DONUT!!!!!

Android 1.6 SDK Now Available, Donut Possibly Hitting Phones Next Month

The Android Team released the SDK for Android 1.6 a.k.a. "Donut" which, among other things, promises CDMA compatibility, screen resolution scaling and support for gestures. Even better, Donut might be available on phones as early as next month.

All the stuff mentioned in the past, such as APIs for text-to speech and translator functionality, plus a revamped Marketplace UI that will give this release some fire power. The universal search looks especially time-worthy, since it will generate points of interest in the results if you search for something generic like pizza, or it will tell you the weather if you include "weather+[city]" in the search string. But check it out for yourself

Sprint Hero Review: Faster, Stronger, Uglier



Take the most daring Android phone yet, but make it faster, stronger and better (but blander). You have the Sprint take on the HTC Hero, which happens to be the best Android phone you can buy.

I said the original version of the Hero was "daring" and "ambitious, but tragically flawed." (Read that review first.) If it was Batman, the Sprint Hero is Superman: Nearly perfect, but goddamn boring. HTC has taken the striking, aggressive angles of Hero v1 and flattened them out into a rounded, far more generic looking phone. It's not hideous, but it's lost its power to captivate as a geek fetish object.

(1st review: http://gizmodo.com/5318860/htc-hero-...gically-flawed )



Everything else about this version of the phone is better: The software, which is exactly the same content-wise on the HTC front as the first Hero, has been seriously optimized, so it doesn't suffer show-stopping slowdowns anymore, even with a full set of HTC's widgets running. Speedwise overall, it's about the same as a G1 running the stock Android OS—bearable, but not exactly a blitzkrieg. (The iPhone 3GS is way faster, to compare.)

Interestingly, while HTC says the hardware is exactly the same—except for the CDMA chips to get it on Sprint's network, obviously—there are some differences we noticed. The screen, while the same size, actually seems to look a little bit better on the Sprint model. Not worlds better, but if you look close, the difference is there. The colors are a bit more saturated, the viewing angle a little wider. Also, it's got a bigger battery: 1500 mAh, compared to 1350 before. The bigger trackball is a plus, since it takes less thumb movement to get around, meaning less carpal tunnel problems in the future.And, while it's very possibly firmware at play, the 5MP camera shoots, on average, about twice as fast as the first Hero, and the metering in low light seems to be way better, too. Both of the shots above were taken using the same settings on each phone, with the old Hero running the original firmware it shipped with. (Still not great, but better.)

The only real new bits, software-wise, are a handful of pretty standard Sprint apps: Sprint Navigation, NFL Mobile Live, Nascar, SprintTV and Device Self-Service. Everything else, from the keyboard to the multitouch browser looks the same, just faster (and in the case of Flash in the browser, more reliable too, since we could actually watch videos this time around). Which is dandy, since HTC's Sense UI, with its multiple desktops, social networking integration, widgets for weather, Twitter, settings and other enhancements, made Android great.








The real power of this Hero is that the best Android phone you can buy—it's everything good we said about the first Hero, but with our biggest complaint, speed, fixed—is on Sprint and its solid 3G network—making it the first U.S. Android phone outside of T-Mobile—and it's $180. Plus, the required Sprint Everything now has free calling to any mobile number, not a bad perk.


The princess might not kiss this Hero because it's kinda ugly, but at least it'll actually get the job done now. If you've been waiting for an Android phone not on T-Mobile, or one that's finally just about ready for primetime, this is it.

HTC's Sense UI makes Android way more usable and adds useful features like social networking integration

Almost all of original Hero's problems are fixed

Android kinks, like no easy way to update all apps, meh store interface aren't polished over

Jumbo trackball and more logical front placement marred by cheap front plate

Hardware blobbified into something boring and dull, not daring and awesome

Still not as polished as iPhone or Palm Pre

Acer A1 Android Phone: 768MHz CPU, 5-Megapixel Camera, Wi-Fi, GPS



Rumors had suggested the Android 2.0-powered A1 might arrive in September, and low and behold, it's now up for pre-order at eXpansys (France and Germany). The listing also includes previously unknown full specs:

What's immediately noticeable is the faster-than-average processor, and the quad-band GSM/tri-band 7.2Mbps HSPA. The 3.5-inch touch-capable display has a sharp 800x480 (WVGA) resolution, but the page doesn't say if it's capacitive or resistive.

