Sony PSOne Games Coming to Android Devices via Playstation Suite!

PS Sony’s new Playstation Suite was not the show stealer at Sony’s press conference in Tokyo (see NGP), but it is still huge news for the mobile industry. Playstation Suite is a software framework that will allow Playstation One games to be ported over to Android devices running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) later this year. This is not only huge news because it’s awesome, but because it marks the first console maker to port over their own ecosystem to cellphones/tablets (In no small part due to the previous limitations of cellphone/tablet GPUs I’m sure).

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.

Apple allows 3rd party app ‘Fring’ to do video chat over 3G and Flashlight apps can use the new LED

Apple is not the type that allows apps in the App Store that replicate existing features. It may be possible that they are lightening up on the App Store restrictions. Apple’s brand new baby, the iPhone 4, has an LED light on the back of the phone. This LED is used for recording video and taking pictures. It will help add light to the scene. However, it can now be used in case of emergencies. Apple is allowing developers to put flashlight applications that use the actual LED for lighting in the App Store. Most apps just open up to a switch that allows you to turn the LED on or off. This has been available since the Motorola Droid came out on Android, so Apple isn’t the first, but it is surprising they allowed it none the less. That isn’t the only app that is surprisingly accepted into the App Store… Read more of this post

Nexus One owners can now have 720p encoding!

Well well well. Looks like the guys at XDA are  busy dropping code for the Nexus One. Next up? 720p encoding for your Nexus One. Now a phone already on the market a few months is upping the ante by being comparable to the iPhone 4 with it’s 720P at 30fps, and hasn’t been released yet. You must be running CM 5.0.8, it’s required, but Froyo support is expected sometime soon. Requirements include CM5.0.8 Test 3, which can be downloaded here. So if you are planning on loading this up tonight, we’d like to see some video results of the encoding. Please post a link or shoot us an email with your posted video test.

Steve Jobs D8 Interview Full Interview Video

Last Tuesday, an anticipated crowd watched as Steve Jobs appeared at the D8 conference to talk about Apple, iPads, and other topics. The full interview video has been put online at the conference website. Living on the East Coast, I have extra time to wait for the WWDC party to start on the West Coast so if you have time to waste before then, you should check out the 90-plus minute interview.  Here is a preview of the interview with Jobs addressing the lost 4G iPhone prototype.

Windows Phone 7 Foursquare Full Source Code Released

Windows Phone 7 devs have a reason to rejoice this Monday as news of the Foursquare full source has been released this evening. Microsoft/Touchalitly just released the full source code of the Windows Phone 7 Series Foursquare app which was demoed over the MIX event a few weeks back. This will give devs a chance to jump all over the code and see what the code monkeys can come up for Windows Phone 7 and Foursquare.

We consider this to be an alpha release, even though everything works, but mostly because we need to clean up the code to follow standard patterns and best practices for Silverlight and Windows Phone 7. When you only have a few weeks to get the application done “Copy and Paste” become your friends. Look forward to a much cleaner release soon.

You can download the package at codeplex’s website here.
