Skyfire 2.0 for Android was launched yesterday. It is the first public beta after the limited private beta version for early testers.
The browser is very stable, faster than Fennec for Android and yes, it could play Flash videos (YouTube only so far) too that we all have been waiting for! Other Flash elements don’t work though, but let’s say, it’s just the beginning!
HTC Desire root is now available for download which gives you full file (root) access on your Android 2.1.
Paul from Modaco forums has also posted some details on the limitations of this root and has also posted instructions and requirements to perform this on your HTC Desire.
HTC Desire root is out and it will be using a 10MB installation of Linux called as Tiny Core. HTC Desire and HTC Legend root news was out a couple of months back when Paul from Modaco forums was able to root both the devices.
Rooting HTC Desire was not as easy as it used to be in the times of HTC Hero and other devices. But he finally managed to pull the root for HTC Desire. HTC Legend root will be coming soon.
Skyfire 2.0 for Android phones is now available in the Android Market for public download! Skyfire 1.0 for Android remained in beta for testing purposes and is now finally available as Skyfire 2.0.
Mozilla just came out with the first pre-alpha release of Fennec for Android yesterday, and as Skyfire didn’t wanted to stay behind, they are in with the launch of their browser for Android – that also supports FLASH videos!
Fennec for Android pre-alpha has just been released today for public to try out and give feedback. Developers want the browser to be developed according to the end user’s needs and requirements.
Since it’s a 10.2MB installation and requires atleast an Android 2.0 device with OpenGL support, I tried it on my Nexus One. The browser is pretty slow at the moment, but like the developer said, “it’s even more of a pre-nightly build (even earlier than pre-alpha)”. It’s usable though.
Fennec for Android, Firefox Mobile, ‘super’ pre-alpha version is now available for download! Yes, it is still in its very early stages, but atleast it could open websites ;)
It has been a long time since Firefox has been talking about Fennec for Android and promised with an alpha release soon. They kept their promise, and the first alpha release is out for public download.
Nokia was once my favourite mobile phone choice, but due to their several last high-end failures, I have now moved away from Nokia to others. Nokia N8 photos and documents have been leaked earlier, but Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-Review has got his hands on the device for review.
According to the Nokia N8 review by him, it could be another disappointment for Nokia fans. It’s gotÂ 12 megapixels camera, which take great photos – a bit better than the Sony Ericsson Satio, but what’s most disappointing is the new Symbian^3 OS.
The wait is finally over for all the HTC fans. One of HTCâ€™s much awaited smartphone, Droid Incredible is now available for pre-order starting today.
All those who want to get HTC Droid Incredible can reserve their handset on Verizonâ€™s website for just $199.99 with a 2 year contract.
iPhone 4G/HD pictures claiming to be leaked images of the upcoming iPhone device have been popping up now and then online. But none of us is sure how authentic they are.
Something interesting was found by Engadget today. A device which seems to be the iPhone 4G/HD was found in an iPhone 3G case dropped in a bar.
