HTC Inspire 4G coming to AT&T, rocks the new Sense, Android 2.2, and a 4.3″ screen

So far today has been AT&T’s big day. They have already announced the worlds thinnest smartphone, the worlds most powerful, and now arguably one of the worlds most talked about. The HTC Inspire is obviously a rendition of the EVO 4G and the Desire HD. It is the Snapdragon HTC Sense 4.3″ phone we have all come to love. It is finally hitting AT&T! For those of you stuck on AT&T who have been dying for a serious iPhone competitor in the form of Sense UI and the latest version of Android, wait no more. The Inspire will launch with Android 2.2, but HTC has actually been pretty good about upgrading their high-end Sense UI phones, so I am willing to bet we will see Android 2.3 on this shortly after we see it hit the Nexus One. We basically know everything about this phone, it is similar to the EVO and Desire HD. So lets jump right into the specs shall we?

A Month With AT&T’s Samsung Captivate

Recently, I was given an opportunity to spend a good deal of time with AT&T’s flagship Android phone, the Samsung Captivate.  The Captivate is (Quite obviously) a member of the Galaxy S family, whose 4″ SuperAMOLED screens and 1GHz Hummingbird processors can be found on most of the worlds major carriers (See T-Mobile Vibrant, .Samsung Fascinate, Sprint Epic 4G, etc).  How does the Captivate hold up to my (often hyper)criticism?  Can I successfully remove the battery door without a heart attack?  Find out after the break!

Flash on your iPhone? YES!

Every iOS user knows that the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad does not support flash content on the internet. We’ve all wanted it, but Apple refuses to add flash support to the iOS devices. Third party applications for jailbroken iPhones can support it now with a plug-in called Frash, but what if you do not want to jailbreak your iPhone? Or simply can’t jailbreak it as of now? Well here is the solution for flash on your iPhone. You don’t need to jailbreak your iPhone or do anything special. All you need to do is download, Cloud Browse, from the App Store.  Cloud Browse is a Firefox style browser, which means the browser is just like the one you would have on your Mac or PC.

In MobileSafari flash content does not open up, but in Cloud Browse, it opens up and plays the full flash content. It is not as clear as a desktop browser, but it gets the job done when you need to view flash on the go. There are pros and cons. Pros are that Cloud Browse loads flash content that all iPhone users want. It loads web pages faster than MobileSafari. Some cons are, It is not as smooth as MobileSafari, like scrolling pages. Also the content is not as clear on the screen.

Here is the review and comparison of Cloud Browse to MobileSafari

Android App Turns Your Phone Into a Supercomputer… Kind of….

MIT recently released the news that they have developed an application for Android devices that uses models (which are created on an actual supercomputer) to give fairly accurate ballpark results to formulas that previously could not be solved in the field, and required direct access to a supercomputer. This application does not give precise results, but remains relatively accurate and performs said calculations in a matter of seconds. In contrast to the hours it would take a supercomputer to achieve precise results that is an incredibly impressive feat.

Netflix app updated, now works on your iPhone and iPod Touch

Today the long-awaited Netflix app is now available for download on your iPod Touch and iPhone. This isn’t just an app to edit and change your queue. You can actually resume or start playback on movies and TV shows in your queue! You can do so over both WiFi and 3G. We haven’t tested the app ourselves just yet, but we assume there will be some sort of video degradation to compensate for the lack of bandwidth while using 3G. We are crossing our fingers in hopes that it is better than the iPad version. Viewing videos on the iPad version is fine, but browsing the content is completely awful and laggy.  It is the exact same interface as the website except it is slow and gets stuck all the time. The more mobile-like interface on the iPhone version will probably clear up so of those issues. So what are you waiting for? Head over to the App Store and download Netflix.

Multifl0w brings multitasking to iPad, improves multitasking on the iPhone

I will preface this by saying that the application is for jailbreak users only. You didn’t think Apple allowed an app that changed multitasking in iOS did you? Well they didn’t, instead the creators of MultiflOw have their app for sale on the Cydia store for jailbroken iOS users. MultiflOw gives iOS users a very similar multitasking experience as WebOS or as the Safari browser tabs management. You can zoom out and see a cached image of all your open applications, then choose which one you want to jump back to. This application will definitely work better on the iPhone 4 compared to the iPad since the iPad only has 256MB of RAM, but it will work on either none the less. Now if only Apple could implement multitasking like this rather than the somewhat boring way of viewing different icons in a tray that they have now. Want to see MultiflOw in action? Check out the video demo after the break, then head over to MultiflOw’s website to learn more.

Apple hires NFC expert as mobile commerce product manager

As we just posted a story on Google and PayPal trying to cozy up to each other,  Apple has gone and hired a NFC (near field communications) expert to be their new head mobile commerce. Benjamin Viger, formerly product manager for mobile wallet, payment, and NFC at mFoundry, NearFieldCommunicationsWorld rounds up a plethora of recent Apple patent filings he just may be helping bring to market:

  • An NFC-based mobile payments service that lets consumers make payments to merchants and other consumers via a credit or debit card, directly from their bank account or using credit stored in their iTunes account.
  • The ‘iPay, iBuy and iCoupons’ patents, describing a comprehensive mobile payments, mobile commerce and mobile marketing business based around an NFC-enabled iPhone.
  • Products+, an NFC-based product marketing and promotions application.
  • An airline ticketing and boarding pass application that describes an unmanned, automated airport ticketing and baggage counter kiosk and introduces the concept of an automated security checking process where users of the iTravel app could process themselves through the security clearance system and check themselves in at the boarding gate.
  • The Grab & Go patent, designed to make it easy for customers to transfer files between devices such as the Mac, iPhone and Apple TV.
  • An NFC-enabled iPod, games controller, TV and iPhone.
  • An NFC-based concert, entertainment and sports venue ticketing application that includes exclusive bonus features for users of Apple’s service.
