Nvidia Tegra 3 based Asus Transformer probably called Asus Transformer 2

I think I am going to hold off a bit in getting my Android based tablet. The idea was to get a Asus Transformer which is a Nvidia Tegra 2 based tablet. The Nvidia Tegra 3 is the new Quadcore processor from Nvidia in the Tegra series and the next Asus Transformer will be sporting […]

How-to: Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on HTC Desire – Stock

At the moment it is almost impossible to get Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on your HTC Desire directly from HTC or any one of the operators.  In South Africa I would reckon that this will never happen.   Now what to do if you want Gingerbread on your phone?  If you not interested in the stock […]

Review: Dreamhost as a webhost – excellent experience and the best hosting I found.

I do not often promote a service but decide that one is worth promoting. I have been a Dreamhost customer for the past 3 year and have not had any bad experience yet. In fact the experience has been excelent so far.   I have been using webhosting companies for the past 10 years or […]

Is SwiftKey X Beta the best Android keyboard around .. I think so.

A couple of days ago I installed the new Beta of Switkey keyboard on my HTC Desire Android phone and must say I am impressed with it.  It is now called Switchkey X (assume the X is for next generation).  Here is a screenshot of the keyboard using Tweetdeck (my other favourite Android app).

The Asus Eee Transformer Pad was only released a couple of days ago and it already received it’s first software update.  Android was updated to version 3.0.1 and it mainly added new Asus Software that was not ready when the tablet was released.

Android Tablet from Lenovo – the ThinkTab

As mentioned in my previous post .. I am current investigation a 10.1 inch Android Tablet.  The latest one to enter is Lenovo Android Tablet with an optional keyboard. Here is the specs for it.   From what I could read, the USB 2.0 port is on the tablet and not the optional keyboard which […]

Android Tablet: What to get? – Asus EeePad leads the pack.

I am currently in the market for a Android tablet and are busy doing my homework.  Originally I was considering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 but over the last couple of days the ASUS EeePad Tranformer caught my eye. It has an optional keyboard in which the tablet/screen docks into.  This transforms the tablet basically into a netbook. […]

HTC Desire OTA update rolling out in South Africa – MTN network
