I would like to let you know about a new racing for Android: GrandPrix Live Racing! GrandPrix Live Racing sports a great physics simulation and 4 full 3d tracks based on real circuits of Silverstone ,Monza,Spa-Francorchamps and Interlagos with 5 different car models. Each one has its own power, grip and car mass. Once you pick one, climb behind the wheel and start your engine!

Don't have 3D capabilities or a super phone like the EVO or Droid, it's the Samsung Intercept, which is an updated Moment. Love racing games but unfortunately this phone can't handle graphics like the big boys out there. Really just looking for a fun game, doesn't have to be visually extreme.
Took a ride on my motorcycle last night with Droid in clip on case on my pocket. Drove about 1 1/2 miles when I realized it had fallen out of its holder. I back tracked and found nothing. Then my wife and I took my truck and went along the same route-nothing. Then (at this point mainly worrying about all the data in it if someone had picked it up) I walked with a flashlight the whole route while looking off the side of the road-still nothing. This morning I decided to take my bicycle and give it another try. About 1 mile from my house I spotted the rubber protector that surrounds the screen still near the edge of the road. I got off the bike and found the main section in a hedge so I have the battery and sim card. About 30 ft further I found the screen folded over and crushed. So I guess the battery and card might be ok but the rest is trashed. This one is insured by Asurion with an $89. deductible. (I ran over my previous Droid with my riding mower just this last May and I had to pay full price for a new one as it was not insured). I started a claim online with Asurion and the Droids are on backorder according to the site. I did this last night and reported it lost and possibly then stolen. Now at least I have the pieces.Does anyone think I might have a chance to get it replaced at the Verizon store?
It's a racing game , I tried it and I have to say I am amazed. On my HTC Magic it has perfect control's and very good graphics. I would seriously recommend this game. I tried the Free version but am Now going to purchase the full version.
We are small game-making team from Poland called Ratsquare. We finished our first game for Android: "Speed Forge 3D". It is a space racing game. It is already available at SlideME | Android Community and Application Marketplace or directly under: https://slideme.org/application/speedforge You can watch a short movie at.
Andorid makers need to step up the game, as the new iPhone is very good, reading about the iPhone 4 right now (WWDC, Steve Job keynote) i was really amazed, i don't own any apple product and i don't like apple close system.but: 960x640 (326ppi) IPS Display with 800:1 contrast ratio Long battery life (7 hours talk, 6 hours 3G browsing, 10 hours WiFi browsing, 10 hours video & 40 hours music.) A4 chip (as i understand it's really the main reason of the long battery life now offered) 3 axis gyro ( i didn't see that one coming), a gyro+accelerometer+compass=six axis aware device (The wood demo is really WOW) 5MP camera (larger sensor) + 720P HD video @ 30FPS + LED flash iOS 4!For me, more resolution is always better (and since the limit of the human eye ~= 300ppi) , all mobile phone should have a minimum of 300ppi.The new Gyro is a welcome move, as i always wanted my phone to senses when i rotated flat on a table. this will not only be great from game, but imagine Google earth with six axis awareness.The A4 and the longer life was expected, but nice move Apple .The camera was screaming for an update and the HD recording is a nice touch.I still preffer FroYo to iOS4 ... but iOS4 is really amazing with loads of new features.iPhone was behind in terms of the hardware, but not any more.
Is it possible to transfer Android tapfish saved game data to an iphone4?I just bought an iphone4 for my daughter cause it has more games then droid but shes really far in tapfish and doesnt wanna lose her data. Is it possible to get the saved data from the samsung galaxy s 2 into an iphone 4???
Anyone know if there is a game available like "20 questions" for the iphone? You think of an object and the game asks you a series of questions trying to guess what you are thinking. I just played 4 rounds with a fellow at work and its pretty accurate. Anything like that for the hero?
First time poster here. I'm finally nearing end of my dreaded At&t contract and want to get a Verizon phone asap. My iphone 3G has been great in some ways like ease of use and compatibility with lots of features I like, but it's so slow to use that I find myself wanting to throw it on the floor almost every time I use it. Keyboard lag, crashing apps, apps not working, and poor reception really make this device poor big time. So I'm interested in mainly the Droid 2 Global, but I'll also look at the droid incredible and Palm Pre 2. I know the droid 2 global isn't out yet, but it looks to be similar enough to the D2.
1. With the D2, can you remove the memory card and still use all functionality of the phone.
2. How much of the 8 GB memory can be used to store apps, music, photos, email etc? Is it similar to the iphone storage where there are no limits to the number of apps and app size?
