In this hilarious mock up of Moses and and his efforts to help let God’s people go by crossing the Red Sea on foot, Mo, a Prophet who works for Pharaoh in Egypt must run for his life while assisting a variety of characters across dry land.  In Open Sea, your burden and task is to help lead wacky people: panicked girls, sleepy sloths, slow elders, zigzagging drunkards and dumbs who want to turn back, get to the other side safely while fending off the enemy.  As Mo, you’ll have the power to touch the sea and part it, swipe and shake your device to close waves and simply tapping on the screen sends lightning bolts towards the enemy.

Your adventure will let you cross heroes’ path, who will join the people and help them with miracles, like Jess who allows people to walk on water… And Abe, the Lovers, or El, whose miracle will allow you to turn villains back to ashes! And last but not least, take control of the legendary Nono’s Ark!

Open Sea! is a new unique action game for everyone, easy to grasp, but it will challenge your dexterity and tactical skills the more you progress in the adventure.
Gorgeous stylized HD graphics, refreshing addictive game play both simple and deep, cute and funny characters, humor, and catchy musics, are what you’ll get in this game… of biblical dimension!

tagged , , , , , ,

The Samsung Galaxy Note, that device that has been lurking in the back of every tech junky’s mind since it was first announced, has finally been touted as available by Samsung starting with European markets.  The hybrid tablet phone offers a Super AMOLED HD 5.3-inch display with a 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU under the hood for optimal use with its “many core on-the-go benefits“.  Expect the availability of the device on October 29th in which it can be found on sale with various carriers in the European market.  Furthermore, the device will sport Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a massive 2500 mAh battery to juice this bad boy up.

The 5.3-inch display will sport a 1280 x 800 res and there will be support for HSPA+ data speeds.  Add an 8 mp rear facing camera and 2 mp front-facer and the device is unstoppable.  And don’t forget the fact that Sammy is taking us back to the stylus days with the “S Pen” which will come standard on the device in a hidden storage compartment on the lower portion of the handset.  There’s also functionality for taking screen shots and annotating nearly anything on any screen using S Pen shortcuts.  I don’t care who you are and what you think about this massive device, this here is one sexy and functional piece of hardware.  Here’s to hoping and praying with the slightest bit of faith that the device will make its way into the US without having to pay an arm and leg before unlocking it.  What’s you’re take on the device?  Is it too big or just right?  Check out the videos of the device in action as well as some more drooling snapshots after the break.   » Read the rest

Logitech Revue Packaging Gets Android 3.1 Sticker

tagged , , ,

When I first saw the picture above I got really pissed, my Revue has been sitting under my TV just waiting for some official Android love to no avail. It wasn’t until I did some further research did I find out that the box pictured above is not loaded with Android 3.1 and shouldn’t hit store shelves until the Android 3.1 update actually rolls out.

This photo has caused quite a stir and subsequently resulted in a official response from Logitech:

Since the official release of the Google TV SDK, and more recently this little debacle, you can bet we will see Google TV 2.0 pretty damn soon. In case your curious what Android on your TV might actually look like, check out our previous post showing some pretty cool looking screenshots. I don’t know about you, but I really want Honeycomb and the Android market on the big screen, all from the comfort of my La-Z-Boy!

Leaks regarding the new Motorola Xoom 2 tabs continue to come to light at a rapid pace which is sort of an indication that the devices are nearing an announcement.  That, or there are some night fine ninjas who are doing a hell of a job sneaking this info out to the masses.  Either or, we’ll take it.  To add to the leak we’re now seeing the devices rear their faces in another system screaming with 4G LTE and large amounts of storage capacities.  The Mz617 could boast of a 10.1-inch display while the other, a “media edition” MZ609 will come in at a slightly smaller size.  According to the info in the leaked photo above, the MZ617 device will sport a storage capacity of 64 GB’s.  No word yet as to whether or not Motorola will offer a WiFi only version for any of the models, but if it surfaces you’ll be the first to know.  Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Samsung Exynos To Extend Battery Life Up To 70% With Arm’s big.Little Technology in 2012?

With recent leaks and mentionings of the Samsung Galaxy S III one has to wonder what kind of CPU will we see under the hood?  Recent rumors were that it’s possible we could see a quad-core 2.0 GHz processor in the first half of 2012.  And while that sounds a little far fetched, it may not be all that crazy after all.  With the recent announcement of the upcoming 1.5 GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 system-on-a-chip (SoC) which can be found on several Galaxy S II’s, it’s only a matter of time.  In slight contrast to the 4210, it will now be built with Samsung’s advanced 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process touting 30 percent lower power levels.  Subsequently, you can expect higher speeds on the GPU as well hence Sammy’s boast that the chip will perform with “50 percent higher 3D graphics performance over the previous processor generation from Samsung.”  Well, who in the world wouldn’t want a device sporting 30 percent lower power output while simultaneously offering 50 percent higher 3D graphics?   » Read the rest

Galaxy Nexus Confirmed European Launch – Nov. 17th

tagged , , , , ,

Yesterday, at the London Samsung Galaxy Note event, Sammy revealed that the Euro version of the Galaxy Nexus will drop on the 17th of November, mums the word for the U.S. still. Who knows what that means for us folks stateside, we still have faith that the leaked Verizon MAP holds some truth and we get to see the Galxy Nexus before the rest of the world.

As for the GN’s exclusivity to Big Red, obviously that’s not true internationally but may still be true here in the U.S. of A. One would think Verizon would try and pop that baby out sooner than anyone else so lets hope they give us an early Christmas present on the 10th of November.

Raise your hands if you’re interested in seeing the HTC Flyer’s software in action. Of course you all raised your hands, so you’re in luck. The gang at Pocketnow has provided a video of the tablet running with Sense 1.0 for tablets slapped on top of  Gingerbread 2.3.4. Overall it looks incredibly fluid and smooth especially with Honeycomb (and eventually Ice Cream Sandwich) out there. Among the noteworthy features are the HTC Scribe functionality to make and create notes, Press Reader, and Dock Mode. Take a gander at the video of the smooth-running Flyer after the break and let us know of what you think in the comments section.
