Visual Voicemail Also Available on Android Market

15

 

We’ve already reported on the much hyped Android application, Sherpa, being available on Android Market. Little did we know that another highly anticipated application, Visual Voicemail, was making its debut the same time. Both Sherpa and Visual Voicemail are a part of the T-Mobile AppPack that we reported on a while back.

The T-Mobile AppPack is a collection of Android applications that T-Mobile officially endorses, most of the applications are T-Mobile applications themselves but others are definitely ‘must haves’ on the Android platform. Go check out T-Mobile’s AppPack, along with Sherpa and Visual Voicemail, now!

Motorola Morrison Hits FCC, Has T-Mobile 3G and UMA

6

We love the FCC—they always inadvertently leak information about upcoming tech products and we always reap the benefits. The Motorola Morrison, Motorola’s first Android Phone, just passed through the FCC with specs detailing T-Mobile 3G bands and UMA support. And judging by the fact that T-Mobile runs their own 3G band in the States and is the only carrier to offer UMA support, hmm, we think that the Morrison will be available on T-Mobile.

Hopefully with the Motorola Morrison hitting the FCC now, it means that it’ll release sooner than later. Not that we’re especially excited for the Morrison, but it may mean that the Motorola Ironman or Calgary is coming soon too!

Sherpa is Now Available on Android Market

8

 

Sherpa is the main application that T-Mobile has been pushing with their release of the myTouch 3G. Marketing it as a smart application for smartphones, it was booked as a standout feature for the myTouch 3G. But don’t worry, if you were expecting it to be a myTouch exclusive, you were thankfully wrong—it’s now available to all Android users via Android Market.

So users of the T-Mobile G1 will also be able to take advantage of this unique app. Sherpa ‘learns’ from users’ actions and remembers what and where you’ve visited in order to display similar options in the future. With the personality it develops from your usage, it can use location awareness to display options that are tailored to your liking. As T-Mobile puts it, the application learns your likes and dislikes through behavior and user feedback, prioritizing recommended retailers, restaurants and attractions.

Go grab Sherpa on Android Market now!

Philips V808 Android Phone is a Let Down, Runs China Mobile Version of Android

4

We had just reported on the Philips V808 Android Phone and were pretty excited to see what Philips would do with their first Android device. We now know that it carries nothing but disappointment because the Philips V808 runs China Mobile’s proprietary Android build, Ophone OS. The Ophone OS on the Philips V808 won’t have access to Android Market, instead applications will be downloaded via a carrier store (read: suck).

The Philips V808 also fails in that it’s a device without 3G, without WiFi, and without multitouch support. Basically China Mobile customers who invest in the Philips V808 will get a device that’s relevant 5 years ago. But no worries, Android is available on sweet devices like the HTC Hero and Samsung Galaxy, so there’s little loss here.

Official Android Facebook App Coming This Week?

16

An official Facebook Android application has been peculiarly missing from Android Market and some have pointed towards Google and Facebook's contentious history as being the reason why. Well, it looks like that's all about to change. Reports are pointing towards an official Facebook Android application to launch possibly as soon as the end of this week. 

What's in store for the official Facebook application? Well, it's going to launch with a limited feature set (when compared to the iPhone Facebook app) that'll focus on having the full Facebook stream. The Android Facebook app is built around the stream and status updates, which should tie in neatly with Android's beautiful notification system. 

So Facebook and Android sitting in a tree. Hopefully, it'll be a worthwhile application! What current app do you use for Facebook on your Android Phone?

The Creative Zii Egg Plaszma is Basically A Better iPod Touch Running Android

15

We know that the iPod Touch has become wildly popular in part because it's seen as an iPhone without the phone. An iPod Touch gives you most of the functionality of an iPhone without being bogged down by an expensive data contract. Is there a similar device on Android? There is now.

Meet the Creative Zii Egg Plaszma (yeah, that's a mouthful). This iPod touch competitor has some pretty amazing specs: 3.5" 320 x 480 10-point multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, rear HD Video camera, front facing live chat VGA camera, 32 GB storage with SDHC card expansion, Flash Lite support, GPS, Wi-Fi and the ability to output 1080p video. And the knockout punch? It runs Android.

Investing in a Creative Zii Egg Plaszma will reportedly only run you about $199, a pretty good deal considering the oozing tech that you get. What's even more important is that you;re going to be using a desktop class OS to power it all, not some janky proprietary hogwash. Meet our future.

HTC Hero Available in Pink & Brown, T-Mobile UK G2 Touch Now Available

2

  

If you want more pizzazz than the graphite color option for you HTC Hero, you can head over to Carphone Warehouse to choose either pink or brown. The pink definitely adds a nice soft touch to an otherwise sharp phone. We personally prefer graphite over brown but that's just a matter of opinion. Which color of the HTC Hero is your favorite?

And as reported yesterday, T-Mobile UK has begun offergin the G2 Touch aka the HTC Hero on their website.

As excited we are for our friends across the pond to get their hands on the HTC Hero, the bigger question for us is, when are we going to get it? Can we at least get an HTC Hero announcement?

Philips V808 Android Phone Pictures

We weren't aware that Philips had been meddling with Android but with Android's growth and popularity, it should come as no surprise. So reports have been surfacing that points the Philips V808, the phone pictured above, as Philips' first android device and it looks, okay.

The Philips V808 is rumored to have a 3.2 inch HVGA display and 3.2 megapixel camera and video. We’re not sure if Philips cooked something on top of Android like HTC and Sony Ericsson have done. What do you guys think about Philips’ reportedly first Android Phone?
