The 'Boston' on its way to Orange

3

Well, what have we here? The device pictured above is what appears to be called The "Boston" and has it's eyes set to Orange for the carrier. What started as a rumor was followed up with some rather official looking pictures, and some basic specs about the device as well. It appears as though this device will have a 320x480 screen that will be displaying Android 1.6 (*sigh*), along with a 5MP camera, and 256MB of RAM in the device. While yes this device appears to be on the lower end of the Android spectrum, what can you really expect from a device that is said to release with the price of just 1 Euro. [via Phandroid]

Android 2.1 now on more than a quarter of Android phones

14

Here's the latest look at the breakdown of Android operating system versions -- fragmentation, if you will. More than a quarter of Android devices are now running Android 2.1 -- that includes the Droid, Nexus One, Legend and Desire. A goodly number -- 38 percent -- are still on Android 1.5, and Android 1.6 makes up nearly 32 percent of the gene pool.

By comparison, way back in December, Android 1.6 led the way at 52.2 percent, followed by Android 1.5 at 27.7 percent, and Android 2.0.1 (which had recently been released for the Droid) at 14.8 percent. [via Android Developers blog]

Android 2.1 now blamed for some of Nexus One (and now Droid) screen 'issues'

20

See that picture up there? That's the surface of Mars. And apparently it doesn't look very good on the Nexus One. And now on the Motorola Droid. And quite possibly any device running Android 2.1. Why? Let's discuss, after the break.

Archos Generation 8 -- Once again bringing Android in tablet form

3

Archos apparently is planning on rolling out its Generation 8 tablets come this summer, with six models ranging from 3- to 10-inch screens. Along with prices ranging from $100-$350 Archos is bringing the power of the internet to your hands without draining your pockets. What stands out about this tablet is that it'll have mulitouch which will be a first for Archos. Generation 8 will also be packing an ARM Cortex processor between 800MHz and 1GHz with a 3G open GL support. Said to be running Android, swapping out AppLibs for the Android Market. Hopefully there will be more talk about this tablet at Computex in June. [archoslounge via slashgear]

Google buys U.K. visual search startup Plink, could help improve Goggles

1

Plink- A U.K. based visual search app (about the same idea of Google Goggles) has been bought by Google for an undisclosed amount. PlinkArt won last December in the Android Developer Challange. PlinkArt allows you to use your camera to take pictures to identify paintings and artwork.

"The move is part of Google’s new initiative to acquire one company per month in order to improve and expand its line of services."

Why buy? Take a look back at Google Voice, which Google bought back when it was GrandCentral. Now Google's bought Gizmo5, and Google Voice reportedly is building on that platform, too. [Boy Genius Report]

Where Motorola stands on Android 2.1 updates

11

Loyal reader Tom Cochrane reminded us on Twitter that Motorola has a status board for its Android 2.1 roll-out. And above is where we stand as of today. If you're rocking the Milestone, updates are either in progress or should be coming in the few months or so. Same goes in the U.S. for the Backflip, Cliq and Cliq XT. Hang in there, folks. [Motorola] (And thanks, Tom.)

myTouch Slide coming in 3 colors

16

 

What's black and white and red all over? The new myTouch Slide, of course! Semi-official (hey, it hasn't been announced yet) pictures have come out showing the next step in the line of T-Mobile HTC Android phones in Technicolor. By offering color options and adding some form of  HTC's Sense to the phone, it looks like they're really pushing the customization of the myTouch series of phones. Hopefully they'll drop those bubbles, though ...

So who wants what color? [CellPhone Signal]
