HP TouchPad Runs Android 2.2.1!

touchpad-android

Developers have found a way to run Android OS on the HP TouchPad. The good part is that TouchPad is no longer just a piece of deadware but its life could be elongated with installation of Android OS.

The bad part is that it’s still running Android Froyo, which isn’t a great OS for the tablet device and we would like to see Android Honeycomb running on it.

And of course, I probably wouldn’t install Android on a HP TouchPad anyways, WebOS is actually has some really good UI (user interface) I wouldn’t trade Android for.

What do you think?

iPad 2 vs. Galaxy Tab 10.1 Smackdown!

ipad2-vs-galaxytab101

iPad 2 versus Galaxy Tab 10.1, who will win the battle of tablets?

Some things that the iPad 2 falls behind the Galaxy Tab 10.1:

1. I found that camera on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was much better, indeed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a camera sensor 3 times bigger than iPad 2, which allows clearer/better photos/videos. Go look at any other iPad 2 vs. Tab 10.1 comparisons, you will see that camera is much better.

2. The stereo speakers on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 proved to me more useful (at least for me), why in the heck did Apple put mono, single speakers on their iPad 2? I

HP TouchPad Selling at $99 Like Hotcakes!

touchpad

If you were lucky, you could have picked up an HP TouchPad, a 9.7-inch WebOS-based tablet device for just $99 at your local Wal-mart or BestBuy.

The crazy frenzy started last week when HP announced discontinued product development and support for their latest HP TouchPad only less than after 2 months of launch date.

Only days after that, HP TouchPad has started selling at only $99 at various retail stores.  Now, here comes the fun part, this $99 tablet device is probably the deal of century for a multi-touch tablet device.  In fact, if you compare HP TouchPad at $99,

Apple Sues Motorola Next!

apple-sues-motorola-xoom

Apple’s next target after Samsung? Motorola, Motorola’s latest 10.1-inch Android tablet has been deemed to have copied Apple’s iPad designs.

Come on! That is ridiculous. At least suing Samsung for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 made some kind of sense as its lighter and slimmer than iPad but suing Motorola for the Xoom tablet which does not look anywhere near an iPad???

Clearly, Apple has hired some dumb-nut lawyers to do their job of trying to take down Android via proxy companies like Samsung and Motorola. And no, there’s absolutely no clear reason

Apple Blocks Sale of Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe!

tab10.1

Personally, I think the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the best tablet on the market now. It’s thinner AND lighter than an iPad 2, can be overclocked to 1.4Ghz dual-core, and even run Ubuntu!

So, is Apple getting desperate?

I think so, they are

HTC Launches OpenSense Open Source SDK!

opensense-sdk

One of the things I like about HTC is that they are going to open source all of their HTC Android smartphones and tablets. Which is great for people who are trying to install new ROMs, unlock their phones, etc…etc…

Finally, HTC launches OpenSense SDK, which is basically a development environment for their HTC devices. The new site also hints at “Unlock Bootloader” feature, which will be coming soon and phones that have been locked as of recently like the HTC Evo 4G, will benefit greatly from users being able to root their phones again.

Galaxy Tab 8.9 Previewed!

galaxy-tab-8.9

Lucky attenders of BlogHer got to see hands-on preview of the latest Galaxy Tab 8.9, which is the evil 8.9-inch brother of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

As a user of Galaxy Tab 10.1 for about the last month or so, I would have to say it’s the best Android tablet you can get right now if all you are worried is couch-browsing on a super-sleek device that’s lighter/slimmer than iPad 2. Of course, typing on a 10.1-inch screen is rather cumbersome, I would rather have a 8.9-inch tablet device but 7-inch seems too small.

See a short preview video by folks at Tecca:

How to Turn your Android device into Remote Live View CAM for Canon DSLR with Android App “DSLR Controller”!

dslr-controller-app

I’ve been actually looking for something like this, a Live View camera that can be tethered to my Canon 7D DSLR camera so I can have better control while I take 1080P videos I upload to YouTube.

It’s an Android app called DSLR Controller that turns any Android device (including Android smartphone/tablet) into a Live View cam.

Why a need for such things?

First of all, when you are taking a video with a Canon 7D, there’s no way to tell if your
