Dell's Aero

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Today's revelation of the Dell Aero is one of those sigh-inducing sorts of occasions. The Aero, officially announced this morning, is Dell's first stab at the smartphone market (by Dell's definitions, at least -- the company released the Streak earlier this month, but it insists the 5-inch call-making device is a tablet and not a phone). Billed as "one of the lightest Android smartphones in the U.S.," the Aero is now available for $99.99 with a two-year contract from AT&T.

So why the harsh words? It's not because of the Aero's unremarkable hardware -- the phone runs on a 624MHz processor, a significant step down from the 1GHz chip used in most top-notch Android offerings these days -- but rather because of the software Dell has chosen to load onto the device.

The Aero, you see, runs on Android 1.5 -- an early version of Google's mobile operating system that's 16 months out of date and a lifetime behind in functionality and performance. For a brand new phone to be shipping with a year-old version of Android is simply embarrassing, both to Dell and to the image of the Android brand.
Dell's Aero Smartphone: An Outdated Android

Dell Aero Android 1.5Android 1.5 -- or "Cupcake," as it's nicknamed -- debuted in April of 2009, just six months after Google's first Android phone entered the world. Android has made leaps and bounds in growth and development since then, with four significant upgrades to the core operating system.

We're not talking about small stuff here: Android's user interface has been revamped, countless features have been added in, and the overall system speed has been boosted numerous times in the releases since 1.5. Dell may have given the Aero some bells and whistles of its own -- a handwriting recognition utility, for example, and a "Flash Lite-enhanced" version of the Android browser -- but it can't make up for the months of innovation and improvement it's shutting out.

No matter how you look at it, a phone with Android 1.5 is going to be slower and significantly less advanced than a device with a recent version of the OS. And it's going to be crippled when it comes to third-party applications, too, as plenty of apps require Android 2.0 or higher to operate. Some, such as Google's new Voice Actions voice-command system, won't run on anything less than Android 2.2.

And while the high-end Android phones may cost closer to $200, price is no excuse: For $49.99, half the price of the Aero, you could get Verizon's LG Ally phone. It ships with Android 2.1 and is already confirmed to be in line for the Android 2.2 upgrade. Even within AT&T, known for its less-than-wholehearted embrace of Android, you could snag the HTC Aria with Android 2.1 for an extra 30 bucks.
Dell's Aero and the Bigger Android Picture

Dell Aero AndroidThe Aero actually isn't Dell's first Android-related offense. The Streak, Dell's 5-inch-gadget-that-makes-calls-but-isn't-a-phone, launched with Android 1.6 about a week and a half ago. That isn't much better.

This trend is precisely why I've argued that it's time for the baked-in Android UI to die. Companies like Dell (and also Sony Ericsson, with its recent Xperia 10 AT&T Android phone) spend so much time working on their modifications to the Android software that their devices are outdated by the time they debut. And even manufacturers that manage to do better with the release cycle tend to be extra slow on rolling out upgrades, thanks to the extensive software adjustments required with each release. The phone-makers may be trying to put their own marks on Android, but the manner in which they're going about it ultimately does a disservice to their users. (And yes, there is a better way.)

Trying to sell a new phone with Android 1.5 is like trying to sell a new PC with Windows Me. Even if you're selling it for slightly less than the top-of-the-line models down the aisle, it's ridiculous, it's silly -- and it's completely inexcusable.

Come on, Dell. You can do better than that.

Voice Actions for Android

Monday, August 16, 2010

An Android phone is a handheld computer, a music player, a notepad, a GPS navigation unit and more, all rolled into one sleek device that fits in your pocket. Today’s phones do so many things for us that sometimes we don’t even think about how we do them.

Even though our phones do all these new things, the most natural way of interacting with a phone remains what it always has been: speaking. And to that end, we’re pleased to introduce Voice Actions for Android. Voice Actions are a series of spoken commands that let you control your phone using your voice. Call businesses and contacts, send texts and email, listen to music, browse the web, and complete common tasks, all just by speaking into your phone.

