Android 2.0 On T-Mobile G1?

Look at the video below, it’s your friendly T-Mobile G1 running the Android 2.0 ‘Eclair’. It’s not a final Android 2.0 build nor is it anywhere close to being an official release, but it’s definitely still a sight to see. The amazing minds we have in the Android community decided to port over what they had in the Android 2.0 SDK  to the T-Mobile G1.

As you’ll see in the video, the 2.0 port on the G1 is very, very rough. It’s sluggish and not really usable but hey, it’s the proof-of-concept and effort that counts! The video goes through some new Android 2.0 features and while some stuff obviously doesn’t work, you still get the overall feel. The T-Mobile G1 (and myTouch 3G) hasn’t yet been confirmed to officially receive Android 2.0 but we’re crossing our fingers it’ll come soon. There’s no doubt that running Android 2.0 will make them feel brand new all over again. Let’s make it happen!

500x_droid-eris-leak-01

New leaked documents suggest all the Droid Eris grumblings we’ve heard were true: it should launch November 6, and it will supposedly run $99 after rebate. That’s pretty cheap considering it matches the specs of the $180 Hero.

What the iPhone Needs to Keep the Android Hordes at Bay

A couple of days ago, a friend was trying to key my email address into his aging feature flip cellphone. He was muttering about how painful the process was and how stupid the phone was, and he remarked that he was getting a new phone for his birthday — can’t wait. Me, being the tech-curious guy I am, asked him what he wanted. “I don’t know,” he asked. “What do you recommend?”

Watch NBA games live on your iPhone or Android

The NBA has dramatically updated its mobile offerings for the 2009-10 season, including a new application for the iPhone and Android that provides live video streams of games.
The slick looking app, NBA League Pass Mobile, allows fans to watch more than 40 live games each week. It also offers digital video recording technology to pause and rewind 30 seconds of action, access to up to two days of archived games, live stats, push alerts and more.
The cost: $39.99 per season.
Not cheap, but hey, that’s the price you pay for ostracizing your loved ones, right?
The new NBA League Mobile Pass is due to appear in the iTunes App Store and Android Market any time now, so with luck, you’ll have Chris Paul(notes) and Kevin Garnett(notes) in your back pocket before they tip-off in Boston on Monday.
To get the complete low-down, including more screenshots and news about the NBA’s new and improved $9.99 Game Time app, check out NewTeeVee.
The future is now.

Sprint: Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile Updates Coming

Sprint executive David Owens sat down for a virtual chat on Sprint’s Web site with consumers today, and updated folks with some good news about his carrier’s plans.

  • Google Android OS updates are coming for the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment. While he didn’t specify a version – 1.6 or 2.0 – HTC has previously confirmed that they’re working on an Android 2.0 update for the Hero.
  • Combination CDMA/GSM Android phones are also “a possibility but nothing this year.”
  • They’re considering an Android phone with a built-in MiFi-type router.
  • Android phones will get less expensive “as we see volume across the industry.”
  • Lots of HTC and BlackBerry phones coming next year. HTC phones “will be on the Android platform.”
  • Sprint will “add Wi-Fi to [the BlackBerry] Tour” and have other Wi-Fi BlackBerries going forward.
  • They’re testing Windows Mobile 6.5 updates for the HTC Touch Pro2 and other Windows phones; “plan for early 2010.”
  • They want Windows Mobile 7.0 “as soon as possible, but dependent on Microsoft.”
  • Expect WiMAX phones next year.
  • No tethering for phones that require Everything plans (such as all smartphones) from here on out.

So, some stuff we knew, some we didn’t, but it’s all welcome and interesting. Looks like 2010 will be a very big year for Android.