There's no release date—or U.S info—but the pre-order price is 390 Euros (about $571). We'll let you know when Acer fills us in on any U.S plans as its definitely an Android phone to keep an eye on. [eXpansys (translated) via Android Guys]

Exclamation Cyanogen | OnePlusOne thread

Android, Palm, and Windows Mobile All Getting Updates Soon

If you're rocking a G1 or myTouch 3G, a Palm Pre, or a Windows Mobile device, you're due for an OS upgrade fairly soon. Android 1.6, a.k.a. Donut, Palm's WebOS 1.2, and Windows Mobile 6.5 are all set to drop.

The biggest change is Donut, which Android and Me reports is already hitting some T-Mobile USA users. Android 1.6 offers a few new features, like a power bar widget to manage phone services and new phone software, along with performance gains and support for soon-to-come CDMA phones on Verizon and Sprint networks.

Palm's WebOS 1.2 includes support for credit card entry in the app market, synchronization with LinkedIn, and other updates noted at Palm's blog. On the Windows Mobile side, 6.5 won't likely be available to many older phones as an upgrade, but new models, sporting a revamped interface and Flash Lite support, arrive Oct. 6.

What upgrades or changes are you most looking forward to on your non-Apple smartphone? Share your wishlist in the comments.


Five Features We Want to See in Android



As with our Ubuntu wishlist, we can't actually tell everyone contributing to Google's open source Android mobile phone software what to do. All we can do is suggest five things that would make its smartphones even smarter.



A good handful of developers and handset makers have taken steps to improve Android's stock virtual keyboard. Some have suggested it's really an issue with hardware responsiveness. Either way, Lukas Mathis does a masterful job explaining exactly what's wrong with Android's keyboard, as compared to the iPhone, which has had a few years to mature and iterate:

Quote:
Typing on the iPhone ... works perfectly well, perhaps better than on a physical keyboard. Doing the same thing on an HTC Magic is often annoying and wrought with errors.
We'll leave the physical keyboard debate out of this. The virtual keyboard is the route more handset makers that aren't BlackBerry seem to be taking. What's more, for a device that's supposed to give you premiere mobile access to Google searches and information, having a device punish you for trying to type with one hand is off-putting. Handset makers need to widen the screens, and Android's developers need to learn how to better anticipate what a user is trying to type.
A web-based Market with great search

When you think about Google's origins and mission of providing good information to the masses, it's hard to square that against how the Android Market is organized. On the phone itself, everything is an App or Game, broken into a few sub-categories. On the web version, you can browse the Featured, Top Paid, and Top Free sections, or browse the hopelessly stuffed sub-categories—without any search function.


In actually using the phone, people search with a tag and functionality mindset. "I need a highly-rated free Twitter client," or "I need a screen widget that shows a calendar." As it stands, you can search descriptions from the phone, but you have to scroll lots of results on a tiny screen, with no sorting tools. You can sometimes find an app's "QR code" on the web and point your camera's phone, with a Barcode Scanner app running, to link to the right spot on the market, and—wait, no, this is ridiculous, and we're in CueCat territory.

In other words, Google needs to forge a smarter link between a great web-based Market and individual phones, and improve the search and sort abilities on Android phones themselves.


A serious hardware contender
Even the best-reviewed Android phone out right now, the HTC Hero, suffers from the same middling processor and laggy operation as its predecessors. That's not to say it isn't perhaps more functional and fun than many other web-enabled phones out there, but we haven't seen what Android can really do when it's allowed to move into the passing lane.

