This AndroWinMoApple guitar shreds

10

  

It’s not every day that you see someone playing a guitar made out of cell phones.  However, today a music sequence developer thought it would be a good idea to write apps for Android, Windows Mobile, and the iPhone, and then tape all the three different devices on a banjo and video tape himself playing "Cracklin Rosie." All three major cell phone platforms (BlackBerry, Nokia and Palm fans start your rant engines) synchronized in a perfect musical balance of harmony: We know it sounds outrageous, but the results are pretty darn cool.  Be sure to check it out for yourself after the break.

Keep your charge on -- how to improve battery life on your Android phone

61

Howdy!  It's me again, and this week we're gonna talk about something near and dear to all of us -- battery life.  It's always at the tip of everyone's tongue (especially as new phones are released), and all the information out there is enough to make a person lose his or her mind.  Hopefully together we can work through it all, separate the fact from the fiction, and figure out how to keep everything out of the red.

Prepare your beverages, smoke 'em if you got 'em, and follow the jump so we can figure this out together.

Why look at that, Android runs on the iPhone 3G, too

10

Not to be left out in all the fun that its little brother is having, the iPhone 3G is joining the Android party, too. David Wang has ported Android to the iPhone 3G (not the current 3GS, mind you) and well, it boots and loads Android all right. The Android iPhone 3G port is a little rougher than the original port but who really cares, these hacks are awesome! Supposedly, we'll find out how to do this ourselves in a couple of days. True freedom is here iPhone 3G owners! [pcworld]

T-Mobile myTouch Slide gets unboxed

14

 

For many reasons, be it environmental, minimalist, etc., phone boxes have become bland and basic. Thankfully, it looks like T-Mobile has eschewed those type of simple boxes for packaging that is downright cool--the myTouch Slide is housed in a nicely designed, silver briefcase. 

Obviously, what's inside the box counts more than the box itself but it's clear that if this is the retail packaging for the myTouch Slide, that T-Mobile cares very much about the device. In non-box news, the guys at the Droid Sector have unboxed the myTouch Slide and played around with it, concluding that it's very fast. We'll judge for ourselves when we review it but in the meantime hit the jump for some pictures of the myTouch Slide!

HTC Evo 4G clears the FCC

9

With the slew of disappointing Android 2.1 update news today, here's something that'll get you excited for the weekend: the HTC Evo 4G just cleared the FCC. There's not much in details, but the WiMax is all there and it's using the 2500MHz band. We're going to just pretend and hope that clearing the FCC means the Evo 4G will soon be ready to rock and roll. If you need to remind yourself on how awesome the Evo 4G is, be sure to check out our hands on. [engadget]

Verizon giving HTC Incredible owners some money back

9

First some Nexus One owners found out they were getting the tax of their device refunded to them, now HTC Droid Incredible owners are being notified they will be getting some money back as well. It appears as though Verizon has figured out a way to lower shipping costs, I guess shipping them early helped, and they have reached out to owners via email informing them that they will be issued some sort of partial refund. While exact details, such as the amount, or how it will be received are still unknown, it is still good news for those Droid Incredible owners. For those who think you may be affected by this, check your email that is on file with Verizon, and if you come across any further details, let us know in the forums. Thanks Jonathan!

First Sprint with Moment and Hero 2.1, now Verizon with Droid Eris 2.1 Information

8

Well, 2.1 rumors are just flying around these days like no other, but this time it seems like something a little more concrete then a rumor. Verizon appears to have update their site showing an update for the Droid Eris as "coming soon". For those who watched the Droid 2.1 update unfold, you will remember we saw this prior to the release as well. It appears as though the new ROM version (2.36.605.1/Radio: 2.42.00.04.12) is in line with the latest leak that many of you are probably running. Timeframe on the release is still unknown, but this looks like some more concrete evidence that the Droid Eris will indeed see Android 2.1. Check out the full document with some more information after the jump. [via Verizon]

Sprint responds to Hero and Moment 2.1 update questions...again

19

 

Sprint has left new official word about the 2.1 eclair update for the still popular (but last generation) Samsung Moment and HTC Hero handsets.  It's not likely to make anyone happy, but it's exactly what we figured it would be.

Before we gather the pitchforks and torches and storm Kansas City, we need to try to remember that 1H 2010 (carrier speak for sometime before June 30) has been their official word all along.  Yeah, that doesn't make me any happier either, but what else can you do? [via Engadget] Thanks lastdetailwd for the tip!
