Android Jelly Bean

The folks over at Android Authority have a neat little guide for anybody who wants to update their Samsung Galaxy S3 the the latest version of Android. The update to version 4.1.1 or Jelly Bean as its known, is done via a ROM called TaStEoFbEaNs (tasteofbeans). A clever name I’m sure you’ll all agree!

There are a whole host of different ROM’s for the different versions of the Galaxy S3, depending on what carrier you are on or what country you are in, this ROM is for Verizon and the SCH-I535 model. It’s like a dolly mixture of different features including the gallery from the Note 2. Although there are still a few bugs in the ROM and Warning!! you flash it at you own risk but it might just be worth it to experience, as Android Authority put it “jelly Bean’s undisputed smooth-as-butter interface”!

Since the rumors for the upcoming Android tablet of Samsung showed up around the web, Galaxy Tab is constantly in the daily news of almost every mobile-oriented media. Starting with the specs, going through the official announcement, ending with release dates and prices in various countries and carriers.

The first thing that we are going to inform you today is regarding the price of Galaxy Tab. Today is the launch day of the Tab in Sprint’s network. It will cost 399$ on a 2-year contract. The possible data plans are 29.99$ per month for 2GB of data or 59.99$ per month for 5GB of data and unlimited messaging. So to sum up, if you go on a 2GB plan, you’ll have to pay about 720$ for the contract and additional 399$ for the Galaxy Tab itself. Choosing the 5GB plan will cost you about 1440$ for the contract. And all these numbers does not included taxes and surcharges.

The second this that is interesting around Galaxy Tab is that Samsung has released the open source parts of the source code of the tablet. To most of you this wouldn’t mean anything, but for the developers these are very good news (actually soon the users will benefit from this, too). Of course, many of Samsung’s applications are not open source, but developers could use this source to build various ROMs, kernels and so on. So stay tuned and wait for the first custom ROMs for your Tab.

Froyo makes its way to everyone

Since the rumors for release of Android 2.2 Froyo everyone has hoped that his device will be among those, who will be getting this update. But since then not many devices received it. But this week brings some good news to the owners of several devices.

Let’s begin with Dell Streak – since its release, Streak is running one Android 1.6. An exception are the devices, running on the leaked and modified build of the UK version’s .2.1 update, but they are not so much. But there are some news from Dell – they say that Dell Streak won’t be getting 2.1 but it will be directly receiving FroYo. The rumors were for December 31st but Dell promised that Over-the-air update will be released much sooner than this. So take a deep breath and wait for that yoghurt.

Motorola Milestone European customers may also be happy, because Motorola announced that they are starting to make some user tests. Once they are complete, it will be clear if some further optimizations and changes should be made and then proceed to the final testing and approval stage. Motorola promises to deliver Android 2.2 to European Milestone users by the end of the year.

Last but not least, it’s a good day for Samsung Galaxy S users. Samsung has just released the source code of Android 2.2 for this device. Practically this means 2 things – firstly that the official update is very close and secondly – that the guys from XDA developers and other custom ROMs developers will start working on this and soon there will be some nice custom ROMs for everyone keen on rooting and flashing.
