Twitter client Falcon Pro now updated to version 2.0

unnamed

The best Twitter client on Android (in my opinion) has just gotten better with its recent update to version 2.0. The popular Falcon Pro app now has the multi-user feature, a slightly re-designed UI and another “black” theme if you choose to apply it.

I know plenty have been wanting the multi-user support so I’m sure this update will make plenty of people happy. Links for download will be below!

AMD breaks from Windows exclusivity, will develop chips for Android and Chrome OS

amdandroid-100038793-gallery

Just as the title says, AMD has finally separated themselves from Windows exclusivity and plans on manufacturing chips for Android and Chrome based OS devices. AMD will make chips based on x86 and ARM architecture for both Android and Chrome. While AMD is still “committed” to Windows and will continue to provide chips for the company, I think it’s just near impossible for them to continue to ignore the possibilities and market for Android devices, especially considering the growth the OS has been achieving these past couple of years.

With that said, you should expect Android devices to carry AMD chips in the near future! Stay tuned.

Smartphones expected to grow by 32.7% in 2013

smartphone-comparison-2013a

In 2013, smartphones are poised to make  a big leap in growth. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), smartphones are expected to rise about 32.7% during this year which should reach in a total number of 958.8 million units, up from 722.5 million from the previous year. Now days smartphones aren’t considered a luxury item as it once was just a couple years back. With feature phones slowly going out of style and smartphones becoming more and more affordable (thanks to Android), many customers are making the switch. Starting this year, smartphones are expected to account for 52.2% of the total mobile phones in the world, an astonishing number if you ask me.

Cost effective and affordable smartphones is a huge reason for such a big leap in smartphone popularity. According to the IDC, smartphone vendors being able to provide cheaper and cost-effective 3G handsets alongside the more expensive 4G ones has really helped get these smartphones into peoples hands.

With smartphones becoming such a huge market in not only this year, but for the foreseeable future, I don’t see this trend ending any time soon. The smartphone market will only grow and continue to dominate the tech world.

Android chief Sundar Pichai reassures us that the Nexus program will stay alive

Sundar-with-HTC-One

With the current announcement of the two “Nexus Experience” devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, many have wondered what that will do to Google’s Nexus device line. Rest assured as Google’s own Sundar Pichai assures us all that the Nexus line will be alive and well. We can most definitely expect Google to continue, after all the sales of these Nexus devices has never been Google’s number one priority, having a pure Google device out there for developers and enthusiasts is why Google releases these phones/tablets in the first place. I truly feel that the Nexus line is essential and vitally important to Android’s ecosystem.

During the All Things Digital conference Pichai was also candid about Samsung’s huge success in the mobile industry due to Android. While some speculate whether Google should be worried about Samsung overshadowing them, Google and Pichai certainly aren’t and is happy with the success the South Korean company is enjoying. While the same can’t be said about the company that Google actually owns in Motorola, I’m sure Google’s plans for the company has still yet to be seen and with the recent announcement of the Moto X, maybe things may change in the near future.

What do you guys think about Google keeping the Nexus line alive and is happy with what it provides to the Android community as a whole?