Not to be lazy, but writer of things Mac and design John Gruber already pointed out what Android device makers can do to make users happy, get attention, and even push Apple as a real competitor. Simply put, build a top-shelf device, don't be afraid to charge for it, and don't try to eat from the same piece of pie as the iPhone:




Quote:
Consider trade-offs that Apple is unlikely to make, like, say, device thickness. Beef your phone up with a bigger (and, yes, slightly thicker) battery than the iPhone's and then make battery life a major selling point. Something along the lines of, "The iPhone's battery life is fine for casual users, but serious users need more than just a few hours."
A syncing, Chrome-powered browser
Android's built-in browser is based off the same WebKit roots as Google Chrome (and Safari), but it doesn't move one-fifth as fast, even on a Wi-Fi connection. That might be a hardware issue, and so may improve soon. One thing it doesn't do, though, is allow you to import bookmarks from a file, or otherwise match them to another browser you've already filled with your web preferences.

The most exciting part of our interview with Mozilla Mobile VP Jay Sullivan was when he mentioned how Fennec, a Firefox-based mobile browser (that might land on Android someday), will give Firefox users the ability to sync browser history, passwords, bookmarks, or even the last set of tabs opened. Google can likely go beyond these basics, and should. The only thing better than a fast and snappy browser is one that's a simple extension of your already-snappy desktop browser.




Open up, or just be nice, to modders



Earlier this month, Google sent a cease-and-desist letter to the coder behind CyanogenMod, a totally unofficial, but pretty awesome, custom ROM. It offered features from the next build of Android, much-needed speed optimizations, a few cool secret abilities, and generally made nerdy, tech-savvy Android owners excited to have their phones. It also copied a few of Google's proprietary apps to make the phone fully functional. It seems like the issue has settled down, and Cyanogen is even getting help from Android developers in forging his next project, and that's pretty encouraging.

Know who some of the most enthusiastic, and evangelical, Xbox owners are? Those who manage their entire home entertainment lives with Xbox Media Center. Before the app store, and, to a lesser extent, after it, the iPhone cultivated a similarly dedicated group of "jailbreakers." Most of the folks who would dare to "flash" a phone, or even get that far into the process, know the risks of doing so, and take their lumps when things go wrong. At worst, they do little to no harm to the average customer who sticks with the system and updates provided by their carrier. At best, their enthusiasm and unofficial discoveries generate a good deal of publicity and bragging rights for the platform. It seems like Google's taken a soft stance on modders so far—let's hope it continues.

nice

I need to get time to go get a data plan again so I can use my ION, so damn busy to do it.

I like what I have been reading about the Donut though

Forgot to add: If anyone else buys HTC accessories for the Hero off the handhelditems.com site, use the promo code 30htcoff to get 30% off. Ended up paying right under $15 for two cases and the screen protector after using the code.

I will see what I can dig up, if all fails call T-mobile

My ION works a little different than the G1 due to the dev phone status

Samsung Bigfoot Could Be the T-Mobile G1 v2 – Runs Android 2.0 Donut



Mobile-Review.com have revealed some new information on an upcoming Android phone from Samsung, codenamed the Samsung Bigfoot.

We've seen the codename 'Bigfoot' crop up in a lot of roadmaps and leaked reports recently, and it seems highly likely that the Samsung Bigfoot will indeed be the T-Mobile G1 v2.

Here's the technical specification for the Samsung Bigfoot:




The handset is expected to launch in Q3 and will be powered by a new version of the Android platform, codenamed Donut. According to the information from Mobile-Review, the Android 2.0 Donut update will be a significant update in comparison to previous versions 1.0 and 1.5 Cupcake updates.

It appears however that not all phones running earlier versions of the platform will be automatically upgraded from the Cupcake update to Donut, instead that decision will be left to the specific operator/vendor.

Currently very little information is known about Android 2.0 Donut and the features it will include, but it is mentioned that the update will bring support for WVGA displays and will be included on the upcomng phones from Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Acer and other OHA manufacturers.

Got the cases in the mail today. Here is a comparison with my Instinct. I know the phone won't be quite this size, but it gives a decent comparison without actually having the phone in my possession yet.

I'm going to have to call tmobile when I get off, I can't seem to find the donut, I don't know if they will be able to notify someone or resend it to me.
