DISTRIBUTION: Jolla sees a Sailfish OS Future on existing Android Devices
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:36 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

Following Jolla's "The Other Half" Sailfish OS-based smartphone launch last week, the Finnish smartphone startup has further plans for its Sailfish OS - to reach a critical mass. As Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimäki told Finnish Talouselämä Magazine, Jolla is going to let individual users install the Sailfish OS on Android devices that they already have. In an interview, Pienimäki said "That is the plan. We are on device business and OS business. It is fairly easy to install the OS on Android devices" and continued that "there is no such culture in these parts of the world [Finland], but there are people that are installing new operating systems on their devices. In China it is mainstream."

Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:57 CET under 04 - Android News

With millions of football (or how Americans call it: soccer) fans all around the world, there should be a market for such an app but it seems that, with only 50 - 100 Android downloads so far, FIFA itself failed to advertize it properly; because the football head organization has recently launched an Android and iOS app called "FIFA" which is said to be "the most comprehensive football app on the planet; unlocking the world of football". From the Bundesliga to the Barclays Premier League, MLS to La Liga, the "World Match Centre" provides unrivalled coverage of 197 leagues across the globe with hundreds of competitions, thousands of goals and over a million minutes of football every single week!

Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:18 CET under 04 - Android News

Do you remember mailbe.at I wrote about back in October? Today, Munich based ExB petitpetit announced the upcoming release of the the first - as ExB petitpetit describes it - "truly contextual E-Mail app", which integrates also tasks and calendar and proactively suggests information that is important to users, based on location and time. We all have a common problem: E-Mail overload, which is even worse on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, where we have to work with a more limited screen estate. And the sheer quantity of E-Mails we receive makes using E-Mail a daily chore we dread. However, ExB petitpetit said that E-Mail productivity on smartphones is finally becoming reality, with the help of mailbe.at.

LAUNCH: HTC UK unveils HTC One Dual SIM for the UK - Comes with Dual SIM sans LTE [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:01 CET under 04 - Android News

The HTC One is HTC's 2013 hero phone, that's clear, but the One has a widely unknown step-brother which is called the "HTC One Dual SIM". So far it wasn't available in Europe but HTC UK has now unveiled in its very own "Official HTC Store" that it's also coming to the UK. It's not too different from the original One, except that it is featuring - as the name is guessing - dual SIM capabilities. This allows to receive calls from either sim card at any time, to switch seamlessly between both sim cards while in a call, HTC Sense helps to manage calls, texts and data between SIM cards effortlessly and the on-board Dual Network Manager allows to select a preferred network and personalize the name of each SIM, eliminating any complexity.