To use Voice Actions, tap the microphone button on the Google search box on your home screen, or press down for a few seconds on the physical search button on your phone to activate the “Speak Now” screen. Let Mike LeBeau, the lead engineer for Voice Actions, show you in this video.

Speak any of these commands to perform a Voice Action on your phone:
  • send text to [contact] [message]
  • listen to [artist/song/album]
  • call [business]
  • call [contact]
  • send email to [contact] [message]
  • go to [website]
  • note to self [note]
  • navigate to [location/business name]
  • directions to [location/business name]
  • map of [location]
And of course, you can still conduct a Google search using your voice.

Oracle has sued Google in related java android

Android is currently up the popularity and audiences know him as the operating system (OS) owned by Google. But in the midst of popularity, Google faces patent infringement charges related to his OS's.

Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems (which have Java) worth U.S. $ 5.6 billion or about USD 50.4 trillion earlier this year. Many analysts say the lawsuit against Google signify Oracle wanted to be more aggressive in seeking licensees for Java.

As is known, Java is a technology used in various types of Internet-based products. Oracle Chief Executive Larry Ellison said Oracle's Java is a major asset, pointing to its use in various electronic devices, from PCs to DVD players.

Oracle Corp. on Thursday said it has sued Google Inc., with respect to patent and copyright infringement in the development of Android software.

Google "intentionally, directly and repeatedly violated the intellectual property related to the Java Oracle" to develop Android, Oracle spokeswoman, Karen Tillman in a statement. "These lawsuits seek appropriate solutions."

Approximately 200 thousand smart phones and other devices operated by the Android operating system sold every day, said Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt on August 4th conference.

A copy of the complaint was not immediately available. Oracle and Google each one does not immediately comply with several requests for comment, according to Reuters.

The Android applications go beyond entertainment however, and can be used in all areas of your daily life. If you want it your Android phone can help make it happen. It can be an adventure, weeding through the many applications, trying to find the perfect applications for your phone. In the interest of saving you some time, here are the top free Android applications in the Android Market Subscriping to paid applications may be all right however I would certainly test all the free android applications first

At the time of this writing the Smart Tic Tac Toe app is the top free Android application download in the Android market. This typoe of tic tac toe is not the same game that you will remember playing when you were a kid (or when you get bored). This game gives you more squares to play in which gives you more ways to win the game (and to lose the game if you want to be negative). In this game you need five of the same character in a row to win. This extends the game's playing time (and fun)!

Another great application is Sudoku for the Android. Whether you are new to the game of Sudoku, or have been playing for years, this is a fun and easy application to use.

Those with a touch screen Android and those with a track ball can use this application. You can even play the game with a phone that uses a keyboard. Whether you have been playing for years or just starting out there is a level for you. Top Sudoku players can be challenged by the levels on this free Android application. You will have to keep in mind that you will have to use an android mobile phone

There is nothing more frustrating than being out of the house, deciding that you want to see a movie and then having no way of figuring out what is playing nearby or when it starts. You probably had to resort to your old phone's (slow) internet browser and search tool to find information. Now it's easy to figure out what to see with the Ikamobile Movie Finder. Ikamobile Movie Finder is the top downloaded free Android app for movie fans. You can also use the app to watch movie previews and look for information on new releases as well as find movie titles and show times in your area.

Free applications for the Android are in abundance, and it can take precious hours trying to find the best ones. After all, since they are free, you don't have to worry about wasting any money. You only need to worry about wasting time.

