Want an Android phone that's 3x's faster? Myriad wants to give it to you.
Monday 08th of February 2010
A little-known member of the Open Handset Alliance has announced that it has discovered a way to juice-up Android’s performance 3-times as fast as current speeds. How? By replacing the standard Dalvik engine.Myriad Group will debut Dalvik Turbo next week at Mobile World Congress. Turbo is said to allow “OEMs and operators to bring smoother delivery and more complex applications to Android phones, while also providing substantial battery life improvements when running resource intesive tasks.”Dalvik is the virtual machine that runs Java (the language used to create apps) on Android. Without getting too technical, it converts and simulates certain elements to make Android apps run. All you really need to know is that this new technology would optimize the virtualization process, which would make apps on the next generation of devices perform the best they ever have on Android. It will also provide better battery life and graphics according to Myriad.The Myriad-created Dalvik Turbo replaces the standard version that ships with Android, and has been retooled to support

Google encouraging 18 month update pledge for Android phones - that's encouraging, not requiring
Tuesday 10th of May 2011
Google Android Product Manager Hugo Barra had our hearts a flutter when when he announced that Google is forming a task force to encourage companies to commit to updating their Android phones. “When hardware allows,” Android phone makers will promise to update new devices up to 18 months after initial release. The clouds parted, birds chirped, and all seemed right with the world.But the rain came back and the birds stopped singing soon after the Google I/O Day One keynote. Barra’s comments set off a wave of excitement, but only because people misunderstood his words. Google is not forcing carriers or manufacturers to update their phones; it’s simply working with them to make updates faster and more likely.Barra announced that several companies – HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and Vodafone – have formed a team to “create guidelines for how quickly Android devices will get updated after new platform releases.” This is really just a collective of companies that work with Google to determine

Google I/O: Android Keynote Highlights
Saturday 22nd of May 2010
The big Google I/O event wrapped up earlier this week and left behind a wake of drooling Android geeks desperate for some Froyo goodness. Froyo is the impending upgrade to the Android O/S. It is supposed to start rolling out in the next few weeks to phones, but we’ll see how the carriers cooperate with this schedule. As we’ve seen with the 2.1 update, the carriers tend to take their sweet time.I sorted through the live blog notes of the day two keynote over at cnet.com to give you the high points of what to expect from Froyo.Speed: they revamped some of the internals of Android to make things a heck of a lot faster.Enterprise friendly: the big one here is support for Exchange. Great news for all the business users out there. There are some other items that will help to make Android more business friendly as well, but Exchange support was the biggie.App data backup: they are making it easier for users to transition their apps from one phone to another by allowing the data to be brought over to a new device along with the app itself.Cloud-to-device messaging: th

How to root the original Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1000
Sunday 08th of April 2012
The Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 is one of Samsung’s first devices on the tablet market scene. Since its inception, the device had met positive reviews from consumers and critics alike. Armed with a 1 GHz processor and 7.0 inch touchscreen, the Galaxy Tab is one mean machine for everyday use.For Galaxy Tab owners who felt that their tablet is getting sluggish by the day, then you might want to try rooting your device. Rooting can be a daunting task to many consumers, most especially to people who are just getting to know the Android OS. But, once you gain root access on your device, the possibilities are endless. For starters, rooting can enable you to install custom scripts or even overclock your device to make it faster. Needless to say, the Galaxy Tab can greatly benefit from such modifications.Luckily for us, developers have already made it possible to root the Galaxy Tab painlessly using one-click methods. In fact, we feature three methods in this post: DooMLoRD’s Easy Rooting Toolkit 4.0, z4root method, and SuperOneClick 2.3.3 method.This guide shows you how to root the origina

Acer to Make Android Tablets Smaller and Faster
Tuesday 18th of January 2011
Acer is set to hit the tablet market in a big way this year. The company is starting its migration from producing Windows based netbooks and moving more towards a 7in and 10in version of Android tablets. This is great news for us. Acer makes a pretty good product, in my opinion.Lu Bing-hsian, Taiwan sales manager, said “They are aimed at phasing out netbooks. That’s the direction of the market.”What really excites me about this is something else Lu let everyone know. “We will use Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors, run an Android operating system and will use a four-core processor.”Now that is something crazy to hear. We have all just been ramped up to start seeing dual-core processors in phones and tablets. Now Acer is already talking quad-core. I can’t even imagine how stupid fast these things could be. The devices are slated to hit the market sometime this year. I might just have to hold off from the G-Slate and see how this all plays out.Source: ComputerWorld

how to make phone faster?
Wednesday 09th of March 2011
So I sold my Evo 4g and picked this phone up cheap, master reset and very few apps installed. It runs so slow, unbearably slow at times. Is there a way to make it faster? I like the android OS but if this thing has no solution I might pickup a Blackberry instead which I never had lagging problems with before.If rooting option, can someone who rooted their intercept give me feedback on it. Pros/Cons

Simple trick to make phone faster
Wednesday 19th of December 2012
If this is old news, then sorry about the re-post. (I'm an android newb) Someone showed me yesterday how to increase the speed of my phone in a few steps. Go to Settings > Developer Options> Advanced. Now from the advanced menu, change all animation speeds from 1x to .5x (there should be three) And there you go, you'll notice a quicker lockscreen and faster app launches. pretty neat! sidenote: I know this isn't technically making your phone faster (increasing cpu speed etc..) BUT with faster animations it IS making the phone work faster and appear faster

‘Project Svelte’ to end Android fragmentation issues once and for all
Tuesday 26th of November 2013
We first saw Project Butter in Android 4.1, which had the goal to make Android’s system processes “buttery smooth” by making the operating system faster, more reliable, and less prone to crashes.However, Project Butter didn’t do much on the memory footprint reduction front for Android. So, with the goal to make the newest features and design elements of Android work on almost any device, Android introduced Project Svelte in 4.4 KitKat.With the new OS, Android 4.4 can run on devices with as little as 512 MB RAM. (Of course if your device is older than 2 years or outside the support window you’re out of luck unless you want to root your device.)Four key elements of Project Svelte are as follows:Reduce the footprint of the system.Reduce the footprint (memory usage) of the apps that run on a Google Experience (Nexus) device.Fix how apps react and crash during bad memory situations.Provide better measurement and instrumentation of how apps are running in Android so developers can see how memory-conscious their apps are.In the end, while users may not notice
