AT&T Motorola Flipside, Bravo dummy units showing up at Costco

5

Looks like Motorola's latest are getting ready to launch on AT&T. The Costco dummy units you see above are of the Motorola Flipside (bottom) and Motorola Bravo, a couple of mid-level phones announced at at CTIA. We're assuming AT&T will continue its MO of locking these guys down to the Android Market, but remember, that's what the Android Sideload Wonder Machine is for. Thanks, Mac!

HTC Legend prepping for dessert -- gets ready for Froyo

4

Us Android users will never turn down a free dessert.  We've had cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, and now, as most of us are waiting for some warm Gingerbread, HTC Legend users can add a nice helping of Froyo to their menu.

HTC announced via its Facebook page that users with an unbranded HTC Legend can expect the update in the coming weeks.  However, due to the prolonged software approval process each carrier must administer, folks with a carrier branded phone will have to wait just a bit longer (per usual).

Nothing leaves us geeks more restless than the announcement of an imminent software update.  Evidenced by user Arnoldthepotter's thread in our forums almost two months ago, where he began the countdown to the HTC Legend Froyo update.  Well, Arnoldthepotter, if you're reading, your countdown just got a lot shorter.  [HTC Facebook]

Android Accessory Review: HTC A/V Cable for Droid Incredible [video]

30

 

The HTC AV Cable for Droid Incredible is a quick and easy way to display content from your phone onto a TV. The cable plugs into the DInc's microUSB slot on one end and has composite video plugs on the other (sorry, no HD here). The cable offers true mirroring, so anything displayed on your phone shows up on the TV. The plug itself is pretty small, and I had no issues with using it even though I have a case on my phone, but your mileage may vary. Join me past the break as I take a closer look, and be sure to check out the video demonstration and extra pictures!

PBA Bowling 2 brings 3D bowling to your Android device

3

Often times after finding a few minutes to spare in a busy day we grab for our Android device and look for something fun to do. Games are always a great way to pass the time, and games that can be picked up and put away at any time are even better. PBA Bowling was a great game and the update to PBA Bowling 2 has made it even better, bringing a much better experience to the Android device. Right off the bat it's a bit obvious that getting strikes could be deemed a little bit easy, but hey who doesn't like a game that they can do well in, right? The 3D graphics are done very well, with lots of great details throughout the whole game, though the motion is a little slow and not quite as fluid as we'd like. Whether you prefer to play alone, or verse a friend the $2.99 spent on this game is worth every penny.

Download links are after the break.

Google now approving developers for free Google TV devices

5

As we mentioned a little while back, Google has had plans to give developers free Google TV devices for a while now. Keeping good on their word, developers are now reporting that the emails have been sent out for which they have up until 11:59 pm PST Nov. 11 to respond to. After that date, the devices will be shipping out provided you were able to confirm a U.S. shipping address. Really makes me wish I had signed up to be a Google Code developer now. Any of you all out there expecting one to arrive soon? [via MobitureBlog]

Droid X about to get another update, to Android 2.2.1?

27

Preface this with the usual disclaimer: Everything you see above can be faked in about 45 seconds. But with that out of the way, it looks like the Motorola Droid X may be getting an update to Android 2.2.1 sometime in the near future. In all likelihood we're looking at bugfixes -- and the probable addition of Verizon's fledgling VCAST app store. As for when? Your guess is as good as ours. [My Droid World via Android Central Forums]

Update: We're hearing the the update should start rolling out on or about Nov. 23-29.
