GameCommand Android app for Qualcomm launches CES 2012

Snapdragon_GameCommand-Thumb-300x300Last year saw Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor inside the cutting edge smartphones, which gave them a new class of power ready to be exploiting for gaming. Tegra 2 was new however, meaning most games were not optimized to run on their chipsets. Eventually their Tegra Zone app collected the games that would best show their gaming prowess. This year, Qualcomm are set to release their own take, called GameCommand, showcasing high quality immersive games as well as news feeds to keep updated on the latest gaming news.

It will feature over 100 titles optimised (and some exclusive) for Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, which are already present in high end smartphones today, such as the HTC Sensation and Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play. Find more in the PR, and look out for the app launching January 10th.

ZTE Tania Windows 7.5 Phone–Coming Soon

Screen Shot 2012-01-05 at 14.44.45

The chaps at Clove say they have had news that ZTE’s first Windows Phone will be hitting the UK next month. Priced at £208 ex VAT (£249.99 including) this looks to be a keen price for a pretty well specced and large phone. Pre orders are not quite available yet but Clove say it won’t be long.

This one looks a bargain if you ask me.

SANY0004

Top Trumps, now there is a blast from the past. But this morning the postman delivered me my very own pack of Smartphone cards thanks to Three.

I thought they were so cool I would do a quick video. I didn’t have anyone to play against so if you fancy a game please feel free to comment on the post and maybe we can arrange a Three top trump championship match!

Thanks again Three.

Android 4.0 (ICS) on the Google Nexus S – Video

Nexus S

Since I put Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, on my Nexus S the other week I thought it may be worth showing you too, what with the device costing only £199.99 now sim free.

The alternative to the Nexus S is the Galaxy Nexus and although bigger and with better specs it is more than twice the price.

Android 4.0 has been given some slight tweaks to compensate for the Nexus S having capacitive buttons under the screen and I am sure this will be much the same on all older models that will support Ice Cream Sandwich.
