Leaked: Android 2.2.1 for the Motorola Droid (FRG83), and rooted, no less

7

For all of you who are still holding strong to your Motorola Droid the folks at MyDroidWorld have been kind enough to leak an update for you. This update, which is build FRG83, brings things up to Android 2.2.1 -- just like on the Nexus One. This update has already been rooted for your pleasure and you can chose between an odexed or deodexed version of the update. While sadly an exact changelog has not been released, it seems as though the users have good reports and no major issues. So, if you got a Droid, download the leaked update for yourself!

Welcome the HaiPad ... wait, what?

16

Have no fear, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is an iPad looking, Android running tablet that is actually available for purchase. The device runs Android 2.1 with a 1080p HDMI output, a built in camera, and is available with a 7 inch display. Check the video out after the jump for a rather funny unboxing of the unit and some more information. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Best Buy tips the 'Nexus S' on T-Mobile? Maybe, or maybe not

20

Hmmmmmmm. So Best Buy apparently had up some sort of preorder slot for the Nexus S, a "Pure Google" phone "Only available at Best Buy this holiday season." And the image placeholder points to T-Mobile, eh? So maybe Best Buy knows something the rest of us have been speculating about and will have an exclusive period.

Or -- and you'll have to forgive our cynicism here -- maybe it's just some SEO trickery at work. Wouldn't be the first time we've seen an online store list an unreleased (and occasionally unannounced) phone just to get a leg up on everybody else. Regardless, the link's down now. Oh, and about that "Nexus S" name -- we're hearing otherwise. [Best Buy via Phandroid]

Droid Incredible maintenance update starting to trickle in

9

Looks like the Droid Incredible update -- the one that along with a host of bugfixes puts Verizon's VCAST app store thingy on your phone (hurray?) -- is finally pushing out. Loyal reader Kenneth sends word (and the above screen shot). So if you're going to the stock route, go grab it. And if anyone wants to snag us the manual download location (here's how), that'd be great, too! More in the Droid Incredible forums

Fuze Meeting for Android Tablets -- the virtual conference room

0

Fuze Box has announced its Fuze Meeting software, designed for tablets, that brings virtual conferencing to Android.  Fuze Meeting already exists for Android phones, as well as Apple and BlackBerry devices and the desktop, but the latest version has been optimized for use on the Galaxy Tab's 1024x600 screen. 

Fuze Meeting is not just a chat application.  It's an invitation-only virtual meeting, that allows users of the software to participate real time -- including sharing content from the Tablet itself.  Desktop hosts can also share their workspace with attendees, and support for hosting and desktop sharing from Tablet devices is said to be coming next year.  To top it all off, VOIP software is included on the Android application so CDMA phones can share data and voice with attendees.  Fuze Meeting is a free application, but hosting meetings requires a subscription.  You can read about pricing information here.

It's refreshing to see Tab specific content and applications geared to the business user so quickly, and if Fuze Meeting performs as well as expected, it's something to check out.  You can download Fuze Meeting for Android (including the tablet version) from Fuze (redirects to the Android Market based on your device), and we have the full press release after the break.

Verizon Galaxy Tab available today; AT&T's version coming Nov. 21 for $649?

8

The second of the U.S. versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch Android tablet is now available. Verizon's variant goes for $599 -- that's sans contract or rebate. A data plan will run you $20 a month for 1 of the ol' gee-bees.

Meanwhile, Engadget got a leaked screen shot that shows AT&T's version coming Nov. 21 for $649, with data plans at $14.99 for 250MB and $25 a month for 2GB of data. Will that be at all competitive with the iPad? Eh, we'll see.

T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy Tab already is available, and Sprint's will be here Nov. 14 for $399 on contract.

Install Froyo on your iPhone 2G or 3G without a computer, using Bootlace

30

Does iOS fragmentation have your iPhone 3G sluggish and buggy?  Drop Froyo on it and give it some new life!  The new Bootlace app in Cydia (yes, like most things fun and unauthorized, you'll need to jailbreak) for the original iPhone and the 3G will get Froyo running without the use of a computer.  Froyo for the iPhone has had the keys remapped so that the volume rocker, power button, and home button on the Apple hardware work for Android's four buttons, but there's no Google apps (Gmail, GTalk, Market, etc) available just yet. 

If only you could download something to get rid of that silly proprietary connector. [Redmond Pie via EngadgetThanks Derek!

CyanogenMod 6 on the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G

5

You won't find it for download anywhere, it's being called "very broken" and don't dare ask for an ETA, but here's a quick peek at CyanogenMod 6 on the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G.  Less than 24 hours after getting properly rooted and a custom recovery made, this sure looks pretty.  Told you the ROMs would come soon.  [@kmobs]

Doodle Jump updated, now on sale until November 17th!

6

Aside from Angry Birds, I can only think of one other game that is as much fun (see: addictive) and that game is Doodle Jump. If you've been waiting for Doodle Jump to go on sale before you took the plunge in purchasing it, you'll be pleased to know that from now until November 17th it's available for only $.99 cents.

In addition to the sale, a total of four new themes (Jungle, Space, Night and Christmas) have been added. Most importantly, bug fixes to improve performance and correct a missing platforms bug have also been addressed. You'll find the download link after the break. Thanks Cameron!
