Cyanogen mod is finally available for the Samsung Galaxy SII. Its not the final release yet, but I have been waiting a while for this mod so I jumped in as soon as they released their nightly builds for the SII.
The phone feels much snappier (if that is even possible) as there is now much less crap running in the background. And there is the usual tweaks of CM7, Like in the camera, dialer and other departments. But if you are using the SII as your main phone I would advise that you hold off a little while longer for a stable version.
Cyanogen Mod is available to a number of android devices. Check out their website to see if your device is supported.
Just got more of those great Samsung Galaxy S II’s. Friends and family members just keep ordering them. It is back in stock now on Expansys. So if you still fancy getting one, I suggest you follow the link.
Tasker really shows the strength of the Android OS and how its taking advantage of the openness of the platform. With this program you can automate almost any task on your phone.
Some examples of some profiles I have created for the App:
- Make your music automatically play when you plug your headset.
- Turns off the ringer and switch the phone to vibrate only as soon as I’m at work.
- Switch on WiFi and turns ringer volume on to half way when I’m at home.
- Turns on “Airplane mode” at midnight so I won’t get any notifications and turns the phone back on with my alarm.
- When the remaining battery life is less than %15, the brightness is switched down to minimum, radios are switched to 2G and GPS is turned off to conserve battery life.
These are just a few examples of what I’m doing with the phone.
This video shows you how to make use of the Voice Search function that is available in the Android OS. Its pretty powerful and useful.
Amazon’s long awaited Android app store has finally launched with a free exclusive copy of a new Angry Birds game. The sad news is, there is still no love for international android users. As purchases are limited to US costumers. Amazon is hoping for an international rollout later this year.
Yesterday we passed by Info Connect at the International Fair Ground to see what’s new. We weren’t expecting much from there except for some new DSL prices but we still had to wonder around checking stuff out before ManU/Arsenal – Egypt/Ghana games.
To our amazement we found a cleaning solution in an Tech/IT expo.
we ended up buying 3 of this AMAZING Kleaner :/
Also when walking around we noticed an unreleased Android mobile device on display in a protected glass case.
Yes it is the SonyEricsson’s upcoming X10. it will be the company’s first android device that should be available as early as next month.
Zidaneoo was also looking for a new laptop. So, we had a quick look around and saw an i7 and an i5 HP laptops that had a very good price. cant remember the exact pricing and specs. but I should have the up soon.
We took our time there wich made us miss both game’s kick-off. and when we got to Showtime’s booth i saw this.
Of course they were watching the Egypt game.
And when it was time to leave, it was raining and we were greeted with a lightnings show.
So, not much to say about the Expo. With the exception of semi-good ADSL prices.
I’ve been waiting for this app for a while now it it just got released recently. It can replace your current Android home screen with over flow of information making the Android’s home screen much more informative than it already is (using the notification bar).
This app is highly recommended and its free (ad supported) and only available for Android OS.
