Microsoft now chasing Huawei for another licensing deal

6

 

Chinese company Huawei is the latest to find itself on the end of a chase from Microsoft over royalty payments from its Android products.

They confirmed on Monday that "negotiations are in progress" over licensing the patents Microsoft claims Android infringes upon. Victor Xu, Chief Marketing Officer for Huawei said of the news, "We always respect the intellectual property of companies. But we have 65000 patents worldwide too. We have enough to protect our interests. We are a very important stakeholder in Android."

It's hard to see how Huawei may fare better than HTC did in a similar situation, and so the Microsoft train continues to roll along.

Just a few days ago we saw the HTC Thunderbolt get a semi-functional MIUI port, and today we were graced with the good news that the data and SMS issues have been resolved. Developer DroidVicious tweeted out that another developer who had been helping out, Reid Holland, was able to get data fully functional on the device. This news is huge for HTC Thunderbolt owners who have been wanting some MIUI love on their device. DroidVicious says he is working on something for the Droid Eris and then he will be hopefully releasing it tonight!

Google deprecating its BlackBerry Gmail app

29

Want a real Gmail app? A man's Gmail app? Not like you were ever really going to find one on a BlackBerry, but what those poor clunkers did have is going the way of the dinosaur, as Google's decided to deprecate its BB app. Starting Nov. 22, support ends, and our CrackBerry cousins will be relegated to the mobile browser. Not that that's the worst thing the world, we suppose (hey, it was pretty much good enough for an official "native" iOS app). But it still means that Android has the best Gmail app around. Try not to act surprised.

Gingerbread for the Sprint Epic 4G begins rolling out tomorrow (Nov. 9)

39

We just heard from a Sprint ninja that Gingerbread for the Samsung Epic 4G should begin a slow rollout tomorrow (Nov 9).  The initial plan is to get it out to three percent of the users the first day, which should avoid any huge fiasco like we saw with the Froyo update.  The update will continue to slowly roll out over the following eight days, until it gets to 100 percent of the users. 

As we already saw the EI22 kernel source released, it makes sense that its the version we'll be seeing.  Besides all the perks that come with Android 2.3, the change log includes:

  • Airrave notification fixes
  • SMS area code fix
  • PRL and Profile update fix
  • EAS HTML Tagging fix
  • Bluetooth headset quality fix
  • Lock screen date fix

Hit the break for more details, and hit the forums link to discuss.  It's been a long time coming!

Thanks, friendly Sprint ninja!

Atari's Greatest Hits now on your Android device!

15


Youtube link for mobile viewing

Ahh, Atari. Long before PlayStation, XBOX and Wii there was Atari. While many of the Atari franchise games have been re-released over the years, they've not quite may their way to Android. That all changed a few days ago with the release of Atari's Greatest Hits in the Android Market.

As a starter, you get Missile Command for free when you download the app and other classics such as Asteroids, Centipede, Gravatar and many others are supported through the in-app purchasing options as game packs. Each game pack will cost you $.99 or if you're looking to go all in, you can purchase all 100 games for $10. The full list is available in the Android Market.

Personally, I went with the $10 for 100 -- It's cheaper that way and you'll never have to worry about buying a game pack for $.99 and only getting one game you like but to each their own. If you dig old school gaming as much as I do, go ahead and jump past the break for the download. Be warned though, you may have to excuse yourself from any plans you made previously.
