First CyanogenMod nightly builds available for Galaxy S II

7

Good news for Galaxy S II owners looking for a bit of custom firmware action. Samsung's excellent flagship device has taken its first step towards being fully supported by CyanogenMod, with early Galaxy S II nightly builds of the popular custom ROM now rolling out. The nightlies are based on the CyanogenMod 7.1 branch, which in turn is based on Android 2.3.4.

As ever, these builds are considered highly unstable and are likely to contain bugs and missing or broken functionality. Still, if you're rocking a shiny new Galaxy S II and fancy a change from TouchWiz, then you can grab the latest nightly for your device through ROM Manager, or the source link below.

Lenovo 7-inch IdeaPad caught on camera

1

Lenovo has been hard at work on its Android offers, as we most recently saw with the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad but a new 7-inch tablet has just been spotted. Confirmed details for the 7-inch IdeaPad are rather slim still but rumors are suggesting this one will be powered by a TI OMAP3621 processor, a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and various other goodies like 3G connectivity, SDCard slot, front and rear-facing cameras all rounded out with a 3700mAh battery. Not great but not bad either, you can find one more pic after the break.

LG Optimus 3D now available from Three UK

0

Following the phone's SIM-free launch a couple of weeks ago, the LG Optimus 3D is now available directly from British network Three. The phone is yours for free on any of Three's 24-month contracts, which range from £35 to £40 per month, or on Pay As You Go for £449.99. Not a bad price considering the tech that's packed inside this thing -- a 1GHz dual-core OMAP4 CPU, a 4.3-inch 3D display and dual 5-megapixel cameras for recording your own 3D content. Unfortunately it's running Froyo out of the box, but a Gingerbread update is expected in the next couple of months.

We've been getting to grips with the European Optimus 3D over the past week, and we'll have a full review written up for you you guys very soon. In the meantime, be sure to check out our write-up of an earlier prototype unit from Google IO.

Mobile World Congress to stay in Barcelona through 2018

0

Allow us just a little bit of inside baseball here: Mobile World Congress -- Europe's premier mobile event -- has announced that it's staying in Barcelona, Spain, through 2018. We've attended the past three years, and Android definitely had a huge presence in 2011, taking up a good part of an entire hall with a huge exhibit featuring just about every Android phone in the world, and a host of developers.

Mobile World Congress 2012 is scheduled for Feb. 27-March 1.

Android kids app: Winnie the Pooh - What's a Bear to Do

10


Youtube link for mobile viewing

Let's face it: If you want to properly review a kids' app, you've got to get a kid to do it. So we armed Daughter No. 1 with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the "Winnie the Pooh - What's a Bear to Do?" game. It's a simple premise: Pooh loves honey, and it's your job to help him find it by way of a few hidden honey pots. There are a smattering of puzzles to do, too, and they proved no match for a genius soon-to-be kindergartener.

The honey pots, on the other hand, took a little more doing, and there were a few tears shed (by the kid!) when they weren't all found on the first go. But as you can see in the video above, finishing the game doesn't end the fun, and it remains a nice babysitter entertaining. In only adult games could hold our attention like that.

"Winnie the Pooh - What's a Bear to Do?" runs $2.99 in the Android Market. Download links are after the break.
