pop over to the link in the show notes if you would just get out of it. The other review they're gonna highlight this week at the Samsung Galaxy Tab in -- -- it here you can buy it. Eric Franklin took a look at a -- the best honeycomb tablet that -- words yeah. So the area that we've been getting a lot of questions. Over -- theft in -- -- should get. Previously had been the Motorola zoom that we -- pointing everyone to but now looks like there's a new king on the block them pop over to cnet.com. -- get the link in the show notes. He would mr. Franklin -- thing about that phone. Now it's time to answer a couple of your emails. Yellow -- the first one. -- -- -- -- You know -- she says. I change keyboards on my evo the way and on changes Rome's. -- several keyboards and other apps in phone memory that I'd like to archive my PC. In case -- wanna use them again is there any way to do this by the way my phone is not rooted. -- -- through. Because they're not -- Normally I would they -- -- backup. But because Hillary can't use that but then I remembered that -- true the file manager will put a link in the show notes. For the market link -- the hidden feature. Called application manager and baca. So you download through its free when you're in the file manager you hit the menu button and go to tools. Ending -- like application manager and -- and a from the pop up acute. The -- show you a lift of all of the apps that are on your phone. You can check the one -- -- and archive at the back button and -- after will do. If you'll actually save the EPK files for those -- -- as the carton of older. When you -- -- your -- your computer you moved to the in the you can uninstall those apps and free -- the space and what if I want an archive app back and if you want an archive -- back. Pull the a PK back volunteer -- card find it -- and launch it in the reinstall just like any third party. Now the weird thing about this is. Titanium -- back -- app in your settings. This only back up the app itself so if you for example that have Angry Birds. Delete and reinstall it you start over you won't save any of your progress. And also -- certain copy protected -- -- asked for won't back up and I haven't seen it. I can't be picked -- -- -- in my eyelids and a long time. But I've seen both forward after its its gone I can't do it sorry but for them. Majority of apps if you've got the -- -- with key. You should be -- -- a back -- -- -- -- -- -- -- mean really there aren't that many things were keyboard begin it and it's been out for anybody who wants to back up your afternoon to a new phone. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you -- weren't. Very helpful trail. -- -- Let's see here. She keyed up. She's got a quick question. I have heard rumors that the Droid charged by Samsung will. And will not get the gingerbread update this is frustrating can you please set the record straight for me. I just traded in my HTC thunderbolt for this phone only just to discover the terrible news. Also. If it is true that there's no updates are there any workarounds to getting it -- Preferably without -- And -- ruin things -- that active. Out of preventable globally -- I guess they were to -- for critical. I haven't heard anything about the -- its integrity on the charts. To get around Verizon's support forums and the only rumor that I saw -- is that. The reason that there's no charge update now with that success and -- waiting for it and failed to come out to -- -- to that phone. I don't think -- -- I think stamps -- taking their sweet time but -- injury update and when they get around through the get around to it but I'll be very high priorities or if it is maybe there's some sort of been. It just takes a while for deliberately about that. I guess the illustrate you know how long it takes these things happen sometimes my earlier and show -- imponderable might. Be getting into your -- the next month. They came out for months ago. Photos and it's -- came out after the dependable it -- -- -- -- -- Issues updating it to. You know -- were the Oki network character. If Samsung. Does decide that you're not gonna get a gingerbread update your -- stuck. There's not much you can do about getting yourself. If you want deliberate on your phone you're gonna have to wait for someone to build -- -- gingerbread -- and to do so you'll have to be routed to install it though. -- -- you're and stuck where you -- it until either the hacking community catches or. And so on YouTube which you'll. And then now one more. A -- bit. Last week a reader often. Wrote in with them issues injury to that with overheating. He asked us for solutions that talks about a couple of options that none of them worked -- we asked you guys tooth to invest in your. Possible solutions for -- -- -- overheating. We got a couple of here the best. -- -- Some time of the rom. Will run better on the same hardware than others for example the -- hadn't original Droid. It ran hotter with the around he was using but then he moved with different -- boneless -- in the performance. Enhanced and it -- cooler. And then. Sometimes if not all harbors created equally even within the same model numbers says. If -- networking if you try different rom. Maybe that will work better. -- -- right and he says trapped under clocking it uninstalls to CPU. Turn the clock speed down and see if that falls the issue you can also move. Track cleaning your battery terminals with a painful -- there. If the if that also helps. Justine says he thinks off this column is the battery itself. To see if it is the battery borrowed by -- or steal another battery and -- could overheat in your phone if it goes. Then the -- with your phone in the process there but if it doesn't in the problem is actually with the battery it -- having gone bad. He fifth also that you can try plugging the phone up with the battery in and charging it would -- turned off. That would CPU won't be an issue -- you'll be able to see if the battery. Or the charging. Circuitry -- overheating and not the processors. There's a couple solutions. For Austin. We've asked -- to give us a call back and the if any of that helped him. So will we'll come back to that next week. Where we will be. Same place in time streaming at cnet.com -- slide Thursday at 2 o'clock PM Pacific. You can pop over to the Android atlas blog we just redesign the -- -- -- site it looks exceptional. Here's a ton of cool injury tips tricks news how to this cnet.com slash injury -- atlas.

Later, Justin Eckhouse and Antuan Goodwin ponder the merits of 3D technology for portables and debate the usefulness the Motorola Atrix 4G's wacky laptop dock in this week's edition of Android Atlas Weekly.
We get questionably definitive proof that someone at Google listens to the show with Google's roll out of its an app compatibility function for the Android Market, just weeks after we complained about system requirements for Android apps. You can thank us later. Also, we take a look at a free entry-level Android phone, get video proof that the Droid 3 is coming from Motorola, and speculate on what may end up being the unicorn of smartphones, the Nexus 4G---not to be confused with the Nexus S 4G--a phone with specs that you wouldn't believe. But which of these will be our next phone? All of that, plus the answers to your emails on this week's episode of Android Atlas Weekly with Antuan Goodwin and Justin Eckhouse. Note: During his answer to the last listener email, Antuan incorrectly stated that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 didn't have aGPS. It does, and so does the LG Flyer. Oops!
The Internet is abuzz with rumors that BlackBerry's Playbook may run Android apps; hints that Nokia may adopt Android OS; and speculation that the T-Mobile Sidekick may resurface as a Samsung Android phone. Also, Justin Eckhouse and Antuan Goodwin go hands-on with Android 3.0 Honeycomb in this week's edition of Android Atlas Weekly.
Nielsen thinks that Android phones are finally more desirable than iPhones, but Antuan could have told you that based on less than scientific observations. Justin shows us a phone that he does not desire, the HTC Droid Incredible 2. The unlikely Barnes & Noble Nook Color is rapidly becoming the most desirable Android tablet thanks to a new firmware update. Meanwhile, Motorola plans to give hardcore users what they truly desire, quad-core processors and more hacker friendly Android phones. All of that plus more news and the answers to your emailed questions on this week's episode of Android Atlas Weekly with Justin Eckhouse and Antuan Goodwin.
