Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:17 CET under 04 - Android News

The patent-issues saga, HTC recently faced, continues. After the problems HTC faced in the UK with the possible ban of the HTC One mini, HTC is now in even deeper trouble in Germany. As FossPatents published yesterday, Nokia just won a German injunction against HTC's Android-based devices over a key USB-related patent. According to FossPatents, "Judge Andreas Müller, the Presiding Judge of the 21st Civil Law Chamber of the Munich I Regional Court, granted Nokia an injunction against HTC's Android-based devices infringing EP1246071 on a "method of configuring electronic devices".

CHANGE: Facebook rolls-out all new Flat Design to Android
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:02 CET under 04 - Android News

Yesterday evening, Facebook pushed out its new Facebook for Android design to a broader audience, bringing a new look and feel to an Android device near you. Following its first Beta appearance in November, it seems that Facebook is now ready to give the new flat and somehow more Holo design to the public. Compared to the previous design, things changed a little bit. For instance has Facebook removed the slide-in menu on the left, only the Facebook Chat stays on the right, right next to the new search button. With the design change it's now possible to slide through the main menus in an Android Holo way, starting on the left with the News Feed, followed by Friend Requests, Messages, Notifications and More which includes Favorites, Pages, Groups, Apps and Settings.
