Google rebrands US Android market as 'Google Play'

Google wants to sell you "content" that you might otherwise buy from Amazon, Apple or Microsoft etc. It has therefore rebranded the Android Market as Google Play, and pulled its apps, ebooks, music, and movies -- excluding its YouTube movie service -- into a single cloud-based offering.

Qik rolls out live video streaming for Google Android

My T-Mobile G1 is my preferred T-Mobile device and it just gets better and better all the time with more developers supporting the Google Android platform. The latest software/service available for the Android devices is Qik mobile video streaming application. iPhone users cannot say, "There's an app for that." since Apple still does not allow video streaming with Qik. I have been using Qik a bit lately on my Nokia N97 because it allows me to simultaneously upload videos I take to Facebook and YouTube, as well as my Qik site. The Qik Android alpha requires a device with firmware 1.5 (aka Cupcake) and a microSD card.

Review: Over 260 images and 5 videos of the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device

The biggest mobile news of 2007 was definitely the Apple iPhone and I think the biggest news of this year is the Google Android. I enjoyed my trip out to see the T-Mobile G1 launch last month and have now had the opportunity to use the T-Mobile G1 for almost a week. As a long time T-Mobile customer I am pleased to finally see a 3G device and one as functional and powerful as the G1. The G1 is not perfect, what mobile device is?, but after getting to spend time with it I am very pleased and happy I pre-ordered my own for delivery next week. You can check out my hardware image gallery with 57 pictures and my other image gallery with over 215 images that show every screen on the device, including pop-ups and options that appear with tap and holds on the display. I also have included 5 YouTube videos that show the device in action. The T-Mobile G1 is the first Google Android device and as I state below, the future success is largely dependent on developer ingenuity and involvement.

Countering an Apple-favoring .NET critic

iCall will let you transfer a cellular call to VoIP on your Apple iPhone

I was checking out TUAW this morning and saw that a very cool VoIP application is under development for the Apple iPhone. This is not an application for jailbroken phones, but for iPhones that have been upgraded to the latest firmware supporting 3rd party applications. What makes this VoIP application particularly powerful is the ability to transfer a cellular call to WiFi during the call as shown in the YouTube video below. iCall seems to work quite well and will definitely be one of the first applications I plan to look for when the iPhone application store is launched.
