BAN: Nokia wins another Injunction against HTC - Could result in Ban of HTC Android Devices in Germany
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". What's worst for HTC here is the fact, that this applies to all of the company's Android (but not Windows Phone) smartphones - not just one model!

Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:46 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Last night, Microsoft sent out an E-Mail to its Windows Phone customers where the the Redmond-based software giant thanks its customers by showing its "appreciation of Windows Phone customers" by giving them an extra 20 GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage. This is in addition to the 7 GB of free SkyDrive storage that all Windows Phone customers have at last. SkyDrive is built into Windows Phone, as it is in Windows 8.1, and similar to Dropbox, Box or Google Drive, it's a personal online storage that is accessible along with the photos and files at SkyDrive.com and through the SkyDrive mobile app. However, this goody has one drawback since it's only good for one year after that it expires.

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.
