Mint personal finance app now available for Android smartphones

18

Mint for Android

That's right, folks, the Mint personal finance app [market link] is finally available for Android. For the uninitiated, Mint plugs into your bank accounts (kind of like Microsoft Money did back in the day) and helps you keep track of expenses, spending, budgeting and the like. It's free, it's a lifesaver. And if we didn't still keep our life savings in a sock in the top drawer, we'd probably use it, too. [Mint] Thanks to everyone who sent this in

Dell Aero appears on AT&T's website, with Google apps, search in tow

4

Dell Aero AT&T 

The Dell Aero has shown up on AT&T's website with a "coming soon" tagline.  While the Aero still looks less than impressive when compared to some of the other new Android phones hitting the wild, there is a bit of good news.  It's seems that once again Engadget was right, and the phone will have all the Google services we've come to expect on Android devices --  even Google search.  This is good news for those of you on AT&T who may have been worried that future handsets were all going to be crippled (or not crippled) like the poor little Backflip.

At least there's now a viable option for AT&T subscribers who want a subsidized Android phone that does the things Android phones should do.  As soon as details like price and release date surface, we'll keep you posted.  Thanks Garrett!

Hey Pennsylvania, are you ready for some Sprint WiMax 4G?

17

WiMax

At this point, it's pretty obvious, the Sprint HTC Evo 4G will utilize the 4G WiMax service. The only problem is that the coverage areas for this still pretty limited to say the least. Well, Pennsylvania, your time has come. For those in Lancaster, Reading, Harrisburg and York, you are now able to snag yourself some 4G, and in case you are on the edge about the coverage in your area, Sprint is offering a 30-day guarantee. For a running list of all cities that currently have Sprint's WiMax 4G, and the planned upcoming cities, be sure to check out this thread for the latest updates. [via Sprint]

LG Ally said to be available May 20, though no carrier officially announced

11

LG Ally

A cryptic but overly long press release this morning confirmed that the LG Ally is, in fact, a horizontal slider with Android, and is promotionally tied to the "Iron Man 2" movie, two things we knew last week. It did, however, mention that the Ally "will be available May 20." Whether that's with a carrier remains to be seen -- we've heard Verizon -- and what the exact specs are remain up in the air. Here's the exact verbage:

LG Ally is the first Android device to boast an Augmented Reality application -- currently exclusive to LG. Consumers who purchase LG Ally can download the Augmented Reality app, featuring exclusive Iron Man 2 content, at www.lgim2.com or by texting 95173 from their mobile phone. Present throughout Iron Man 2, LG Ally allows users to explore and experience Augmented Reality through built-in applications and software. A touch screen handset featuring a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, the Ally is the ultimate complement for technology enthusiasts who, like Tony Stark, expect nothing but the best. LG Ally will be available May 20.

It doesn't say much that the microsite (which we also first told you about last week) LG launched still says to check back April 30. Not an overly good start for LG's first Android phone. Here's to hoping things look up by launch time. Full release after the break.

HTC releases source code for Droid Incredible, Eris, Legend

2

HTC Droid Incredible Source Code

HTC late last week released its kernel for the Droid Incredible (along with the Eris and Legend) giving chefs another platform on which to cook customs ROMs. That said, we're still waiting on the Incredible to be cracked open and rooted. And while HTC is required to release the kernel code, its proprietary code remains, well, proprietary, so we're not getting a complete look under the hood. But it's definitely a start.

The Motorola Backflip has been rooted! (for what it's worth)

2

moto backflip root

Are you one of the (at least several) Motorola Backflip owners  jealous with all of the rooting and ROM'ing posts that fill our forums for many other devices, and not yours? Well, for those that have been patient, and stuck with the Backflip, even after it was stamped as crippled (when it's really not), your patience has paid off. After tons of hard work, the Motorola Backflip has finally been rooted, but now what will come next? Will we begin to see custom ROMs for this device, or some additional features uncovered? A full explanation of the process required to achieve root abilities on your device and all the files needed can be found here.  If you are brave enough to give it a shot, please share your experiences with the rest of our community here in our forums!

Adobe to give free Android phones to employees

11

Following in the footsteps of Google, Adobe is giving away free Android phones to its employees. And before you all rush to work for Adobe, remember that Flash is coming to Android in 2.2 Froyo. Adobe needs its employees to be familiar with Flash on Android and there's just no better way to do that than to give them Android devices on which to develop. After all, Adobe doesn't want their employees to use that other phone. The device that Adobe will be giving away isn't known yet but it's probably some combination of Nexus One, Droid, or Droid Incredible. If they give away the Evo, well, then you can rush to work for Adobe. [cnet]

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible scratch test

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible scratch test

Do not try this at home. For that matter, it hurts just looking at it. But sure enough, it's a Verizon HTC Droid Incredible getting coins thrown at it and keys dragged across the screen. Basically, it's like being in pocket Hell. [Imageshack via Android Central Forums] Thanks, Brandon!

Getting started with your Android phone (Welcome Droid Incredible owners!)

36

Inside Android

Hey everybody!  This week we're gonna go back to basics and show our support to those who switched over to Android by picking up the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon.  Now I know a lot of this is common knowledge to you salty Android vetrans, but think back to the first time you put your mitts on a G1 or the Motorola Droid.  Hopefully, there was someone around to help you get acclimated and into the swing of all things Android.  If not, then you know exactly why we do what we do here at Android Central.

So welcome newcomers, kick back and have a look to see just what you got yourself into, and I'll bet you feel even better about your choice when we're finished.

Tiny, blurry HTC Evo 4G appears in Sprint Store

32

Sprint HTC Evo 4G

This blurry little picture of the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, allegedly in a Sprint store in Central Florida, means one of two things: Either we're still hurting from last night, or the Evo 4G's actually made its way into a Sprint store. OK, both are probably true. Question is, what's it doing there? We're only about a week away from Sprint's Evo 4G event in NYC. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll be available immediately after. But now that Apple has announced the date for WWDC (where we all expect a new, next-gen iPhone), we're betting Sprint wants to get the Evo 4G out the door just as quickly as possible. Stand by.

Verizon Droid Incredible shipping backed up to mid-May

61

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible shipping

Looks like there's pretty good demand for the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible. Big Red's website now lists the Android smartphone as "shipping by May 14." That could mean anytime before that, we guess, but we've already seen that date pushed back a couple of times.

If you're going to get an Incredible this weekend, chime in and let us know where you found yours.
