The Daily Slash: April 7th, 2011

There's been a bit of a change in the hearts and minds of several big players today, an uncertain day full of fear and doubt to be sure. That's not to say that there weren't any fantastical gadgets and technologies to be spoken about however, and we've got those for you too. One of the oddest of these was a press conference called by Facebook to discuss not a new gadget, not a new system of poking your friends, nay, twas as Open Compute Project they spoke of. Then it got REAL interesting.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 7th, 2011

Welcome to Android Morning - that's where we are today. Of course, if you like, you could look at a few video games while you're at it, as we've been dipping our fingers into those circuits this morning as well. First let us speak of Google, a group that's just purchased a content farm - no, server space - no, how about almost half of a German solar power plant? Yes indeed! What'll you do next, Google, get involved at a government level? I hope so!

HTC EVO Shift 4G goes head to head with EVO 4G, Motorola DROID 2 [Video]

Sprint's HTC EVO Shift 4G is official, and retailer Wirefly has wasted no time in putting up a demo video of their own to encourage would-be WiMAX buyers to opt for their pre-order rather than buying from Sprint direct. In a ten minute video they demo the EVO Shift 4G's main features and then pit it against an HTC EVO 4G and some other QWERTY Android devices to see how it compares.

The Daily Slash: November 9 2010

Let me talk to you for a moment about a couple of the odder things that happened today, and this is outside the story you're going to hear about in the special "The Daily Slash" section you all know and love. First, there's a lot of ports, ROMS, and hacks flying around the smartphone world on a day-to-day, but today there was a rather important one surfacing: Android to iPhone. Like two rival gangs having a child together. No violence between them yet, but someone DID get shot today - a Galaxy Tab. In response, Angry Birds released 45 new levels, and someone records a UFO on an HTC EVO 4G. TRON throws a card into the hat with their 3rd giant trailer, iPhone's GLASSGATE ramps up, and all Apple handhelds grow a little tail. All this and more, today, on THE DAILY SLASH!

The Daily Slash: September 24th 2010

Welcome to the Friday edition of The Daily Slash. Hopefully your week went by well, and fast. The weekend is just about on us, but we have just one last bit to get through. Tonight, in our story from around the Web, we've got a robot that learns something not so good (but it's awesome). And then, follow us as we wrap up what's been going on around the R3 Media Network.

NES Controller Used to Play Nintendo Emulator on HTC EVO 4G

NES Controller Used to Play Nintendo Emulator on HTC EVO 4G

There's an emulator of every kind on the Android platform right now. Ranging from old-school consoles, to newer (yet still old-school) models, you can find all types of games to play while you're on the move, without having to get your hands on the old-time console. The Nintendo emulators seem to be some of the most popular, and considering the titles available, that's not a surprise at all. But, while playing your favorite games of yester-year may be fun, sometimes playing with your fingers blocking the screen isn't (if you don't have a physical keyboard, of course). So what would be better? How about the original Nintendo Entertainment System's controller? Yeah, we thought it might.

Sprint “product development guru” jumps ship

Sprint “product development guru” jumps ship

Sprint has lost a Senior VP, Kevin Packingham, described as the carrier's "product development guru" and supposedly instrumental in paving the way for the WiMAX-friendly HTC EVO 4G and the upcoming Samsung Epic 4G.  The carrier confirmed that Packingham has left his role to take up another position at an unnamed Kansas City company; Sprint will now have to find a new expert to demonstrate their high-end devices at launch events.

Sprint 4G spreads: 48 areas now with WiMAX

We already know that Sprint are looking to 4G to salve their fortunes, and so news that the WiMAX network is spreading can only be a good thing for investors and for data-hungry users.  Fresh to feel the warm touch of 4G on their skin are Modesto and Stockton, California; Jacksonville, Florida, Wilmington, Delaware; and Grand Rapids, Michigan.

That now makes forty-eight metropolitan areas with WiMAX coverage - the full list is in the press release below - and Sprint reckon subscribers will see up to ten-times the performance of a regular 3G connection.

Sprint has apparently done what many thought impossible: finished testing on Android 2.2 for the EVO 4G, before the end of the year. In fact, it's happening next week.