Hopefully our top picks will save you time, bring you entertainment and enhance your life. After hours of research it is our opinion that these are some of the best applications for your Android phone. You need to remember that you have got to use a android mobile phone

Sync Contact with android phone

A Guide To Managing & Syncing Your Google Android Phone Contacts Google Android Phones are mobile devices powered by a Google operating system. They are different from other mobile devices because they allow for open source programming. Open source programming allows users to develop programming software for use on the device. These programs can range from games for entertainment purposes to helpful application to help manage daily tasks.
All of the applications can be accessed through the Google Android Market.There are thousands of free and paid applications, with the amount growing daily. All of the paid applications can be purchased using Google Checkout.Since the device is powered by Google it offers access to popular Google applications such as; Google Earth, Google Latitude, Google Sky, YouTube, Gmail, Google Translate and several others. Most of the Google Android devices offer up to 5 Mega Pixel cameras and the capability to upload videos directly to YouTube.
There are currently a number of Android handsets running  different software versions including, the Eclair and Cupcake updates. Since the release of the first Android phone with T-Mobile, Android devices have increased in popularity due to being a fully customizable and user friendly interface. All of the Google Android devices offer a full touch screen device with either a full or virtual QWERTY keyboard. Google is now providing Android devices for Verizon Wireless as well as Sprint.
Creating and managing contacts for Android devices is very simple since the phone is powered by Google. Here are the things needed to complete this task:
1. Google Android device
2. Active Gmail account
3. List of phone contacts

Log in to your Gmail account

First you will need to log into the Gmail account. Once logged in select the contact link on the left hand side of the screen.Clicking on the link will take you to the contact management area. in the upper left hand side of the screen there will be a plus sign icon. Click on this icon to create a new contact. Input all of the contact information and once finished click the save link. Repeat this process until all of the contacts needed have been saved.
Next from your active Android device log into the Gmail account where the contacts are stored. Once logged in go to the main menu on the device and select the contacts icon. Under contacts select the menu/options icon to bring up a list of available options. Under this list you will see an option for accounts. Select accounts, this will bring up all of the active e-mail accounts set up on the phone. Under the list of e-mail accounts select the Gmail account. Once the account is selected turn on the sync contacts option.
Now that the account is synced with the phone all of the contacts will be transferred to the device.

Syncing your contacts with your Android phone

Syncing your Gmail account to your Google Android device is the easiest way to maintain your contacts. It allows you to have a backup of all of the contacts in the device stored within the Gmail system. This is extremely helpful in cases of lost, stolen or damaged phones. With standard phones the only way to retrieve contacts is through the device itself. With the Google Android phone the device is not need to restore the contacts. Once the email account is registered in the replacement device the contacts can be retrieved following the same easy steps. Also once the device is synced with Gmail, any new phone contacts that are placed directly on the phone will be saved to the Gmail account automatically.
The easy and intuitive nature of the phone is one of the reasons that more and more wireless users are considering Google Android Devices the perfect device for them. The Google Android devices allow the user to have the synching capabilities of a traditional PDA/Smart device with a simple to use interface.To prove this Verizon has positioned their new Google Android phone, the Motorola Droid, as a phone that "Does" in a world of Doesn't. With the introduction of even more Android devices, manufacturers such as Palm and Blackberry are trying to find ways to keep up with and surpass the Google Android devices.

