Be Wowed By Shadow Galaxy Live Wallpaper For Android

One of the better Live Wallpapers I’ve seen to pass through the market has definitely got to be Shadow Galaxy by developer  We’ve seen a few Live Wallpapers from this developer before  and it looks like they are showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to innovation.  If you’re a Live Wallpaper buff, then this one has definitely got to make it onto your device and into a “this is freaking cool” folder.  Once activated, your desktop is immediately hurled into outer space where you’ll be lightly swirling through a vortex of galaxies along with distant shadows of bits and pieces of debris and planets everywhere.  It doesn’t get any cooler than this one folks.  The only thing that would make this wallpaper even more of a hit would have been to add some interactive functionality or some settings for speed etc.  Otherwise, this is sure to appeal to everyone and definitely something to show off to your non smartphone buddies.  Hit the break for some more pics of the app and to snag the QR code for the download.  Follow the market link for a video demo of the app in action.  Feel free to plug away in the comments below.    Read more

Droid X looks to be X-tra Large

Even in the shot above, you don’t get a sense of how big the thing really is, until:

NOW you can really see the size of this thing, in this shot, it looks to be almost a mini-tablet. Which isn’t to surprising, considering the screen is larger than the EVO’s 4.3″ and the Dell Streak’s screen is 5″

Some Quality Time With the Motorola Droid Xtreme

You’ve seen a “Regular” Droid, you’ve even seen an “Incredible” Droid, but now it looks like Motorola has an energy-drink chugging, skateboard loitering new model, the Motorola Droid Xtreme… and the guys over at Gadget University got to spend some quality time with this rip-snorter, which should be out in July.

According to the article, “the build quality is very similar to what we all expect from Motorola. SOLID.” They also go on to mention some aspects of the screen, saying that the quality and colors are much better than the original Droid. And at 4.3 inches, that’s exciting news. They did say that it is not an AMOLED screen, and may be the same type of IPS used on the original Droid. Click Read More to check out the specs and pictures