3. Is there a podcast store like iTunes where you can download ESPN podcasts?
4. Can you disable flash content in the browser?
5. Is there a home button to wake the phone up from sleep mode besides the power button on the top?
6. Does the phone come installed with junk/useless apps (stuff like nascar...)
7. Does the on screen or slide out keyboard lagg in apps like the iphone keyboard does?
8. Is exchange email supported?
9. How do I get the contacts from my PC onto the D2? (I don't want my gmail or facebook contacts).
10. Is there a facebook app (not a widget) so that facebook updates don't constantly load in the background?
11. Can you make/download your own ringtones and sms tones?
As many of you have probably read, the Wall Street Journal said yesterday that Verizon will be selling the Iphone early next year.How many of you will drop the Droid X for the Iphone?I am so fed up with the 3g drop issue! Verizon sent me a replacement phone. Not only did the replacement phone arrive with the same 3g drop issues, the replacement phone has such a bad buzzing in the ear piece that it's hard to hear someone speaking!
Does that change how you view the iPhone in comparison to the Droid or Android in general?
Personally, I still prefer Android OS over iPhone OS because of open development and customizeability (sp?). Even though some people say the iPhone UI is super-smooth, I honestly don't see much of a difference between my phone's resposiveness and my friend's iPhone (but, maybe that's just my Droid). And looking at page after page after page of icons is just super lame to me. And the ONE advantage that iPhone has over Android (apps and games) won't be an advantage for long because:
A) Android is RAPIDLY catching up to iPhone in terms of sheer number of apps.
B) Android has more free apps (by far) than any other mobile OS (something like 58% I believe)
C) Android allows apps from "unknown sources", which is huge in my opinion.
With all of that in mind, I can't think of anything major that the iPhone has over Android. Granted, the iPhone is an awesome device and was a very innovative product but it's definitely not for me. Some would argue that the iPhone is better because it has iTunes and iPod integrated seamlessly but is that really a big deal? Just as long as Android is MP3 capable and has awesome 3rd party apps like "3" or bTunes (I think that's the name of it), who cares about having a fully integrated iPod?
Apple iPhone to soon get long-sought multitasking - Yahoo! News
Ok, im at work and have no computer to use outlook.. I've tried to download google sync for iphone but i don't think it exists. I would really like to stop carrying around this iphone and i don't want to enter each of my contacts manually. Any suggestions?
Is there a complete iPhone theme for the Droid? I love my Droid (it truly is the better phone), i just also like the simplicity of the iPhone...and I would like to be able to show my iPhone loving friends that their phone isnt that special cause my phone can do what they are stuck with Metamorph maybe?
(before you comment, remember i like the droid more. The iphone is very overrated.So no need to flame)
So the Droid X's talk time is stated to be 8 hours, while the iPhone 4's talk time is stated to be 7 hours. Does that mean the Droid X's battery will last as long as the iPhone's? I'm not exactly sure how battery length works.
BGR has a video comparison up. The Droid X has much better contrast both indoor and outdoor. The iphone has horrible bloom in highlights outdoors Which crushes all detail. I would even go as far to say that the iPhone video is really bad. Not surpisingly, he declares iPhone the winner because it is 30fps and not 24fps. Personally I couldn't see the difference between the two speeds.
via iSuppli ... iSuppli Does Droid Teardown, Finds $187.75 Bill of Materials and Manufacturing Cost - iSuppli
Ah, here we go again: another report from iSuppli breaking down the bill of materials (BOM) for one of our favorite smartphones. This time it's the Droid / Milestone under scrutiny, Motorola's beefcake slider that currently sells for $560 month-to-month on Verizon ($199 on contract). According to iSuppli's analysis, Droid brings a $187.75 bill of materials that breaks down into $179.11 worth of components and $8.64 in manufacturing costs. Naturally, the BOM does not include licensing fees, software costs, accessories, or the massive outlay this device has received in advertising support. Nevertheless, it makes for interesting apples-to-apples fodder when comparing costs with the Nexus One ($174.15 in materials only), iPhone 3GS ($178.96 materials and manufacturing), and original Palm Pre ($138 materials and manufacturing). The single most expensive component on the Droid is the 16GB removable microSD card ($35) bundled with the Droid. And after a controversial MOTO report that demonstrated a lackluster capacitive touchscreen on the Droid, it's interesting to compare the Droid's 3.7-inch TFT LCD ($17.75) and capacitive touchscreen overlay ($17.50) with that of the iPhone 3GS ($19.25 spent on a smaller 3.5-inch LCD and cheaper $16 touchscreen overlay) and Nexus One (whopping $23.50 for 3.7-inch AM-OLED display and $17.50 for the touchscreen assembly). Rounding out the top-end costs are the Droid's 5 megapixel autofocus CMOS sensor ($14.25), Qualcomm baseband processor / RF chip ($14.04), and TI application processor ($12.90).
