Is there a big difference between the Le Pan one and Two?
Sunday 05th of February 2012
I've read that they both have two different versions of android;2.2 or 2.3 and 3.2 on Le Pan Two. I was just confused about which one I should get though. I saw the Le Pan one earlier today for about 200 bucks, it's the same price as the kindle fire. I want the Le Pan instead though because I can put my nook app and kindle app on the device without having to "root" it.(I'd probably jack the entire system up doing that,)Also the screen is much larger.But then I ran into the Le Pan ll and I was stuck in the middle about which one to get. I'm not really that big on apps, as long as it runs smooth and I can read my textbooks and novels on it. Maybe even browse the web and play a few games. I was wondering though are their huge differences as far as the apps go with both of them. I heard someone mention that their are not a lot apps compatible with the OS on Le Pan One. Should I get the Le Pan one or spend the extra 80 bucks on Amazon and get the Le Pan Two? Also what apps work on the Le Pan Two that will not work on the Le Pan one?Thanks
What are the differences between Carriers versions of android?
Tuesday 02nd of October 2012
Say for instance, I have a Cricket Wireless ZTE Score(X500) that I do almost all of my dev work on.I am wondering what makes my phone different in the fact that the apps I develop will work almost flawlessly on it but on another phone it will fail miserably. My phone is rooted, however the apps I make I double check on my fathers phone which is not rooted and running the same or a close to same version of the android OS.What makes the difference and how do I ensure cross compatibly?

Canada's Android phones come with Exchange support
Sunday 24th of May 2009
Canadian Android fans willing to sign-up with Rogers Wireless will have the incentive of built-in Exchange e-mail support. That means business users won’t have to shell out an extra $25 for an app that provides Microsoft Exchange Support. Instead, they’ll get that feature out of the box when they purchase an HTC Dream or Magic.Many businesses use a MS Exchange server to keep employees connected to their work e-mail, contacts, and calendar. The US and UK versions of the G1 do not have a built-in method to connect to an exchange server, requiring users to purchase a license and app like Touchdown or the momentarily free RoadSync. The HTC versions of Android that Rogers comes with will not require such a remedy, at least not for e-mail.Rogers selected to use the custom HTC version of Android rather than the standard “with Google” version seen in the US, UK, Germany, and several other countries. There are no known differences between the two aside from the HTC-created Exchange support seen in the phone and a tweaked Camera app. I doubt many Canadian users will
The Android source code on the Galaxy Nexus is Google's "trade secret"
Tuesday 01st of May 2012
I’m sure that most of our readers already know that Apple and Google are (and will continue to be for a while) involved in a number of lawsuits pertaining to various patents that one company or the other is supposedly breaking. What many might not know is that, in a number of cases, Apple has requested to learn information about Google’s services and software just so they can sue the search giant for supposedly breaking other patents after analyzing the data.The latest of these requests, made by Apple as part of the motion for preliminary injunction against the latest Google smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, is by far the most interesting of them all. Apple has requested to learn the differences — if any — between the open source Android code available at https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest and the source code for the Android version on the Galaxy Nexus. Even more interesting was Google’s reason for not being able to share that information: “Although Google releases some versions of Android through the Android Open Source Project, the intern
Prototype Xperia Arc Running Android 2.4?
Thursday 06th of January 2011
Apparently Gingerbread, like Elair, comes in two different flavors. We spent a few weeks oooh-ing and aaah-ing over Android 2.3, but of course heads turned very quickly to the tablet-specific Honeycomb, 3.0. Well apparently, Google isn’t done dishing out treats. It’s being reported that a Prototype Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc was mistakenly handed out at an event recently, and that the version on the device was Android 2.4. Changes between 2.3 and 2.4 are apparently pretty minor, much like 2.0 vs. 2.1. Apparently there are new animations when deleting items off the homescreen, and there are visible hooks for video calling — which, as yet, isn’t actually in place, but certainly could be soon.//Could this whole thing be a hoax? Sure. But based on the source and the specifics of the differences between versions, coupled with the rapid transition from Eclair 2.0 to Eclair 2.1, it’s pretty believable. Stay tuned, and we’ll bring more news on 2.4 as it arrives.[via Engadget]» See more articles by Michael Murphy//

Is there a basic guide to the main differences between versions of the Android OS? I am using a 1.6 Magic, am buying a 1.5 T-Mobile Pulse for my son and looking at a 1.6 Hero for myself early next year. I wanted to see what the differences were between 1.5 -> 1.6 -> 2.0. Also - I assume that I have to wait for network operators to provide updated operating systems? Can the Pulse be upgraded at all? Is the Hero getting/got version 2.0? Thanks
Differences between Hongkong, Chinese and European version of the milestone
Tuesday 08th of June 2010
Hey mates,I am actually in Shanghai during an exchange semester. Coz I want to get rid of my f***ing HTC touch pro with windows mobile, I have been searching for months for something better - and I am quite sure, that the Milestone might be my device. As it is cheaper over here (roundabout 2700 RMB) than in europe, I am going to buy it here. Is there anything I should take care of? Will the chinese or the Hongkong version also work in europe? Is it possible to load the German Version of Android onto the device later?What are the exact differences between those versions?Thanks,Hendirk
[Bug Watch] Stopping Apps On Android 4.4.2 Can Silently Kill Related Background Services, A Fix Is On The Way
Friday 07th of March 2014
One of the fundamental differences between Android and every other mobile operating system is the practically unrestricted capability to run services. Without this freedom we could not enjoy something as powerful as a homescreen widget or as straight-forward as a Twitter client with background updates. Aside from games and very simple utilities, it’s becoming increasingly rare to find an app that doesn’t run a service, at least for a short span of time. However, a bug has snuck into recent versions of Android and it can cripple background processing in some apps and widgets.Note: There are some technical details ahead, some of which may only matter to developers. Even if you don’t write code, don’t turn away. Everything should still be very easy to read and comprehend.What’s Broken?A great advantage to running a service is that an app’s interface can be closed but the process can continue running. This allows apps and widgets to rely on services to be operational without the user having to start up an app manually. Even in circumstances where a se
