Rumor: Google Looking To Implement Google TV Into Next Android Version.


Yesterday we expressed our disappointment that Google TV has only ONE session dedicated to it at Google IO – it’s called “Building Android Apps for Google TV”. What gives? Isn’t Google TV the wave of our entertainment future? I believe so… and if Android’s success is any indication we’re all in for a big surprise based on what one of our trusted tipsters indicates.

According to our tipster, Google is planning to merge the AOSP (Android Open Source Code) of what are currently three different areas: Google TV, Honeycomb 3.0 (Tablets), and Gingerbread 2.3 (Phones). That’s right, Android Ice Cream will be ONE project for all THREE code bases. Better yet, we’re hearing Google plans/hopes to make this announcement at Google IO on May 10th/11th!

It already made sense that Android dominated Google IO sessions this year, but now Google TV fans can get excited – even without the lack of “Google TV” in the IO session titles. I’d be willing to bet MANY more sessions will include Google TV discussion than are indicated by the session load.



Droid X 2.3.3 Gingerbread port with Root & Deodoxed

Droid X Gingerbread

Well it looks like the Droid X got a face lift with p3Droids leaked version of Gingerbread. It also has improved the performance from the previous version of 2.2.1 Froyo. Screenshots show that the Quadrant Scores of Gingerbread blow Froyo out of the water. Now only if Motorola would unlock there bootloaders the Droid X would be competing with the best of the phones right now. You can download the new Gingerbread via TBH App on the market.



Looks like PSX4Droid has been pulled from the market. Conspiracy is saying that Sony has gotten involved in the situation and had Google pull the app from the market. The new Sony Xperia will have the Playstation controller built into the phone and will consist of the playstation market that will allow you to download games. Many people think that the removal also could of been from lack of support on the developers part. Ever since the new versions were released there were many complaints.