android, motor industry

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

The ability to install games on a phone is nothing new but the latest generation of phones have taken that to the next level with the introduction of various sensors and devices that allow the phone to do much more. Through creation of these mobile platforms a new industry of mobile device application developers has been born generating a myriad applications for every conceivable task.
In this thriving new market there are many manufacturers but the majority of them are using one Operating System which is Android. The Android Operating System is rather like Windows running on most desktop and laptop computers today. At present in a recent report by the National Purchase Diary (NPD) Android is the 2nd most popular operating system of choice for the first quarter of 2010 with Blackberry and iOS being ranked first and third respectively.
The most distinctive feature of the Android platform is the fact that it was open-sourced by Google meaning anyone can develop it. If the changes that they make are advantageous to the roadmap of the platform then they will be adopted. This means that the Android platform has a large community of developers ranging from enthusiasts to developers in large corporation's all working towards a common goal - the success of the platform.
The Android Operating System is based on a Linux which is a Unix based operating system that has been around for a very long time. Linux is commonly found in the server rooms of large industries where a robust operating system is require as downtime would be unacceptable. Sitting on-top of the Linux operating system is a thin layer that consists of drivers for the hardware and services such as a database etc. Running on top of all this is a Vitual Machine in which all the applications run. A virtual machine is not a new idea and can be thought of as a 'standard computer' that always behaves the same was regardless of the hardware. This gives the Android application developers the ability to write a wide variety of application on a vast range of Android based phones.
The native Android operating system and therefore most phones using the Android operating system offer the following features.
Handset layouts
The platform is adaptable to larger, VGA, 2D graphics library, 3D graphics library based on OpenGL ES 2.0 specifications, and traditional smartphone layouts.
SQLite, a lightweight relational database, is used for data storage purposes
Android supports connectivity technologies including GSM/EDGE, IDEN, CDMA, EV-DO, UMTS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and WiMAX.
SMS and MMS are available forms of messaging, including threaded text messaging and now Android Cloud to Device Messaging Framework(C2DM) is also a part of Android Push Messaging service.
Web browser
The web browser available in Android is based on the open-source WebKit layout engine, coupled with Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. The browser scores a 93/100 on the Acid3 Test.
Java support
While Android applications are written in Java, there's no Java Virtual Machine in the platform and Java byte code is not executed. Java classes get recompiled into Dalvik executable and run on Dalvik virtual machine. Dalvik is a specialized virtual machine designed specifically for Android and optimized for battery-powered mobile devices with limited memory and CPU. Android does not support J2ME, like some other mobile operating systems.
Media support
Android supports the following audio/video/still media formats: H.263, H.264 (in 3GP or MP4 container), MPEG-4 SP, AMR, AMR-WB (in 3GP container), AAC, HE-AAC (in MP4 or 3GP container), MP3, MIDI, Ogg Vorbis, WAV, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP.
Additional hardware support
Android can use video/still cameras, touchscreens, GPS, accelerometers, magnetometers, accelerated 2D bit blits (with hardware orientation, scaling, pixel format conversion) and accelerated 3D graphics.
Development environment
Includes a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory and performance profiling, and a plugin for the Eclipse IDE.
Like many phone-based application stores, the Android Market is a catalog of applications that can be downloaded and installed to target hardware over-the-air, without the use of a PC. Originally only free applications were supported. Paid-for applications have been available on the Android Market in the United States since 19 February 2009. The Android Market has been expanding rapidly. As of April 30, 2010, it had over 50,000 Android applications for download.
Android has native support for multi-touch which was initially made available in handsets such as the HTC Hero. The feature was originally disabled at the kernel level (possibly to avoid infringing Apple's patents on touch-screen technology). Google has since released an update for the Nexus One and the Motorola Droid which enables multi-touch natively.
Support for A2DP and AVRCP were added in version 1.5;sending files (OPP) and accessing the phone book (PBAP) were added in version 2.0; and voice dialing and sending contacts between phones were added in version 2.2.
Not supported by default but as seen with the HTC Evo 4G, handset manufacturers can build front-facing cameras into their phones, so Qik, a software from the Android Market can use it for video-calling.
Multitasking of applications is available.
All of these features make the Android platform perfect for Automotive applications where a small embedded computer solution is required to perform useful functionality such as satellite navigation (using Google maps).
Some car manufacturers have started to investigate the addition of an Android based solution in their vehicles and early in 2010 the first car leveraging Android was launched. The car is called the Roewe 350 which is manufactured by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation. You can use the computer for directions and traffic reports just as you can with many other GPS devices. But it's not all vanilla; you can also surf the web and engage in some form of Internet chatting.
There has also been rumours of General Motors in talks with Google about creating a similar device for their range of cars. The system would control a variety of features in the car but may also be controlled via another Android based device.
I think that we will be seeing more of the Android platform in the Motor Industry and it is easy to imagine an in-car computer where downloading applications or setting your car wallpaper is an everday occurance.
