From Htcyou: One of the most celebrated Android ROM authors, Cyanogen, does what was deemed impossible –put Android 2.2 FroYo on the the HTC Dream/G1 and Magic/MyTouch 3G. More »

Google co-founder Larry Page accuses Steve Jobs of “rewriting history” when the Apple CEO says that Google followed Apple into the smartphone market. Page insists that Google had been developing phones long before Apple unveiled the iPhone in 2007. Although Google did buy out a small firm called Android a few years prior to the 1st generation iPhone launch, early prototypes of Android shown in late 2007 were reminiscent of BlackBerrys. More »

From Htcyou: HTC has confirmed that the Droid Incredible, Evo 4G, MyTouch Slide, and Desire are on the priority list to receive Android 2.2 updates, but none of them is getting the new OS until the second half of this year. Although HTC has not made a statement about 2009 models, the adverb that “most” 2010 units will get FroYo indicates to me that there is no chance for the likes of the G1, MyTouch 3G, and Droid Eris since not “all” 2010 smartphones will be upgraded.

From Htcyou: Furthering confirming the Radio Shack snapshot indicating that HTC’s myTouch Slide is inbound at any moment, here is an FCC file that proves T-Mobile is getting the G1 successor. Compare the FCC’s picture of the Slide’s back with the one that Droid Developer posted in January… More »

From Htcyou: Getting sick of these sketchy screen grabs? Appearing on Radio Shack’s Wireless Direct2U’s database, bearing SKU 1705596, is the previously leaked HTC myTouch Slide (successor to the G1, aka Dream). More »

Today, Apple filed a massive copyright infringement lawsuit against rival smartphone manufacturer HTC and has requested that all HTC phones be pulled from sale in America. In its suit, Apple has cited almost every model that HTC makes. More »

From Htcyou: Adobe’s MWC appearance revealed something big: only smartphones with ARM Cortex-A8 or faster processors will run Flash 10.1 properly. Also, 50Mb of free RAM is required, but all current Android devices have this covered; unfortunately, in North America, only the Nexus One and Motorola Droid have the CPU requirements, so this means that the HTC Magic (myTouch), Dream (G1), Hero, Motorola CLIQ, and other top selling Android phones will not be supported.

From Htcyou: The programming geniuses over at OpenEclair have come a long way since the first version of its open source Eclair 2.1 ROM was released on January 28th. Now in build 1.2.2, OpenEclair is generally regarded as the best, fastest (and certainly the most promising) Android 2.1 ROM for the HTC Magic and Dream (myTouch 3G and G1 respectively). Check out the videos below to see how well the ROM runs on a Dream (G1). More »

From Htcyou: HTC expected a tough 2009. In the last quarter of 2008, unconsolidated revenues were NT$47.38 billion but then dropped significantly the next year: 2009 Q3 revenues were only NT$34.01 billion but rallied to a healthy NT$41.08 billion in Q4. More »

From Htcyou: All of these exploits are courtesy of hobbyist hackers who seemingly care more about their smartphones than the carriers that sell them. A few days ago, Cyanogen released his ROM for the newly rooted Nexus One, adding multi-touch to Browser. Although no other application works with multi-touch yet, Cyanogen vows to implement the highly coveted feature to the rest of Android. Also, HTC Magic (myTouch 3G) and Dream (G1) owners might be happy to know that their phones can currently run hacked versions of Android 2.1 thanks to Manup456, whose Eclair ROM installs on the aforementioned models and functions nearly flawlessly.

From Htcyou: Let me get this straight, just in case there is any confusion: Android 1.6 came out on September 15th, 2.0 on October 26th, so why is my Android powered smartphone still stuck on version 1.5 or 1.6? Google’s open source Android project arrived with the promise that it would be free and completely open to everyone. Unfortunately, one of the massive problems that Android has created is a lack of universal standards and regulations. We are in smartphone anarchy. More »

From Htcyou: HTC has been one of the fastest growing technology companies over the past three years, yet much of the public in the western world knows little about this Taiwanese firm. As 2010 moves along, HTC’s relative obscurity will be replaced by recognition and acclaim. Formerly just an original design manufacturer (ODM), which supplied handheld devices like PDAs and smartphones to big name clients, HTC officially launched its own branded smartphone in 2006 with the Blackberry-like Excalibur. In 2007, HTC released its preemptive counter to the iPhone, the Touch (Windows Mobile 6), which was generally criticized for its poor TouchFLO UI, mediocre screen, and lack of 3G. Years later, after significant maturity, together with Google and its Android operating system, HTC is preparing to compete against the established smartphone hierarchy in North America. More »

I know the Android OS for smartphones is nothing new, but my amazement has been renewed. I say this as I sit, writing this post from my HTC Dream on the bus. Usually this time would go to five or six games of sudoku, but thanks to an app I’ve recently discovered, never again will a moment of my life be wasted on personal time or fun and games. More »

A quiet yet significant milestone in the life of the HTC Dream - aka the G1 or the Google Phone, the first mobile device equipped with Google’s highly anticipated Android operating system - six months after its release in October, T-Mobile has sold their one millionth G1 in the US. Even though the iPhone sold a massive 1.6 million units just in the last quarter, More »
